With Joe Rogan, you never know where the conversation will lead. That’s what makes his 3-hour+ podcast a fun, unique, and at times exhilarating Vulcan mind meld experience.
Joe and I don’t see eye to eye on many an issue. But once again, I found him open minded and respectful, challenging me when appropriate but not unfair; and more than willing to explore new ideas without undue judgment.
After a 3 hour deep dive, I left his man cave studio grateful for the experience and opportunity. But it’s also my nature to rewind and second guess my responses. Why did I say that? You should have mentioned X, etc. I would have loved a do-over on a few questions, especially my defense of Chinese medicine and my scattered and less than thorough response to the ketosis question (which kicked up a stir from the low carb crowd). And I felt a bit out of my depth on certain things I know little about — like giant anthills, queen bee habits and the intricacies of desalination.
Joe knows how to laser in, and you have to understand that despite my experience as a podcaster, there is a distinct subconscious pressure that accompanies knowing what you say will be heard by a million people (10x the size of my audience) then over analyzed brick by brick on Reddit and Twitter.
That said, I feel good about the interview and I greatly appreciate Joe providing me a generous opportunity to converse on subjects I am passionate about with a juggernaut demographic (14 million downloads per month!) of people likely unfamiliar with my story.
Thanks again to Joe and his producer Jamie Vernon for an awesome experience.
I sincerely I hope you enjoy the listen and let me know how you think it went in the comments section below.
