Spotify snags Joe Rogans podcast as its latest exclusive

Spotify has added another major podcast to its audio war chest: The Joe Rogan Experience. On September 1st, the show will arrive on Spotify for the first time, with all users (including those on the free tier) having access to the full JRE archive. At some point before the end of the year, the podcast will become a Spotify exclusive. 

The video version of the podcast is also moving to Spotify (which started testing video podcasts this month) as part of the multi-year deal. The show’s YouTube channel will remain active, but Rogan said it’ll only host clips rather than full episodes. He’ll also retain full creative control and ownership of JRE.
