The other night, actress-turned-social-activist Alyssa Milano went on a bit of a tangent on Twitter. A lot of it was political stuff about Trump and fascism and all that other woke goodness she’s been banging on about for years – forgive me for not including those parts in the blog.
At one point in the middle of her rant though, she Tweeted this:
We live in a world WHERE JOE ROGAN’s PODCAST HAS TRIPLE THE LISTENERS AS MINE!! Dear god.
— Alyssa Milano (@Alyssa_Milano) July 30, 2020
Wait, what? Who even knew that Alyssa Milano had a podcast? The craziest part about that Tweet though is that Alyssa thinks that Joe Rogan only has triple the listeners she has when it’s probably more like 300x the listeners.
In fact Alyssa Milano’s podcast ranks at #143 (not overall but in the politics section), while Rogan has the #1 podcast in the world. How deluded do you have to be to think your podcast that ranks #143 in just the politics section is only 3x smaller than the world’s #1 podcast?
Not to mention Rogan has been doing JRE for 11 years, Alyssa has been doing her podcast ‘Sorry Not Sorry’ for like 7 minutes. Rogan talks with some of the most interesting people in the world about an endless variety of topics, Alyssa just whines about Donald Trump every week.
Seems like a clear case of the green-eyed monster to me. Here’s the general reaction online:
Wow I can’t believe an interesting podcast has more listeners than the Screechy McWhinesalot Cry-About-Trump Power Hour.

Joe Rogan’s podcast is so popular because people can relate to him and have a decent conversation. You’re so far to the left that you just seen batshit crazy…

Why is this bad? I like you. I’m a liberal. I also love rogans podcast. It’s the best out there, to my mind. Sam Harris is second. Does that make me wrong somehow??

Perhaps if you spoke more about your crocheting skills it could draw in listeners. 🤷♂️ pic.twitter.com/AZdd7LrXvF

Because Joe Rogan is a fairly ferocious critical thinker, ravenously intellectually curious, and a wonderful interviewer who can make a three hour conversation worth listening to…
…and, well, you see where this is going, right?

You have a podcast?

Jesus you have no self awareness whatsoever.

“He has 300 or 3000 views for every one view I get” is not “triple”.
He has podcasts that have been viewed over 30 million times on YouTube.

The ratio underneath her Tweet really is something, but I guess that’s what happens when no one close to you ever tells you the truth and just tell you how great you are all the time. You end up wondering how the world’s #1 podcast could possibly have ‘3x’ the audience that your shitty podcast does.
