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.
Darcy Michael (comedian) returns to the show after a nearly 4-year hiatus from being an in-studio guest to tell us about a right-wing website getting ahold of his and his husband's YouTube and firebombing the comments, leading to a collaboration with YouTube to block over 10,000 accounts at once. It's a bad-ass move and Darcy wastes no time getting re-acquainted with Stefan as we discuss Stefan's bidet, Connor Bedard, our hockey pool, the sorry state of the Vancouver Canucks, Darcy tells us about him and Jer touring America last year, and Darcy weighs in on whether or not Stefan is a power bottom. Plus, Darcy tells us about Drag Queen Storytime, Stefan breaks down the very fake "got her number" tweet, and John talks about his dislike of a recent Jeopardy! champion. If you want to be a champion, you can head on over to patreon.com/blockedparty, where $5/month gets you access to THREE bonus episodes every single month. We are currently very close to being able to teach Stefan how to drive, and we've got merch discounts, an exclusive Discord, live show discounts, and a brand-new BP Lottery, so head on over there and check it all out and support the show! Darcy Michael is a comedian and TikTok influencer whose show, "Darcy and Jer: IRL" is running at the Vogue Theatre on Friday, February 17th. Tickets are available at jflvancouver.com. You can follow Darcy on Twitter, Instagram, and TikTok at @thedarcymichael. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
We are 217 episodes into Blocked Party but Girl God prove that history can still be made, as this is the first time in show history that the two guests on the program have blocked EACH OTHER, and they do it LIVE on the air! Grace Freud and April Clark join us for the mutual blocking as well as to promote their upcoming Vancouver show, where they insist they will need an Air Marshal present. We also discuss tote bags, receiving mild criticism, bumper pool, lawn bowling, summer school, Stefan is back with an I Was Poisoned update, and John finds the most cursed gym ever on TikTok. Plus, a top 3 goes off the rails for both John and Stefan to the point where they need to record one of the few (maybe the first?) addendums in show history. If you want an addendum to this episode that's a back catalogue with over 150 bonus episodes, then head on over to patreon.com/blockedparty, where $5/month gets you access to THREE bonus episodes every dang month. As you heard on the episode, we are trying to get to 150 $100 Club patrons so John can teach Stefan's broke ass how to drive, and you'll also get tons of other goodies if you join the $100 Club today! Live show and merch discounts, an exclusive Discord channel, super secret bonus episodes, and even more await, so join now! Girl God have a show in Vancouver on February 25th at the Biltmore Cabaret, and tickets are available at jflvancouver.com.

Erika Gajda (Swipes4Daddy) joins the show to talk about the trials and tribulations of running a very popular Instagram account that requires the use of Tinder, particularly once the folks over at Tinder HQ figure out exactly what Erika is up to and try to make her life that much more difficult. We discover Erika's insane number of burner phones, her attempts to dodge facial recognition software, and how to put the right photos on Tinder so the bots can't figure out exactly who you are. It's a wild ride, and we love every second of it. On this ride, Erika also tells us about the food poisoning bout that led to her cancelling her first appearance and the movies she watched, as John reveals he had a strangely busy movie-watching holiday season also. We also talk That 70s Show, 90-Day Fiancé, reprogramming the algorithm, France's Miss World representative, and Stefan is once again on his "I Was Poisoned" BS. If you want a lot less BS and a lot more BP, you can head on over to patreon.com/blockedparty, where $5/month gets you access to THREE bonus episodes every damn month. This week, Clare Belford joins us for a mailbag as we begin our quest to get to 150 $100 Club patrons so John is forced to teach Stefan to drive (which we will then film for your enjoyment). And the $100 Club (it's $100/year, not per month) is a great time as you get merch discounts, free live show tickets, every bonus episode, ad-free episodes, and access to the year-end BP Lottery, with exclusive prizes and other fun stuff. So get into it! Erika Gajda's Instagram account, @Swipes4Daddy, follows her as she matches with 45+ year-old men on Tinder and shares the results.

Dino Archie (comedian) returns to the show to teach us all about taking the low road, and how a group of impostors pretended to be 90s R&B singer Tony Terry and managed to separate Dino from his own personal Facebook fan page. So take your shoes off and settle in to a great episode where we discuss Stefan and Dan's eventual fight, breaking up fights, our Subway orders, and we debate which fast food employees make the best fighters (public fights were sorta the theme of this one). Plus, Dino shows us a great clip from an open mic where a guy busts a guitar over someone's head, Stefan has a beef with the Sportsnet Plays of the Year, and John's dad draws a potato. If you want to draw something much better, head on over to patreon.com/blockedparty, where $5/month gets you access to the greatest art imaginable: Blocked Party bonus content. You'll get THREE bonus episodes every month, and if you donate at $8 or more, you'll get even MORE bonuses like the one we did last week where our friend Joshua Custodio came on the show to show us some of professional wrestling's wildest clips. You also get merch discounts, access to our Discord, ad-free episodes, and more, so check it out!

It's the 4th Annual Blocked Party Enemies List, and it's the first time we've recorded this episode before Christmas, as the folks at the damn calendar office wouldn't co-operate. So while you don't get the usual Christmas rundown from the fellas, what you DO get is our annual look at who we want to be mortal enemies with for the upcoming year. Before that, we go over our 2022 Enemies List, where Stefan finds out that he didn't really have an effective vendetta against most of his 2022 Enemies but John actually managed to get a business shut down (probably). And before ALL that, we talk the best Mario game ever, weed drinks, moving to Calgary, Stefan gives his Avatar review, John gets Stefan to agree to organize the 2023 Top Three Weekend, and Dan joins us in doing the Enemies List for the first time ever. FIFTEEN ENEMIES! It's the day after Christmas: no better time to get hatin'. Also, if you'd like to support the show, head on over to patreon.com/blockedparty. We got lots of cool stuff over there. Bonus episodes. Merch Discounts. Discord Access. It's cool (as I said previously). Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
It's a historic day at Blocked Party, as we do a Stefan block on a main episode and Mark Little (comedian) sets the record for the fastest return by a guest, coming back only 8 episodes after Appearance #1. Why? Well, our scheduled guest came down with the stomach flu a few hours before recording. Then, John came down with a migraine. With John knowing he barely had an hour before his body gave in, we switched Mark from bonus episode duty to regular episode duty, and John ended up with his "flu game", leaving the pod several times throughout but returning just in time to do an Andrew Dice Clay impression and according to Mark, reveal a more "cool, chill" version of himself. Of course, with John out of the picture, Stefan immediately introduces Mark to Rule 34 and Dewayne, and tries to figure out how he managed to get blocked by the NORAD Santa Tracker. Elsewhere, Producer Dan wears a dress shirt, Stefan reveals he can't read, Elon makes a new and bizarre rule for Twitter, and we wax poetic about the World Cup and 90s reboots. If you want to be a part of more history, you can head on over to patreon.com/blockedparty, where $5/month gets you access to THREE bonus episodes every month, plus a truly insane back catalogue totalling over 100 episodes. You get it all! 5 bucks! What a deal! Last week, we released the VOD of our live call-in show from November, and Chris James joined us to talk about "...And Just Like That". Plus we've got merch discounts, a discord, ad-free episodes, and more, so be a part of history!

