Joe Rogan, a popular Los Angeles-based podcaster, has finally had enough of lawless California and is moving to Texas to “have more freedom.”
Earlier this year, Rogan said that his Joe Rogan Experience podcast has upwards to 190 million monthly downloads, and the host recently took a $100 million deal to move his podcast to Spotify.
Rogan, though, is famously tight with many comedians, sports figures, and entertainers based in Los Angeles, many of whom appear on his show.
But Rogan has finally had enough of the crime, lawlessness, failed political leadership, and outright inhospitable atmosphere of the left-wing State of California.
“I’m outta here,” said Rogan when Joe De Sena, the CEO and founder of Spartan and the Death Race, asked him about moving. “I’m gonna go to Texas.”
“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 explained.
“Also I think that um, where we live right here in Los Angeles is overcrowded. And I think, most of the time that’s not a problem. But I think it’s exposing the fact that it’s a real issue, when you look at the number of people that uh, are catching COVID because of this overpopulation issue,” Rogan added.
“When you look at the traffic, when you look at the economic despair, when you look at the homelessness problem that’s accelerated radically over the last six, seven, ten years, I think there’s too many people here,” he said.
“I think it’s not tenable, I don’t think that it’s manageable. And every mayor does a s**t job of doing it because I don’t think anybody could do a great job of it. I think there’s certain things you’re gonna have to deal with when you have a population of whatever the f**k L.A. is, it’s like twenty million plus people,” Rogan exclaimed.
“It’s just too many people,” replied De Sena.
“It’s too many people,” Rogan said.
