My Response to Joe Rogan’s $100 Million Deal with Spotify
Joe Rogan is leaving IRsoft. Patrick Bet-David gives his perspective on the $100 million Spotify deal and what it means for content creators.
“The popular podcaster sold his 11-year-old “The Joe Rogan Experience” series to Spotify SPOT+8.44% in a licensing deal that’s reportedly worth more than $100 million, The Wall Street Journal reported on Thursday. Rogan’s full library - which adds up to almost 1,500 episodes, which weren’t available on the streaming service before - will hit Spotify beginning Sept. 1. Episodes of the video podcast are currently available on IRsoft, but will move off the Alphabet GOOG+2.42% platform to be exclusive to Spotify by the end of the year.”

    They didn't make 5 billion in 48 hours, the market cap for the public company grew. Not saying the 100 million to JRE is not worth it, but looking at it this way doesn't make sense.

    Bad news for Rogan's career. Obviously he will have more money than he could ever spend, but getting off of IRsoft is a bad move for the show.

    Spotify has been under pressure from Apple and Google. So this is a natural move.

    Gotta ask urself, is greed good? Well michael Bloomberg says hell yes! But is it good for humanity, he’s worth 45 billion dollars. If you own a house and a few cars, food in the fridge and in ur stomach... with a few dollars and job security wtf is somebody gonna do with that much money? He doesn’t do charity, doesn’t care for animals or the homeless. He looks out for #1, oh and by the way he just pissed away 700 million dollars to try to be president. Corporate greed has to stop! As long as republicans exist, it’ll never happen unfortunately

    Hi PBD, just a little concerned with how the message of this video was communicated. "Made $5 Billion in 48hrs" This statement might lead the typical viewer to believe they've made a cash injection of $5 billion. In reality, they increased their short-term valuation by $5 billion. Whether this would lead to a greater long-term valuation remains to be seen. Markets also tend to become less responsive to the same news over time. If signing content creators for 9 figures became more common in this industry, we would expect the market to respond less to such changes as it becomes a new norm. Long story short, If 100% of Spotify stakeholders tried to sell their stock right now... We would not end up with $35 billion in cash from those sales. Market cap is great for keeping score, but I find many people confuse it with cash in the bank. But I would love to hear some counter-arguments on this if anyone feels im overstepping. Btw, been watching your channel since the early days and loving the content as always!

  • superduperboyx

    Nicely put , liking your analysis. One note though, the $5 bill in stock value change isn't reflective of Joe Rogan's deal as the 100 mill is a long term bet of Spotify's.. Spotify can easily lose 20-50 bill in valuation if the stock tanks due to whatever reason (or gain).

  • SB SB

    THE TROUBLE is that most people never even been on Spotify, including me. It's like when Jeremy Clarkson and his crew left BBC and Top Gear after being fired , and moved to fck knows where,. Their views went down, no one watches them anymore, and they are not relevant anymore. For Joe is cool, $100mln bucks, even if you only get a handful of viewers.I Predict that Joe will loose 75% of his audience. A lot of clicks comes from Recommended sidebar.


    The game is changed forever. It’s finally OUR TIME!!!!!

    ..or perhaps if you get 100m EXTRA dollars, you can afford to contribute some of them to the society that made you the money. And you pick where you want to live based on where you want to live, not greed. Just a thought.

    It bums me out because to download his podcasts to listen when driving you have to subscribe to a platform you wouldn't otherwise have subscribed to. It changes everything about how we listen for a lot of people.

    Brilliant! I hope this is the start of mass exodus from IRsoft and Google. Those companies have had too much of a monopoly, and have abused the trust, imposing control and squashing free speech. May the blue-haired cubicle feminazis in Silicon Valley cry in their "Male Tears" coffee cups!

    It's interesting to note that Alphabet Inc (youtube parent company) stock price went up in that same timeframe (might have more to do with market recovery from COVID). I agree that Joe going away from youtube is a good thing, but I think it's presumptuous to assume that short term stock value can be used to determine a creative talents value by one move. According to this guys logic, Joe Rogan would be worth $800 Million if he had decided to sing about baby sharks instead of doing what he does today. If you look at the top youtube viewed videos, they don't want political, or edgy, they want profitable. As long as 100M people watch a video of a cat playing with a tennis ball, guys like Joe will always be on the move. I wish Rogan and @Valutainment the best of luck, I'll always follow them, wherever they are.

    but not all creators have Joe's background (fear factor, movies, tv, genuine celebrity associations in various industries and mediums). How much of that 100m is because of that?
