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.

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 ...…
 
Joseph Maguire, the acting U.S. Intelligence Director, testified before the House Intelligence Committee about a whistle-blower complaint about President Trump’s dealings with Ukraine. He defended the whistle-blowers actions as well as his own handling of the case. Maguire was questioned by committee Chair Adam Schiff (D-California), Ranking Me ...…
 
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 ...…
 
After a lot of laughing, crying, and technical snafus, Julie & Brandy finally finished the first 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 keep their commentary ...…
 
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 ...…
 
It's the day after Labor Day and Julie & Brandy are hungover AF, but nothing cures the 'back to school blues' like jamming out to the sweet sounds of Tiffany Trump & Countess Luanne de Lesseps (and yes, they are strangely connected). What would normally be the pinnacle of any episode, is topped by a visit from Dumb Gay Politics legend, Anthony ...…
 
It's the last week of summer, and Julie & Brandy are partying like they don't need rehab. There's no news, and anything significant is happening because Trump is insane. From hawking his golf resort at the G7 Summit, to threatening to buy Greenland, the president is on a one-way train to crazy town. Last week, he told the Prime Minister of Isra ...…
 
This week, Julie & Brandy focus on the lean, green side of things in an hour-long rant, that is both (simultaneously) outrageous and outraging. That's because there is one issue affecting every other issue, and it (finally) cannot be ignored; THE ECONOMY. Maintaining self-control while talking about something as personal and infuriating as the ...…
 
This week, Julie & Brandy tackle the gun control debate in the only way they know how: dumb and gay. Even though there have been more mass shootings than DAYS in 2019, there's good news on the horizon, but you have to listen to the podcast if you want the burn of the scalding hot tea. After yelling their way through the gun lobby sh*tstorm, the ...…
 
The opening song of Dumb Gay Politics has never been more prophetic than it has this week. 'America has gotten kinda wack' with mass shootings every other day, and the immovable gridlock of the gun control debate. The only thing Julie & Brandy can do is turn their focus to who is going to replace Trump in 2020, and that means chopping up last w ...…
 
Special Council Robert Mueller finally testified before Congress, and Julie & Brandy were not impressed. Nonetheless, they work through their sober/diet rage in order to rehash the details and the aftermath of his testimony, including possible impeachment proceedings and future Russian election meddling.

The girls ...…
 
This summary was supposed to describe the amazing live podcast that Julie & Brandy did in Wisconsin on Friday, but the audio file was unusable.

The Trump/Iran drama continues on for the 6th (?) week in a row, and Julie & Brandy are annoyed. All they want to do is get high and talk about the upcoming debates, but they can't because Trump is warmongering with Iran as part of his 2020 campaign strategy, so he stopped by Meet the Press to try on a special edition, Chuck Todd merkin. After ...…
 
This week marks the 4 year anniversary of Trump's infamous escalator ride announcing his run for President, and the country has been in a living hell ever since.

With DC in their rearview, Julie & Brandy are back in LA, and back to doing the podcast in the solitude of their drug den.

After that's finally over, Julie takes Brandy to Presidential Nomination Scheww, where she an ...…
 
Doing Dumb Gay Politics LIVE! in the nation's capital was a milestone for Julie & Brandy, and as such, the girls made the monumental decision to stay sober during the show. They spend a few minutes dissecting Robert Muellers' underwhelming 10 minute press conference, before introducing their special guest for the evening, Democratic warrior & T ...…
 
It's Memorial Day, and Julie & Brandy are filled with rage from doing the 7 day- GM Diet. Their hatred for Facebook and general disdain for Social Media permeates the episode, starting with the Trump/Nance Pelose infrastructure standoff. Then, it's the bullshit of Brexit which led to the Prime Minister of England finally resigning, before finis ...…
 
Jet-lag on fleek, Julie & Brandy can barely get it together to discuss Trump's twitter feud with Iran. Luckily, their sisty/bestie Jonny McGovern stops by the drug den to answer some gay questions, and that raises the bar substantially. He weighs in on the 2020 candidates, abortion, and the issues that matter most to him. Julie follows it up wi ...…
 
Julie and Brandy are back from Asia, just in time to throw their suitcases down and record another podcast! Still bloated from too much Japanese whiskey and soy sauce, the girls do their best to cobble together a cohesive explanation for the current trade war with China, the North Korean missile tests, and Trump foreshadowing a war with Iran! I ...…
 
After spending an unplanned month in Asia, Julie & Brandy are finally on their way home... But, first? A 17 hour layover at the Beijing airport! So, the girls decide to rent an hourly "hotel" room in an airport lounge, so they can "relax" and also, do this podcast. China's internet is what one would expect from a communist-type of country, and ...…
 
Due to unexpected, unforeseen,and unacceptable travel complications: Julie & Brandy are stranded in Tokyo for the next 9 days. Deciding to make the best of it, the girls celebrate American icon, Joe Biden, finally tossing his hat in the 2020 presidential race AND then they celebrate Japanese icon, Emperor Akihito, abdicating the throne to his s ...…
 
Julie & Brandy are still on a gay cruise through Asia. And they are still not sober. Drunk on soup dumplings and Jack Daniels, they do their best to contain their rage over the sh*tstorm of the redacted Mueller Report. After that, they enlist the help of the hilarious (and sober) Brad Loekle, to help them kill 45 minutes of podcast time by goin ...…
 
Julie & Brandy kick off their epic Asia trip with... WORK! There's nothing like landing in a foreign country, excited to explore, only to realize that the podcast is due and there's work to be done. Staying true to their brand, the girls wait until the last minute, wake up hung over, and then plagiarize most of the podcast from CNN and Rachel M ...…
 
Attorney General Bill Barr is still bogarting the Mueller report, but Julie & Brandy do their best to make a meal out of it. They recap Barr's most recent public statement, before breaking down Trump's alleged ties to the Russian mafia, aka the Russian government. After slogging thru three decades of Trump's history with Russian gangsters, they ...…
 
Nursing their hangovers from MuelleritaVille, and still waiting for the Mueller report to be released, Julie & Brandy had nothing to do but kill time (with everyone else), when they stumbled upon all the information they never wanted to know about Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell. Dismantling democracy for over a decade, his political ca ...…
 
There couldn't be a better follow-up to the TRUMPGATE episode, than the Mueller Report finally dropping. Except the only person who has been allowed to read Special Council Robert Mueller's final report is the US Attorney General, Bill Barr. He sped-read it in two days, and wrote a 4 page summary that basically says there was no collusion betwe ...…
 
Julie is on a gay cruise through the gulf of Mexico, so that means- it's time for another Dumb Gay Politics evergreen episode!! The Mueller report investigating Trump is about to drop, so the girls decide to breakdown the biggest political scandal in American history: TRUMPGATE. Trumpgate can be divided into 6 specific scandals, which taken on ...…
 
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 ...…
