* What's the future of this, or really ANY podcast? Well, dim, I'd say, and I'm being realistic about it.

* Touring the inside of a B-17 bomber in Oregon. It's an amazing piece of machinery, especially given the era from which it was born, but it still feels exactly like hte death trap it was.

* How to use old VHS tapes to mess with friends and strangers, and how to use the same philosophy to do the same with DVDs and Blu-Rays as well.

Here are just some of the topics covered in the the August 22nd, 2016 edition.

* A spoiler-free 4K/UHD review of Netflix original series "Stranger Things" and a few reasons you should definitely check it out.

* How hard would it be to guess the US nuclear launch codes in use for over twenty years? This seven digit code should be a one in ten million shot, but somehow, it was so easy my kids guessed it on their second try.

* Three of the craziest things we did back in 1993 while filming our 13-episode public access sitcom "King Me". We were young and foolish, but fortunately, we're older now.

* Ichiro Suzuki became only the 30th player to join the 3,000 hit club. He's since climbed another rung on the ladder with his continued hitting, but this is a quick look back at the magic of one of the greatest players to ever grace the sport.

* D&B Nation did a "React" video to my "How hot dogs are REALLY Made", but they just didn't get it... too stupid or too clever, you decide!

* Analysis fo the literal music video of "Love is a Battlefield," whatever that means.

The 4K/UHD podcast is back again. All of this is available in UHD on YouTube by searching "Glossy Podcast" or as an MP3 on iTunes by searching "Glossy News".

Here are just some of the topics covered in the the August 8th, 2016 edition.

* Another exclusive interview with real life pirates I encountered in Buena Park, California. These inland pirate ships are arguably the most dangerous and serious in Southern California.

* There's an EASY way to call Donald Trump on his nonsense, and that's to just refer to him as "Donald" while you call Secretary Hillary Clinton "Clinton". There are connotatoins a' plenty, as I explain in this segment.

* The fans and haters demanded it, so here's another fact-based analysis of why Donald Trump will lose, and lose BIGLY in November. I'm not going on feelings or impressions, but the analytics provided by the myriad pollsters, the pollster analysts, and those analyzing the meta-analysis of the pollsters. Donald Trump COULD still win, but the odds grow longer by the day. It ain't pretty, if you're him.

* Life is pretty good if you can just come to love it, and this video helps explain the many ways you can and just how easy it is to love your life.

* The polar bear mascot at the Coca-Cola store in Las Vegas, Nevada isn't just cute and fun, he's a puppet of the highest order, and he's so damn much fun. Watch this video to see the Coca Cola polar bear getting a bit crazy biting the heads of wayward children.

* How to appreciate the best friend in the world, and how to be that friend for those who love you.

Jul 31, 2016

The 4K/UHD podcast is back again. All of this is available in UHD on YouTube by searching "Glossy Podcast" or as an MP3 on iTunes by searching "Glossy News".

Here are just some of the topics covered in the the August 1st, 2016 edition.

* Are RV rentals the cheapest way to travel? The answer may surprise you in that, no, no they aren't. They are absurdly expensive. Forget it. Rent a Cadillac and stay in hotels instead and have a much better, much cheaper trip.

* Exclusive interview with real life pirates from the Emerald Shark, docked in Buena Park, California. These guys may seem like they are just performers at Pirate's Adventure Dinner (cousin show to Medieval Times) but they are in fact very serious and hardcore, as this interview shows.

* Pokemon Go is the best fitness experience ever, or never, or badly or since forever. It's impossible to know because it's a brand new thing. Exclusive pics from La Brea tar pits.

* You take a million pictures on your phone and cameras, but you never print them, and you should. It's cheaper than you think through Costco or Walgreens (or any of the many online places) but you still don't do it. You should, and here's why...

* What makes for a good sermon? If you're dating an incredible hotty and there are red flags, you need to run like hell. Head for the hills. My smokin' hot highschool girlfriend took me to church and I learned the lesson first hand. What makes a good sermon is explained in clear detail here.

The 4K/UHD podcast is back again this week with guest hosting special thanks to Ty The Voice guy from www.tythevoiceguy.webs.com - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAD-bZYukrAef732gxP84NA

All of this is available in UHD on YouTube by searching "Glossy Podcast" or as an MP3 on iTunes by searching "Glossy News".

Here are just some of the topics covered in the the July 25th, 2016 edition.

* Netlfix would be WAY better if it had a preview channel. Not just offering a trailer here and there, but an unending stream of trailers based first on your suggested videos, then expanding to show all sorts of things. Allow us to give the thumbs up or down, or add it to our playlist. So much better than just trying to filter through everything.

* How high do professional fireworks shows go up in the air? The answer may surprise you, or more likely, just confuse you, since the numbers only sort of make sense anyhow and there's math involved. Plus you'd have to know what fireworks they're actually using.

