This week on the podcast, we celebrate a major milestone and we do it AT POLITICON. That’s right, our 300th episode coincided with our favorite yearly gathering of shouting policy wonks and talking heads. Our thoughts on that, plus some polls and political shenanigans from the week in this very caffeinated special episode of BTL! Also Inside: our Cal Props Voter Guide.
This week on BTL, it’s election results galore! We’ll tell you why what you’ve been reading about what they mean isn’t totally true. Also, indictments/legal entanglements/lies galore! But don’t worry, according to Giuliani, the truth is not the truth anyway so what does it matter? It was a big two weeks and we’ve got it all right here!
This week on BTL, Brent makes his triumphant return. (Remember him?!) We give the play-by-play of who’s claiming they know the play-by-play of Don Jr.’s meeting with Russian officials, discuss the Kirstjen Nielsen “triumphant” trip to Puerto Rico to thank everybody for definitely not bungling the recovery efforts, and go deep into the Netroots-fueled 2020 speculation-mania! Plus there are primaries Tuesday, and don’t worry, John Kelly’s given up completely so his facial expressions will be around for years to come.
This week on BTL, Grant Sloss, our first ever guest host, returns to the studio as this week’s special guest co-host! We talk the SCOTUS Bachelorette, Trump’s horrible behavior at the NATO meeting, the UK’s superior sense of insult-crafting, and so much more! In the midst of the world ending, some good news even sneaks it’s way in. Tune in to find out what happened and why a family of Wisconsin woodchucks are this week’s American heroes!
This week on BTL, the hilarious Ramy Youssef joins us to chat about the (still) (forever) (consistently) (even when it defies logic) never-ending Obamacare dramas. Plus we've got the dirt on the Sanders Medicare-for-all bill, our review of the Great 2017 White House Greasy Chinese Food Bonanza that led to a...result of some sort (we'll update when we know exactly what it is), California, St. Louis, and the ongoing dramas of the Strange-Moore Alabama race. So just listen, okay? That means you.
This week on BTL...the endtimes are here! They apparently consist of wall-to-wall scary weather and newscasters insisting on going out in said weather. But we've got all the news you missed while watching Patrick Oppmann report live from the 150 mph gusts in Calbarien, Cuba. That includes the surprise breakout stars of the fall - Chuck and Nancy, out there saving us from ourselves (and Trump). We've also got all the news on DACA, De Vos's plan to ruin Title IX, and so much more!
