The podcasting world shook on May 20th when Joe Rogan announced that the Joe Rogan Experience would be exclusively on Spotify. This is a massive move for not only Joe but also for the chess board that is podcasting.
Additionally, Joe Rogan has been an open critic of Youtube and their censorship issues in the long term. The power play of the decade was made by Rogan to remove his show from the platform that arguably brought the podcast to the mainstream.
Youtube will undoubtedly see more creators especially within the podcasting niche flee the platform for more sustainable options.
Subsequently, this episode of Oddly Observant breaks down the chess board that is the podcast industry after the conclusion of the historic podcast IP deal.
