Joe Rogan has solidified himself over the years with his respected "The Joe Rogan Experience Podcast" that has grown each year. He is controversial at times with some opinions he expresses and guests that are not popular among many. Even then, he still brings civil discussion and brings together anyone from a conservative, liberal, and neutral standpoint.

One of my favorite pastimes, when I am relaxing, is watching various types of videos on YouTube from sports and funny videos from YouTubers I like, to anything that interests me in general.

I have recently gotten invested in the "The Joe Rogan Experience" podcast which has gained a solid fan base over the years. I mostly watch clips from episodes that have aired on YouTube but have also started to listen to more full episodes especially with his recent move to Spotify this month.

Joe Rogan’s style of civil discourse and interviewing is much more authentic and a far cry from the type of dialogue we see from media outlets today.

This past week, Rogan enlightened controversy when he stated during an episode that "left-wing" people were setting wildfires in Oregon which turned out to be a false news source. Rogan apologized after some outrage on social media, but even before this incident, Rogan has had many incidents of disagreements among liberals and even conservatives with certain viewpoints he has said in the past.

A lot of the criticism of Rogan can be valid, but what he has been able to achieve with his podcast is still a positive more people should notice and I believe his platform is something more American viewers should appreciate.

The thing about "The Joe Rogan Experience" is that it's not just a podcast talking about politics but it talks about various interesting topics. My favorite parts from watching his podcasts chatting with guests about topics from conspiracy theories, political issues, history topics, and even scientific-related stuff.

I know people think negatively about conspiracy theory debates and bringing controversial guests, but Rogan really uses his interviews as a way of learning about people's own opinions about all these mysterious conspiracies like the existence of aliens, dark government secrets, and even historic or scientific discussions that are also pleasant to listen to.

Another thing the podcast does is bring in many interesting guests like journalists, political commentators, and experts in many fields to discuss any current event that currently garners the most attention in the news. Rogan has also invited many prominent figures and celebrities from Mike Tyson,  former presidential candidates Bernie Sanders and Andrew Yang, Oliver Stone, and has even interviewed infamous CIA whistleblower Eric Snowden a couple of times already.

Personally,  my most favorite episode I have watched was an interview with this reputable narcotics journalist Ioan Grillo who specialized deeply in the cartel situation in Mexico. The whole video just locked you in and picked apart the deep reality about the situation in Mexico. Episodes like from Grillo were just one of many episodes that the podcast provides that you don't see in many other media platforms.

Joe Rogan's reputation seems mixed with many detractors and supporters, but his podcast should serve as a positive example as a way for people to learn knowledge from politics to anything that is popular to talk about in society.

Is a podcast still a podcast when you can only get it from one company?
