Join Julie Goldman (the gay) and Brandy Howard (the dumbass) as they dissect this week's political news. The podcast with lots of feelings, but no actual facts. New episodes every Tuesday!




Colonel Sarah F*ckabee Sanders

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, but other than that, get ready for another average episode.


Jared Kushner's middle name is Corey

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 tough, but try to listen all the way to the end, because Melania stops by for an extra long visit and spills some special tea about Jared.


A kiki with Sarah Silverman

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 living legend.


Emma Gonzalez for President

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 about the 2nd Amendment from Julie's brainiac brother. Don't let the description fool ya, this episode is really not that good.


"No Thank You, Mr. Cosby" with Jen Cohn

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 resigned last week, and it's caused quite a sh*tstorm. Top it all off with Nancy Pelosi's eight hour speech and you've got one hell of a romantic...


State of the Buffoon-ion with Tammie Brown

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 appearance. The jury is still out on this episode, because much like the real news, there's a lot gong on, with very little pertinent information....


Reclaiming our #TimesUp with Julie Bindel

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 lady listener and then do a lady-based So There's That. Hopefully you like vaginas, because this episode has some big ones.


Marching in the Ladies Room

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, Julie & Brandy leave no pink stone unturned. If you manage to make it to the end of this episode, you'll learn more about the Women's March than...


Shut Your Sh*thole

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 hell of a random episode.


Bannon & Pubes

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, the girls ride their tiny bicicleta to scheww and she teaches them the cliff's notes version. Buckle up and get ready for a literary ride, because...


Twenty Eighteen Evergreen with Heather McDonald

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.


The Retrospecting Evergreen

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 a place in their hearts, but Lea Black, Kate Casey, and Anthony Atamanuik were three of the very BEST. Join Julie & Brandy to say goodbye to 2017....


Merry Hannumas!

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 Christmakuh than dreidels and Santa Clause.


Nuthin' but Net Neutrality

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 hell they actually talked about.


Tragic Taxploitation

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 fromNational Parks. The madness becomes literal by the end, when Julie damn-near loses her mind. Grab a xanax and some stress-balls, because this...


Anniversary Episode with Heather McGhee

It's the one year anniversary of Dumb Gay Politics, and Julie and Brandy are celebrating in style. First they talk about the shitstorm of North Korea's cyber terrorism team, and then they ride their tiny bicicleta to scheew to learn about voting rights and campaign finance reform. The girls are giddy with excitement and can hardly pay attention in class, because their professor for the day is one of their all-time IDOLS and American treasure: Heather McGhee!


The Thanksgiving Episode

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.


Revenge on the Pervs with Lauren Sivan- LIVE!

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.


Anniversary Indictments & the Dossi-Hayyy!

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 on the Steele Dossier, and reminisce on Tom Price's jetsetting douchecapades! Forget what you've heard, this podcast is DUMB AS F*CK.


Halloween Evergreen with Anthony Atamanuik

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 random and very evergreen- but the girls are kinda drunk, so you know... the usz.
