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, 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...we're back after a long winter break, during which we had time to relax, then speed-read Fire and Fury and obsess over every last detail. We bring all that directly to your ears! Plus, 2012 is back! Bachmann, Romney, Kucinich (okay, wrong year) oh my! All that plus destructive men and their destructive buttons, Lizard Blizzards, and more!
This week on BTL, giggle attacks try to thwart us from talking indictment, but we persevere! Plus, an update on the GOP budget situation, a look at some surprise turns for 2018, new sexual assault allegations abound, and we take a very important look at Donald Trump interacting with some kids in costume. Also: Puerto Rico has no power. Still.
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 depths of the simple things Trump doesn't understand are amazing sometimes, right? Like how health insurance works, how press offices work, how Russia works. It's an adventure every day with this guy. Plus, meet Anthony Scaramucci - he's just like his namesake! And yeah, Sean Spicer is (was?) literally the worst kind of office person on earth. And maybe, just maybe, that's why we loved him.
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!
