BTL #294 - Brent's Back - 8/6/18

BTL #294 - Brent's Back - 8/6/18

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.

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

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 #264 - Agent Orange [w/ Esteban Gast]

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

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 #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 #254 - Branding Mediocrity - 7/24/17

BTL #254 - Branding Mediocrity - 7/24/17

This week on BTL, the depths of the simple things Trump doesn't understand are amazing sometimes, right? Like how health insurance works, how press offices work, how Russia works.  It's an adventure every day with this guy.  Plus, meet Anthony Scaramucci - he's just like his namesake!  And yeah, Sean Spicer is (was?) literally the worst kind of office person on earth. And maybe, just maybe, that's why we loved him.

BTL #242 - The European Margin of Error - 4/24/17

BTL #242 - The European Margin of Error - 4/24/17

This week on BTL, we do a deep dive into the French presidential elections because they're somehow even more entertaining than our own.  Then we review Trump's first 100 days; he doesn't have much to show for it, and let's hope this week doesn't change that. Plus, there's Georgia's 6th, Chaffez's last, and the Tom Perez/Bernie Sanders sideshow that perfectly sums up why "unity" is eluding the Dems. All that, plus an in-depth analysis of Bill O'Reilly's hopefully not-prophetic work of fiction in which an angry, disgraced newsman who's out of a job murders all of his enemies. Eek! Watch out, women everywhere.
