Episode 89: Jacob Samuel v. Garfield Eats

Blocked Party

Jacob Samuel (comedian) joins the show for only our second fully in-studio episode since March, and we waste no time getting down to business, as Jacob has a run-in with the Chief Entergagement Officer of Toronto's weird, Garfield-themed Uber Eats restaurant over a role in a movie the CEO was funding. Everything in that sentence is somehow true, and we break it all down for you in the Block Tale. The Blocked Boys also find some time to meander, as we discuss the curling emoji, pets, Vancouver politics, ice cream, and Stefan tries to reclaim his throne as the man with the worst takes in podcasting. It doesn't go well. What does go very well with this episode, however, is some more Blocked Party!
