The Joe Rogan Experience has come a long way since 2009. Starting out laid back and low-key, just friends hanging out on couches and office chairs, the show has evolved into a massively popular podcast with millions of listeners/viewers.
We've been treated to a wide variety of guest stars, from rockstars, to nutrition experts, to politicians and comedians. Any fan of the "JRE" is familiar with the regular guests such as Joey Diaz, Tom Segura, Eddie Bravo, etc...but how far back have you gone? Did you know that the first ever guest was Ari Shaffir?
With so many episodes and lengthy conversations, it's a remarkable feat if someone can claim to have listened to every episode and caught every guest. So what follows isn't a list of the greatest or most popular guests, but rather a collection of episodes that a majority of listeners didn't catch.
Could be you're new to the show and haven't gone back into the archives, or you're a longtime listener who happened to skip them. We've tried to narrow it down to 10 of the more intriguing guests who got overlooked.
Let us know who should have been included in the comment section!

"I know it's real" ~Bobo Fay
Bobo Fay is one of the stars from the show Finding Bigfoot, a series that ran from 2011-2018 on Animal Planet. And yes, that's the entire premise of the show...they search for the mythical Sasquatch on every episode.
Fay comes off perfectly nice and super chill while he presents his case for Bigfoot being real. You can tell he really believes what he's saying. It's quite fascinating to hear his solid facts proving the existence of the creature. (by "solid facts", I mean: he heard from a dude who totally might have evidence). Expect derailments from Redban as this aired in the time before Jamie started producing.
Joe doesn't go too far in questioning and debunking the points Fay brings up, as there's still a part of him that wants it to be real. This episode would foreshadow the premiere of Rogan's Syfy show later that year Joe Rogan Questions Everything. After he and Duncan Trussell went "squatching" themselves, Rogan's skepticism levels rose dramatically.
