Podcaster and Comedian Joe Rogan has revealed that the new podcast studio for the Joe Rogan Experience is almost complete, amid his relocation from Los Angeles to Texas.

Since its beginning, the Joe Rogan Experience podcast has been based in California, a hub of influencer activity and celebrity culture, with access to many well-known guests.

But in recent months, Joe has made it abundantly clear that the LA life is no longer for him. In episode #1523 of the podcast, he explained that “I don’t think this is a healthy way to live. I don’t think it’s good for your brain.”

Expanding, he said that he didn’t agree with how normalized riot and looting culture had become in the golden state. “You see a f**king looting and a riot and a building on fire on TV, you don’t even flinch,” he said. “On a regular basis there’s crazy sh*t going on.”

Earlier in August, Joe revealed that the construction for the new studio in the “more free” Texas was underway, and finally shared the first look at the new studio via an Instagram post.

The mounted cameras, TV, and tables and chairs followed the familiar setup that fans are used to seeing, but the walls had an interesting geometric lattice pattern, and is in more of a curved shape.

Joe seems to have slowed down on the release of his usually frequent podcasts, at the time of writing having not uploaded one in over a week. But with the release of a newer, more complete video of the studio construction, it seems that the Texas rebrand of the JRE show may arrive sooner than expected, saying “the new JRE studio is almost complete.”

This time, the curved space is filled with striking red lights, the tables and chairs now arranged into a more organized setup, with the TV on and ready to go. To the bottom of the image a functional control desk can be seen, and Joe even shows the nifty pop-up socket feature on the podcast table designed by Wrightsmith Studios.

The studio overall was designed by Soundshed Studios, who shared an equally stunning image of the new studios without the table, showing off its futuristic red-toned design.

Now the studio seems very close to up-and-running, fans of the show can likely expect to see brand new content sometime soon.


Pokimane reveals plans for Twitch VODs after DMCA takedowns

Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys has revealed her plans for her Twitch VODs, after many creators on the platform, including some of the very biggest, were hit with DMCA takedown notifications over content in their back-catalog.

On October 21, some of the most popular names on the platform revealed that they have been getting these DMCA notifications, with people such as Seth ‘Scump’ Abner, Tim ‘TimTheTatman’ Betar, and more finding that clips and VODs from past broadcasts have been deleted.

Obviously, in recent months there have been issues with streamers using copyrighted music on their stream, with many opting to stop so as to avoid any legal issues, but now their past content is being sifted through and checked, and the results are wiping out some of these creators’ favorite moments on stream.

While many streamers are doing all they can to keep their content on their Twitch channel available, Pokimane has revealed her plans for past VODs.

Pokimane has been streaming full-time since 2017, but may have to remove a lot of her content to avoid DMCA takedown requests.

After a viewer told Poki that fellow streamer Saqib ‘Lirik’ Zahid was to delete all of his VODs he’s built up over the years, she suggested that the same might be the case for her own channel.

“Lirik’s going to delete all his VODs? Well, guess what, it’s not just Lirik,” she told her viewers during her October 22 stream.

She continued: “Today, tomorrow, at some point, you guys are going to come across my channel and there’s going to be zero content. Sucks to say, but it is what it is.”

Of course, there will be many top streamers considering that reality right now: that the content they’ve put out over however many years could simply be erased due to the music being played in the background.

Some content creators have already started taking down old VODs and deleting clips, and Pokimane may be just one of many that do so to avoid being banned from the platform altogether. We might see some creators start transferring their content to YouTube, but this would likely require a Herculean effort, too.

At the time of writing, Pokimane’s VODs haven’t been wiped from her channel.
