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.
Jesse Farrar v. The Calf Cramp Lady
Jesse Farrar (Your Kickstarter Sucks) returns to the show fresh off of doing a Go Off Kings stream with Stefan and that vibe permeates throughout the show as it starts chaotic and keeps that feel all the way through to the end. Jesse finds a block from the lady who did that very weird calf cramp tweet and John lets Jesse and Stefan try their hands at a voiceover audition he didn't get. Elsewhere, the Blocked Boys try to decide what constitutes a "non-scary Halloween movie" after Jesse gets perplexed by some of Freeform's programming decisions as we talk Madden, Steam nicknames, and Blocked Party finally gets the shine they deserve in a community newspaper.
If you want some more of that Blocked Party shine, head on over to patreon.com/blockedparty, where $5/month gets you access to THREE bonus episodes every month, including the continuation of our Paranoia series AND the return of Blocked Party live shows next month. Lots of great things coming very soon that you won't wanna miss. Plus: ad-free episodes! Discord link! Other stuff!

Aiden Arata v. A Party Guest
Aiden Arata (writer, content creator) joins us to discuss a time that a combination birthday party went awry as one guest in particular got very possessive over the leftovers. The rest of the episode is all content that's never been reheated though, as the Blocked Boys get into Lindsay Lohan's beach club, sparkling water, movie novelizations, MLB's "Turn Ahead the Clock" jerseys, and it's episode 151, so we talk drinkin', baby!!! Plus, we dive into Soup Girl Fall, disguising edibles as Halloween candy to give them to kids, and Glassdoor reviews of the United States Army.
If you want content that is definitely not for kids (and we'll never disguise THAT), you can head on over to patreon.com/blockedparty where $5/month gets you access to THREE bonus episodes every single month. We just did a great Canadian Education episode with Kofie Yeboah about the Canadian Football League that's up now, and we've got more Paranoia and other fun stuff coming down the pipe so be sure to check it out. And if you hate the ads, we have ad-free content too!

Tony Hawk v. The Olympics
Tony Hawk (legend) joins the show to fulfill John's dream and to talk about the time that the International Olympic Committee booted him off the Park Course and then the time right after that when he got home from Tokyo and got blocked by NBC for doing his own commentary on their content. Before all that, we reminisce about how Tony's appearance on the show came to be, through a Cameo from a listener and we learn the insane number of Cameos Tony has done. Elsewhere, Stefan and John ask Tony for advice on being cool which leads to John committing how to learn to hardflip. Plus, we chat curling, burgers, karaoke, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater, exit surveys, and Tony tells us about retiring tricks and making skate decks with his blood.
If you want to commit a sort of online blood oath 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 week, we've got Kofie Yeboah returning to the show as we teach him (and ourselves, really) about the Canadian Football League and it's a good one. Plus we have our Paranoia series ongoing and if you hate the ads, we have some new ad-free tiers for you check out. And! Zoom shows return in November. So give it a peek!

Andrew Zuber v. J.P. Arencibia
Our good friend The Zubes (Wrestling Brain, Sportsfeld) joins the show to talk about being blocked by a former Major League Baseball player, who he then works with in sports media and gets unblocked by, who he then finds out is dating a very terrible person and wishes he was still blocked. It's a whole range of emotions this week on BP and we are here for all of it as the Blocked Boys also dive into nicknames, fantasy hockey, Dhar Mann's bizarre Instagram page, Elizabeth Holmes' courtroom text message reveal, Jordan Clarkson, stinging insults, and Stefan dresses up as Spider-Man.
One thing you could get dressed up for is our Patreon page over at patreon.com/blockedparty, where $5/month gets you access to THREE bonus episodes every single month. Last week, we released the second Paranoia episode as our gang of RPG characters faces even more issues just trying to get our impossible mission started, and this week, it's an emergency Blocked Bag with Producer Dan after a guest is forced to cancel suddenly and it's a whole lot of fun. Plus we got an exclusive Discord, ad-free episodes, and more!

Juliana Rodrigues v. An Injury/Food Instagram
Juliana Rodrigues (comedian) joins the show to discuss how an older guy who works at a comedy venue has an extremely strange Instagram account that only shows his workplace injuries and bad pictures of his food, leading Juliana to block him. Of course, Stefan loves it. With John and Stefan just returned from their fantasy hockey boys' trip, they give all the goods on Stefan having a tough Thursday night and we learn an awful lot about everyone's puking habits. But don't worry, before long we settle in to some more "normal" conversation about eating 6 Junior Chickens in one sitting, webcams, cats, getting in an argument in the Instagram comments, and buying clothes at the airport.
If you want to save your airport clothes money and spend it on something much more fun, you can donate to the show at patreon.com/blockedparty, where $5/month gets you access to THREE juicy bonus episodes every single month. This week, it's Paranoia 2 as our ragtag crew goes shopping for gear before heading out on our impossible mission. We are joined by Carlos Maza, Carla Mah, Racquel Belmonte, and Josh Buergel for an RPG of extreme proportions. Plus we've got lots of fun stuff coming and ad-free versions of the episodes too!
Juliana Rodrigues is a comedian and podcaster who hosts the All Good podcast, available wherever you get your pods. You can follow her on Instagram at @juliana_hooliana and on Twitter at @hooliana_.
Clare Belford v. Weight Loss Instagrammers
Clare Belford (comedian) returns to the show and she's got a new view on life where she doesn't want to hear about your weight loss program, your diet, your latest fad, or just your weight in general. And she's got a block for that! We discuss how COVID has distorted everyone's view of their own bodies and it gets a bit real but it gets very nice too, which we love. And of course, we go over a bunch of not nice stuff as per usual, as we get into living in Eastern Canada, haircuts, curling fights, weird drink combinations, Pepito the Cat, and John and Stefan pull out the measuring tape to see who has the bigger head.
If you want to prove you have a big head and even bigger brains, you can donate to the show at patreon.com/blockedparty, where $5/month gets you access to THREE bonus episodes every single month. Last week, we put out a Hell Block with Brett Payne where Stefan talked about being blocked by John Pavlovitz, and coming soon is the second chapter of our Paranoia saga, where we play the well-known RPG with Carlos Maza, Carla Mah, and Racquel Belmonte, which you won't wanna miss. Plus, we've got a great Discord, an ad-free version of the pod, and more! So check it out.

But I don’t care what she thinks. I’m hanging with the boys. Hi kiki.
But John Funko Pops
Been a listener for about a year or so now and look forward to the new episodes each week. John and Stefan are hilarious, have great chemistry, and always bring on great guests. I have learned a decent amount about Canadian stuff too.
Couple of idiots talking about dumb stuff. It’s hilarious.
