He has interesting guests on sometimes. At this point, his value prop is that he can get big names on and have free-form conversations with them. Sometimes the conversations turn into Joe and the guest talking about some common interest of theirs, e.g. elk hunting, which is not always great, but I think that's the result of having the conversation take its natural course.

He doesn't constantly pander to left-wing shibboleths which is enough to get him bucketed as a Fascist Nazi by the Woke crowd. Depending on the guest's status in society, Joe may not push back as much as he should. Regardless, it's a superior conversation format than anything you'll see on network TV.

Wow haven't checked this in awhile but very typical that the free speech crew absolutely loses their shit and puts mad hyperbole when presented with relatively minor criticism. I think ut wants to deplatform me and dtr??

Dang sorry didn't know you asked for me by name here but sure I'll bite. I think Rubin is a level beyond Rogan and much more consistently amplifies white nationalists and other such scum. Therefore I consider him to overall "hurt" the national discourse. And would therefore follow, giving him ad revenue also "hurts". A pretty small hurt though. If you are somehow able to watch without giving revenue, thats a different story as long as you are careful. The human brain can turn "hate watch" into interest pretty quickly, I know I've been there.

Anyway I'm off to picket Ulysses Thomas Ownchaski at his house at 1234 Fake St, Doxton NC

I’m in slight disagreement here. My own opinions and beliefs are informed and shaped by the opinions and beliefs I oppose. Dave Rubin is a scum human and consistently invites on awful people. Knowing who they are and what they believe is useful to me. If this method turns someone into a nazi well....they were always a nazi.

Rogan I don’t find interesting or controversial and I don’t listen to his interviews.

Also Worrying about ad revenue is pointless. We all go through life providing revenue to reprehensible things. The phone I’m typing on has gold in it some poor kid probably died digging out of the mud. I wish I could avoid that but I can’t call up Tim Cook and ask him to stop.

Maybe a better analogy is seeing a guy force kids to dig up gold, buying the gold from him, and then throwing the gold away bc you hate gold.

There isn't a really a complicated or necessary relationship in this case. Every ad view gives Rubin money and every video view moves the bids up in the algorithms, helping to get more viewers. You watching or not watching isn't gonna make or break but it's be really easy to stop. And only minorly difficult to continue to learn about these figures, perhaps from a source that offers more challenge.

My bigger concern would be the Geniuses in the Apple Store trying to get me to buy a new Macbook because my other one had a loose connector and they quoted me $1200 to fix it. But that's just another reason I'm PC/Android.

Def fuck Apple.

Welcome to the Apple store, why don't you come back in three days and we will fit you in? Oh you're on a contract assignment and can't be out that long? You can buy a MacBook Pro for $2500.

That was the last Mac laptop I'll ever buy.

I think Joe Rogan is a useful idiot in the sense that if someone is a fan of his podcast, there's a good chance they've got some kind of really shitty & dumb idea about life I need to be prepared to learn about.

because none of this is a discussion. the way we do debates and politics isn't discussion, joe rogan isn't discussion, conservative media isn't discussion, etc...

providing an outlet to amplify the message of hateful people, while offering no critical push-back or debate, and then beaming it to thousands of people (millions? how many subscribers does joe rogan have?) is not a discussion. Wrong opinions and practices can't yield to fact and argument when no fact an argument is offered (the next part of the sentence is important here: "facts and arguments, to produce any effect on the mind, must be brought before it"). Joe Rogan isn't offering critical facts and arguments, he is merely amplifying bullshit messages -- John Stuart Mill's statement doesn't apply at all to this context.

^^ Save the fact that there has been notable push back--notably the Candice Owens climate change one.

How do you ensure Cletus in Garner who recently lost his job from being swayed into white nationalism? Something tells me that's not a Rogan problem.

I don't think Cletus is finding these people on Rogan.

My question is more what's your solution for reducing it? Get rid of Rogan and other long form content so they can listen to Hannity?

Maybe Rogan could absolutely shit on these people instead of bringing them on for a nominally friendly interview?

Let me ask this: do you think a Jones appearance on Rogan is more likely to decrease his viewership, increase it or have absolutely zero effect?

I'd argue increase is clearly the most likely. Zero effect seems unlikely just bc how many things have no results? A decrease seems unlikely bc Jones fans are already pretty deep down a hole, not sure why Rogan would sway them without some very intense attacks. On the other hand, some portion of the listener ship will have little to no familiarity. Even if Rogan is generally negative to Jones, some ideas and convos will come out and a small percentage of listeners may say "Hmmm interesting. Rogan kinda shat on it but I'd like to hear more." Just by being on the show, he is validated as someone worth listening to.

I'm not sure why wanting fewer people to rot their brain listening to joe rogan has to solve all the problems, why should ending all radicalism be the goal or metric? Why isnt any small impact to reduce his listeners a net good?
