Joe Rogan sold out, literally, and should apologize for the deletion of now nearly 50 episodes from his decade or so long show archive — when he previously promised fans his exclusive move to Spotify would have no editorial impact over his show… lol, flash forward to today, all 7 of my appearances on his show have been memoryholed, and the plot thickens: it also turns out Spotify, Joe Rogan’s new master, is 10 percent owned by a Chinese tech company, and therefore has to comply with the rising sea of Chinese Communist Party “un-personing requests” of foreigners — meaning Americans like you and I, podcasting on our own soil.
Scary stuff, and instead of standing with free speech and the podcast community — or his own fans, or his own past repeat guests, or just common decency, which dictates you don’t mass delete many of the people who helped make your show what it was in its glory years. Shameful, and sadly perhaps only a sign of things to come in the West.
