    If they decide to not broadcast his shows, he still made the big bucks and has other avenues of income. It would be a shame, but wouldn't hurt him at all.

    If I wasn't pretty familiar with TV and radio I wouldn't refer, with any level of surprise, as to who was "on my radar" from TV or radio.

    To me Spotify employees could leave and find another job if they do not like the content. Nobody is holding a gun to their head to stay, or maybe someone is? When I lived in PA years ago I belonged to a gun club that was over 100 years old in Bucks County. A couple moved in across the street from the club and tried to shut it down because of the noise. They sued the club and the judge threw the case out, his question to the couple was what sound did you think a gun club makes before you bought the house.

    Quit worrying about Rogan being a libertarian.

    He has a big microphone and has introduced conservative values to millions that would have otherwise never heard of them.

    And the big thing is he belittles Biden as much as possible which has planted a seed of doubt in the millennials minds.

    He has had countless hard core conservatives on his show which have shown him the light. He's on our side.

    This is going to be REALLY interesting. The bottom line is drawn very seriously in this case. The most watched podcaster in the country verses the woke élite. Money verses being woke. Why sign up the most watched guy in the US if you are going to change him? Doesn't make sense. Is Spotify that woke that they would waste 100 million dollars on it? Go Woke, Go Broke!

    Money talks and caca walks. He will do what his bosses say. I liked him because years ago he said he had FU money and wouldn't let his voice be censored. Principles are on short supply in this country.

    All I can say is 'News Radio' was one of the best tv shows ever! Oh man Andy Dick before he totally went off the rails, the whole cast was perfect and hilarious!

    One thing I don't like about Rogan is the controversy from a few years back where he and some other comedians tear into other comedians for what they believed to be stolen jokes. I thought it was all very petty.

    "Earlier this year he signed an exclusivity deal with Spotify for a reported $100 million. That has never happened to a podcast before. In fact, nothing close to that has happened to a podcast before. Spotify’s stocked jumped so much following the news that it gained $1.7 billion in value."
    Chris Martin

    Coincidentally enough, this morning I followed a link from Tim Challies' website to an author named Chris Martin to find out about Joe Rogen.

    Hard to believe they would flush a portion of 1.7 billion dollars to prove how 'with the times' they are, but one never knows.

    Now I know who Joe Rogen is. :cowboy:

    First time I saw Rogan he was the host of some dare show. Everything from eating Black Widows to jumping off buildings....or some things similar. Nothing I'd ever care to do, but was fun to watch.

    yeah, the show was Fear Factor. I remember once they had huge hissing roaches and this girl was supposed to eat one and was squeamish. Rogan told her, tell you what, I will eat one if you do. He did, then said: and THAT is why I'm the host of Fear Factor

    No it's not a couple of people. It's more like the entire H.R. dept and marketing. Lots of people with worthless sjw degrees wind up there.
