Podcast cover
Read more


A very special hour long episode of #WTP LIVE! Host, Josh Zepps, sits down with the comic philosopher Joe Rogan.

The two compare their world views on Bernie Sanders, inequality, extremism, and just about everything else you'd expect. But, they don't just cover the news, they examine whether the current events are showing that the human species is evolving towards an enlightenment. It's quite the hour.

Thank you so much for listening.

Podcast cover

Hello humans! Thanks for listening to the first pre-recorded episode of #WeThePeople LIVE! Yes, pre-recorded and a show with live in the title is a bit of a contradiction, but press play and Josh will explain. This episode is delightful, we promise.

This week our guest Jim Norton, Juan Thompson, and Matt Welch, joined Josh at Pinebox Rockshop to talk about issues that effect us, the people, all the time.

You'll hear heated conversation about American foreign policy, the practices and mentality of the police, and, in Josh's words, "why American elections are so fucking long."

Rank #5: EP. 99 BRET WEINSTEIN: FREE SPEECH HERO, OR WHITE-PRIVILEGED DICK?

Podcast cover
Read more

Professor Bret Weinstein is the man at the center of the Evergreen College crisis. At this moment of national angst about racial equity, free speech and campus protests, Bret’s story has exploded everywhere from the New York Times to Fox News—the tale of the unassuming Biology Professor who stood up to radical left-wing students and found himself in the eye of the storm. But... who is this guy? What does he really believe? Josh and Bret sit down, not to discuss what happened—you can hear that elsewhere—but to discuss how his ideas led him here: Ideas about equality, learning, justice, and Ritalin. Put down your radical queer theory textbook, and dive in.

Rank #6: EP 114. GUNS IN AMERICA

Podcast cover
Read more

Every time there's a mass shooting in America, Josh considers recording this monologue and then shies away. But in the wake of the second-deadliest shooting at a public school in US history, Josh ditches our regular episode to bring you his unique perspective as a foreigner living in America -- without Piers Morgan's pompous dickheadery. Non-Americans and Americans will both enjoy this one-man debate exploring Australia's gun reforms, global violence, the Second Amendment, America's gun safety stalemate, whether to ban surfing, and the coming dystopian apocalypse. Enjoy!

Podcast cover

Three big stories are coming out of EuropaLand this week, and Josh wants to figure out what they mean for you. First, the UK just announced a surprise early election; second, France goes to the polls next week in an election that could blow up the E.U. and see a victory for the Far Right; and third, Turkish voters just handed their president quasi-dictatorial powers. Slate’s June Thomas and FreeThink’s Kmele Foster help Josh unpack the deeper significance of these seismic shifts across the pond. Switch on your book-learnin’ noggins, humans, and enjoy.

Rank #9: EP.79 ANDY KINDLER VS TWITTER

Podcast cover
Read more


It's been a controversial week for comedy legend Andy Kindler. The Letterman alum kicked a hornet's nest by tweeting that Sam Harris is an anti-Muslim bigot... on what turned out to be the eve of a jihadist attack on Westminster. Harris pushed back. A Twitter shit-storm ensued. #WeThePeople LIVE is the only show that has featured both Harris and Kindler as recent guests, so we sought a détente. Josh spoke with Sam via email, and sat down with Andy to discuss the disagreement, Islam, bigotry, and the ugliness of trolling. Who's right? Who's wrong? You decide! Our thanks to Harris and Kindler for their time. Make debate healthy again, humans.

He’s one of the world’s most successful cartoonists as the creator of “Dilbert”, the comic strip that appears in 2,000 newspapers in 65 countries and 25 languages.

Rank #11: EP. 102 IS "WHITESPLAINING" BULLSHIT?

Podcast cover
Read more

Do you “mansplain”? Do you “whitesplain”? Josh gets into a robust argument about identity politics, free speech and political correctness with proud left-winger Thomas Smith of the podcast Serious Inquiries Only. What role do straight white males have in this crazy day and age? Must we merely be obedient "allies" to whatever non-white non-men say? Controversial. Heated. Whitesplainy. You decide.

Rank #13: EP 117. WHAT IS CHRISTIANITY?

Podcast cover
Read more

In a world fractured by fundamentalism, Josh steps back to ask some bigger questions. How did Christianity come to rule the world? How does Islam hold sway over so many people? And what really went down in Bethlehem 2,000 years ago? Professor Francesca Stavrakopoulou is a professor in the Theology & Religion Department of Exeter University in the UK - although she's an atheist. She studied and taught at Oxford. She's hosted a documentary series on the BBC, "Bible's Buried Secrets". And most of all, she's not boring. To understand the meaning of life, tune in.

Podcast cover

Can an Asian American be "racist" against whites? Much of the American Left has been arguing an emphatic "No" ever since the New York Times appointed Sarah Jeong to its editorial board, despite her Twitter history of anti-white prejudice. Should she have been hired? Should she be fired? What should prejudice and human rights mean in the 21st century to the Left? Iona Italia (@IonaItalia) is the sub-editor of Areo magazine and has some deep insights.

Are Muslims Arabs? Is criticism of Islam a form of racism? And what is the deal with the meteoric rise of Jordan Peterson and "the Intellectual Dark Web"? As a non-Muslim, the Arab commentator Lalo Dagach is a champion of minority rights in the Arab world. And a Hispanic living in South America, he complicates our stereotypes about Latinos, Arabs, and atheists.

What is male privilege? What is female empowerment? Is it misogynistic to criticize feminism? Is it wrong to care about “men’s rights”? The argument has erupted again in Australia amid protests over a new American documentary funded by Men's Rights Activists. The filmmaker, an “ex-feminist” woman, had a controversial TV interview with today's guest, the Aussie television personality Rachel Corbett. Protests erupted. The film's premiere was canceled. Rachel sits down with Josh to hammer out her thoughts about feminism, equality, and and the unfairer sex. An earlier version of this conversation was briefly released in error last week. This episode is now in it's full quality. Enjoy!

Welcome back to a genuinely live #WeThePeople LIVE! Very proud and excited to bring you this great conversation.

Josh was honored to quip with Dave Hill, Negin Farad, and Andrew Kirell in front of the hospitable crowd at Pine Box Rock Shop.

Starting off you'll be hearing a multidimensional debate about prison reform, Obama's statements inside a prison, jails around the world, and, seriously, jails with taco stands. While that's not quite absurd enough, the conversation following about Iran, Trump VS. everyone, and Miss USA certainly will be.
