Twitter Genius/Idiot Stefan Heck and comedian John Cullen invite guests on the program to talk about the who and the how of getting blocked on social media. From celebrities to jilted ex-lovers, every block has a story and we’re here to get to the bottom of it.
We made it! We couldn't think of a better way to celebrate a century of Blocked Party episodes than by bringing a bunch of our favourite people on to PARTY (get it?) with us, and boy did we get spoiled! First things first, the Blocked Boys get absolutely jacked on the sugar-intense Canada Juice and we feel the rush with Cait Raft (comedian, Hot and Rich) as we talk about Stefan's new VR game idea and shitting his pants. Then, we're joined by Chris Locke (comedian, Happy Good) for an absolutely wild update on his life, as we learn that he was involved in a pretty crazy incident as a child that's affected him in a very surprising and positive way.
From there, it's Adam Christie (comedian) time, as we dig into our social media updates and learn how two girls' opinions on fruit snacks have converted Adam to Christianity, and John finally gets a dunk in on Stefan. And you know that we couldn't do a Block Tale without one of Twitter's finest pests, with Chris James joining us to give us the full story on how he's been blocked by Seb Gorka two different times and to give us a positive update, an "Anti-Block Tale", if you will, with Ken Marino.
And it's Episode 100, so we couldn't just leave you with a single top 3, no, we brought in two guests for two very different Top 3s. First, we're joined by Racquel Belmonte (improviser, Dragon Prince) for another of our horniest top 3s ever, and then Becca joins us to close things out with a very on-brand top 3 for the Blocked Boys, a way of reminiscing that only we could be capable of. And make sure to stay all the way to the end of the episode for a special surprise.
If you want even more special surprises, why not donate to the show in honour of 100 episodes over at https://patreon.com/blockedparty, where $5/month gets you access to THREE bonus episodes every month. We've been a bit late on bonus content this month, so we are releasing FOUR episodes in the next two weeks, including the making and drinking of the aforementioned Canada Juice, CanCon Live! with Jesse and Mike from YKS, our third instalment of BPD&D with Branson Reese and Jamie Loftus, AND John and Stefan are going to relive some of the show's best moments in an episode we're calling "100 Episodes, 100 Memories". We probably won't remember 100 things, because we're dumb. But anyway, support the show! We love you.

Maddy Kelly v. A Special Reply Guy
Maddy Kelly (comedian) joins the show to tell us about a very unique "reply guy" situation, where she replies back and he isn't quite sure how to handle it. Maddy offers a lot of other great advice on this episode, like how to properly manage your Instagram, how to slide into her DMs, how to go viral on TikTok, and how to order at McDonald's if you're a hot girl. Elsewhere, the Blocked Boys reveal their usual amount of knowledge (very little) as we discuss hot mascots, monocles, manicured lawns, Putt-Putt games, mayors in Korn masks, and the Poplitics girl getting diagnosed with COVID.
And hey! It's the Centennial Celebration Month here at BP, and we are celebrating our 100th episode in style, as we've got FOUR bonus episodes coming your way at https://patreon.com/blockedparty. This month, we are gonna drink that vile Canada Juice, Stefan and John are gonna reminisce about 100 episodes of the show, we're gonna have our third instalment of BPD&D, and the YKS Boys are gonna join us for a BPTV episode where we get them to take a look at a bunch of CanCon. You won't wanna miss it, and you can access it all for $5/month over on our Patreon!
And if you want some more comedy content, John's new album, "Long Stories for No Reason", is out THIS FRIDAY! October 16th. Mark your calendars, it's gonna be a good time and it'll be available everywhere you get your music and comedy.

Cole Hersch v. Tobey Maguire
Cole Hersch (writer, Podcast But Outside) joins the show with one of the earliest-in-life Block Tales we've had, as he got blocked by Spider-Man himself, Tobey Maguire, on AOL Instant Messenger when he was 11. It's a saga with many twists and turns and leaves us with a mystery that will need some experts to solve. The rest of the show leaves no mystery though, as the Blocked Boys are eager to shake off their good behaviour from last week and it gets wild early and often. The BBs start with some more Shark Tank/Dragons Den talk as Stefan pitches a new hangover cure and Cole pitches a new version of the show entirely, and that leads to a discussion of new condoms for different body parts. Cole then tells us the story of how he went viral pitching a new mascot to Saddleback College, John gets introduced to a cursed TikTok, and Stefan's social media update gets so intense it leads to a very special surprise at the end of the episode you won't wanna miss.
If you want more fun surprises, you can head on over to https://patreon.com/blockedparty, where $5/month gets you access to THREE bonus episodes every month. Of course, this is the Blocked Party Centennial Celebration Month and we are going all out. John and Stefan are going to finally make and drink the cursed Canada Juice, we are going to have Jesse and Mike on for a LIVE BPTV episode with exclusively Can(adian)Con(tent), and our D&D series with Branson Reese and Jamie Loftus continues! We have some other fun surprises planned for the month you won't wanna miss so check it out!
And hey, John's new full-length comedy album, "Long Stories for No Reason" is out next Friday, October 16th on Comedy Records. Look for it on Spotify, Apple Music, or anywhere else you get your music.

