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.

The 4K/UHD podcast is back again this week with with another insane podcast.

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 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.
