BTL #263 - An Education [w/ West Hollywood Mayor John Heilman] - 10/9/17

This week on the podcast, West Hollywood Mayor John Heilman stops by amidst the chaos to talk about resistance at the local level. Plus we've got updates on the gun control discussion (or lack thereof) post-Vegas, some weird new story elements in the reality show that is life with Donald Trump, a look at the chaos in Catalonia, and more!

BTL #261 - A Dotard in Nambia [w/ special guest Thomas Dale] - 9/25/17

This week on BTL, comedian Thomas Dale joins us to talk UN, North Korea, healthcare and...dotards. Obviously. We've got everything from Trump's amazing/disastrous UN visit, the war of words between "Rocket Man" and our own national "Dotard," healthcare that's risen from the dead and about to destroy everything we hold dear, and the most/only interesting thing that's every happening in the history of football (sorry Brent!).  All that plus our usual lunacy!

BTL #260 - Wildcard Socialism [w/ Ramy Youssef] - 9/18/17

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.

BTL #259 - A Person That Is Still Here. Talking. - 9/11/17

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!

That’s right, we’re putting up a supercut of the audio from our wild weekend at Politicon!  Check out some clips from the awesome panels and get our thoughts on Ann Coulter’s sanity, our unending love for the queen of 2017 Symone Sanders, and the bathroom habits of Trump supporters.  It’s all here, so enjoy!

BTL #254 - Branding Mediocrity - 7/24/17

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.

BTL #253 - The Handshake - 7/17/17

This week on BLT, there's lots to discuss. The Senate health bill, John McCain's head-health, Donald Trump Jr's legal fees, it's all so much!  But none of it was quite as important as the 30+ second mega-handshake seen round the world.  Tune in for all that and a sinkhole!

BTL #252 - Lesson Unlearned - 7/11/17

This week on BTL, we ONCE AGAIN try our hand at reporting late-breaking and oh-so-exciting news! #TrumpRussia is getting really delicious...and by that we mean scary.  Also we've got dispatches from America's president's trip to the G20 and our president's trip to the G20, as well as some thoughts on Mark Penn's failing-ness and the permanent tragedy that is Chris Christie.  Oh, and healthcare updates.  Duh!
