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!

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 #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!

BTL #249 - Long-Winded Details - 6/21/17

This week on the podcast, travel through random election Tuesday with us as we learn the results of the Georgia and South Carolina special elections! Plus some thoughts on the AHCA, why it's bad, and how we can stop it.  Also, the speculation can finally cease -- we've heard Jared Kushner's voice and it's both super generic and not at all what we expected. Come for the election fun, stay for the healthcare!

This week on a bicoastal BTL, a sinkhole opened up right next to Mar-A-Lago RIGHT BEFORE WE STARTED RECORDING THIS PODCAST. That's real life.

BTL #243 - Press-Palooza [w/ Dmitry Zotman] - 5/8/17

BTL #243 - Press-Palooza [w/ Dmitry Zotman] - 5/8/17

Dmitry Zotman sits in for Brent as we discuss the AHCA (aka Achoo) passage in the house, the RELIEF of a boring moderate winning the French presidential elections (how far we've fallen), the chaos in Venezuela, Trump’s Monday press storm, and more!  And a speedy recovery to Brent, whose trip to Mexico left him with a terrible death-illness that Donald Trump's continued existence is NOT helping go away.

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.
