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, 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, we're back in the same room and ready to retrace the full saga of last week from Obama-pilfered Monday to insanity-laced Tuesday to Hurricane Friday. It was an exhausting beginning to a terrifying weekend filled with flooding, off-topic tweets, and resignations. Help us help you help everybody understand what on earth happened!
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.
This week on BTL, it's Red Scare Pt. II: the one where we actually lose the Cold War! Welcome to life in the modern USSR. sS far it's mostly viewings of The Apprentice and the promise of starvation wages but Trump is brewing up some additional cabinet trouble so stay tuned. Of course no viewing of The Apprentice is as bad as listening to Ted Cruz describe his love of queso. Plus, DNC updates, adventures in deal-making, and more! Listen if you dare! (But seriously, please listen. Listening is fun!)
This week on BTL, we've got all the latest from the last TWO weeks!! Special attention is paid, of course to the reverse love triangle that is Trump-Romney-Kellyanne Conway, but we've also got lessons in (non)diplomacy from our incoming POTUS, the legacy of the man simply known as Fidel, and the fatal sign that your latest accomplishment was REAL unimpressive: Sarah Palin joining Democrats to condemn it. All that plus our recount-fever update, and the story of the giant, purposeless Holiday Hole.
This week on BTL, shit is getting real here in Trumpistan! Transition team purges already underway? Sen. Jeff Sessions (not to be confused with Rep. Pete Sessions) as Attorney General? Rumors of a shortlist for other cabinet spots that seems like it's punking us? Yes (but no!!!!!!) to all. Plus, Clinton comes out of hiding, Trump violates his own rules and settles his Trump U case, the Democrats expand leadership to include everybody on earth! The election was tough, but now, more than ever, is when to pay attention! Things are about to get a little rocky.
Welcome back listeners! It's been an exciting three weeks are we're ready to dive back in. We fit this week's record between readings of the 233 page California Official Voters Information Guide (233! That many!), and it's jam packed! We've got the dirt on the first presidential debate and the ensuing melodramas of The Donald v. Women, The Donald v. Taxes, and The Donald v. Twitter. Plus, 2016 is the year of the non-endorsement, Californians might not live to see the outcome of this horrible presidential race (earthquakes around every corner), and the Senate is furious that Obama doesn’t control the laws of time and space. It was a great week for our triumphant return and we can't wait to dive in!
