The podcast debuted in 2009, and has become one of the most successful in the world. According to the editors of the Wall Street Journal, after reaching a deal with Spotify, worth $ 100 million (£ 80 million), The JRE will debut on Spotify on September 1.

Additionally, all podcast content, including Rogan's YouTube video podcasts, will become exclusive to the streaming platform by the end of the year.

Rogan will maintain full creative control over the podcast, which will remain free, and confirmed during a live webcast from his Instagram account, the highlights will remain on YouTube.


"It will be exactly the same show. I will not be a Spotify employee, we will work with the same team doing exactly the same show … nothing else will change," he insisted. "We are very excited to start this new chapter of the JRE and hope it will be there when we cross."
