Spotify has named the Joe Budden Podcast as the most popular podcast of the year. The news comes just a year after the trio of Mal, Rory and Joe signed on to exclusively release their podcast on the streaming platform. Going nearly five years strong, the podcast has welcomed guests such as Nicki Minaj, Chance The Rapper, Reason, Pusha T and many more. They’ve also managed to take their show on the road to Roots Picnic, The Howard Theater and many other storied locations and events. Most recently, they celebrated their 300th episode.
