Are you serious? Whining about muh Palestinian kids is liberal talking point that is irrelevant to questioning the power of Israel and how it has acted as an enemy against the US consistently.
So you have conspiracy theorists on, yet you never have on anybody would talks about any serious Israeli conspiracies? Nothing strange at all.

Exactly the same thing that happened to "The Last Podcast on the Left". Extremely "punk/anti-establishment" views. Or at least they liked to style themselves like that.
Which is pretty easy when you do a Weird/Paranormal/True Crime podcast from a broom cupboard. Something that got harder when they started making like 50k from patreon.
And even that wasn't enough when spotify came knocking. Their cult-like fanbase acts like it was the best thing ever happening to the podcast. Better not criticise them on their subreddit if you don't want to be called all the buzzwords. But rumors say they had a extreme break in listeners. If a shitty podcast like that get's a "fuck-you-money" offer like that. Imagine what Rogan will make with this move.

It's completely understandable from a business perspective. But extremely weird from an ideological one.

I don't think ideology can even come into the discussion at this point. The best plan for someone in Joe's position is to simply partner with a platform - ANY platform - that will clearly state what their requirements are and allow them to be agreed to via a legal contract. The days of major content creators operating on the whims of whatever Youtube decides is acceptable at that particular second are over. That's the point where we're at now, you can't be concerned with granular concerns such as losing 10%, 20% or even 50% of your viewerbase or if Spotify has better or worse business practices, because with Youtube it's always a possibility that you'll be algorithmed into oblivion if not outright deleted from their platform because you called the wrong person a faggot or had the wrong guest on your show.

Youtube, TO THIS DAY, is still using the same boilerplate "terms & conditions" for creators that are pulling in millions of dollars as they are for someone who streams to 5 people to and gets 2 superchats a week (The exceptions are a few creators and publishers who secured the bag from the Youtube RED trainwreck.) The whole system is just untenable as a revenue stream for someone like Joe Rogan who is running a legitimate production company at this point.

It makes sense Joe changed over to Spotify. Personally, the whole format change is reasonable on Joes part. YouTube is notoriously awful for the way it blasts people in the shadow zone for no apparent reason. Jones set that precedent, of course though Joe has always stumbled around the whole "shadow banning" phenomenon. Rogan is a good interviewer, personally though I haven't really watched a lot of his podcasts in the last couple of years because there was a bit of a tone change from his early on stuff.

Rogan also used to have more interesting guests, he introduced me to guys like Randal Carlson, Gram Hancock, Sir Roger Penrose, and the list goes on. Rogan was the only one to seemed to be able to make the whole Tom Green and Anthony Cumia show in your house approach work. Problem though is that he is going to obviously lose a sizable chunk of his viewership, but a 100 million dollar contract is fucking ridiculous to turn down, practically on par with Howard Stern like contracts in the terrestrial radio days.
