Joe Rogan has one of the most popular podcasts on the internet (the Joe Rogan Experience). The podcast has featured a variety of guests and topics, but one thing Joe has not touched yet is Bitcoin. His fans, using the power of reddit and Twitter, are about to change that.
A Rogan fan noticed this and took a quote from Joe about Bitcoin, turned it into a meme, and posted it to the r/Bitcoin subreddit:
This post drummed up a lot of discussion about Joe Rogan and why it would be cool if he had a Bitcoin expert on his podcast. That discussion led to this post to r/Bitcoin:
This gets a little confusing, but that post linked to a post about Bitcoin in the r/JoeRogan subreddit (a subreddit for Joe Rogan fans). This linkage connected the Bitcoin enthusiasts with Joe Rogan fans, allowing them to collaborate on getting Joe to invite Andreas (Bitcoin developer/entrepreneur/expert) to come on the podcast.
The Rogan fans and Bitcoin enthusiasts started tweeting Joe Rogan on Twitter. An enormous amount of tweets were sent to both Joe and Andreas, which received the attention of Joe and eventually led to this tweet:
@aantonop I would like you to appear wearing a black t shirt with large white letters that says “BITCOIN JESUS.” I hope that’s cool with you
I hope you were able to follow all of that. With a few key posts directing the reddit crowd, a grass roots effort was organized and executed successfully. It is amazing what we can do when we organize ourselves with a tools like reddit and Twitter. I am now anxiously waiting for the podcast between Joe Rogan and Andreas Antonopoulos!
