Lev, Lieu & Loekle

Lev, Lieu & Loekle

2020-01-2101:12:03

Mercury wasn't in retrograde and the moon wasn't full, but the sh*t really hit the fan this week. First, Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren got in a friend fight at the democratic debate last Tuesday and then the impeachment rhetoric ramped up to an all time high on Wednesday when Rachel Maddow interviewed the man at the center of all the controversy, Lev Parnas. On Friday, Ted Lieu tweeted the clapback heard round the world and Mike Pence wrote an obnoxious op-ed in the Wall Street Journal that drove comedian Brad Loekle to leave him a rage-filled voicemail. Listen at your own risk and make sure you have an ice-cold beverage nearby, because it was one hell of a salty ass week! **************************************************************************************************************************** *** Subscribe to our Patreon Podcast! https://www.patreon.com/dumbgaypolitics **** *** Check out our website! https://www.julieandbrandy.com *****  ***** Dumb Gay Politics with Julie & Brandy **** Julie Goldman **** Brandy Howard **** Julie and Brandy *** The People's Couch *** DGP *** Gay Podcast *** Starburns Audio Learn more about your ad choices.

This week, the Senate is preparing to begin their impeachment hearings, and Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell has stayed true to his brand by impeding truth & justice every step of the way. Julie & Brandy break it all down, before delivering the ultimate coup-de-gras to McConnell: a voicemail left for him at his Kentucky Senate Office by legendary defense attorney, Roy Black. After that, they discuss how the impending war with Iran took a sharp left-turn when Iran shot down a Ukrainian passenger plane "by accident." The news this week is important, but the girls come in hot, in a mood that can only be described as annoying, so this might be an episode worth skipping. **************************************************************************************************************************** *** Subscribe to our Patreon Podcast! https://www.patreon.com/dumbgaypolitics **** *** Check out our website! https://www.julieandbrandy.com *****  ***** Dumb Gay Politics with Julie & Brandy **** Julie Goldman **** Brandy Howard **** Julie and Brandy *** The People's Couch *** DGP *** Gay Podcast *** Starburns Audio Learn more about your ad choices.

New Year, New War

New Year, New War

2020-01-0701:24:27

It's the first week of 2020, and America started the new year off with a bang. Literally. In an impulsive (and seemingly irrational) move, Donald Trump called for the assassination of Iran's TOP general, sparking a conflict that (by all predictions) looks to blossom into a full blown war with the Middle East. Again. While the prospect of war is depressing at best, and absolutely terrifying at worst, Julie & Brandy refuse to let it dampen their MONEY20 enthusiasm. They blast out their mission statement and (hopefully) make major inroads in a clout chasing interview with the CEO of Starburns Audio, Jason Smith. The vibe may be inappropriately celebratory, but the girls don't care, because it's not just the beginning of a new decade, it's also the beginning of the end of Trump's nightmare presidency. **************************************************************************************************************************** *** Subscribe to our Patreon Podcast! https://www.patreon.com/dumbgaypolitics **** *** Check out our website! https://www.julieandbrandy.com *****  ***** Dumb Gay Politics with Julie & Brandy **** Julie Goldman **** Brandy Howard **** Julie and Brandy *** The People's Couch *** DGP *** Gay Podcast *** Starburns Audio Learn more about your ad choices.

Goodbye Scrunchie19

It's the last episode of the year, and while everyone else is (on vacation) delivering top 10 lists and retrospectives, Julie & Brandy are here with the fresh content known as "regular weed." Per usz, the girls spend half the episode thanking their listeners for gifts and begging them to join their Patreon, before finally getting to the important news that Nance Pelose is withholding the articles of impeachment until the Senate gets their sh*t together. After that, they give a (not so) brief history on their love/hate for Senator Lindsey Graham, before leaving him a very special voicemail (care of Michael Avenatti). There's a lot going on, and emotions are high as the decade comes to a close, but if you're looking for a podcast that goes out with a bang- you should probs keep looking. **************************************************************************************************************************** *** Subscribe to our Patreon Podcast! https://www.patreon.com/dumbgaypolitics **** *** Check out our website! https://www.julieandbrandy.com *****  ***** Dumb Gay Politics with Julie & Brandy **** Julie Goldman **** Brandy Howard **** Julie and Brandy *** The People's Couch *** DGP *** Gay Podcast *** Starburns Audio Learn more about your ad choices.

