In the 2.5 hour episode, Rogan and Watts spent nearly 30 minutes discussing Internet privacy, apps and advertising:
"If you want to use Instagram or if you want to use Facebook, you are kept up to date."
They discussed their difficult experiences with many of & # 39; s great social media apps along with Google & # 39; s intensive surveillance and tracking and pointed to a recent $ 5 billion lawsuit filed against Google for tracking users, even in privacy mode, without permission.
Rogan said that by accident, an ad discovered a product worth exploring and Watts immediately referred to the Brave browser as his preference browser to prevent tracking:
"I'll go to Brave, a private browser, and I'll look up the product there."
Rogan said he also used Brave along with Duck Duck Go, which Watts said was "not so good" Brave since "searching the search engine." Watts even responded to a future involving blockchain technology as a whole, saying, "The future is divided."
Earlier this week, Brave reached more than 15 million active users, growing 125% last year, with more than 5 million daily users.
The Joe Rogan podcast is no stranger to cryptocurrency guests, including Bitcoin expert and best-selling author Andreas Antonopoulos and & # 39; former Dogecoin CEO & # 39; Elon Musk.
