The Joe Rogan Experience is a long form content podcast, typically 2-3+ hours, where guests appear on the show to discuss an endless variety of topics like Health, Politics, Technology, Sports, Philosophy, Comedy, and more in a relaxed environment. It’s the perfect podcast for when you are commuting to work, exercising in the gym, or just chilling at home.

The podcast has become one of the most popular in the world and has been voted the #1 podcast of iTunes. In 2014, the podcast won a Stitcher Award for Best Overall Show and has millions of listeners each week. To illustrate the significance of the show, it is estimated to have generated at least $200 million dollars in its 4 years of existence as estimated by this article.

Joe Rogan has access to the largest network of experts in their respective fields out of any individual on earth today and is a truly enlightened individual. The amount of information he comes across each week in the form of guests on his podcasts is staggering. I’m not sure if he even truly realizes the impact that his podcast has on millions of people.

I put together a list of the top 5 Must Watch Episodes from The Joe Rogan Experience Podcast. Enjoy!

5)     Ben Greenfield

Could the cellphone in your pocket cause cancer?

Ben Greenfield is a Coach, Author, Speaker, ex-Bodybuilder and Ironman Athlete. He was also recognized as the top 100 most Influential People in Health in the year 2013.

In this podcast with Rogan, Greenfield talks about the damage EMF from Wi-Fi, injecting stem cells in his dick, floatation tanks, and more. Overall, this was an entertaining and thought provoking podcast. While a lot of this seems like “bro science”, it’s interesting to hear about Greenfield’s personal experience with self-experimentation.

4)     Andreas Antonopoulos

“The average user should pick up bitcoin: “To experience the future of money. To gain a glimpse into an exciting technology. To learn about how money could be in the future and also become aware of how limited money and banks are today.” – Andreas Antonopoulos

Andreas Antonopoulos (say that 5 times fast) is a bitcoin entrepreneur, serves on the advisory boards of several bitcoin startups and serves as the Chief Security Officer of Blockchain. He has been on the JRE several times and each time is fascinating (as Joe would say). He is also a metaphor/analogy master and if you are a fan of the English language, you have to watch this.

In this podcast, Andreas wisely breaks down the banking system and advocates for the use bitcoin in proper libertarian spirit. He talks about the history of money and the new era that cryptocurrency is ushering in. I guarantee you will be a smarter person after listening to Andreas talk. He is also the author of one of my favorite books when I was first learning about bitcoin and blockahin technology: The Internet of Money.

3)     Dr. Rhonda Patrick

Do you eat broccoli sprouts? You will after listening to this.

Listening to Dr. Rhonda Patrick has changed my life. A frequent guest of the JRE podcast, Patrick is a Ph.D. in biomedical science and expert on nutritional health. She teaches the importance of exercise and the affects that exercise has on memory and the brain. She’s a huge proponent of HIIT and every time I listen to one of her podcasts I learn something new and useful.

Her podcasts and other videos can be found at FoundMyFitness.com and she is a great Instagram follow as well.

2)     Neil Degrasse Tyson

Did you know that 2 basketballs can fit through the hoop at the same time?

Neil deGrasse Tyson is an astrophysicist, cosmologist, author, and science communicator. Tyson is the type of guy that you always wanted as your teacher back in school; an incredibly enlightened individual that makes you think of things you never thought of before.

In this podcast they passionately discuss the universe, how microwaves actually work, how to reply to trolls on Twitter., and much, much more. I listened to the whole podcast on a 3 hour walk in Central Park and time felt like it melted away – is there a phenomena time passing this fast @Tyson? He has a new book called Astrophysics for People in a Hurry , which I just ordered!

1)     Elon Musk

This man needs no introduction. Founder and CEO of Tesla and SpaceX – Elon Musk is the savior of planet Earth. This episode has over 16 million views on YouTube and was taped while Musk was amidst large controversies in the media. Rogan and Musk drink whiskey and smoke weed while chatting about the current state of the world and the possibilities for the future – on earth and on the moon.

Will artificial intelligence take over the world? How feasible is it for traffic in Los Angelos to be eliminated by digging tunnels underground? This interview cements Joe Rogan’s status as one of the greatest interviewers of all time. I watched this on a Friday night and was thoroughly entertained. A must watch.

Bonus:

I)       Steve-O

I love Steve-O and hearing him speak on getting sober was fascinating. He also shares awesome stories.

II)     Tom DeLonge

The lead singer of one of my favorite bands of all time – Blink-182 – is a very, very, strange person who thinks he’s been in contact with aliens.

III)     Dan Bilzerian

This man has suffered three heart attacks before the age of 32, so I’m glad Joe Rogan was able to get him on the podcast at least once. While I have no interest in living this type of lifestyle, Bilzerian lives an unreal life and it was amusing to listen to.
