EXCLUSIVE: Joe Rogan teases new Texas podcast studio; locals say it's a home on Lake Austin (TIMELINE)
Multiple sources confirm that LA-based podcast host Joe Rogan has purchased an Austin, Texas home overlooking Lake Austin, after working with a prominent local realtor for several weeks and touring multiple high-end homes under a non-disclosure agreement.
The home is said to be the future office and broadcast headquarters for The Joe Rogan Experience podcast, which Spotify recently licensed, reportedly for more than $100-million, sources say.
Timeline of Joe Rogan moving to Austin
An Instagram post this weekend from Rogan gives a glimpse inside his new "Texas JRE studio!" as it's being built.
Rogan has talked about Austin as his potential new home but has not publicly confirmed his new hometown.
Locals say Rogan is said to be still shopping for a home nearby for himself and his family.
The Joe Rogan Experience episodes are typically ranked among the most listened to on Apple's podcast app. JRE landed the deal with Spotify earlier this year.
Rogan posted a glimpse inside his new studio on Instagram on Saturday.
Over the last few months, Rogan has discussed his idea to move to Austin on his podcast, which is currently based in Los Angeles.
"I just want to go somewhere in the center of the country, somewhere it's easier to travel to both places, and somewhere where you have a little bit more freedom," Rogan said on the July 24 episode of JRE.
Rogan has also said he would fly guests out to Texas for interviews. Some of Rogan's most popular episodes feature interviews with Tesla founder and CEO Elon Musk, conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, conservative pundit Ben Shapiro and whistleblower Edward Snowden.

Despite a 2-0 deficit, there was a pot of gold for Austin FC after all as it celebrated its annual Pride Night with rainbows and a 2-2 comeback draw to FC Dallas Saturday night.
After three FC Dallas losses last season, the Dallas derby draw marks the first time Austin FC has tied against its Copa Texas rival. Austin continues to edge over FC Dallas as it sits at 3rd in the MLS West.
Here are the biggest takeaways from the match:
A somber start
Decked out in colorful hues for LBGTQ+ Pride, Verde fans started the match on a somber note as they held up banners to take a stand against gun violence before the match.
As the national anthem began, fans held up banners with the names of each child that was killed in the Uvalde school shooting and a plea to "end gun violence."
The supporters' section was also dotted with Pride flags and a "Bans off Our Bodies" banner in protest of the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.
FC Dallas earns a 2-0 lead
That sober tone continued onto the pitch. With midfielder Daniel Pereira's absence due to a red card, the Verde and Black lost two goals to FC Dallas by the 70th minute of play.
FC Dallas played it sneaky for the first half of the match, giving Austin FC plenty of room to hold possession as it waited to strike on a Verde error. That mentality proved dangerous for Austin as Dallas' Paul Arriola took advantage of Brad Stuver's deflection to score the first goal of the night in the 57th minute of play.
Dallas struck once more as Brandon Servant pushed past the Verde line to score the second goal of the match.
Austin FC strikes back
But energy quickly returned to Austin's favor thanks to Designated Player Sebastian Driussi, who scooted past several FC Dallas defenders alongside Moussa Djitte to snag an unlikely first goal for Austin.
A full Verde comeback
Austin's subs proved deadly as momentum returned to the home team toward the end of the match. A well-placed cross from Nick Lima—and a diving header from a fresh-legged Danny Hoesen—helped the team secure the draw with a second Verde goal in the 84th minute of play.
Hoesen, who was Austin's first starting striker last season, has now scored two goals with the team after a yearlong injury stuck him on the bench.

Hours following the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling to overturn Roe v. Wade, the landmark ruling that guaranteed a constitutional right to an abortion, on Friday, about 1,000 people gathered in Republic Square with signs calling for change.
The rally, organized by the group Rise Up 4 Abortion Rights Texas, started at the federal courthouse on Republic Square on Friday at 5 p.m. before the crowd marched to the Texas Capitol. More protests are expected to ensue over the weekend.
People showed up with all types of signs like Mindy Moffa holding up, "Keep your filthy laws off my silky drawers."
Austin joined cities across the country that saw protests for a women's right to an abortion after the ruling.
According to a recent UT poll, 78% of Texas voters support abortion access in most cases.
Sabrina Talghade and Sofia Pellegrini held up signs directed at Texas laws. A Texas trigger law will ban all abortions from the moment of fertilization, starting 30 days after the ruling. When state legislators passed the trigger law last summer, it also passed laws for more protection of firearms, including the right to open carry without a permit.

From the Texas Capitol, Zoe Webb lets her voice be heard against the Supreme Court ruling.
