The Joe Rogan Experience is no longer the most popular podcast in the world as he's dethroned by sports star

The Joe Rogan Experience is no longer the most popular podcast in the Spotify charts.

Launched in December 2009, The Joe Rogan Experience started out as a means for comedian Joe Rogan and his colleagues to test out material and share stories ahead of shows.

At the time it was a DIY production, with episodes often recorded in hotel rooms and comedy venues.

Since that time however, Rogan has seen the show grow to become one of the most-followed podcasts in existence, despite it now being exclusive to Spotify.

Rogan’s podcast regularly dominates the Spotify charts and often features a series of big-named guests. For instance, earlier this month it was graced by Hollywood actor and WWE Superstar Dwayne Johnson.

However. Rogan has been dethroned at the summit of both the UK and US Spotify charts. In the latter territory Rogan has been pipped in the charts by a pair of prominent athletes - the Kelce brothers.

The American Footballers host the New Heights podcast, which has garnered a recent surge in popularity due to Travis’ Kansas City Chiefs having made it to the Super Bowl.

Moreover, Travis’ relationship with pop star Taylor Swift may have also seen an increase in attention.

In the UK, the Joe Rogan Experience has fallen behind Steven Bartlett’s Diary of a CEO podcast.

This show has taken top spot in the charts since January 22.

In fact, in the UK Rogan has fallen to third in the charts, having also been usurped by The Louis Theroux Podcast.

Of course, Rogan is typically knocked off top spot every few weeks, but tends to claw it back when he drops an episode featuring a big-named guest.

Rogan’s podcast consistently attracts over 11 million listeners per episode, generally making it Spotify’s most popular podcast.

Moreover, The Joe Rogan Experience has achieved over 200 million downloads per month, further emphasising its widespread popularity and influence.
