A former host of the reality competition series “Fear Factor” and an actor who played an electrician on the NBC comedy series “NewsRadio,” Mr. Rogan has built an expansive following of mostly men through his podcast, appealing particularly to disaffected white men, many of whom have proudly labeled themselves as “Bernie Bros.”
This seems wrong to me. The audience for Rogan’s show is politically nihilist and socially conservative. He gets a lot of mainstream pop culture celebrities to go on his podcast, but when he gets political guests it’s mainly crazies like Alex Jones and Milo or Intellectual Dark Web dweebs like Ben Shapiro and Bari Weiss. Say what you will about “Bernie Bros”, but that’s not their kinda people.
