The Joe Rogan Experience, one of the most popular podcasts in the world, is coming to Spotify via a multi-year exclusive licensing deal. The comedy talk series has long been the most-searched-for podcast on Spotify and is the leading show on practically every other podcasting platform. And, like all podcasts and vodcats on Spotify, it will remain free and accessible to all Spotify users.
Since its launch in 2009, the pioneering The Joe Rogan Experience (JRE) has built one of the most loyal and engaged fan bases in the world. Rogan brings his sensibilities as a stand-up comic to the show, and alongside a dynamic and diverse range of guests, he fearlessly broaches topics including neuroscience, sports, comedy, health, infectious disease, and our ever-changing culture – all with a mix of curiosity and humor.
In addition to the widely popular podcast format, JRE also produces corresponding video episodes, which will also be available on Spotify as in-app vodcats.
While Spotify will become the exclusive distributer of JRE, Rogan will maintain full creative control over the show. Bringing JRE to Spotify will mean that the platform’s more than 286 million active users will have access to one of the leading voices of today’s podcasting renaissance.
The JRE will debut on Spotify on September 1, 2020, and become exclusively available on the platform later this year.
