Popular podcast host Joe Rogan delved into why the world is going through a “wake-up call” amid the ongoing global crisis, when talking with Joey Diaz during an episode of the JRE.

With entire countries entering lockdown, Rogan has delved into why people should value their health above all (both now and moving forward).

Amid discussing everything from current affairs to a world with stand-up comedy, both Rogan and Diaz touched on the implications of the ongoing global health threat during Episode 1448 of the Joe Rogan Experience.

Rogan delved into a plethora of topics during his podcast, revolving largely around the current health crisis.

Joe Rogan on “greed”

After expert epidemiologist, Michael Osterholm, provided an eye-opening prediction on fatality rates, Rogan’s interest has seemingly spiked, as he continues to broach the topic with his podcast’s guests.

During the podcast, Rogan’s fellow stand-up comedian hypothesized that the current health situation is acting as a “reset button” for society. “For me this is like a higher power letting us know… We just got greedy, man — the greed got too much.”

Joe agreed with Diaz’ point relating to the fact that the human race got “overzealous,” before going on to explain how the majority of society isn’t “humbled enough” to the threats of nature, when specifically referring to California residents.

The world is getting a wake-up call…

“I think this is a wake-up call for the whole country – the whole world — and we’re vulnerable,” Rogan admitted.

“It’s also a wake-up call – and can’t say this to enough people – take care of your health, please. It is the one defense for this, that seems to be agreed upon by almost everyone.”

Rogan then went on to outline the plethora of actions people can take to bolster their immune system, from adopting basic regimes to utilizing vitamin-based supplements.

“Your immune system is something that you can work on. You know, you can work on it by cleaning up your diet; you can work on it with regular exercise; you can work on it with regular sleep.”

As a take-home message, the YouTuber then stated: “You can use this as like: ‘Okay, I’m alive, now this is a wake-up call, I’m so glad this didn’t happen to me (I didn’t get wrecked by this) — I’m going to get my life in order’… And this is a good time to get your health in-line.”

Despite Rogan’s doubts regarding America’s strategy to tackle the global crisis, the podcast host appears hopeful that people won’t take for granted what they once did, by valuing their only known defense mechanism — which starts with improving their health.


NELK Boys trolled Khabib and got Dana White drunk ahead of UFC 254

The NELK Boys were invited to Fight Island in Abu Dhabi ahead of UFC 254 and it didn’t take long before they had trolled Pay Per View headliner Khabib Nurmagomedov along with UFC President Dana White.

The NELK Boys are known for their antics so Dana White was well aware of what he was getting into by inviting them to Fight Island. Abu Dhabi served as host to a huge slate of UFC events throughout the course of September and October, closing out the latest stint with UFC 254.

The October 24 PPV made waves due to undefeated Nurmagomedov’s shock retirement after his 29th consecutive win. However, the NELK Boys made waves in their own way with a brand-new video.

Up to their usual antics, the crew played pranks on each other while mixing it up with UFC fighters. Outside of their shoey with Aussie heavyweight Tai Tuivasa, the NELK Boys trolled The Eagle and even got Dana White drunk.

In a rare interaction with Khabib prior to what would be his final fight, they pranked him by asking for oddly specific MMA advice. “What is the most important aspect of fighting for any beginner fighter to focus on?” Kyle Forgeard asked.

Before Khabib could even answer, the plot thickened. Forgeard joked that the reason behind his interest in MMA is to fight the BMF Champ Jorge Masvidal after he slept with his girlfriend. “How old are you?” Khabib responded, going along with the joke. 

Realizing that he’s too old to start training, he had another solution in mind. “I think you have to buy [a] dog.” With a dog by his side, that might be Forgeard’s only chance, according to Khabib.

Next on the itinerary was to get the UFC President completely wasted. While they downed a few shots at the very beginning of the day, the real party came later that night. “I’ve got weigh-ins at 11 AM tomorrow,” White joked before taking another shot.

“Our goal is for Dana to not make it to the weigh-ins,” Forgeard said. Ultimately, that didn’t quite come to fruition but it’s clear they got him rather drunk. “We did like eight or 12 [shots] right in a row.”

The weigh-ins went off without a hitch and so too did the PPV event the following day. It was a short-lived trip for the NELK Boys on Fight Island, though it was one that proved all too valuable for some content.

This particular video ended with a teaser of what’s to come for the content creating crew too; it appears as though a call with the United States President is in store, courtesy of Dana White.
