This week on BTL...it's updates from #ResistanceRecess! People got active, got creative, and got angry in all the best possible ways. Plus, the DNC chair race results, why Donald Trump should be careful about pushing the paper of record too far, and updates on all the new and exciting (and terrible) laws and policies that will make life for even legal immigrants a living hell. Come for the terrible news, stay for the many many many creative ways constituents are coming up with to get their reps' attention. Oh, and join us for our own little action as well!
This week on BTL, it's Red Scare Pt. II: the one where we actually lose the Cold War! Welcome to life in the modern USSR. sS far it's mostly viewings of The Apprentice and the promise of starvation wages but Trump is brewing up some additional cabinet trouble so stay tuned. Of course no viewing of The Apprentice is as bad as listening to Ted Cruz describe his love of queso. Plus, DNC updates, adventures in deal-making, and more! Listen if you dare! (But seriously, please listen. Listening is fun!)
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!
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!
This week on BTL, the candidates invade New York to make subway-related gaffes, eat pizza incorrectly, and in the case of known delight Ted Cruz, lecture New Yorkers about how terrible they are. Luckily the feeling was mutual and after protests, walk-outs, and lots of general purpose heckling, it's now looking like he wont be taking the Bronx. What a surprise! Plus we've got Wisconsin and Wyoming election results, Panama Paper-mania, a Tour de Trump you wont want to miss, plus a rundown of what was and was not said at Sanders' infamous NY Daily News interview! We're back together again on the left coast and enjoying the afterglow of National Siblings Day, which, naturally, as only children we celebrate together. Say hi to Mom for us!
This week on another bi-coastal BTL, Hillary goes full "Shillary" on a Greenpeace activist, causing the world's greatest photo (at left) to be taken. She's super tired of being attacked for her record and is withholding any debating pearls of genius from the state of New York until we all agree to stop talking about it. Things aren't going much better on the right, where all three candidates are now refusing to vote for each other. It's a real race through Wisconsin and onto New York, where we assume Trump will explain which of the five positions he expressed on abortion this week are actually his. Then we're on to a rundown of the GOP's slate of lesser-known presidential candidates, at least one of whom thinks God has cured him of leukemia three times. Enjoy this primary downtime with us as your guides!
This week on BTL, we begin with a yearly tradition: Brent telling Lila the story of Easter only to have Lila forget the story by the time the podcast is posted. Will she ever learn? Tune in to find out. Then we have some new superlative primary days of our own invention: #LooneyTuesday and #SupercalifragilisticexpialidociousSaturday. Plus, we've got the latest on Obama's trip to Cuba, the (too) many terrorist attacks that went down this week week, and a rundown of 13 Democratic presidential candidates you may not be aware of and probably should try not to learn more about!
