Katie regales Jesse with a tale of anti-Herzogian graffiti, and the hosts take a few minutes to thank everyone for the ridiculous start the Patreon is off to. Then they discuss the massive upheavals going on in media, many of them involving people getting fired after instances of perceived discrimination. Is there a problem trying to adjudicate this stuff via Twitter? Also: Katie confronts Yashar Ali and Jesse (sorta) confronts Alison Roman. Plus, Robin DiAngelo comes up again, shockingly.

Summing up a truly brutal week for media news involving journalists who are younger and more attractive and successful than they are, Jesse and Katie discuss Alison Roman (racist?), Ronan Farrow (bad fact-checker?), Jia Tolentino (parents human traffickers?), and gender-critical feminists (running a giant global conspiracy to oppress and control lesbians?). You will never ever again want to hear the term 'bluecheck.'

Katie leads off the show by discussing her layoff from The Stranger and reflecting on her mixed feelings about her time there. This sparks a broader commiseration about journalism being screwed. After Jesse reads Katie a super-thoughtful poem he wrote for her, the hosts tie up some loose ends about that whole Chrissy Teigen/Alison Roman/Marie Kondo thing. Jesse then unpacks a viral tweetstorm that screams "feel-bad liberalism." In the final segment, the hosts unveil the show's new Patreon page and ask listeners to empty their banks accounts to support Blocked and Reported. In other words, PLEASE SUPPORT US ON PATREON: PATREON.COM/BLOCKEDANDREPORTED .
