Popular podcast host Joe Rogan and controversial conspiracy theorist Alex Jones have finally settled their bizarre feud, thanks to a wacky, five-hour-long podcast.
Rogan invited Jones back onto his podcast on February 27, after the two had a humorous falling out in a previous episode in February of 2017 – after which Jones claimed that “Jesus told me to destroy Joe Rogan.”
Despite their comical feud, the two apparently made amends in private over the phone, with Rogan inviting Jones on the podcast once more as a sign of good faith.
Their second episode predictably included a slew of rants from Jones about aliens, Hillary Clinton, and human-pig hybrids – and even featured a viral clip of Jones claiming that he is “kind of retarded.”
Rogan even walked Jones through a public apology for his comments on the tragic Sandy Hook shooting, which he claimed was an engineered operation by gun control advocacy groups.

Jones likewise admitted that he’d gone a bit too deep down the conspiracy theory rabbit hole as of late, to the point where he was paranoid that every major event were a government-operated plot.
Rogan himself appeared to take their conversation quite lightly, despite Jones previously accusing him of being a “power source” used by Silicon Valley, among other inane allegations.
While Rogan had speculated that Jones had been suffering from mental health problems following their first episode, it looks like the two have finally made up – not excluding a few eye-rolling hijinks along the way.
