New Segment Alert!
Your Favorite Podcast Sucks!
Today we’ll discuss why I think the Joe Rogan Experience SUCKS! It goes without saying that JRE is one of the most successful, most impactful podcasts ever created. Joe is a great interviewer and his lifestyle is one that men all of the world are jealous of.
But…there’s a lot of reasons why it sucks.
Welcome ladies and gents to the podonthego SHOW. I’m Razz, I’m the owner and the host of the show. Today, this week we’ve been continuing a theme of new beginnings, and we’re going to continue that theme with a new segment idea that I have it is called your favorite podcast sucks a lot like your favorite band sucks. If you ever heard that podcast really cool podcasts, we’re going to do your favorite podcasts because there are a lot of great podcasts. There’s also a lot of noise out there. And I also think that a lot of great podcasts have you know, they they’ve snowballed so many listeners that people overlook the stuff they do badly, you know, and everybody just praises them. And it’s still all this great love for all these great podcasts, which is deserved, but they still suck, you know, and like the content you’re putting out is just as good as theirs. So you just have to put the time in and wait it out and keep going. So today we’re going to cover a, a very old podcast that is, has had a lot of changes lately. So it’s also a new podcast in many ways. And that podcast is hold on.
So Rogan experience, right, Joe, Rogan’s your favorite pod? If your favorite podcast is Joe Rogan, your favorite podcast sucks. All right. And here’s why there’s a lot of reasons, you know, w we don’t have to say I, I shouldn’t even have to say how good Joe Rogan’s podcast is. I love his podcast. I’ve listened to probably hundreds of them, honestly, all two or three hours just playing it in the background and always learned something, always come away with something that improves my life. But he changed. He changed recently, has he moved to a new studio? And everybody knows what a studio looks like. Let’s see if I upload it images. Right. Right. Who wants, who wants to look at that? You know, I don’t even know what to say. People say, it looks like the inside of a, it looks like you got abducted and you’re about to be put on the operation table in a alien spacecraft.
So it’s, I don’t know. It’s just really hard to look at the red. I don’t know it’s for something, you know, you have to have red and blue. If you’re going to do a risk based like this, they need some other colors, just too hard to watch for me. Honestly, I’ve heard rumors or read somewhere that he’s gonna change it soon back to something, you know, a better stadium. This is just a temporary space. I hope so. I hope he does it quick, you know, because like, look at how iconic the studio is, who would want to sit in there and hang out in there and, and, and smoke with Joe Rogan for a little bit in that studio. Right. So I, Connie, you got the brick wall, you got the TVs, you got, you know, Jamie has space. I don’t know. I’m sure in this studio and the rest of your Jamie’s just in a box and you know, maybe not even inside the studio, he’s just sitting there pretending he’s just pretending to be in there.
Right. but at this studio is also studio. It’s just iconic. You know, it became something bigger than it was. Yeah. So I, the new studio sucks, you know, it’s very hard. Otherwise I still listen sometimes, but I’m not downloading Spotify. I don’t want, I don’t want to listen to podcasts on Spotify, to be honest with you, I’m not paying for another service. I’m not listening to a thousand ads. This Spotify is trying to shove down my throat. I’m not doing it. You know? So I’m just love watching the clips at this point on YouTube, you know, because, because that’s another thing that sucks about his podcast. Now, if you watch his podcasts on YouTube and you have to go solely to Spotify, there’s no comments. You know, what is the Joe Rogan podcast without user and listener and viewer comments? You know, that a lot of times I was searched the comments first, before I even watched the video.
They’re such a huge part. I think he, I think his move to spot is Spotify, right? Yeah. I think his moved to, to, to the new service and the amount of money he was going to make, kind of made him not think about his viewers and listeners that was became a community. The, the comments did, and lots of times I would learn additional stuff from the comments that I wouldn’t even read or learn from the video, or I would miss things and people will leave timestamps with something that’s really funny or really insightful, or really, you know, educational in the comments. So there’s no comments on the new platform, just a lot of money for Joe Rogan. Okay.
Right. I such an iconic studio got the space suit in the back. You got all the, what nots and whatever on the, on the desk, you got the cool mix to table to bring a background of photos. It was awesome. Right. Second, it says, move to Texas. I don’t understand it. I get it. You know, I get moving to Texas. I get, you know, with the pandemic happening nobody wants to be in California, but if, honestly, if you have as much influence and power and financial support as Joe Rogan does, why not stay in your state and use your influence to make things better for everybody around you and make things better for the people in your community, rather than moving to town and you know, potentially making them, making things worse, you know, not, not adding to the state. Maybe you do add to the state.
I mean, you are Joe Rogan, but you know, why not stay in your state and make your state better instead of running to a new state? You know? So that they’re, I kind of lost a little bit of respect for them. You know, he made a ton of money trying to influence, met a lot of cool people in California. Then he runs to Texas because things got hard, you know, stay in your state and fight and make your state better. Just my, just my opinion. Not doing interviews. Another reason Joe Rogan sucks. He doesn’t do interviews, other people’s other other podcasts. You know, he went on Joey Diaz once or twice years ago. He was interviewed by Jordan Peterson and he cut them off early after an hour and a half or so of doing an interview. But it’s like, I get it.
