Jason Silva: How do we get through this? Well, I.. I mean I guess I’m just trying to make a contribution.
Joe Rogan: Well, you’re definitely doing that.
Jason Silva: I’m putting forth mimetic content to inspire people. I think we do it–
Joe Rogan: Mimetic content. I’ve never used that word or expression. It’s beautiful.
Jason Silva: Yeah. Mimetic. Coz I love the word “meme”.
Joe Rogan: I do, too.
Jason Silva: Yeah. And I think that um.. I don’t know.. I mean Timothy Leary, when he used to call himself a stand up philosopher or a performing philosopher, this idea of embracing pop culture and competing in the market place of ideas.
So if you think that the market place of ideas could lead us astray, then contribute better ideas.
Joe Rogan: Right.
Jason Silva: I mean you’re doing it. You have 600 thousand minds connected to your Twitter account.
Joe Rogan: Yeah.
Jason Silva: That’s.. I mean that’s wonderful opportunity.
Joe Rogan: It’s fun.
Jason Silva: For you to have fun but also, man, lyou can create waves of positive change.
Joe Rogan: Yeah. You’d be a… one of the things that’s amazing is how nice people are in Twitter to me.
Jason Silva: Dude
Joe Rogan: So nice.
Jason Silva: Without a cable, you are tuned in to 600 thousand minds.
Joe Rogan: Yeah. It’s pretty amazing. It’s an amazing time. And how many people are watching this.
It’s some couple thousand shit. (laughs) Ultimately this will be on the iTunes, like, somewhere around half a million.
Jason Silva: Well, that’d be fun.
Joe Rogan: Yeah. It’s all very different points of distribution. We have it on Ustream. We put it in Vimeo.
Jason Silva: Vimeo’s the bomb.
Joe Rogan: Vimeo is great. Beautiful video quality. And we put long ones in there. No problems. They have available on Ustream.
And so we have it.. and also in mp3 form. We’re making it as easy as possible. This is my favorite thing to do.
Jason Silva: You’re a podcast pioneer.
Joe Rogan: No, I’m not. How dare you.
Jason Silva: People love, they love your style. And it’s amazing because um.. you guys talk about so many different things but um..
Just as many people that have seen my videos and like, “Oh my God! You gotta do something at TED.” Like people watch the videos and like, “Oh my God, dude. Joe Rogan needs to see this.”
Joe Rogan: That’s funny. That’s a symptom of the Kim Kardashian era. (laughs) I’m right there. I’m part of the problem.
Jason Silva: Well, I think.. I think you’re doing great. I’m a big fan.
Joe Rogan: No, I’m just kidding, man. John Dvorak. You know who that guy is? John C. Dvorak. You know who that guy is, Brian, right?
Brian Redban: Oh yeah, I know who he is.
Joe Rogan: He told me that I have to get Adam Curry on the podcast. Adam Curry is the real pod-father. He’s the guy who really created
Brian Redban: He’s been doing it for a while.
Jason Silva: Oh wow.
Joe Rogan: He’s the creator, right? Didn’t he help figure out how to make podcasts?
Brian Redban: I don’t know if he’s the creator. I don’t know. I think he’s one of the original members.
Joe Rogan: I feel like he had something to do with.. I don’t know why I’m saying this. I feel like I read that he had something to do with the actually coding of the first podcast.
It might not be true. Either way, he’s like, one of the original. That guy is from Tech TV, right? John Dvorak.
Brian Redban: John Dvorak, yes. He used to be in Tech TV. Now he still works with
Joe Rogan: He’s a technology compass, right? I’ve seen a bunch of his stuff.
Jason Silva: The podcast allows the technology to actually get out of the way. And what it does is it frees your mind. That’s why the technology is psychedelic.
