If it wasn’t official, it is now: Ballistic Magazine cover alum and current contributor Pat McNamara has made it big time. He was the featured guest on Tuesday’s episode of the Joe Rogan Experience podcast.

If you’re unfamiliar, Joe Rogan — comedian, UFC commentator and former “Fear Factor host — has one of the most popular podcasts on the planet. Seriously, he’s a podcast OG.

The Joe Rogan Experience Podcast Rundown

Mac and Rogan hit it off instantly. Rogan mentioned that he’s big fan of Mac’s Instagram page, particularly his motivating qualities and workout videos.

“If there’s a guy I’m going to call when the shit hits the fan, it might be you,” Rogan said.

Throughout the 100-minute podcast, the two talk military, fitness, injuries, depression, firearms training, hobbies, and general badassery. And of course, Mac gave Ballistic Magazine and Combat Handguns a shoutout at the 1:32:34 mark. Truly appreciate the nod, buddy.

Listen to the entire podcast above; it’s well worth the time. For more on the Joe Rogan Experience, please visit And who knows? Maybe we’ll get Rogan involved with an upcoming issue of Ballistic Magazine.
