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!

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 #294 - Brent's Back - 8/6/18

BTL #294 - Brent's Back - 8/6/18

This week on BTL, Brent makes his triumphant return. (Remember him?!) We give the play-by-play of who’s claiming they know the play-by-play of Don Jr.’s meeting with Russian officials, discuss the Kirstjen Nielsen “triumphant” trip to Puerto Rico to thank everybody for definitely not bungling the recovery efforts, and go deep into the Netroots-fueled 2020 speculation-mania! Plus there are primaries Tuesday, and don’t worry, John Kelly’s given up completely so his facial expressions will be around for years to come.

Join us there for a few minutes, then call your reps because shit has gotten VERY real.
