Are there any guests that you've yet to have that would be sort of, here are my top three. I know you recently had Kanye West. What are some people that you think sort of are, you know, you must have them before this whole ride ends? None. Zero. I don't have that thought. Yeah, I mean, even Kanye. I mean, I guess I should probably say this. I kind of avoided talking to him for a long time because I was worried it was going to be not good for him because I'm such a fan of his as an artist. I think he's a brilliant musician, but I also think that because of his, I mean, he's been diagnosed as being bipolar. I mean, whatever you want to say, whatever mental issues he's had, I think they contribute in some ways to his art because he's so prolific. His mind is going in a million different directions all at once. And someone who is like that, but very different, of course, is Elon Musk. His mind is going in a million different directions all at the same time as well. And his ability to focus on so many different subjects simultaneously is stunning. Kanye is the same way, but in a different realm, right? His focus is on design and on rap and on now religion. I mean, he's become very religious and even politics, but he's very misunderstood. Kanye is a very misunderstood person. And I think that he doesn't do himself any service by calling himself a genius and all the, but all the that. All the Trump stuff. Similar to Trump, right? He's kind of, you know, he pats himself on the back and pumps himself up and talks about his accomplishments and his financial success and all those different, and for whatever reason, those put some people off. They don't put me off, but they did. They do put some people off, but I understand why he does it. I understand that he's, he's kind of looking to affirm that he's on the right path. Like he, like these are markers of success that he could point to. Like you can say he's an idiot. You could say all these different things, but hey, look at all he's accomplished. Look at what he's done. And if you listen to his music, I mean, he's brilliant. There's no doubt about he's brilliant. He's insanely prolific and his stuff is great. He's never put out a bad album. They're all great. And he's married to an Armenian woman, as is your good friend, God, sad. So that's a commonality that we both share. Episodes of the Joe Rogan experience are now free on Spotify. That's right. They're free from September 1st to December 1st. They're going to be available everywhere, but after December 1st, they will only be available on Spotify, but they will be free. That includes the video. The video will also be there. It'll also be free. That's all we're asking. Just go download Spotify. Much love. Bye-bye.
