Do yourself a favor: Quit "leading" with the Joe Rogan podcast if people are just Yang Curious. You should be leading with these, instead:

Firing Line: pbs.org/wnet/firing-li…
The Hill:
There is nothing *wrong* with the Joe Rogan podcast, mind you. However, it should not really be the *first* thing you use to introduce Yang to people, at this point.

(1) A lot of people despise Joe Rogan. Some people have gone hyper-negative just MENTIONING his podcast.
(2) Yes, some people despise The Hill or CNN or PBS as left-leaning outlets or even "fake news." However, they are MORE LIKELY to be perceived as higher-profile than Andrew's initial podcast audiences (i.e. "taken seriously") even by their haters.
(3) They are much shorter. It is very hard to ask someone who is just curious to sit down for an hours-long podcast as their "first exposure." Think about it this way: If you asked someone about him and they handed you a copy of his book and told you to read it, would you?
(4) If they consume the shorter, higher-profile interviews, and they are still curious, THEN you can always hit them with H3, Rogan, Shapiro, Lessig, Freakonomics, Pod Save America, Humanist Report, WHATEVER YOU WANT at that point.

Just don't LEAD with LONG podcasts, anymore.
That's not to spit on any of the podcasters out there: THOSE ARE CRITICAL CULTURAL TOUCHSTONES of the #YangGang. They pack different information and show a different side of things. Still super important!!!

It just shouldn't be the first card we play from our hand to STRANGERS.
Long-time political operative,
