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, we get philosophical. Democracy as we knew it never really existed, wars rationale is in the eye of the beholder, and Michele Bachmann knows it all (according to her God). Plus, the Trump royal dramas begin (this is going to make a great TV show later), the House Intelligence Committee basically ends, and Alabama sends their sitting Governor, the "luv guv," to jail. Come for the news, stay for the sandal!
This week on BTL, the hilarious comedian/actor/fellow Bernie-phile Helen Hong joins us in the studio to talk Bernie, Hillary, Nunes (w/ new pronunciation!), treason, Trump, HB2 and so much more! Plus our heads simply cannot grasp the greatness that is Maxine Waters in a fight, the silliness that is Sean Spicer in a tan, and the awesomeness that is Justin Trudeau's history with Matthew Perry (pt 2!).
This week on BTL...do you want to cry tears of joy/frustration/helplessness/anger/inspiration? Good, because you'll have no choice if you try to watch Michelle Obama's final speech as FLOTUS. Other things that might make you cry include: basically anything else that's going on in America. Shootings (the domestic terror kind, stand down war hawks!), gaffes, ineptitude of the highest order by the seasoned professionals in Congress, and a few things that are so bad they're funny like the rumor Hillary Clinton is mulling over a run for the Mayor of NYC. First obstacle: she's never actually lived there. Okay, 2017, let the games begin!
Happy New Year, guys! This week on a (finally all new!) BTL...Congress gets off to the most embarrassing start possible, but they're finally sworn in so it's time to hit the phones and let them know we're watching! Plus, Donald Trump knows not what he does or thinks, but he seems to get credit for whatever happens to work out that day anyway. None of this, of course, is thanks to his cabinet appointments, which only seem to get worse with each passing moment, and none of it will change if the Democratic leadership in the Senate has anything to say about it. Oh, and Trump rang in the new year with a mobster named "Joey No Socks" because...of course. All this and tons more on our first podcast of 2017! Buckle up!
This week on a special bi-coastal BTL, we've got a few things to get off our chests. Yes, we know all about Russia's hacking and yes we're horrified. Yes we know all about the electoral college vote and yes we're terrified. But no we wont accept that the Democrats lost this race solely because of James Comey and Voldermort Putin, and we'll tell you why politically it's not even worth making the claim. Plus we're all over covering our history of fake news and future of fake morals! Listen while you load of up on latke potatoes or Christmas ham (or a nondenominational food of your choice)! Then give us the gift of a rating on iTunes.
Election Countdown: Nine Days! This week on BTL, we dissect they latest of many October Surprises - this has been the surprisiest final month in election history! Clinton's emails might be a non-starter, but the Comey controversy is just getting started. Plus, polls, Standing Rock, our first proof that voter fraud is real (among Trump voters, duh) and an update on Iceland's Pirate Party elections. WE'RE SO READY FOR THIS TO BE OVER!! But, then, what would we talk about?
