The relationship between Spotify and Joe Rogan gets more interesting by the day. And it highlights the difference between working in the corporate world as opposed to being your own boss.
Digital Music News is reporting that unhappy Spotify employees are demanding they be allowed to control Joe Rogan’s work.
Rogan signed a multi-million deal with the streaming company earlier this year to take the majority of his content over to Spotify exclusively. Once he made the move fans immediately noticed that some of his shows, an Alex Jones interview for example, were missing.
Digital Music News is reporting that the latest uproar is over a conversation Rogan had with author Abigail Shrier, who wrote Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters. Spotify staffers were not happy with Shrier’s opinions and they demanded the show be removed. It was not. They reportedly want direct editing oversight on Rogan’s podcasts before they go live.
The website is also reporting that this issue has gone all the way up to CEO Daniel Ek who’s pushing back on the employees.
