Episode 151: Harry Potter And The Chamber Of Online Harassment For A Virtuous Cause

Hogwarts Legacy has been hailed as a prime example of the open-world transphobia genre -- though some find it controversial

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.

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:

Journalists Katie Herzog and Jesse Singal scour the internet for its craziest, silliest, most sociopathic content, part of an obsessive and ill-conceived attempt to extract kernels of meaning and humanity from a landscape of endless raging dumpster fires.
