THE Spotify did not abandon Joe Rogan and Joe Rogan will not abandon the streaming platform. During a stand up show in Austin, Texas, Joe Rogan confirmed that it will keep its podcast at the Spotify, implying that it will not accept proposals for other services. The statement came after a fan asked if he would change the hosting of the The Joe Rogan Experiencethe most listened to podcast in the world.
