It's Tuesday, so Laffy joins in to poke fun at the ridiculousness that is the Trump administration and the insanity contained therein.
Via Nicole, today's show: Fox News and its "star" "personality" Bill O'Reilly have something in common with the president in addition to their propensity for making shit up: they're all sexual harassers. All have been sued numerous times for their illegal and unwarranted advances on women, with Fox and O'Reilly ponying up many millions of dollars to settle with a number of them. And now advertisers are fleeing! For some unknown reason, Fox just signed O'Reilly to a new $18 million a year contract, even as the new allegations pile up. I guess it's a good thing he makes that [...]
Via Nicole: It was another crazy weekend in Trump-land. From his Saturday morning Twitter tirade to Monday’s Muslim Ban 2.0 and the “American Health Care Act” revealed – @GottaLaff & I discuss it all. Amy Simon of She’s History joins in to tell us about Women’s History Month and International Woman’s Day, happening tomorrow along with “A Day Without A Woman” – the International Woman’s Strike! She’s performing her one-woman version of She’s History in Los Angeles on March 18. Tell Amy you heard about the show here, and she’ll give you half off the price of your ticket! Tomorrow, I’ll [...]
I did a show today. I wasn't here yesterday or Wednesday, as I wasn't doing well. More about that in a moment, but first I must explain why, although there was a new show today, there's no podcast. YouTube would not connect, and I tried for almost an hour. So, keeping a positive attitude, I just realized today's show was to be audio only. The software that I use to stream audio always usually records a copy of it -- as long as I remember to type the date and start the recording process. When I forget to do that, I'm [...]
I could blame the tardiness of this post on the holidays... This year, Christmas, Channukah, Kwanzaa and Festivus all fell at virtually the same time, so it was a big deal... for some. Frankly, I like this time of the year because it's the end of the year and the beginning of a new one. My biggest grievance from 2016 is......(drumroll).... everything. This was an awful year. From lung cancer to Donald Trump -- that about says it all! Another grievance is my phone system. I'll have to figure that one out... In the meantime, this was a very fun [...]
I usually love Fridays. They mean the weekend is here. But when you're dealing with medical uncertainty, it's another 48 hours in a dead zone. Nothing will happen until Monday. Today, we learned that the company who takes my money every month and in return is supposed to pay my medical bills DENIED my doctor's order for a PET-CT scan to find out what this mass is on my left lung. DENIED. So, I'm going in first thing Monday morning for a regular old CAT scan that, according to my doctor, will NOT give him the info he needs to [...]
That's my daughter carrying that awesome sign that reads "History says change happens. Make some!" She was probably 12 years old at the Occupy Ft. Lauderdale march that I dragged her to with me at the height of the Occupy movement. Just look how far we've come since then. Today, we talked about making history as we're making history. Boca Britany Somers joined us in the new studios today as our first in-studio guest! She's welcome any time, but since there was major news for the transgender community and the rest of the world this week, I invited Brit in to [...]
Forget presumptive, Hillary Clinton is the "Presumptuous nominee". Today, Nicole Sandler discusses this break from reality and the rest of the day's news and information with her regular Thursday guests Driftglass and Howie Klein.
Mid-way through reading David Dayen's book, "Chain of Title," Nicole Sandler is thrilled to welcome the journalist and author to the show to discuss the foreclosure fraud that scammed the nation (and continues today). Plus the media continues lying about the presidential race, and She's History's Amy Simon discusses sexism in today's political world and more.
It's official. Donald Trump will be the Republican nominee for the 2016 presidential election. What's next? We'll discuss the possibilities today with professor and author Harvey J. Kaye and Blue America's Howie Klein. Plus, the Alberta Tar Sands are burning, and D'ump doesn't believe in Climate Change...
