Episode 126: Helen Lewis And The Stonewall Conspiracy
Stonewall says they’re an LGBT charity, but the truth is far darker. They’re the ones who took Jesse. If you’re seeing this, please send he–
Jesse Singal has disappeared off the face of the Earth. Trace’s investigation leads straight to “Stonewall,” a shadowy LGBT charity that is said to have infiltrated the highest levels of the British government. Katie leaks the news to Gawker Media, resulting in deadly riots erupting across New York over remaining supplies of Blocked And Reported. In an attempt to quell the chaos spreading across the nation, President Biden invites Katie to join him on a nationwide broadcast to announce that strategic reserves of Blocked And Reported have been deployed. (He then forgot to show up.)
Just when all seems lost, an old friend of the pod makes a triumphant return. Can Helen Lewis provide the nation with its weekly dose of internet insanity before it’s too late? Or has the Pax Americana finally come to an end?

Organized by Trans Activism UK, transgender rights supporters gathered outside BBC's office at Portland Place to protest against the news corporation's queerphobic agenda. Earlier in October 2021, the BBC published an article titled 'We're being pressured into sex by some trans women', which sparked widespread outrage among the transgender community. The group gathered to condemn BBC for spreading hatred and discrimination against the transgender population. (Photo by Belinda Jiao/SOPA Images/LightRocket via Getty Images)
