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 #295 - Watergate Pt. II - 8/20/18

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!

BTL #273 - Lizard Blizzard - 1/10/18

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!

BTL #256 - When Even The "Best Words" Fail - 8/21/17

This week.  We can't even.

COME ON, EVERYBODY.  This is ridiculous.  We had to invent a "Nazi" tag for this week. That's what's going on this week.  (But don't worry, we have theories!  Also, we have the few minorly-funny-but-actually-kind-of-scary things that happened.  We tried.)

BTL #255 - Politicon 2017: Too Many Thoughts - 7/31/17

We're flying rundown-free because we snuck this recording in after a packed weekend at Politicon, but we've got our reactions to the comic-con for wonks, plus of course the healthcare vote, Priebus exit, Scaramucci living up to his operatic name, Trump's VERY on-brand boy scouts speech, and more!
