Download the MP3 Podcast

Import-Module grouppolicy
Get-GPO Remoting |Get-GPOReport -ReportType HTML -Path $report
start $report #open in a browser

Addendum/Erata: Get-GPOReport shows you more than just what is in the settings tab in the GPMC.  It also provides you the information that can be found in the other tabs when looking at a GPO in the GPMC.
