The Joe Budden Podcast has halted production after the show’s host, Joe Budden, tested positive for COVID-19. Budden shared the news shortly after he starred in the podcast’s 387th episode alongside his co-hosts, Parks, Mal and Rory.
“So, I have [tested positive for] COVID-19. I’m pretty sure this affects our podcast schedule,” he tweeted to his listeners.
His most recent episode featured Top Dawg Entertainment artist Reason. Shortly after hearing about the unfortunate news, he elected to get tested for the virus. Fortunately, he has reported that his test results came back negative.
The Joe Budden Podcast was scheduled to release their 388th episode on October 31, 2020. However, Budden’s positive COVID-19 test has affected their release schedule. At this time, it is unclear when the show will resume production. It is is uncertain if the team will look towards virtual recording options or hosting the show with just Parks, Rory and Mal.
There is no word as to when Budden will be able to resume recording.
