Rogan is past saving at this point. The man has turned into everything he hated.His fanbase have been begging Kanye to come on for years so they can laugh at the ramblibgs of a mentally ill man. Its kind of sick.
I like most of the science ones where he doesn't ruin it by talking too muchI like listening to his space ones as he asks questions in a simple format I can understand. Besides that he's useless.
This is true apparently, if you can believe ABC newsThe rambling interview with Kanye (a clearly unwell man who can be difficult to listen to even on his albums and who Rogan fans were clamouring for as a guest so they could laugh at him) was bad enough.
Now thanks to Rogan Spotify have once more provided a platform to the scumbag Alex Jones, a man they deplatformed back in 2018. Rogan tries to fact-check Jones, which with grim inevitability leads to Rogan saying vaccines gave kids in Africa Polio. Oh and we get to hear Jones spouting his predictable anti-Biden, pro-Trump conspiracy bullshit days before the election.
This fecking guy.
He's had kidnappers and killers on before. Far worse people than Alex Jones have been on there and nobody really gave a shit.How can he continue to have Alex Jones on after how he treated the parents of the Sandy Hook victims? This isn't a matter of hearing 'both sides' or anything like that. Jones is a piece of shit that should not be given air time by anyone.
Nope.This is true apparently, if you can believe ABC news
Anyway this is the article Rogan quotes on air
edit: seems it is true its been widely reported
Yeah I know what happened, but thanksNope.
When given the polio vaccine, a weakened version of the virus builds up in the kids' guts. That then gets excreted. If there is poor sanitation and lack of general immunity in the area then the people who share the same facilities as the kids can get the virus. If the population is extremely under-immunized then the virus can continue for a long time, undergoing more genetic changes as it does so. Which can sometimes lead to a strain that causes paralysis. The kids who had previously been vaccinated then get this strain via community transmission, months after they were initially given the vaccine. They do not get it from the vaccine and it does not occur at all if a population is fully vaccinated. Something the WHO make clear.
In other words, the learning point from this story is that a lack of widespread dispersal of a vaccine can be dangerous. An important message at a time when we're all waiting on a vaccine for Covid. But exactly the opposite of the anti-vaxxer message Rogan and Jones put out with their "vaccines gave the children polio" bullshit.
Yeah, I took no pleasure in listening to him. I just felt sorry for him. He's clearly mentally ill.
I agree. He should be treated for what can be an extremely serious condition. Instead people are enabling him.Charlemagne was the only one able to interview Kanye properly . He tried his best to talk sense into him years ago and everyone should have let Kanye be after that . He is clearly unwell and shouldn't be anywhere near the spotlight any more
He's a lunatic but I find him entertaining. I can see why people have no time for him though with all the dangerous nonsense he spreads. The BBC interview where Andrew Neill calls him an idiot pissing himself laughing at him was great.I love Alex Jones. He's funny and i'm not stupid enough to believe anything he says.
He has Glenn Greenwald on today who's interesting and a lot less objectionable. Its an easier recommendation for the caf
The face of Spotify ladies and gentlemen.
