Podcaster Joe Rogan has pledged to offer balanced views on his podcast after musician Neil Young accused him of spreading Covid misinformation.
Joe Rogan has come under criticism from musicians Joni Mitchell, Nils Lofgren, and Neil Young who have accused him of spreading Covid misinformation.
The musicians have requested that Spotify remove their music from the streaming platform as a result.
In a response to this, Spotify says that it is working to put advisory warnings to any podcast that discusses Covid-19 moving forward.
The Joe Rogan Experience is one of Spotify’s most listened-to podcasts with each episode averaging 11 million listeners. He recently had Dr. Robert Malone MD, who was one of the inventors of the mRNA vaccine, the one that all the available Covid 19 vaccinations are based on. He has also had the cardiologist Dr. Peter McCullough.
Both doctors expressed views that are different from the mainstream information being provided by the governments.
In his Instagram post, Rogan said that he had “never tried to do anything with this podcast other than just talk to people”.
“My pledge to you is that I will do my best to try to balance out these more controversial viewpoints with other people’s perspectives, so we can maybe find a better point of view,” he said,
