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 #253 - The Handshake - 7/17/17

BTL #253 - The Handshake - 7/17/17

This week on BLT, there's lots to discuss. The Senate health bill, John McCain's head-health, Donald Trump Jr's legal fees, it's all so much!  But none of it was quite as important as the 30+ second mega-handshake seen round the world.  Tune in for all that and a sinkhole!

BTL #224 - Losing the Cold War - 12/13/16

This week on BTL, it's Red Scare Pt. II: the one where we actually lose the Cold War!  Welcome to life in the modern USSR.  sS far it's mostly viewings of The Apprentice and the promise of starvation wages but Trump is brewing up some additional cabinet trouble so stay tuned.  Of course no viewing of The Apprentice is as bad as listening to Ted Cruz describe his love of queso.  Plus, DNC updates, adventures in deal-making, and more!  Listen if you dare!  (But seriously, please listen.  Listening is fun!)

BTL #223 - A Bad Deal - 12/4/16

BTL #223 - A Bad Deal - 12/4/16

This week on BTL, we've got all the latest from the last TWO weeks!!  Special attention is paid, of course to the reverse love triangle that is Trump-Romney-Kellyanne Conway, but we've also got lessons in (non)diplomacy from our incoming POTUS, the legacy of the man simply known as Fidel, and the fatal sign that your latest accomplishment was REAL unimpressive: Sarah Palin joining Democrats to condemn it.  All that plus our recount-fever update, and the story of the giant, purposeless Holiday Hole.

BTL #195 - The Bathroom Line - 4/4/16

This week on another bi-coastal BTL, Hillary goes full "Shillary" on a Greenpeace activist, causing the world's greatest photo (at left) to be taken.  She's super tired of being attacked for her record and is withholding any debating pearls of genius from the state of New York until we all agree to stop talking about it.  Things aren't going much better on the right, where all three candidates are now refusing to vote for each other.  It's a real race through Wisconsin and onto New York, where we assume Trump will explain which of the five positions he expressed on abortion this week are actually his.  Then we're on to a rundown of the GOP's slate of lesser-known presidential candidates, at least one of whom thinks God has cured him of leukemia three times.  Enjoy this primary downtime with us as your guides!

BTL #187 - Disappointing Wins, Victorious Losses - 2/8/16

BTL #187 - Disappointing Wins, Victorious Losses - 2/8/16

This week on BTL, literally everything happened.  The Iowa Caucuses!  A Democratic Debate!  A Republican Debate!  It was a bonanza of everything we love and hold dear.  We've got caucus results, polling heading into New Hampshire (it's on Tuesday!), and rampant speculation about South Carolina, plus, find our why we're totally over Chris Wallace, totally into DeRay McKesson, and totally pissed at Gloria Steinem.  And if all that wasn't enough, Sinkhole Radio is back!  What a whirlwind!

BTL #186 - How To Caucus Wisely - 2/1/16

BTL #186 - How To Caucus Wisely - 2/1/16

IOWA, IT'S TIME TO CAUCUS!!  We have everything here need to know going into today's official start of the primary season, plus all the dirt on the Hillary and Bernie's newly agreed upon Democratic Debate schedule, last week's Trump-less but not very reassuring GOP Debate (were they all always so boring?), and Hillary's never-ending email dramas.  All that plus we've reached maximum rage in the Flint water scandal/atrocity/fucking terribleness, and we have some important lessons for the GOP about when a group of liars should try to fool the judicial system and when they should just...stay home.  Follow along all week as we report and dissect the Iowa results!

BTL # 176 - The Scientific Method - 11/9/15

BTL # 176 - The Scientific Method - 11/9/15

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!
