    BASEDBrief: Breaking Down the Senate Gun Control Package, GOP Spars Over Big Tech & Is the Economy Crashing?

    A bipartisan group of senators just unveiled a compromise gun control proposal that looks like it might actually become law. Brad & Hannah break down what’s in the plan and address their concerns—plus, have a lively debate about so-called “red flag” laws. 
     
    Then, they analyze the intra-GOP battle over how to respond to Big Tech, with Senator Rand Paul recently coming out firmly against Big Government “solutions” being pushed by some populist Republicans like Senator Josh Hawley. Finally, they discuss the stock market and crypto crash and whether we’re headed for a recession—plus some fun hot takes on cucumbers & Tom Cruise.

Addicting Podcast!

I was a lost “republican” who’s beliefs didn’t align with the democrats, but got tricked by the republicans “small government” ruse. I stumbled upon Hannah’s Facebook page and couldn’t believe how much I agreed with her political/moral views which eventually lead me to the Libertarian Party. Now through her podcast I found Brad and follow him along multiple social media platforms. Keep up the great work guys, you’re appreciated!

I Stan for Brad and Hannah

Thank you for keeping me sane as I endure the daily political insanity of living in a West Coast city that is radically statist. I love the content and presentation of topics and consider you all one of my key sources for informing and broadening my perspective on policy issues across the board.

Great show, Excellent hosts

I don’t totally agree but as Hana would say- “That’s fine, I have the right to. And that’s a good thing.” I would love to hear/see Hanna and that other guys ;) on other shows like Ruben, Rogan & TimCast. I would like to hear them on more left shows but I doubt they’d have them on. (Pod Save America, Friends like these, etc)