James Hartnett (comedian, Evil Men) joins us to reveal his shameful truth to the BP audience: he has a sports burner account. And it turns out that you can still be a victim of name searching on a harmless burner account, which James finds out when he gets blocked by Sportsnet's own Jeff Blair for a comment that wasn't even directed at him. This episode also sees Stefan revealing a shameful truth, which is that he knows what Bad Dragon [dot] com is, and now, very, very unfortunately, so do you. We spend a good amount of time reviewing the contents of that site as well as bidets, poutine, 90s video games, dessert tables, and John makes friends with a cat. Plus, James has a friend who uses Facebook like Twitter, John asks the guys to weigh in on fudge, and Stefan graces us with the news that the Krassensteins are back on Twitter. If you want more Krassenstein content (quite literally--we interviewed them a few years back), you can head on over to patreon.com/blockedparty, where $5/month gets you access to THREE bonus episodes every single month. Last week, KC Novak joined for a great mailbag and this week, the VOD from last month's call-in show will finally grace the airwaves now that John and Dan are back from vacation.

Annie Rauwerda (Depths of Wikipedia) joins the show to tell us about a thing we didn't know existed: a guy who is really into noses. After a guy is in her mentions telling her how much he loves her nose, Annie has a bunch of her friends telling her to block him, but the story takes a few turns from there and ends up being one of the nicer Block Tales we've ever had on the show. And the whole show is nice in general, as we find out we're recording the show on Annie's birthday, the first time a guest has been willing to spend their birthday with us! What a birthday it is, too, as we learn about her new boyfriend, the Wikipedia editing community, and various Wikipedia hoaxes, including the teenager who almost killed an entire language with their Wikipedia posts. Plus, Stefan shows us a bunch of posts from guys who want Elon to invent stuff, John gets outed as a guy who looks like he might own a Tesla, and Annie shows us a piece of underwater fibre-optic cable. If you want to go underwater with us, you can head on over to patreon.com/blockedparty, where $5/month gets you access to THREE bonus episodes every damn month! This week, KC Novak returns to the show for a mailbag episode where we answer your listener questions, and we are nearing the conclusion of the Sex and the City episodes, plus other fun stuff is on the way.

Alyssa Limperis (comedian, actor) joins the show to give us the heads up that even if you post about your recently deceased father, the bots will still hunt and find you. In this case, it's "RyloStackz" who finds an Alyssa Instagram post about her dad and promises an herbal cure (?) for HPV (???). Thank goodness for that. And thank goodness for the rest of the episode, as we chat about old cell phones and other technologies, Alyssa's high school track career, John's abysmal high school Athletic Director, and the various mispronunciations of our names. Plus, Alyssa shows us her high school photos which causes some reminiscing about late 90s/early 00s "cool" fashion, Stefan gets laid off from his job, and dril gets interviewed in the Washington Post, which causes some commenters to lose their minds. If you wanna further lose your mind, you can head on over to patreon.com/blockedparty, where $5/month gets you access to THREE bonus episodes every single month. Last week, we had Caitlin Durante on the show to discuss the Canadian children's show Polka Dot Door, and we've got a bunch of other fun stuff up there like merch discounts, access to an exclusive Discord, ad-free episodes, and the $100 Club, which gets you lots of nice goodies.

When your scheduled guest doesn't show up, sometimes you have no choice but to resort to your next best option: a very stoned, just-woke-up, groggy Producer Dan. We try to wake Dan up by talking about G Fuel right off the top of the show, and that leads into a discussion about Dan's brand-new kittens (one of whom is named after piss) and his block, which sees him catch an instant block from an online wrestler (the real kind of wrestling). We also dive into Twitter's recent turn to collapse, trading card shows, Stefan learning to drive, and John's excitement for the documentary about the Pepsi contest Harrier Jet turns into a discovery mission for other people who have exploited mail-in contests for their own gain. Elsewhere, Dan buys a blue checkmark, Stefan shares an old Russell Crowe post, and John gives us an update on last week: Dan did indeed show us his single nut. If you don't want to buy a blue checkmark, how about spending that money on our show instead? We love your support and if you become a patron of the show over at patreon.com/blockedparty, $5/month will get you access to THREE bonus episodes every damn month. This week, it's a Canadian Education episode as we review Polka Dot Door, and we have our first-ever CALL-IN SHOW this Friday, live on Zoom. It's your chance to chat with the Blocked Boys and you have to be a patron to get the link, so join today! Dan is the producer of this show and some other great ones (I Hate This Team, Your Kickstarter Sucks) and you can follow him on Twitter and Instagram at @early90spants.

Ola Dada (comedian) joins the show to demonstrate one of the greatest displays of control we've seen in a Block Tale, as someone commenting on his viral joke starts their reply with four words and those four words are enough to earn that person the block without Ola even reading the rest of what they said. What are the words? You'll have to tune in to find out! When you tune in, you'll hear way more than four words from us, as we talk gift wrap, desserts, cheese, curling, Dan's dead nut, adult circumcision, and Stefan receives some "constructive criticism" on his hockey podcast. Plus, we dive into the online presence of alpha males, Twitter's insane last 10 days, and the world grants John the music festival of his dreams. If you want the bonus content of your dreams, head on over to patreon.com/blockedparty, where $5/month gets you access to THREE bonus episodes every single month. Last week, Becca made her return to the show for a mailbag episode in where she got high beforehand and we all had a lovely time as a result. This week, our continuing look at "And Just Like That" continues, as Danika Thibault returns to give us that key millennial insight into the show. And, we've got our last Zoom live show of the year coming up November 25th for patrons only, so don't miss out!

Lizzy Cooperman (comedian) plumbs the depths of her Facebook block list to find a weirdo who offered to draw her at a stand-up comedy show and then when he showed her the picture...well, let's just say it was problematic. How so? You'll have to listen to find out. And as you listen, you'll hear us discuss Lizzy's podcast, "In Your Hands", where she lets her listeners decide how to live her life, and John, spurred on by an old Eric Andre interview, thinks maybe that should include listening to some more Korn. We also get into assembling IKEA furniture, Crocs, journaling, Instagram verification, Eric Trump, and Buddhist movie reviews. If you want to bring some more zen into your life, donate to the show at patreon.com/blockedparty, where $5/month gets you access to THREE bonus episodes every single month.

