Volcanoes. Trees. Drunk butterflies. Mars missions. Slug sex. Death. Beauty standards. Anxiety busters. Beer science. Bee drama.

Twitter Genius/Idiot Stefan Heck and comedian John Cullen invite guests on the program to talk about the who and the how of getting blocked on social media. From celebrities to jilted ex-lovers, every block has a story and we’re here to get to the bottom of it.

It's our first episode in 8 months where we have everyone including the guest in studio, and boy do we have a fun time with our wonderful guest Brandon Wardell (actor/comedian). To borrow a phrase from past guest David J. Roth, we "remember some guys", but instead of sports, it's the internet edition, as we dig into some people we remember from the…

Yasi Salek (podcaster, writer) joins the pod and lays down the law, as someone finally sides with John in the great "peen nut" incident and agrees the story is boring. There's a block in here too, as "scene queen" Audrey Kitching blocks Yasi and sends her down a YouTube rabbit hole as she remembers the block. Elsewhere, Yasi and John form a kinship…

Seals. Sea lions. Walruses. Walrus dongs. Classic Ologies. We sit down with Luis A Hückstädt, PhD and talk about blubber, ocean currents, psychedelic teeth, whisker tech, receding ice, boops, snoots, barks, butt nubbins and whether or not that one seal from the video actually felt bashful about getting that fish cake? Or was it a sea lion? Which is…
 
It's only our second-ever dual guest episode, as we welcome Josiah and Drew from the Globe Hell Warning podcast to tell us about a Twitter prank that goes awry but has a heartwarming ending, as we learn all about a new weird sect of Twitter.

Ohulloh! This is not your regular Ologies episode (which will come on Tuesday per usual.) It’s actually not an Ologies episode! This is a fun little bonus GUEST podcast we're dropping in our feed. Real Good is a show that started during the beginning of COVID to highlight different non-profits helping with the pandemic — but soon revealed that many…

Ashley Feinberg (writer, Trashberg) returns to the show to tell us about a back-and-forth with gas station interviewer Salena Zito, who went on a merry-go-round of soft-blocking Ashley before finally pulling the trigger after MONTHS of playing games. It's a wild one and we love it. We also take a trip down memory lane as we remember Harry Potter mi…
 
This week we have a real conversation and we get deep as we talk about ourselves instead of current of events Kris Minor: https://linktr.ee/krisminor Dalton Smith: @daddmusic Lucky VII: @theluckyvii Spur of the moment: https://krisminor.bandcamp.com/album/spur-of-the-moment Wedding Tape: https://stepbrotherspod.bandcamp.com/ StepBrothers Podcast Li…
 
Bones. Shells. Reefs. Teeth. Biomineralogy. The wonderful UCLA geochemist Rob Ulrich answers a giant pile of questions such as: How do crystalline structures materialize out of thin air and water?

Lauren Ash (Superstore) joins us for a look inside a popular actor's mentions, as a guy who assumed he was going to be ignored got just about the opposite treatment from Lauren and her followers until HE needed to block HER to avoid being messed with further. Elsewhere, the episode starts off hot as John delves into a years-old debate with Stefan, …
 
Talking dogs. Rolled Rs. That dangly thing in the back of your throat. Speech impediments. Alternative forms of communication. And talking cats. World famous speech pathologist by day, dog whisperer also by day, Christina Hunger MA, CCC-SLP joins us to talk about what those letters after her name mean, helping people literally find their voice, AAC…
 
It's our first-ever "anti-block" this week, as art critic Jerry Saltz takes what would be a likely block situation for 95% of Twitter's genteel population and turns it into a success story with our guest, Ben Flores (writer, podcaster). It's also the first time a guest provides us with an imgur to tell the whole story, and it's a good one. The Bloc…

Shipwrecks. Treasure. Sunken planes. Scuttled submarines. New life forming around old machinery. There’s an -ology for that -- just ask Maritime Archaeologist and wreck nerd Chanelle Zaphiropoulos. This absolutely charming and passionate scuba diver, history buff and antiquities scholar dishes about pirates, warships, admirals worth admiring, and s…
 
Dan O'Sullivan (writer, Welcome to Sullyville) appears on a main episode of the show for the first time, and him and John find themselves to be kindred spirits as John is uncharacteristically "on one" throughout the whole episode. Speaking of being on one, Dan gets blocked by one of the world's worst people after taking him to task for some horribl…

Andrea Jin (comedian) returns to the show with a Block Tale that is quite rare: the one where you're so embarrassed by someone you admire potentially seeing a past DM you sent, that you block them so they don't. It's a first for the show and an endearing story that a lot of us can certainly relate to. Elsewhere in the episode, Stefan tells us all a…

Because one bears is not enough bears, SIX more ursinologists join to answer your questions about polar bear fur, monogamy, that scene from "The Revenant" and more.

