Did they buy him to shut him down? (serious question)

He is/was an increasingly popular and influential voice that wasn't exactly rabidly PC. Can't have that.

Yeah that is very disappointing. At least he isn’t being a cock tease anymore and just chose his side.

him going to a more open and free platform (He could have made his own 24/7 streaming network) was an option. Instead he made a deal with another devil.

Unwatchable on video for starters. My retinas burn after about 5 seconds.

The guests in 2020 have been some of his worst in recent years. Doesn’t record as many as he used to lately and potential loss of control and not allowing specific guests to come on anymore which would be another ding.

Hey, Douglas Murray was a great episode. I agree with the retina-burning set, and content choices, though.

Douglas Murray was great. I liked the Snowden one. He's going to still get really good guests, but overall I'd put his 2020 year well behind any of the last 3 years prior at least.

You might be right, but it's also been a very weird year. That being said, I expect to be disappointed with the post-Spotify output.
I didn't at first, but now I do. Something clearly has changed. The missing episodes, that public apology which was very un Rogan like. He usually just apologizes on his podcast very casually and moves on and he doesn't release these over the top videos on social media. His attitude was always "don't listen to me, I'm a moron" and then he goes "I'm so sorry it'll never happen again." It does feel like Spotify has him by the balls.

If just one podcast of his is edited or we find out part of his deal was not allowing certain guests on the show anymore, I'll never listen to another episode of his podcast again. And going by the comment sections of youtube and reddit, I won't be alone on that.

I didn't think it was a bad interview. It was pretty obvious what they were going to discuss with all of the vegan meat and robot stuff behind her. I would rather see more triggering guests just to see how Spotify responds though.

There’s a rumor Brock

I can't breathe. 🤣 Uncle Joey is a blessing.
I laughed my ass off when I first saw this. I think Uncle Joey’s the one guy that can shoot straight bout Joe and all this nonsense.

I always take care that I don't change too many big things in my life at once.

I think Rogan did the contrary and pays now for it.

I skip the comedian episodes and I see NYT in the description I would have to assume she is awful. I would guess if she was even traditional liberal or not woke/sjw she would have been pushed out

Joe brought up a great point about the election. If Joe Biden was a Republican can you imagine the left rabidly attacking his mental capacity? They would. But as he is the Democratic candidate you CANT say anything about his age or mental wellbeing. So funny.

Trump's mental capacity is already being attacked. He got called stupid exponentially more often after throwing his hat in conservative politics when previous it was mostly just "rich asshole". Same with Dubya. And Reagan.

Bridget is great. She calls bullshit on both sides and is mostly fair. Also, she is not afraid to use the power of titties.
No kidding. Do NOT google this lady with safe search off at work!

DO google her with safe search off at home if you like candid nude selfies :p

Listening to the new one today with Bridget. Never heard of her before but I like her attitude. Actually comes off as genuinely funny.

Quillette is a pretty okay rag from what I've seen. Federalist writers have written for HuffPo too. I empathize with your attitude, but don't let it restrict you from potentially good stuff. (y)

with the left trying to cancel him for saying antifa helped spread wildfires, spotify actively trying to censor him and him having several consecutive guests that are either right or sympathetic to the right, they're probably going to double down their efforts on calling Rogan alt-right.

Fuck I need to catch up, haven't listened to any of the Spotify shit yet.

What's GAFs top 3 of the Spotify era as a starting point?

I saw that Tim Kennedy has been on so will def listen to that.
I usually like the Duncan Trussell episodes as well but 5 hours is a long fucking time - is it worth listening to it all?
How was the Iron Mike episode?

Any other episode recommendations?
