The men of GLoP gather to Rank Punditry® on last night’s mid-terms, dissect JPod’s self-imposed Twitter break, lament about people trying to get them work for free, and giggle a lot (really).

We’re a day early, but certainly not a dollar short as we tackle another busy news week. First up, Washington Examiner magazine editor (and the co-host of That Sethany Show) Seth Mandel on the shootings in Pittsburgh and the Mandel’s new life in D.C. Then, our good friend (and Ricochet’s Law Talk with Epstein & Yoo podcast co-host) John Yoo stops by to school on the the 14th Amendment and birthright citizenship, caravans, and geek out a bit on Star Trek. Also, Halloween in different parts of the country, and the President’s views on Jews.

You may have heard that there is a Supreme Court in the midst of getting confirmed for the bench. The men of GLoP (that’s Jonah Goldberg, Rob Long, and John Podhoretz) have a few thoughts about the dignified and measured process the country is engaged in. Tune in, won’t you?

Also, attention Southern California GLoP listeners: We have 2 pairs of tickets to give away to see Jonah Goldberg speak on Sunday October 7th at 7:30PM Campell Hall on the campus of UC Santa Barbara. Winners will get to meet him and get your copy of Suicide of The West signed (sorry, you have to supply your own copy of the book). The first people to PM @BlueYeti get them. See you there!

Well, this is a first for this fully operational podcast: we tackle Socialism, the newly hip, but always old school form of government. To cover both sides of the argument, we call on Washington Post columnist Elizabeth Bruenig and longtime Ricochet member (and Professor of Political Science at Skidmore) Flagg Taylor. Also, Manfort, Cohen, and all that jazz, and finally, what’s the most accurate gauge of a robust economy? Easy, it’s the state of Lileks Oil in Fargo, North Dakota. Spoiler alert: business is great.

This week, Lileks is on vacation, so we forgo the guests and open the floor to you, our faithful Ricochet listeners. We get questions on the President (natch), Rob’s favorite restaurant, which Founding Father the founders resemble, who the characters on Cheers would have voted for and more. Also, Cuomo is a dumbo, newspapers collude, and so long to the Queen of Soul. R.E.S.P.E.C.T. 🙌

This week, The GLoP-extended universe tackles all the important issues of the day: First, Jonah responds to Stephen Colbert’s lame and inaccurate attempt at humor. Then, Sarah Jeong keeps her job at the New York Times, Alex Jones is banished from (most) social media, a deep dive into Paul Manafort’s eclectic wardrobe, and we wrap up with a special GLoP investigation: is a hot dog a sandwich? Jonah says yes, others say no. Also, the idea of a museum dedicated to pizza is, er, cheesy, but where should it be located? And is that gooey stuff they sell in Chicago really even pizza? Listen and leave us your thoughts in the comments (keep it Kosher, please).

This week, we visit with Republican candidate for Senate in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Beth Lindstom, who’s running a valiant attempt to unseat someone by the name of Elizabeth Warren. No idea who she is. Then, our old friend Toby Young stops by to discuss his recent experience with the digital pitchfork and torch mob on the internet and what we ought to do about it (do read his fantastic essay on this topic on Quillette.com, The Public Humiliation Diet and buy his books that are discussed on the show). Also, the Cohen tapes, the roaring economy, and is there life on Mars? Hope so, because we feel like moving there.
