News. Pop Culture. Random sh*t. 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. Ben 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.
Actress Sophia Bush answers dirty questions for charity, and she and Gleib discuss the the end of One Tree Hill, Manscaping, LA car fires, Rick Santorum praying the gay away, Lady Gaga kissing Mayor Bloomberg, New Year’s resolutions, Sophia’s desire to kill people, the charitable tendencies of Ben’s p***s, Egypt, Russian ice dancing, why we need to F Cancer, Chris Brown and Rihanna tweeting each other, why the world needs to sign the “Don’t be a d!ck pledge,” if Jersey Shore is bad for Italians, animals VS people, Obama signing the NDAA into law and how he’s not gangster enough for Don Cheadle, Sophia’s directing, Occupy Wall Street, the Republican demonizing of Planned Parenthood, Iran, the danger of water bottles, a w***e house for aliens, Palin not knowing what she’s saying, politicians’ lack of principles, selfishness and Ayn Rand’s Fountainhead, and their differing thoughts on glitter. Plus… THE THUNDER ROUND!
