It’s possible that Spotify gave him no choice and insisted on it.
Either way, his existence is an indictment of a society that willingly enriches and exalts thumbheads who are notable for goading people into eating buckets of worms and crickets, among his other [sic] “talents”.

His wiki page doesn't sound so extreme. I sure don't agree with him on some shit for sure but overall he's not as extreme as I thought he would be or as others like the Human Rights Campaign have made him out to be. Is it that they don't like that he interviews controversial people? Gee they would have hated Dick Cavett and Tom Snyder.
I agree with him on this: Rogan has been an outspoken critic of trans women fighting other women in MMA matches. Why that awful transphobe!!!!!
I will give him this - he sure made something of himself after playing a handyman to the other bigger names and his wife didn't end up shooting and killing him.

He was a muscle stud and I waited for him to come out. Then, he went homophobic. Then, he went “Live and Let Live, But I Love The Pussy Attached To A Woman”. Then, he went hardcore 16 year-old Bro for a cable show. This year, I found out he does podcasts and stupid guys think they’re provocative.
I’ve seen to cousins travel that road and both transitioned. That’s going to be an ugly woman.

Yea that's me and I didn't see some extremist positions at the wiki article except he supported Bernie and some other things I can't remember now. He seems like how he is described there - kind of a libertarian wanting to legalize weed, supporting gay marriage and anti-cancel culture. Maybe supporting Bernie fits in with that. Maybe being a comedian fits in with refusing to be censored.
I have never listened to one of his podcasts but I suspect that people hate him and want to tar and feather him because he has guests that others don't approve of. Sorry but that kind of censorship is utter bullshit. I am sure there will be things I disagree with but I never expect anyone to be perfectly in line with me.
R16, I never used the word "golly" but then you knew that and just wanted to create a faux narrative that only exists in your fantasy world.

He did choose her as his wife and the mother of his children. Don't tell me he was too stupid to see her for what she was all along. Her drug addiction and risky behavior didn't start overnight. He chose her cause she was the best modelly looking Hollywood wannabe he could get. There were signs of her mental illness for quite a while.
Hey I love Brad Pitt but I still think he was an idiot for choosing Angelina Jolie to mother his children. Look how that turned out.

As someone who worked on the Hill back in the 1980s and attended many of Biden's committee hearings - Foreign Relations mostly - I can assure people that he always said stupid things. LOL! He was notorious for non sequiturs and scrambling facts. I have a clear memory of listening to him garble WW2 history and exchanging glances with other attendees while we stifled laughter.
I just don't buy that he has any kind of dementia at all. People are just looking for it and misinterpreting his speech issues - okay and maybe his other deficiencies. But not dementia.

I don’t agree with everything he says, but the point of a lot of his shows. The point is that you don’t have to agree with everyone, and we should discuss things, ask questions, be critical, etc. I used to think he was nuts based on what I read in the news, but have a different perspective after actually listening to his shows. I think that Trump has put us on high alert, so many of us have become hyper-vigilant. The irony is that it’s made things worse, and we need to lower the temperature so that we don’t have right and left wing extremists running the country.

By “running the country”, I don’t mean the president, specifically. Multiple people in government are responsible for running the United States of America. That’s not including those that influence the direction we move in, even if they’re not in government.

"I’m pretty sure that someone that describes the Catholic Church as “the largest kid fucking organization in the world” is NOT right wing."
Joe Rogan finds Alex Jones fascinating and has had him on his show several times. Other guests include Gavin Mcinnes, Ben Shapiro, Milo Yiannopoulos, Dan Crenshaw and many more. Yes, he's had liberals on too - but FAR less than the right-wing nut jobs.
Then there's this quote:
“I’d rather vote for Trump than Biden. I don’t think he can handle anything. You’re relying entirely on his cabinet if you want to talk about an individual leader who can communicate, he can’t do that. And we don’t know what the fuck he’ll be like after a year in office. The pressure of being President of the United States is something that no one is prepared for. The only one who seems to be fine with it is Trump, oddly enough. He doesn’t seem to be aging at all or in any sort of decline. Obama almost immediately, started looking older. George W. (Bush), almost immediately started looking older.”

That's because most "liberals" and the left will not go on his show or others that have on other POVs. And by liberals I mean illiberals. Too many refuse to debate and only want to be interviewed by ideological affirmation shows - sort of like only allowing self-IDing gender affirming therapy.
