    Why your Joe Rogan podcast feed doesn't have new episodes

    Why your Joe Rogan podcast feed doesn't have new episodes

    Joe Rogan said: Young @jamievernon tested positive for COVID-19. I tested negative, and the rest of the staff tested negative but we’re shutting everything down until we get an all clear from our doctor. I was out of town last week and the shows that aired had all been previously recorded, so I haven’t had any contact with Jamie in the past 9 days except for briefly today, but I’m staying away from everyone and being tested every day until I know I’m in the clear.
    I’ll keep you folks posted as to when the show will resume.
