This week BTL is back with an IN DEPTH discussion of the Democratic Debates, Puerto Rico’s amazing activism, and all the horrible news you missed while we were gone. Brent says some confusing things about Marianne Williamson (NOT ENDORSEMENT THINGS, CALM DOWN) but it gives us a chance to discuss our favorite topic - our prescience when it comes to presidential election cycles and how they work. Also, it’s summer recess in Congress which means…it’s townhall season! Go bug your reps!
This week on BTL, how shocked were you actually to hear that Joe Biden is the latest male politician to be inappropriately touching women? Like, on a scale of 1-I’ve seen 1000 pictures of him doing this? Plus, a shocking turn in the shocking story of a shocking decision to shockingly defund a program everybody basically likes for disabled people. And also a shocking story about polls. DRAMA AHEAD!
In Which We Discuss:
1. Alabamians proved they are only 50% outright monsters
2. Net Neutrality is dead, much like the free flow of information is about to be
3. The tax bill is finally solving some vital problems for the oft-ignored zillionaire set
4. In Paul Ryan’s dystopia, corporations are people and people are cattle and cattle should start having more children to feed the corporations
5. Donald Trump thinks we believe he could ever land Kirsten Gillibrand in a million years
6. Omarosa can’t stop, wont stop being fired

This week on BTL, sexual assault resignations continue, and yet the Orange Furher is still the president! Plus, Puerto Rico's Maria death count is nowhere near what the official count says, America's policy on Israel is being dictated by nothing related to what the official history of the region says, the firebunny video's truth isn't quite what one man says, and Donald Trump watches significantly more television than he himself says. Everybody is doing this saying thing wrong. Good grief.
This week on BTL, it's a special bicoastal rant-fest about the GOP tax bill, with the unexpected addition of a special Puerto Rico tax bill cameo! Plus, everything you need to know about Mike Flynn and what his plea deal means. Then a brief vacation in FoxNewsLand, a magical place where nothing much is wrong, Roy Moore doesn't exist, Mike Flynn hasn't turned yet, and there is no tax bill. Join us there for a few minutes, then call your reps because shit has gotten VERY real.
This week on the podcast, it's tax reform time! (Or it would be if the GOP didn't keep shooting themselves in the foot.) Also, now that the GOP is dying to have a pederast in the Senate, harassment accusations and hypocritical Twitter lectures are flying! Let's see what Trump what kind of trouble Trump can get into with those extra 140 letters! Plus, a real life hobby ghost hunter is coming to a court near you...if you live in Alabama. Of course.
This week on BTL, TOMORROW IS ELECTION DAY. Remember to vote - there's no presidential race but there is plenty happening at the local level and it'll be really embarrassing for you if you miss it! Also, we do a deep dive into the Donna Brazile conspiracy cave, and we're here to tell you all the sneaky things the GOP is trying to sneak into that tax bill. Plus, an attempted Bowling Green Massacre actually happened!! That and plenty more!
