A podcast is an episodic series that can be listened to on a computer, tablet, or mobile device. These can contain interviews, discussions, or commentary. It’s a sort of new-age radio show for the modern age.
Podcasts were originally popular back in 2004 when iPods became increasingly popular. Users wanted something entertaining to listen to when they were on the bus or working out at the gym. The current generation of millennials are now in their 20s and 30s with lives so busy that they often don’t have time to sit down and read blogs or articles anymore — but they still want information! So podcasting has become a convenient way for them to learn about everything from business strategies to personal development.
How is Joe Rogan enhancing the podcasts?
For the most part, podcasts are informational rather than entertainment-based. But the Joe Rogan Experience is an exception to that rule. Hosted by popular stand-up comedian Joe Rogan, JRE is a podcast about all things related to MMA and Mixed Martial Arts.
Joe Rogan himself is a big fan of MMA, and he has been into this sport since his early days as an adult. He was one of the first people to explain how brutal this sport can be. Nowadays, many people are attracted to this podcast because it provides an inside look into what goes on behind the scenes — away from all the glitz and glamour of Hollywood movies like ‘The Fighter’ or ‘The Wrestler.’
Rogan’s podcast allows MMA fans to get a sneak peek into the real life of an MMA fighter. His podcast has featured fighters like Shamrock, Randy Couture, and Matt Serra discussing the struggles of being in the sport and what it takes to be a true champion.
Details on comedy podcasts of Joe Rogan
As the title suggests, his podcast is comedy-based. But it is not a typical comedy podcast. The host of JRE is more like a comedian himself rather than an interviewer. He often says funny things to him — at least for this particular podcast. He reacts to his past experiences with humor, and he gets technical with his subjects as well—for example, after sitting through a documentary about The Life of Pablo, he gives his opinion on why it was not worth the hype that came with it.
Joe Rogan has received great acclaim for being funny among MMA fans and in the mainstream public. He has been featured on his television show, Fear Factor, on NBC, and Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) programs and live events.
Compared with other podcasts, Joe Rogan often creates a lot of controversy with the subject matters he discusses in his podcast. In one particular episode, he commented on how he would not want to see gay people being tortured or hurt because of their sexuality but at the same time; he wouldn’t want them to hold hands in public either.
Being gay is a very sensitive topic in today’s world. For any celebrity to discuss it publicly can be quite risky since many people strongly believe homosexuality is wrong.
