There was no shortage of great things to talk about on this episode.  We comment on all the great TV shows and movies we are currently enjoying.  We talk about a lot of trailers that were just released.  (Star Wars!  Jurassic World!  True Detective Season 2!  Love & Mercy!)  This was a lot of fun to record.  It was recorded right before Pat was sucked into a tornado.  Enjoy!

We had a TON of fun hanging out and talking some pop culture with Pat's brother Tom and Pat's fiancee, Sam.  We talk about that crazy final episode of the Jinx.  There will be rap-style horns.  There will be laughs.  And of course, Papa Roach.  Enjoy!

This is a BIG episode.  You can almost treat this as two separate episodes.  In the first half, we talk about a lot of new TV shows and movies that we may not have covered prior to the the Academy Awards.  We sit down with our great friend, "Broccoli" Rob Wozniak and chat about pop culture news.  Pat also presents us with a surprising original song that he cooked up!

Starting at the 47:08 minute mark, we beging our talk about the amaing HBO show, "The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst".  The season finale airs tonight at 8pm EST.  If you guys just want to listen to our recap and predictions for the show, you can skip ahead.  Or, if you don't want to be spoiled, go watch it right now on demand or on HBO: Go!  It is only 5 episodes.  Then, come back - Listen to the rest of our podcast, and watch the Jinx tonight.

Also, we have a brief EXCLUSIVE interview with Robert Durst, himself.  He stops by the Gleam Team studio to clear the air.  This was a momentous occasion for us all.


As promised, we recorded a live podcast during the commercials of the Oscars at our very own Oscar Party!

Thank you to everyone who came to the party: (In no particular order) - Tom Laforgia, Scott Eshelman, Samantha Blizzard, Shelly Fallon, Mike Pritchard, Karin Swartz, Tom Hanks

This gets more off-the-rails as the times goes on.  It got late.  Champagne made us tired and punchy.  If you listen to this one all the way through, you are a TRUE Gleam Team fan.  Enjoy!

The Academy Awards will be airing TOMORROW!  Hear our picks for tomorrow's show. and enjoy our shenanigans.  Also, we had to Skype Pat in for this episode due to a snowstorm (which happens to knock out our Internet near the end of this episode... Don't worry, no Pats were harmed during the recording of this podcast.).

Also, BIG IMPORTANT NEWS - We will be live tweeting and LIVE PODCASTING (during the commercials) tomorrow night!

This episode is a riff-fest.  We, of course, talk about what movies and TV we've been watching.  We also deliver several new segments to the podcast with some great, new musical interludes from Matt.  Enjoy!

In this episode, the team goes over the highs and lows of the 2015 Golden Globes.  We also get a bit ridiculous.

Also, please be sure to head over to

Derek is a friend of the podcast, and he is dealing with Chronic Hereditary Pancreatitis.  He is raising money on fundrazr for his surgery expenses, and we would GREATLY appreciate it if you donated any amount of money you can spare.

2014 will be over before you know it.  Take a look back at our favorite movies, books, TV shows, video games of 2014.  We realize that the thing we love the most is getting off-topic and going on tangents.  (This will likely not change in 2015...) Thank you to all of our listeners for supporting us this year.  We truly appreciate it.  Thanks, everyone!
