"The Texas JRE studio set up has begun!" Locals say new studio for the Joe Rogan Experience is on Lake Austin.

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.
