HoS pod is quite happy to welcome Blocked and Reported co-host Katie Herzog. I’m a big BAR fan and believe it to be somewhat misunderstood, especially at this juncture. We get into how the podcast has evolved into a more journalistic and narrative driven product, plus touch on the ways an Old Public Radio golden age fell apart.
This discussion touches on, but is not limited to:
Katie allegedly knows nothing about sports but somehow knows the relevant details of Meyers Leonard saying “kike” while gaming.
Shouldn’t the dumb jock defense help Leonard here?
White American NBA player politics
How Prestige 2000s Radio fell apart and why those carrying its torch are the people public radio hates
When you realize that the truth won’t set you free, what happens next?
Katie’s lost friends over what she’s written but I, oddly, don’t seem to have?
The challenge of sports with a lot of homophobia among players trying to advance Pride Nights
The Bon Appetit vs. Reply All Latinx Standoff Ouroboros
The Great Katie vs. Jesse debate about his leaving Twitter
