What’s the difference between tackling NFL GOAT Tom Brady and hunting down a wild buck? The two could not be farther apart. But MMA pundit Joe Rogan is certain that bow hunters have similar feelings while taking down their prey.

In episode #2100 Rogan sat down with bow hunter Cameron Hanes and outdoorsman and writer Steven Rinella. While sitting down with two men who have made careers out of being active in the wild, how could Rogan not discuss his love for hunting?

Tom Brady has never officially been associated with bow hunting on the record. But of course, he is a legend in the NFL world, and tackling him is no easy feat. Neither is seeing a massive rare deer in the wild while on the hunt. Rinella pointed out how getting into the NFL and then meeting Tom Brady right before competing against him could be an interesting state of affairs.

“. . . you’re like, hey tight, let me get his interview . . .” joked Rinella, “let me get his autograph, then I’ll come back and I’ll tackle him.” The three laughed it off and once the Brady banter had a little bit of a break, Rogan pointed the whole bow-hunting situation.

“But isn’t that also the case with bow hunters?” the MMA guru asked. “Where, like, you’ve been hunting your whole life hoping to see a 200-inch buck. And then one day, you’re in the mountains and this mule deer steps out. You’re like this is it? . . . This is a real one. I can make this happen. You’re like, everything is just full panic.”

It’s an interesting analogy. Certainly dreaming of finding an animal of that size and stature out in the wild out of the blue would surprise anyone at any time. So would actually tackling Brady after watching his career for so long. The comparison sure is odd but it makes sense nonetheless. What makes more sense is Rogan not giving himself the credit for being the Godfather of podcasting.

Rogan honors the “pod-father”

In a previous episode, Joe Rogan was joined yet again by Hanes, who went ahead and gave the UFC color commentator his props for the progress that the Joe Rogan Experience has made. He, being the humble podcaster that he is did not take the credit for being the best out there. In fact, he had a big name in his mind already.

According to Rogan, the real “pod-father” of the podcasting world is Adam Curry, who has been at it for far longer than Rogan. Curry and his interesting takes can be found all over the internet and it’s the sort of content Rogan’s fans would just adore. So it only makes sense for the MMA pundit to hand Curry his flowers for establishing podcasting in an industry that wasn’t yet popular. Do you agree with Rogan?
