Naked and Afraid

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.

Cool

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.

GLoP Awesome

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. Also. GLoP no like M*A*S*H, and finally (after much prodding by a certain Ricochet staffer) JPod ventures into the comments on Ricochet and finds the experience, well, less than awesome.

ReadyWhen news breaks, the men of GLoP (for the uninitiated, that’s Jonah Goldberg, Rob Long, and John Podhoretz) are there to cover it. This week, breaking news on the Clinton’s finances in 2000, who knows Bowe?, the latest punditry on Game of Thrones, Tom Cruise vs. weepy teen dramas, and more!

Dollah, dollah bills, EJHill.

After an extended absence, the men of GLoP are back to answer and discuss the most important issues of the day: Is it time to break out the midterm victory champagne? The Spiderman reboot: a great or the greatest Spiderman reboot? Does Benghazi really matter? Does it matter as much of Game of Thrones? How about Mad Men? Also, Star Wars, a GloP deep dive on Frank Soto’s Monogamy: What Is It Good For? post, the funniest thing on Twitter, and Rob describes a unique French hygiene custom. Yup, we go there.

We’ve got a bad feeling about this, EJHill

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.

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.
