Welcome to The Mary & Blake Show. A pop-culture podcast by nerds, for nerds.

Podcasts where people just shoot-the-breeze are the best. Sometimes you don’t want to be stuck to just one film, television show, or subject. That’s where award winning podcasters, Mary & Blake, come in!

This married couple with two kids will make you laugh as they discuss ridiculous topics, answer life’s most difficult questions, chat television/ film/ pop culture/ books/games/ music, and perhaps, just perhaps, solve some of the world’s many problems*. Regardless, we all need to let our hair down sometimes, make some bad decisions together, and dive head-first into the nonsense.

*No, we won’t.
