It's hard to believe that even Joe Rogan could have predicted the trajectory his career has had over the years.
He started as a comedian who broke in through the popular sitcom NewsRadio back in the '90s, but the 2000s would see him transition from this role to reality show host before finding steady work as an MMA commentator.
Yet, recent years have seen him rise as the host of perhaps the world's most popular podcasts that feature lengthy discussions of anything from international politics to particle physics to the possibility of intelligent alien life.
And whether listeners agree with him or not, they're often impressed by the journey each of his extensive interviews takes them on. So impressed, in fact, that they want to give him an incredibly important role.