Jemele Hill v. Travis Tritt
Who knew the Kentucky Derby VIP section could be a source of consternation? We learn just how, as Jemele Hill (The Atlantic, Jemele Hill is Unbothered) tells us the story of her positive meeting with country star Travis Tritt over mint juleps and how it didn't seem to matter to him later on, as he blocked Jemele for having opposing political views (we think). Speaking of politics, this episode doesn't shy away, as we get into what the mentions of someone with 1.3 million followers looks like, how Trump's divisiveness has affected social media, and how the goalposts for how a President should act are constantly shifting. But hey, we're the Blocked Boys and we also find time for silly stuff like Doritos, 2009 Twitter, old class photos, and we dig into Vancouver's Da Vinky Twins.
If you want to dig into some more Vancouver content, you can do so by donating to Vancouver's own at http://patreon.com/blockedparty, where $5/month gets you access to THREE bonus episodes every month. This month was a doozy as we released the second edition of BP D&D with Jamie Loftus and Branson Reese, we did another all-Cameo bonus episode with Taylor Lorenz, and a great mailbag with Lydia Burrell. Plus, we've got our Centennial Celebration coming up next month with tons of sweet bonus goodies coming your way, so don't delay! You'll also get access to our entire back catalogue and our super sweet Discord server, one of the best deals in podcasting, baby!

Sarah Ramos & Caroline Goldfarb v. Jonathan "Foodgod" Cheban
It's only the second time ever that the BP Studios have been graced with two guests on one main episode, but it's a special occasion as we have Sarah Ramos (actor, filmmaker) and Caroline Goldfarb (comedian, writer) join us to tell us all about their new show, The Renner Files, and their block by the man who is famous for being friends with Kim Kardashian. It's a shameless Block Tale that will go down in the annals of show history as one of the best, and this episode is one of the best too, an "all-timer" in Stefan's words, as the Blocked Boys talk Peep This Out facemasks, getting old, and we learn more about how Stefan ended Jeremy Renner's vanity app. Plus, we get into the very upsetting RBG tributes, fizzy drinks, wet eggs in a bag, and Becca gets her very own theme song.
Speaking of theme songs, our bonus episodes have some pretty amazing ones, and you can hear them (and the episodes) at https://patreon.com/blockedparty, where $5/month gets you access to THREE bonus episodes every month. Last week, we released our latest edition of Word Up! with Taylor Lorenz, where we delve into the world of TikTok Cameos, and this week, we have the continuation of our BPD&D series, as Branson Reese and Jamie Loftus join us for a wonderful adventure in a mythical city. Plus, that $5 gets you access to our top-secret Discord server, all of our back catalogue of bonus episodes, and celebrations next month for our 100th episode that you won't wanna miss.
Sarah Ramos is an actor and filmmaker who can be followed on Twitter at @SarahRamos and on Instagram at @SarahERamos. Caroline Goldfarb is a comedian and writer who you can find on Twitter at @hairoline and on Instagram at @OfficialSeanPenn. Together, they host The Renner Files, a six-part podcast about the Jeremy Renner app that launches this Thursday, September 24th.
Jack Allison v. Hoarse Wisperer
It's here. The most requested Block Tale in the history of the show is finally here, as Jack Allison (JackAM, Struggle Session) joins the Blocked Boys to talk about the Hoarse Wisperer saga. We get all the gritty details from their initial dealings with each other to Jack finding out the anonymous centrist horse's real identity to the epic conclusion, where Jack raises $125k for Bernie Sanders under the guise of Mr. HW and then trademarks the Hoarse Wisperer title, forcing him to swap his Twitter handle. It's an online story for the ages and one built for this program, 95 episodes young. And we don't stop there, as we find time to talk about Denis Leary's Pumpkin Spice tweet, the Chris Evans mishap, John getting DMCA'ed, Jack impersonating a high school quarterback, and Stefan pays John $140 to watch a Badlands Chugs video.
If you also like paying for the content you're dying to hear, you can head on over to https://patreon.com/blockedparty, where $5/month gets you access to THREE bonus episodes every single month. We just released a mailbag with fan fave Lydia Burrell this past week, and this week, we'll have the video from our live show with Taylor Lorenz, where she introduces us to the world of TikTok on Cameo, and it's...very bad. Plus, we've got Episode 2 of BPD&D coming up later this month, and our Centennial Celebration happens in October too! You won't wanna miss out.
