Peterson + Rogan: Dream Team

I’ve listened to pretty much all of Joe’s podcasts as I have to Jordan’s: independently they are superb but together they bring out the absolute best in each other.

One leading light is Gad Saad whose praises I’ve sung in previous posts; the second is Jordan Peterson who has recently been forced into…
