Joe Rogan Talks COVID, Gender, Big Pharma & More With Political Commentator Bill Maher

Both Rogan and Maher lamented the changes in the liberal landscape, citing "Wokeism" as a toxic ideology.

In episode 2029 of The Joe Rogan Experience, Joe Rogan hosted Bill Maher, a comedian and political commentator best known for his HBO show Real Time with Bill Maher. The two spent considerable time discussing their podcasts, the evolving landscape of liberal politics, and the state of free speech and social issues in America today. What stood out from the conversation was not just their shared love for podcasts as a medium for open dialogue but also their concern for the shift in liberal politics from a classical understanding of liberalism to what Maher calls "Wokeism."

Both Rogan and Maher lamented the changes in the liberal landscape, with Maher calling himself a '90s liberal and Rogan echoing the sentiment. They took issue with the recent trends in liberalism that have seemingly been hijacked by extreme leftism, particularly noting the stifling effect this has had on free speech and open dialogue. They also delved into the complexities surrounding race and equality in America, each offering their views on how society should strive for a colorblind future while still acknowledging the systemic issues that plague many minority communities.

Joe Rogan mentioned that he left California primarily due to disagreements with how the state was handling the COVID-19 pandemic. Rogan moved to Austin, Texas, citing California's lockdowns and his perception that they were ineffective and potentially harmful.
