This week, Julie is on a homo-tour of the east coast, so the girls recorded this evergreen delight a few days early. Being that old news is no news, they decided that this week's episode was the perfect time to introduce their new segment, "Anne read a book in 2 days." Brandy's friend Anne took the girls to "Fire and Fury Scheww" back January, ...…
 
This week, Julie & Brandy come full circle when they interview their podcast mentor & bestie/sistie Jonny McGovern. They kiki with the Hey Qween host for most of the show, but first they break down the sh*tstorm of Trumps's lawyer Michael Cohen, Ivanka, Don Jr, and "The end stage of the Trump Presidency." Afterward, their heroism is caught on t ...…
 
Julie & Brandy left their hearts (and livers) at Miami Pride, so they are hanging on by a very thin thread . A phantom thread, if you will. First, they break down the atrocities happening in Syria before reveling in the recent FBI raid on Trump's personal attorney, Michael Cohen. After that, they celebrate Sarah F#ckabee Sanders and spend a Mom ...…
 
This week, Julie & Brandy are overwhelmed by the big picture. They barely even have time to discuss the Roseanne reboot, before they have to break down Trump firing the secretary of Veteran's Affairs & replacing him with his personal physician. After that they suffer through tragic stories of Laura Ingraham's homophobic history before going to ...…
 
Fresh off a gay cruise, the girls are hung over and depressed about Trump's new National Security Advisor, John Bolton. But their moods pick up when they get the opportunity to go 'off limits' with the world famous drag queen, Miss Richfield 1981 (aka Russ King). They finish off by celebrating America's thirstiest teenagers and the important wo ...…
 
Julie & Brandy are drunk on a Caribbean Cruise, but the podcast must go on (as they say). This week, the girls break down President Trump firing the Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, and also 900 other people. With the threat of Russia looming, and Vladimir Putin getting closer and closer to dismantling the entire US government, Julie imagines ...…
 
Julie & Brandy sobered up (slightly) for this episode, but turns out, they are more annoying when they aren't drunk. Mimosas take the edge off as they talk about Trump's impending meeting with Kim Jong Un, and the new trade regulations on steel and aluminum. Things pick up when Sarah Huckabee Sanders stops by to break down Trump's latest speech ...…
 
Another week, another drunk podcast, but that doesn't stop Julie & Brandy from talking about all the crazy sh*t that went on in the news this week. Between Jared Kushner's shady loans, Hope Hicks getting the boot, and the new information coming out about the infamous dossier, there's no way the girls could stay sober for this one. It'll be toug ...…
 
Dreams came true for Julie & Brandy when they got the opportunity to interview comedy superstar, Sarah Silverman. Direct from her kitchen table, they pick her brain about all things political, and she doesn't disappoint. Not only did the girls learn a lot about politics, history, and humanity- they learned firsthand why Sarah Silverman is a liv ...…
 
It was a sad, sad week, so Julie & Brandy are nursing an emotional (and an actual) hangover. First they talk about the Florida school shooting and the students who are emerging as the nation's most influential lobbyists. Then, they break down the indictment that charged 13 Russians for meddling in the 2016 election. All that, plus a message abo ...…
 
It's the Valentine's Day episode, and there's nothing Julie & Brandy love more- than talking about how much they hate Bill Cosby. Joining them in their hilarious hate-parade is actress and voice over star, Jen Cohn. But if you think the abuse conversation stops there, think again, because White House wife-beater & staff secretary, Rob Porter re ...…
 
Since they recorded this episode a few days early, Julie & Brandy did not cover Memo-Gate 2018. But don't worry, there was plenty bi-partisan buffoonery at the State of the Union address, and the girls dissect it all. After that, they go deep with Rupaul's Drag Race Queen of Environment Activism, Tammie Brown, and then Judge Julie makes a rare ...…
 
Hold on to your pink hats, because it's a lady-centric episode this week! First, Julie & Brandy take no prisoners breaking down the sentencing of former USA Gymnastics doctor, Larry Nassar. Then, they get the treat of their lives talking to the UK's most controversial (and coolest) feminist, Julie Bindel. After that, they play a message from a ...…
 
They can shut the government down, but they can't shut Julie & Brandy up. The girls give their best effort at breaking down the government shut down, before throwing in the towel and moving the party into the Ladies Room. Over a million women hit the streets to march this past weekend, and if you missed any of the important details- never fear, ...…
 
Another week means another moronic comment out of Trump's sh*thole, and Julie & Brandy are here to break it all down. Between calling Haiti a sh*thole, and the mistaken missile warning in Hawaii, the buffoonery level in this country is at an all-time high. Round it out with paid-off mistresses and a pissed-off Maxine Waters, and you've got one ...…
 
