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?

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.

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.
