The Always Sunny Podcast: Our Sincerest Apologies to Joe Rogan Fans

You know, we're big enough to admit we were wrong. And this is an apology directed at the Joe Rogan fans out there. Because earlier this week, we said that this week couldn't get better as a fan of FXX's Charlie Day, Glenn Howerton, Rob McElhenney, Kaitlin Olson & Danny DeVito-starring It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. First, we have the record-setting 15th season kicking off this Wednesday with a two-episode debut (more on that in a minute). Now while that alone would be more than make for a great week, we also had Day, Howerton & McElehenney dropping a new episode of The Always Sunny Podcast. Having covered "The Gang Gets Racist" (review), "Charlie Wants An Abortion" (review), "Underage Drinking: A National Concern" (review), and "Charlie Has Cancer" (review), the trio moved on to the fifth episode of Season 1, "Gun Fever." So we were content to ride out the week in a blissful state of twisted namaste, at peace with the world and without a petty, snarky bone in our body. And that's when we realized we were wrong and felt the need to apologize to Rogan's faithful listeners.

Turns out we have a lot more "petty" and "snarky" coursing through our veins than even we realized because once we saw online that The Always Sunny Podcast was still beating out The Joe Rogan Experience? Well, that's where the apology comes in because we just cannot resist twisting the knife because of just how butthurt the Newsradio supporting character & second-rate The Man Show host's acolytes get. So… sorry? Like I wrote last time, I haven't made it a mystery what I think about names like Rogan, Dave Chappelle, and Bill Maher. Essentially, whiney man-children yelling at clouds & raging against "cancel culture" while making sweet, sweet green from new contracts allowing them to be heard more than ever while those who could use a class or two in self-confidence and the ability to think for one's self hang on their every word. And the best part? It's a win-win! If it stays this way then Spotify spent a lot of cash on second place. If Rogan ends up back on top, he will still be looking over his shoulder because if The Always Sunny Podcast continues weekly at this rate (with one episode per show) then it's not going anywhere anytime soon.