It's the first week of 2018, and Julie & Brandy are fired up and furious. They start out on a major high from Oprah's killer Golden Globes speech, but their high quickly disintegrates with the sh*tstorm of Michael Wolff's new book: "Fire & Fury: Inside the Trump White House." Luckily, their friend Anne read the book so they don't have to. So, t ...…
 
It's the first week of 2018, but this podcast was recorded the last week of 2017. Julie takes Brandy to New Years Eve Scheww before they talk to podcast legend and comedy triple threat Heather McDonald. Between their holiday hangover and an annoying audio issue, this episode is a perfect representation of 2017 - below average.…
 
It's the last episode of the 2017, and Julie and Brandy want to go out with a bang! The only problem is that they are out of town. So, the girls decided to pick three of their favorite "Off-Limits" interviews and compile them all into one, long, celebratory episode. They've done many different interviews this year, and each one holds a special ...…
 
Hannukah is happening now and Christmas is in a week, so the girls are celebrating! They acknowledge and give thanks to all the thoughtful listeners who sent them presents & cards, before doing a deep dive on the history of Christmas and Hannukah! Put on your thinking caps, because Julie takes Brandy to holiday scheww- and there's more to Chris ...…
 
This week, the girls process Al Franken's resignation before Judge Julie drops by to sentence Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke to life without parole in Douche jail. Then a telecom lawyer takes the girls to scheww for a class about net neutrality. Too much coffee and TWO 'So There's Thats' later, the girls are still trying to figure out what the h ...…
 
The news of the week has Julie & Brandy (but mostly Julie) EXTRA hostile. The anger train leaves the station with a negative iTunes review, it rolls through the sh*tstorm of the bougie new tax plan, makes a stop on Perjury Street, and then goes off the rails with the tragic news of Trump reducing one million acres of federally protected land fr ...…
 
It's the one year anniversary of Dumb Gay Politics, and Julie and Brandy are celebrating in style.

The girls are giddy with excitement and can hardly pay attention ...…
 
In this very special episode, the girls put the "myth of Thanksgiving" on blast, spend some family time with Julie's brother Adam, and give their list of the biggest turkey's of 2017. There's never been an episode with so much dumb, gay thankfulness. Get ready for the gratitude parade.
 
Julie and Brandy taped this podcast LIVE at the Hollywood Improv. Their special guest is Lauren Sivan and the title tells you everything you need to know. Despite being live, this podcast is a day late and a dollar short. Listen at your own risk.
 
It's been a year since Trump got elected and it's been a a year since Julie & Brandy started this podcast- and (to no one's surprise) neither Trump, nor DGP have improved. At all. In fact, they've (arguably) both gotten worse. Battling through sobriety, exhaustion and recording snafus, the girls cover the recent federal Indictments, the updates ...…
 
The girls are out of town so they pre-recorded this rage-filled episode. They start with a spooky story about one of America's scariest creepers, Bill O'Reilly. After that, they interview the INSANELY talented Anthony Atamanuik, who's making America Great Again playing Donal Trump on "The President Show" on Comedy Central. This episode is very ...…
 
Julie & Brandy break down the shitstorm in Niger and Trump's follow-up call to one of the widows, before the girls get a much anticipated lesson in Muslimism from the hilarious triple threat, Negin Farsad. Throw in a voicemail from a gay guy, who is actually a straight woman with feelings about abortion and a So There's That about Democratic fu ...…
 
This week Julie and Brandy avoid offending people by NOT talking about Harvey Weinstein and instead choosing to focus on Trump's "decertification" of the Iran deal. They get deep about Rex Tillerson and Senator Bob Corker before riding their tiny bicicleta to skeww to learn about gerrymandering! After that, they treat the 14 listeners to a very ...…
 
Julie and Brandy are skipping down memory lane in this pre-recorded delight. Join them as they travel back in time to episodes as far back as December 2016, when Donald Trump was still just President elect! They reminisce about many golden political memories, including Chuck Schumer crying, Neil Gorsuch landing the coveted spot on the Supreme C ...…
 
Julie & Brandy break down (and by breakdown, we mean: gloss over) the 9 page packet filled with jargon and pathological lies knows as the Tax Reform Framework. If this doesn't get them emotionally unstable enough, they talk to original Puerto Rican and podcaster extraordinaire, MeMe Cherry about the horrific disaster in Puerto Rico. The girls g ...…
 
While most of America is concerned with which football players participated in the national anthem, the girls decide to skip it, instead focusing on our apparent, impending war with North Korea. After that, they visit Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump on Hypocrisy Street, before spending a special (and hypocritical!) moment with Melania! You'll pr ...…
 
