Like it or not, part of the charm of Rogan is he will speak to anyone with any perspective. Another part of his charm is the podcast is in a conversation format where more often than not he'll be melted which doesn't lend itself well to serious analysis.

Will be interesting to see if Spotify filter the type of guest he has on. I doubt it.

It depends on the podcast, doesn't it?

If we continue down the road of 'it's great he'll speak to anyone' then you could conceivably get to a point where some mad person is giving a ten hour sermon on an objectively mental and dangerous view. In response you get no serious analysis, just some headcase going off on one for ten hours straight and JR breaking it up every 20 minutes by saying "it's interesting you say that, have you ever tried DMT? Pull that up Jamie!"

If that were the case then that would definitely be a problem. I've listened to most of his 'controversial' ones and don't recognise what you've described tbh. I find he can be very agreeable with the person he's in conversation with but not to the extent where he's just allowing someone to spout off mental views without some sort of challenge. Whether that's Ben Shapiro or Abby Martin. If you listen to the Sanders one you'd be forgiven for thinking he's a socialist.

This is a long clip but an example of him ridiculing an arsehole for her extreme views



I actually do think he has been 'dangerous' with his Covid-19 views though. He's had numerous experts on and is inexplicably just ignoring their advice and telling people who hang on his every word to do the opposite.

Fair play to the cunt, he's making bank for talking shite while I'm still skint for doing the same. Monty Oh Well

I’m no fan of Rogan but he’s no more dangerous than the bbc’s 10 year fetish with Farage.

The media landscape is just weird and Rogan has contributed to it positively at times but inadvertently negatively even more.

When headcases speak to him he does lap it up a bit too much probably partly to maintain that buddy rapport that he holds so highly.

He’s had a good run at things, but even his fans will admit that it’s gone a bit stale and a bit of a meme. It’s a good decision for him to cash in now.

Imagine Begbie going after Laura Kuenssberg, when Candace Owens is even more attractive physically and even more repulsive in her views.

Is rogan not now pushing the obamagate stuff that trump has made up.

Seems like the sort of guy that people who are heavily invested in UFC, monster trucks and lynching folk would hold up as a revolutionary but is in actual fact just a dick.

The best description I've heard of Rogan, and I can't remember who made it, is that he's a stupid person's idea of what a clever person sounds like.

I'm not big on freedom of expression discourse, which has been hijacked by the right, but I think his show and others like it do fall under the umbrella of things which need to be protected on that basis. If ever he was somehow no platformed (not that I could ever imagine it happening), the left-wing podcasts would be under attack by the end of that day.

"Obamagate is real."

"You'd have to believe multiple conspiracy theories to even entertain the notion of Obamagate."

"Nah. It's real - I saw it on a YouTube video."

Big fan of Golazzo :GodIsGod 

Good hearing all the stories about the players and teams that they talk about. Loved the Totti ones.
