We’ve got a new, piping hot GLoP served up with generous helpings of Julius Caesar, the best movies of the 21st century, why TV shows need to be good from the start, songs from the ’70s, silly sounding British towns, and more. Listen and laugh. We did.

This week, GLoP-sters Jonah Goldberg, Rob Long, and John Podhoretz take on the pluses and minuses of cigar smoking, the new trend of re-booting long cancelled TV shows (Twin Peaks, Will and Grace, and Roseanne to name a few), some thought on the Seth Rich media coverage, the meaning of The Orb, and yes, the need. For. Speed.

Rob has retuned from the worker’s paradise, Jonah visits the Parrothead paradise, John watches bad Bond movies on the subway, Rob admits he once went to a a Weird Al concert, and Jonah seeks forgiveness in order to retain his geek cred. Also, is anti-Globalism French toast? Are Trump voters feeling a little buyer’s remorse? Tune in and find out.

This week, the men of GLoP address an issue that should not be controversial, yet somehow it is: freedom of speech on college campuses and in the culture at large. Howard Dean said on Twitter that hate speech “is not protected by the Constitution” (yes, it is). In a recent New York Times Op-Ed, a vice provost at New York University wrote that “We should thank the student protestors, the activists in Black Lives Matter and other “overly sensitive” souls for keeping watch over the soul of our republic.” Hmm. Also, did late night comedy fuel the rise of Trump? A sad farewell the the great Kate O’Beirne (read Jonah’s tribute here), Rob’s going to Cuba, and yes, the now apparently required corn hole joke (by the way, the now classic corn hole episode of GLoP which John references in the show is here).

It’s a super-sized GLoP this week (one hour and twenty minutes!) as the men of GLoP (that’s Jonah Goldberg, Rob Long, and John Podhoretz) opine on Sean Spicer’s gaffe, is Steve Bannon headed for the White House door?, the United Airlines bumping, RIP Red Eye, and Jonah’s reaction to the New York Times’ Rick Perlstine’s essay on Conservatism (also, as John mentions in the podcast, you must read the story on how Perlstine and his wife met. It’s in the NYT, but reads like The Onion).

This week, Sonny Bunch, the venerable co-host of The Weekly Sub-Standard podcast sits in for the TV making Rob Long (he’ll be back for the next show, promise!). The boy cover the AHCA debacle, why the Richard Dreyfuss character in Close Encounters of The Third Kind is a terrible person, ruminate on the many different cuts of Blade Runner that vastly the movie’s legacy, debate the greatness or lack thereof of Stephen King, and Jonah pushes Sonny to defend an ongoing theory in The Weekly Substandard’s podcast that the Empire in the Star Wars movies are actually the GOOD guys. Huh?

It’s the first GLoP of the new year and as luck would have it, we’ve got plenty to talk about. First up, an actress made a speech at an awards show the other night that bridged the nexus of culture, entertainment, and politics. So yes, the men of GLoP have their say and then some. Also, some thoughts on Rogue One and the Uncanny Valley theory (here’s the 30 Rock  explanation of the theory Jonah refers to in the podcast), are conservatives in sitcoms making a comeback, and some thoughts on the iPhone on its 10th anniversary.

Winter is here, @EJHill.

Yep, it’s the last GLoP of 2016, so time to do a bit of reflection (just a bit) on the year that was. We talk the incoming administration — who will and may jot make it through the nomination process, who has the best names in the cabinet, and of course, some picks for the best movies, TV, and books of the year. Got some choices we missed? Let us know in the comments below. See you next year, everyone!

After a brief excursion at sea sans Rob Long, the men of GLoP return to their landlocked status to opine on the zeitgeist of the day. This week, RIP Fidel (yay!), that ridiculous BuzzFeed piece on the HGTV stars, why the passing of former NBC Entertainment exec Grant Tinker is important, who is the greatest male and female star all off times, and of course, some tales of old and new Hollywood. ¡Viva GLoP!

Live from the Nieuw Amersterdam showroom, it’s special Mad Dogs and Englishmen (that’s Charles C.W. Cooke and Kevin Williamson) and GLoP (that’s Jonah Goldberg and John Podhoretz — Rob Long couldn’t make it this year) mashup. Won’t divulge the topics here, but there’s laughs and insights a plenty and a good time was had by most.

