Activist Spotify staffers considering a 'full-blown strike' if their demands for direct editorial oversight of The JRE aren't met

A new report stated that Spotify employees are extremely bothered that the music streaming platform has not censored "The Joe Rogan Experience" podcast. According to Digital Music News, a self-described source for music industry news and analysis, Spotify employees are so angered about Rogan's free speech that they have threatened a "full-blown strike" if the company doesn't suppress certain "JRE" episodes and topics.

On May 19, Spotify announced that it had reached an agreement with Rogan for a "multi-year exclusive licensing deal" that is reportedly worth more than $100 million, according to The Wall Street Journal. In the deal, Spotify gets the "JRE" full library, which adds up to nearly 1,500 episodes.

"It will remain free, and it will be the exact same show," Rogan said in an announcement on Instagram. "It's just a licensing deal, so Spotify won't have any creative control over the show."

"They want me to just continue doing it the way I'm doing it right now," he continued. "I'm excited to have the support of the largest audio platform in the world and I hope you folks are there when we make the switch!"
