RATING
It was an incredible interview. This was one of the first Rogan shows I'd watched/listened to and it's smart, thoughtful, and really emotionally genuine.
Megan Phelps-Roper was a member of the Westboro Baptist Church, but she left. She sat down with Joe and over 2 and a half hours they went in-depth about the experience and what it was like to be inside the church, and now what it's like to view it from the outside. This is classic JRE where Joe asks every question imaginable and the guest is an open book. One of his best podcast episodes.
Very fascinating glimpse into a very insular community.
This is such a powerful episode. Listening to such an articulate/rational person describing her experiences with WBC shows the power of the brain to conform and bend to ideology. Also an interesting lesson on first amendment rights.
Amazing episode. Megan is an incredibly interesting guest. She does a great job of explaining her past, how the Westboro Baptist Church is actually made up of intelligent people, and how Twitter (of all things) helped her escape that cult. Very powerful. She also did some serious educating on the first amendment
