    Joe Rogan Explains How The “Cancel Culture” Worked In His Favor And Not Against

    Who doesn’t remember the famous scene where Elon Musk smokes weed during a podcast with a big guy sitting with him wearing headphones around his neck. The big guy is Joe Rogan. His podcast, The Joe Rogan Experience has earned him a name in the world. His podcasts are viral and trending all around the year.

    Joseph James Rogan is an American podcaster, comedian, performer, and former television host. Rogan is also a color commentator for the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). He broadcasts The Joe Rogan Experience. A podcast in which he and a range of guests discuss current events, humor, politics, philosophy, science, and hobbies.

    He started The Joe Rogan Experience in 2009, and by 2015, it had become one of the most popular podcasts on the planet. It has millions of downloads per episode. In 2020, Spotify paid $100 million for exclusive licensing rights to The Joe Rogan Experience. In 2022, Rogan made headlines when he hosted physicians on his podcast who spread false information about COVID-19.

    The podcast is always surrounded by controversies recently there were attempts to cancel the whole show.

    What Joe Rogan Said About The Increment In Subscribers

    Joe Rogan claimed that he gained subscribers even though people were trolling him for his past episodes. In his last episode, he had called in alleged anti-vaxxer guests and then dropped the “N-Bomb”.

    He gave an interview with British commentator Douglas Murray where he said, “It’s interesting, my subscriptions went up massively — that’s what’s crazy. During the height of it all, I gained 2 million subscribers …”

    According to The Hollywood Reporter, while Spotify does not publicly publish the number of JRE customers, sources suggest that his subscriber base has increased steadily since he joined the platform – and not owing to a single event.

    Throughout the program, the “cancel-proof” UFC pundit chastised CNN for wrongly reporting that he had taken “horse dewormer” for COVID.

    How Did Spotify React To The Cancellation Attempts On The Podcaster

    Rogan has gotten himself into trouble over a “JRE” episode that aired on New Year’s Eve. In it, guest Dr. Robert Malone, who is rumored to hold anti-vax beliefs, contrasted the current state of public health in the United States to that of Germany in the 1920s and 1930s.

    In reaction to that, A-list musicians from Joni Mitchell to Neil Young took their music off Spotify. It was in an attempt to persuade the company to remove the podcasting behemoth. Meanwhile, Rogan watchdogs made news the same month after uploading clips of the comedian repeatedly using the N-word in his podcast.

    Spotify never agreed to the cancellation efforts, although it did remove over 100 recordings, some of which contained well-known conservatives, far-right pundits, or conspiracy theorists, such as Gavin McInnes of the Proud Boys, Michael Malice, Alex Jones, and Milo Yiannopoulos.
