Joe Rogan explains why he’s “100% convinced” aliens are among us

Podcaster Joe Rogan has revealed the fascinating stories that took confidence of his belief in extraterrestrial life on Earth from 60% to 100%, in episode #1534 of the Joe Rogan Experience with comedian Ron White.

Since Joe moved his podcast studio from hectic LA to Texas for a fresh start, the studio design of the classic brick walls and purple curtains has gone through a dramatic transformation.


The brand new Texas studio boasts some interesting red lighting, a tunnel-like shape, and some protruding black and red panels among other ornaments that give the new location a slightly futuristic feel.

It seems only fitting that the conversation about aliens would arise with the background looking like it had come straight out of a sci-fi movie. He began by broaching the bizarre topic with “when will the aliens land? I’ve been thinking the aliens are coming.”


“I’m convinced, I’m 100% convinced,” he said about the idea that aliens are “dancing among us,” but he “used to be 60%.” He continued by revealing that he “talked to people that have seen them. I talked to this one guy who was a pilot,” regarding his conversation with a man named Commander Fravor.

“He encountered this thing that they called the Tic-Tac UFO. This is an object that they tracked on radar that went from 60,000 feet to one foot above sea level in less than a second.”

The 2004 Tic-Tac UFO was named as such due to it’s white, round shape that resembled the mint of the same name. This particular sighting was actually recorded by the US Navy, with the authenticity of the tape confirmed by the Pentagon in 2019. Officials reportedly still do not know what the object was.


He described the experience of physicist Bob Lazar who worked on back-engineering a craft found by the government, saying he “right away knew that this was no technology that we had currently available.” The propulsion system Bob described in a documentary bore striking similarities to the system of the Tic-Tac UFO in 2004.

Bob even gave one of his “first interviews he’s given in a long f**king time” to Joe in a podcast from 2019, so he has first hand experience meeting several individuals that have brushed up with other-wordly technology.

While Joe joked that his belief in aliens had shot back down to 50% after their discussion, he put that down to the fact that he’s “always worried about things I wanna believe. If I wanna believe it I’m always skeptical.”


Perhaps this renewed discussion about UFO sightings and US government secrets on the podcast will cause more guests with alien-related experience to flock to Texas to share their stories with Joe.


Lando Norris forced to end Twitch stream by ‘angry’ F1 officials

Lando Norris might be a big-time Formula 1 driver, but in his spare time he loves throwing up the stream and talking to fans on Twitch — unfortunately, it seems the F1 officials don’t love it quite the same. 

In recent months, we’ve seen Lando grow his Twitch stream by playing Warzone with other top creators, mingling with the pros and putting in some genuinely great gameplay.


As well as that, he often likes to take his stream with him on race weekends, doing IRL broadcasts during his down time to speak with his fans and keep the content going.

With free practice during this weekend’s Eifel Grand Prix cancelled due to the weather conditions, Lando decided to throw up the stream with teammate Carlos Sainz and have a laugh — but it was cut short by team members who told him he had to turn the stream off.

Lando and his teammate Carlos thought a Twitch stream might help pass the time.

Just eight minutes into the broadcast, with Norris and Sainz having little else to do, someone comes into their room and lets the two know that “F1 are getting a bit unhappy” with the stream being up, much to the bemusement of the two racers.

“What?!” Lando asked, confused, before requesting to know specifically what was said. Carlos, meanwhile, is slightly less confrontational and simply suggests they goodbye to their fans before waving off with an “adios.”

Norris looks completely confused as to why F1 would be upset at the two of them streaming, probably because they didn’t have to practice anyway, so seems reluctant, but eventually says goodbye a couple of minutes later.


Of course, there’s no real way of knowing why F1 were getting unhappy with the McLaren drivers unless they come out with a specific statement regarding their concerns, but that’s unlikely to happen, especially during such a big race weekend.

However, someone in the background of the stream does go on to mention something regarding “broadcast rights,” so that may be the root of the trouble.

Lando and Carlos are currently 4th and 11th respectively in the F1 Drivers’ standings, while McLaren are third in the Constructors standings.
