Nicole returns today after a power outage knocked her off the air on Tuesday. BuzzFeed News' senior investigative journalist Jason Leopold joins Nicole to talk about his reporting, the attacks on his reporting, and how Michael Cohen's testimony vindicated him and more.
From Michael Cohen's explosive testimony to Donald Trump's love affair with Kim Jong Un, this was another crazy week in America. Heather Digby Parton joins Nicole to try make sense out of the insanity.
This is a week that will likely be referenced in history books. Michael Cohen spent yesterday testifying on live television about the many ways his former boss, the sitting president, is "a racist, a con man and a cheat". The Republicans on the committee were a joke, and the freshmen Democrats who had to wait until the end to ask their questions were awesome. Howie Klein of Down with Tyranny and the Blue America PAC joins in to discuss what happened, who were the heroes and who made the biggest fools of themselves and more.
Today's the day that Donald Trump's former personal attorney and fixer Michael Cohen testifies before an open hearing of the House Oversight Committee.

Then, because they saved the best for last, I stayed on until the end of the hearing to hear the questioning from Ro Khanna, Jimmy Gomez, AOC, Ayanna Pressley and Rashida Tlaib. It's worth listening through Michael Cohen's and Elijiah Cummings' closing statements. Pretty good stuff. And Donald Trump belongs in prison.

It's Thursday, so Howie Klein of Down with Tyranny and the Blue America PAC joins Nicole for some political talk. Today, to primary or not to primary... or All Democrats are NOT created equal. Here are Howie's two pieces on primarying bad Democratic incumbents: 2020 Primary Challenges Could Get Pretty Ugly-- No, No... They Will Be Ugly For Sure Primaries-- Against Long Island Incumbents
Adam Green, co-founder of the Progressive Change Campaign Committee, returns to the show to talk about their support for Elizabeth Warren, and how having both Warren and Bernie Sanders in the race is a big win for progressives... Plus the rest of the news... On today's show, I also shared an op-ed from USA Today, penned by Jason Sattler - better known to many as @LOLGOP on Twitter. Here it is, so you can share it too.... There’s only one person who can beat Donald Trump — whoever the Democrats nominate for president in 2020. Sen. Bernie Sanders knows this. [...]
When I asked online if people would be interested in hearing some of my old music radio interviews, quite a few singled out XTC, one of the examples I gave, as one they'd like to hear. So here it is. Andy Partridge and Colin Moulding rarely perform live, one of the subjects I broached with them. So, they didn't perform for us. But we did play some of their songs...
