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?

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!

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!

BTL #252 - Lesson Unlearned - 7/11/17

This week on BTL, we ONCE AGAIN try our hand at reporting late-breaking and oh-so-exciting news! #TrumpRussia is getting really delicious...and by that we mean scary.  Also we've got dispatches from America's president's trip to the G20 and our president's trip to the G20, as well as some thoughts on Mark Penn's failing-ness and the permanent tragedy that is Chris Christie.  Oh, and healthcare updates.  Duh!

This week on BTL, Wealthcare is still anybody is talking about, and we're here to give you a running list of who, to date, is for it, against it, undecided, and especially evil. Plus, some thoughts on the GOP and guns, the Democrats and women, single-payer's worst enemies, and our "new" policies on Cuba. And finally, Jesus Christ, will we ever get a guilty verdict in the police the shooting of an innocent black man (or woman... or child...)?!
