#213: The Unwifeable Mandy Stadtmiller
Daily Beast Columnist & Author of new book "Unwifeable" Mandy Stadtmiller & Gleib have a very real and honest conversation about what led to becoming, as she put it, "a crazy, coked up sex addict” and how she turned it around. Why she wrote a gossip and dating column for The New York Post and Xo Jane. She tells us about dating Keith Olberman. Aaron Sorkin, Moby, Marc Maron and Hannibal Buress, (Gleib debuts his impressions of Keith and Hannibal.) The reason the Roseanne reboot is getting insane ratings. The benefits of dirty talk. How she makes it work being married to a Trump supporter. Where she thinks Trump is misunderstood. Why Gleib thinks we’ve lost our core. Tonya Harding on Dancing with the Stars. War Games with South Korea. Kim Jong Un’s charm offensive and new love of K-Pop. The importance of context in reporting. Why it’s important to give slack to comedians. Trump sending our troops to the border. The importance of talking. And the beauty clause in Kim Kardashian’s will.

#210: We the People
Gleib moderates a panel of conservative comedians Mitch Burrow & Irina Skaya and liberal comedians Alonzo Bodden & Helen Hong live from the Hollywood Improv, tackling the big issues of the day.

News. Pop Culture. Random stuff. Everything that happened last week. In about an hour every Wednesday. Last Week on Earth is the white paper cone at the center of a cotton candy world. Gleib makes fun of politics on NPR, and pop culture on Chelsea Lately. On this show he does both. Sometimes he also has celebrity guests, who he talks with, mostly in English. (He apologizes to people who speak other languages, but wishes you would just get on board already.) If you've been in a coma for the last 7 days, this podcast will wake you up.
