Just read a long article in The Atlantic about Joe Rogan. He's huge with young men these days - many of what I consider to be the brightest kids I teach are disciples of Joe Rogan which is interesting because I think he's wrong about a lot of things. It makes sense though because he's charismatic and these are the kids that are paying attention. Less engaged kids don't know who he is.

most of my college friends love his podcast. i like a few episodes, thatís definitely why heís so big with my demographic. however i think itís more for the various guests he has than him himself; itís just that heís the common denominator. iím not too big into him but i love the kevin hart and elon musk episodes of the podcast, they talk about a lot of cool stuff. add in that he choked out a contestant on fear factor and heís a role model for any young testosterone factory.

Justin likes his podcast. Not sure his past on MMA and Fear Factor leads me to see how he is qualified to spread his opinion far and wide, but to each his own.
