It’s been no secret that some episodes of Joe Rogan‘s podcast were not transferred over to Spotify when the streaming service became the exclusive home of the Joe Rogan Experience and Rogan himself recently confirmed that “a few episodes” were not moved over to Spotify. However, Rogan followers have recently discovered that “a few” is in reality at least 40 episodes, with a list of which ones included in this article.

Since the move to the streaming service took place, fans have been highlighting some of the episodes not on Spotify, including some from controversial Infowars creator Alex Jones and alt-right media personality Milo Yiannopoulos. Rogan confirmed in February that some of his past episodes wouldn’t be transferred but denied claims that Spotify was “censoring” his show or vetoing his guests.

Rogan announced his massive Spotify deal in May 2020, which saw the Joe Rogan Experience‘s thousands of episodes from over 11 years of podcasting transfer from various platforms to Spotify. The podcaster’s deal with Spotify is estimated by the Wall Street Journal to be worth over $100 million.

Rogan Revealed That Spotify Told Him There Were Some Episodes That Wouldn’t Be Added to the Platform & He Said ‘I Don’t Care’

Earlier this year, Rogan confirmed that he was aware that Spotify had decided to exclude some of his content from the streaming platform’s library. In a February podcast episode with comedian Fahim Anwar, Rogan said Spotify notified him that some episodes wouldn’t be making the switch to the platform according to their deal and that he accepted the decision.

In recounting the story and showing that his guests aren’t being vetoed by the streaming service, Rogan pointed to a podcast he did in October 2020 with Alex Jones and comedian Tim Dillon, which took place after the Spotify deal:

There’s a few episodes they didn’t want on their platform that I was like ‘OK, I don’t care.’ But other than that, in terms of what I do in the future, the big test was having Alex Jones on. A lot of people were like ‘They’re telling Joe Rogan what he can do and what he can’t do’ and I was like, ‘they’re not. They’re not. And let’s show you.’ Alex Jones and Tim Dillon was like one of my favorite podcasts I’ve done.
