Popular Twitch streamer Michael ‘Apex Legends. 

California was been rocked by a second powerful earthquake within the space of two days on July 5, with the latest reaching magnitude highs of 7.1.

As California is used as a hub for Content creators to collaborate with each other, many popular Twitch streamers who are based in the state, such as Shroud, reacted to the shock while livestreaming to thousands.

Twitch: shroudShroud is one of the most popular streamers on Twitch and has experienced quite a lot on stream.

Shroud was testing out the new ranked play mode that was released with Apex Legends Season Two when he realized that another earthquake was on the way, “Oh my god, did we just get another earthquake?” Shroud asked, surprised, “Yeah we’re getting the earthquake, holy fuck.”

He then switched his camera to full screen and his entire desk could be seen shaking significantly in what was considered to be one of California’s strongest earthquakes in recent times, saying “Bro it’s still going, this is crazy what do we do?”

One of Shroud’s friends even mentioned that the earthquake could be felt in Las Vegas, Nevada, however, it did not seem to set them back from finishing their game of ranked play and earning more elo despite their “monitors jiggling” mid-game.

After the earthquake had passed, the Canadian streamer shared his emotions following the dramatic event by simply tweeting out “AHHHH” among the wave of panicked Californian residents.

As one of the most popular Twitch streamers on the platform, shroud has already experienced his fair share of dramatic and bizarre events affecting him while livestreaming, such as dealing with hackers in Apex Legends, but an earthquake takes it to another level.

Although it was one of the largest earthquakes in decades for the Golden State, it appears as if shroud managed to get through the tremors without damage to any of his equipment – and it didn’t stop him gaming.

The Joe Rogan Experience podcast enjoyed a relatively brief appearance by Dave Chappelle on an episode with Donnell Rawlings. And, to the joy of Rogan and Chappelle’s fans, the two set a tentative date for a full show together.

Rogan’s audience is gigantic and, as such, the names on his guest list frequently are as well. But, despite murmings of interest, Chappelle has long eluded one of the podcaster’s extensive interviews. That may soon change, as the iconic comedian confirmed that this new JRE setup in Austin suits his fancies and merits a full appearance.

A little over two hours into Rogan’s episode, No. 1,567, with Rawlings, headsets plopped off, seats got shifted, and both host and guest stood up to make way for a surprise appearance by Chappelle. Rawlings was glad to reunite with his friend from the Chappelle Show and Rogan seemed excited to finally get the comedian on the mic.

All it took was a new bunker studio in Austin, a lit joint, and a cup of coffee before the three were back to talking topics and, without much prying, Chappelle offered to come back on the show for a full episode. The tentative date for that episode? Soon after the presidential inauguration.

For mobile users, the segment begins at 2:30:20.

While spending about an hour chatting would sound like a full podcast to most people, that’s far from what Rogan’s fans have come to expect from his show. So, while Chappelle’s stint on the episode was substantial, he was acutely aware that a more thorough appearance was deserved.

After dapping up Rogan and Rawlings, Chappelle took his seat, got situated with some grass and caffeine, and eventually began discussing how much he enjoys Austin, Texas, along with the new studio.

From the ring to the studio, Rogan’s repertoire of interesting interviewees is boundless.

“I like this setup a lot, man. It feels homey. You actually just tricked me into doing a podcast. I’m going to come and do it for real, for real. As a matter of fact, I should come after the inauguration.” 

Rogan, who has mentioned wanting Chappelle on the show numerous times, including in December 2019, was fully on board with the scheduling opportunity: “Let’s do it. That sounds great.”
