Clinton addresses the Kavanaugh accusation and Donald Trump's anonymous resisters, among other issues.
 
It was a slow week in politics, so (per usz) Julie & Brandy phoned this one in. They start out with the story of Trump's former campaign manager Paul Manafort agreeing to cooperate with the Special Council investigation in return for a plea deal. 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. Between the New York Times op-ed and Bob Woodward's new book, there's no shortage of anonymous sources lining up to talk sh*t on Trump. 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. First, they talk about Trump's stinky pick for the Supreme Court, Brett Kavanaugh and then head over to Primary Street to break down the most culturally relevant races coming up in November's Midterm elections. 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 Paul Manafort verdict is a small appetizer to the main course of Erin Gibson and her new book "Feminasty: The Complicated Women's Guide to Surviving the Patriarchy Without Drinking Herself to Death." 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. They do manage to talk about about Trump, Lebron, Don Jr.,Russia and Alex Jones- but it's sandwiched in the ...…
 
Emotions (and alcohol) have been running high, so Julie & Brandy took a "personal day" before sh*tting out this episode. They gloss over Paul Manifort's first day in court, rip Facebook & Mark Zuckerberg a new a$$hole, and Julie goes IN on a very jizzy So There's That. 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. The audience (which consisted of 4 fans and 121 day-pass holders to the Portland Queer Comedy Festival) were simultaneously disturbed and curious, but the girls didn't let that get them down. 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. While sweating through their clothes, the girls break down Trump's upcoming meeting with Putin, before analyzing the recent resignatio ...…
 
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 ...…
 
It was a hell of a week to be an American. The culture war is in full swing, so Julie & Brandy deal with the tension the only way they know how - drinking! They recap the historic North Korean summit, tell u about something very tragic that you might not know about, and they take a moment to celebrate Sarah Huckabee Sanders. But the coup de gra ...…
 
It's one week post-Mooch, and the girls are completely phoning this one in.

After that, they spend a wonderful Moment with Melania and then have an important meeting in the Ladies Room about Kim Ka ...…
 
It's a milestone episode for Dumb Gay Politics because Julie & Brandy get to talk to someone who has ACTUALLY worked in the ACTUAL White House. Former Communications Director, Anthony Scaramucci calls in to talk about how Trump & Mike Pence don't suck, and about how Steve Bannon definitely does (his own d*ck). Try and listen with an open mind, ...…
 
Fresh off a two week break that wasn't really a break at all, Julie & Brandy dive right in with President Trump and his on-again/off-again meeting with North Korea. They lighten things up with a (much needed) visit to the Ladies Room, and a verdict from Judge Julie, before breaking down the latest drama with Trump & the NFL. It's an episode fil ...…
 
Since Julie is out of town dancing for dollas (again), this episode was recorded a week early. With a little help from their good friend Ronnie Karam, the girls do a shallow, crappy dive on conspiracies. Like cutting into an undercooked ham, this episode seems fine at the beginning, but it's a hot mess from the middle on.…
 
It's Tuesday, and President Trump pulled out of the Iran deal just in time for Julie & Brandy criticize him for it! After that, they break down this month's crucial primary elections, and then discuss Trump's nominee to head the CIA, Gina Haspell. Things lighten up considerably when Melania stops by to talk about her new campaign and explain wh ...…
 
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. If gun enthusiasts and liars aren't your thing, stick around for Kanye West and his "free thoughts" about opioids and slavery. If time is money, then Yeezy's ...…
 
It was a drama-filled week in the high school cafeteria of American politics, and Julie & Brandy couldn't wait to dive right in. They start with the backlash against comedian Michelle Wolfe who hosted the White House Correspondents dinner, before moving on to skewer the apology cops trolling Joy Reid on twitter. They finish the episode by celeb ...…
 
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.

After that they suffer through tragic stories of Laura Ingraham's homophobic history before going to ...…

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).

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 ...…

The news of the week has Julie & Brandy (but mostly Julie) EXTRA hostile.

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.

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.
