Over 200 doctors have called on Spotify to allow Rogan’s podcast series to spread misinformation about Covid-19
A group of over 200 doctors and healthcare workers wrote an open letter to Spotify after a controversial episode of The Joe Rogan Experience podcast with guest Dr. Robert Malone had been published. Doctors have expressed disappointment with Spotify for allowing such misinformation to spread.
The open letter said: “The episode has been criticized for promoting baseless conspiracy theories and the JRE has a worrying history of spreading misinformation, particularly regarding the COVID-19 pandemic. By allowing the dissemination of false and socially harmful claims, Spotify enables hosted media to damage public trust in scientific research and cast doubt on the credibility of data-backed guidelines offered by healthcare professionals.” Healthcare professionals have Asked Spotify to set a clear policy to mitigate misinformation on the platform Malone, who was a guest on the episode, is known for promoting misinformation about COVID-19 and has also been suspended from Twitter for the same reason Rogan’s hosted podcast was launched in 2009 and has received millions of views per episode Series topics include live streaming of MMA fights, politics and discussions on various topics.
Who is Joe Rogan’s wife Jessica Ditzel?

Ditzel is a former model who was signed to M Model Management and worked for Korean brand Wholesome. She holds a bachelor’s degree from California State University. Ditzel and Rogan met while she was a waitress in Los Angeles. They dated for eight years and married in 2009 after the birth of their first child.
In an interview with the Palm Beach Post, Rogan said, “I always describe having a baby as making mushrooms because if you’ve never done it before I can’t quite describe it to you… There aren’t any.” That way I could tell you how much you would love your child.” When asked why he married Ditzel after years of calling marriage a useless concept, Rogan said, “I had to. Didn’t really have to, but you know, she had a baby. (It’s) like, ‘God, all right, I’m going to sign some stupid legal contract.’ What she did was much more of a commitment.”
Ditzel was formerly engaged to Kevin Conner, lead singer of R&B group H-Town. Conner died in a car accident in 2003. He is the father of Ditzel’s 24-year-old daughter Kayja Rose, an R&B singer. After marrying Ditzel, Rogan legally adopted Rose. The couple also have two children named Lola and Rosey. They have a dog, Marshall Mae Rogan, who has his own Instagram account with 786,000 followers.
Ditzel and Rogan have been married for twelve years, but have a signed prenuptial agreement just in case. In a conversation with Rolling Stone, Rogan said, “A prenup? Of course. I’m ridiculous and stupid, but I’m not stupid.”
