The Joe Rogan Experience (or sometimes referred to by listeners as the Powerful JRE), is a podcast hosted by famous UFC Commentator and comedian, Joe Rogan, who is on a self-imposed quest, to explore the depths of life in any detail possible. Scientific fields/studies, philosophy, fighting, art and entertainment, and comedy are all topics that appear on the podcast, with a variety of guests (whether or not said guest has an “expert” viewpoint or opinion) who contribute to the understanding of a given topic, as well as a different perspective.
There is probably a plethora of podcasts out there with the same goal as the Powerful JRE, however, Joe Rogan’s approach to interviews and questioning are completely unique. Rogan appears to use no judgement and performs extensive research before the time of an interview to ensure the continuance of a productive conversation. In the vast majority of interviews, Rogan creates an open atmosphere in which the interviewee can talk on a more personal and intimate level, allowing for an even more open and honest assessment of the topic being discussed, from both Rogan and the interviewee. And not only is the conversation productive, it’s also incredibly entertaining. Joe Rogan is a comedian, and jokes are bound to fly. This, coupled with the personal atmosphere created, the interviewee most often (if not always) is able to interject personal experiences into their proposals and arguments, which make for great laughs. That is why the Joe Rogan Experience is such a wonderful podcast. Not only is the JRE always an educational experience, but it is always entertaining. Joe Rogan also implicitly persuades his audience to think as objectively as possible, avoiding judgement until enough perspectives and facts are brought to the table and well analyzed. Everyone could stand to take a few pages out of Joe Rogan’s book, so if you feel so inclined, take a listen of the JRE. It’s guaranteed that no matter what episode you listen to, you are bound to find something interesting.
