Joe Rogan has always been the calm and collected voice bringing good tidings on his podcast. Things did change once boxing legend Mike Tyson came to town.

Joe Rogan Widened His Podcast Table Because Of Tyson

Joe revealed in his episode with Mark Normand the reason for his wide table as seen on his shows. The reason for everyone’s amusement was related to Mike Tyson. The podcast maestro revealed that Tyson was really pumped up and ready for a fight against an opponent when he came in to be interviewed. This happened back in Los Angeles but the star has not forgotten.

Roman explained, stating that “[Mike Tyson] is the reason why this table is this wide. This table, I was going to make it more narrow, I even had a smaller table that we were working with as a guide. We were still doing the shows back in LA, while we were setting up this studio, I did an interview with Tyson, and he was so amped up for this Roy Jones fight, that I got nervous being in the room”.

“I’m like, ‘I like that extra six inches of space between us because he was so ramped up. When he left, Jamie goes ‘that’s a totally different person,’ because he went from being, ‘Mike Tyson, pot grower, not working out at all’, to getting ready to go to combat again”, he continued.
