Podcast: Chapo Trap House: Episode 96 - A Night At The Museum feat. Alex Jones (4/2/17)

The crew fields another celebrity voicemail, from Alex Jones (Tim Heidecker), acknowledging just a few blemishes in his 23 years of bravely reporting the truth and nothing but the truth, despite a literal nucular-style attack from the mainstream globalist media empire.
The lads then discuss Mike Pence's Rules For Dating Mother, the sad sacks at the DNC, why American health care sucks (more on that next week) and a magical reading series from National Review's Jay Nerdlinger about his field trip to the National Museum of African American History and Culture. He did not like it.

Podcast: Chapo Trap House: Episode 94 - The Brian Johnstown Massacre (3/26/17)

From the official description:
In our last show of the Pittsburgh Era, we reunite with Jacob Bacharach (@jakebackpack) to talk Scott Adams, hypnosis, the time he met Glenn Beck, and whether Dilbert has fucked.
I haven't listened yet but I remember reading a Dilbert collection where Adams noted that Dilbert has fucked, and that in the next panel his tie appeared flaccid instead of with its usual signature curl.

Podcast: Chapo Trap House: Episode 91 - The Lasagne Code feat. @Leyawn (3/17/17)

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.

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.

Podcast: Chapo Trap House: Episode 85 The Appropriators feat. Shuja Haider

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.

Podcast: Chapo Trap House: Episode 84 - President Wario (2/19/17)

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.

Podcast: Chapo Trap House: Episode 83 Boston Skrong

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.