You’re busy, but all these there’s a lot of people out there who love you and why not go on their podcasts as well. You know, you have all these friends, you have this, this rat Joe Rogan and his crew is like the new rat pack, you know, Joe Rogan and Joey Diaz. I don’t know who else you know, Brenton, SRE, Brenda Shaw, Burt Chrysler, all these guys, Thompson, Jura, all these guys are like the, the new rat pack, right? They are just at the top of the comedy world, the entertainment world and they get along great. They have this little cabal that they, that they do, but it’s like, why not go on other people’s interviews? Are you above other people? It’s like, get over yourself a little bit, Joe, go on somebody else’s podcast, you know, go out there and, and help other podcasts, you know, in a way that, so, so you could share a little bit more of yourself. I don’t know. That’s just my suggestion to me in my head is like, Joe feels like he’s better than other people because he doesn’t have to go on their podcast. I’m doing so much, I’m so successful, but now you’re not going to take any time or go on anybody else’s podcast. So to me, and I get it maybe one day when this, this little show we’ll have 40 million views and episodes, or at least a million views an episode, then I won’t go on other people’s podcasts either, but I doubt it.
Right. And then the last thing why I think his podcast sockets is just, he I’ll show you the clips first. Let’s do that
Problem solving with dire physical consequences handled it’s entirely possible. It’s entirely possible. [inaudible]
All right. How funny is that? He says, he’s, he says these things over and over on his podcast. And that’s, that just comes with the lay of the land where you’ve done, you know, literally thousands of episodes with I guess hundreds of thousands of hours. You’re going to say things over and over. But one thing that I hate that he says over and over is his idea of hard work and discipline, like yes, you to work hard. Yes, you need to have discipline, but that’s not the truth for everybody. Like you, a janitor can work as hard as any general earth, harder than any genital earth. And they’re still not going to be super Uber successful. You know, like there’s, there’s luck, that’s involved, there’s connections. That’s involved with success. There is education that’s involved. There are friends and family members and, you know, there’s, there’s all kinds of things, a lot of luck also, but there’s, there’s all these things that go into being a successful business owner or just person in life in general, that hard work and discipline can’t solve.
You know, it’s more so about consistency and it’s got a lot to do with finding the right path. You know, I could, you know, maybe this path isn’t for me, even though I’ve been working hard at it for, for the last five, six years, you know, but no matter how hard I work, it’s only, you know, it’s only going to happen when it happens. So it’s all about me staying consistent. And it’s not about how it’s about working smart. It’s about being consistent. It’s not so much about working hard because you can work hard going in the wrong direction. You know, I watched a documentary recently about, I think it’s called bigger, bigger, faster, stronger. It was free on YouTube. Really cool video is about it’s about this. This guy grew up in a home with three brothers. Anyway, the idea you’ve probably, you’ve probably seen it.
If you haven’t seen it, you should watch it. The idea is that one of his brothers wanted to become a professional wrestler. So he did everything he could and including taking steroids, including moving to the right state you know, getting closer, he’s he, you know, doing all these amateur wrestling events and he just never, just never made it, but he’s putting his self and his wife through years and years of hard you know, just hard trials and tribulations trying to follow this dream. That’ll never happen no matter how hard he works at it, no matter how disciplined he is about, about his craft and about his love, it’s never going to happen because he just doesn’t have it. So it’s like a certain, a certain point. You got to find how you can be adaptable, how you can adapt so that your dream can still be a reality.
Even if it’s not the way you planned, no matter how much hard work you put in, or how much discipline you put in how much discipline you have. You’re not always going to, you know, get swept off your feet, or you’re not always going to your dreams. Aren’t always going to come true. So it’s about being adaptive when it’s about accepting life, as it comes sometimes, you know, hard work does play a role. You can’t be lazy, discipline, doesn’t play a role. You have to you know, do what you say you’re going to do when you say you’re going to do it, but that’s more about integrity and it’s more about consistency. So that’s something that I don’t like because also he’s, you know, I’m sure he had a tough time childhood. I don’t know his whole backstory like that, but I’m sure I’m sure Joe had a tough childhood.
I’m sure that he’s worked his off to get where he is to get where he’s at, but this is not the case for everybody. Like how many comedians and podcasters and MMA fans have a ton of hard work and a ton of discipline. And it’s still not as successful as Joe is. So there’s all these other factors that play into hallmark and distance. So I just don’t want people to, you know, I hate, I hate that. He says that all the time, because I don’t, I hate that was like a mentality I had when I was a kid and, or, you know, if I just focus on one thing, if I just work my tail off, if I just, you know, just go really hard, always working, always working that something’s going to happen and I’ll be a millionaire before I know it, but it doesn’t always work like that.
You know, there’s a lot of other factors involved, including who, you know, a lot of times that’s more important than, you know, what’s, you know, you know who, you know, all right. Outside of that, I love Joe’s podcast. Right? It’s a tremendous podcast. And yeah, I haven’t listened to it since, since the move, because I don’t like the move. I don’t like that. He, that he sold, sold us out. Sold the comments out and moved to this bad studio, moved to Texas and just changed up the whole vibe. But you know what? I wish him the best. And I would love to be on the show one day, I, then he got so watching, this is the podonthego SHOW, I’m the owner Razz.
