If you have ever watched a Joe Rogan episode, you’ve probably wondered what made it popular in the first place. The podcast began in 2009, but the podcast’s popularity only increased after the show’s second season, when Quentin Tarantino appeared. Other popular episodes include Elon Musk’s second appearance and the interview with Quentin Tarantino. Regardless of the reason, Joe Rogan’s podcast continues to attract new fans every day.
Quentin Tarantino’s interview with Joe Rogan
In a recent interview, director Quentin Tarantino spoke about a number of controversial topics, including Harvey Weinstein, pending retirement after his next film, and movie violence against women. Joe Rogan, a podcast host, asked Tarantino about the controversy surrounding his new 400-page novelization of his Oscar-winning film Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. Tarantino responded by calling Weinstein a “f***ed-up father figure.”
Tarantino was candid about his stance on the PC Police and his willingness to write scenes that might make people uncomfortable. The renowned filmmaker explained that he never resisted taking on the PC Police. In an interview with Joe Rogan, Tarantino explained why he didn’t care about whether a female character got beaten up in Hateful 8 or not. In his defense, she was an unsavory character who had done bad things before.
The controversy surrounding Tarantino’s use of the N-word on his podcast sparked criticism from many Hollywood stars, including Samuel L. Jackson, who has appeared in Quentin Tarantino’s films, also spoke about the controversy. In February, a cancel culture mob vowed to shut down Joe Rogan’s show, saying that he was spreading “misinformation” regarding COVID-19.
Alex Jones’ second appearance on the show
Alex Jones’ second appearance on Joe Rogan is still a topic of intense debate. He was banned from many social media sites and his podcast has drawn widespread criticism. While a tad more critical, Rogan did not do a great job pushing back against Jones. In fact, he did more to make Jones comfortable, including spending time reminding listeners of Jones’ past successes. Ultimately, the three-hour interview was unnecessary.
Among other things, Jones’ comments about the Sandy Hook massacre were widely criticized. His claim that the attack was staged prompted the families to sue him for defamation and forced him to pay a $100,000 settlement. Thankfully, Jones has since acknowledged that the massacre did occur. His latest appearance on Rogan was a controversial one on vaccines, as Rogan attempted to fact-check Jones’ claims that vaccines cause polio and other diseases.
In his first appearance on the show, Jones questioned whether wearing a mask will protect you from COVID. However, this was not true. Rogan also pushed back on Jones’ claims that wearing a mask does not protect you from coronavirus. In addition, he claimed that an oral vaccine funded by Bill Gates caused polio. In addition to pushing back on Jones’ misinformation, he also pointed to a recent Associated Press article about thirteen cases of polio in Sudan.
Elon Musk’s second appearance on the show
After a brief break from his rocket-powered SpaceX company, Elon Musk returned to Joe Rogan’s show for his second appearance. This time, he spoke about the inner workings of neural link technology, and the differences between blunts and joint missiles. As one of the most talked-about guests in podcast history, Musk’s second appearance is the most watched episode.
Rogan’s unique style of interviewing has helped his show become so popular, which is no small feat. His guests often feature people who aren’t exactly mainstream, ranging from former Hollywood actors to ‘woke’ culture critics. Whether it’s Elon Musk or the comedian Russel Brand, he has a wide range of audiences. In the most recent episode, he interviewed Elon Musk after his post-Pedo rant.
Although Elon Musk has only appeared on the show twice, his second appearance is the most-viewed episode ever. The episode garnered over 37 million views, making it the fourth-most-viewed episode of the show. According to Joe Rogan, Elon Musk has appeared in two of Joe Rogan’s top four episodes and has made more than $40,000 per episode. In addition, his podcast has received many awards for its content, and it’s widely regarded as one of the most entertaining shows on the internet.
