About Blocked and Reported

Blocked and Reported is a podcast by Katie Herzog (formerly of The Stranger) and Jesse Singal (a contributing writer and former staffer at New York Magazine) about weird internet nonsense and everything that entails. Part politics, part pop-culture, part obsessive dissection of esoteric internet slapfights, and sporadically insightful, Blocked and Reported is universally acknowledged as the first-ever podcast to discuss the internet.

The weekly podcast is free, so definitely check it out (or on Apple or Spotify or Stitcher). If your interest is piqued and you want to support the podcast, hear exclusive patrons-only content, and participate in online hangouts with the hosts, you've come to the right place.

Some of our five-star Apple Podcasts reviews:

If you’re looking for a funny, thoughtful, opinionated podcast about news that doesn’t matter much, this is a solid choice. I never cared about any of their controversies before listening and I still don’t after, which is frankly relieving with all the cataclysm I get daily from the NYT, the WSJ, etc. Katie and Jesse, keep it up, ya punks. (5/4/2020)

Listening to these two quip about online stuff is quick and enjoyable. Katie in particular is someone I could develop a girl crush on, though I’m a 50-yo super straight suburban (not super-)mom. That’s why I’m not on twitter but I do lurk, and Katie’s and Jesse’s are among the few smart and witty ones I look forward to. Good work guys! (4/21/2020)

Been a fan of Katie and Jesse for years on Twitter. Love that they’ve come together on this podcast. A much needed antidote to much of what goes on in the digital world. Keep it up!  (4/6/2020)

That's it! That's the pitch! Hope you enjoy.
