Midnight Mania: The Rogan Red Flag? JRE Deemed Major Turnoff

Welcome to Midnight Mania!

Joe Rogan is the most popular name in podcasting. The UFC color commentator has also grown increasingly controversial over the years, particularly since his high-profile and highly lucrative deal with Spotify. His willingness to host different politicians from across the aisle, as well as his hot takes about COVID-19, have only made him more divisive.

Still, the MMA community as a whole largely loves Joe Rogan, who has been a signature part of the UFC broadcast for an awful long time. Unfortunately, that opinion clashes with that of the average woman, according to a recent poll by Change (h/t NYPost). Per the poll, 55% of women deem that listening to Joe Rogan — one would assume meaning his podcast, The Joe Rogan Experience — is a red flag, meaning it would be a turnoff in a potential partner.

The poll asked just over one registered voters, men and women both, ages 18-34 about various beliefs, hobbies, and interest that could stand out as red or green flags. Rogan listenership didn’t take the top spot, but it’s not far off!
