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.

Eighty-seven providers in Travis County will receive a total of 75,540 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine for the week of March 8 as part of the 13th weekly allocation, a nearly 62% increase compared to last week's. The significant increase is largely due to inclusion of the new Johnson & Johnson vaccine, which received an emergency use authorization from the FDA last weekend.

The bulk will go to hub providers Austin Public Health and UT Health Austin, the clinical wing of Dell Medical School, as well as to Seton Medical Center, which will receive the largest share of this week's shipment. These three providers will either receive doses from Moderna or Pfizer.

Austin Police Chief Brian Manley received intense criticism for the police killing of Michael Ramos, an unarmed Black and Latino man, last April and his department's response to mass protests over the summer. When he announced his retirement Feb. 12, he said the criticism did not factor into his decision. But it will undoubtedly shape the nationwide search for his successor.
