ONTD’s favorite podcaster Joe Rogan is trending once again. This time? Because he’s packing up and moving his podcast from California to Texas because he wants “a little bit more freedom.”
On a recent podcast, Rogan said: “I’m outta here. I’m gonna go to Texas. I just want to go somewhere in the center of the country, somewhere it’s easier to travel to both places, and somewhere where you have a little bit more freedom."
He continued: “Also I think that um, where we live right here in Los Angeles is overcrowded. And I think, most of the time that’s not a problem. But I think it's exposing the fact that it’s a real issue, when you look at the number of people that uh, are catching COVID because of this overpopulation issue.”
“When you look at the traffic, when you look at the economic despair, when you look at the homelessness problem that’s accelerated radically over the last six, seven, ten years, I think there’s too many people here,” he continued.
“I think it’s not tenable, I don’t think that it’s manageable. And every mayor does a shit job of doing it because I don’t think anybody could do a great job of it. I think there’s certain things you’re gonna have to deal with when you have a population of whatever the fuck L.A. is, it’s like twenty million plus people,” Rogan said.
Months ago, Rogan had said that the coronavirus lockdown had enticed him into the idea of moving: “If California continues to be this restrictive, I don’t know if this is a good place to live. I might jet. I’m not kidding. I’m not kidding, this is silly. I don’t need to be here."
The brocaster also said video games are a waste of time, which added to the backlash and trending.
“Video games a real problem. You know why? Because they’re f**king fun. You do them, and they’re real exciting, but you don’t get anywhere.”— DEXERTO.COM (@Dexerto) July 26, 2020
