#3: Joe Rogan: The Beginner's Guide [Is He a Bigot? Or an Enlightened Explorer?]
/

Joe Rogan is an American comedian, mixed martial artist, UFC commentator, and podcaster with a cult following. In 2019, his ‘Joe Rogan Experience’ (JRE) podcast was averaging 190,000,000 downloads a month — giving him a greater reach than even American mainstream media!

But is Joe (as writer Theodore Kupfer asks) a “weed-smoking DMT-obsessive, whose most cherished political cause is the quest to end male circumcision”? Or is he “one of the last bastions for civil discussion in contemporary America”?
