After listening to the Joe Rogan podcast for the past 6 years, I’d say I have a pretty good handle on which podcasts were the best. I also have my own podcast so I understand when a conversation is more than just two people talking and the audience are genuinely engaged. I’d say I’ve listened to at least 400 full Joe Rogan podcasts and as a minimum, snippets of the ones I couldn’t find time for.

The Joe Rogan podcast has manifested some of the greatest conversations from our era. As many say, Joe Rogan is Oprah for men and it’s hard to argue.

Joe Rogan has interviewed some of the most interesting people from all walks of life, including everyone from Dan Bilzerian to Elon Musk to Kevin Hart, two individuals who couldn’t be further apart.

There’s been well over 1,000 Joe Rogan podcasts and climbing. In this post we want to take a look at the 27 best Joe Rogan podcasts in no particular order.

Joe Rogan & Dan Bilzerian


The Dan Bilzerian podcast is one of my personal favourites. Dan’s podcast was able to capture humour whilst telling some of the best stories we’ve ever heard on the Joe Rogan podcast.

Hearing Dan Bilzerian talk about women, drugs, Vegas, gambling and the military was not only eye opening but somewhat educational for the modern man.

Joe Rogan & Brendan Schaub


Brendan and Joe have carried out many podcasts to date, but this may be the best of all.

When Brendan Schaub and Joe Rogan get together it’s guarenteed humour. In this podcast they were breaking down the upcoming Mayweather vs McGregor fight but deviated to speak about many other topics.

The most notable was Johnny Depp and how his spending has got out of control.

Joe Rogan & Tim Kennedy


One of the most interesting podcasts ever on the Joe Rogan show.

Tim Kennedy spoke about his documentary on the Nazi’s who according to Tim fled Germany at the end of WW2 and settled in Argentina.

To add to this, Tim strongly believes that Hitler was among the party that escaped!

Joe Rogan & Alex Jones/Eddie Bravo


Episode 911 – says it all really. Alex Jones is the world’s biggest conspiracy theorist, Eddie bravo perhaps the 2nd. Add alcohol and we have one hell of a crazy podcast.

Alex Jones has been on the Joe Rogan podcast since, however this one tops the bill as it’s episode 911 which makes it all too perfect to match.

Joe Rogan & Jamie Foxx


Jamie Foxx is an extremely interesting man. On this episode of the Joe Rogan podcast Jamie displays his multidiverse personality and talks about various topics including his many celebrity friends and the stories that accompany them.

Joe Rogan & Elon Musk


Elon Musk recently featured on the Joe Rogan podcast which sprung up many talking points.

Elon is a very eccentric guy, somewhat strange in fact, combined with alcohol and Joe Rogan’s clever way of asking questions Elon opened up about many interested talking points.

Topics discussed included AI intelligence, Tesla and of course chimps.

Joe Rogan & Ben Shapiro


Ben is a fast talking highly intelligent and very controversial individual who you either love or hate.

Whatever you think of Ben, his views on race, religion, gender and more will evoke strong emotions and keep you gripped for the entire podcast.

Joe Rogan & Tom Delonge


There’s no other way to say it, Tom Delonge is a lunatic.

This podcast may not factually educate you like some of the others do, but Tom’s deluded conspiracies will certainly entertain you.

Also look out for his favourite term “I can’t say”. Tom seems to dodge every single investigative question with that phrase which is a little fishy.

Joe Rogan & Neil Degrasse Tyson


Neil Degrasse Tyson is everyone’s favourite scientist. In this podcast Neil breaksdown science 101.

In short everything you thought you knew about science will be tested by someone it seems has all the logical answers.

Joe Rogan & Mike Tyson


Iron Mike Tyson made his way to Joe Rogan’s studios in early 2019.

Mike spoke about all the craziness that went on during his early/fight year. He also speaks about the man he is today how he’s changed and his weed business.

Joe Rogan & Bill Burr


Bill Burr is one of the funniest guys alive. His outspoken and carefree attitude is the perfect mix for the Joe Rogan podcast.

Bill and Joe go way back so the chemistry works well, simply sit back and enjoy a few laughs for the next few hours.

Joe Rogan & Jocko Willink


Jocko Willink is an ex Navy Seal. He epitomises what it means to be driven, focused and resilient.

