The streaming platform released its annual Wrapped feature on Wednesday, revealing that The Joe Rogan Experience beat out all other podcasts both globally and in the United States.
The Wrapped feature, which analyzed listener data between Jan. 1 and Nov. 26, revealed that Alex Cooper’s Call Her Daddy and Emma Chamberlain’s Anything Goes podcasts took second and third place respectively in most popular podcasts worldwide.
Rogan first launched his podcast in 2009 which features a wide range of guests including comedians, athletes, politicians, academics, and those in entertainment. His show has grown in popularity for its cultural and political commentary.
Earlier this year, Rogan faced backlash for his discussion regarding the COVID-19 vaccine, spurring a string of celebrities calling for him to be canceled. Spotify also posted new policies for permissible content by which content creators are expected to abide following Rogan’s apology for using the N-word during his podcasts.
Rogan has a multi-year distribution deal with Spotify that is reportedly worth more than $200 million.