After a lot of drinking & smoking & Christmakkuh merriment, Julie & Brandy finally finished their fourth ever Dumb Gay Politics Democratic Debate Special. Sure to disappoint most of their 14 listeners, the girls pulled the best moments from the candidates that are nearest and dearest to their hearts. In the interest of time, they (TRY to) keep their commentary short and let the clips speak for themselves. And while this episode drops on Christmas Eve, the democratic candidates are like the best gift on Christmas morning. **************************************************************************************************************************** *** Subscribe to our Patreon Podcast! https://www.patreon.com/dumbgaypolitics **** *** Check out our website! https://www.julieandbrandy.com *****  ***** Dumb Gay Politics with Julie & Brandy **** Julie Goldman **** Brandy Howard **** Julie and Brandy *** The People's Couch *** DGP *** Gay Podcast *** Starburns Audio Learn more about your ad choices.

Merry Impeachment!

Merry Impeachment!

2019-12-1901:19:361

This week, half the country (and 2 million more) are celebrating the birth of the Christmas miracle known as Impeachment. Julie and Brandy have been waiting for this day since the very first episode of Dumb Gay Politics, back in December 2016, and now that it’s finally arrived - they are doing the Carlton dance all the way into 2020. They aren’t bothered that the impeachment vote will get overturned by the Senate, because history has been made, and the republicans can go suck a bag of big, fat d*cks. **************************************************************************************************************************** *** Subscribe to our Patreon Podcast! https://www.patreon.com/dumbgaypolitics **** *** Check out our website! https://www.julieandbrandy.com *****  ***** Dumb Gay Politics with Julie & Brandy **** Julie Goldman **** Brandy Howard **** Julie and Brandy *** The People's Couch *** DGP *** Gay Podcast *** Starburns Audio Learn more about your ad choices.

Don't f*ck w/ Nance Pelose!

Don't f*ck w/ Nance Pelose!

2019-12-1001:25:44

Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi had an iconic week and Julie & Brandy are all the way here for it, gurr! First, she made the announcement that she is instructing the House to move forward with the articles of impeachment, and THEN she clap-backed at a disgraced reporter who asked her if she "hated Trump." Joe Biden had a clap-back of his own, and the girls waste no time in celebrating that too. The celebration hits a sour note when they talk about Senator Kamala Harris dropping out of the 2020 Presidential race, but they decide to see the glass as half-full by imagining the moment when she becomes the nation's first female Vice President. Their positive outlook continues in a 'So There's That' starring (none other than) Linda Rondstadt, because if loving Linda Rondstadt is wrong- Julie & Brandy don't want to be right. (And they rarely are anyway). **************************************************************************************************************************** *** Subscribe to our Patreon Podcast! https://www.patreon.com/dumbgaypolitics **** *** Check out our website! https://www.julieandbrandy.com *****  ***** Dumb Gay Politics with Julie & Brandy **** Julie Goldman **** Brandy Howard **** Julie and Brandy *** The People's Couch *** DGP *** Gay Podcast *** Starburns Audio Learn more about your ad choices.

