It's the week after Julie & Brandy interviewed an icon, and it shows. They do their best to chop up the sentencing of Trump's former campaign manager, Paul Manifort, before diving into Elizabeth Warren and her pledge to take on the tech monopoly in America. Then Julie honors National Women's Day with a clip featuring Cher & Nancy Pelosi. This e ...…
 
He was brash. Politically incorrect. An “outsider” political candidate who rose to the White House, out of nowhere, with a reputation as a “counter-puncher.” But Vice President Spiro Agnew was also something else… an active criminal whose secrets were about to be exposed. What happens when a “counter-puncher” in the White House suddenly sees hi ...…
 
This is the first (and only?) installment of the Dumb Gay Politics; Icon Series. Some guests are just so iconic that they require a whole episode dedicated to them, and Bill Browder is one such guest. He's been called Putin's #1 enemy and his name is synonymous with Russian sanctions. In 2012, Bill Browder created and helped to pass the ubiquit ...…
 
It's the week after the Austin live show, and the week before the long-awaited Mueller report finally drops. Sitting smack dab in the middle of a whole lot of non-news, Julie & Brandy do their best to squeeze water from a stone. They speculate on the upcoming Mueller report, they speculate on the Trump/Kim Jong Un meeting, they speculate on Mic ...…
 
Another month, another mediocre live show. But unlike the New Orleans show, this one actually recorded, so up it goes! Instinctively punctual, Julie & Brandy hit Texas just in time for Trump to declare a national emergency on the southern border. After navigating that sh*tstorm, the girls go Off Limits with the legendary Lea Black, and it is ep ...…
 
There is too much overwhelming sh*t going on in the news right now, so Julie & Brandy decided to ignore it all and wait for Beto O'Rourke to announce his run for president in 2020. The announcement never came, but the girls dodged the salacious news bullet (yet again) when they sat down for a kiki with the First Lady of Podcasting, Alison Rosen ...…
 
Another week, another tell-all book about Trump makes the rounds. This time, a former aide recounts his 500 days working inside the Trump White House with a "Team of Vipers." Julie & Brandy are lazy, so they call on the Dumb Gay Politics resident book-reader, Anne Morris, to do the heavy lifting. But it's not all viper-flavored tea. The girls a ...…
 
It's still the first month of Scrunchie19, and Julie & Brandy are already exhausted. Channeling the big d*ck energy of Nance Pelose, the girls muster just enough brain power to break down the new terms of the government shut down. After that, they take a master class in Savagery from the master himself, Dan Savage. It all wraps up with a very r ...…
 
Still hung over from their live show in New Orleans, Julie & Brandy crapped out this episode with little (to no) preparation. They recap their crazy weekend and give an update on the longest government shutdown in history, before sitting down to a stilted conversation with a gay republican. The girls do their best, but the combination of withdr ...…
 
Dreams came true for Julie & Brandy when they got the opportunity to interview comedy legend, Tom Arnold.

After many weeks of deliberation, consternation, and threats of cancelling, Julie & Brandy finally did their live podcast taping in Seattle! They fought through microphone snafus and 12 weeks of sobriety to deliver a reimagined version of the opening song, a poorly prepared sh*tstorm, and a pretty awesome interview with a pretty awesome Washing ...…
 
There wasn't much "real news" this week, so Julie and Brandy did what they do best: celebrated themselves (via cards from their 14 listeners).

After that, they chop up some more fake news and more speculati ...…

It's the Monday after Thanksgiving and Julie & Brandy's gratitude is at an all time high, and that's because: SOMEONE FARTED ON MEET THE PRESS.

It's Thanksgiving, so Julie & Brandy start off the episode by being veeeerrrrry thankful to all the listeners who sent them gift boxes and cards this week. After that, they regurgitate Thanksgiving Scheww from last year's episode. Why? Because no matter how many times they are told the history of Thanksgiving, they still don't remember it. Desp ...…

Julie & Brandy pre-recorded this lazy delight from a cruise ship off the coast of Mexico.

