    BTL #319 - Who is John Delaney? - 7/1/19

    In Which We Discuss:

    1. Lila was in the thick of the biggest news of two weeks ago

    2. #DemDebate Real Talk: 

    3. Partisan gerrymandering is no big deal if you have a lifetime appointment

    4. SCOTUS is super confusing these days, but ultimately still as horrible as you’d expect

    5. We’ve been gone a month, so here are all the times we almost went to war

    6. Trump is celebrating the 4th of July by scheduling counterprogramming to PBS’s celebration because what better way to celebrate America than by getting better ratings than Carole King?

    BTL #318 - MATH IS VINDICATED - 6/3/19

    In Which We Discuss:

    1. Robert Mueller holds emergency press conference to remind us that unlike Barr, he has, in fact, read his own report.

    2. It remains to be seen whether magic will be enough to get Marianne Williamson, or even Kirsten Gillibrand, into the third Democratic debate.

    3. The word “Mueller” is in the news so Trump’s got a genius plan to create a diversion by tanking the entire economy of both the US and Mexico.

    4. Math is vindicated once again after study shows that the Trump tax cuts...SHOCK...didn’t work.

    5. It’s [name any day] in America so obviously there was another mass shooting.

    In Which We Discuss:

    1. We went to Politicon, and we can now officially tell you who is running for president.

    2. Voter suppression: It’s not just in Georgia anymore!

    3. Mitch McConnell loyally follows script that Democrats wrote for him

    4. Fun with midterm polls!

    5. We never thought we’d say this, but Donald Trump doesn’t care enough about your genitalia.

    6. Trump nicknames continue to get less clever and more off-topic, just like his administration.

    Guys, it's our 300th episode!!!

    BTL #298 - CAPACITY FOR EVIL - 10/10/18

     

    In Which We Discuss:

    1. Puerto Rico apparently held the key to the ongoing GOP dry mouth epidemic, but nobody from their party was there to look for it

    2. Nikki Haley is now free to use as many private jets and basketball tickets as her little heart desires

    3. Susan Collins proves that unassuming old slow-talkers have the same capacity for evil as the rest of us

    4. California isn’t the only state that can force you to vote on too many props

    5. Finally time to dig into our favorite thing: Suspicious election polling in random states

    6. The one thing we can still do is unify around rural white people
