Meet the Candidates 2020: Tom Steyer

Meet the Candidates 2020: Tom Steyer

Electing a rich guy from New York with no obvious qualifications to be president is going so swimmingly, why not try it again? That’s the apparent logic behind native Upper East Sider, retired hedge funder, and anti-Trump commercial-maker Tom Steyer’s campaign for president.

BTL #321 - I Wrote The Bill - 7/5/19

This week BTL is back with an IN DEPTH discussion of the Democratic Debates, Puerto Rico’s amazing activism, and all the horrible news you missed while we were gone. Brent says some confusing things about Marianne Williamson (NOT ENDORSEMENT THINGS, CALM DOWN) but it gives us a chance to discuss our favorite topic - our prescience when it comes to presidential election cycles and how they work. Also, it’s summer recess in Congress which means…it’s townhall season! Go bug your reps!

When we promise you we’ll post something, you can count on us to post it…weeks later! That’s right, we’re putting up a supercut of the audio from our wild weekend at Politicon!  Check out some clips from the awesome panels and get our thoughts on Ann Coulter’s sanity, our unending love for the queen of 2017 Symone Sanders, and the bathroom habits of Trump supporters.  It’s all here, so enjoy!

BTL #218 - Bad Hombre - 10/24/16

This week on BTL, we've got all the bad hombres, nasty women, and important updates from the final presidential debate.  (Thank god these are over.)  Plus, recent polls are showing thatTrump really doesn’t have much to worry about in the way of rigged elections...he'd have to be close to winning one first.  But don't worry, the rich always come out on top, and Il Duce is no different - Trump TV is the latest business scam hounding this election and it's a doozy!  Tune in, tune up, tune around, and listen to an all new BTL.  Most importantly, it's that time again so REMEMBER TO VOTE!  We'll have a prop cheat sheet up on the site this week!

BTL #217 - The Bad News Brain Trust [Special Guests: Chuck Ludwig/Julianne Simitz] - 10/17/16

This week the hosts of Bad News Live stopped by the studio to chat all things election with us and they were a delight!  Joins us as we talk Trump, butt heads in the friendliest of ways over Hillary Clinton, and wonk out together over where oh where this is possibly going to lead.  Oh, and you know we didn't forget about Chris Christie, right?  We'd never.

On this week's BTL, we talked voting, third parties, Libertarians, Ralph Nader, and more with GREEN PARTY PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE JILL STEIN!  Check out our chat with her, some dispatches from her Pershing Square rally, and of course all the bafoonery around the second presidential debate, Donald Trump pussy-grabbing, Hillary Clinton wall street speeches, and everything else that happened in this absurdly packed week!

BTL #215 - We're Back! - 10/3/16

Welcome back listeners! It's been an exciting three weeks are we're ready to dive back in.  We fit this week's record between readings of the 233 page California Official Voters Information Guide (233!  That many!), and it's jam packed! We've got the dirt on the first presidential debate and the ensuing melodramas of The Donald v. Women, The Donald v. Taxes, and The Donald v. Twitter.  Plus, 2016 is the year of the non-endorsement, Californians might not live to see the outcome of this horrible presidential race (earthquakes around every corner), and the Senate is furious that Obama doesn’t control the laws of time and space.  It was a great week for our triumphant return and we can't wait to dive in!

BTL #214 - Our Local Taco Truck - 9/6/14

This week on BTL, we've cover the important news: Bobby Pin-Gate 2016, Michele Bachmann's latest talking spell, and, Hillary Clinton's continued technological failings.  Oh, and I guess while we're at it we get to Trump's surprise Mexico trip (?!!?!), polls, some news about where on earth Clinton's been for the last month, and other more traditional "news" news. We bring it all because we care.  We're THOSE friends.  You're welcome.
