The episode and Peterson's appearance were expected for a few days before its release yesterday, leading to a lot of hype and preparation to rebuttal about anything said within it from both supporters and detractors. That night and the following day after it dropped, hot takes and heated debates about it took place on Twitter and other platforms.
Anyone else super getting excited about Jordan Peterson on Joe Rogan?

jordan peterson went on rogan looking like an oil baron to do 30 minutes of some of the most insane oil lobbyist propaganda ive ever seen.

Among the vitriol, an opportunity arose where jokes could be made by pretending the two either would or already had discussed something really simplistic, or childish, while pretending it was a very high-brow thing. This was explored at the same time that people began to dissect the podcast and noticed irregularities with how host Joe Rogan reacts to similar statements and ideas being shared by different people.
jordan peterson: so we are expected to believe that Brain, an unusually brilliant mouse, his plans are foiled-
rogan: they always go bad.
peterson: -because of Pinky, the exceptionally dim witted mouse.
rogan: where does the dragon come in
peterson: i'm getting to that

in his talk w/ jordan peterson just now, joe rogan completely went along w/ his deranged climate science denialism. but he called out candace owens for the same. rogan just makes up his views on the spot based on who he's talking to and how he feels on that given day. pure idiocy pic.twitter.com/uYAYxsnyoy
