The Joe Rogan Experience podcast has officially moved to Spotify in a reported $100 million deal but it seems that not all of his episodes made it to the streaming platform.
On Monday, fans of the JRE podcast noticed that dozens of past episodes with controversial guests are missing from the new Joe Rogan Experience channel on Spotify.
Interviews with the controversial figures Alex Jones, David Seaman, Owen Benjamin, Stefan Molyneux, Milo Yiannopoulos, Gavin McInnes, Charles C. Johnson, and Sargon of Akkad did not make the initial jump over to Spotify.

Other interviews with comedian Chris D’Elia, who was recently accused of making sexual advances towards underaged girls, were also missing. The infamous episode where Joey Diaz brags about coercing female comedians for stage time didn’t appear to make the cut either.
Here’s the entire list of missing episodes (via u/BillBurrFan420 on Reddit)
Fans who thought Rogan was going to be given more freedom on the platform were not happy about the missing episodes.

Joe Rogan signs deal with Spotify.
Spotify takes Joe Rogan live on its platform, but deletes most of his right-wing guest episodes.
It's so obvious we're under attack at this point. https://t.co/Joop5b8AMM

Yo @joerogan wtf is this shit? I thought part of the deal with @Spotify is that they wouldn't censor you? Where is Alex Jones and many others? pic.twitter.com/ANACkHGa1j

Cant really blame Joe Rogan for signing a multimillion $ deal with spotify that would exclude podcast episodes ft. Alex Jones. I mean, if YOU already had tens of millions, wouldnt you sell out your decades long friend for a few dollars more?

Nobody tells me what to do or say.
Here’s $ 100 million.
