Joe Rogan, the American Comedian turned show presenter, released a Podcast in February this year and it was a smash hit on Spotify. But as the presenter used a lot of cuss words and some insensitive remarks specifically against a community, the music hosting platform removed the entire 70 episode series of the famous stand-up comedian featuring video game designers, technology heads like Elon Musk, Political stalwarts, sports persons, actors, musicians, fellow comedians, and business moguls.
It has surprised many. While some are aware of the latest developments and the consequences the UFC Color Commentator is going through, others are still searching for the latest podcasts related to martial arts fanatics.
Another reason for a strict action by Spotify to pull down Rogan’s show was the open letters given by about 270 healthcare professionals, scientists, and professors claiming Rogan to be spreading misinformation about Corona vaccines through his podcasts.
Without doing a proper check of facts and by just relying on the inputs of Anthony Fauci and Kate Bedingfield, the white house communication director; Rogan was found spreading disinformation that led to the ban of his podcasts on music platforms.
To catch up with the latest with Joe Rogan, many are turning to Adam Thorn, the co-host and creator of the popular “Joe Rogan Experience Review”. Thorne and his Co-Host Garrett Hess are seen highlighting their favorite moments from Rogan’s hit shown to date.
