(Joe Rogan/Instagram)

The Joe Rogan Experience will make its Spotify debut Monday evening.

The Joe Rogan Experience will be be available for the first time on Spotify as a result of a reported $100 million licensing deal that takes effect Monday evening. Host Joe Rogan also recently relocated his company to Austin and teased the new studio on his Instagram this past weekend.


The Spotify deal was set to take effect Sept. 1. In a Monday morning Instagram post, Rogan said it is launching at 7 p.m. Texas time because it will be Sept. 1 in Australia.


Per the multi-year licensing deal, Rogan's back catalogue of episodes will be available on Spotify, and later this year, all JRE content will become exclusive to the streaming platform.

Rogan recently told Forbes that nothing will change beyond the podcast's platform. "It will be the exact same show," he said.

In other news, the new home of The Joe Rogan Experience is just about complete, Rogan announced on Instagram this past weekend. He is also rumored to be settling in his new Austin home.

After months of teasing that his podcast would relocate to Texas, Rogan finally confirmed the news last month.

And now it is underway: Rogan posted about the move all weekend, starting with the post about his nearly complete JRE podcast studio.

Other posts included podcast relics that are coming along to Austin.

Rogan provided a first look at the studio earlier this month month. At that time, he was rumored to have been working with a prominent local realtor, touring multiple high-end homes under a non-disclosure agreement.

Between Instagram teasers and a 10-day hiatus from his podcast show, which typically releases multiple episodes a week, fans speculated that Rogan is likely in the process of settling into Austin.

When Rogan first announced he was taking his podcast to Texas, he said he would fly guests in for interviews in the new studio. A Reddit user posted that local podcaster Adam Curry is one of the first post-move guests.