It's been three years since Julie & Brandy did their very first episode of Dumb Gay Politics, and they literally can't believe that they haven't gotten a real job by now.. But, no! The girls are still dumb, still gay and still here talking politics every m*therf*cking Tuesday! And to celebrate their 3 year anniversary, they start by (finally) recapping the impeachment inquiry hearings, before dissecting the tragedy of Joe Biden's new campaign slogan. After that, they spend a Moment with Melania and share a So There's That with NBA legend, Dwayne Wade. It's a party,, but don't listen without some champagne, because this is one hell of a boring celebration. **************************************************************************************************************************** *** Subscribe to our Patreon Podcast! https://www.patreon.com/dumbgaypolitics **** *** Check out our website! https://www.julieandbrandy.com *****  ***** Dumb Gay Politics with Julie & Brandy **** Julie Goldman **** Brandy Howard **** Julie and Brandy *** The People's Couch *** DGP *** Gay Podcast *** Starburns Audio Learn more about your ad choices.

After a lot of Thanksgiving pre-drinking and distractions, Julie & Brandy finally finished their third-ever, Dumb Gay Politics Democratic Debate Special! Sure to disappoint most of their 14 listeners, the girls pulled the "best moments" from the candidates that are nearest and dearest to their hearts. In the interest of time, they tried (and failed) to keep their commentary short and let the clips speak for themselves. And while this debate special might be over-long and redundant, all of the democratic candidates are money AF. **************************************************************************************************************************** *** Subscribe to our Patreon Podcast! https://www.patreon.com/dumbgaypolitics **** *** Check out our website! https://www.julieandbrandy.com *****  ***** Dumb Gay Politics with Julie & Brandy **** Julie Goldman **** Brandy Howard **** Julie and Brandy *** The People's Couch *** DGP *** Gay Podcast *** Starburns Audio Learn more about your ad choices.

It's the week before Thanksgiving and Julie & Brandy have gratitude LF because they got the opportunity to interview Trump-agitator & lawyer extroadinaire, Michael Avenatti. Famously infamous, Avenatti has had one hell of a 2019 and he sits down to tell the girls all about it; From Stormy Daniels to Nike to Joe Biden's aviators - the conversation runs the gamut, and there's never a dull moment. If you're not already a fan, you will be after this interview, and you'll have receipts. Make a list and check it twice, and then tell all your friends that Micheal Avenatti is actually nice. **************************************************************************************************************************** *** Subscribe to our Patreon Podcast! https://www.patreon.com/dumbgaypolitics **** *** Check out our website! https://www.julieandbrandy.com *****  ***** Dumb Gay Politics with Julie & Brandy **** Julie Goldman **** Brandy Howard **** Julie and Brandy *** The People's Couch *** DGP *** Gay Podcast *** Starburns Audio Learn more about your ad choices.

This episode is on time and the audio doesn't suck, but that's really where the pro column ends. The girls are on a cleanse, trying to detox their tox, and the struggle is real. They start off by celebrating some of their supportive and generous Patreon Frans, before moving on to celebrate some democratic wins in some very UN-democratic states. After that, they celebrate the hot mess known as The View, leaving no one on the show with an intact a$$hole- especially (and most importantly) Don Trump Jr. & his current girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle, who were guests this week. The whole thing is clumsy and slightly hard to listen to, but if you like your politics with a side of pissy withdrawals, then you're gonna love this episode! **************************************************************************************************************************** *** Subscribe to our Patreon Podcast! https://www.patreon.com/dumbgaypolitics **** *** Check out our website! https://www.julieandbrandy.com *****  ***** Dumb Gay Politics with Julie & Brandy **** Julie Goldman **** Brandy Howard **** Julie and Brandy *** The People's Couch *** DGP *** Gay Podcast *** Starburns Audio Learn more about your ad choices.

This episode is late, and the audio seriously sucks, but who cares? IT'S THE GUYS FROM THE PEOPLE'S COUCH! Taking a break from the regular format, Julie & Brandy sit down with Emerson, Scott & Blake for the entire DGP hour. They talk about everything from Sister Act 2 to campaign finance. These boys are fearless. They have opinions and they aren't afraid to share them. So, grab yourself some noise cancelling headphones, because you're not gonna wanna miss a word. **************************************************************************************************************************** *** Subscribe to our Patreon Podcast! https://www.patreon.com/dumbgaypolitics **** *** Check out our website! https://www.julieandbrandy.com *****  ***** Dumb Gay Politics with Julie & Brandy **** Julie Goldman **** Brandy Howard **** Julie and Brandy *** The People's Couch *** DGP *** Gay Podcast *** Starburns Audio Learn more about your ad choices.

