• "Womp, Womp"
    by Ellen Fleming & Lexi Dussi on June 22, 2018 at 8:47 pm

    We are back for another great week of news. Well, I suppose it's not a "great" week of news when we're talking about children in cages... but you get the point! Ellen is drinking, Lexi isn't because she started a new workout program. Most important, the ladies give their updates. Lexi shares her experience at the Ice Cream Museum and Ellen talks about her upcoming trip to Aruba. And then of course they cover the top headlines which primarily turns into a quick rundown of their opinions and then they spend the majority of the time talking about the migrant children being torn from their families. WTF? As a friend of ours reminded us- "we like our children like we like our eggs. Cage Free". Listen, review (PLEASE) follow us @BallotsBottles @EllenFlem @LexiDussi and connect with us on Facebook & Instagram. New content. EVERY DAMN DAY! […]

  • Fake it 'till you bake it!
    by Ellen Fleming & Lexi Dussi on June 9, 2018 at 3:27 am

    It's not the quantity of the stories we tell, its the quality of the content we talk about! And the content is obviously good because its primarily about ourselves... Obviously. Audio is OK, but we're not rich yet, so we can't afford the equipment that makes us sound pretty. Bottom line, we're coming at you with cutting edge news. This week the ladies breakdown everything you need to know in 2 minutes- a mix between pop culture, sports, politics and our environment. Our two top stories? Bill Clinton, obviously. Guy had a really hard time dealing with Craig Melvin this week. And then we talk about controversy surrounding a baker who decided not to bake a gay couple a cake for their wedding. Like WTF?! Per usual... throw us a like, a follow, write a review, tell a friend... do something to acknowledge our existence.

    by Ellen Fleming & Lexi Dussi on May 24, 2018 at 6:38 am

    New week, same us! Coming at you with news that is partially fake, partially real and mostly inflated by our own opinions. It's only Monday, but nothing like curing a weekend hangover with a couple of drinks, AMIRIGHT? This week we'll walk you through top headlines and then unfortunately we need to address the Santa Fe Shooting as well as the Trump/Obama Investigation.

    Hey guys - welcome to this weeks episode of Ballots and Bottles. The ladies are talking about themselves duh. Ellen is drinking a weird half bottle of sangria from a can? But Lexi is drinking a Cab Sav from the brand Lesse Fitch - seeing how she drank a glass before the podcast started, safe to say she liked it. Ellen and Lexi give the top ten headlines, with some vague details (Still don't get the Chris Brown story)They then move into the Iran Nuclear Deal, how all the American's released from North Korea were all named Kim (SUSPECT) and then onto the Met Gala.

  • Speaking of the White House Correspondent Dinner...
    by Ellen Fleming & Lexi Dussi on May 4, 2018 at 5:49 am

    To go along with the theme of the week "free speech" (brought to you by the White House Correspondent's Dinner) we bring to you another week of unfiltered coverage of extremely serious subjects. JK... this week we spend most of our time recapping what went down in the world of pop culture. For example did you know that Kim and Tristan unfollowed each other on social media and that Ronnie from Jersey shore is still in love with Sammi? Exactly. Listen! Also, this week Lexi gives a somewhat emotional review of the Handsmaid Tale and Ellen gives Michelle Wolfs act a run for its money. Tune in. Tell everyone you know. Except my mom. Don't tell my mom.

  • Celebrity Presidential Cabinet Ft. Brunch
    by Ellen Fleming & Lexi Dussi on February 19, 2018 at 4:37 am

    Happy 1 Year anniversary! Ballots and Bottles are celebrating this big day with a collaboration episode with their favorite podcast friends (their only) Brunch! Ellen, Lexi, Pete and DJ give you their presidential cabinet picks, and while some see veterans affairs only suited for those whom have had public affairs, and other believe James Franco is still likable, the end result is pretty amazing. Also - pretty sure there was more thought put into this one than Trumps actual cabinet.

  • The Shutdown Shitshow
    by Ellen Fleming & Lexi Dussi on January 21, 2018 at 6:53 pm

    Ellen and Lexi are both under the weather, so the podcast is a few days late this week. That being said - welcome to this weeks episode of Ballots and Bottles. The girls are drinking Sour Wench by Ballast Point, and they both highly suggest checking it out. They discuss Chicago, Tide Pods, Porn stars, and the US Government shutting down, but unlike DMX - not opening up shop. If you take anything away, its the thought provoking question of, “Would you rather have sex with a pig and no one ever finds out, or not have sex with a pig, but everyone thinks you did?” THESE ARE THE HARD QUESTIONS US JOURNALISTS ASK Review, subscribe etc (GIVE US REVIEWS PEOPLE PLEASE) @BallotsBottles @EllenFlem @LexiDuss […]

  • Golden Globes & Sloppy Steve
    by Ellen Fleming & Lexi Dussi on January 12, 2018 at 5:38 am

    If we don’t talk about the Golden Globes did they really even happen? Yes. But like, we’re still going to give you our opinion, because what would the world be like without our opinions... AMIRIGHT? In this episode, recorded on Wednesday, January 10th, the ladies breakdown the Golden Globes from their perspectives, while drinking in Lexi’s opinion the worlds worst wine- Big House Wine Co. 'Bootlegger Series - Lucky Luciano' Bootlegger White. Also discussed is Fire and Fury the book newly released to personally victimize Trump. With that, the ladies of course talk more about Steve Bannon deemed by Trump as “Sloppy Steve”, a little bit about breightbart and fake news in general and of course they have to talk about Trumps day to day work schedule seems to have a lot of “executive time” for Trump to tug his “button”. That’s not a fact, but is anything really factual these days? Exactly. Five star reviews, follows us on social media and as always spread the good word- to family, friends, distant relatives, neighbors you don’t really know.... honestly we don’t care who listens, we just care about how many listens we get. Thx. @ballotsbottles @ellenflem @lexiduss […]