Brandon Ash-Mohammed (comedian) joins us in-studio for the very first time to regale us with the tale of how he met up with someone who looked like "bootleg Eminem" off of Grindr and then had a very strange hook-up experience that led to a block. And that's not the only Grindr-type experience we get into, as Brandon updates where Stefan and John stand in the gay classification system now that he's met us in person, and he gives Stefan a compliment that Stefan believes is the highest he has received. And speaking of being high, Brandon tries BC weed for the first time and we chat about 90-Day Fiancé, hair loss treatment, Movie 43, Brandon's algorithm, 90s textbook covers, and Bob Costas has himself another weird broadcasting moment. If you want some more weird moments, head on over to patreon.com/blockedparty, where $5/month gets you access to THREE bonus episodes every single month. Last week, we finally released the video of us taking Jesse Farrar to Canadian Tire, and boy, is it ever fun. We've also got our last Zoom show of 2022 coming up near the end of November, our continuing Sex and the City series, and more great guests and bonus stuff coming down the pipe this month you won't wanna miss.

Mark Little (actor/comedian) joins the show to, in his words, provide us with a "short, troubling anecdote" about how he was forced to block a guy after he sent Mark a very strange DM and turned out to be...well, not a good guy (a Nazi). Thankfully Mark was able to cut the conversation off before it got too bad and the rest of this episode is neither short nor troubling, as we chat about Mark creating one of the first viral videos ever, Powerthirst, and how that led to an appearance at a weird convention for people who made stuff that went viral (in 2009). In other news, we recorded this episode two weeks ago and Stefan says he's excited for the Canucks season (lol) and that leads to a discussion of hockey fans, EA NHL soundtracks, and Treble Charger. Plus! Hellraiser and other horror movies, the Super Mario movie, YouTube comments on classic rock videos, and John forgot that he already talked about Coyote Ugly last week. If you want to make sure you hear everything we talk about every week, head on over to patreon.com/blockedparty, where $5/month gets you access to THREE bonus episodes every single month. This week, it's a pair of video episodes as Aaron Warner from ChapoFYM and I Hate This Team joins us to watch some classic hockey highlights in the special $8 tier and above bonus, and finally, the video of us taking Jesse from Canadian Tire will see the light of day. You won't wanna miss it! Plus, you get merch discounts, access to the Discord, live show discounts, ad-free episodes, and MORE!

Zach Cherry (actor, Severance) joins the show to reveal two things about himself: one, that he is a big BP fan, and two, that he could no longer handle the promoted tweets of slow cooker expert and former T-Mobile CEO John Legere, and so he had to dole out the block. Luckily our John doesn't get blocked on this episode, as his viewing of Coyote Ugly sparks a movie conversation, Zach reveals that by listening to our show he has been Joey-pilled, and a look into the phrase origins of "taking the piss" leads us to talking about, well...drinking piss. Elsewhere, we talk about Zach's quest to get as many retweets as possible on a singular tweet, John once again goes viral for just reporting the latest sports happening, and Stefan is back from TwitchCon with the inside scoop on the dreaded foam pit. Luckily, if you want to consume even more wonderful Blocked Party content, you don't need to break your back! It's just a simple $5/month donation to the show at patreon.com/blockedparty, and that'll snag you THREE bonus episodes every month. This week, Libby Watson joins us to discuss the latest "And Just Like That" episode, and of course coming very soon, we take Jesse from YKS to the danged Canadian Tire store!

The guests who have travelled the furthest to be in studio and two of our absolute faves, Tom Walker and Demi Lardner (comedians, bigsofttitty.png) join the show all the way from Sydney, Australia to discuss how one of Tom's biggest fans just couldn't handle the fact he got COVID and had to cancel some comedy shows. We have no trouble handling the tough topics on this week's episode though, as we get into some heavy stuff like slot car racing message boards, losing our virginity, witches on Tumblr, cane toad purses, and we go down another Rule 34 rabbit hole that leads to discussion of Goofy's history and we find a truly insane (and hilarious) Looney Tunes drawing. If you want more insane (and hilarious) content, head on over to patreon.com/blockedparty, where $5/month gets you access to THREE bonus episodes every single month. Last week, we put out another very special in-studio episode as the YKS Boys, Jesse and db, joined us all the way from Nashville for a fun hangout. Later this month there will also be a special "Jesse Goes to the Store...in Canada" video bonus episode that you won't wanna miss. Plus we've got higher tiers for more bonuses, merch and live show discounts, a great Discord, and more!

And we....are....LIVE! On the very first live edition of Blocked Party, Jesse Farrar (YKS, Go Off Kings) joins the Blocked Boys in Vancouver for a show in front of 110 of the podcast's finest fans, and it turns out having a live audience there is an excuse to get wild, as Jesse doesn't know how to use TikTok and gets himself blocked by "one of his guys", causing him to delete his entire account and start anew. Elsewhere on the show, Jesse teaches us about "reps" through the infamous "Booty Jordans" and Stefan thinks the name "Top Three Weekend" is wrong. Plus! Jesse meets Kiki, and we discuss phone numbers, toilets, A&W Canada, Jeffrey Toobin, Stefan getting mean online again, and John gets Jesse a gift: a National Geographic for Kids book about 9/11. If you want to get yourself a gift, you can head on over to patreon.com/blockedparty, where $5/month gets you ACCESS to THREE bonus episodes every single month! As you may know, a lot of our friends descended on Vancouver this week and that means some great bonus episodes are coming your way, including a hangout ep with the YKS boys IN STUDIO, and John and Stefan take Jesse to Canadian Tire for a very special bonus video episode. Plus your sub comes with merch and live discounts, access to our Discord, and a lot of other very cool stuff. So get into it!

Dana Smith (comedian) makes her debut on the show, and so does our new opening bit, much to Producer Dan's consternation. The rest of the episode doesn't make him upset at all though, as Dana tells us about her and her husband (and past guest) Tim Gray's wedding, which happened live on CBC Radio, and their upcoming big move to Toronto. John also gives Stefan and Dan some grief for showing up to recording 3 hours early, we discuss some plans for the upcoming live shows, we learn about Winnipeg, and Dana and John encourage Stefan to sing more. Plus, Dana has us weigh in on a suspicious DM, Joe Biden has a strange way of complimenting Elton John, and we dig into the vault for Patrice O'Neal's take on Radiohead's "Creep". If you don't want to be a creep or a weirdo, you can head on over to patreon.com/blockedparty, where $5/month gets you access to THREE bonus episodes every single month.