* Exclusive telephone interview with Bill Clinton!!! He dishes about the upcoming election and shares his thoughts on the candidates and who you should vote for.

* Meet the man with a real life super power of finding and controlling the natural behavior of mosquitoes.

* Why in the heck does the History Channel insist on measuring everything in football fields and Olympic Swimming pools? It's confusing at best, but more likely, just a bit dishonest. They SAY football fields, but they want us to THINK football stadiums. It makes it sound bigger than it is. Just give me the facts, man.

All of this is available in UHD on YouTube by searching "Glossy Podcast" or as an MP3 on iTunes by searching "Glossy News".

Here are the topics covered in the the July 18th, 2016 edition.

* Netflix could easily become the world's biggest foreign language institute in history. It wouldn't even be that hard.

* The man with the real life power of invisibility plus musings on the long gone classic TV turds of Chris Rock and Norm MacDonald.

* Making a Murderer is available on Netflix, and there are a lot of things that are great about it, plus a few that might just piss you off. Guest host Ty Anderson hasn't seen it yet, so I figured maybe you haven't either.

* Dogs v. Cats. Is it better to have your shoes chewed or your couch mauled?

* I last saw my buddy a year ago when we hung out on the fourth of July, and now he's gone. Some quick memories of our time and a recount of what makes neighbors truly unbearable on the fourth of July.

* Planning your finances for when you're gone. Without a will there can be trouble figuring out what happens to your money, but I, for one, have a plan.

All of this is available in UHD on YouTube by searching "Glossy Podcast" or as an MP3 on iTunes by searching "Glossy News".

Here are the topics covered in the the Fourth of July edition.

* Celebrity interview with Ty Anderson (Ty the Voice Guy) about the business of voice acting and how to develop characters and actually get your foot in the door.

* Don't record fireworks, you'll never watch them. A great explanation of why you should just live in the moment instead and the chance to check out the link to this 18-minute show in glorious 4K/UHD and watch it instead. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yYunVdM5NHI

* Action star Jason Statham joins us by phone to discuss his thoughts on the Brexit and wish America well on the fourth of July celebrations. He mentions his penchant for kicking ass more than a few times.

* Fireworks are fun, but don't buy them. Seriously, there are so few reasons you'd ever actually want to, and we cover those, but mostly we cover the thousand reasons you shouldn't waste your time basically setting your money on fire.

The 4K/UHD podcast is back again this week with so much more killer stuff from the show.

All of this is available in UHD on YouTube by searching "Glossy Podcast" or as an MP3 on iTunes by searching "Glossy News".

Here are the topics covered in the the May 16th edition.

* Deep Analytics: Why Trump will lose and lose badly in November - In this in-depth segment I go through the works of Sam Wang, Pollster, the various 270toWin pundits, and even the betting markets. Yes, tiny-fingers Trump will lose in November, and lose badly. He'll be out-spent, out classed and generally made to look like the loser he is. Ya fired, little Don. Ya fired.

* There are actually advantages to being held back a grade, and to my surprise, they really don't offer this to kids anymore. I know it wounds like a bad thing, but really it isn't. Hear me out and you'll agree.

* Yes, I FINALLY got paid for being awesome possum on Reddit! I promised X within a month, but delivered DOUBLE-X within a week, and even still the customer got a bit nasty about it. Well, the check still cleared, so there you go.

* Thought on the tragic shooting at Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, or rather, I guess, my lack of thoughts on it.

* Discover the movie theater that practically begs you to sneak in without paying. I mean, they still don't want you to, but it's cheaper to let dozens sneak in every hour than actually check tickets.

* Crazy mom doesn't mind her kids getting concussions, so long as they consent to them in advance, even if that clearly wasn't they agreed to.

* When someone loses consciousness, medical staff (or EMTs) have to ask orientation questions like the day of the week, the location or who the president is. Some of the acceptable answers might surprise you, even though they actually made sense, if you think about it... not too much though, just a bit.

The 4K/UHD podcast is back again and this week it's all about musical satirist Roy Zimmerman!

All of this is available in UHD on YouTube by searching "Glossy Podcast" or as an MP3 on iTunes by searching "Glossy News".

Here are the topics covered in the the June 20th edition, but really, it's all about Roy Zimmerman in one way or another.

* An exclusive backstage interview with Roy Zimmerman from his show in Seattle at the Phinney Ridge Neighborhood Center, sponsored by the Seattle Folklore Society.

* Intro to Roy Zimmerman with his hit song "Creation Science 101".

* Snippet of his song "This Machine (speaks truth to power)"

* Review of his song "Vote Republican" and how it almost seems like conservative leaders have to hypnotize voters just to make them vote against their own best interests.

