The Joe Rogan Experience disproportionately hosts men

Over 91% of the guest appearances on one of Apple’s most popular podcasts are made by men

The Joe Rogan Experience, a podcast hosted by comedian Joe Rogan, is consistently topping the charts in terms of popularity. It was the second most downloaded show on Apple Podcasts in both 2017 and 2018, consistently tops the popularity charts on podcast app Stitcher, and the episodes reach over 5 million subscribers on Rogan's YouTube channel.

The format is simple enough: a freewheeling, hours-long conversation between Rogan and his guests. As Justin Peters explained on Slate:

I have listened to a lot of Rogan episodes over the past few months in order to try to understand why the show is so popular. It is a bizarro Fresh Air, a rambling, profane interview program in which the host is often high, loves to talk about cage fighting—Rogan has long worked as a UFC commentator—and never lets his guests go home. (Episodes can stretch past three hours.) His interviewees are an esoteric lot spanning Rogan’s wide range of interests: stand-up comedy, mixed martial arts, evolutionary psychology, alternative medicine, music, acting, business, and the excesses of leftist identity politics.

Rogan’s guests are also mostly men. Media Matters tracked guest appearances on 142 episodes of his podcast aired between June 26, 2018, and April 3, 2019, and found that out of 161 total guest appearances, only 14 were by women.

Methodology

Media Matters tracked guest appearances on The Joe Rogan Experience podcast and coded appearances by men and women in 142 episodes that aired between June 26, 2018, and April 3, 2019. The analysis focused on guest appearances as opposed to individuals, as some guests appeared more than one time during the time frame analyzed.

It's amazing that this is a tax exempt organization.

What’s the demographic of who listens to him?  I’d imagine that it’s mostly men. 

 

There are podcasts that have mostly women guests. What’s the issue?

Lol it’s crazy since Joe tells anyone that’ll listen that he’s a lefty. If you’re going to identify as one of these idiots then you better get in line and start living the way they tell you to live.

Not just stupid but dangerous.

They regularly attempt to boycott those who don't fall in line with their politics and the average person in society doesn't realize the influence that this organization has.

Same thing with Organizing for Action.

Shapiro was saying how sad they are to have people digging thru old broadcasts of people they oppose to maybe find something they kind of said off color to try and destroy them, while being hugely hypocritical themselves.

Here's an idea, they start their own podcast where 90% of the guests are women. Since there's such a strong demand for them it'll crush Joe's podcast and they can move onto other things.

There’s literally a podcast called the guys we fucked and it’s all women talking about being sluts and how that’s not a bad thing.

Sadly, I think Joe will apologize and say he never meant to offend anyone.

MightyMorphinPowerReptilians - why do they seem so eager to drive away normal people?

Because they really believe that the current structure of Western society is to perpetuate the privilege of the white heterosexual man.