IT'S EPISODE 200!!! A double century's worth of BP can only be celebrated in one way, and that's by getting Dave Roth (Defector) on the show to Remember Some Guys. It turns out that a unique way you can get blocked by Republican pests on Twitter is not to try and get in a flame war with them over politics, but by simply commenting which baseball player their ratio'ed stat line might be best compared to. It's a block that only Dave could pick up and he uses it to get blocked by such luminaries as Comfortably Smug. The rest of the episode is all comfort and perhaps not a lot of smug, as we go extra long and talk about some of our favourite topics like bidets, the weird guys on Twitter who show their junk to porno bots, carpeted bathrooms, our student meals, and we do indeed Remember Some Guys in our Top 3. Plus, Erick Erickson, Stefan's N64 hot takes, and John finally reveals the type of Wife Guy he is. If you want to be a Blocked Party Wife Guy, you can donate to the show at patreon.com/blockedparty, where $5/month gets you access to THREE bonus episodes every single month. Last week, Andrea Jin joined us in our continuing series where we review "And Just Like That", the new Sex and the City spin-off, and we've got a sweet $100 Club where you can get a Cameo from Stefan and John, all the bonus episodes plus an extra one every other month, merch discounts, ad-free episodes, and an exclusive Discord channel.

Ryan Williams (comedian) returns to the show and tells us about the perils of having a very common first and last name combo, as he duels with a conservative politician on Twitter who is also named, well, Ryan Williams. Lucky for us, the Ryan Williams we love is the one who is guesting on our show, and he reveals himself to be a "John guy" and all that entails over the course of an episode where we touch on football, Farrah Fawcett, Queen Elizabeth, and we workshop what the new intro for the show should be with next week's new theme song and whether or not the show should add a soundboard. John also gets plagued with the news of a "Tim Allen drum kit" and Stefan pays tribute to us recording on 9/11 with an unfortunate podcast moment from last year. If you want some more fortunate podcast moments, you can head on over to patreon.com/blockedparty, where $5/month gets you access to THREE bonus episodes every single month. Last week, we posted a video episode with Alison Rosen where we watched Canadian Heritage Minutes, and this week, Andrea Jin rejoins the show to talk Sex and the City.

Charlie Demers (comedian) returns to the show with the rare Block Tale that has a happy ending, as a weird text exchange with an old friend ends up turning out positively and cooler heads prevail. And speaking of cooler heads, us Blocked Boys and Charlie talk about some pretty cool stuff as Stefan gets sick from the fair, Charlie teaches us lessons about our urine, and John is almost through his first watching of The Sopranos. Plus, we chat about how Charlie actually followed through with more Peep This Out! content after his last appearance on the show, and we get into One Bone shirts, Rob Schneider's new movie, the Pizza Hut "oral history", and we receive perhaps our worst Jibbitz yet. If you want some more of this show's oral history, you can head on over to patreon.com/blockedparty, where $5/month gets you access to THREE bonus episodes every damn month. Last week, Chris James joined us to talk about Stefan's block by Benny Johnson, and this week, Alison Rosen returns to the show for a Canadian Education video episode, the topic of which will be near and dear to many Canadians' hearts.

It's chaos, baby! And what more would you expect from one of our absolute faves, Racquel Belmonte (comedian), who returns to the show to drive the entire thing directly off the highway and into a rapidly flowing ravine. It starts almost immediately as discussion of The Sopranos devolves into a long segment about pegging, and never really recovers from there. Stefan buys a bidet live on the show after using John's for the first time in a while, while Racquel regales us about a particularly strong bidet in Hawaii that she uhh...used for other purposes. It's not all insane though, as John and Stefan discuss the wedding they went to over the weekend, Harry Styles waxes poetic about chicken nuggets, Twitter goes wild over student debt forgiveness, and we listen in on some Gaelic football commentary. Oh, and Racquel tries profusely to get blocked by The Pope and when she doesn't, agrees to commit a sin live on air. Which one? You'll have to listen to find out! If you want to commit a more tasteful sin, you can head on over to patreon.com/blockedparty, where $5/month gets you access to THREE bonus episodes every single month. This week, Chris James returns to the show to discuss Stefan getting blocked by Benny Johnson, and last week saw the release of our second Secret Party episode, as Nathan Hare joined us to break down some listener secrets.

Mo Amir (This is Vancolour) joins the show and brings a little local Vancouver flavour to the podcast, as he gets blocked by a local Member of Parliament despite them never interacting, even after the block when Mo tried to sort it out through official channels. It's a great look into what it means to host a local politics-focused TV show, and how even our government can get down in the muck with us Twitter weirdos. We start out away from our familiar medium by getting into TikTok and paring down our algorithms, and move from there into our favourite older technology: Maxim Magazine. We also chat about casino bands, we get a listener update on Every Buddy's, John's dad gets into Young Sheldon, we read Ryan Giggs' love poems, and Stefan introduces us to Real or Fake: Peep This Out edition. If you wanna peep some more content out, head on over to patreon.com/blockedparty, where $5/month gets you access to THREE bonus episodes every single month. Last week, our Sex and the City series continued with listener Molly, and this week, it's the triumphant return of SECRET PARTY, the special bonus episodes where we read your listener secrets.

It's a rare "BP Nights" version of the show as long-time bonus guest and first-time main episode guest Joshua Custodio (Wrestling Brain) joins the Blocked Boys to give us the inside scoop on why former WWE big man Ryback didn't just block Josh, but then immediately stole the meme he blocked him for. With all of us feeling the juice from the moon being in the sky, things descend quickly as Josh picks a tough opening for John and Stefan won't let John get the intro out, either. Once things finally do get rolling, we talk about the five-year anniversary of the Go Off Kings, John somehow talks his way into watching a Joey, and we get sent a truly cursed Jibbitz from a truly cursed Jibbitz dealer. Plus, we go deep on the odds on Kim Kardashian's new beau, Tony Jefferson, Antonio Brown, cops on Hinge, and John debuts a new impression. If you want to be our new beau, you can head on over to patreon.com/blockedparty, where $5/month gets you access to THREE bonus episodes every single month, This week, contest winner and listener Molly joins us in-studio all the way from London to discuss episode 4 of "And Just Like That" in our continuing bonus series, and we've got another Secret Party on the way very soon too.

Robin Hatch (musician) doesn't pick up the block from the man himself, but a tweet cheekily comparing her positive album review in the Guardian with a less-than-positive review of Kanye's album "Donda" in the same publication earns her a lot of unwanted attention from people who don't quite understand the joke, to the point where she even takes a phone call about it offline. This episode starts with some offline content too, as the Blocked Boys and Robin ponder stick families and Robin offers up yet another pronunciation of "decal" we bet you didn't see coming. From there, we get into Boston Pizza, Tim Hortons' weird "Dream" donuts, celebrity trading cards, the Trapt guy, and Robin gets into it with Selena Gomez's fanbase--which we learn are called "Selenators"--in an attempt to get blocked for the pod. If you want to be a part of our fanbase, you can donate to the show at patreon.com/blockedparty, where $5/month gets you access to THREE bonus episodes every single month. Last week, we posted a mailbag with our friend Derek, and we've got the continuation of our Sex and the City bonus series on the way. Plus!

