BTL #249 - Long-Winded Details - 6/21/17

This week on the podcast, travel through random election Tuesday with us as we learn the results of the Georgia and South Carolina special elections! Plus some thoughts on the AHCA, why it's bad, and how we can stop it.  Also, the speculation can finally cease -- we've heard Jared Kushner's voice and it's both super generic and not at all what we expected. Come for the election fun, stay for the healthcare!

This week on BTL, it's Pride's #resistmarch day and we're fresh from laying real human eyes on the inimitable Maxine Waters!  Plus, British election results, Comey's testimony, John McCain's senility, and so much more.  You wont want to miss this or our coverage of the anti-Sharia protests that were oddly sweeping the nation this week too.  What a week!

BTL #247 - Bilateral Talks - 6/6/17

BTL #247 - Bilateral Talks - 6/6/17

This week, it's our first even international BTL! We spent it discussing important matters like the Paris Climate Accords, the AHCA and health insurance markets, Britain's upcoming election, and COVFEFE. Yeah, we're not above it. We're not above it at all.  Tune in for the carefully considered thoughts on the health insurance industry, environmental policy discussion, and...silly jokes because the president can't type/spell/stay awake while tweeting!

BTL #246 - Very Good People - 5/30/17

This week on BTL, we add Jared Kushner to the list of Trump's “very good people” who may or may not have committed treason, plus Trump meets with the Pope (and, according to the internet, the twins from "The Shining") to talk peace, MLK, and other topics he already can't remember. Then we talk Trump and America through the real deal with NATO, and recall every hilarious golf cart-laden moment of the G7 Summit in Italy. Plus, inspired by the Luv Gov, the Alabama GOP is out early to get some Strange. All this plus rainbows and sunshine (ie doom and gloom predictions)! Hope you enjoyed your local Memorial Day parade and rested up over the holiday because the hits just keep coming!

BTL #245 - American Nutjob - 5/24/17

This week on a bicoastal BTL, a sinkhole opened up right next to Mar-A-Lago RIGHT BEFORE WE STARTED RECORDING THIS PODCAST. That's real life.

BTL #244 - To State The Obvious - 5/15/17

This week on BTL, Brent is back! We dive into the week in Nixonian shenanigans starting with Yates ending with the Comey firing and circling back to why on earth Trump is mentioning "tapes" and other RED FLAGS on Twitter.  Plus we've got the latest on the many many (many) celebrities who now, thanks to Trump, think the presidency is within reach. All this and much more! Stay tuned and welcome back Brent!

BTL #243 - Press-Palooza [w/ Dmitry Zotman] - 5/8/17

BTL #243 - Press-Palooza [w/ Dmitry Zotman] - 5/8/17

Dmitry Zotman sits in for Brent as we discuss the AHCA (aka Achoo) passage in the house, the RELIEF of a boring moderate winning the French presidential elections (how far we've fallen), the chaos in Venezuela, Trump’s Monday press storm, and more!  And a speedy recovery to Brent, whose trip to Mexico left him with a terrible death-illness that Donald Trump's continued existence is NOT helping go away.

BTL #242 - The European Margin of Error - 4/24/17

This week on BTL, we do a deep dive into the French presidential elections because they're somehow even more entertaining than our own.  Then we review Trump's first 100 days; he doesn't have much to show for it, and let's hope this week doesn't change that. Plus, there's Georgia's 6th, Chaffez's last, and the Tom Perez/Bernie Sanders sideshow that perfectly sums up why "unity" is eluding the Dems. All that, plus an in-depth analysis of Bill O'Reilly's hopefully not-prophetic work of fiction in which an angry, disgraced newsman who's out of a job murders all of his enemies. Eek! Watch out, women everywhere.
