    1. Brooklyn Debate blockbuster moments include Hillary Clinton coming out in favor of supporting what could be a $15/hour minimum wage if and only if we play our cards right

    BTL #196 - FIVE-SWIPE AND TOKEN-MAN V. THAT TURNSTYLE LIFE - 4/11/16

    In Which We Discuss:

    1. Sanders’ secret Wisconsin weapon…there are literally no young Republicans left. 

    2. The Daily News joins the ranks of the millions of Americans who aren’t quite sure what the difference between the Fed and the Treasury is

    3. Five-swipe Hillary takes on token-man Sanders in the most important showdown of the New York primary season

    4. Panama Papers are further proof that rich and powerful people are literally psychopaths.  (Even in Iceland.)

    5. This week in things that are cute: Ted Cruz thinks he can go to the Bronx and lecture New Yorkers on their sinful #NewYorkValues

    6. We agree with Trump on one thing.  “Tour de Trump” is a much better name for a shitty bike ride than “Tour de Jersey.”

    BTL #195 - THE BATHROOM LINE - 4/4/16

    In Which We Discuss:


    1. Trump covers five abortion stances in a matter of hours.  Who even knew there were five different stances that are all 100% wrong?

    2. The only thing we currently know about the outcome of the GOP race, is that none of these three goons are going to vote for each other.

    3. Clinton is SO TIRED of Sanders telling the truth about her record that she refuses to debate him until he stops

    4. After seeing how well it went for Indiana, other states look to get in on the anti-LGBT law passing game.

    5. Bet you didn’t know there’s an entire list of 2016 GOP candidates who will make Trump or Cruz look like totally rational choices

    6. The return of Sinkhole Radio: Sinkholes are eating fish now.  Stop doing that!!
