About this Episode

This one's pretty straightforward: Should social media platforms have banned Trump? What about all those other people? Also, now that he has moved Jesse finally reveals a dark secret about one of his old building-mates. (Jesse has a new audio setup and his sound quality will be better next time. It's Katie's fault, somehow, probably.) This was originally a patrons-only episode, so please consider becoming a susbcriber: https://patreon.com/blockedandreported

Also please consider preordering Jesse's book so it will be successful and he will have leverage over Katie in what is becoming a deeply abusive work environment:
