Joe Rogan has spoken out about why he decided to move his podcast studio to Texas, and discussed the reasons why Los Angeles just isn’t for him.

While the Joe Rogan Experience podcast has primarily been based in California since the beginning, in June Joe announced that he was considering moving his podcast to Texas, though he didn’t specify specifically where he’d move to initially.

In the 1514th episode of the podcast, he said that he wanted to move to “somewhere in the center of the country” where “you have a little bit more freedom.”

He said that there are “too many people” in LA, and that the homelessness problem, the traffic, and the “economic despair” make it too difficult to live there. He said that he would be moving out to Texas with his producer Jamie “soon.”

In episode 1523 of the podcast, with Joey Diaz, he clarified a little more about why exactly about LA was driving him away.

Topic starts at 5:40

“Why do you feel this strongly about Los Angeles, lately?” he was asked. “I don’t think this is a healthy way to live,” he said, “I don’t think it’s good for your brain.”

He discussed how he has become somewhat desensitized to the craziness of the city, and referenced how common rioting and chaos is in that area. “You see a f**king looting and a riot and a building on fire on TV, you don’t even flinch.”

“Like, on a regular basis there’s riots. On a regular basis there’s crazy sh*t going on. In Portland, Seattle, they’re trying to burn federal buildings. This isn’t rare. This is like every day.”

Joe recently revealed a first look at his brand-new Texas podcast studio, a slightly different feel to match his new start in a different state away from the craziness of LA.

He’s also signing on with Spotify in what is believed to be a multi-million dollar deal.

Logan Paul mindblown after pulling rare Pokemon cards worth $3000

Logan Paul has become an avid Pokemon card collector throughout the latter half of 2020, and treated fans of his Impaulsive podcast to watch him open a rare pack, the contents of which he was delighted with.

The Pokemon Trading Card Game originally got going in 1999 and now, over two decades later, is worth more than ever, with rare cards making sellers hundreds of thousands of dollars if they’ve kept their collection in good condition.

He recently revealed some of the collection he had been building up, including a first edition shadowless Charizard that could fetch anywhere between $40,000 to $60,000 at auction.

Letting his fans into the hobby, Logan opted to buy a pack of Base Set trading cards for $500 online and opened it live on Impaulsive.

Obviously, when you’re spending $500 on a single pack of cards, you’ve got to be pretty hopeful of the results, but Paul insisted he always gets his rarest cards from the seller he bought it from.

So, he opened them and revealed each card one-by-one, including a Squirtle which he expects to fetch around $200-300, perhaps more as he believes it to have a PSA grade of 10 — or, the best condition it could possibly be.

Alongside the regular Energy cards and some more Pokemon such as Gastly and Poliwhirl, Paul also packed a Blastoise, again expecting it to be PSA graded 10/10, which he says should fetch around $2500 — meaning the total value of the individual cards could fetch around $3000 if his valuations are correct.

Obviously, the valuations may be slightly off, but Logan has at least made his money back for this pack — and if he’s made a profit then more power to him.

There’s some serious money to be made in the Pokemon Trading Card Game now, especially as it enjoys somewhat of a resurgence of late, so it might be worth digging out those old cards and see what you’ve got laying around: you never know how much money you could be sitting on.