Wes Barker (magician) joins the show to tell us what happens when magicians prank each other, and how it can lead to actual, real-world consequences of the utmost annoyance.

After a long week we are back to relax and talk some shit Kris Minor: https://linktr.ee/krisminor Dalton Smith: @daddmusic Talk to me Nice Album: https://krisminor.bandcamp.com/album/talk-to-me-nice Wedding Tape: https://stepbrotherspod.bandcamp.com/ StepBrothers Podcast Links: Donations: https://supporter.acast.com/Step-Brothers-Podcast Twitter: @…
 
Grizzlies. Pandas. Black bears. Chonkers. The episode you’ve begged for with scientist, explorer, and Ursinologist Chris Morgan. Why are bear ears so cute? What’s up with hibernation? How do you play nice with bears? What is it like to hug them? How creepy is Teddy Ruxpin? Panda patterns, fat bear competitions, tooth nubbins, land “bridges,” campin…
 
Tim Gray (comedian) joins the show for our first-ever cease-and-desist, as apparently telling jokes about someone on a local cable access show is grounds for getting lawyers involved. It's a particularly scummy man and so it feels like a great thing all around. And this episode is a great thing too, as we find time for John to display his impeccabl…
 
This week our special guest is Cush with a C and lets just say we have a deep/intelligent episode Kris Minor: https://linktr.ee/krisminor Dalton Smith: @daddmusic Cush with a C: @cushwithac_ Talk to me Nice Album: https://krisminor.bandcamp.com/album/talk-to-me-nice Cush with a C - Nothing's Perfect: https://music.apple.com/us/album/nothings-perfec…
 
This encore includes tons of previously cut and never-before-heard bonus material (and maybe an eggregious number of sidenotes) about how perfect and weird eggs are. The biggest eggs! The smallest eggs! The people arrested for stealing the most eggs! Oologist Dr. John Bates gives Alie a tour of the egg vault at the Field Museum of Chicago and it wa…
 
Lauren L. Walker (writer/podcaster) joins the show to demonstrate that the best way to get blocked by Ricky Gervais is to write one of his jokes for him. He's another in a long line of very famous name-searchers and we're surprised it took 123 episodes for him to land here, but it's all worth it. Elsewhere on the episode, Lauren drops a controversi…
 
This week Riyan is here as we talk the NBA Trade deadline, Joe Budden podcast fiasco, and the Zack Synder Justice League Kris Minor: https://linktr.ee/krisminor Dalton Smith: @daddmusic Talk to me Nice Album: https://krisminor.bandcamp.com/album/talk-to-me-nice Wedding Tape: https://stepbrotherspod.bandcamp.com/ StepBrothers Podcast Links: Donation…
 
PART 2 with legit professional Fanthropologist Meredith Levine. In this thrilling conclusion, we take Patreon questions and address stans vs. fans, cults and fandom, how fan fiction circumvents the studio system, how showrunners feel about fan suggestions, fangirling, fanboying and a novel term for that plus a bonus tables-are-turned interview abou…
 
Molly McAleer (podcaster) joins us to discuss a much juicier Block Tale than the one in the episode's title, one so juicy we've diverted attention from it because we don't want that particular website's followers after us. The Shark Tank block is very fun too, and the whole episode is just a nice time as we learn about Christian YouTube, Juggalo Ti…
 
This week we bring in Poetic Justice to talk about his debut project and growing up in Arlington Kris Minor: https://linktr.ee/krisminor Dalton Smith: @daddmusic Poetic Justice - Po'iTree in the Trap: https://open.spotify.com/album/1IhbDNZBcPd3BaANgxiKgx?si=xQ-Fb5w0SuK6Poccs5w4mw Talk to me Nice Album: https://krisminor.bandcamp.com/album/talk-to-m…
