Joe Rogan is arguably the world's most popular podcaster.

However, he landed himself in hot water for suggesting, in a recent episode of his podcast The Joe Rogan Experience, that 21-year-olds shouldn't get vaccinated.

Spotify reviewed the episode but left it live because Rogan's comments were not deemed to be outwardly anti-vaccine.

In a statement, Spotify said it "prohibits content on the platform which promotes dangerous false, deceptive, or misleading content about COVID-19 that may cause offline harm and/or pose a direct threat to public health. When content that violates this standard is identified it is removed from the platform."

Alison Healy and Lorcan Nyhan joined us for The Week Trending to discuss this and some of the other stories making headlines this week.
