Delightful Stream of Consciousness Tangents

Will listening to this podcast trigger your anxiety? Probably. Is it worth it? Yes!

Hiwwwww ,

Finally a tasteful comedy show!

The X-mas special made me pause and catch my breath from the laughter.

I would like the lords a leaping.

Thanks Blake.

Also I thrust my mid section whenever the theme song plays. I can’t stop.

JRE for MEN

I used to have to listen to multiple Joe Rogans a day to get the level of insight Blake’s Takes provides in a single ep. The vibe of the show can be described as somewhere between Clint Eastwood at the 2012 RNC and Andy Cohen in Times Square on New Year’s Eve. At the show’s core, Mr. Wexler thrives as a dynamic storyteller with an obscure Philly sports reference to share. Like Teri Gross on a particularly heavy microdose, he occasionally conducts what could be considered a form of interview. One can not review Blake without admiring his legs. When he talks about doing calf raises he is talking about baby cows.
