Joe Rogan is fascinated by science and scientific theory from Ancient Egypt to the human mind, so it's no surprise that he's had a number of scientists and theorists as guests on The Joe Rogan Experience podcast. Since nearly every episode is about three hours long, there are few other platforms that allow you to get such a personal look at some of your favorite scientists.

On this list, you'll find the best Joe Rogan podcast guest theorists and scientists, including biologists, psychologists, and astrophysicists. Each of these scientists or theorists brought something different to the JRE podcast, including mainstays such as Jordan Peterson, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Sean Carroll, and Dr. Rhonda Patrick, to bigger names who showed up for one-off appearances like Chris Hadfield and Brian Cox. They talk everything from time travel, to mushrooms, to aliens with Rogan.