* A look at the strong musical influences of the likes of The Beatles in his work.

* Topical stuff like the Bathroom Bills being passed around the country.

* Much like Bill Maher (whom he's opened for in past shows,) Roy talks about what he calls the "blue dot" enclaves in otherwise deeply red areas. Listen as he explains and goes into detail on that.

* A quick song criticizing the effect Citizens United has had on democracy in America and the myth that corporations are people, my friend.

* The best quiet moment in a live performance I've ever witnessed during a song about the dangers of Driving While Black.

* Another topical song, this time about gun violence, performed less than a day after the tragic Orlando shooting. It's only topical in the sense that a shooting had just happened, but really, the happen all the time, so I guess it's always on topic.

* Roy offers up something unique for this election: A new song every week until the election.

The 4K/UHD podcast is back again this week with more great joking around and fun stuff.

All of this is available in UHD on YouTube by searching "Glossy Podcast" or as an MP3 on iTunes by searching "Glossy News".

Here are the topics covered in the the June 13th, 2016 edition.

* CD & Game store clerked asked "Can I help you find something?" And the answer was clearly no because the question was impossible... but he still somehow knew the answer. Amazing how good customer service can be.

* My buddy Matthew shared the story of his first day at his new post as a priest in a rough part of Philly.

* VR headsets are the hottest new thing, but apparently for the actors and camera operators it can be so damn hard to use, but sometimes it's a bit softer.

* Billion dollar business idea for a kids clothing store that the market needs, but doesn't exist... yet. You guys are free to take this idea and run with it, no charge, no questions asked.

* My crazy mom found a great way to save money at the holidays while still doing fun things with the grandkids. She was a terrible cook, but not quite as bad as my grandma who only owned one spice, but oh my was it the rarest thing you've ever heard of.

* If dogs outlived humans, would we treat them as family heirlooms and celebrate the rarity of puppies the way we do baby tortoises?

* All in-laws are crazy, but some can be downright evil. I actually had to cut a bit out of this one because I went... a little too far with my explanation.

Here are the topics covered in the the June 6th, 2016 edition.

* The worst designed feature (or lack thereof) of portable SD card speakers.

* Batman v. Superman review... it wasn't that bad, and it was only bad in the ways you'd expect. Tell me if you agree in the comments.

* Bad news: you're choking on an ice cream cone. Good news: your mom is a nurse. Bad news: she's absolutely terrible at her job.

* My last ever update on my Reddit karma project... or is it?

* Meet the man with a real life super power. Imagine being able to conjur money out of thin air. Well, it's kind of like that but with a twist.

* Billion Dollar Business Idea: Very special athletes deserve a very special olympics. There are sports missing from the current lineup which would not only empower participants as athletes and celebrities, but also bring in legions of fans with cash in hand.

* 4K Review of the Netflix hit film "Circle" starring Julie Benz... yeah, it's pretty awesome.

The 4K/UHD podcast is back again this week with with with some more serious, kind of heavy stuff.

All of this is available in UHD on YouTube by searching "Glossy Podcast" or as an MP3 on iTunes by searching "Glossy News".

Here are the topics covered in the the May 9th, 2016 edition.

* The pill addiction epidemic is sweeping the nation. Poly-drug overdose is killing more young people like Heath Ledger, Brittney Murphy, and most recently, a close friend of mine.

* How to save money on gas using supermarket rewards cards, even if you don't have one. It's surprisingly easy.

* Shocking new stats about HIV prevalence among American males, specifically in California, inlcuding some of the richest neighborhoods.

* It looks like I just got an acting job in an upcoming feature-length film... not video, a movie shot on actual film. The director has an actual budget and a YouTube channel with millions of views. I'll update more later.

* Microsoft isn't merely offering us all Windows 10 for free, they're badgering the hell out of us to install it. Is it better? No, they're not exactly claiming that, but it's prettier. So based on that we should TOTALLY risk our entire systems just so they can sell us more crap we don't need.

* Review of the ESPN film "30 for 30: Frightful Lies". It's very well made, as all the 30 for 30 series are, but it's chilling and shocking. The criminal justice system is broken beyond repair when investigators, prosecutors and judges refuse to shut down trials even in the face of clear evidence of innocence.

* Interview with a verified crack addict. He explains how Pac-Man led Gen-Xers to the rave scene and the many ways addiction lead to weigth loss.

* The best and easiest way to pick up a second job in America.

* The best way to never not give away your not quite free garbage can at a premium, if that makes sense, and I'm sure it does.

* Kids love fancy meals, but given the choice between the fanciest of feasts, much like finicky kitties, they'll still choose the tried and true, even if it's much cheaper.

* Is Quentin Tarantina a box-office slayer, or just a hack who gets by on his natural good looks?

* What it's like when someone with Bi-Polor goes off of medication.

