My Thoughts: I generally can’t stand this guy but he was a little more subdued compared to previous appearances. I feel like in the past he was trying too hard to be funny or be accepted by Joe Rogan, but in this episode he came off as being more genuine, which made the episode more enjoyable to listen to as someone who went into it with low expectations.
