BTL #293 - Balloon Baby [w/ guest host Grant Sloss] - 7/16/18

This week on BTL, Grant Sloss, our first ever guest host, returns to the studio as this week’s special guest co-host! We talk the SCOTUS Bachelorette, Trump’s horrible behavior at the NATO meeting, the UK’s superior sense of insult-crafting, and so much more! In the midst of the world ending, some good news even sneaks it’s way in. Tune in to find out what happened and why a family of Wisconsin woodchucks are this week’s American heroes!

BTL #291 - 1950s Toddler - 6/18/18

This week on BTL, Trump tantrums his way around the G7, dictates his way through the U.S. - North Korea summit, and rips poor desperate immigrant families apart while we obsess about the California primaries! (Whose hobby is better? We’ll let you decide.) We’ve got results from CA and the other June 5th states, as well as some ire about the poor children being torn from their parents in the name of cruelty [cough]…sorry safety (?). All that plus visiting information if you want to get some facetime with Paul Manafort while he’s in jail. We all have a few things we’d like to say to his face, right?

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 #271 - Rains of Fire - 12/11/17

This week on BTL, sexual assault resignations continue, and yet the Orange Furher is still the president! Plus, Puerto Rico's Maria death count is nowhere near what the official count says, America's policy on Israel is being dictated by nothing related to what the official history of the region says, the firebunny video's truth isn't quite what one man says, and Donald Trump watches significantly more television than he himself says. Everybody is doing this saying thing wrong. Good grief.

BTL #264 - Agent Orange [w/ Esteban Gast]

This week on the podcast, the hilarious and charming Esteban Gast joins us in the studio to talk Puerto Rico, Trumpcare, Iran, and the giant clusterfuck nonsense blob that is Harvey Weinstein.  Plus we've got dispatches from the Value Voters Summit/ie a real life hate group, thoughts on the upcoming California senate primary, more natural disasters, and so much more. 

BTL #262 - North Korea to Kevin Bacon [w/ Ritza Bloom] - 10/2/17

BTL #262 - North Korea to Kevin Bacon [w/ Ritza Bloom] - 10/2/17

This week on BTL, the lovely Ritza Bloom joins us in the studio to talk about Trump's tax proposal, Puerto Rico's giant huge horrible terrible no good very bad humanitarian crisis, the plane-chartering habits of Trump's top swamp-drainers, Alabama's secret fury, and so much more! Most importantly, we do some in depth thinking about two of America's most important icons: Dennis Rodman and Cowboy Jesus.

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 #257 - In Id We Trust - 8/28/17

This week on BTL, we're back in the same room and ready to retrace the full saga of last week from Obama-pilfered Monday to insanity-laced Tuesday to Hurricane Friday. It was an exhausting beginning to a terrifying weekend filled with flooding, off-topic tweets, and resignations. Help us help you help everybody understand what on earth happened!
