"I do ten trillion push-ups every day"— Howard Bloom
Howard Bloom is an American author and Jewish Zionist from New York City. He is good friends with TJ Kirk, who considers him an inspiration and is a huge fan of his books. During 2013. Howard was featured on The Amazing Atheist channel pretty often, with TJ trying to give him a spotlight to grow until he could begin his own YouTube career. TJ gave a pretty detailed story on how he met Bloom during episode 107 of Drunken Peasants.
On Drunken Peasants
Howard had a guest spot on the 3rd episode of the Drunken Peasants and talked at length during the episode, being the type of person who can fill an entire episode like Galen. Also similar to Galen he is somewhat polarizing, a good portion of the audience dislike him, while another half find him interesting. He wasn't featured as a guest for some time despite TJ's teasing, until they eventually featured a video of his in episode 101 that TJ personally disagreed with, during which Howard claimed that Barack Obama is a racist and that Israel is a victim of American foreign policy.
Howard came on again as a guest in episode 156, marking his first appearance in over a hundred episodes.
Howard had his third guest appearance in episode 339, where he and Paul had a moderated debate for almost the entire episode. Throughout the debate, they talked about a number of different subjects, such as globalism and the 2016 presidential election. Fan response to this was mixed, with some fans stating that Paul won the debate, while others stated that Howard had won it.
- It was planned during earlier episode of the podcast for him to debate Galen Hallcyon, as evidence during episode 28. This never came to fruition.
- He really doesn't like entropy.
- He claims to have accidentally created drug culture. TJ claims to have invented the concept of selfies. Coincidence?
- He claims he does over 1,000 push-ups a day.
