Joe Rogan can not be fit into one box. He is a stand-up comedian and UFC commentator, among other roles. However, what he is currently most known for is his podcast "The Joe Rogan Experience," which is found exclusively on Spotify.

Rogan interviews many interesting individuals on this podcast, some of whom he has come under fire for giving a platform. As recently as the beginning of this year, he came under massive fire for hosting a guest who purportedly spread dangerous misinformation on his channel.

This led to icon musician Neil Young and Joni Mitchell leaving the platform until Spotify removed the podcast. Licensed at a $100 million deal, Spotify chose to keep the podcaster on their streaming service.

The podcast continues with Rogan and his guests unafraid to voice their opinions, even if deemed dangerous or contentious. Therefore, it is no surprise that the comedian has 56 quotes unapologetically expressing his views on success, compassion, comedy, and more.
