Joe Rogan doesn’t actually upload full podcast episodes to YouTube anymore due to his deal with Spotify.
The controversial episode was posted by a fan before being deleted and may have been taken down due to copyright issues.
The podcast episode was originally posted on New Year’s Eve and shows Rogan speaking to US-based virologist Dr Robert Malone.
Dr Malone has been banned from Twitter.
He was involved in creating the mRNA technology that helped create the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines.
The virologist spoke on ‘The Joe Rogan Experience’ podcast for around three hours and made a number of controversial comments.
He compared the modern-day US with Nazi Germany because he thinks the country is developing a “mass formation psychosis”.
This is something that is thought to have happened in Germany in the 1920s and 1930s before Adolf Hitler rose to power.
He said on the podcast: “It was from, basically, European intellectual inquiry into what the heck happened in Germany in the 20s and 30s.
“Very intelligent, highly educated population and they went barking mad. And how did that happen? The answer is mass formation psychosis.
“When you have a society that has become decoupled from each other and has free-floating anxiety, in a sense that things don’t make sense.
“We can’t understand it. And then their attention gets focused by a leader or series of events on one small point, just like hypnosis. They literally become hypnotized and can be led anywhere.”
Dr Malone has made a number of anti-vax comments and called government-imposed vaccine mandates “illegal”.
The day before he was suspended from Twitter he tweeted: “Pfizer 6 month data which shows that Pfizer’s Covid-19 inoculations cause more illness than they prevent. Plus, an overview of the Pfizer trial flaws in both design and execution.”
The removal of the episode has caused some outrage and censorship conspiracies online.
One person tweeted: “It has been removed from YouTube, Twitter and Facebook. That’s censorship. Thankfully, people are going to Spotify where it’s still available and the censorship has made the podcast more popular.”
However, there are people hitting back at the outrage.
One person tweeted: “Twitter and YouTube are not the government. It’s not censorship.
“If you believe not being able to use a private company’s services is censorship, I’d advise you to stop using them voluntarily.”
Another said: “Isn’t it still available on its original site, Spotify? I know Youtube and Twitter took down the links but if you pay the premium, it’s available on Spotify, no? Not sure why the outrage?”
