Definitely a great comedian, diversity generator and overall good mind.

Definitely a smart man, successful and a new age type of every-man philosopher.  Not liked by a lot of Getbiggers though, I am surprised Alex23 by somebody who likes Jesse Ventura also likes Joe Rogan.

Based on the tidbits I've heard, Rogan is a popularizer of already popularized material, distilling further content which has been derived from popularizers who themselves made the work more accessible from its original scientific/philosophical/technical origins. He's serving a purpose of sorts, but the thoughts aren't his. Anyone who is well-read like basically educated people are ought to know this. If you aren't, there's nothing wrong with that and your interest in the material is appreciable; just don't pretend Rogan made any of it.

I am not a fan of Joe Rogan the MMA commentator.
Joe Rogan's other venues, dude seems ok. But his MMA commentary is fucking obnoxious as hell.

Rogan is CIA trained. Very smart dude. Extremely disciplined in everything he does. And because of this, there's an agenda behind the way he supposedly is living.

Working as a stand up comedian, a UFC commentator,  a talk show host, a snake oils salesman, one can only conclude he is a calculated and driven business man which is respected.

But he really comes of as being part of this new cult of drug proponents which are nothing more than the hippies of our time. Nothing bad about that, but just like the old hippies they all think they are on to something, they have it all figured out, they are in the know, they will change the world, they are at the cutting edge of society. Some of his guest have had interesting things to say. But I don't keep up with it, it seems pointless for the most part.

good comedian, very good mma commentator, legit martial artist, weird but occasionally brilliantly insightful

smokes too much weed, often unnecessarily disrespectful of "traditional" martial arts, tends to believe in asinine conspiracy theories, seeker of knowledge and intellectual growth (respect), atheist?(if so, pathetic)

Joe Rogan is a stud.  Some of you may know him from TV.  Others from the UFC.  But there are a lot of fascinating dimensions to this guy.  I listen to podcasts regularly and highly recommend that you all do too.  Nothing but good thoughts and positive vibe.

He thinks Alex Jones is a bit off his rocker but thinks highly of him.  Joe is a pretty open minded guy when it comes to whacky conspiracy theories.  He doesn't necessarily buy into them, but he doesn't just disregard them...

joe is not an intellectual and would probly be the first person to tell you that lol, he's just a wise thoughtful and insightful guy. down to earth and a real proponent of formal logic. cool dude.

annoying as an mma guy though but he get so excited I think he cant help it. knowledgeable about martial arts too, right up there with Bas as a commentator.

I know it's a matter of opinion, but as a technical MMA commentator, IMO no one comes close.  He's a national kick boxing champ and a BJJ black belt and he has huge passion for the sport.  He does sometimes get overly excited but for the most part, he enhances the experience for me.

your body is a system that is run by electricity it creates from daily  living, when doing drugs or carcinogens like smoking cause ever so slight changes in this electrical feild like small undistinguishable tumors , carcinogens do this messing up the perfect flow of current/blood/energy

Joe has a seriously large fanbase.  You have the pot aficionados, the MMA fans (UFC, strikeforce, bellator etc) and then the comedy fans (Listen to his show for the comics that are interviewed) that follow his podcast and check in every week 3-4 times.

That is an advertisers dream come true.  They once had the fleshlight as a sponsor and you know that product caters to all three of those groups perfectly.

He doesn't really push a "drug agenda".  He does focus heavily on personal development on all levels (physical, mental, spiritual).  He often talks about how pot, shrooms, DMT and other psychedelics allow you to tap into deeper realms of your consciousness and how you can benefit from that.  He's not alone in thinking that and a lot of science supports him.  That said, he also talks about harsh drugs like coke, crack, heroin, etc. and how destructive they are.
