Joe Rogan certainly has a colorful career.

But most of you will be more familiar with his podcast series...
via: YoutubeThe Joe Rogan Experience. Launched in 2009, The Joe Rogan Experience is an online audio and video podcast that interviews a vast array of different celebrities and political figures. The JRE has since grown to become one of the world's most successful podcasts, with it receiving millions of listeners and viewers for every episode.
Rogan's podcasts touch upon an array of topics...And reel in a variety of different guests, ranging from actors, musicians, political figures, sportsmen, authors, and beyond. Rogan does, however, tend to avoid the more traditional interviewing methods, and instead opts for more lengthy, yet casual and relaxed conversations.
And his podcasts never fail to get people talking.We all remember that Elon Musk interview... Come on. You know the one. When, mid-interview, Elon casually lit a joint and puffed away on it like there was no tomorrow? Ring any bells?
Aside from smoking pot with his guests...

But this week's guest may be Rogan's best yet.
via: Getty ImagesHe landed the incredibly famous whistleblower Edward Snowden for his podcast interview. And seeing these two interact seems to be what the whole internet has been waiting for.
Snowden famously leaked private info back in 2013.

Rogan is a massive proponent of being skeptical of everything.This meant that Rogan and Snowden are essentially an interview match made in heaven - and the internet was understandably excited about it.
Many wanted to drop anything.

Many had questions.Like, how had Rogan managed to get Snowden to agree to this?
It is pretty impressive.Rogan is really proving that there's seemingly no one he can't get on as a Joe Rogan Experience guest.
Snowden hasn't been heard from in a while.

While others pointed this out...
via: TwitterIt seems almost everyone out there is angling for a spot on Rogan's podcast - but it's clear he's not here to mess around.
Others noticed this.
via: TwitterJoe Rogan and Edward Snowden are basically two of the biggest figures online. Seeing them in one place was basically the most internetty thing ever.
But some made this joke.
via: TwitterThose who follow Edward Snowden don't tend to be the same kind of people who listen to the Joe Rogan podcasts - leading to some pretty funny scenarios to be imagined.
And it seems the Rogan audience was receptive.
