    BTL #159 - NORTH KOREAN DERRING-DO - 6/23/15

    In Which We Discuss:


    1. Like the president and Jon Stewart, we’re sick and tired of thinking of something new to say about white domestic terrorists and their totally legal super-deadly arsenals.

    2. Proving they’re only 250 years behind the times, South Carolina may finally take down their state confederate flag.  It’s time to admit the dream is dead, guys.

    3. Speaking of dreams, 2016 is going to be the year we finally get to officially not vote for Donald Trump.

    4. Math and science finally prove that once you know Bernie Sanders, you have no choice but to love him. 

    5. The GOP’s Catholic hopefuls now must explain why their faith is guiding them to deny science even the Pope knows is true.

    6. Women continue to get 77% of what they ask for in their battle to be on the $20

    7. North Korea cures everything using a top secret combination minerals and derring-do.

    BTL #157 - SNAKES AND SINKHOLES - 6/9/15

    In Which We Discuss:


    1. Sadly, Hastert’s attempt to rid the nation of corrupt legislators in the Clinton years was always destined to be incomplete.  Turns out he was one of them.

    2. Not even a clown car can contain the current GOP field.  And evidently the Democratic party can’t contain their candidates since none of them are actually members.

    3. Will the Biden’s ever catch a break?  For God’s sake!

    4. Jobs.  We have more of them than we used to.

    5. Patriot Act.  We have less of it than we used to.

    6. Duggars go on television to further explain their terrible choices, further embarrass their daughters 

    7. A rare supercombo of Snakes AND Sinkholes strike this week’s news!

    8. Huckabee.  This guy.

    1.  An important review of Bernie Sanders’ long-forgotten folk career

    2.  Baltimore finally has a folk hero and, more importantly, an indictment

    3.  Ben Carson hopes to add a sequel to his hit TV biopic. Cuba Gooding-Jr is probably still available.

    4. New Bridegate developments strike at the very moment Chris Christie would have liked to have been announcing

    5. Rick Santorum cannot tolerate your gay marriage due to the fact that it caused 9/11 but is totally cool if Bruce Jenner feels he’s a woman.  Who is he to judge?

    6. Biggest boxing match in history pits domestic violence aficionado against world’s least effective politician

    2. Greece isn’t afraid to tell Germany what they really think about modern-day loans and you know, World War II

    3. The house can’t remember why they’re trying to repeal Obamacare for the 56th time, but they CAN remember why Texas is awesome, and that almost makes the same point, right?

    4. Political heavyweights like the 90s era governor of New York and the former governor of Virginia toss their hats into the 2016 ring.  Book deals for everybody!

    5. Ben Carson, the only tea-party approved pediatric neurosurgeon, makes the accidental error of showing a basic understanding of science

    6. Rep./Male Model Aaron Schock needs you to know that he is not a “Downton Abbey” fan despite his office’s peacock feather decor

    1. Sunday’s American Anti-Wife Beating Commercial Day ended, tellingly, with a brawl 

    2. Reminder: Jeb Bush is the bullying, pothead Bush child that didn’t even make it to Yale, and we know it wasn’t because of the cost

    3. Hillary Clinton will enjoy several more months of running for president without actually running 

    4. Romney may be gone but his legacy is not forgotten as a new generation of GOP hopefuls face the awesome challenges of public chair-sitting

    5. We’ll name every traitorous Democrat that voted for Keystone this week and put them in our anti-prayers

    6. D’Angelo is a person we can appreciate without listening to

    7. Science has finally proven what this podcast proves every week: that liberals are biologically superior

    In Which We Discuss:

    1. Snappy State of the Union is followed by bread-bags and wig-hair in world’s most dramatic drop-off. 


    2. Greatest event in the history of the world descends upon Iowa, showering the state in racist quips, Hillary hatred, and groundbreaking (well...incorrect) word use. 

    3. Future car-elevator companions Jeb Bush and Mitt Romney share a gentlemanly lunch, studiously avoid topics of any sort.

    4. New York is having two very New York problems this week: ethics scandals and fare increases.  We’re most upset about the latter.

    5. Does anybody know ISIS’s phone number?  Japan is trying to call them.

    6. When Glenn Beck pays for a concert, Glenn Beck expects Billy Joel to bring his freaking A-game!

    BTL #138 - CREDIBLE CONTENDERS - 1/20/15

    In Which We Discuss:

    1. The SOTU is Tuesday, and you should watch just to see two things: clapping theatrics and Biden’s facial expressions as he descends into boredom


    2. Upon hearing that income inequality is a thing, car elevator-owner Mitt Romney tries to care a little but fails to convince even his own party of his change-of-heart

    3. California Democrats conjure more credible contenders for 2016 senate race in two days than either political party has for president in two years

    4. Much of country and world fails to recognize the irony of tweeting anti-Muslim and other racist things on MLK day

    5. Surprising news: Hollywood cabal populated by ancient rich white men has no respect for civil rights stories or the historically downtrodden Lego people

    6. GOP Congressmen and Senators take a group trip to Hershey, PA, enjoy chocolate syrup salad dressing and chocolate soap with the rest of the children

    BTL #132 - SHUTDOWN, THE REMIX - 11/17/14

    In Which We Discuss:

    1. Obama enters a “gives no fucks” zone and promises executive action on #Immigration, his support for #NetNeutrality, and a major climate deal with #China.  Let the lame duck games begin!


    2. The GOP’s only strategy is the one thing they strategized to not do again.  All hail #shutdown2015, the remix.

    3. Centrists and Liberals are about to throw down Tea Party style as Democrats reckon with how to not get shitstomped in future elections.

    4. Still don’t have healthcare?  What are you thinking?!  (Also, open enrollment is in session!  You could totally fix this!)

    5. ISIS still in the business of producing exceptionally long, disgusting videos.  We’re starting to doubt their much-touted social media savvy.  16 minutes is too long, guys!

    6. Well we landed on a comet.  (Yay?)  But besides causing a real #shirtstorm, we might not have accomplished much.  Turns out that sunlight is a really important ingredient in launching a successful solar energy space probe.

    BTL #130 - THE SOAP OPERA EPIDEMIC - 11/3/14

    In Which We Discuss:


    1. We’re going to lose the Senate, guys.  Sorry we’ve been lying to you.  Cali sun and whatnot...


    2. Colorado sneaks a personhood amendment onto the ballot by convincing voters it will save their unborn babies from drunk drivers.  Screw you, Colorado!


    3. Do not mess with Kaci Hicox.  She WILL take a one-hour rural bike ride if she damn well pleases.


    4. North Korea is on the frontlines of the war against Japenese Ebola and South Korean Soap Operas, both epidemics invented by North Korea.
