    BTL #304 - PEACHES THE FRIENDLY WALL - 1/14/19

    In Which We Discuss:

    1. Anybody you’ve ever heard of (and some that you haven’t) is running for president.

    2. Shutdown update, day 6000: No news. Shutdown continues. Send park janitors...or something.

    3. GOP finally draws soft line in the sand with Steve King, so they do eventually semi-censure white nationalism. Just takes 16 years to get their story straight.

    4. Trump is a foreign agent. Deal with it.

    5. If anybody’s selling Iran-bombing excuses or plans, John Bolton is in the market.

    6. You could be picketing right now.

    7. We’re calling Trump’s wall Peaches from now on so now it’s friendly.

    #303 - DOUBLE DOUBLE TOIL AND TROUBLE - 12/3/18

    In Which We Discuss:

    2. Michael Cohen can’t stop telling the truth when he thinks it’ll help him avoid jail time.

    3. Paul Manafort is, not surprisingly, not just a double agent for Ukraine but also for Trump.

    4. Trump is making vague trade deals in an effort to promote ending trade deals.

    5. Those tariffs must really be working because GM announced it’s closing plants firing thousands of workers.

    6. Alaska is more terrifying than usual during an earthquake.
