The company tweeted the offer for Rogan to move his podcast, “The Joe Rogan Experience,” to its platform, adding that the offer was “totally legit.”

The move comes after singer Neil Young first threatened to pull, then did pull, his music from Spotify, claiming he did not want to be part of a site that allowed Rogan to talk about what Young called unproven COVID-19 treatments.

His former bandmates, David Crosby, Stephen Stills and Graham Nash, along with other artists, have also pulled their music from the hosting website.

Rogan is believed to have signed a $100 million contract with Spotify.

Rumble describes itself as being “for people with something to say and something to share, who believe in authentic expression, and want to control the value of their own creations. We create technologies that are immune to cancel culture.”

“Because everyone benefits when we have access to more ideas, diverse opinions, and dialogue. Join us. We are on a mission to protect a free and open internet,” the website reads.

“Get out of that place before it eats up your soul,” Young told employees at Spotify in a message shared on his official website.
