J. McVay and Joe Virgillito round out their series of episodes counting down to the end of the already-in-progress election, discussing the major events of the last couple of weeks:

  • Polling and high turnout in early/mail in balloting
  • SCOTUS’ decision to disallow counting of votes in Wisconsin that come in after election day and Kavanaugh’s hackish opinion
  • Judge Amy Coney Barrett is now Justice Amy Coney Barrett
  • As the pandemic worsens, Pence’s team has an outbreak and he doesn’t care
  • Trumpworld thinks crowd size = winning
  • Trump may fire FBI Director Wray for not meddling in the election
  • 545 migrant children are still separated from parents who cannot be found
  • Stephen Miller wants to ramp up his assault on immigration in a potential 2nd Trump term

This election is about one question: Does the person you’re voting for care if you or anyone else lives or dies? One candidate clearly doesn’t while the other does.

And we also hear live performances from Vanessa Silberman and Pine Barons, both recorded exclusively for BTRtoday.
