What Joe Rogan Taught Me About Being A Broadcaster
Joe Rogan is a leading broadcaster in what has now become a global conversation.
Joe is not just a commentator and comedian, he is a kind of multi-disciplined purveyor of ideas.
It’s safe to say that without The Joe Rogan Show, London Real might not exist in its present form.
I learned so much from Joe Rogan but here are three lessons that are crucial to any career in internet broadcasting:
- Talk About What YOU Want To Hear
- There Is An Audience For Everyone
- Make Ideas Popular

1. Talk About What YOU Want To Hear
A big part of London Real has always been about starting conversations you won’t find anywhere else.
Rogan is arguably the guy that kick-started what is now a global movement dedicated to real talk about real people.
Joe understood what I was trying to do on London Real, talking about Ayahuasca and The Venus Project, going where the mainstream media has always been too scared to go.
Joe was the first guy to start doing this in a major way. It wasn’t just about goofing around, or the crazy stories. It was about reclaiming the dialogue, and without Joe I would never have had the courage to take the leap into broadcasting.

2. There Is An Audience For Everyone
Joe Rogan told us the story of his own move into internet broadcasting, and he said a big drive behind his show is the “abundance mentality.”
Joe told me that there is an audience for everyone. With billions of people in the world, there is no need to think of another internet entrepreneur as a competitor, because the chances are your unique experience will resonate with another group of people just like you.
Both Joe and I agreed that there can’t be too many internet broadcasters, so there is no excuse for resistance. Just get out there and broadcast yourself!

3. Make Good Ideas Popular
When Kelly Starrett was here, he talked very highly of Rogan. He said the big innovation of his show was his ability to communicate cutting edge ideas to an audience that might never be exposed to them otherwise.
Rogan curates obscure science and ancient philosophy and brings it together with psychedelics and mixed martial arts.
Without even trying to, Joe has impacted the culture and broken down barriers when it comes to the kinds of combinations of ideas and conversations we can now have.
It’s not enough to talk about cool stuff. You have reach out and take the audience by the scruff of the neck. You have to make those ideas translate into people’s lives.
London Real is does this, and we do so by following the lead of innovators like Joe.
