The Global Climate March is finally here. Millions of people around the world are striking to call attention to global climate change. We'll bring you up to date on the climate strikers. We'll also speak with labor reporter Mike Elk, of the reader-supported Payday Report, who's on the road covering the GM workers strike. And Joshua Potash is a young activist who's advocating for massive general strikes in the US, a la Hong Kong and Puerto Rico, to effect massive change in this country. For more on the work Joshua and his friends are doing, visit SOSAmerica2019.com And, as [...]
Every Thursday, Nicole Sandler is joined by Howie Klein of Down with Tyranny and the Blue America PAC to talk politics. Today, we flag some big, un-democratic policies of the Democratic Party and more...
Israel went to the polls yesterday, and the race is too close to call. But it looks like Bibi will be out as Prime Minister of Israel after 5 terms. Nicole called a hotel in Tel Aviv to connect with an Israeli citizen to get their thoughts on the news. Click on the link for the Trip Adviser page for The Vera hotel. If I ever get there and can afford $265 a night, that's where I'll stay! Then we turn our attention to Climate Week and this Friday's Global Climate Strike, which kicks it all off. 350.org's North [...]
It's the start of another week of The Nicole Sandler Show. As she does each Tuesday, GottaLaff joins Nicole to shoot the shit about the news, which today includes Corey Lewandowski testifying before the House Judiciary Committee, Trump threatening war against Iran, and the world is gearing up for climate week. Strap in, here we go. DOWNLOAD Today was another double-header as I guest-hosted the BradCast. Let's Focus on Climate Week since the Dems Stink at Oversight: 'BradCast' 9/17/2019 By Nicole Sandler on 9/17/2019 4:46pm PT It's a somewhat dejected NICOLE SANDLER, once again guest-hosting the BradCast. I’m dejected because [...]
The third of the Democratic party's primary debates is in the history books. Today, Digby joins me to talk about the good, the bad and the ugly of it... But this is only part one of today's show, posted above. I'm also guest hosting The BradCast today for Brad Friedman, who's dealing with a family medical emergency. Digby returns along with the great Driftglass for an OG progressive blogger get-together! Click below to listen. CLICK HERE TO LISTEN TO THE SHOW!...
Tonight is the third of the Democratic primary debates and only (!) 10 candidates qualified, so it's just one night. But the knives are out for Elizabeth Warren, and I have a problem with that. I'll explain. It's Thursday, so Howie Klein will be here to talk politics, and the latest problems with Pelosi- not only hedging on impeachment, but keeping an assault weapons ban from passing the House.
Today is the 18th anniversary of the 9-11 attacks, and Donald Trump remains an embarrassment to our nation. Today also marks six months since the last official White House Press Briefing from the press secretary. We'll open the show, as usual, with something funny, and then take a look at the day's news. Our guest today is Krystal Ball, host of Rising on Hill TV, an awesome woman and outspoken progressive advocate, one of the few remaining in the corporate media.
Every Tuesday, Nicole and Laffy get together to riff on the day's news. Too bad there wasn't much to discuss today...
We've arrived at the end of another week, though many didn't. This was the week of Dorian who thankfully spared Puerto Rico and the South Florida coastline, but hit the Bahamas hard, decimating the islands of Abacos and Grand Bahama. Trump couldn't stop embarrassing himself by claiming that Alabama was in the cone of uncertainty (it wasn't). As the death toll rises, Trump continues to divert out attention away from the horrible things he's doing to the US. Will Bunch of the Philadelphia Inquirer is my guest to officially close the book on summer 2019.
It's Thursday! That means Howie Klein of Down with Tyranny and the Blue America PAC returns to talk politics. After months of disbelief over the DCCC's policy of punishing any candidates mounting a primary challenge comes a similar but even worse policy from the Senate's campaign arm, the DSCC! If time permits, we'll also talk about how to talk politics with a-political people. But we'll begin with a call across the pond to our pal Denis Campbell, who'll do his best to explain what is happening over there.
