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.

It's difficult to imagine running any modern business without some sort of conferencing capability, whether it's video, web or audio-based. While video conferencing has become an integral part of daily operations for many businesses, many companies still don't have a go-to service for interacting with clients. As a result, participants have to navigate the less-than-ideal 'which service should we use' conversation before each meeting, adding further complexity and distracting from the purpose of the discussion.

When Jarrod Stringer updated his driver's license address in 2014, the Texas Department of Public Safety website asked if he wanted to register to vote. He clicked yes and thought he was registered. That fall, when he went to vote in San Antonio, he was denied. According to the system, he had never registered. It was past the registration deadline, so he couldn't vote.
