Rob Long, Jonah Goldberg, and John Podhoretz return for another whirlwind tour of politics, culture, and social media. This week, Pat Morita’s stand-up, Mark Sanford’s campaign, Game of Thrones’ nudity, Steve Byrne’s jaw, ex-Obama staffer’s Twitter feeds, Liberace’s rave’s and much more.

After an extended hiatus, the men of Goldberg, Long, and Podhoretz are back. This week, they take on the curious goings on at CPAC, one more reason, Romney lost, the end of Time (Inc.), Long lives large, the saddest victim of sequestration, and the new Pope. 

The three musketeers of media politics return. This week, they discuss the passing of Ed Koch, chain stores on the Upper West Side, Barnes and Noble as the bad guy, the changing business model of show biz, conservatives on cable, billionaires who buy studios, conservative movies, and of course — Oscar picks!

Hey, it’s the first Goldberg, Long, and Podhoretz of the new year and our merry band of gentlemen and gentile riff on a wide variety of topics for you. This week: funiculars, Al Gore sells to Al-Jazeera, just where are Obama’s women cabinet officers, lower standards for Mount Rushmore, Chuck Hagel, Downton Abbey, the Oscars, Game of Thrones, the Oscars and Lincoln, and yes, trillion dollar coins and John’s out of the box idea for solving the debt crisis. 

This week on the show informally known as GLoP, a look at the horrific shootings in Connecticut with a discussion about dealing with the mentally ill, and what to change about the nation’s gun laws. Also, how Obama could really make a difference in the country by showing some leadership on the state of the black family, and the American family in general (see Jonah’s recent column on this topic here. Then, we segue a look at Hanukah versus Christmas, depictions of the holidays in television and the movies, (including The Brady Bunch and a Charlie Brown Christmas). 

See you next year, everybody!

This week on the podcast known as GLoP, Rob Long, Jonah Goldberg, and John Podhoretz mull the lessons from the current Republican party bloodletting session, give a concise analysis of the finger-pointing, the selfless sacrifice of Dick Morris, Rob blames the voters but lauds The Life of Pi, Jonah wonders where the poop is, and John predicts the changes that Zucker will bring to CNN. 

This week on the show more elegantly known as GLoP, what bothers John more than a hurricane, more than the prospect of an Obama win, even more than the loss of power and internet? It’s Jonah Goldberg’s verified Twitter account. The horror! Also on this week’s show: the rats in New York City, human behavior in times of crisis, the last look at the 21012 Presidential race (yes!), what happens in the wake of a Romney victory, the worst line of dialogue in the history of movies, John predicts the last jobs report before the election, and Jonah rants about focus groups and then boldly hand picks the closing song.

In this first episode of our newest (and as of yet, unnamed) podcast, Rob Long, National Review’s Jonah Goldberg, and Commentary’s John Podhoretz riff on culture, media, and politics. This week, Podhoretz about-faces on Twitter, all about Akin, the hows and why of plagiarism, are we in a new golden age of television, and John describes why the Game of Thrones novels are in fact a scandal and should be banned. Also, stick around to the very end: that’s when they tell their favorite joke of the week. Certain to be become a regular feature.
