BTL #296 - Rants - 9/24/18

This week…well...we've been away for a month so it’s mostly rants!  We’ll be ranting Kavanaugh, primaries, hurricanes and everything you need to know before next week, when we go back to our covering one week of news at a time.

BTL #295 - Watergate Pt. II - 8/20/18

BTL #295 - Watergate Pt. II - 8/20/18

This week on BTL, it’s election results galore! We’ll tell you why what you’ve been reading about what they mean isn’t totally true. Also, indictments/legal entanglements/lies galore! But don’t worry, according to Giuliani, the truth is not the truth anyway so what does it matter? It was a big two weeks and we’ve got it all right here!

BTL #291 - 1950s Toddler - 6/18/18

BTL #291 - 1950s Toddler - 6/18/18

This week on BTL, Trump tantrums his way around the G7, dictates his way through the U.S. - North Korea summit, and rips poor desperate immigrant families apart while we obsess about the California primaries! (Whose hobby is better? We’ll let you decide.) We’ve got results from CA and the other June 5th states, as well as some ire about the poor children being torn from their parents in the name of cruelty [cough]…sorry safety (?). All that plus visiting information if you want to get some facetime with Paul Manafort while he’s in jail. We all have a few things we’d like to say to his face, right?

California Primary Election Prop Cheatsheet (June 2018)

California Primary Election Prop Cheatsheet (June 2018)

Jungle primaries are confusing enough. That's why we've put together this handy cheat sheet, along with our reasons for taking the positions we did.  Now you can sound informed at dinner parties AND avoid screwing up on Election Day.  

BTL #204 - Drag Queen Bingo - 6/6/16

BTL #204 - Drag Queen Bingo - 6/6/16

This week on BTL, it's our last podcast before the big day!  Californians will finally (FINALLY) get to weigh in on this year's presidential picks and we can't wait!  Brent, in fact, couldn't wait so much that he drove over an hour on Sunday morning to vote early, meeting up with with unknowing friend-of-the-podcast Marcia Gay Harden in the process.  No word yet on who she voted for, but Brent made some bold decisions and in honor of his sacrifice we've got a good rundown of your California Senate primary choices...all 34 of them. There's plenty more too, including Hillary Clinton's foreign policy speech, Trump's banner week of racism (even for him!), Paul Ryan's panic endorsing, and so much more!  

BTL #202 - Scandal to Pore Ratio - 5/23/16

BTL #202 - Scandal to Pore Ratio - 5/23/16

This week on BTL...GOSSIP!  Nothing like some good old infighting among the Democrats to get us excited about the endless casual insult and loaded compliment possibilities!  Plus we've got primary results from Kentucky and Oregon, an attempt to refute accepted science (Republicans get away with that all the time so why not us?) and detailed reports of the greatest day in Congressional history.  Finally, we're almost as cool as the British!  Oh, and Oklahoma is up to legit shenanigans in their quest to rid the state of doctors and women...or at least that's what we assume their crazy abortion bill is all about.  That and tons more if you click RIGHT HERE!

BTL #200 - We've Made 200 of These!!! - 5/9/16

BTL #200 - We've Made 200 of These!!! - 5/9/16

It's our 200th episode and the news was hilarious just for us!  Catch all the latest on the Cruz and Kasich drop-outs, the loyalty war brewing within the GOP, the most hilariously misguided Trump social media outreach to date, and so much more!  We've got the latest on the Dem delegate dramas, the Veepstakes, and some unsolicited advice for Hillary Clinton!  200 of these suckers!  What a world!

BTL #199 - Hapless Efforts - 5/2/16

BTL #199 - Hapless Efforts - 5/2/16

This week on BTL, a hapless plan meets it's natural end as Ted Cruz and John Kasich realize they don't actually have a desire to work together.  Plus, we're all choosing our VP picks this week, so gather round!  Ted Cruz inexplicably chose Carly Fiorina, Lila choose Brent, and we're just getting started!  All this plus Obama's mic drop, Donald Trump's rambling foreign policy suggestions (win at stuff, make them pay, etc) delivered to a room full of his closest celebrity journalists, and the razzle-dazzle of Prince's end times prophecy!
