Joe Rogan has revealed some of his plans for the popular JRE podcast following his recent Spotify announcement, sharing that he might soon be leaving Los Angeles.

Joe Rogan is host to the wildly successful ‘Joe Rogan Experience’ podcast, which pulls in millions of viewers and listeners per episode and has featured stars such as Robert Downey Jr, Elon Musk, and much more.

However, after it was announced that it would soon be exclusive to Spotify, Rogan revealed some plans for the future of his podcast and that he was even eyeing up a new location to record from.

During the JRE episode on June 5 alongside Indie band HoneyHoney, the musical duo commented on Rogan’s current setup highlighting how similar it was to his last studio, which was also based in Los Angeles.

The UFC commentator replied, sharing that it was an easy transition from his previous spot because he does not have a massive production crew as some listeners might have come to believe.

“There’s no crew, it’s just Jamie and me, it’s just a trick,” he responded, before teasing yet another move, “I’m going to do it again in Texas.”

While Los Angeles has always been considered a hub for the top stars and influencers, Rogan revealed that he would not be too concerned over any missed opportunities and pointed out his plan for regular guests.

“There’s always air travel,” he continued, “Listen my thoughts about Austin, if I do move there, I’m just going to fly people in, I’ll fly anybody in.”

Rogan has been considering a move away from Los Angeles for some time. He even suggested, on one of his recent Fight Companions, that he and other comedians such as Bryan Callen and Brendan Schaub could set up their own comedy club in a new city.

While it is not confirmed yet if the move to Austin will take place, with his recent Spotify deal estimated to be worth over $100 million, he should have the means to do so if he chooses.

Spanish streamer ‘TheGrefg’ has broken Ninja’s world record for most people watching a Twitch stream during the Galactus Fortnite event.

David ‘TheGrefg’ Cánovas made Twitch history while streaming the Galactus event, which marked the end of Fortnite season 4, when he had more people watching him at once than any other individual Twitch streamer ever has in history.

The Spaniard was watching and reacting to the event, and captures appear to confirm that he reached a total of 660,000 people watching his stream at the same time before Twitch unfortunately crashed.

The previous record you might remember was held by Ninja from when he teamed up with rapper Drake, where the duo peaked at 635k viewers at once while playing Fortnite back in 2018.

This insane amount of simultaneous viewers in a broadcast was almost double the figures of the previous record, held by  DrDisrespect — now streaming on YouTube — when he had 338,000 during his return stream in February 2018.

Now, the title for most-watched stream on Twitch now belongs to TheGrefg, and while there are no official figures yet, screenshots and clips definitely seem to indicate the streamer managed to bring in than 660,000 people simultaneously.

Grefg was far from the only streamer posting impressive viewer counts during the Galactus event, which actually “broke” Twitch and caused the site to temporarily crash following the big reveal. This is the big reason why the official viewer count, while definitely impressive, isn’t exactly known just yet.

The event itself officially closed out Fortnite Season 4, with the Season 5 update arriving at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, according to Epic Games, with downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans — including Grefg — will get to check out all of the new content. Whether the streamer will be able to repeat his impressive record-breaking feat remains to be seen, but we certainly wish him the best of luck.