After Julie & Brandy rip Senator Collins (and her home state of Maine) a new a$$hole, they move on to the latest member of Trump's cabinet to b ...…
 
It's all Kavanaugh, all day, on today's episode. Julie & Brandy are deep in their anger feelings, and nothing hits their rage spot quite like Trump's racist nominee for the Supreme Court, alleged gang-rapist, Brett Kavanaugh. The girls recap last week's dramatic congressional hearing, before catching everyone up to speed on the FBI investigatio ...…
 
This week, Julie & Brandy are punchy from their sober feelings, and Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh's alleged gang-bang past isn't helping to calm them down. They rage in defense of all the drunk young girls who have ever been taken advantage of by privileged, horny, white boys, before turning their attention to the tragedy of Cynthia Ni ...…
 
It was a slow week in politics, so (per usz) Julie & Brandy phoned this one in.

After that, the girls talk about Hurricane Florence & the News Machine, and then Judge Julie makes ...…
 
There's a lot of anonymous, gay drama coming out of the White House this week, and Julie and Brandy are here to break it all down.

All that, plus the douchebag that's about to end up on the Supreme Court and it ...…
 
Pretending to celebrate Labor Day with absolutely zero enthusiasm, Julie & Brandy slog their way through this week's podcast.

The girls ...…
 
Julie and Brandy are still floating on a giant, gay boat in the middle of the Mediterranean sea, but the podcast must go on!

The episode is lo ...…
 
Julie and Brandy are on a Roman Holiday, but they still managed to sh*t out this episode with a little help from their good friend, Anne Morris. Anne read Omarosa Manigault Newman's new book, 'Unhinged' in 2 days, and she spills all the rancid tea for the 14 listeners. Bookending that, the girls squeeze in a sh*tstorm about America's #1 race-ba ...…
 
A day late and a dollar short, be prepared to be very underwhelmed by this episode. Julie & Brandy have been on a cleanse and off alcohol for 2 weeks, but that doesn't mean they have their sh*t together. They considered not even bothering with this week at all, but crazy-ass Omorosa Manigault Newman saved the day with her secret White House tap ...…
 
It's the one year anniversary of the DGP Patreon podcast and Julie & Brandy are making everyone suffer! First, they treat you to a looooooooong list of shout outs and gifts, and then later, they read a long ass email from a Patreon Fran.

Emotions (and alcohol) have been running high, so Julie & Brandy took a "personal day" before sh*tting out this episode.

And oh yeah, former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer wrote a book tha ...…
 
Julie & Brandy take the Pacific Northwest by storm, after traveling 850 miles to record the podcast live in Portland.

They start the show by breaking down ...…
 
Despite a record-breaking heatwave in Los Angeles, which caused a 48 hour power-outage in the drug-den/podcast studio, Julie & Brandy strapped it on & sucked it up to deliver this episode for their 14 listeners.

After 16 months of talking about the infamous Trump/Russia Dossier, Julie and Brandy scoop the one and only interview with the lead attorney on the case, Roy Black. But, don't hold your breath on a Peabody Nomination just yet. What starts as the height of journalistic achievement, quickly devolves into standard, Dumb Gay Politics fare: crass, i ...…
 
The immigration sh*tstorm is dominating the news, so Julie & Brandy had to dig deep to find other crap to fill the show. Luckily for them, Mike Huckabee is a huge douche. He's been douching around all over Twitter this week and the girls cover it all with gusto. After that, Melania stops by to explain why she wore that infamous jacket, and the ...…

Since Julie is out of town dancing for dollas (again), this episode was recorded a week early.

Julie and. Brandy start off the show by celebrating the gift that keeps on lying: Rudy Giuliani. The party continues as they dissect the highlights of Trump's speech at the NRA convention.
