Joe Rogan, a comedian and host of the hit podcast, “The Joe Rogan Experience,” has come under scrutiny in recent weeks for promoting Covid-19 misinformation. Spotify, which owns exclusive rights to Mr. Rogan’s show, has been criticized as the platform for the misinformation.

Neil Young and Joni Mitchell removed their music from Spotify in protest. Now, a compilation of video clips of Mr. Rogan using a racial slur on past episodes has surfaced, drawing more outrage.

We look into the scandal engulfing the streaming platform and its most popular podcast host.

Guest: Kevin Roose, a technology columnist for The New York Times.

An explanation of sorts and yet - how I lack the perspective of ‘what happens when we don’t let people speak their mind’? What if we let behemoth organizations act as moral guardians? As a Swede, the ‘American moral anxiety’ ruling FB and Apple and the sorts has more than once gotten me a lot more worried than anything Joe Rogan can ‘throw’ at the world.
