Construction of Joe Rogan’s podcast studio in Texas is well underway, at least judging by an Instagram photo shared by The Joe Rogan Experience host, UFC color commentator and stand-up comedian.

Rogan, who recently announced he was moving from Los Angeles to the largest state in the lower 48 during an interview with Spartan and Death Race founder Joe De Sena, offered no meaningful details to go along with a image titled “Texas JRE studio set up started!”

probable notes that at least one Twitter user has compared the conical walls and ceiling of the space to the artwork featured on the Fibonacci sequence-inspired cover of Tool’s 2001 album Lateral.

On Instagram, the post received approving responses from former podcast guests, including former UFC fighter and current commentator Michael Bisping, and comedians Bill Burr, Andrew Schulz, Annie Lederman and Theo Von, among others.

Predictably, the same post proved more controversial on Twitter, with commentators making wild speculations about the possible reasons for Rogan’s move. Lower property taxes and a different political climate turned out to be popular guesses.

Rogan, who recently signed an exclusive $100 million podcasting deal with streaming platform Spotify, himself cited “more freedom” and the overcrowding of Los Angeles as two major motivators in his interview with De Sena.

“I just want to go somewhere in the middle of the country, somewhere where it’s easier to travel to both places and somewhere where you have a bit more freedom. Also, I think… where we live here in LA, it’s overcrowded. And I think most of the time that’s not a problem,” he said.

“But I think it exposes the fact that it’s a real problem when you look at the number of people who are, uh, getting COVID because of this overcrowding issue.”

Online press briefing Reports from Austria that Rogan has purchased an upscale home in Austin, but that location has yet to be publicly confirmed.
