Jesse Singal provides an update to the update to his San Francisco party for Blocked and Reported Primos, as well as his struggle to plan it.
Katie Herzog gets introduced to gaming through the new Harry Potter game, Hogwarts Legacy. The controversy over JK Rowling’s views on gender issues have now spilled over from Twitter to the gaming press, Discord, and Twitch. Streamers are afraid to play it, servers are being raided, and writers are refusing to review it.
Plus, not-so-famous actor Armond Hammer discusses tying up women, eating their ribs, and stealing their toes, which then gets turned into an NFT.
And here’s the link to the Blocked & Reported store, for those who asked:
