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.
Election Countdown: Nine Days! This week on BTL, we dissect they latest of many October Surprises - this has been the surprisiest final month in election history! Clinton's emails might be a non-starter, but the Comey controversy is just getting started. Plus, polls, Standing Rock, our first proof that voter fraud is real (among Trump voters, duh) and an update on Iceland's Pirate Party elections. WE'RE SO READY FOR THIS TO BE OVER!! But, then, what would we talk about?
On this week's BTL, we talked voting, third parties, Libertarians, Ralph Nader, and more with GREEN PARTY PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE JILL STEIN! Check out our chat with her, some dispatches from her Pershing Square rally, and of course all the bafoonery around the second presidential debate, Donald Trump pussy-grabbing, Hillary Clinton wall street speeches, and everything else that happened in this absurdly packed week!
This week on the podcast... Don't you want to have as much fun as Bill Clinton is having in this picture? Then listen to us discuss the DNC and all that transpired behind the scenes on this week's podcast! Plus, Trump's worst media week ever, and some nifty campaigning ideas for the progressives among us!
This week on BTL, we do our best to make up for our one-week absence! We try our hand at reporting breaking news, plus we've got a look ahead at the DNC and a look behind at the (terrifying, disorganized, slapstick-ridden) RNC. All that plus a discussion on the meaning of your vote and when voter outreach works and doesn't, plus an exciting (read: horrible) update on the week in racism. And jokes. We've got jokes too!
This week on BTL, we know it's hot and hard to focus on anything but popsicles and swimming pools, but we'd love some answers regarding what our actual election results were here! 1.5 million ballots still uncounted? Let's fix that! Then our two great loves, gun control and filibusters, collided last week for an epic democratic-led 15 hour gun control filibuster that warmed our hearts and lifted our spirits but possibly wont result in any actual change. And those are only two of the zillions of things we covered this week. We'd think of more to tease but it's too hot. Just listen. We promise it'll be fun.
