Yep. He sold out. I can’t blame him.

Good for Joe, he's earned it for sure. I liked his podcasts for the most part. Some of his more liberal guests get annoying and I just turn it off when it looks like thats the direction it's going. Lately though he is definitely aligning with more conservative views and things the libs are out of control. Living in Ca can make one sour on liberalism if you enjoy freedom at all.

from a Communist pov, he's a sellout to the Man

and from the Capitalist pov, He Made It

to me he's nothing but an entertainer with an opinion who won't be here to help me at all if the shtf and that money?

none of it will be from me...no entertainer gets a dime of my net worth because anymore, there's no way to tell what side they butter their bread, no way

and worthless??? there's no human worth that much money but I won't stand in his way to earn it, not at all...it's the fools who pay it out and expect triple that in return...and when that doesn't happen, they just ask for a bail-out from .gov or they sell out to someone some group even further out of our reach...

Let the Broadcasts Continue...till the money runs out

I’m only joking when I say he sold out. I say it because he is a pioneer in the do it on your own podcasts/internet/media.

He definitely deserves it. On his own he created a 30m a year podcast; far from worthless.

but, if he 'deserves' it, why did he have to sell out to make his fortune even larger???

wouldn't the 'honor, respect' come from simply working for yourself?

why do we have to sell-out to someone larger in order for people to consider us 'made' people?

and the money? LOL, imho, for me, millions of dollars are not required for me to say 'I've Made It'

it's not really a badge of honor if you understand, that money comes from a whole lot of other people and it doesn't need to be 'taken'...

it's not needed by them at all, in fact, i'll argue, that money, the money the advertisers will paste onto their products, that money, the money people will pay to listen to his show on his web site when it can be heard for free somewhere else, it doesn't have to be 'taken' or 'donated'...

It's Not Necessary for him to be wealthier...again, he can have it but it's now become extremely Gross

We all work for money. I have read the he was earning between 25 and 50k a podcast. Not bad for 3 hrs of work but 100 mil is a nice payday for 11 years of effort. Who knows how that gets structured. Lump sum up front of 10 mil a year for 10 years or whatever.
What was nice about the podcast was you got 3 hours of conversation.. A lot of it was just BS filler but some good stuff was discussed in depth on some podcasts. I'll never pay to listen to him on spotify but it will be interesting to see if they try to control the content he puts out.

Yeah, I would assume so. Just like youtube. Hopefully not a more annoying amount. I don't go to spotify so I don't know what the normal experience is.

I do enjoy Joe's podcasts. He has had some really interesting guests and great conversations.

You sound like a hater.
that sounds ignorant...

but, tell me, what part sounds like i hate anything?

You've been trained to think, so, I offer: think another way

you'll see a larger picture

few remember the fact, left handers were taught to be right handers and immediate negative actions were felt and few remember any of that, except the left handers

why is their message, their situation not spoken about? because the rest of us don't have to understand, or even know about 'the experiment'

money fucks people up, obscene amounts of money fucks people up even faster and we don't really need to be shown that fact anymore

I've got no problem with any of it...society does, i don't

here's but another pov:
Joe made his hundreds of millions because he's probably going to make them billions...I'm cool

but, who gets millions of anything these days, let alone hundreds of millions of dollars, unless you're someone in 'the club'?

'club members are chosen, they don't decide their own fate'

i'm not hating, i'm trying like hell to figure it all out because it's never made sense to me how 'they' choose our 'heroes' and how our 'heroes' become just like 'them'

i'll equate this all here:
Joe IS in the club but he needs to remember what they did to Bruce

also: to repeat
another hundred millionaire is never just made, they're selected

The term is, "relatively." There's nothing sane about liberalism. It runs the spectrum from stupid and counter-intuitive, to raving batshit crazy.

Rogan is pretty-much on the stupid, counter-intuitive end.

I have listened to him a few times. I find it a waste. Anyone who makes money, should, with some thought, be absolutely fearful of Bernie Sanders and his ilk. Not Rogan - which tells me he has no clue of money, human nature, or human motivations. Nor does he know history, or care to learn it.

Now he's making money preaching the evils of money and entrepreneurship and the beauty of command/control economics.

I don't need to hear it. I hope he's taxed into penury, for what I fear is coming in November.

I must have missed that episode. When did he do that?

What would you call support of Bernie the Red? We know what Bernie stands for. You support Bernie, you're saying you support his views.
The polarization in politics is what’s wrong with our society.

You’re drawing something complex using only 1 single color.

He’s been called everything from communist to racist, misogynist, liberal, animal hater and right winger lol.

When it comes to free-enterprise versus State control of the means to produce, there is no grey.

It's an On/Off. As Ayn Rand noted fifty years ago, a mixed economy has many of the problems of socialism - and begins a drift, and always Left.

Socialism is usually voted in, or brought in with full support...generally led by the ambitious, supported by the envious, with everyone looking for Plunder. But socialism is almost-always removed with violent revolution.

IMHO Rogan is dangerous, in his ignorance.

I don't expect you to agree.

I know I get pissed off at him a lot when he starts with his Bernie shit too. Then other times he is very centered and more libertarian than anything else. Lately he's been making fun or pointing out the liberals that are all trying to get guns now. All of them complaining that it takes 10 days to get approved to buy a gun. Not long ago these were the same assholes that wanted to ban guns. LOL.
His support for Bernie only makes sense when it comes down to he doesn't think kids should go 100k in debt to go to college.
I get it but he doesn't get that it' the liberal policies that are making things so expensive. In fact it's the government once again, that makes everything more expensive.
No he doesn't understand history or economics and he's the first to admit that you shouldn't listen to him on such matters. If I had 3 hrs alone on a podcast with him I could sort him out for sure.