Sexual Jumanji (Trill Withers Show) makes his debut appearance on the program after we had originally booked him two years ago but some Disney Adults made his life increasingly difficult. We get into that and his block by the Twitter Purchaser himself, Elon Musk, which results in a happy ending when Joe Rogan gets involved to get SexJ (aka "John Musk", Elon's brother) unblocked. That energy permeates the whole episode as we get into angry sports parents, Rudy Giuliani trading cards, and Producer Dan takes a picture of himself pooping. Plus! We get a very good homemade Jibbitz, a Seattle Mariners prospect gets put on the spot, and SexJ tells us about his foray into the world of ventriloquism. If you want to foray further into the world of Blocked Party, you can head on over to patreon.com/blockedparty, where $5/month gets you access to THREE bonus episodes every single month. Last week, it was a double dip as the VOD of our Minion Death Cult bonus went up as well as a great Hell Block episode with Will Weldon.

Sexual Jumanji is a co-host of the YouTube stream The Trill Withers Show, and you can find his sports gambling takes and more over on his Twitter at @MostCrucified.
Kelly Dwyer (basketball writer) fittingly gets blocked by one of the NBA's all-time leaders in blocks (both on the court and apparently off), for mostly just reporting that people were beefing with Kareem for one reason or another. If we seem a little off this episode, it's because we are forced to record early so Stefan can go on a picnic, which we break down in full detail here. We also get into full details on Canadian beers, upscale-casual restaurants, NHL draft picks, and there's an update on the poop in John's apartment building. Plus! Guitar tones, The Rehearsal, horrible viral tweets, and Kelly breaks down his terrible Twitter Likes situation. If you want a situation you'll definitely like, head on over to patreon.com/blockedparty, where $5/month gets you access to THREE bonus episodes every single month. This week, Will Weldon returns to the show as we get into Stefan's famous KFC block, and the VOD from last Friday's live show where we broke down horrible Memmos with the boys from Minion Death Cult will also go up. Plus we've got a great Discord, a massive back catalogue, and more, so check it out! Kelly Dwyer is a basketball writer whose Substack, The Second Arrangement, is available at tsa.substack.com. You can follow him on Twitter at @KDonhoops.
Stacey McLachlan (comedian) returns after a too-long absence from the show to tell us about having to block an Instagram/TikTok dancer for moving in a weird way. Not in general, just weird to Stacey. And we pair that with a very grim listener block to really balance it all out. That's not all the listeners contribute this week, as we get a ton of new Jibbitz for the #JibbitzChallenge, from some more horrible Friends ones to a Yoda one Stefan seems to actually love unironically. We also get into virtual pets, Babygram, hot tubs, Alan Dershowitz's book feedback, the tasteless Fox Sports baseball promo, and Stacey regales us with the crazy story of how her and her husband used a professional wrestling event to name their baby. If you want to contribute to our baby (this show), you can head on over to patreon.com/blockedparty, where $5/month gets you THREE bonus episodes every single month. Last week, Rachel Schaefer joined us for a fun mailbag, and coming up this Friday, it's another Patrons-only Zoom show as our friends in Minion Death Cult are going to join us for a look at the very Canadian version of Cameo, Memmo.

You can follow Stacey on Instagram at @stacey_mclachlan.
Malik Elassal (comedian) joins the show for the first time to tell us about a friend's ex who went rogue to start the pandemic and forced Malik into blocking her after some very strange comments regarding Malik getting COVID early in the pandemic. After we learn that Malik's day job is as a mattress delivery man, we discuss the logistics of delivering mattresses and Stefan and John dive into their days working as manual laborers. Then, a discussion of what restaurants had to deal with the "rats in the food" urban myths leads to a reappearance of Joey on the program, much to John's chagrin. Plus! Malik's Instagram feed is populated with gym guys, Maya Rudolph loses her mind on Hot Ones, and Stefan finds a wholesome, Megan Thee Stallion-appreciating TikTok. If you want to appreciate more of our wholesome content, you can head on over to patreon.com/blockedparty, where $5/month gets you access to THREE bonus episodes every single month. Last week, we kept our new "And Just Like That" watchalong series going with a great guest appearance from Cait Raft, and this week, it's a mailbag with a returning Rachel Schaefer. Plus, we've got merch discounts and live show discounts which will come in handy very soon, as Blocked Party's Top 3 Weekend featuring live BP, Not Even a Show, and Go Off Kings comes to Vancouver this fall. More details to come! Malik Elassal is a comedian who promises to start doing the stand-up videos with the little captions very soon, and you can follow him on Twitter and Instagram at @malikelassal.
Jesse Thorn (Jordan, Jesse, Go!, Bullseye) joins the show with a very original Block Tale, a first in show history, as he gets blocked by the former head writer of The Late Show with David Letterman for making her sit in traffic. It's a true California Block Tale and in true California fashion, we spend a great deal of the show talking about frozen treats, from Jesse's high-end home ice machine to the best selections to come from the ice cream truck. John also gets roasted for a horrendous analogy, Stefan bucks the trend by being the one to talk about nu-metal with the Alien Ant Farm discourse, and we learn about scromiting. Plus, dogs on roofs, Paul F. Tompkins, and Antiques Roadshow. Jesse Thorn is a podcaster who is the founder of Maximum Fun and can be heard on "Jordan, Jesse, Go!" and "Judge John Hodgman" on a weekly basis. You can also hear his show, "Bullseye", on NPR.

In lieu of flowers, the Nemeroff family has asked that you make a donation to Planned Parenthood, which was one of the last things Nick did before he passed.
Ginny Hogan (writer/comedian) returns to the show in the midst of her "eat pray love" journey, a 3-week trip to Vancouver Island that ended up with her being too bored. So lucky for us, she decided to head to Vancouver for some standup shows and a visit to BPHQ, as she joins us in-studio and we learn all about her trip, from teaching herself to drive on some of Canada's gnarliest highways to an upcoming wedding in Alaska. And that's not all, as the Jibbitz Challenge begins in earnest with a 3-D printed homemade Jibbitz that may prove to be the best one we get, to a "scrunchie" one that absolutely looks like a butthole. Plus, we chat about Lucky Charms, scheduled tweets, District Fair bake-offs, group chat fails, and Ginny gets blocked by Senate candidate/ghoul Blake Masters for an innocuous foul. If you want more innocuous content (that is also somewhat foul) then head on over to our Patreon at patreon.com/blockedparty, where $5/month gets you access to THREE bonus episodes every single month. Last week, our video bonus episode with Dan O'Sullivan went live as we introduced him to some awful Dragon's Den and Bar Rescue content, and we go back to the awful well this week as Ben Flores returns for a Canadian Education episode about "Open Mike" with Mike Bullard.

