It’s relatively rare when one story becomes so omnipresent in the culture that we devote almost an entire episode to it. But that’s the case this week when the men of GLoP gingerly step in the Harvey Weinstein story. There’s no good, only bad and ugly in this one. Also, a bit about Jimmy Kimmel’s clown nose on, clown nose off behavior of late and his puzzling statement that he is indifferent to Republican members of his audience. Unlike us.

Also, Minnesota statues and other assorted ephemera.

As promised, here’s the GLoP Game of Thrones season 7 recap podcast with special guests New York Times columnist (and National Review movie critic) Ross Douthat and The Washington Free Beacon’s Sonny Bunch sitting in for the Game-less Rob Long. Need less to say, this show contains wall-to-Northern Wall spoilers as well as arcana and details that only people who actually live in Westeros or die hard Thrones fans will appreciate. That said, if you watch the show and want to hear some smart guys geek out about it, then this podcast is for you. Winter is here.

This week, a special edition of the Ricochet Podcast. Peter Robinson and Rob Long (Lileks is cruising the Atlantic) are joined by The Weekly Standard’s Andrew Ferguson and the great P.J. O’Rourke. You’ll definitely want to check out P.J.’s new venture AmercianConsequences.com. As you would expect, this show a wide ranging ramble through the culture, but past and present, including but no limited to President Trump, Sheriff Joe, the Summer of Love (in ’67), Burning Man, cars, Wall Street, Matthew Arnold’s poem Dover Beach and more. And be sure and stick around after the show (or at least the part with Andy and P.J. for a rare conversation with just Rob and Peter (aka The Founders).

This week, our good pal Larry Kudlow sits in for the making-tv-great-again Rob Long. We’ve also got Henry Olsen, author of The Working Class Republican: Ronald Reagan and the Return of Blue-Collar Conservatism who tell us what why Reagan’s greatest influence may have been Franklin Roosevelt, how The Great Communicator would’ve come down on the health care debate, and supposes who would have won in a Trump-Reagan electoral contest. Later, Mr. Immigration Mickey Kaus stops by to school us on why the Emma Lazarus poem isn’t policy and what the media gets wrong over and over about this contentious issue. We also talk about the good economic news, and the tight ship John Kelly is running at the White House.

On the Ricochet Podcast, we go to great lengths to provide breadth and depth in covering the news of the day. Where else can you hear incisive legal analysis from John Yoo and great social commentary and levity from Pat Sajak? Nowhere else, that’s for sure. We give some free legal advice to those in need, talk about walls (those that were torn down and those yet to be built), and school Peter Robinson on 20th Century culture he somehow missed. Also, a preview of next week’s Reagan Library event featuring Pat and Peter. Don’t miss it.

This week, the men of GLoP take on two topics they know a lot about: the best of movies made about New York City and their favorite, most re-watchable movies. And yes, they delve a bit into the contre-Trump of the week, too.
