Yup...It's easy to be a hypocrite when you are the one being offered $100 million. Very easy.
One of the shows that didn't move to Spotify was Stephen Molyneux. If you listen to that one, at the last 1/3rd of the show Molyneux brings up Robin Williams' suicide and how it may have been exacerbated by paying alimony and child support. This made Rogan very angry, as apparently Rogan and Williams were besties forever and how dare anyone outside of comedy have an opinion about comedy and comedians.
Molyneux, who is not my favorite person, was very respectful and deferred to Joe as Joe railed him.
Molyneux was never invited back.
If you were Joe Rogan, and Spotify offered you $100 million, and as part of that deal you couldn't bring over your Molyneux episode with a few others...it's pretty obvious what most people are going to choose.
$100 million... Life is hard. Seeing a few more commas and zeros in your bank account makes life a lot easier.
