Claire McNear (author, The Ringer) joins us for a lesson in rookie journalism, as she gets blocked by MC Hammer for some, shall we say, unprofessional practices. Block: Hammer Time! Given Claire's new book is about Jeopardy!, the Blocked Boys take the opportunity to talk all things Jeopardy! with her, including John's Jeopardy! tweets, the show's audition process, the terrible anecdotes, and Celebrity Jeopardy!. And of course, the BBs still find time to talk their usual BS, as they get into the monoliths, #StoptheSteal, Pokémon, the apocalypse, and John tells the story about his tough day in a ninth-grade classroom this week.
If you want to forget about your tough days, you can head on over to https://patreon.com/blockedparty, where $5/month gets you all the BP business you can handle! This week, we have the next Cullen the Herd out, as John talks about getting blocked from his own MMA group chat, and we just announced a fantastic live show coming up to celebrate the season, as Caroline Goldfarb will be joining us to watch the Whistler Season 1 finale on December 19th. Your donation also gets you access to our Discord, our entire back catalogue of episodes, and we have five newsletters we publish every month for a little extra dough. It's all there and it's all wonderful, so check it out!
