Podcast: The Joe Rogan Experience
Guest: Duncan Trussell
There is no two ways about it. Joe Rogan is tear jerkingly funny. If you haven't listened to one of his interviews where the hell have you been?? I live in London and tend to listen to podcasts on the underground. You know when it's a great one when you are literally laughing out loud! I can tell you..that DOES NOT happen on the underground. People don't make eye contact with one another, let alone laugh! Joe is a funny guy. He is a comedian, entrepreneur, podcaster and UFC commentator.
In this interview with his old friend Duncan Trussell (actor and stand-up comic) they cover subjects from why a sedentary life sat at a desk can make you forget how simply being outdoors is special. They touch on the universe, how the Egyptians would have lived and interacted with one another, how the great thinkers like Newton, Eddison and Gallaleo would respond to this digital age we find ourselves in. PLUS why there are these great thinkers in history and now, but alongside there are always complete idiots in the world. It's a fascinating gulf In cognitive capability that I myself have questioned.
My highlight was when Duncan attempts to quantify the value of your time, to which Joe says 'the key to life is to value your time. The key is to try as much as you can to direct it towards what you love doing and the people you love being with. Recognise what you have to compromise for a pay check or by playing it safe. You are wasting your time. Time is your most valuable asset'
