Jimmy Dore on Joe Rogan

Pretty cool show featuring Jimmy Dore on Joe Rogan.

Jimmy mentioned it on his live show today and I just got done watching it.

I think this is a pretty impressive show, and Jimmy might have earned himself a bunch of new fans. It also sounds like they want to do some work together in the future. Super cool.

Love to hear your thoughts on the show...

1:35:00 - 1:39:00 is pretty amazing to get kicked out to 3/4 of a million people.

@Wink

Had no idea he had been so sick. It was a very good interview of Jimmy Dore. I also never heard of Joe Rogan before. I only found it because Caitlin Johnstone left a link to it on Twitter. It is definitely worth a listen.

in my neck of the woods - I bump into him maybe once or twice a year - that looks and sounds Exactly like Joe Rogan. For real. I've known the guy for 14, 15 years, we just travel in
@dkmich
different circles. So, when the video started I asked myself, wait a second... is that so-and-so? Nope, it ain't. But dead ringer. I had never heard of Joe Rogan before the video neither. Did a great job! Jimmy, of course, just one of a handful or so telling it like it is.

and he's super thoughtful, to boot.

Coming from a manly man, I think he is potentially a strong ally to take on corporate. We need that, as a people. We got to get the Joe Rogans and the Jimmy Dores talking. As soon as that happens we'll get some traction.

This is a pretty exciting hook up, IMO. I have a lot of friends who listen to Joe Rogan, and while they're sympathetic to my points of view, and we have a similar speaking relationship as this, I don't think it resonates, cuz it's just us talking, two poor schmucks.

These two? They've got strong followings. They've got some anti-establishment juice. It's different to see these two talk about real shit than it is for us to do it in person.

Now that this bubble has been popped, I think my discussions with them are going to be far more productive and we will have greater solidarity.

This is what solidarity looks like, IMO.

Which Jimmy actually mentions. Less structured perhaps, but two hours of informed conversation about interesting shit that matters. And that was a very righteous Dore rant at 1:35-1:40.

Very good point at about one hour in that the media helped Joe Mc Carthy and are still helping the Pro War Russia Russia hysteria by branding genuine anti-war leftists or establishment critics as Putin supporters.

about Rogan is he's not afraid to re-examine his positions on issues if you can prove your point rationally/logically. When him and Jimmy discuss that about Jimmy's view going back and forth on gun control. Also, when Joe starts in on some bullshit and Jimmy goes wait, wait and breaks it down, joe's look is kinda, huh, hadn't looked at it like that.
And not just in this interview,Rogan always seems willing to learn. Which is cool.

But I'll finish the last hour.
Good stuff.
