I, like many others, switched to using Spotify for Joe Rogan's podcast. When Joe Rogan first announced he made a deal with Spotify, the first thing I thought was that he was going to be controlled and censored. The reason many people watch/listen to Joe Rogan's podcast is because it seems to be uncensored. He and his guests seem to talk about whatever they want. Joe Rogan constantly talks about his freedom of speech on his podcast, that it's his platform and nobody can stop him from talking about something he wants to talk about because it's his podcast. Spotify seemed to not care about this, because some of the BEST episodes of his podcast, and episodes with the most views, were not added and according to VICE, Spotify isn't going to add them. This is the opposite of what Joe Rogan said would happen and I feel betrayed, let down, and scared that even Joe Rogan, a champion of free speech, is getting censored on HIS OWN PODCAST!
People look up to him to champion free speech and fight for these rights because he's reasonable and has a big platform.
SPOTIFY, STOP CENSORING PODCASTS! PODCASTS BECAME PODCASTS BECAUSE THEY'RE UNCENSORED AND UNCONTROLLED. YOU, LIKE OTHER BIG COMPANIES LIKE APPLE, ARE RUINING THE ENTIRE IDEA OF PODCASTS AND IT'S EXTREMELY SAD.
SPOTIFY, GET IT TOGETHER AND STOP CENSORING PEOPLE BECAUSE LESS THAN 1% OF PEOPLE DECIDED TO THROW A FIT AND BE LOUD.
