Rogan recently took to Instagram in a bid to remind his fan about the humble beginnings of the now-beloved podcast. The legend goes that Joe Rogan first met an associate in Brian Redban way back in 2003 after having witnessed the latter’s video editing.

As far as media moguls and experts are concerned, the recommended length of podcasts should be no longer than 22 minutes. This was yet another rule that Rogan chose to ignore, creating episodes going well over the hour mark.

The Joe Rogan Experience is not necessarily the best model that aspiring podcasters should follow; however, it certainly found success.
