Spotify seems to have removed dozens of them That Joe Rogan experience Podcast episodes from its platform.
In February it was reported that he had personally asked for 113 podcast episodes to be removed, including some featuring far-right commentators such as Alex Jones and Milo Yiannopoulos.
On this occasion, the missing episodes were explained away by a “technical problem”.
“Spotify is aware of this technical issue and we are investigating it now,” a company representative said Los Angeles Times.
The Independent has reached out to a representative for Joe Rogan for comment.
The commentator signed a licensing deal to bring his show and its back catalog to Spotify in 2020. The deal was rumored to be worth more than $200m (£160m).
The 36 newly removed episodes were reportedly taped prior to Rogan’s exclusive deal with the platform.
Earlier this month, the podcaster was heavily mocked online after realizing he had spoken about a fake news story while recording his podcast.
In the May 12 episode, the commentator announced, “I did a quick read and didn’t get to the article.” He then claimed that Australia was “trying to pass a law that would ban growing your own food.” .
Believing the story to be true, Rogan taunted Australians over the bogus bill proposal and called the lawmakers who didn’t exist “fucking creeps” – before falling short when trying to verify the story himself.
After a search was unsuccessful, he called out to his guest: “Yes, I can’t find it either. hell again! better not be fake It could be fake.”
