Spotify Secures Joe Rogan Experience Exclusive
May 20, 2020
Joe Rogan Experience, one of the most popular podcasts in the world, is
coming to Spotify via a multi-year exclusive licensing deal. The 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 vodcasts on Spotify, it will remain free and accessible
to all Spotify users.
Since its launch in 2009, the pioneering Joe Rogan Experience (JRE) has
broken ground and 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 dynamic and diverse guests, he fearlessly broaches
far-ranging 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 wildly popular podcast format, JRE also produces
corresponding video episodes, which will also be available on Spotify as
the JRE to Spotify will mean that the platform’s more than 286 million
active users will have access to one of culture’s leading voices. By
partnering with Spotify, Rogan and his team will enjoy the support of
the world’s leading audio platform.
From his earliest days behind the mic, Joe has been a commentator,
fixture, and driving force in culture helping to lay the foundation for
the podcasting renaissance we are experiencing today. While Spotify will
become the exclusive distributor of JRE, Rogan will maintain full
creative control over the show.
This partnership represents a major addition to the already unrivaled
slate of exclusive audio content available to audiences on Spotify.
The JRE will debut on Spotify on September 1, 2020, and become
exclusively available on the platform later this year.
