    Rogan is free to run his podcast how he sees fit (under Spotify’s guidelines, of course); artists are free to pull their music from the service as they see fit; Spotify is free to choose who to side with.

They don't even have to pick a side in that case if Young can pull his music and Rogan can run his show as he sees fit.

    Agreed. As far as I can tell no one’s freedoms are being violated. The controversy is only coming from those who either want to cancel Rogan, or those who don’t think Young should be free to associate (or not associate) with whomever he chooses.

      Someone below made the case that Rogan can be engaged with, but I’m not entirely convinced. If he were at all interested in having dialogue with guests who challenge his vaccine skepticism he would’ve already invited them to his show, yet afaik he hasn’t.

    I don't know in general but the video I linked from Jon Stewart had him reference an episode where Rogan's guest was challenging Rogan on vaccine facts and that Rogan said "let's look it up" and they looked it up and Rogan concluded he was wrong (on that one issue). In the past I have seen guests challenge Joe on other topics and have him change his mind.

      Yeah, the video was of Rogan making the claim that there’s a higher risk of myocarditis from the vaccine than from Covid itself. When his guest challenged his claim he looked it up, all well and good. However, once his guest was proven right, Rogan immediately pivoted to questioning the veracity of the information.

      Again, I’m no fan of cancelling the guy. I’ve seen vids of him dunking on flatearthers and taking Candace Owens to task; I’ve also seen vids of him giving Alex Jones and his warped-reality a platform. Now there’s a montage out there of him using the n-word which is horrible itself, but I'm willing to bet my last dollar that each use of the word is taken out of context.

      I agree that he probably can be engaged, but this instance of myocarditis isn’t a good example of that.


      One of the comments in the video I linked says that later in the podcast, Rogan admits that he mixed things up, so perhaps he does ultimately become convinced.
