1. Joe Rogan

The Joe Rogan Experience | $30 million

The stand-up comic launched The Joe Rogan Experience in 2009 with then-cohost Brian Redban, in the first wave of comedian podcasters that included Adam Carolla and Marc Maron. He now has the No. 1 podcast in the world, according to Apple, and has claimed as many as 190 million downloads per month. His headline-making interviews with comedians, politicians, MMA fighters (Rogan moonlights as a UFC commentator) and conspiracy theorists are as big as even the biggest on talk radio. The host was accused of making transphobic comments in 2013 about mixed martial artist Fallon Fox, who is a trans woman. Rogan said on his show on Super Bowl Sunday that his remarks were taken out of context. Controversy notwithstanding, he is not likely to cede the top spot anytime soon. "He's delivering scale and engagement," says Tom Webster, senior vice president at Edison Research. "He's the No. 1 in terms of reach in the U.S."

Good for Joe, he's great at what he does. Long form conversations require a different skill set than short, twenty minute interviews, Rogan is superb at long form. 
 

I'm sure there's some asshole on here who will point out his flaws whilst failing (relatively) with their own life :D

I did not mean HaHa funny. 

the article is about them, the up and coming podcast that had some recent financial successes. the article was probably pushed by their publicist. 

 

the article mentions joe's success for context. it is not an article primarily about joe even if you like him more or only want to read articles about the most successful person in an industry.

 

get it?

How could Forbes know how much he's earned and how many downloads he gets per month?

His transphobic comment was that he didn't want a biological male beating the ever living shit out of women and he is correct.

You gotta imagine that Joe's marketing for UFC/MMA through the podcast has to be landing him some nice bonuses from UFC too.

No shit Sherlock. Why include any of that in an article about financials? (Rhetorical question)
