Though the world seems to be getting crazier and more unpredictable by the day, that hasn't stopped The Joe Rogan Experience train from moving forward. Rogan has continued to invite a variety of compelling individuals onto his world famous podcast throughout this unprecedented period and he may have just spoken to one of his most captivating guests to date in the form of Oliver Stone.

He's also been responsible for some of the most iconic movies ever made, writing the screenplay for Scarface (1983) and Conan the Barbarian (1982) whilst also writing/directing films such as Platoon (1986), Wall Street (1987), JFK (1991) and Natural Born Killers (1994) to name but a few.
