When Joe Rogan signed his $100 million deal last year with Spotify he assured fans he wasn’t going to be censored but that doesn’t appear to the case.

According to several reports, the popular online streaming service has quietly deleted dozens of episodes of “The Joe Rogan Experience” off their platform. So far 42 episodes of Rogan’s podcast are reportedly missing from Spotify, and they include interviews with Proud Boys founder Gavin McInnes, right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, comedian Chris D’Elia and many more.

Episodes that have been removed include interviews with far-right figures such as former Breitbart News editor Milo Yiannopoulos and Proud Boys founder Gavin McInnes, as well as four episodes with comedian Chris D’Elia, who last year was accused of “grooming” underage girls and soliciting child pornography.

Three episodes with Bulletproof Coffee founder Dave Asprey were also deleted from the platform, DMN reported. Asprey, who refers to himself as the “father of biohacking,” developed a high-fat diet that has been criticized for being “unscientific.” Vox called it a “caricature of a bad fad-diet book.”

It’s currently unclear as to why Spotify has removed these episodes but if you look at the list it’s pretty clear that a lot of them feature controversial figures.

Spotify has offered no explanations for its removals, or even addressed the repeated complaints from Rogan fans. Joe Rogan, on the other hand, has confirmed that Spotify removed certain shows as a condition of their $100 million agreement with him. “There were a few episodes they didn’t want on their platform, and I was like ‘okay, I don’t care’

Digital Music News currently has a running list of all the episodes missing.

As for the list, these are 40 titles we’ve confirmed as missing.

And given that Spotify has also had the episodes removed from other platforms like YouTube and Apple Podcasts as part of their exclusive arrangement, fans may have difficulty finding them.
