Chapo Trap House
Podcast by Chapo Trap House
The boys celebrate one year of Chapo by revisiting great past moments on the show with History of the World: Part I-style reenactments. Then they go on and reenact moments from The Ricky Gervase Show, WTF with Marc Maron, Serial, HBO's The Jinx, and more.
After provoking a storm of activity in the world of Garfield gender canonicity, Virgil holds to the line that he (... eventually) gave outlets including the Washington Post: Garfield is a man. With special guest Leyawn, the animated bird from Twitter, the boys discuss this and other comix capers. A 15-hour live-action Garfield fan film(?!) is briefly mentioned. And we check in on Chapo favorite and honorary dryboy, Caleb Jacoby. Remember, Mondays are haram.
Last week's guest exercises his right of reply and challenges Mr. Traphouse to join him in his lair for tea and conversation. The boys and Amber deride the "Bluëxit"(?) fantasy and hunt the AEI's natty duck Arthur Brooks. They end with another pre-taped call-in show, which includes a tragically short Metal Gear analysis and some tantalizing hints of a Chapo future.
The boys discuss Ridley Scott's The Duellists, and the historical significance of Napoleon, with guest Twitter's Trillburne, who's starting his own all-Napoleon podcast.
This week's show begins with a high-wire solo performance by Brendan that is pretty 👌. I don't know what happens after that yet!
Animé has done more to preserve European identity than the Republican party ever has. (Richard Spencer)Will, Felix, Matt and Amber talk to Angela Nagle about the contradictions the alt-right inherits from its incel *chan animé-Nazi roots. Her article, Paleocons for Porn.
Well, I do declare, that if a man should be in that there Google Chrome, and he opens a window in the incognito, anything he looks at is not illegal. Now look, I may be a simple country lawyer and senator, but I swear on the memory of General Lee that you cannot be convicted of downloading pornographic images and video of the child persuasion if you mosey on down in that incognito window.This week's Grey Wolf episode previews incriminating comments from three top Trump officials wedged between MMA-watching hippie musings on the Joe Rogan Experience, and talks about a YDS panel on cultural appropriation and identity politics. It's the Chapos w/ guest Shuja Haider.
Okay, disruption 2.0: Chicago Police Department 2.0. Let's have a precinct that we don't tell anyone about. Let's have a precinct where we can take people, and we don't register them, we don't officially arrest them, we don't fingerprint them, we just take them to a room, and we disrupt.On this week's regular show, it's the original dry boys, Matt, Felix, and Will, recording from Felix's unsanitary new Greenpoint FOB. They're mostly stuck talking about Trump news like the rest of us. Fortunately, there's a B story about the show APB, on how drones and apps are the future of law enforcement, which will be live-streamed by Officer Pewdiepie.
The thing about Patriots Day that really impressed me was how it really expands on the Boston cinematic universe. Boston of course was a fictional city created in the film Good Will Hunting and was then used subsequently in The Departed and The Town of course but it's in Patriots Day that i feel like it really almost comes alive. They have a fake police department, a fake marathon. They continued that really silly funny accent they put on. It's really an incredible achievement that rivals the Marvel universe and other similar creations i think. And i think Markie Mark's gonna probably win an Oscar for this one.That's from the cold open, contributed by Matt V. Brady. In this week's Grey Wolf special show the boys discuss the apparently real movie, Patriots Day, about the Boston bombing, which actually sounds pretty good.
