the only reason anyone listens to Joe Rogan's podcast is because he was a famous comedian who made idiots eat raw horse uteruses on reality TV
Naw, really, this is a phenomenon that's happening. I think he gets like 30M downloads per month these days. (Most downloads are audio, the YouTube numbers are a fraction of it)

Me, I despised FF, and I think Rogan is just an above-average standup.

But his thinky podcasts are brilliant: just a long conversation between a curious person and a serious thinker. Rogan is the conduit in this setting, and he does a fine job of it. He's bringing these people to the rest of us, and letting their ideas go out there.


Edited to revise number of downloads, and per month not per ep
