Science Podcaster Wendy Zukerman is the latest content producer to rebel against Joe Rogan’s massive podcast. Zuckerman is a journalist that hosts and produces podcast titled “Science VS” and is a part of the Gimlet media network.
Zuckerman had posted the following letter online after she sent it to Spotify CEO Daniel Ek.
“Until Spotify implements stronger methods to prevent the spread of misinformation on the platform, we will no longer be making new Science Vs episodes, except those intended to contradict misinformation being spread on Spotify,” Zukerman wrote in an email to Ek

Zukerman’s podcast was once popular having reached Apple’s Science podcast top list at number 8. The podcast is a part of larger network – Gimlet media. Gimlet was acquired by Spotify in 2020 for $100 Million. Gimlet has yet to release the statement on Zukerman going rogue.
Science vs is currently the third most popular podcast in the Educational category – with Rogan’s podcast being overall most popular podcast in the US.
