Joe Rogan has had some epic guests on his show. Elon Musk comes to mind, as well as Lance Armstrong. The podcast is known for having a totally diverse lineup. Rogan doesn’t focus on funny people, or celebrities on his show. He’ll have anyone on, as long as he can have an interesting conversation with them. 

The great thing about Rogan’s podcast is that he really has a conversation with his guests. His shows last as long as they need to, and some of them are over two hours long. Rogan enjoys his podcast. He doesn’t interview anyone just to get their name recognition. Everyone he has on the show is someone he wants to talk to. Which makes it impressive when guests are invited back multiple times.

Here are three of the fan favorites. All three of these people are from completely different backgrounds, and all three have been on The Joe Rogan Experience more than once.

If they’ve been on the show multiple times, it’s not just fans who love these guests. Rogan must love them too. 

Dr. Rhonda Patrick

She’s been on multiple times, and her success on the show is a testament to the diversity of Rogan’s guests. Dr. Patrick specializes in nutrition and fitness. She brings evidence-based advice to Rogan and his listeners.

She’s a fitness expert, but what fans love about her is her dedication to science. She’s not worried about not knowing the answers to questions. If Rogan asks her something she doesn’t know, she researches. Then, the next time she appears on his show, she’ll bring her findings.

Dr. Patrick also has her own podcast, called Found My Fitness

Graham Hancock 

Even though he’s known for comedy and MMA commentating, Rogan is actually a bit of an intellectual. Hancock is proof of that. The journalist has been on at least five episodes of the show. Hancock specializes in ancient civilizations, but that’s not all they talk about. Like most of Rogan’s guests, sometimes he and his host go off on tangents. 

Aside from the ancient worlds Hancock knows so well, Rogan and Hancock have discussed Ayahuasca, and the origins of man. It’s pretty deep for a podcast. 

Neil deGrasse Tyson

The man gets around. DeGrasse Tyson is probably one of the most popular scientists out there. In fact, we’d be hard-pressed to name any other astrophysicist. DeGrasse Tyson has appeared on popular television shows like The Big Bang Theory, but he’s not just a pop culture icon. DeGrasse Tyson is a real scientist. 

He got his start at the Hayden Planetarium in New York City. He’s a born and bred New Yorker, so the position was perfect for him. DeGrasse Tyson clearly loves educating the public about science, and his ability to explain space in simple terms is rare. 

DeGrasse Tyson is everyone’s first choice when they need a scientist, so naturally Rogan has had him on as a guest multiple times. Like with most of Rogan’s guests, they don’t always stay on topic. Obviously Rogan usually invites DeGrasse Tyson on to discuss space and science, but they often delve into the hypothetical.

Their conversations can even get philosophical. One of the most well-known conversations they’ve ever had was on the topic of infinity.

This is just a small sample of the great guests Rogan has had on his podcast. The Joe Rogan Experience is a fan favorite for a reason. It’s been on for years, and its staying power is a testament to the fact that Rogan did this thing right. It’s a podcast he would listen to, which is what fans love about it.
