Twitter Genius/Idiot Stefan Heck and comedian John Cullen invite guests on the program to talk about the who and the how of getting blocked on social media. From celebrities to jilted ex-lovers, every block has a story and we’re here to get to the bottom of it.
Who knew the Kentucky Derby VIP section could be a source of consternation? We learn just how, as Jemele Hill (The Atlantic, Jemele Hill is Unbothered) tells us the story of her positive meeting with country star Travis Tritt over mint juleps and how it didn’t seem to matter to him later on, as he blocked Jemele for having opposing political views (we think). Speaking of politics, this episode doesn’t shy away, as we get into what the mentions of someone with 1.3 million followers looks like, how Trump’s divisiveness has affected social media, and how the goalposts for how a President should act are constantly shifting. But hey, we’re the Blocked Boys and we also find time for silly stuff like Doritos, 2009 Twitter, old class photos, and we dig into Vancouver’s Da Vinky Twins.
If you want to dig into some more Vancouver content, you can do so by donating to Vancouver’s own at http://patreon.com/blockedparty, where $5/month gets you access to THREE bonus episodes every month. This month was a doozy as we released the second edition of BP D&D with Jamie Loftus and Branson Reese, we did another all-Cameo bonus episode with Taylor Lorenz, and a great mailbag with Lydia Burrell. Plus, we’ve got our Centennial Celebration coming up next month with tons of sweet bonus goodies coming your way, so don’t delay! You’ll also get access to our entire back catalogue and our super sweet Discord server, one of the best deals in podcasting, baby!
