The Joe Rogan Experience podcast, which announced it would be moving exclusively to popular streaming service Spotify in May 2020, launched on the streaming platform today.

Users quickly noticed, though, that potentially controversial episodes had been removed, including episodes with Milo Yiannopoulos, InfoWars' Alex Jones, and Censored.TV's Gavin McInnes.

Additionally, episodes featuring Mikhaila Peterson, Louis Theroux, and comedians Chris D'Elia and Joey Diaz, have been deleted.

"This is straight up censorship. This is absolutely ridiculous. My episode with Joe is #1164. It is NOT on Spotify," said Mikhaila Peterson—daughter of Jordan—in a tweet.

Episodes featuring Alex Jones are among Rogan's most popular, with episode 1255 "Alex Jones Returns" being second most viewed installation of the entire series at 22 million views, behind only Tesla founder Elon Musk's first appearance at 36 million views—and several million more audio-only downloads.

When speaking about Spotify's censorship to The Post Millennial, Gavin McInnes said: "I think [Joe Rogan] did the right thing. Milo, Alex and I are far too dangerous to be given a voice. We might change someone's mind."

"Best go the way of Facebook and Twitter and Instagram, and only allow speech that fits into a small window of acceptable ideas," McInnes continued. "I mean, why risk doing anything dangerous?"
