Here are some quick stats for The Joe Rogan Experience podcast including total number of episodes (JRE, JRE MMA Shows and Fight Companions), number of episodes per year, total length of all podcasts, total number of guests, guest gender ratio, most guest appearances, and most viewed episodes.
Total Number of JRE Podcast Episodes
Just over 1700 episodes have been recorded in the 10.5+ year existence of The Joe Rogan Experience. This number includes the regular JRE podcasts, JRE MMA Shows, Fight Companions, Fight Recaps/Breakdowns, Podcasts on a Plane/In a Car/In Paradise/In a Hotel Room, Joe Rogan Questions Everything, etc.
Number of JRE Episodes per Year
The quantity of JRE podcasts has steadily increased over the years reaching a peak of 221 episodes in 2019 while on pace for a similar number in 2020. As of late, Joe Rogan has consistently released 4 episodes per week with the occasional extra podcast or Fight Companion. Rogan has never taken much of a break from the podcast and shows no signs of slowing down.
Total Length of All JRE Podcasts
Unfortunately, quite a few early episodes are missing from the official PowerfulJRE YouTube channel making it impossible to accurately determine the total length of all JRE podcasts excluding sponsored ad reads.
For an approximate calculation, we multiplied the average episode length by the total number of episodes. The average episode length (without ads) from 2018 to present is 2hrs 31min 43sec. This equates to 4,314 hours of podcasts or about 180 days worth. Listening to every single episode of The Joe Rogan Experience non-stop would take nearly half a year. However, you could always listen to the podcast at 2x speed to cut that in half.
Total Number of JRE Guests & Gender Ratio
A total of 802 different people have appeared as podcast guests on The Joe Rogan Experience. As you can see, the vast majority of guests have been male, 89% vs 11% female. Two trans guests have also made appearances on the JRE.
Most JRE Guest Appearances
Around one third of all guests on The Joe Rogan Experience podcast have appeared multiple times with several of Joe Rogan’s closest friends making dozens of appearances each. Check out the searchable and sortable list of JRE appearances above.
The person with the most JRE guest appearances is Brendan Schaub at 82. He is closely followed by Eddie Bravo with 81 appearances and Bryan Callen who has appeared 80 times.
