If you’re like me, the name Joe Rogan is synonymous with the reality TV show, Fear Factor. And that’s it. But if you dig a bit deeper, you’ll find out that there’s a lot more to Joe Rogan than simply commentating on people eating bugs and jumping off buildings. He is a famous American stand-up comedian and very involved in mixed martial arts (MMA) – in fact, he has a black belt in jiu-jitsu. You also don’t have to dig very deep to find his podcast, The Joe Rogan Experience, that’s been running since 2009. So what is The Joe Rogan Experience and why do people either love it or hate it?
The Joe Rogan Experience
The Joe Rogan Experience is a free audio and video podcast hosted by Joe Rogan, of course. The podcast was launched in December 2009 and the average length of each podcast varies from 1 to 4 hours. With more than 1000 episodes to date, The Joe Rogan Experience is one of the world’s most popular podcasts. There’s an average of 4 podcasts a week available, with approximately 3 million downloads per podcast.
What makes the podcast interesting to watch? For starters, there is a host of familiar faces and celebrities, as well as some of Joe’s stand-up comedian buddies. Joe Rogan is a big supporter of the legalization of cannabis, and he also supports the use of drugs like LSD, mushrooms and DMT. It will come as no surprise then to watch a few podcasts where Joe, and sometimes his guest, is as high as a kite. The conversations can become quite interesting, sometimes funny, as Joe is not scared of tackling any topic from politics to chatting to Mike Tyson about his drug abuse.

There has been a lot of criticism about The Joe Rogan Experience, with many saying that Joe is talking too much about drugs, swears too much and that the show can become a bit childish. Be that as it may, the podcast has been running for 9 years and is still gaining a lot of followers, so he must be doing something right.
