This could backfire for Spotify where Rogan fans, who tend to support free speech, end up canceling their memberships rather than signing up.

I’m already thinking of trying out the Napster app which another OGer said was a good alternative.

I don't care about the cry babies. But Joe groveling for forgiveness twice is exactly what they wanted. He will either now have to leave Spotify or bend the knee and change the podcast to suite their demands. I mean it's only the third show on the platform and they already have him on his knees.  Imagine what it will be like in a few months from now.

Did you write 'censoring free speech' under reasons for cancelling.

It would be hilarious if Rogan manages to start a movement of his fans doing just that.

Lol
