(https://followfridaypodcast.com/samir-mezrahi (Full transcript at FollowFridayPodcast.com)) Samir Mezrahi's mind is on the gutters — not in the gutter. As the creator of the Instagram account https://www.instagram.com/zillowgonewild/?hl=en (Zillow Gone Wild) and the video series https://instagram.com/celebrityhomeshopping (Celebrity Home Shopping), he's seen a lot of gaudy McMansions (and proper mansions), which typically haven't been designed with water removal in mind. "They just stick out, and so many HOMEies — which is our squad in the show — will send me pictures of terrible gutters they see," he says. "I've awoken people to seeing bad gutters in their neighborhoods, around town, everywhere. So people are always sending me pictures or Insta posts or Reels. And it's always like, 'Why are you doing this to me?'" On today's episode of Follow Friday, Samir talks about the sort of content he prefers to consume online, including posts from the HGTV stars https://www.hgtv.com/shows/property-brothers (The Property Brothers); Tesla Technoking (that's his real title) https://twitter.com/elonmusk (Elon Musk); mansion tour guide https://www.youtube.com/c/EnesYilmazer/featured (Enes Yilmazer); and musical comedian https://twitter.com/NickLutsko (Nick Lutsko).
