Of all the people that Joe Rogan idolizes, it looks like Elon Musk is definitely on top of the list. The UFC color commentator can’t seem to stop talking about the Space X billionaire. It appears the interests of Musk seem to almost perfectly coincide with Rogan’s through a probabilistic play. The 54-year-old JRE host was ecstatic after the news reached him that Elon Musk had bought Twitter.

Talking about his awe and respect for the Tesla billionaire, Joe Rogan elaborated, Elon Musk is one of them. Elon Musk is a really nice guy. He’s like a genuine, really nice guy who’s trying to do the right thing. He’s a really nice guy.” 

He’s very unassuming, like for the smartest f****** guy in the world. He’s like really easy to talk to. And he’s interesting to talk to because like he’s got solutions for sh** and he’s trying to do them.

Not that they won’t be doing another podcast again, given how much Rogan respects and is always ready to entertain Musk’s ideas. After all, as Musk has made three appearances on the famed JRE, it’s safe to say that he’s coming back for more. 

The Space X and Tesla billionaire had one of his most controversial moments on the JRE. After he smoked cannabis on the show with Joe Rogan, Tesla’s shares plummeted, which was the most that the company went down during his ownership of it.
