Excuse the absence of Blowout for the past few weeks, hope we can make it up to you with not one but two new episodes where our writer Reed Nelson and I bat around various newsy topics to fill out somewhere around 90 minutes!
On ep 5, we run down the mass exodus of retail in NYC (and what’s left to fill it besides real estate speculators), how postal slowdowns/shutdowns affect small business, and should Patagonia be given any credit for taking this long to cut ties with potential forced labor in Xinjiang. Also we make fun of random PR emails for a long time (including Blood Sprinkles).
On ep 6, we discuss what fall fashion and the typical “back to school” buying season will look like as we wear our respective basketball shorts and t-shirts. Is there going to be a need to buy clothes for this upcoming season as so many stay inside and many more face financial uncertainty? We also get into our favorites on the Taco Bell menu and ponder if celebrities can use mask wearing as a way to send body doubles out to do public appearances.
If you want to support the show, have a look at the new Teamster Tees on the Heddels Shop. We’re currently backordered but should have more stock coming in shortly, as always, take 10% with the code BLOWOUT. Send emails with questions, comments, etc. to email@example.com.
