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.
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!
This week on BTL...the endtimes are here! They apparently consist of wall-to-wall scary weather and newscasters insisting on going out in said weather. But we've got all the news you missed while watching Patrick Oppmann report live from the 150 mph gusts in Calbarien, Cuba. That includes the surprise breakout stars of the fall - Chuck and Nancy, out there saving us from ourselves (and Trump). We've also got all the news on DACA, De Vos's plan to ruin Title IX, and so much more!
This week on BTL, when will the powers that be agree that America has been through enough?! This week we did it all: re-lived the horrors of election 2016 in football form, re-lived the horrors of Antonin Scalia in Trump-SCOTUS-pick form, celebrated the alt-facts version of Black History Month (thanks white people for creating black history!), commemorated the worst imaginary terrorist attack to ever hit US soil (#NeverRemember), and accidentally thwarted a coup attempt by cleverly allowing a complete idiot to attempt a coup with any professional assistance. Though this week felt like seven months in thought-time, we can confirm that it's only been one week in real time and the fact that we made it through is certainly something to celebrate. Join the fun!
This week on BTL...GOSSIP! Nothing like some good old infighting among the Democrats to get us excited about the endless casual insult and loaded compliment possibilities! Plus we've got primary results from Kentucky and Oregon, an attempt to refute accepted science (Republicans get away with that all the time so why not us?) and detailed reports of the greatest day in Congressional history. Finally, we're almost as cool as the British! Oh, and Oklahoma is up to legit shenanigans in their quest to rid the state of doctors and women...or at least that's what we assume their crazy abortion bill is all about. That and tons more if you click RIGHT HERE!
This week on BTL, MSNBC is shocked, shocked, shocked when the Michigan primary results are exactly what their own exit polls predicted. Plus, this is the week we reached peak Trump: he gave us the best hour of television in American history not to be confused with the best reminder possible that he's a dangerous lunatic that must be stopped. And Hillary Clinton might be channeling her Goldwater Gal past a little too clearly these days. And of course we have election results, a look to this week's primaries, and polling galore!
This week on BTL...195 Countries are willing to take a chance on believing in climate change, which is a far better percentage than in our own Congress. Womp womp. And Ted Cruz is surging in Iowa while continuing to be in an irrelevant kind second place nationally. Life/New Hampshire can work in mysterious ways. Plus, Trump once again won the internet by losing at reasonable thought, but all this might be adding up to the most deliciously contentious GOP convention in recent history. We literally CANNOT WAIT. BRING ON THE DELEGATE THEFT! Unfortunately, regardless of what happens next the rent will remain too damn high because Jimmy McMillan is sick of wasting his time trying to solve this for us ungrateful fools who never elected him. Goodbye to all that needed discussion about rent and unneeded discussion about McMillan's his facial hair. We'll miss you both! All this and tons more! What a week!
This week on BTL...Tuesday’s election results were total garbage. You guys have to remember to vote (Kentucky, we're talking to you)! Also, don't bother learning anything about the life story of GOP frontrunner Ben Carson. Apparently it's all a lie AND science isn't science and history isn't really history and everything you know is wrong. Don't worry though, he promises from the bottom of his heart that the anecdote about him stabbing somebody is totes true. Plus, we'll tell you everything you didn't even know you didn't know about MSNBC's (secret?) Democratic candidates forum, last month's impressive jobs numbers, and the latest in the war on Christmas. Oh, and Sinkhole radio returns with an important PSA so listen like your life depends on it!
