1-6-17 Nicole Sandler Show – My Attorney to the Dem’s Rescue

Greetings from Floriduh. We used to do a weekly segment on the show featuring typical Flori-DUH stories, but you haven't seen anything yet if you haven't taken a look at Miami politics. Some of my favorite authors, including Carl Hiaasen and Dave Barry have made careers of writing about the dysfunction in the tip of America's dick. But on this show, we examined the insanity happening right now in the Miami-Dade County Democratic Party. I know you'll be shocked to hear this, but there were shenanigans at play as some of the party  elders were trying to get their preferred [...]

1-5-16 Nicole Sandler Show – Happy New Year… or Not

I'm back! And so is Bernie Sanders. Quick... Bernie's first action as "outreach director" (or whatever other dumb title was given to him in Senate Dem leadership by Little Chuckie Schmuckie) is a big day of ACA rallies around the country. He's tasked Democratic members of Congress to organize events in their districts... but I live in Floriduh. So imagine my surprise when I called my congressman's office to find there IS an event scheduled here. Sunday, Jan 15, 2pm at the Sunrise Amphitheater.... about 10-15 minutes from my house. The following Saturday is the Women's March on Washington. I've [...]

11-26-15 The Day After with Ari Berman, Wesley Lowery & Sen Bob Graham

I was fortunate enough to be able to interview a number of authors at this year's Miami Book Fair, so I thought I'd take advantage of Thanksgiving and the day after to share some of them with you. Today, the guy who probably could have predicted the outcome of our presidential election better than most others, as Ari Berman has been telling us about the whittling away and destruction of the Voting Rights Act for years with his book, Give Us the Ballot: The Modern Struggle for Voting Rights in America. Wesley Lowery was Tweeting from a McDonald's in Ferguson, MO, [...]

8-19-16 Nicole Sandler Show – Ugly Americans Exposed

I'm back today for my final two-hour show for a while. Beginning Monday, I'll do one hour a day, from 3-4pm Eastern until I go in for surgery. I'll keep you posted on that... Today, we had no choice but to confront the ugly American, thanks to those Naked Trumps that appeared in five cities yesterday! In addition to Donald's naked little Donnie, there were other ugly Americans to talk about -- Paul Manafort and Ryan Lochte. The man who could (and should) unseat Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Tim Canova, checks in during the final stretch toward election day on August 30. And in the second hour, [...]

8-15-16 Nicole Sandler Show – Political Surreality Show

    Nicole Sandler discusses the surrealism of this year's presidential race, and how "reality" television has skewed our perceptions. Heather "Digby" Parton weighs in on the insanity of it all.

7-27-16 Nicole Sandler Show – Black and White World

  Yesterday, I talked about working out the conflicts of our inner voices, though some people thought I "went too far." Others thanked me for being "spot on." All I know is all I know. Today, it's that the world continues down its pathway of madness. People hear what they want to hear instead of actually listening to what's being said. We talk past one another instead of with each other. Until we learn to shut up and listen, we're bound to continue making the same mistakes. Today, I talked a bit about that disconnect. I praised the celebration of [...]

7-6-16 Nicole Sandler Show – History Keeps Repeating

  We awoke to an awful déjà vu this morning. Another black man was killed by cops in a show of excessive, brutal police force. Alton Sterling, a 37-year old father of five, was selling CDs in front of a convenience store, something he did regularly to help support his family. Someone called the cops on him, and now Alton Sterling is dead. We are talking about it because someone captured the shooting on video. And now a second video has surfaced. And tomorrow, the trial begins for the most senior of the cops who was involved in the wild [...]

6-29-16 Nicole Sandler Show – All Or Nothing?

I'm conflicted, in case I haven't already made that clear. As I wrote earlier this morning when introducing Mimi Kennedy's guest post, I can't imagine myself voting for Hillary Clinton for president, but even more inconceivable to me is the idea of a Donald Trump presidency! The good news is that I still have about five months before I have to decide what I'll do come election day. This is the time for looking at the big picture, which is what Bernie Sanders did in an op-ed for the NY Times titled "Democrats Need to Wake Up." I read the [...]

6-15-16 Nicole Sandler Show – FloriDUH and other American Mistakes

As if this wasn't a bad enough week in Florida - from the murder of The Voice singer Christina Grimmie in Orlando Friday night, to the massacre at the Pulse nightclub Saturday night, and last night we learned that a two-year old toddler was grabbed by an alligator at a "lake" at the Walt Disney World Grand Floridian Resort and Spa. Unfortunately, while this state struggles with these tragedies, the people tasked with running the state continuing to prove they're unfit for office. Take Governor Rick Scott, please. Seriously. This moron refused to even acknowledge that the club where 49 souls [...]

6-14-16 Nicole Sandler Show – What the World Needs Now

Can we take the temperature down a few notches please? I logged into the Radio or Not chat room this morning only to see one semi-regular chatter going on and on about the massacre in Orlando being a "false flag" operation. And the kicker was her subsequent comment that after "watching the videos" she's convinced that Sandy Hook was too. Others in the YouTube chat went ballistic when I played a bit of Samantha Bee's powerful and spot-on commentary from last night's show about the murders in Orlando because "she supports HRC." Newsflash, if you have no use for anyone [...]