Dark Money with Dr. Goldman

Dark Money with Dr. Goldman

2019-10-2901:30:442

Julie & Brandy have the post-debate blues, so they enlist the help of Julie's dad, Dr. Leon Goldman to help them get out of their funk, by taking them to Dark Money Scheww. For the lesson plan, Dr. Goldman read "Dark Money: The Hidden History of the Billionaires Behind the Rise of the Radical Right," by Jane Meyer, and, turns out sweetie- the SH*T is disturbing. The girls couldn't have asked for a better teacher on a subject that no American (or Brit for that matter) should be ignoring. All that, plus Trump killed the leader of Isis, and a hunter got revenge-gutted by the deer he tried to murder. Listen at your own risk (and preferably with a cocktail nearby) because it's not just the money that's dark in this episode. **************************************************************************************************************************** *** Subscribe to our Patreon Podcast! https://www.patreon.com/dumbgaypolitics **** *** Check out our website! https://www.julieandbrandy.com *****  ***** Dumb Gay Politics with Julie & Brandy **** Julie Goldman **** Brandy Howard **** Julie and Brandy *** The People's Couch *** DGP *** Gay Podcast *** Starburns Audio Learn more about your ad choices.

Dumb Gay Politics on CNN!

Dumb Gay Politics on CNN!

2019-10-1501:27:531

CNN made history this week when they joined forces with HRC to present the first ever LGBTQ Town Hall, (live!) with all of the 2020 democratic presidential candidates. Taking it one step further, Julie & Brandy also made history when they conned their way into being a part of it.  Julie asked California Senator Kamala Harris a question about homeless LGBTQ youth, and then Brandy did her best to lurk-creep on Blossom Brown & Beto O'Rourke's viral moment. All in all, the Town Hall was a resounding success, only to be overshadowed by Trump's insane Kanye-rantings at a series of rallies, and the near-arrest of his personal thug, Rudy Ghoulliani. Julie & Brandy do attempt to break it all down for you, while basking in their small (and meaningless?) CNN-fueled glory.  **************************************************************************************************************************** *** Subscribe to our Patreon Podcast! https://www.patreon.com/dumbgaypolitics **** *** Check out our website! https://www.julieandbrandy.com  *****  *****  Dumb Gay Politics with Julie & Brandy  **** Julie Goldman ****  Brandy Howard  **** Julie and Brandy ***  The People's Couch ***  DGP *** Gay Podcast ***  Starburns Audio Learn more about your ad choices.

A second whistleblower has come forward to turn up the heat on the impeachment inquiry into Trump, and Julie & Brandy are here to stoke the flames. Armed with clips of Trump begging China to help him investigate American corruption, and more clips of republicans losing their sh*t trying to defend him, the girls break down why we should all just say f*ck it, and have a stiff drink. After that, Judge Julie stops by to ban the use of the term "founding fathers" from all current & future political discourse, before, a very rough 'So There's That' featuring Robert De Niro dropping F-bombs on CNN, finishes out an episode which might have been better left in the dustbin of history.  **************************************************************************************************************************** *** Subscribe to our Patreon Podcast! https://www.patreon.com/dumbgaypolitics **** *** Check out our website! https://www.julieandbrandy.com  *****  *****  Dumb Gay Politics with Julie & Brandy  **** Julie Goldman ****  Brandy Howard  **** Julie and Brandy ***  The People's Couch ***  DGP *** Gay Podcast ***  Starburns Audio Learn more about your ad choices.

