One of our most requested guests, Dave Weigel (Washington Post) is finally able to make an appearance on our show after getting the approval from the higher-ups, and it does not disappoint. Despite writing about politics and all the blocks that come with that, we dig into one of Dave's weirder blocks: Amy Schumer, who blocked him for saying Trainwreck wasn't all that good. The episode is very good though, as we obviously talk politics with Dave, like gerrymandering and the Tea Party and other important political things like the GTA remasters, Letterboxd, Bone Bone, and competitive video gaming. We also have a brief POD Kast crossover as Dave gets excited over John mentioning 311 and John introduces Dave and Stefan to the concept of a "brodel".

 

If you want to brodel down with us, you can donate to the show at patreon.com/blockedparty, where $5/month gets you access to THREE bonus episodes every month. This past week, we released our third episode of Paranoia, the dystopian RPG, and it's our most unhinged and funny one yet. We're joined by Carlos Maza, Carla Mah, and Racquel Belmonte for what is a crazy time every time out, and this one is no exception. We also just posted the VOD of our live Family Feud episode with Jesse and Mike from YKS and former Jeopardy! champs Seth Wilson and Alex Schmidt, available at any donor level. PLUS! We have ad-free episodes and a Discord and it's all great, so check it out.
