    Joe Rogan is a moron

    If you get your medical advice from Joe Rogan, you are a moron
    Sorry... felt the need to edit. 
    Nailed it. How a stand up comedian and podcaster becomes an authority on anything except bad jokes and filling time with talk about whatever drifts into his mind is beyond me. 
    People listening to celebrities isn't new. hell, how many people listen to Ed's ramblings about politics? and how many of those people agree with Ed because he's Ed?

    Rogan seems to have been able to cross the line between just 'regular dumb celebrity' because he does host a lot of intellectuals on his show, and he seems to have a good grasp on many of the subjects they talk about, so I think that gives him credence to his viewers that if he can hold his own with an intellectual, then maybe he does know what he's talking about with public health. 

    of course, i think that just shows he's got a really good producer who knows how to research and prepare rogan for each guest. But I could see how it could be convincing to an average stoner. 

    when called out though he claims "I'm just an idiot dumb comedian. you shouldnt listen to me"
    yeah, I know, that's the part that bothers me.

    The sad thing is that Rogan is actually a pretty good interviewer. He just rarely has anyone on that I'm interested in. His interviews with Josh Homme and James Hetfield were great. The Bernie Sanders one was good too. But I don't give a crap about MMA or much else of what he brings to the table.

    But has he ever claimed to be an authority on anything?  I listen to his podcast occasionally depending on the guests and I definitely don't agree with his stance on vaccines but it's crazy how people get all up in arms about things he says on his own podcast!  The dude gives his opinions on his own show and people lose their minds.  It's wild.

    I should watch the James Hetfield one. I watched the Homme one and I found it really uncomfortable to watch. I just didn't identify with Josh's sense of humour. It was like has a super nervous kid on a first date.

    no, he hasn't, but it's hard to know where to draw the line, isn't? I mean, he knows how many people are listening/watching. at what point does societal responsibility to know the facts kick in? literally millions of people listen to him. he claims he's just a dumbass in his basement riffing with friends and people that interest him, but at some point, shouldn't he acknowledge his own influence? maybe even a disclaimer at the beginning of each show:

    "look, I have opinions, but I'm not a doctor or any kind of expert on anything but MMA. and I'm probably stoned. this is for entertainment purposes only".

    Hetfield gets into a lot of interesting things. Like the Napster thing, and how much things have changed in California over the years (not for the better in his opinion)

    Questioning how the world - or life - works is not tantamount to stupidity.

    To me, stupidity is not questioning anything. Seems fruitless.

    fast food coffee needs a disclaimer that its hot.

    prep h needs a warning label to not take orally

    plug in electrical device (hair dryers and the like) have a warning to not use in the tub


    Am very curious to know just how many times he's used the now overused excuse of "I'm just a dumb comedian" or " I'm just a stupid monkey" etc.. in order to walk back some statement on the podcast.

    why dont chu pull that up Jamie...

    Rogan has had some amazing interviews on there and isn't for just idiots.  He's had Andrew Yang, Neil DeGrasse Tyson and Elon Musk to name a few.  I really did like these interviews.

    He is also a proponent of HGH, TRT and IV Hydration therapy also stem cell research.

    I haven’t seen him address “controversies” but once or twice. Those are
    brought about by others. 

    I get that some detest him; I’m not looking to change anyone’s mind. The opinions of others has never meant less to me (not directed toward you, personally; rather, to those who’ve made up their minds based solely on headlines or uninformed declarations).

    it's interesting you say that, since I'm on twitter, and whenever he's trending, I see loads of people commenting "who's joe rogan? the news radio guy? he's still around?". I don't know how someone can be simultaneously super famous and yet unknown, especially people who are actively online.

    i'd definitely agree with that. however, I saw him in vegas, and we really enjoyed that. But all of the stuff I've seen on netflix hasn't garnered even so much as a snicker.
