My Response to Joe Rogan’s $100 Million Deal with Spotify - YouTube

Joe Rogan is leaving YouTube. Patrick Bet-David gives his perspective on the $100 million Spotify deal and what it means for content creators. “The popular podcaster sold his 11-year-old “The Joe Rogan Experience” series to Spotify SPOT+8.44% in a licensing deal that’s reportedly worth more than $100 million, The Wall Street Journal reported on Thursday. Rogan’s full library — which adds up to almost 1,500 episodes, which weren’t available on the streaming service before — will hit Spotify beginning Sept. 1. Episodes of the video podcast are currently available on YouTube, but will move off the Alphabet GOOG+2.42% platform to be exclusive to Spotify by the end of the year.”


This is great. Joe tells youtube to stuff it. They don't get to censor him anymore. How does it feel, youtube? It's just the beginning.