You can follow her on Twitter at @ginnyhogan_.
Rachel Brodsky (writer) joins the show and immediately proves herself to be one of our smartest guests ever, as she comes up with the perfect answer to "what is the opposite of corn?", helps us with our lacking musical knowledge, and has the rare Block Tale that actually provides a moral and some genuine prescriptive advice. But as always, don't let all of that fool you, as we still drag Rachel way down into the mud with us as we read a Blocked Party Secret that involves us talking about pissing in a tent, a Facebook friend of John's finds a pet rat, and Dan eats Doritos for dinner. Plus! Stefan gives us an update on Jerry Saltz's coffee situation, Rachel introduces us to the new Nerf mascot, and Tim Allen takes some kids to Disneyland. If you want to go to podcasting Disneyland, you can head on over to patreon.com/blockedparty, where $5/month gets you access to THREE bonus episodes every dang month!

To get updates on all of her writing, you can follow her on Twitter at @rachelbrods and Instagram at @rebrods.
Chris Locke (comedian, Evil Men) returns to the show with a Block Tale that we are all too familiar with: someone you haven't talked to in a decade gets weird in the DMs all of a sudden. That comes off of the back of a discussion about how the internet in general has us bummed lately, and we try to think of ways to return to the halcyon days of being online. It's not all bad though, as we talk horror movies, our emotions, and John's recent return from his honeymoon. Plus, John finally gets a chance to hit back at all the AI Art, Stefan shows us a video of a Rottweiler throwing up an interesting object (which leads to more...interesting discussion), we become shock jocks, and we introduce the Jibbitz Challenge. If you want to accept the challenge of listening to more BP content, you can head on over to patreon.com/blockedparty, where $5/month gets you access to THREE bonus episodes every single month.

When John's away, Stefan and Dan will play… and boy, did they ever. Along with co-host DB and returning guest Jon Hendren, the boys discuss the insane shit they've made with Midjourney AI, Jon's blood clot scare, and what sort of huge spiders they've got in Australia. As well, Jon lists a murderer's row of celebs he's been blocked by (and isn't entirely sure why). Plus, John calls in from his Hawaiian honeymoon to see how the episode is going… and he's not exactly surprised with the results. If you want more results you won't be surprised by, head on over to our Patreon at patreon.com/blockedparty, where $5/month gets you access to THREE bonus episodes every single month. This week, it's the return of our series where we review the next Sex and the City, and this time we'll be joined by our friend Howell Dawdy to break down the extremely weird funeral of Mr. Big.

Bryan Quinby (Street Fight Radio) returns to the show to run through an important event in BP history: John and Becca getting married! Becca hops on the show for a little bit to discuss the night that was, from the lovely time we had to Stefan's new suit to Dan almost passing out at dinner. Bryan regales us with the story of his wedding as well, and it's perhaps a bit more wild than John's (not surprisingly). But we've got plenty of non-matrimony content too! Once Becca leaves, we find time to get into legal drugs, the Mormon tradition of "dirty soda", Joc Pederson's fantasy football dispute, and Stefan gets a slap on the wrist from EA. Plus, Bryan gets blocked by a shock jock and we run through our stupidest-ever injuries. If you want to feel less stupid (or more, I guess), you can support the show over at patreon.com/blockedparty, where $5/month gets you access to THREE bonus episodes every single month. Last week was a busy one as we opened up the mailbag with Molly Lambert and posted the VOD of John's Bachelor Party with a slew of amazing guests including the YKS guys, Chris James, and Tom and Demi.

Rachel Feltman (author) joins the show to talk about that frightening yet seminal moment in every 11 year-old's life: when they have their first online crush reciprocated and then immediately panic and block them. Rachel runs us through the whole tale as we revisit summer camp all over again. Speaking of seminal life moments, the countdown is on for John and Becca's wedding and we discuss Dan and Stefan's fashion choices for the upcoming affair and wonder who might be the wedding's "fashion wild card" of the evening. You might be surprised by the answer! We also get into Crocs charms, wedding gifts, niche TikTok, burlesque, and Stefan introduces us to a great moment in sports commentary history. If you want to be a part of more great moments in history, you can support the show by becoming a patron over at patreon.com/blockedparty.

After 3 failed attempts, we finally get Alistair Ogden (comedian) on the show to discuss one of our more involved Block Tales of all-time, as he takes an Instagram scammer WAY further into the weeds than they likely ever expected to go. And you know that we go all the way into the weeds too, as Producer Dan is away for this episode and the boys have to try and operate the boards themselves. It turns out to be a successful operation, as the episode sounds great and we feel great as we discuss food poisoning (our own this time), crying, Don Cherry's podcast, and we consider radical leg-lengthening surgery. John also talks about the commercial he was supposed to do for A&W, Alistair briefs us on his wholesome online uncle, and Stefan helps John go viral with a post type he's talked about on the show many times before. If you want to more tips on how to go viral, you can check out our Patreon over at patreon.com/blockedparty, where $5/month gets you access to THREE bonus episodes every month.

Tin Lorica (comedian) joins the show to tell us about the time their roommate just simply had to be ghosted, and John reveals his thoughts on the story and potentially blows the whole thing wide open for Tin. And that's not the only spot we blow up this week, as we go super long talking about who gets to keep the cats in a breakup, Boston Pizza, picking the right anime for John, and the weird Eminem/Minions thing. Plus, we get into Tin's newfound presence on dating apps, great insults on Twitter, the best excuses, and Stefan wins $1 million on Howell Dawdy's show. If you want to feel like you just won a million bucks, you can head on over to patreon.com/blockedparty, where donating just $5/month will get you access to a massive back catalogue of bonus content that will leave you feeling wonderful for weeks.

Aaron Read (comedian) joins the show to tell us about a time he got blocked for politely asking a Vancouver bagel shop to change their notoriously bad work environment. Why change anything when you can just block people who complain? We find their Glassdoor reviews and go deep on that as well as DVD Easter Eggs, Mad Magazine parodies, and we eat some intense Dutch licorice. Plus, we get into "rise and grind" Instagrams, tarts, Aaron meets Peep This Out, and John wins 10 pounds of fresh lobster. If you want 10 pounds of fresh content, head on over to patreon.com/blockedparty, where $5/month gets you access to THREE bonus episodes every single month. This week, Maddy Kelly joins us for the first episode of "Stefan the City: And John's Like That", the start of our quest to watch all 10 episodes of the new Sex and the City show.

