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!

BTL #315 - She Has A Plan For That - 5/6/19

This week on the podcast, William Barr doesn’t like Mueller’s attitude when it comes to…William Barr’s lying. (How very dare he write a strongly worded letter suggesting the truth is the truth! Honestly!) And remember the days when we were finally announcing who WASN’T going to run for president?  Those days were nice… Plus Elizabeth Warren has a plans for that. And a t-shirt for that. And we want that t-shirt. Come for the jokes, stay for the rants about how we have no Senate candidates anymore because everybody is running for president!

BTL #312 - Inappropriate Hair-Smelling - 4/1/19

This week on BTL, how shocked were you actually to hear that Joe Biden is the latest male politician to be inappropriately touching women? Like, on a scale of 1-I’ve seen 1000 pictures of him doing this? Plus, a shocking turn in the shocking story of a shocking decision to shockingly defund a program everybody basically likes for disabled people. And also a shocking story about polls. DRAMA AHEAD!

BUT, despite what you’re reading, we give you some reasons to hope! Plus, we’ve got all the presidential news that’s fit to print and a reminder that all you need to do to get gun control moving is…decide to do it. Action begins with the intention to take literally any action. Stay strong out there!
