Joe Rogan is promising to "balance things out" on his podcast as artists remove their music from Spotify in response to COVID-19 misinformation on the show.

Rogan in an Instagram video addressed the controversy after Neil Young and Joni Mitchell moved to pull their music from Spotify due to misinformation spread on podcasts like The Joe Rogan Experience. The comedian and podcast host objected to "the term misinformation" and defended interviewing guests who "have an opinion that's different from the mainstream narrative," including a doctor who was banned from Twitter for COVID-19 misinformation.
