The Blocked Boys are back, baby! In studio, that is. With the COVID restrictions in BC allowing social gatherings of up to 6, the BBs get together in the BPHQ Studio for the first time since March, and we haven't missed a beat. Well, we think, anyway. And who better to celebrate our return with than one of our most popular guests ever, the returning Alex Goldman (Reply All), who treats us to a lovely Block Tale as he gets blocked by some right-wing account called, and we are not making this up, @Zappin_Liberals. The BBs also have some time to talk childhood memories, New York Times op-eds, Boogie Cousins' best dunk, and the most cathartic moment of the Black Lives Matter/Defund the Police movement thus far.
If you're in search of more cathartic moments, you can donate to the show at https://patreon.com/blockedparty, where your money will get you access to three bonus episodes every month. This month, we've got a Cameo episode coming up AND John will finally film his tribute to Peep This Out!, as he tries his first Big Mac ever. Conversely, you could ignore all that and donate to a worthy cause in support of the Black Lives Matter movement, or a women's shelter in your area. If you have enough money to support those causes and us, wonderful. If you don't, I think we all know where your money should go, and it isn't to us.
Alex Goldman is the co-host of the podcast Reply All and you can look for his new project, The Scaredy Cat Horror Show, out now on Spotify. He can be followed on Twitter at @AGoldmund.