True but in his case he was selected because he has 9 million followers on you tube and who knows how many downloads on the apple platform.
If I had a podcast and someone wanted to throw 100 mil at me, it would be signed before the contract hit the desk.. My next episode would be broadcast from my new yacht on location in Key west. My all female topless crew would be serving me and guest drinks and joints while we solve the worlds problems.

wait, don't think for a moment I've got all this strength i'm conveying that we should all be exercising...i try it out sometimes, it's tough to do when I witness others pick their noses with their bare hands then put their mask back on...

i'd do it too if only to get me outta the class of booger-eaters...

but this can't be the complete lump sum of what this country has come to represent?
we've always had the nose-pickers but the pocket pickers are getting to be a bit too much

someone tell me which advertisers are now going to raise their prices a bit more than all the others?

please do, otherwise i've now gotta do some work, to figure that out on my own...because they've gotta raise their prices to pay the 'now higher' ad prices...and I don't wanna participate

etc...

really, all i'm doing is describing what's now going to happen, in a different way, on a different plane

LOL

to me it's all quite obvious and it only leads to where capital gets congealed into another corner, never to see the light of day again...and in a nut-shell, that's really US, all of US, blah blah, the velocity goes down as it gets sucked up out of circulation

ad nauseum...the problem, the solution, another hero is made

Yes, most young people SHOULD NOT BE in college.

And yes, universities are grossly overpriced. My semester tuition at a SUNY branch was about $900 a semester, including fees.

But, you know what? Pickup trucks are overpriced, too. And it's not fair to those (few) people who need them.

The solution is NOT for the government to invalidate loans on pickup trucks, or give every driver who wants one, a free F-150.

The solution is to let fools suffer the consequences; and for family and parents to educate young people on wise purchases. Trucks or education...as Mike Rowe has pointed out, many unglamorous trade and craft jobs go unfilled, while there's little room for Liberal-Arts-Degree koledge grads.

And you heard it here first. But yeah, my life goes on never having listened to him or many others. Saw a front page headline yesterday on one of the New York rags about Howie Stern offering his opinion like it matters.

Actually guys, I thought this was in the investment sub forum.
What I've been thinking if late is how soulless and crushing it must be to do a syndicate opinion on President DJT. They flood the county rag. How does someone get satisfaction from writing he said to drink bleach?

Seriously? How is a soso intellect chatting to people worth 100m? This sounds like those muppets that paid a fortune for yahoo then promptly hit the tech bust wall. Bye bye Spotify!

I like Rogan. I like the way he interviews people, no script, no notes, mostly no agenda. It’s like a guy sitting down with another guy, or a woman, or multiple guys, whatever and just talking about whatever subject is on the menu, or relevant according to his guest’s occupation or life experience. He offers enormously more content, information and entertainment-wise, than Howard Stern or Larry King or a Barbara Walters type ever did and he’s very interesting. Many times, when I watch him, he’s asking incredibly pertinent and intelligent, probing questions of his guests. He often gets down to the meat of the matter on subject they are discussing.

Sometimes he’s stupid, but not too often. He’s just a guy with a decent brain doing great interviews, often about fascinating subjects. Holy hell, I’ve even seen him with a freaking joint in his hand while interviewing people. Sometimes, he’s an asshole! He had Stephen Crowder on once and he was all lit up, talking to Crowder, high as hell, because Crowder is anti-marijuana. I think Crowder handled himself really well during the whole interview, though. The point is, you’re not going to see anybody else just doing raw, person to person, what’s really in your head, interviewing and chatting/jabbering like you do with Rogan.

I don’t know that he’s selling out. He says his show will be free on Spotify. I know I’ve heard of Spotify, but I don’t know anything about it, to tell the truth. But, I watched Patrick Ben David, another decent interviewer, talk about the deal, last night and he said Rogan got a hundred million from Spotify and Spotify gained like three billion in value in 48 hours.

Plus, they stole away one of YouTube’s heavy hitters. Google is getting a little too big, anyway, punishing content and de-monitizing people and shadow-banning. Maybe something like this will put a small damper on their expression of power over content producers. Feeling like they can just crush you, or make you irrelevant if you don’t toe the leftist/PC line. Maybe Spotify will be more of the same. Maybe they will be different.

If you use the Brave browser you don't get the commercials on yootube. I think part of the reason Rogan is going to spotify is due to Yootubes censorious BS.
What OS allows Brave?

Both Ubuntu Linux and OSX don't allow it to load. I had it on the Mac - probably still do. Worked two weeks; I migrated bookmarks over; and then, with one of those unasked-for updates, it stopped working.

You know why that guy founded Brave, right? He was the head of Mozilla who, in his own time, with his own money, gave a small amount to the group doing the referendum banning queer marriage.

That was enough to get him fired, blacklisted...and have his app and browser crash every time there's an update.

I feel for him, but I'm not going to fight his wars on my computer forever. The tech dweebs are both demented and autistic - and that's all I need to know. Eventually, as I get older, I'll go dark; I'm partly there now; but for now, I understand the rules. Or that there are no rules.

If you use Ewe Toob, you don't get information - only propaganda, and often untrue propaganda.

I see little reason to watch Ewe Toob unless I'm looking for puppy videos.
