Hart opened up the conversation by stating that social media has warped people’s perception about how others think of them. “Social media has mindf**ked people into thinking the comments below a post are what the world must be feeling and thinking about you,” he said.

The comedian followed up by stating that users have become obsessed with the negatives. “We spread the negative. As people, we’ve fallen in love with bad information and bad conversation. We’re intrigued by it.”

Rogan agreed, but said that he believed it’s a part of human instinct. “Well, it’s a natural human instinct, because those are the things that can kill you. From the days when we were living in small villages, worrying about animals attacking us. You had to always be worried about negative.”

The UFC commentator then argued that our survival instinct has been filled by social media. “Unfortunately, that human instinct has carried over. Our human reward system has been hijacked by social media. This new thing we’re not prepared for.”

While Hart was critical of social media, he also admitted it has benefits as well, but told viewers to “understand who you are” first. The comedian re-stated the importance of individuals knowing their own positives and flaws before letting others try to define them.

The JRE Podcast is one of the most followed shows in the world, with over 8.4 million subscribers on YouTube alone. However in May, Rogan announced that he is moving the program to Spotify exclusively by the end of 2020.

Regardless of where it’s hosted, viewers will no doubt flock to listen to it. The UFC commentator continues to interview a wide variety of guests from Elon Musk to famous actors, giving viewers an insight into the world’s most fascinating people.


Sykkuno reveals new plans after leaving OfflineTV house

Sykkuno opened up about leaving the OfflineTV house and revealed he plans to move back in with family, but will stick around the Los Angeles area.

Sykkuno has only been a confirmed member of the OfflineTV house since August, but he’s already exploded in popularity. He deserves all the credit, though, since his content and input in collaborated streams has been thoroughly enjoyable.

It’s been a blast having him on board. However, Sykkuno ultimately decided not to stick around, and in one of his latest streams, he shared some details on what he’s planning to do next.

Sykkuno Leaving OfflineTV
Sykkuno has been streaming for a while, but he’s become immensely more popular in recent weeks.

“As most of you guys probably know, [I’m] moving soon,” he said. “So, I’m probably not going to be streaming for a couple of days after today obviously because there’s a lot of moving stuff going on.”

Initially, Sykkuno is planning to move back in with his family, but then he’d evaluate his options and decide what to do next. “I’m probably moving home for a bit, and then we’ll figure it out after that,” he said.

Sykkuno also said he would “probably” stay in Los Angeles in the long run but isn’t planning to buy a house. “That’s a little too expensive for me,” he said. “I don’t think that’s quite happening.”

Sykkuno Leaving OfflineTV
Sykkuno has been streaming Among Us on Twitch along with other popular streamers.

He described the move as a “bit of a hassle” but seemed excited about the future. He’s also adamant about not wanting to live alone. “I don’t want to live alone… I feel like it’s tough,” he said.

This hilariously opened the door for one fan to try and make an ambitious deal. “Pay for my rent, and I’ll live with you,” wrote the fan.

Sykkuno pondered for a moment and then jokingly pitched a counter-offer. “If you pay for my rent, I’ll there too, I suppose,” he said, laughing. “Thank you for the offer.”

Sykkuno didn’t mention anything else beyond that. However, if his meteoric rise continues to grow, the opportunities will be endless.

It comes after other OfflineTV members Scarra and Toast said that the OffliveTV house could be disbanding shortly.

“We can’t have a house that each of us have wives, husbands, our kids, and our pets living in once place,” Toast said in a recent stream.

It seems like Sykkuno’s fans will have his back no matter what he decides though. They’ve become a large and dedicated community in their own right.
