I like joe Rogan, he seems genuine and interested in all sorts of things.
However, its often hard to listen to the show.
Many guests are seriously warped individuals, especially his closer friends.
for instance, I wasn't sure if Duncan Trussel was kind of an act, similar to Borat.
He definitely nailed the granola-smoking, spirituality-signaling, buzzword-remixing, hippiehipster megamoron.
But it wasn't until i checked out HIS podcast that it dawned on me-
"Unholy shit, he IS trying to be some kind of wise, empathical drugnerd and he's bloody stupid!"
Similarly, Bryan Callen just seems to be a slicker, flippant version of Rogan.
Also, Rogan himself should really pick up some history books and, you know, actually learn some stuff.
I mean he does seems interested?
It appears like everytime he just listened to a podcast, his mind spilleth over and he HAS to share his mental digestion process of the newlearnt Weltanschauung with his fans.
That is ok, but you could learn even more by reading basic run-of-the-mill history books!
No need to wait for Dan Carlin to present you his version on a particular topic.
Same with other sciences or grand social debates.
If he has cool guests and lets them talk, the show can be really nice.
