Some employees have expressed concerns about "The Joe Rogan Experience" ever since Spotify bought the show in 2020, The WSJ reported.
It's unclear whether Spotify's removal of episodes is linked to Rogan's COVID-19 misinformation controversy, as the episodes pre-date the pandemic.
"I think there are dishonest bad actors in the world and identifying those is so much more important to me," Stewart said on his podcast.
Spotify CEO Daniel Ek told employees that "The Joe Rogan Experience" helped the brand "find leverage" over competitors, per The Verge.
"We're trying to balance creative expression with the safety of our users," said Spotify CEO, Daniel Ek.
David Crosby, Stephen Stills, and Graham Nash are the latest musicians to pull music from Spotify following a similar request from Joni Mitchell.
Spotify's support of Rogan "has felt like a slap in the face," say the makers of the "Science Vs" podcast, which won an award for pandemic reporting.
The misinformation elevated on Joe Rogan's podcast raised a question: should Spotify be tasked with moderating content like other internet platforms?
"This new effort to combat misinformation will roll out to countries around the world in the coming days," said Spotify's CEO.
Rogan said Sunday he's a Neil Young fan and had "no hard feelings" towards the musician, who asked for his music to be removed from Spotify.
We know we have a critical role to play in supporting creator expression while balancing it with the safety of our users," Spotify CEO Daniel Ek said.
Apple Music, Amazon Music, and SiriusXM wasted no time capitalizing on Neil Young's feud with Spotify over the controversial Joe Rogan podcast.
The streaming site has attracted anger from many of its own customers, who used the #deletespotify hashtag to state their intentions.
A spokesperson said the pair raised concerns with Spotify to ensure changes to its platform are made to help address "this public health crisis."
"They can have [Joe] Rogan or Young. Not both," Young wrote on Monday. By Wednesday most of his music had been pulled from the platform.
Spotify's comms head said the company applies its policies "objectively" and Rogan's podcast "didn't meet the threshold for removal," The Verge reported.
Young pulled his music from the streaming platform after it declined to remove Joe Rogan, who has been accused of spreading COVID-19 misinformation.
The musician previously wrote in a now-deleted open letter that Spotify could "have Rogan or Young. Not both."
The controversial podcast host said calling people Black or white is "strange" to him "because there's such a spectrum of shades of people."
Earlier this month, 270 health professionals called on Spotify to mitigate the spread of misinformation after an episode of Joe Rogan's podcast.

Ivermectin is a horse dewormer that the CDC issued an advisory against using the drug to treat COVID-19. It can be toxic to humans in large doses.
Podcast host Joe Rogan said "the problem with applauding vaccine passports" is that politicians "are not going to give that power up."
