Joe Rogan fans have been left disappointed after the outspoken comedian's podcast back catalog was noticeably missing controversial episodes featuring the likes of InfoWars host Alex Jones and comedian Chris D'Elia, who has been accused of sexual misconduct.
The Joe Rogan Experience arrived on the music streaming service Tuesday, potentially taking listeners from the likes of Apple and Google where previous episodes are available.
However, social media users and even past guests whose episodes were missing suggested Spotify had censored the clips and wondered whether Rogan's $100million deal announced in May meant his non-politically correct style would change.
'If they left these podcast out just think about how many guest he can't have on without spotify's approval, so much for free speech Joe,' one fan wrote.

Others said Rogan was 'dead to me' if he didn't address the issue and claimed he had 'sold out.'
Rogan had previously reassured fans that the show will be exactly the same and it was just a licensing deal, 'so Spotify won't have any creative control over the show.'

'When can we expect to see the full library of @joerogan's JRE Podcast on your platform? Some eps are missing,' one fan tweeted Spotify just minutes after the September 1 switchover began.
Spotify's customer care account managers seemed to believe it was down to a user glitch with one social media manager replying, 'Sorry for the confusion! Could you DM us your account's email address? We'll take a look backstage.'
Another replied: 'Can you tell us more about what's happening exactly? We'll help out.'
