Default Apparently Peter Zeihan...

Mentioned Twilight:2000 on his appearance on Joe Rogan. Trying to find the exact time segment from the friend that listened to it.

Is it on any other service? Spotify won't let me join, for some reason.

It's at the 1:30 minute mark.

Twilight 2000 is such a niche property, it's kinda nuts that he name drops it. What percentage of Joe Rogan listeners would catch the reference and understand it? I'd guess less than 1%. T2k ain't like Dungeons & Dragons, that even the layman who'd never rolled a d20 before would recognize.

Pretty cool. It'd be neat if we could get Zeihan on here...

Yeah, I know it's the briefest of mentions, but it's a pretty cool name drop considering Rogan has about 11 million daily listeners and Peter Zeihan is someone I've been following for around a year now (I don't remember if I started reading/watching him before or after the Ukraine invasion).

We agree.

I wonder how many people unfamiliar with the product heard "...which is a very Twilight 2000, dog-eat-dog world...", and googled T2k. Regardless if it was 1 or 100 (or none at all), it's still cool that he mentioned it on air.

I wonder how and when he learned of T2k, whether he's every played it, and, if so, which version he prefers. Again, it would be neat if we could find a way to get him on here.

This presumes he hasn't been here for some time already...

Considering he's made a career out of kind of predicting the future and a bleak future at that, it wouldn't surprise me at all if he's played it or at least read through the rulebooks.
