The Joe Rogan Experience, one of the most popular podcasts in the world, will soon become a Spotify exclusive. Full audio and video episodes will be available to stream on the platform starting September 1. Spotify reportedly dropped $100 million on the deal.

Spotify made the announcement yesterday, stating that all of the show’s content — including Rogan’s video podcasts, which are currently available on YouTube — will become exclusive to the platform by the end of the year. Spotify users will be able to access the episodes for free.

While Spotify did not disclose how much it spent on the deal, a source told the Wall Street Journal that it was reportedly worth $100 million. Last year, Rogan claimed his show reached about 190 million downloads a month.

Rogan’s YouTube channel will remain live, but it won’t contain full episodes, so fans will have to head to Spotify to listen. Watch the announcement below.
