Spotify Acquires The 500 with Josh Adam Meyers



The 500 with Josh Adam Meyers is now a Spotify Original. The podcast will also continue to be available on Apple Podcasts, Google Play Music, Stitcher, SoundCloud, YouTube, and other podcast platforms.

The 500 with Josh Adam Meyers counts down Rolling Store Magazine’s 500 Greatest Albums of All Time with comedians, actors, and musicians, using facts from the albums and song meanings as a road map to interview each guest. Previous guests include Bill Burr, Jim Jefferies, Wanda Sykes, Kevin Nealon, and Bert Kreischer, all sitting down with Josh to talk about the album and life.

The 500 describes itself in interesting ways. It is “the first Music Album Book Club representing the next decade of his life’s work talking to creatives about the greatest recorded music in history.” It also is the only podcast where you know when it will end, on May 31, 2028.

Hollywood Reporter says that Spotify acquired the nine-month-old Josh Adam Meyers-hosted show and is turning it into a Spotify Studios Original. The first episode to be released as a Spotify Original will be R.E.M.’s Document and will be streamed on Spotify beginning July 31, 2019.

Previously, Spotify launched Jemele Hill is Unbothered (hosted by Jemele Hill) as a Spotify Original. Topics include intersectionality between the worlds of sports, politics, music, identity and culture.

The Joe Budden Podcast is also on Spotify. This show is a go-to listen for hip-hop and rap culture enthusiasts. It is hosted by Joe Budden, and co-hosted by Rory and Mal. They discuss hip-hop music and news, conduct interviews with artists and cultural luminaries, and touch base on cultural events.
