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 March 28th, 2016 4K/UHD podcast.

* 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.

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.

* Easter fun at the Old Cannery Furniture Warehouse in Sumner, Washington.

* Why you should definitely help kids (even if they aren't yours) enjoy traditions like Easter Egg Hunts.

* Video of a girl dressed like Mini Mouse who totally looks like Emily Axford from College Humor.

* How to do a dead-perfect, spot-on parody (courtesy of Key Of Awesome and Pitbull/Kesha via Vevo.)

* The complete guide to the best and worst Easter candy... okay, just a short list of things to avoid, really.

* 15 Easter jokes all mashed into one.

* 4K/UHD review of "Better Call Saul" on AMC, and a quick shout out to the lasting awesomeness of "Breaking Bad."

Mar 13, 2016

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.

After the burglary, find out the future of the podcast. Did insurance cover the loss? Was there a second break-in attempt? Will the podcast limp along or come back better 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 March 7th, 2016 4K/UHD podcast.

* Hyper-miling. It's not just a great way to save gas, but you can also use it to torture your passengers, and I tell you how!

* Life ProTip: How to fix a clogged toilet without ever getting so much as a speck of poo on your arms, face, or accidentally open mouth... or intentionally open mouth, either way.

* There are two ways Trump can still lose the nomination, but one you haven't heard about yet... but Reagan and Bush did it, so it's not all that crazy.

* There are more medieval weapons in existence today than there ever was in medieval times. Good thing? Bad thing? Spoiler, it's neither, it's just a thing.

* My parents took me camping, hiking, fishing and kiting, but there's a very good reason why I don't do any of these things with my kids. The answer may surprise you, but it probably won't, you know, unless you're not thinking these things through quite as much as you should.

* 4K Review of Drunk History with Derek Waters PLUS a crazy idea for how you could take this same format and make something really amazing out of it.
