    Joe Rogan is awesome. Love his podcasts with scientists, especially with Lawrence Krauss and Neil Degrasse Tyson. And yes, purple is such an awesome color.

      Yes, Joe Rogan is the best! I totally agree, his podcasts with scientists and different academics are my favourite. They definitely get me thinking!
