(this photo is a meme rightclicked from the inquirer fb comments page, creator of the original not indicated)
English translation of parts of the podcast:
Ang quote for the day marahil ay galing kay Senator Trillanes: “Hindi ko siya titigilan hanggang makulong sya”. [Translation: Apparently the quote for the day came from Senator Trillanes: “I will not stop going after him till hell freezes over or till he is jailed.” (i embellished the English translation a bit 🙂 because somehow that was his tone and the literal translation does not capture his emphasis.) ]
Ang tinutukoy nya ay si VP Binay, bunsod ito ng desisyon ni VP Binay na huwag nang ituloy ang debate sa kanya batay sa kanyang mga sariling dahilan, at ito nga ang headline ngayon ng halos lahat ng mamamahayag. (Translation: He is referring to VP Binay, arising from the decision of VP Binay not to push thru with the debate with him for his own reasons, and this was the headline used by most news organizations.)

Kaya, duon nga ang gustong patunguhan nito batay sa pahayag ni Senator Trillanes: ang ipakulong si VP Binay o ang paatrasin siya sa eleksyon. (And so it is, that’s where this joust is headed: to slam the slammer on VP Binay or make him surrender his electoral bid.)
Sinabi na nga kanina ni Senator Trillanes: Kulong o eleksyon. [Senator Trillanes already said: slammer or surrender (the elections)]
Ang podcast na ito ay tungkol lamang sa legal aspect o legal na aspeto. (this podcast is only about the legal aspect. )
Yung “KULONG” o tungkol sa kulong. (It’s about the “slammer” part or the criminal aspect). Hindi eleksyon. (not the surrender part or not the “surrender- elections” part.) Iyung tungkol sa eleksyon, ipaubaya na lang natin sa mga pundits.(the election-part — let’s leave that to the pundits).
Ang alternatibong ibinigay ni Senator Trillanes ay ang pag-atras ni VP Binay sa 2016 presidential elections. (Translation: The alternative given by Senator Trillanes is for VP Binay to surrender his electoral bid.)
