Newsweek has reached out to Spotify for comment.

Rogan signed am exclusive $100 million licensing deal with Spotify back in May. The podcast will still be available on YouTube until it becomes exclusive to Spotify at a later date.

Speaking about his move to Spotify after the announcement, Rogan said via Instagram that his podcast will be the "exact same show."

"It will remain FREE, and it will be the exact same show," he wrote. "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."