You can see him every Sunday in Vancouver at the Fox Cabaret for The Sunday Service and you can follow him on Twitter at @freddykuerig and on Instagram @clear.dog.food.
John's out this week which means Stefan's in charge. Which means the episode might not get uploaded. But assuming it does, Stefan is joined by guest host Jesse Farrar (YKS, Go Off Kings) and their friend Greg (@weedguy420boner) as they discuss a guy's big poop, try to contact the spirit of Paul Walker on TikTok, and listen to Producer Dan fart into his fart mic. Greg also regales us with a Block Tale concerning Weird Twitter and the BTK Killer. Will Stefan remember all the segment names? Will Jesse ever come back on the show? And will Stefan remember to submit the episode description to John in time? All this and a guy's big poop on this week's ep! If you don't want to step in a big pile of poop, you should help out the show by donating to the Blocked Boys at patreon.com/blockedparty, where $5/month gets you access to THREE bonus episodes every single month.

Greg has a Twitter also, which you can follow at @weedguy420boner.
Christine Bortolin (comedian) returns to the show for a third time and in a weird role reversal is she is in studio but Stefan isn't, as he hosts the show remotely from Ontario. His connection is poor but his takes are strong as Christine shows us what it's like to run a music venue's social media when a musician's fans get weird. But it's ok because we get weird as hell too, talking about cheese curds, Brazilian butt lifts, gravity bongs, white-out, and marking papers. Plus, Christine tells us all about her days writing anime fan fiction, Stefan guests on Howell Dawdy's Fast Track, we discuss our favourite niche meme accounts, and the Blocked Boys become the focus of a podcast that makes fun of other podcasts. If you want to focus more on THIS podcast, you can head on over to patreon.com/blockedparty, where $5/month gets you access to THREE bonus episodes every single month. This week, it's a special John and Becca bonus episode, as they answer your questions about love, sex, and relationships. Mostly about their own relationship, really, but it's a good time.

Christine Bortolin is a comedian, writer, and director whose work you can find by checking out her Instagram at @theonlybortolin.
It's a double dose of different on the pod this week as Stefan attends to a family situation so our friend Chris James fills in as a guest host, and we have our first-ever poet on the program, as one of Canada's finest poets, Shane Koyczan, joins us on the show. The episode starts with a poetic bang as Shane gives John easily the most intense "Start the Party!" directions he's ever received, and it only goes on from there as we wonder at just how Shane, who is a devoted listener, even got into Blocked Party in the first place. That aside, the Block Tale absolutely delivers as Shane encounters a fan on Facebook who writes one of the more bizarre screeds in the comments we've ever seen on this show and Chris and John give a dramatic reenactment of it. We also get into returning to live shows, writing poetry during the pandemic, and our usual nonsense like curling video games, a great license plate, terrible stadium food, and Shane introduces us to the "Democracy Manifest" incident. If you also know your Judo well, you can head on over to patreon.com/blockedparty to THROW us a few bucks (Judo joke) and support the program. In return for that support, you can get wonderful things like the THREE bonus episodes we do every single month, like the Mailbag coming your way this week. Plus we've got the famed $100 Club which gets you access to secret bonus eps, merch discounts, a super-exclusive Discord channel, and a Cameo from Stefan and John. It's a delight, so check it out.

You can follow him on Twitter at @koyczan and on Instagram at @shane_koyczan.
John and Stefan return from John's bachelor party weekend and lived to tell the tale, as we welcome Cody Johnston (Some More News) onto the show to tell HIS tale, about being blocked by John Mayer on Tumblr of all places. We get into Cody's recurring bit on Jay May, as he calls him, and how it led to the eventual block, as well as how it spawned a lot of camaraderie in his DMs from Mayer fans and haters alike. And of course we talk about the most low-key bachelor party in history, as John and Stefan recount the tales of playing FIFA, poker, and Biñho, and the weirdness of their Air BnB, which was essentially a repurposed wedding venue that was set up when they arrived to host a wedding. Plus! Machine Gun Kelly, weirdo bowling animations, stealing food, and the greatest sports announcer moment in recent memory. If you want to enjoy more great moments, please head on over to patreon.com/blockedparty to support the show AND receive THREE bonus episodes every single month. Last week, we released a hangout episode with Tom Walker and Demi Lardner, and this month will see the release of our new bonus series where we cover the new Sex and the City show.

Sarah Pappalardo (Reductress) joins the show to tell us about where they do most of their trolling: Facebook. And on that Facebook? A former member of their queer friend circle at college who has gone rogue as a transphobic anti-vaxxer and who blocks Sarah, only to unblock them so they can continue fighting. The rest of the episode is much less feisty though, as we talk about being a cat parent, the weirdo "you should own a house by now" tweets, insane hockey names, Jeff Foxworthy, microwaves, and Sarah reveals the insane podcast she'd like to start with their mom. If you want more of THIS insane podcast, you can head on over to patreon.com/blockedparty, where $5/month gets you access to THREE bonus episodes every single month, including this week, a very special hangout episode as we get together with Tom Walker and Demi Lardner.

Paul Bae (The Big Loop, Black Tapes) returns to the show to a surprise when Producer Dan informs him that he has actually BLOCKED Dan on Twitter! It's the first time we've ever had the Blocker and the Blockee meet face-to-face, and it turns out Dan found himself on a blocklist. Paul runs us through why he used a blocklist in the first place, and you'll have to tune in to see if Paul shows ultimate character and unblocks Dan live on the show. Elsewhere, we revisit our past episode hijinks with Paul, as John gives Paul an update on his ass, and Stefan rejigs his previous top 3, where he said he would most want tomato paste if he were trapped after an earthquake.

