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!

This week on BTL…breaking news! The Mueller report is real and it’s out and humans have read it and those humans have…told us there was no collusion. 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!

And we’ve got the 2020 updates you didn’t hear about because, well, if a tree falls… P.S. Puerto Rico is still a place that exists to everybody that isn’t Donald Trump. It’s a place that needs our help. All this plus tons more on this weeks BTL!

BTL #305 - Show Up Anyway - 1/21/19

This week on the podcast, the first rule of marching is you show up to the march even when the march is annoying you. Plus, Buzzfeed publishes second widely disputed bombshell that we’ll find out is completely credible in two years and Trump offers a “deal” to end shutdown that is just a worse version of a deal he’s already reneged on once. Then, a look at all 400 people who announced their presidential candidacies last week and plenty more!

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!