He runs through some of his techniques, beliefs and stories in this extremely motivating podcast making it one of the best Joe Rogan podcasts of all time.

Joe Rogan & Henry Rollins


Joe and Henry Rollins speak about Henry’s time and experiences in North Korea.

One discussion involves Henry having to flee North Korea fearing for his life and safety. Certainly an entertaining listen.

Joe Rogan & Jordan Peterson


Jordan Peterson is the go-to guru for modern men. Many believe Jordan is the Father figure they never had.

His views on masculinity, attraction, alpha males and more are interesting topics for any man.

Joe Rogan & GSP


GSP is one of the greatest MMA fighters of all time and many believe he is the best espeicially in Canada where GSP is from.

As Joe Rogan is the UFC commentator, him and GSP cover all topics related to MMA. For any MMA fans this is your dream podcast.

Joe Rogan & Theo Von


Theo Von like Joe is a successful comedian and one of the funniest in the world.

Theo has a way of thinking like no other comic out there right now which translates to perhaps the funniest podcast of all time.

Look out for the vietnemese starter move!

Joe Rogan & Guy Ritchie


Guy Richie is a successful British film director and also a keen MMA fan.

As you can see by Guy’s attire he likes to dress well, a topic he drops some valuable knowledge about in the podcast that will help any man in life.

Joe Rogan & Brian Cox


In one of the earlier but new format Joe Rogan podcasts popular British scientist Brian Cox breaks down the in’s and out’s of the universe.

A very educational podcast but if that’s your thing, then extremely entertaining.

Joe Rogan & Ari Shaffir, Bert Kreischer and Tom Segura | Sober October 2 Recap


Joe Rogan and three of his closest friends do something called sober October where they go drink and drug free for a month with as many gym sessions as possible.

Hearing them speak about their experiences whilst getting high and drunk is hilarious and makes you feel like part of the celebrations.

Joe Rogan & Lawrence Krauss


Lawrence Krauss is an extremely intelligent man, perhaps too intelligent when he “Blows Joe Rogan’s mind” with some of his new age science.

If you can keep up with Lawrence Krauss, then this is a Joe Rogan podcast that you have to watch.

Joe Rogan & Louis Theroux


Louis Theroux is a very successful documentary maker.

The documentary current at the time was his exploration of Scientology which Louis and Joe went in-depth on in this podcast.

Joe Rogan & Lance Armstrong


In this Joe Rogan podcast Lance Armstrong reveals all regarding his doping scandal that rocked the world of cycling and sports as a whole.

For any cycling fans or people who have heard Lance’s story this one will grip you throughout.

Joe Rogan & Gary Vaynerchuk


At the time Gary Vaynerchuk was the most popular name in the entrepreneur community.

His YouTube videos and passionate rants attracted a huge audience and still does today. In this Joe Rogan podcast Gary Vaynerchuk is true to form and delivers the energy that has made him so successful to date.

Joe Rogan & Edward Snowden


For anyone who hasn’t watched the film “Snowden” Edward was working for the NSA when he realised that the government were spying on people.

Edward downloaded this information, managed to get it out of America, handed it over to journalists and now lives in exile from the US hence why he isn’t in the studio with Joe.

Joe Rogan & Ron Miscavige


Ron Miscavige is the unfortunate Father of David Miscavige the leader of Scientology.

This nutcase made his own Dad’s life hell and hasn’t spoken to him in years since Ron left Scientology.

Hearing his story is mind blowing and you can’t help but feel sorry for the guy.

Joe Rogan & Kevin Hart


You see Kevin’s shows and expect him to simply be the funny guy all the time. But in episode #1278 Kevin showed his other attributes also.

This includes his love for life, his motivational words, his level headedness, workrate, life lessons and more. Watch this episode and unsurprisingly you’ll laugh, but surprisingly you’ll go away with some life lessons more suited to a Tony Robbins seminar.

Joe Rogan & Bob Lazar


The go-to guy for anything “aliens”. Bob apparently spent time at Area 51 working on some of the UFO’s that were supposed to be housed there.

One of Joe’s most popular podcasts of all time. Joe reguarly mentions Bob Lazar and to finally get him on the podcast was great for fans.
