3/7/22 - Don’t Say BBB [w/ Dakota Hall from Alliance for Youth Action]

In Which We Discuss:

1. Dakota Hall, ED at Alliance for Youth Action, joins us to talk about young voters, the SOTU, and more!

2. Joe Biden misread the mood of the American people as he jovially celebrated returning to the office during the SOTU. That’s right, he wants to send you to the place where your bosses are!

3. Cisneros and Cuellar head into a runoff in the Democrat’s bellwetheriest bellwether race.

4. Mask laws are ending, so get your noses ready for spring.

5. President Zelensky spoke for all of earth when he asked Rick Scott to please, finally, for the love of God, mute himself

4/26/21 - Warm Fuzzy Feelings

In Which We Discuss:

3. Andrew Yang loves lesbian bars but apparently not the lesbians who congregate at them.

4. Nancy Pelosi vs. Squad: A battle with no winners

5. Please commit to hating the Caitlyn Jenner candidacy for the right reasons

1. Americans are never more charmed than when a monarchy we fought a long deadly war against experiences joy

5. Teachers in six states now demanding basic dignity. What will they think of next?

BTL #285 - GUARD YOUR SECRETS - 4/23/18

 

In Which We Discuss:

1. Puerto Rico seeks to answer the age old question: if a tree falls in the forest, does an entire country lose electricity?

2. Unsurprisingly, Kim Jong-Un and Mike Pompeo get along famously

3. Michael Cohen will guard your secrets until it no longer serves him

4. Not content to screw over America with just one tax bill, Paul Ryan looks to pass another before going to spend more time with his kids.  Right…

5. Don’t worry Missouri Governor Eric Greitens.  Just because you blackmailed and violently coerced your mistress doesn’t mean you can’t just ask for forgiveness and someday end up in Congress.  Republicans!

6. California voter guide proves that anyone truly can run for office if you just have a dream...and 0-1 insane ideas.
