BTL #311 - What, If Anything, Is Obstruction - 3/25/19

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!

BTL #304 - Peaches The Friendly Wall - 1/14/19

This week on the podcast, we begin 2020 mania! Announcements, speculation, and warnings abound. Plus, the government is shut down over a wall named Peaches and Donald Trump couldn’t have less of a clue about it. All this and tons more from over the break on our first BTL of 2019!

BTL #293 - Balloon Baby [w/ guest host Grant Sloss] - 7/16/18

This week on BTL, Grant Sloss, our first ever guest host, returns to the studio as this week’s special guest co-host! We talk the SCOTUS Bachelorette, Trump’s horrible behavior at the NATO meeting, the UK’s superior sense of insult-crafting, and so much more! In the midst of the world ending, some good news even sneaks it’s way in. Tune in to find out what happened and why a family of Wisconsin woodchucks are this week’s American heroes!

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?

BTL #273 - Lizard Blizzard - 1/10/18

BTL #273 - Lizard Blizzard - 1/10/18

This week on BTL...we're back after a long winter break, during which we had time to relax, then speed-read Fire and Fury and obsess over every last detail. We bring all that directly to your ears! Plus, 2012 is back! Bachmann, Romney, Kucinich (okay, wrong year) oh my! All that plus destructive men and their destructive buttons, Lizard Blizzards, and more!

BTL #271 - Rains of Fire - 12/11/17

BTL #271 - Rains of Fire - 12/11/17

This week on BTL, sexual assault resignations continue, and yet the Orange Furher is still the president! Plus, Puerto Rico's Maria death count is nowhere near what the official count says, America's policy on Israel is being dictated by nothing related to what the official history of the region says, the firebunny video's truth isn't quite what one man says, and Donald Trump watches significantly more television than he himself says. Everybody is doing this saying thing wrong. Good grief.

BTL #264 - Agent Orange [w/ Esteban Gast]

BTL #264 - Agent Orange [w/ Esteban Gast]

This week on the podcast, the hilarious and charming Esteban Gast joins us in the studio to talk Puerto Rico, Trumpcare, Iran, and the giant clusterfuck nonsense blob that is Harvey Weinstein.  Plus we've got dispatches from the Value Voters Summit/ie a real life hate group, thoughts on the upcoming California senate primary, more natural disasters, and so much more.
