This week on the mighty GLoP podcast, the guys spend some time analyzing Megxit, the economics, the relationships, and the causes. Then, it’s time we got serious (well, serious for this show) about the prospect of President Sanders. Sure, he could win — stranger things have happened (cough). Also, we take another look at Once Upon A Time in Hollywood, and finish up with some birthday wishes for The Podfather himself, the great Norman Podhoretz, who turned 90 years young on January 16th. Happy birthday, sir!

New York Times columnist Ross Douthat joins the Remnant to discuss religion: new religions, religions fighting among themselves, hokey religions that are no match for a good blaster at your side, etc.

It’s the last GLoP of the year — oh wait, it’s the last GLoP of the decade. Better make this one memorable. What can we do? I know, let’s help Jonah write a column. YES.

So that’s what we do: Rob and John suggest column topics and along the way, cover the which droids they’d like to be, the trouble with Clint Eastwood’s new movie Richard Jewell, why the Democratic party is eating itself, a bit of Rank Punditry®, Rob’s newest obsession: ASMR videos (no, we’ve never heard of it either), and various other rabbit holes and detours.

This week on the mighty GLoP podcast, we once again throw pre-agreed topics to the curb and let the Big Brains (that’s really what they make us call them) take the show where they will. So, we cover the infamous history of Rob’s NYC neighborhood, The Watchmen and The Man in The High Castle, whether or not The Irishman is trash or treasure, and are the Ferengis (characters on Star Trek: Voyager for you non-nerds) members of the Chosen People? A GLoP investigation. Finally, fair warning: we do some Rank Punditry® on impeachment and some of you may be get triggered by what you hear. We apologize in advance to those that don’t want to hear politics, and urge you to use your fast forward button the the last five minutes where we discuss Christmas vs. Hanukkah (or is it Chanukah?) and then do stick around for an outtake or two after the closing song.

This week, something a little different: a totally free-form, no-topics-agreed-on-prior-to-the-show, take it where you will episode. Full disclosure: this is not the big deal it appears to be as even when we do agree on topics before the show, they are often abandoned, ignored, or disappear down a deep GLoP rabbit hole. Such is life in the GLoP Audio-phonic Universe®. So, in the spirit of improvisation, we’re not going to tell you in this show description what they discussed. You’ll just have to listen.
