Skip to comments.Joe Rogan World Vs. NPR World

Yesterday when I drove up to the country to visit my mother, I listened to NPR until I couldnt take it anymore. There was a story about black Mormons. Normally I would have found that compelling, given my interest in religion. The Mormon religion used to be formally racist, but changed its teaching. What is it like to live as a black Mormon? Thats a story that interests me. Or normally would, but I swear, I turned off the radio. Why?
It had nothing to do with the black Mormons. It had to do with NPR. I thought: theyre only interested in Mormons so they can find some new way to talk about American racism.
It feels like every time I get in the car and turn on the radio, I dont have to wait long before I hear a story that highlights in some new way what a racist country America is, or how hard illegal immigrants have it in America, or how put-upon sexual minorities are, and so forth.
I switched over to Spotify to listen to Joe Rogans September 17 podcast episode with Douglas Murray, on the advice of a friend. It was excellent! Murray is more conservative than Rogan, but still, hes a gay secular Briton, and Rogan is a pro-drug, pro-gay marriage, comedian and MMA commentator who has some conservative beliefs (or at least instincts), but who, above all, seems curious about the world.

President Trump should defund NPR on November 4!
Chris Plante calls it National Panhandler Radio
It is a book that I give to a lot of my latte-liberal friends. They really don't like the message, but it does make them think, at least the ones that are capable of thinking.
Black Mormons ride around on stolen bikes
LOL I was just thinking the same thing, and you beat me to the punch
He would get more votes if he did it today.
Ping for later, thanks for posting
I quit hearing NPR in the 00s. Mostly tuned into PRI’s THis American LIfe and Garrison Kellior. But Kellior began to attack Republicans, he later was accused of harrasment and fired. And I didn’t like NPR as it was biased.
JOe ROgan I found on Newsradio, Phil Hartman’s sitcom, and learned he was stand up comedian. Later he hosted Fear Factor and did UFC commentating. Because of the popularity of Alex Jones on his podcast began watching it. He certainly made a huge mistake going to Spotify.
Interesting, I’ll check that book out.
