Joey Diaz on Joe Rogan Leaving LA for Austin Texas Next Month

Joe Rogan is reportedly moving to Austin, comedian and friend Joey Diaz said on his podcast.

UPDATE (8/9): Locals say new studio is in a home on Lake Austin in West Austin, Texas.


Rogan has mentioned on his own podcast the possible move to Austin before but has yet to confirm any decision.

On Diaz's July 15 podcast episode, "The Church #804," Diaz himself said he is thinking about leaving California, citing taxes, a reported rise in crime and cuts to police budgets. He went on to say that he received a call from Rogan last week that he is moving next month.

Rogan last mentioned a possible move to Austin in June, saying he would fly guests out to be part of his podcast. The "Joe Rogan Experience" podcast landed a deal with Spotify this year reportedly worth $100 million.
