But this wasn't all celebratory for segments of his devoted fanbase, who noticed that more than 40 Joe Rogan Experience episodes didn't make the leap over to the platform. Some of his most controversial episodes — including interviews with conspiracy theorists and alt-right stalwarts like Alex Jones, Milo Yiannopoulos, Gavin McInnes, and more — aren't available to stream on Spotify.
As Entertainment Weekly points out, a few exceptions seem to cut across political lines. Chris D'Elia, the disgraced comedian recently accused of grooming, sexual harassment, and soliciting nude photos from underage girls, doesn't appear on the Spotify page. Curiously, episodes with Nick Kroll and Tommy Chong also missed the cut.
