It's a bit shocking that it's taken us 87 episodes to get here, but folks, we finally have the big man himself, the damn Cheeto-in-Chief, in our sights, as our guest, David Roth (writer, Deadspin) joins us to talk about the time he got blocked by Donald Trump. It's a fantastic Block Tale driven by Trump's own idiocy and a worthy first-time appearance on the pod for the POTUS. But don't worry, we're well-aware we are also full of our own idiocy, as the Blocked Boys find time to get into Witch Twitter, Tom Cruise, cognitive testing, the viral mummy, the 2003 film Biker Boyz, and Stefan is still locked out of his Twitter after Friday's blue checkmark fiasco.
If you no longer want to be locked out, you can subscribe to our Patreon at https://patreon.com/blockedparty, where $5/month gets you access to THREE bonus episodes every single month. John finally ate his Big Mac this month and we filmed it, Michael Hale and Jesse Farrar from YKS joined us for a mailbag, and we're introducing some brand-new bonus content: The Guest Letter! Previously, $4/month got you newsletters from Stefan and John and $8/month got you those newsletters plus the bonus episodes. But we decided it wasn't enough! Starting in August, for those same donation tiers, you'll also get newsletters written by guests! Some will be high-profile writers, others will be budding writers from our own community, it's gonna be great. Start your morning with a BP Newsletter, why don't you? Plus we still have two great audio bonuses coming in July, including a Hell Block with fan fave Adam Christie coming this week! It's all here! Subscribe now!
