Ep. 83: Harvey Tartuffe

10/16/2017
More
Sponsored by Blinkist, Casper, Lending Tree 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...

It's the first GLoP of the new year and as luck would have it, we've got plenty to talk about. First up, an actress made a speech at an awards show the other night that bridged the nexus of culture, entertainment, and politics. So yes, the men of GLoP have their say and then some. Also, some thoughts on Rogue One and the Uncanny Valley theory (here's the 30 Rock explanation of the theory Jonah refers to in the podcast), are conservatives in sitcoms making a comeback, and some thoughts on...
