Rogan

President

In the wake of signing a $100 million Spotify deal in 2020, Rogan and his podcast “The Joe Rogan Experience” became a favorite target of critics for his attacks on “woke” culture and vaccine passports, and his controversial guests including conspiracy-loving radio host Alex Jones. He inspired internal protests by Spotify employees, who alleged that the podcast was transphobic. To top that off, he ignited a fresh firestorm in September when he admitted that he had contracted COVID-19 and was treating it with ivermectin, a drug meant for parasitic infections, not viruses. And none of that seemed to harm the popularity of his show. Rogan, who has worked as a sitcom actor (“NewsRadio,” 1995-99) and reality-series host (“Fear Factor,” 2001-06, 2011-12), continues to perform stand-up and do color commentary for UFC matches.
