March is Women's History Month and yesterday was International Women's Day. Nicole Sandler welcomes cultural herstorian Amy Simon back to the show, the creator, writer and performer of "She's History: A Play About Women who Make and Made History".
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. Visit her website for ticket info - but if you're in the Los Angeles area, please go check out her show. 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.

As you likely know by now, I'm battling lung cancer. The first part of the battle had me being poked, prodded and scanned. The second is finding the surgeon who'll cut the tumor(s) out of me! That's what we're doing now. Yesterday, we were in Tampa, having a consultation with a great surgeon there, Dr. Lary Robinson. Today, we were closer to home, at the UM/Sylvester Cancer Center to meet with Dr. Dao Nguyen. Also truly impressive. While I was out, we ran abbreviated one-hour programs... The podcasts are posted below. I'll be back tomorrow, and will let you know [...]
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.
Today, Nicole Sandler discusses "kismet" - how some things are meant to be. It's on that theory that she again pushes back on the media narrative calling for Bernie Sanders to drop out! Bob Kincaid of the Head On Radio Network tells us about the candidates' stances on coal and mountaintop removal mining (and the Clinton controversy surrounding it). And it's Gliberal Goddess Tuesday as @GottaLaff and Amy Simon join in for hour two!
Today is Primary Day in New York and, as the song goes, anything can change. Today, Nicole Sandler talks about the city where she was born, Bernie Sanders, and more. Her guests today are Black Lives Matter activist and candidate for Mayor of Baltimore DeRay Mckesson and The Gliberal Goddesses - @Gottalaff, Amy Simon and Nicole gather again...
The world awoke to another terrorist attack, this time in Brussels, Belgium. We begin today's show checking in with Denis Campbell, editor of UK Progressive, for an update. Fellow commentator Benjamin Dixon weighs in on the 2016 primary season as we enter the second half. And the Gliberal Goddesses re-convene for some fabulous female facts as Women's History Month continues...
Today is primary day in Michigan & Mississippi for all, plus Hawaii & Idaho for the GOP. It's also International Women's Day. We'll talk all that and more today. Guests are PG Sittenfeld, candidate for US Senate from Ohio, and the Gliberal Goddesses - @GottaLaff, Amy Simon and Nicole gather again.
