In the realm of podcasts, a seismic shift has occurred. A TikTok celebrity dethroned Joe Rogan from the #1 place on Spotify’s podcast rankings.
The Joe Rogan Experience ascended to unparalleled heights, cementing its status as the world’s most popular podcast. This meteoric rise was propelled by a monumental $100 million collaboration with Spotify.
Through this partnership, Rogan managed to secure interviews with some of the biggest names in the celebrity stratosphere. Icons like Elon Musk and Kanye West graced his platform, alongside a constellation of UFC luminaries.
Notably, former heavyweight UFC champion Francis Ngannou is set to face Tyson Fury in the upcoming month. He recently appeared on the podcast as well.
However, recent revelations have shed light on a curious phenomenon. It appears that a significant portion of women think it’s a red flag if their partner follows the JRE podcast.
According to a comprehensive study conducted by Change Research encompassing over a thousand respondents aged 18-34, a staggering 55% deemed it a cause for concern if their partner tuned into The Joe Rogan Experience. Intriguingly, only 35% of men echoed this sentiment regarding their female counterparts.
In an unexpected turn of events, the TikTok sensation Alix Earle has emerged as the new frontrunner on Spotify’s podcasting charts. ‘Hot Mess with Alix Earle’ started on September 21, and swiftly overtook Rogan’s podcast. It secured its position as the No.1 podcast on the platform.
Additionally, The Joe Rogan Experience has slipped to third place. It now follows behind The Diary of A CEO Podcast.
In conclusion, the landscape of podcasting dominance is in a state of flux. New contenders are rising and established podcasts facing unanticipated challenges. As the industry continues to evolve, it remains to be seen who will emerge as the ultimate victor.
Rogan recently watch Israel Adesanya’s surprising loss to Sean Strickland at UFC 293 live. Rogan said after seeing the incident: “I’m stunned. I think this is the most stunned I’ve ever been, surprised at a performance.”
