Why is Joe Rogan So Popular? How Do I Handle My Bitterness?

I had someone ask me, “Why do you think Joe Rogan is so popular? and I took some time to do some research. I wrote a blog post/video at https://schoolofpodcasting.com/how-to-do-a-podcast-like-joe-rogan/

Things I Learned/Noticed

  • Joe can be a bit of a lightning rod. You either love him or hate him
  • Joe had impostor syndrome.
  • Joe only has guests he wants to talk to
  • Joe creates an environment where people don't have to worry about triggering others. They talk freely.
  • Joe actually mocks/jokes with his guests. Who do you do this with? Your closest friends. 
  • Joe is authentic and it resonates.
  • He spent years learning how to entertain audiences and eventually moved to where he could get more work.
  • While he is a celebrity, that may work to get you to press play ONCE, but you need to deliver value to get them to click AGAIN. 
  • Joe states the top skills for an interviewer are listening and thinking

My Opinion

I listen to Joe's show when I see a guest I know and want to no more.

I believe Joe could use some editing. Not to make it 20 minutes, but there are times when I am asking, “How did this make it past the edit?”

THE BOTTOM LINE

You need to be comfortable being yourself. When you try to be someone else, it's hard and doesn't work. That added weight of being someone else leads to burnout.

Play to your strengths. Let your humor shine if you have it. If you're more serious, then build a show around it. 

Everyone's biggest fear is to create a show while being themselves will result in a show that's not popular. There are SO MANY reasons why a show can fail, but I can help you avoid the most common mistakes.
