Though I’m a long term MMA fan I’ve never really got into the Rogan podcast.  That being said Rogan’s often in the running for the overall top podcast in listener numbers from month to month, so great exposure for JB and wrestling.

What about JB being on NBC winning Olympic Gold?

Nope. The only people who cared when JB won Olympic gold are wrestling fans. The JRE is literally the most popular podcast in the world. Millions of people have now been introduced to JB and wrestling that otherwise would not have.

JB did great. Represented himself very well. Thank god he is the accepted voice of our olympic sport in a lot of ways.... If that were Dake, the entire podcast would have devolved into conspiracy theories, and if you are a frequent Rogan listener, you known exactly what Im talking about. Thankfully JB is interesting enough not to let that happen.

He was on NBC with millions of people watching.  Multiple times.  Good morning America, etc.

He’s not wrong. There probably isn’t much crossover on a venn diagram between Rogan listeners and GMA watchers - I think it’s fair to say this did expose Burroughs to a group of people who may not have known anything about him or heard of him. He won Olympic gold nine years ago and those spots aren’t fresh in the minds of too many.

I’m about halfway through the episode and I’m grateful he’s such a great ambassador for the sport.

I would say NBC and Good Morning America have a smaller reach/impact on pop culture than JRE. NBC and GMA didnt have a sitdown 1 on 1, 3 hour conversation analyzing the life of a wrestler and was like a quick shoutout/props. The podcast brought more attention to wrestling than anything else.

The Joe Rogan podcast describes JB as a four-time Olympic Gold medalist.  Is it common that he over-inflates the credentials of his guests?  

Or the individual who writes the show notes isn't exactly down on the sport enough to know the difference.

It isn’t a Rogan specific issue. I’m not a fan of his podcast (partially Bc most of it discusses false information), but they didn’t inflate the credentials deliberately.

He’s got nearly 1600 episodes, saying “most of it discusses false information” isn’t accurate. I pick and choose my episodes based on the guests, but he’s had a large net of guests and some are wildly whacked out of their minds, while others are highly intelligent and educated.

He’s not for everyone, but a handful of polarizing guests doesn’t make “most” of his 1,591 episodes centered around discussing false information.

I’m not just talking about when he has Alex Jones in there. He also pushes a lot of bro science and other pseudo science bs. 
 
 It’s not literally most of the time they speak, but it’s common

I don't even listen to Rogan's podcast, but I would not be willing to accept your premise as accurate without specifics. For someone like me who is unwilling to accept your premise just because you say it is so (As you know, I am skeptical of many claims people make), you should easily be able to point to 3 of his podcasts and cite the time of and nature of the false information. Btw, I presume you to mean he "promotes" false information even though you wrote he "discusses" false information.

Agree TBar.  It is very difficult these days to discern false information as it is coming out of all facets of society's delivery.  Scary times. Common tactic of the self righteous these days to call out someone's sources without providing any of their own.  

It's media sources trying to steal clicks and viewers.

 

Regardless, JB did well on the podcast because he is a great dude.

You clearly don’t listen to his podcast. He had Alex Jones on there. He had Eddie Bravo on there many times. He has had dozens of insane conspiracy theorists with no basis in reality. This isn’t a controversial take.

I guess you just hate Dake.  Why would Rogan have Kyle on to discuss the Olympic experience?  At least you get to feel better submitting this reply.

So you think Alex Jones spouts truth? Give me a break dude.

OK, so you named guests. Tell me precisely what Joe Rogan is promoting. Is he endorsing these people, and what are the specific views he endorses? I have heard of Alex Jones but don't know a thing about him. Never even heard of the other guy. Don't what about them Rogan agrees or does not agree with, but I support his first amendment rights to HIS POV, whatever that is.

There are people these days that wish to literally remove any and all conservative points of view from society. That isn't going to work out for either side, its just going to lead to ruin. It is the opposite of first amendment rights, its totalitarianism and I would fear that outcome worse than 99% of what they are trying to stamp out. 

I consider your response to be incomplete.
