Monday's here and so is Mack! Mr. Gordon is a jack-of-all-trades, and man of many talents, and always has his hands in numerous deliciously creative pies. He is an actor, writer, director, and producer, fashioning wonderful projects for all to enjoy. We chat about how he got into the business (no, like, actually great info, y'all!!), how he juggles his passions, and how Chance The Rapper convinced him to move to Chicago. His company, Theatre In The Dark, produced an amazingly neat show, "A War Of The Worlds" - a live, virtual audio drama - and you can see it from wherever you are until November 21st. Check out @theatre_dark on Instagram, or head to theatreinthedark.com for pay-what-you-can tickets! Thanks for continuing to listen, share, and send happy vibes, and I hope you enjoy Mack Gordon!
The boys are not trying to break your heart, but they will entertain you. Lucas and Cail are joined by Mack Gordon from Theatre In the Dark for a deep-dive into this seminal record from one of Chicago's finest. LinksGrab tickets for "War of the Worlds" until November 21st.
It took 101 episodes, but Mack Gordon (actor) helps us get to one of the most notorious name-searchers on all of the Twitter [dot] com (who will absolutely block us once he finds this episode title), John Popper of Blues Traveler. He's such an easy block to catch that we have multiple Listener Blocks this week too! It's a 3-for-1! And it's all downhill from here as we contemplate life after episode 100 and it leads to a lot of memories of childhood food, as Mack reveals the weird foods he ate as a kid amidst tales of local haunts we loved and the "pey wet" viral video. Finally, the Blocked Boys also find some time to get into the death of Quibi, Stefan gets a new phone and some new soccer jerseys, and John leans into a week of Miley Cyrus takes. If you want some new stuff too, you can head on over to https://patreon.com/blockedparty, where we are going wild for bonus content this month that you can't get anywhere else. Last week, we posted our BPTV: CanCon episode with Jesse and Mike and followed that up with the video of John and Stefan drinking the nasty Canada Juice. This week, it's a special clips episode where the Blocked Boys remember the finer moments of the first 100 episodes with a ton of new commentary from the boys themselves, and you'll enjoy episode 3 of BPD&D with Branson Reese and Jamie Loftus. You won't want to miss any of it! Mack Gordon is an actor who splits his time between Chicago and Vancouver, and his company, Theatre in the Dark, is currently performing a radio play based on H.G. Wells' War of the Worlds. Tickets can be purchased at https://www.theatreinthedark.com. Mack can be followed on Twitter at @MackGord.
