Joe Rogan has explained his reasons behind moving from Los Angeles to Texas and hinted at the move taking place sooner rather than later.

Ever since Joe Rogan started his Joe Rogan Experience podcast, it’s been hosted in California – either at his home in Los Angeles or in different studios and comedy clubs around the state.

However, not long after Rogan penned his game-changing move to Spotify, he revealed that he would be moving away from California and heading to Texas. 

While the reasons have been kept on the down-low since, with people left to speculate after Rogan noted that he could just fly guests into Texas for a show, he’s since revealed his own reasons for wanting the move.

Rogan has had a huge number of guests on his podcast.

During the 1514th episode of his podcast, Rogan had been chatting with Joe De Sena, who turned the tables and asked him about the upcoming move to Texas. 

“I just want to go somewhere in the center of the country, somewhere its easier to travel to both places, and somewhere where you have a little bit more freedom,” Rogan explained. He added that he believes Los Angeles is overcrowded and while that usually isn’t a problem, it has become an issue in the time of a global crisis. 

The podcast host continued: “When you look at the traffic, the economic despair, the homelessness problem, I think there are too many people here, it’s not tenable.”

As for where the UFC commentator is headed, he wouldn’t reveal anywhere specific in Texas but he has previously spoken about Austin. Rogan did note, however, that his podcast producer, Jamie, is joining him on the move and that they’ll be heading there “soon.” 

It won’t affect his hugely successful podcast or comedy career, either, as Rogan added that he’s actually been able to perform stand up in Texas during the ongoing situation and that he’s got plenty of friends in the state.


How to change your age on TikTok

Earlier in January 2021, TikTok changed the privacy rules regarding accounts for those under the age of 16, so if you need to change your age on the app to have a less restricted version of the platform, here’s how.

It’s very common when signing up to literally any website or application to put your age in wrong. Maybe you accidentally put it a year or two away from your actual date of birth or, in TikTok’s case, signups were bugged, preventing users from putting in their actual DOB.

We’ve seen the impact of this on other platforms — for example, Twitter brand accounts for new startup companies being suspended due to being ‘underage’.

So what’s the deal with TikTok, and how can you change your age on the app?

TikTok introduced new age restriction for users under 16 at the start of 2021.

New TikTok age restrictions 2021

There are two ways for you to change your age on TikTok, though they haven’t made it particularly easy: after all, they don’t want users lying about their age, especially if you’re below the allowed age of 13.

On January 13, 2021, TikTok also strengthened their privacy settings by making every account under the age of 16 private by default, which came just months after the mass ban of multiple underaged accounts.

So, here’s what you can do to change your age.

Contact TikTok about age change

Following the aforementioned mass bans, many users who were actually above the allowed age found themselves banned, too, and TikTok addressed this with advice for users looking to make sure they weren’t banned or restricted.

They advised hitting the ‘Report a Problem’ button in-app or, if you don’t have access, emailing [email protected] with proof of age. This has to be a government-certified identification such as a passport, driving licence, birth certificate etc.

Make a new TikTok account

If you have wrongly input your age, you could make a new account

If the above isn’t possible, your best bet is to make a new account. To do so, follow these steps to log out of your current one:

  1. Click the ‘Me’ tab
  2. Tap the 3 dots at the top right
  3. Scroll down and select ‘Log Out’
  4. Then you can follow the sign-up instructions to make a new account.

We have to reiterate that we do not advise doing this if you’re planning on cheating the system and lying about your age. These privacy settings were put in place for a reason, and even if you do lie about your age this will eventually be found out anyway.

If you have legitimate concerns that your age or date of birth is wrong in the app, and if it is hindering your experience, then these tips will help.
