    Or he simply doesn't comment on his beliefs that the Moon Landing was faked and that he weirdly flip-flopped on several issues. If you really have a hard-on for Rogan and all that fine, but there are smarter and more worthwhile people out there not capitalizing in being a marginal comedian and largely uneducated social commentator. And they didn't have Spotify shove bars of gold up their asses either..

      For years he would rail against anyone getting married and having kids as the biggest fucking losers in the world. He was in his late 30s at this point. A few years later he's married with kids and going to lawyers over a photoshop Flappo did of his wife surrounded by dicks.

      I'll still listen to him if he has a good guest on because he is Zelig, as I said he just becomes a fanboy of whatever is in front of him so if it's a real scientist or smart interesting person it will be a good watch just don't expect any great chat from Joe. The problem is that he doesn't know enough to know who not to give a 3 hour platform to and as more crazies came on, the legitimate guests are more wary and less frequent.

      Remember when you were young before the internet you would get those crazy guys who would stand on a soap box in the town square with a megaphone shouting about some shit like the apocalypse or Jesus or whatever. Joe must have been that one guy that would stand there in front of him all afternoon half stoned with his mouth open saying wow man.

      That was all good until by some freak of technology, timing and chance Joe got millions of guys to stand beside him...

        I think that's why he fell out with Stern, the whole women and relationships thing. Howard Stern commented that Joe seem to have a misogynist streak in him and he seemed abusive or at least rude to any women he worked with or whenever they went to a bar or strip club and they never spoke again although Stern says he likes Rogan and wishes they were still friends. IDK I was watching some stuff with comedian Anthony Jeselnik who seems like a very un-Rogan type of guy. Rogan is a decent interviewer of sorts with guys around his level, other than that he's lost on any wider geopolitical topics...

          Rogan used to be an entertaining listen at times. And he had Bernie Sanders on his show for 3 hours, which was 2 hours & 55 minutes more than any corporate media outlet ever gave him. He had DLR on for 3 hours.... and you have to credit anybody who can keep a talk show going for that long with Dave, given his ADHD/scatterbrained way of doing "radio".

          Rogan clearly lost his mind some time during the Cheeto/pandemic years. He wasn't the only one to do so, but he and Jimmy Dore were probably the ones who fell the furthest down the rabbit hole and never came back. Blame it on the horse paste ivermectin, maybe?

            Funny you should say that. When he first started a kind of video podcast way back, maybe 2010 which was that guy Redban videoing him out and about, he posted a video of him arguing with a girl in an outside bar area. I forget the details of the argument and he may even have been in the right but it was his aggression really put me off. You had him on his tiptoes face right in hers really fucking aggressively berating her on and on. If he was a teenager you would think what a little asshole but when you see a guy pushing 40 acting like that and proudly posting the video?

              This is a perfect piss take on the absolute nothingness of the Joe Rogan Show.

                  He might be shifting his focus to a more right leaning audience because it’s more lucrative. Always follow the money. Conservatives are the new rebels. Lefties are mainstream now and boring.

                    For a multi-million dollar stoner Rogan's shitcast is tedious pothead late night dorm room talk. Rogan has no formal education, is a failed "observational" comic, terrible actor, and fuck awful MMA commentator but a god damn genius at asking stupid questions (yes, people, there are stupid questions) and pontificating on the stupid answers. That's the secret of life, I guess. Delve into the rabbit hole of conspiratorial trash for your audience of largely uneducated white males who are so desperate for someone, anyone to validate their idiocy and rake in millions while dumbing down America to the point of collective fascism.

                      Podcasting is a competitive game of grifting. In short, it’s entertainment. People either want to be sold doom and gloom or they want to be sold hope. Oh and be sure to buy a pillow to keep you comfortable during the civil unrest while you wait for the white hats Q talks about to bring in the Quantum financial system and everyone gets free access to a med bed.

                        Or most people think he's dumb...

                        And shifting right (which in reality he always has been right and a conspiracist) isn't so much more lucrative, it's just more of a market half-talents and halfwits can pander too since they often feel disenfranchised from the "main stream media"...

                          Joe is a more modern version of Art Bell. Coast to Coast AM was doing those type of shows before Joe was ever known. It’s entertainment. Who’s dumb are the people who think it’s more than that.

                            Smoking pot while doing a show isn’t exactly right wing. Joe ain’t exactly the new Rush Limbaugh.

                              I think there’s a big audience in the middle who don’t give a fuck whether something is left or right.

                                Joe can be getting loaded and talking dirty one day and have someone sharing their come to Jesus moment the next.