The 4K/UHD podcast is back again this week with even more great insightful than ever.

All of this is available in UHD on YouTube by searching "Glossy Podcast" or as an MP3 on iTunes by searching "Glossy News".

Here are the topics covered in the the April 11th, tax day edition 2016 4K/UHD podcast.

* Tax Day public service announcement (PSA) about how to stay on top of your tax issues, and all the reasons you really, really need to do it.

* The study of what makes a good flag and the unveiling of the new, unofficial flag for the city of Seattle.

* Definitive proof that Facebook is a smart phone battery killer. Seriously, if you have problems with your smart phone battery, get rid of Facebook and Messenger (two separate apps!) to double or triple your battery life.

* Forget the Make-A-Wish Foundation. This new Keep-A-Wish Foundation will focus on kids who will also develop memories to last a lifetime, but specifically, lifetimes longer than a few weeks or months.

* Four ways to FAIL at silencing your phone in places where you're supposed to be quiet and respectful.

* 4K/UHD review of 2016 film Eddie the Eagle starring Hugh Jackman and Taron Egerton. It's a true-ish story and a wonderful film, with a few caveats.

* A quick explanation of the Panama Papers leak, why it might not be as bad as you think, and why it actually is. There are legit ways to do a shell corporation, but this isn't it.

* If you're sick of trying to talk reason to Trump supporters, have no fear, there is a solution. Just talk bullshit to them, as I have, and help them keep ratcheting up the crazy. They eat that stuff up like you wouldn't believe.

The 4K/UHD podcast is back with even more great stuff than ever.

All of this is available in UHD on YouTube by searching "Glossy Podcast" or as an MP3 on iTunes by searching "Glossy News".

Here are the topics covered in the the April 4th, 2016 4K/UHD podcast.

* In a neighborhood with a ton of burglaries and break ins, why in the hell is the local Dollar Tree selling $1 crow bars?

* Radio station request lines get some of the strangest callers during the overnight shift.

* Despite how easy it may seem, there is a reason why some of the smartest people alive could never write movie scripts, let alone music lyrics.

* Some elementary school teachers help their students understand the value of keeping a diary, but the lessons you learn may not always be the ones intended.

* Life Pro-Tip: Don't make videos of your kids' school assemblies and move-up ceremonies. You're a huge distraction, you're not enjoying the moment, and you will never, ever watch them.

* Best and worst ways for teachers to stay in touch with the class parents. Hint: make the bar to participation as low as possible or you'll piss off a lot of people, specifically the ones you never hear from. Guess what, they never hear from you either.

* There is a direct correlation between how well your family gets together at holidays and the quantity of alcohol consumed. This is doubly true when there's an election coming up, and if you live in America, there is ALWAYS an election coming up.

* Finally responding to all the swirling rumors, finally, an explanation as to why I simply WILL NOT date Taylor Swift.

* The definitive difference between a reason and an excuse. In short, you need a million excuses because they're all bogus, but you only need one reason because it's the real thing.

* Updates on the podcast traffic, viewership, listenership and streaming numbers, as well as on my Reddit experiment, which is dead.

* YouTube loves to rob their publishers and here are just a dozen examples how they do it and why. What can be done about it? Well, likely nothing, but it doesn't mean I can't complain.

* Interview with the maker of the "Jolly Roger Telephone Company," a free service designed to help you waste the time of telemarketers while just barely lifting a finger.

* Germans are not well known for their bartering skills, but teenage Germans have got to be the worst in at it in the world.

The first fully 4K/UHD podcast with live music, tons of graphics and citations and and a length we haven't seen in weeks. This podcast has it all.

All of this is available in UHD on YouTube by searching "Glossy Podcast" or as an MP3 on iTunes by searching "Glossy News".

Here are the topics covered in the the March 14th, 2016 4K/UHD podcast.

* Why the death penalty needs to be re-thought, and the one true way to do it properly, if we're not going to abolish it. Spoiler alert, Mythbusters are cited in this idea.

* Four ways to get cheap shoes for kids are shared, but the one you never thought of ranks at #1. It was right in front of you the whole time.

* Car commercials are unimaginative and frankly pretty ridiculous. They show dangerous cars. Why the hell would anyone want that?

* A live performance of "What will we do with the drunken sailor?" with a guitar and two mandolins, as part of our exclusive Saint Patrick's Day coverage.

* Some say Republicans will win in a landslide in November. They are wrong, but perhaps they don't realize exactly how ludicrous this is. As things stand now, the Dems will win the white house in November regardless of whom it is on either side. Here's why.

* The true story of when I went into a Thai business expecting to just do normal business, only to find it was a bit of an unsavory place, and how they treated me when I tried desperately to say no.

* A bonus Saint Paddy's day song (Black Velvet Band) performed live.