After years of sitting on the pot, Speaker of the House Nance Pelose FINALLY took a big ole' dump on Trump, when she announced, last Tuesday, that the House is launching an official impeachment inquiry into Trump's phone call with the President of Ukraine.  Cut to: Republicans are ridiculously righteous, democrats are resentfully defensive, and the combative atmosphere makes  Julie & Brandy downright annoying. They attempt to fight through their pointless anger to break down  the impeachment inquiry, before getting enraged again at some tragic Facebook news.  This episode might contain some enlightening information, but it's best served with the volume low, and  a heaping side of drugs..  **************************************************************************************************************************** *** Subscribe to our Patreon Podcast! https://www.patreon.com/dumbgaypolitics **** *** Check out our website! https://www.julieandbrandy.com  *****  *****  Dumb Gay Politics with Julie & Brandy  **** Julie Goldman ****  Brandy Howard  **** Julie and Brandy ***  The People's Couch ***  DGP *** Gay Podcast ***  Starburns Audio Learn more about your ad choices.

WhistleBlowing in the Wind

WhistleBlowing in the Wind

2019-09-2401:11:35

In a move that was shocking to no one, Trump enlisted the help of a foreign government to help him in the 2020 election, and someone at the CIA blew the whistle. Will this be the thing to finally get him impeached? Not likely, but Julie & Brandy break it down anyway. After that, it's all about how Saudi Arabia got bombed by drones and why (they think) Trump is blaming Iran. Then, Julie's (heterosexual) dad stops by to share his gay feelings about immigration, before a Brandy-powered So There's That. Delivered late & done half-ass, this episode is a lot like whistling into the wind... pointless. **************************************************************************************************************************** *** Subscribe to our Patreon Podcast! https://www.patreon.com/dumbgaypolitics **** *** Check out our website! https://www.julieandbrandy.com  *****  *****  Dumb Gay Politics with Julie & Brandy  **** Julie Goldman ****  Brandy Howard  **** Julie and Brandy ***  The People's Couch ***  DGP *** Gay Podcast ***  Starburns Audio Learn more about your ad choices.

The Preacher & The Pool Boy

The Preacher & The Pool Boy

2019-09-1001:11:421

Evangelical leader and anti-gay activist, Jerry Falwell Jr. has been exposed as a corrupt hypocrite and a fraud, and Julie & Brandy are here to break it down. He used the non-profit status of his university to create a real estate empire, he used Trump's personal lawyer to bury a sex scandal involving him and his wife and the pool boy, and then he used his power & influence over the moral majority to get Trump elected, The whole thing stinks on ice, and the girls are enraged. Fueled by alcohol withdrawals and pms, they transfer their redundant rage from Christian criminals to corporate ones in yet another anti-Amazon segment.  This episode is like a lettuce-wrapped burger: parts of it are good, but it's just too messy to enjoy.  **************************************************************************************************************************** *** Subscribe to our Patreon Podcast! https://www.patreon.com/dumbgaypolitics **** *** Check out our website! https://www.julieandbrandy.com  *****  *****  Dumb Gay Politics with Julie & Brandy  **** Julie Goldman ****  Brandy Howard  **** Julie and Brandy ***  The People's Couch ***  DGP *** Gay Podcast ***  Starburns Audio Learn more about your ad choices.

Pretty sure I'm one of the ACTUAL first 14 (pat's self on shoulder). I've loved these goofy bitches since they were regulars on Jonny's podcast, and I'm in love with this stupid (and informed) bullshit. I've been truly impressed how many great guests they've had on, and look forward to my daily dose of regular-weed each week (and my two special-weed Patreon dabs). I'll eventually get around to sending a pic of my husband and I for the drug-den, but I just want you to know I love my "don't need your notes" tee, and look forward to eventually getting to see a live-podcast in person (we moved up to WA last year A WEEK after the last one in Seattle, so please come back).

The name Jesus is Latinized form of his name Jesua (Yeshua). A man by that name was briefly mentioned by the Roman historian Josephus, who mentioned the man's notoriety and eventual crucifixion.
