This is an eclectic episode to be sure. We start with a review of Wednesday’s presidential press conference and center on how Joe Biden sees himself. The folks on the far left are looking for FDR at a time when, in the eyes of our intrepid trio, maybe what America really wants is Dwight Eisenhower.

After the “war,” we get the “remembrance…” Sidney Poitier, Peter Bogdanovich, Betty White and, just to liven things up a little, we ask “who would you not mind seeing dead?” Yeah, it’s a little bit involuted.

The merry men of GLoP are back with their first show of 2022, and they have a lot to get off their chests, starting with the fact that all three of them are now certified COVID Heroes®. Also, some thoughts about Big Government and snow removal, theater troupes in TV, movies, and plays, Licorice Pizza (that’s a movie, not a new snack food, and why Apple TV+’s new production of The Tragedy of Macbeth is like a classic Bugs Bunny cartoon.

Yep, it’s the last GLoP of 2021, and there’s lots to discuss, including Rob’s not so great day, some advice for big entertainment companies, a very thoughtful joke, the case for more violence and nudity on TV, and much more. See you next year, GLoP-heads!

This week on GLoP, the guys deconstruct Dune, discuss the merits of keeping a diary, offer some opinions on Succession, and remember show runner extraordinaire  Steven J. Cannell.

This week on the world famous GLoP podcast we….start over. You’ll hear what we’re talking about when we listen and no, we will never discuss what was said, so don’t ask. Really. But that doesn’t mean you aren’t getting a generous helping of GLoP nourishment — you are. We cover Shatner’s trip to space, some thoughts about the imminent release of Dune, Chappelle, Netflix, and that silly work stoppage, and your usual dose of non-sequitors, show biz anecdotes, and sci-fi put downs.

It’s late in the evening on the last night of the month, so you know what that means: time for the 2nd GLoP of the month! In this installment, our intrepid pop culture guides walk us though weird mask rules, Foundation, Apple TV+ and the difficulties (for some) of finding new show, a very weird side effect of COVID and a possible breakthrough medication to treat it, the most unusual episode of the old Mission Impossible TV show, and the OZY Media story.

As summer slides into autumn GLoP eases into a decidedly laid back edition. Rob goes from the wilds of Alaska to the beaches of the Virgin Islands while John and Jonah go from hot to cold on supposedly classic films like The Searchers, Citizen Kane and Vertigo.

There’s also an appreciation of the film Road House and character actor Paul Willson (Cheers, It’s Gary Shandling’s Show) and Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.

This episode of GLoP spans a panoply of topics, multiple locations coast to coast, health updates, political scandals, an offbeat HBO show, and some juvenile but very funny double entendres. Please bear with us as we make sure that this edition of GLoP checks all the boxes.

We’re late and we know it. But there’s a good reason for it, which will be explained within. Also, we note the passing of Jackie Mason, Rank Punditize® billionaires in space, remember a certain game show from the 70’s and give some thoughts on Black Widow. 

We promise to return to our regular schedule next month.

It’s the end of the month and you know what that means: time for another contractually obligated episode of GLoP! This week, the guys are all over the map literally and figuratively. Just a smattering of the speaking scat demonstration in this show: Stripes, Roots, Cheers Babies, Stalin, Kim Jong-Un, Lawrence of Arabia, Mel Brooks, movies you’ve seen ten times or more, New York movies, and yes, Day of The Triffids. 

This week, another tiptoe through non-sequiturs, riffs, racy stories, and long forgotten factoids and anecdotes about TV, movies, and whatever else pops into the GLoPer’s psyches.  We’ve got Liberace, Rob may be re-locating, Jonah has anger, John knows why fandom is addicting, and a story about Sean Connery and Audrey Hepburn that has a good end.

It’s the last week of the month, so that means it’s time for another GLoP. This week, Jonah, Rob, and John discuss the good and the bad of slinging words for living, John and Rob reveal they like to watch golf but not play it, some thoughts on AT&T unloading Time Warner, how Barry Diller went from movie mogul to selling fat pants on TV, and we get a some insight into daily life in the Crescent City.

This week, the men of GLoP try to teach the kids in the audience (yes, we have some young listeners) about what it’s like to live with inflation, Rob is taking a sojourn in a place that’s big and easy, Jonah does a deep dive on movie bad guys, and John has an Israeli TV show that he wants everyone to watch.

This week, an audio feast fit for a leprechaun: we’ve got Rank Punditry® on Biden’s Big Speech, we’ve got er, commentary on Shakespeare (not kidding!), we got worst accents in entertainment history, the guys try to fix the Oscars, and –breaking news and a GLoP exclusive– Rob Long has been cancelled. We’re not going to spoil it here, so you’ll have to tune in to find out why.

No, we’re not going to tell you what the word in the title of this episode means. But it is revealed within. Other things revealed in this episode: weird injuries from benign objects that befell men as they get older, what if they held an Oscars® and nobody cared, Hollywood producer Scott Rudin is revealed to be a bad boss even though they made a movie about it 30 years ago, we defend iconic Simpsons character Apu from that sap Hank Azaria who voices him, the now obligatory joke designed to offend at least someone, and we propose re-making the last season of Game of Thrones. Because why not?

The mighty men of GLoP are back just in time to satisfy their contractual obligation to release two episodes per month and to pundit on a host of topics, including why we need more stars and what to do about it, the streaming wars are exhausting, debuting their new game Strange Bedfellows (give us some of yours in the comments), and a GLoP Deep Dive® on the Snyder Cut version of Justice League.  You wanted pop culture? You’ve got it.

It’s a new month and that means a new GLoP. They eschew all of the obvious cultural issues in the news (despite some prodding from outside parties, ahem) and concentrate on –not kidding– Mickey Rooney, robot babies, the problem with private schools, Gone With The Wind, Tropic Thunder, and some gossip from down south.

We know, we know: we just put out a GLoP a few days ago. But with Rob in Africa, Jonah trapped in Austin, and John wrapped up in selling merch, we were not able to pull one together earlier in an already short month, so we spent our Sunday morning creating premium content for you. Just some of the topics covered in this GLoP for the ages: the worst Jewish characters in movies, a look a the trials and tribulations of Andrew Cuomo and Anthony Fauci, we defend some maligned movies (h/t @jameslileks), and whatever you do, do not skip through the second spot. That’s all we’ll say about that.

Rob Long is fresh off the plane from Kenya and naturally has a lot to say about to say about the experience, and the guys pull out just about every pop culture reference they can about the place over the course of the show. But that’s not all: they also opine on WandaVision, the Marvel series currently running on Disney+, whether the streamers rebooting everything ever made is a good idea (a comparison made to the now deceased Quibi is met with a tad of resistance), we do a deep dive into the sad sagas of Don McNeil,  the soon to be former reporter at  of the NYT, and the currently suspended Mike Pesca of Slateand the through the looking glass situation at Smith College. Also, Jonah survives an unfortunately timed trip to Texas, and John is selling schwag.

Strange days call for a strange podcast. This week, GLoP explains the GameStop controversy, remember the great Cloris Leachman, the once great and then awful Phil Spector, why M*A*S*H was not the greatest TV show, and other assorted seemingly random observations and jokes.
