Why you should be listening to the Joe Rogan Experience
My interests go as far as watching UFC (for the ones that don’t know, UFC stands for the Ultimate Fighting Champions, the biggest mixed martial arts promotion in the world), physical and mental health and much more. My one stop for all: The Joe Rogan Experience (JRE). Man, it must be great to be Joe Rogan. That guy really does so much cool stuff! Not only is he the commentator for the UFC, he’s also one of the funniest comedians and more importantly, the host of one of my favourite podcasts. In his JRE podcast, Joe Rogan seems to cover it all with a huge dose of humour.
So, if you’re looking to be entertained while learning at the same time, make sure to tune into this podcast. To get you started, here are some of my top picks!
Interviews with fighters
As the commentator of the UFC Rogan has the privilege to invite fighters over for an interview. I loved listening to each one of these. As I am always curious about their rituals and habits that influence their fight performance.
She’s the former bantamweight champion in the female division of the UFC. Ronda Rousey is the woman that put mixed martial arts in a whole new light. Besides that, she created the don’t be a DNB movement. DNB stands for a do-nothing bitch, someone who just likes to be pretty but doesn’t contribute anything to society. As #careerlions we applaud not being a DNB!
Miesha Tate, also a former bantamweight champion, talks about her food intake as a fighter and the ketogenic diet during her interview with Joe Rogan. Not only is she a great mixed martial artist, this lady has the nicest most soothing voice ever!
Interviews about health
Did you know Joe Rogan used to be the host of a show called Fear Factor? I used to watch this with my brother when we were little. We used to be grossed out by all the sheep testicles, insects and cow eyes the contenders had to eat. Now, Joe Rogan seems to be giving food advice that is more of a nutritional nature.
Dr. Rhonda Patrick
Dr. Rhonda Patrick has a PhD in biomedical science and the founder of FoundMyFitness. She elaborates on the effects of nutrition on our physical and mental performance. Definitely a must-listen!
The Dutch Iceman Wim Hof has been experimenting with breath exercises that increase physical performance. He has proven his method by confronting extreme colds while swimming world record distances under ice. Now, universities have picked up the method and are trying to find the scientific substance of the method.
Interviews with more cool people
The interviewees of the JRE podcast range even wider than health and fighters. Other world level performers are appearing in episodes.
This guy is one of the funniest comedians in the world if you’d ask me. Give this one a listen if you’re in the mood to laugh!
This guy needs no introduction, right?
I usually listen to The Joe Rogan Experience during my commutes. I often find myself laughing so hard, people are looking into my car to see what’s going on. Let us know in the comments below, what is your favourite podcast? Are you going to see whether the JRE is something for you?
