Spotify Introduces New Joe Rogan Drama Content Advice Feature

“The Joe Rogan Experience” was in hot water just a few weeks ago. Several artists objected to “Spotify” hosting Joe Rogan’s podcast on their platform. This led artists like Neil Young to leave Spotify. However, the platform decided not to remove Rogan’s podcast. After all, it attracts millions of viewers.

To combat the problem of misinformation that many have accused Rogan of spreading, Spotify has taken a few steps, such as publishing its content policies. However, they didn’t stop there. As reported by ‘Technological crunch‘, the platform has introduced a new content warning on podcasts that deal with the pandemic.

According to the website, the notice is a blue-colored bar above podcasts that discuss the topic. Therefore, to date, over 1.4 million podcasts are labeled with the content warning. The platform reportedly introduced this new feature in February but was slow to appear for some users.

While there was intense pressure on Spotify to take action against content discussed on Rogan’s podcasts, the podcaster actively rolled out new episodes for its viewers. When he moved his work to Spotify, many were amazed to know that he had signed a $100 million contract. But it was revealed fairly recently that Rogan made double the amount.

Therefore, fans were excited to see him return to UFC 272 and call some fights. He also received a lot of support from the MMA community. As the next US-based PPV event draws closer, viewers are expecting him to be there and give his thoughts.