The boys are back in town, and this time that's quite literal, as Derek and dril are in Vancouver to join the Blocked Boys live in BPHQ. And this episode is about what you'd expect from this foursome, as an innocent conversation about hotpot turns to Rule 34, where we learn it has a comments section (bad) and what the top 10 searches on the site are (worse). After a lengthy discussion, we move onto monkey movies, Eminem lyrics, saline injections, reply guys, and dril gets blocked by Dog the Bounty Hunter for saying he would like to breastfeed him. If you want to get fed more of this sweet content, head on over to patreon.com/blockedparty, where $5/month gets you THREE bonus episodes every single month. This week, Lauren L. Walker returns to the show for a Canadian Education Programme episode, and this FRIDAY, John and Stefan are gonna be streaming for 6 hours straight in the first-ever Blocked Slumber Party for WAVAW. We're gonna be playing some fun games and hanging out with some fun friends, raising money for a great cause and holding a raffle where the grand prize is getting to GUEST ON THIS SHOW! Cool. Derek and dril can be followed on Twitter, and look out for their new show on NBC, coming in 18 years.
Maddy Kelly (comedian/writer) returns to the show with another very special reply guy, one who stoops to finding her email address to be unnecessarily critical and then extremely weird very, very quickly. It's a fun episode of the show that starts out sweet as Stefan tries to convince Maddy to play Elden Ring and we talk about creating a vision board for BP and vegetable gardens. It also gets literally sweet as we discuss the Dutch Bros insane drink menu. But, somewhat predictably given what has happened the 171 episodes before this, things manage to turn nasty as Stefan's social media update gets us talking about sex talks with our parents and Maddy reveals she has some very special skills. Plus, we weigh in on the wheels vs. doors debate and it gets very heated. If you want to get more heated, you can head on over to patreon.com/blockedparty, where $5/month gets you access to THREE bonus episodes every single month. This week, Drew from Globe Hell joins us for a beautiful mailbag episode, and later this month, we are going live again in support of WAVAW with the Blocked Slumber Party, as Stefan and John are gonna stream for 6 straight hours on Friday, March 18th. It all starts at 6 pm PST and you won't wanna miss it! Maddy Kelly is a comedian and writer whose new podcast, "Let's Make a Sci-Fi!" is available wherever you get your pods.

Sweeps Month comes to a rousing conclusion as Jamie Loftus (comedian/writer) returns to become best friends with Tony Hawk (just as we are) by being blocked by none other than the Olympics themselves. Jamie actually tracks down the IOC headquarters in Switzerland to try and get her Twitter account back in a valiant Block Tale and Stefan gets thrown back to his mock draft-ruining days with the listener Block Tale. After the longest intro ever, Jamie tells us about why she had to miss Trivia Party last week: because she was attending Ghost Church. We learn all about channelling spirits as Stefan and John decide to get into the slime business, and Jamie learns about the two ghosts that follow her around constantly. Plus, we wonder about the existence of a beach plum, Jamie wants a Nicole Kidman AMC ad supercut, and Stefan and John have weirdly symbiotic tweets about Elden Ring. If you want to feel more in symbiosis with the pod, head on over to patreon.com/blockedparty, where $5/month gets you access to THREE bonus episodes every single month. Last week was a big one, as we released a Canadian Education episode on Matt Good with former fun. lead singer Nate Ruess, and the aforementioned Trivia Party makes its triumphant return with Branson Reese joining us. We've got lots of great stuff planned for March, plus merch discounts, an exclusive Discord, and more! Jamie Loftus is a comedian and writer whose weekly podcast, The Bechdel Cast, can be heard wherever you get your pods. You can also seek out her three limited-run series, "My Year in MENSA", "Lolita Podcast", and "Aack Cast" and keep an eye out for her upcoming series on the spiritualist movement later in the spring.

It took 170 episodes, but Michael Hale (Your Kickstarter Sucks) finally joins us for a main episode and...let's be honest. If you're a fan of this show, or YKS, or hopefully both, you know exactly what you're getting here. It's John's worst nightmare as Stefan and DB run roughshod all over this thing, introducing John to a host of online freaks and scoundrels. But it's a blast, as we take a look at past guest Jon Hendren's surprisingly robust scoring system for these weird reply guys, Stefan remembers a classic online moment, and one of the freaks fulfills a special request. We do get into some "normal" (?) stuff too I guess, as Mike gets blocked by one of the guys from Bowling for Soup for saying he died in a Murphy bed (you know, normal stuff), Stefan finds an insane movie trailer, and we discover the joy of Quebeçois Boomhauer. If you want to discover more joy, you can head on over to patreon.com/blockedparty, where $5/month gets you access to THREE bonus episodes every single month, including a special double dose of bonus goodness coming this week, as Nate Ruess joins us for a Canadian Education episode on alternative rock weirdo Matt Good, and Branson Reese takes part in Trivia Party with our venerable quizmaster, Meg Walls. Plus we've got merch discounts, a great Discord, and more, so head on over to Patreon to support the beautiful Blocked Boys. Michael Hale is a podcaster with Jesse Farrar, and together they host Your Kickstarter Sucks, a weekly rundown of the worst Kickstarter has to offer. He can be found on Twitter at @dogboner.
Chris Locke (comedian, Evil Men pod) is BACK and he's gotten some people upset with him online for having takes against the very stupid Freedom Convoy here in Canada or whatever dumb thing they're calling it now. Luckily we don't have much other dumb stuff on the show, outside of the usual dumb stuff like getting Chris to look at questionable things and him rebranding as a guy who will refuse to wipe until further notice. We also talk the Puppy Bowl, Ghostbusters, 2-man luge, the viral nu-metal tweet, and Jonathan Allen's insane dream dinner guests. If you want to feel like you're our guest for dinner, head on over to patreon.com/blockedparty, where $5/month gets you access to THREE bonus episodes every single month. Last week, it was a mailbag with Producer Dan and this week, our first-ever "Sexy Six" bonus episode, EXCLUSIVE to $8 and $100 Club donors, will be released. It's called "Secret Party" and we'll be reading YOUR secrets live on-air with Darcy Michael. You simply do not want to miss it. We also have merch now, including an exclusive Producer Dan design that's only available for the next week, so hit up merch.blockedparty.com for all your merch needs (plus donors get a discount!). Chris Locke is a comedian and one of the three hosts of the Evil Men podcast. Follow him for details about his new comedy special out this spring, on Twitter at @chrislockeworld and Instagram at @chrislockefun.
It's Sweeps Month, baby! This year, it's all fan favourites all month and we start by bringing back one of our faves who hasn't appeared on a full main episode in over two years, Cait Raft! Fresh off of their star turn as "Jonathan Van Mouse" on the new Jonathan Van Ness show, we talk about cartoon mice as Stefan and Cait ponder whether or not houses in the 40s actually built holes in the wall and doors for mice. The rest of the episode is not that stupid (but it gets close) as we discuss The Simpsons, VIP movie theatres, weird influencer posts, strawberry candies, Family Feud, and Cait brings the heat in another wild top 3. If you want even more wild content that's sweeter than strawberry candy, head on over to patreon.com/blockedparty, where $5/month gets you access to THREE bonus episodes every month. This week, it's a BP Mailbag and then the rest of the month gets wild as we bring back Trivia Party, Nate Ruess rejoins the show, and our first-ever "Sexy Six" bonus episode gets launched for our $8 and above patrons, where we read and analyze your secrets. It's truly the best month to get on board as a patron and you won't want to miss any of it! Cait Raft is a story producer and comedian who can currently be heard on "Getting Curious" with Jonathan Van Ness as Jonathan Van Mouse and other assorted voiceover roles.
