BTL #302 - Election Reflection [w/ Grant Sloss] - 11/12/18

We brought podcast friend-extraordinaire Grant Sloss back into the studio to discuss the results (some still forthcoming!!) of the 2018 midterms. Fun was had by all! Then…the aftermath. We told you Trump would get a little crazy, right? We were right.

BTL #300 - Politicon 2018 / The Stress Is Getting To Us - 10/22/18

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.

BTL #267 - The Real Bowling Green Massacre - 11/6/17

BTL #267 - The Real Bowling Green Massacre - 11/6/17

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!

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

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 #249 - Long-Winded Details - 6/21/17

This week on the podcast, travel through random election Tuesday with us as we learn the results of the Georgia and South Carolina special elections! Plus some thoughts on the AHCA, why it's bad, and how we can stop it.  Also, the speculation can finally cease -- we've heard Jared Kushner's voice and it's both super generic and not at all what we expected. Come for the election fun, stay for the healthcare!

BTL #246 - Very Good People - 5/30/17

BTL #246 - Very Good People - 5/30/17

This week on BTL, we add Jared Kushner to the list of Trump's “very good people” who may or may not have committed treason, plus Trump meets with the Pope (and, according to the internet, the twins from "The Shining") to talk peace, MLK, and other topics he already can't remember. Then we talk Trump and America through the real deal with NATO, and recall every hilarious golf cart-laden moment of the G7 Summit in Italy. Plus, inspired by the Luv Gov, the Alabama GOP is out early to get some Strange. All this plus rainbows and sunshine (ie doom and gloom predictions)! Hope you enjoyed your local Memorial Day parade and rested up over the holiday because the hits just keep coming!

BTL #233 - #ResistanceRecess - 2/21/17

This week on BTL, #ResistanceRecess has begun! Check online for events near you! Plus, this week had all the news and these days that doesn't even feel like a shock.  Flynn is out, Puzder is out, an epic Trump Press Conference graced the airwaves, a man literally named McMaster is in, and we celebrated new fake terrorism (#neverremember again and always).  Plus, Chris Christie unwittingly provides the perfect metaphor for this whole ride so far.  Check it out, rate us on iTunes and Stitcher, and leave a comment!

BTL #225 - Rant Day - 12/17/16

BTL #225 - Rant Day - 12/17/16

This week on a special bi-coastal BTL, we've got a few things to get off our chests.  Yes, we know all about Russia's hacking and yes we're horrified.  Yes we know all about the electoral college vote and yes we're terrified.  But no we wont accept that the Democrats lost this race solely because of James Comey and Voldermort Putin, and we'll tell you why politically it's not even worth making the claim.  Plus we're all over covering our history of fake news and future of fake morals!  Listen while you load of up on latke potatoes or Christmas ham (or a nondenominational food of your choice)!  Then give us the gift of a rating on iTunes.
