Rogan faced a great deal of backlash for his remarks regarding covid-19. Before the controversies blew up, Rogan was apparently being approached by various people who wanted to be a part of his podcast show.

In an episode of the FLAGRANT podcast show, Rogan said that he would just avoid such figures that are in powerful positions by simply ghosting them. He continued, “before like a lot of the controversy and the Spotify stuff, they were looking at the podcast as a way for people to get on there and have a chance to shape the narrative……. I think they would look at it as like a unique way to manipulate public information or public, uh concepts.”
