Happy New Y…
 
Yep, it's time for another jaunt through pop culture with the men of GLoP. But fair warning: we do discuss politics in this show, so if you are not interested in some Rank Punditry®, you can skip from 3:12 to 23:48 in this podcast. So let's keep the garment rending in the comments to a minimum, deal? After the political talk, the guys cover a movie…

Spoiler alert: he was not senior …

OK, fair warning: we're in week 10 or so of this lockdown thing, and the men of GLoP are getting a bit punchy.
