New Austinite Joe Rogan visits the Governor's Mansion

Joe Rogan made news when he moved his home base from California to Austin back in July, and the brand-new resident has certainly made his presence known in the Texas capital since.


Rogan, who is best-known for hosting the multimillion dollar "Joe Rogan Experience" podcast, was pictured visiting Texas Gov. Greg Abbott in his home Thursday.

Abbott welcomed Rogan with a tweet, saying the new Texan "fits right in."

Rogan, who flies out different guests for his podcast, has featured several Austin celebrities since moving, including Academy Award winner Matthew McConaughey and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones.

The podcaster recently canceled a host of planned podcasts due to one of his producers contracting COVID-19. The show's schedule has since resumed.

Only one question remains: Why have the rest of us never been invited?
