My Favorite Podcast: The Joe Rogan Experience

Joe Rogan is a comedian, former MMA competitor, current MMA announcer but most people know him as the guy who hosted Fear Factor. Rogan’s podcast covers a myriad of topics in a level headed manner with politics being discussed in a moderate realistic way. There is humor that comes into the podcast as Rogan is a comedian so he hosts some of the top comedians in the world regularly which makes for a spectacular podcast.

Rogan also discusses some of the most interesting topics with people like that of Elon Musk. Musk did partake in smoking marijuana which Rogan is a fan of to say the least with a public outcry on social media and on television. Their conversations delved into whether we are living in a simulation formed by a higher intelligence as well as other topics.

MMA does come up from time to time as Rogan discusses big fights approaching and has current as well as former fighters as his guests regularly. Rogan’s podcast can last up to 3 to 4 hours so there is no generic topic as each guest has something new to offer. For those that enjoy really thinking about the world around them and have an array of interests this podcast is a must listen.

Why Your Business Should Think Of Creating a Weekly Podcast

Content marketing can be done in a variety of forms like that of articles, videos, and the most natural form of content the podcast. It is essential for businesses to leverage this form of content as not doing so can alienate a segment of the population the simply enjoys the content via podcast. The amount of engagement with a podcast can be immense especially if a custom hashtag is used to comment or ask questions about the topics being discussed. This can lead to weekly listeners and even help improve customer loyalty if they listen weekly. People often times listen to their favorite podcast on their commute or with a cup of coffee starting their day.

This does not mean to try to wing the podcast but rather write down some talking points to discuss with the others involved in the podcast. Sparking conversation about industry topics or even things in the news impacting business is wise. Making the company podcast one of the top podcasts in the industry can also establish a company as a thought leader in their specific niche. This allows a deep conversation on a specific topic and the depth of the topic being discussed would take thousands of words written to convey the same message.

If your company does not have a podcast start drafting some material for talking points. Do not get discouraged if there are not many listeners in the beginning as quality podcasts can catch the eye of consumers quite quickly. Start podcasting in the near future to expand the company’s marketing reach.

My favorite Humor Podcast is:

If you like humor, you probably love comedians like Jim Gaffigan and Brian Regan as much (or more) as I do.

So, in the spirit of good clean comedy, I present to you my choice for the top humorous podcast of 2018:

The Improv Broadway Podcast

I have known the founder, Zach Atherton, for several years. In person, he’s not always ‘on’. But he’s the most laid back witty person I know. He’ll be chatting with you, and he’ll slip in some real good zingers and it will take a minute for my brain to catch up with his wit. I love talking with, and listening to him.
