This week, a very special edition of the show commonly known as GLoP (that’s Jonah Goldberg, Rob Long, and John Podhoretz, for you noobs): a live show recorded aboard the Allure of The Seas somewhere in the Caribbean. This week, the boys prognosticate on why Barack Obama is really Greg Brady aka, Johnny Bravo, Hillary’s got 99 problems, why zombies are a cultural touchstone, and in case we wind up on one, each panelist chooses the five movies they’d take to a desert island.More
It’s GLoPtober and that can only mean one thing: the men of GLoP (that’s Jonah Goldberg, Rob Long, and John Podhoretz) are back with another tour through politics and pop culture. This week, does winning the Senate really matter?; Is Boyhood a conservative movie even though it takes potshots at Republicans and religion?; the icky use of babies on Homeland; What’s the deal with Gone Girl?; Is Adam Sandler a Hollywood disrupter or just a fading star looking for one last deal?; Will Interstellar soar among the stars or crash land in a sea of environmental metaphors?; And what’s Jonah’s favorite reality show? Hint: it’s got lots of pixellation.More
In a recent G-File, Jonah (the “G” in GLoP) wrote that “conservatives need to get over their insecurities about not being cool in the eyes of liberals.” Do we need our own Daily Show or Colbert Report? Do we already have them? Also, does the Left really have a monopoly on storytelling today Does it matter? Listen to what our learned hosts have to say on the topic and then weigh in below.More
This week, the world’s most awesome podcast tackles ISIS, both the secret and not so secret varieties; ponder why Hollywood is slumping, dispense some thoughts on immigration, and debate whether or not Republicans can ride the Hobby Lobby horse all the way to the White House.

We’ve got a bad feeling about this, EJHill.More
America’s jolliest pundits return for a special April Fool’s day edition of their patented tour through politics and pop culture. It’s a crap shoot this week as John podcasts live from Sin City. Today, our boys ruminate on ObamaCare, why liberals don’t think things go better with Koch, the How I Met Your Mother finale, Rob’s review of Johnny Carson by Henry Bushkin, and the Colbert contretemps.
The joke is on you, EJHill.More
When Barack Obama is doing comedy and the men of GLoP are doing some heavy weight social commentary (at least on this podcast), we’re through the looking glass, people. But that’s where we find ourselves as this week, Jonah, John, and Rob take on the President’s comedy chops, hipsters and the political conundrum they find themselves in, why a conversation on contraception is an exercise in futility, why liberals provide the best argument against liberalism, and a GLoP tribute to the late, great Harold Ramis. Also, as depicted above, Zoë the Wonder Dog makes her podcast debut.More
This week, the men of GLoP kick around Woody Allen, Phillip Seymour Hoffman and the way the media has covered these stories, what did Shirley Temple have that Bieber and Cyrus don’t, the hagiography of Hillary (aided and abetted by Andrea Mitchell), HBO’s True Detective, Matthew McConaughey, TV business zombies, and the slow motion avalanche that is ObamaCare.More