The stars aligned this week and we discovered that all of three of the men of GLoP (that’s Jonah Goldberg, Rob Long, and John Podhoretz) were all in the same city that never sleeps at the same time. So, we convened a special in person podcast at the sumptuous offices of Commentary Magazine. A few of today’s topics: the Conservative media industrial complex and what to do about it, Westword, Bob Dylan and the Nobel Prize, and GLoP fixes Twitter. See you on the high seas after the election, everyone.

We’re walking here, @EJHill.

When we said twice as much GLoP for the money, we were serious., folks. This week, we of course parse the second debate and the surrounding mishegas. It’s a tricky conversation to have without using words forbidden by the CoC. Also, Ken Bone, America’s choice for the winner of the debate, why furniture shopping is the worst date ever, the specter of more damaging audio coming, and finally, the candidate as infomercial pitch man. Only 28 days to go!

@EJHill is our clean-up man.

It’s the day after the night of the Big Thing and the men from GLoP cover it in their own inimitable way. Who won? Who lost? Who had nasal malfunctions? It’s all here. Also, some parsing of NYT columnist Ross Douthat’s recent Clinton’s Samantha Bee Problem column, and a meditation on the top TV shows of all time. Did we miss any? Let us know in the comments.

This week (yes, I said week — more about that in a moment), the men of GLoP diagnose a certain candidate for President, political correctness run amok, Star Trek is 50, Stranger Things, an a fond RIP to the great Gene Wilder. And GLoP heads, we have some good news for you: starting this month, you’ll get twice as much GLoP for your money as we are going to do TWO shows a month going forward. Huzzah!

Make it so, @ejhill.

This month, the men of GLOP (Goldberg, Long, and Podhoretz) reunite for yet another jog through the pop culture and political parks. This time, a bit of commentary on the today’s shake-up in the Trump campaign, an argument for Larry Hagman as the most important actor in the history of TV, and then some Twitter hashtag games: #YourFavorite7Movies and #YourFavorite7TVShows. Finally, some thoughts on Chuck Klosterman’s new book, But What If We’re Wrong.

This month, we’re on the ground at the RNC (well, two thirds of us are, anyway). First up, a first slew hand impression of the goings on in Cleveland, also a mediation on the late great Garry Marshall and his incredible TV career, some thoughts on The Day The Clown Criedthe unseen worst movie of all times, and a Krauthammer anecdote, courtesy of Jonah Goldberg.

The men of GLoP (that’s Jonah Goldberg, Rob Long, and John Podhoretz) return with another romp through pop culture and politics. This week, some thoughts upon the sunset of the primary season, the folks at Facebook are not our friends, of course some “Game of Thrones” commentary, a fond look back at the Steven Baldwin-Tom Berenger classic Cutaway, and should you write or watch something for free? A GLoP investigation. Finally, a farewell to a beloved friend.

The men of GLoP return to sprinkle the internets with more observations and barbs from the world of politics and culture. This week: the wanderings of Edward Snowden, World War Z, the Supreme Court, an unusual Alaskan summer, the Jewish Man of Steel, and Mad Men, the hit show that nobody watches.

We have all the answers this week: the pronunciation of the letter “w”, the best analogy for the Justice Department scandal, the best that can happen in the IRS scandal, who really is America’s dog, whether or not Obama is Liberace and Behind The Candelabra is a great or an unwatchable movie. Also, BREAKING: the war on terror is over, Will Smith is a physicist (just ask him), the case for drones, Jonah reviews Star Trek: Into Darkness, Arrested Development, the coming TV disruption, the importance of making Webster, and Morgan Freeman falls asleep.

First, a momentous occasion in the history of this podcast — Goldberg, Long, and Podhoretz finally agree on a name: GLoP Culture (as in pop culture). Then, a fascinating discussion on Sanford’s win; John digests Satriycon, the 50 Shades of Grey of the 1st Century; Also, Cleveland and their sorry PD; the problem with CG filled summer movies; and John books an exciting gig for an important upcoming holiday.

The podcast known as Goldberg, Long, and Podhoretz is always innovating, or as the kids call it, disrupting. This week, we put John Podhoretz in the driver’s seat of the GLoP bus and he steers us on a steady, smooth drive. The signposts this week: The Boston bombers and Ricin mailer, the press gets it wrong, terrorism in the age of Twitter, RINOs are good for the party, Big Bangs and great TV, and the elite media bubble/punditocracy is not the audience.
