Jonah Goldberg, Commentary's John Podhoretz, and Ricochet's Rob Long discuss culture and politics.

    An Iconic Episode

    An Iconic Episode

    Sing us a song, you're the men of GLoP... from Margaritaville to Brandy... where everyone is gay and everyone is Jewish (There is a logical explanation here!) and where they dish on FDR, homophobic telescopes and the Dutch.
    While we were recording we heard the news of Ivana Trump's passing and that leads to an interesting vocabulary discussion, one that you might say is iconic for this program, especially if you're even vaguely familiar with our cannon.
    Then we baffle the kids with stories of Dom DeLuise, Rodney Dangerfield, Jackie Gleason, Larry Storch and director James Burrows.
    This whole episode smells terrific!

    Occasionally Masculine

    Hey oh, the men of GLoP are back (despite predictions to the contrary in certain quarters). We're not going to spoil any of the topics discussed within, but you will laugh (repeatedly), you might cry, and you may even learn a thing or two.

    A Bunch of Gloppin' Comedians

    At the close of trading on November 17, 2021 a share of Netflix stock would cost you $691.69. At the end of trading on May 20, 2022 it was $186.35, a drop of over 70%. What in the wide, wide world of sports is going on around here? The Mighty Men of GLoP are on the case as "woke" ideology meets "stupid money" meets an industry that has started to reach its maturity.
    Then the new Judd Apatow documentary about the late George Carlin (HBO Max) spurs a discussion on great standup comics past and present and how their work stands the test of time.

    The Slap and Ovation Delta

    The Slap and Ovation Delta

    It’s a fairly rare event these days when an event in the pop culture realm becomes something everyone has a take on. But that’s what happened earlier this week when Will Smith launched the Slap Heard ‘Round The World and as such, the men of GLoP answered our Bat Signal and recorded this show. But they don’t just opine on the Fresh Prince’s pugilism. They take a look back at the career of Bruce Willis on the announcement of his retirement from acting, parse Madison Cawthorn’s claim that he regularly attends orgies and explain the proper etiquette if one should find oneself at such an event, and then they tell a few jokes that may not be 100% family friendly. Consider yourself and your children warned.

    With A Machete

    We know that we've missed a GLoP or two in the past few months. So in an effort to make up for lost GLoPs, we present this super-sized edition, close to 90 minutes long. We won't delve into the myriad of topics covered in this show except to say it runs the gamut from a brief history of cable, William Hurt and his many flaws, Skeet Ulrich, The Godfather, Brando, the woman who protested the Ukraine war in a Russian TV studio, who should play Zelensky and more. Just listen. And laugh.

Holy cow the end of the latest GLoP was hilarious with Jonah and Rob making fun of John’s monologues on the Commentary podcast! Was laughing out loud IRL!
