Rogan revealed to his guests, Kim Congdon and Sara Weinshenk, that he had a Megalodon tooth at home. It belonged to his daughter. The podcaster was fascinated by the immense size of the fish that used to terrorize the oceans back in the pre-historic era.

“. . . they (Megalodon) were f*cking giant. And they were just eating everything.” Rogan said as they spoke about it and the Statham movie was brought up. “. . .if you watch the Jason Statham movie.

Rogan sounds pretty convinced about what many could term a horror film. Much like Jaws back in the day, The Meg follows a giant shark-like fish that could take entire ships apart if it wished. However, Jason Statham stands in its way with his sharp lines and sharper looks.

Plot-wise, it could only be so convincing. It’s a movie about a CGI fish and is not meant for more than entertainment. And if you’re like Rogan, you could certainly use some of his methods before watching the film. Both of his guests agreed that they could do the same for some extra fun. But what is it you ask? Well, they decided to sniff a bit of smelling salts.
