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, 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 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!
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!
When we promise you we’ll post something, you can count on us to post it…weeks later! 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!