Julie and Brandy are back in the country after 2 weeks abroad and are making a huge effort to try and sound coherent. They rehabbed their livers as fast as humanly possible in order to bring you their C game, but thankfully they had the foresight to pre-record an interview with Brad Loekle while they were still happily floating off the coast of ...…
 
What do you get when you take Julie and Brandy and put them in a conference room, on board a cruise ship, sailing around the coast of Spain? A jam-packed casserole of interrupted chatter! The girls have never been more interrupted than in the making of this podcast, but they still managed to discuss Hurricane Harvey, the debt ceiling extension ...…
 
Julie and Brandy recorded this podcast from a hotel room in Amsterdam after a night of extreme partying. The lethal combination of jet lag and hang overs could only be cured with one thing: more drinking. So the girls drunkenly stumble thru North Korea's nuclear testing and spend a very drunk Moment with Melania, but then (thank f*ck) they do a ...…
 
In between shoving their new Patreon podcast down everyone's throats, Julie & Brandy go through some listener gifts and comments, and then discuss Trump's 984th bad decision: Pardoning convicted racist, Sheriff Joe Arpaio. After that, they settle in to talk to Erin Gibson & Bryan Safi, the stars of the late night talk show Throwing Shade on TV ...…
 
The racist press parade continues this week with Trump's "infrastructure" press conference on Tuesday. By Friday, scabby Steve Bannon is tagged as the official white supremacist scapegoat, and subsequently fired. Julie and Brandy celebrate (?) the ousting of Bannon while mourning any semblance of hope they had left. Toss one back with the girls ...…
 
All roads lead to Trump on this week's episode. With no guest to kill time, Julie & Brandy are stuck dissecting every Trump press conference and (spoiler alert!) they were all terrible. There was the crappy, middle of the road, damn-near racist speech about Virginia. There was the nuclear threats to and from North Korea. And don't forget the on ...…
 
Julie & Brandy have finally gotten their official Patreon account up and running! After they finish begging for money at the top of the episode, they roll right into discussing the leaked transcripts from Trump's January phone conversations with the president of Mexico and the prime minister of Australia. After that, Canada's premiere feminism ...…
 
It's been one hell of a week for the Trump administration, and Julie and Brandy are here to break it all down.

Bob explains everything from the skinny girl health care bill to the Trump supporters brainwashed by Fox N ...…
 
It's been 2 weeks of no drinking, and Julie & Brandy have been bored sh*tless, so, the shakeup at the White House Press Office couldn't have come at a better time. This week, President Trump appointed Anthony Scaramucci to be his new Communications Director, and the girls waste no time ripping "the Mooch" a new a$$hole, before celebrating the r ...…
 
Julie & Brandy are back in the country just in time to break down all the tomfoolery between Donald Trump Jr and Jared Kushner at their top secret Russia meeting! After that, they go over the (basically) defunct Senate Health Care bill and play a very special clip of Vice President Mike Pence lying to everyone about it! The girls just got back ...…
 
Hold on to your hats because the girls get VERY random in this pre-recorded masterpiece. What was supposed to be an episode focusing on Julie's lesbian rage, turns into a messy, casserole of emotions from both girls. First Judge Julie eviscerates Scott Pruitt, then a gay question about Nancy Pelosi ends up in a tangent about dead pets and AIDS. ...…
 
This is probably the dumbest episode of Dumb Gay Politics yet, so listen with caution. The girls are hung over (again), but it really doesn't matter since the only 'news' is the non-news of the proposed Senate Health Care bill. They slowly meander through that bulls*t, before going off-limits with their favorite Real Housewife of New York, Dori ...…
 
It's been a week since the live podcast and Julie & Brandy are still processing (and still recovering).

After that, they are joined by Josiah Johnson, the creator, writer and star of Comedy Central's animated hit, "Legends of C ...…
 
After much anticipation and threats of cancelling, Julie and Brandy record their first podcast LIVE at The Improv in Hollwyood. Surrounded by 5 or 6 actual fans and about 35 close frenemies, the girls tested their dumb, gayness in front of a live audience and lived to tell about it. They talked about getting too high the night before, how Reali ...…
 
It's the day before Julie & Brandy do their live podcast at the Hollywood Improv, so they pre-recorded this half-assed episode, so they'd have time to prepare. They purge their feelings about Trump pulling out of the Paris Agreement, and answer some listener questions, but the crowning glory is a call from their good friend Ronnie Karam who fil ...…
 
It's the conservative episode that no one's been waiting for! This week, Julie & Brandy put their focus on the "right side" of politics by dissecting what it means to be in the middle. talking about republican politicians they actually like, and answering some partisan-related questions, They round out this confusing episode by interviewing a T ...…
