After a look at the day's news, Author Jeanne Devon joins Nicole from Alaska, the setting of her new book, The Blood of Patriots: How I Took Down an Anti-Government Militia with Beer, Bounty Hunting and Badassery, a frighteningly and often funny true story of one man fighting sovereign citizens and militias.
Deal or No Deal between the Dems and Trump on DACA? That's the big story of the day. And it's Thursday, so Howie Klein of Down with Tyranny and the Blue America PAC joined in. Today, he told us of a new project that Frank Schaeffer is working on-- interviewing progressive candidates to help the Democrats take back Congress, and about how the DCCC is trying to bypass the primary in VA-10.

We got very lucky. I live in Coral Springs, FL. It's Northwest Broward County, just east of Ft. Lauderdale. Thankfully Hurricane Irma only knocked down a bunch of tree limbs and took out some screen panels in our back yard over here, and we escaped unharmed. I wish the rest of the state could say the same! So, I was back on the air today to tell my Irma tale. Today is Tuesday. Our pal GottaLaff joins me every Tuesday to share some of the best Tweets she finds in her Tweet Spot. So today, we were back to business [...]

Nicole is back from vacation to hang with GottaLaff on our regular Tuesday get together. We talked about DACA, Hurricanes, North Korea and the rest of the news.
Twenty-five years ago today I was down here in South Florida, visiting my dad. I was living in Los Angeles at the time, and he had just had an accident that left him quadriplegic, so I was flying in every few weeks to see him. He had just been home from the hospital for a month or so, and we didn't yet have a van or any means of transportation to when we learned that Hurricane Andrew was headed our way. I was alone with him that night. The nurse decided she should be home with her family. I watched [...]
We start the show with an old friend, She's History's Amy Simon, who's celebrating Women's Equality Day this weekend with two performances of "She's History" in Los Angeles.

Then, it was Howie Klein of Down with Tyranny and the Blue America PAC on a new candidate for Congress from Maine, and Trump's newest shameful target.
Following Trump's unhinged rally in Phoenix last night, we checks in with Denis Campbell, aka @UKProgressive, publisher of UK Progressive magazine, and co-host of The Three Muckrakers podcast to get his take on how others in the world are reacting to our epic mistake of a president.
