8-30-18 Nicole Sandler Show – Thursdays with Howie Klein

Nicole begins the show with an update on the news of the day. It's Thursday, so Howie Klein of Down with Tyranny and the Blue America PAC joins in to discuss the latest primary results and more GOP dirty tricks as we approach the midterm elections.

Beware the Voter Scorned- Arizona Edition: ‘BradCast’ 3/24/2016

On today's BradCast, guest host Nicole Sandler of Radio Or Not chats with Ari Berman, author of Give Us the Ballot: The Modern Struggle for Voting Rights in America, who explains that many of the problems voters experienced Tuesday in Arizona are traced directly back to the Supreme Court’s gutting of the Voting Rights Act. He wrote about that at The Nation. Of course, he didn't absolve Maricopa County Recorder Helen Purcell for her decision to reduce the number of polling places from 211 to 60. That action and the chaos that ensued prompted attorney Adrian Fontes to challenge her for [...]

10-9-15 Nicole Sandler Show – Imagine Peace and Sanity

On what would have been John Lennon's 75th birthday, the US just passed the 14 year mark in our war in Afghanistan. Internally, the GOP is at war with itself, and the goings on in the GOP caucus more closely resemble a soap opera than an august legislative body. Comedian Julianna Forlano joins in to help Nicole make sense of the week. We end the week with a Flashback Friday musical blast from Nicole's radio past. Today, we go back to August 1994 with blues great John Hammond.

It’s the Supreme Court Stupid (aka Obama 2012)

Listen to this episode: {play}http://traffic.libsyn.com/radioornot/20120626_Nicole_Sandler_Show_.mp3 {/play} Podcast: Play in new window   While most of the corporate media spent all of yesterday talking about whether the Supreme Court's ruling on the constitutionality of Arizona's SB1070 was a win or loss for the Obama administration, they were missing the boat on the truly devastating decision handed down by the highest court in the land. In American Tradition Partnership, Inc. v. Bullock, according the summary at SCOTUS blog, the court overturn[ed] a Montana Supreme Court decision upholding a 1912 voter-approved ban on corporations’ spending of their own money on political campaigns in that [...]

It’s a Two-Fer Tuesday!

Yes, another busy day here in the Radio or Not studios.  I'll host my regular show today, at the regular 10-noon ET time, and then change gears to guest host the Randi Rhodes Show this afternoon (3-6pm ET), as she's been caught up in the ice storm that's paralyzing the northeast again today.  Nice winter, huh? There's plenty to talk about, including Sarah Palin's pity party on Faux News last night, and the ramp up to the GOP vote to repeal health care, and much more... And when it's Tuesday, we hang with GottaLaff of The Political Carnival for a [...]

The Role of Hate Speak

Those of us on the left aren't the only ones who immediately thought of Sarah Palin's crosshairs map and Sharron Angles' "Second Amendment remedies" when we heard that Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords was shot. The right wing immediately went into defensive mode. Did you notice that the first time we heard Sheriff Dupnik speak on Saturday, he called out professional incendiary talkers: "People tend to poo-poo this business about all the vitriol that we hear inflaming the American public by people who make a living off of doing that. That may be free speech, but it's not without consequences." You'll notice [...]

Wednesday Busy Wednesday

What a show we have for you tonight.  Unfortunately, I have no time for the rest of the interviews I taped at Netroots Nation... all the more reason to tune in tomorrow night! Of course, the big story today comes from Arizona, where US District Court Judge Susan Bolton blocked the most controversial sections of SB 1070, which was slated to take effect tomorrow.  The law will still go into effect tomorrow, but without the most heinous provisions-- including the sections that required officers to check a person's immigration status while enforcing other laws, and the parts that required immigrants [...]

Tuesday on the Randi Rhodes Show

It's another busy day on the Randi Rhodes Show... I'll be joined by Greg Sargent who writes the Plum Line blog for the Washington Post.  We'll talk about the big story of the day: The DOJ has filed a lawsuit against the state of Arizona over the constitutionality of its immigration law. Jon Maddux, CEO of You Walk Away will explain how his company "empowers homeowners through intelligent strategic default"... Yep, they say you walk away from your mortgage! And Jason Leopold, Deputy Managing Editor at Truthout.org will tell us about his newest investigative report: "Dangerous Cost Cuts at Alyeska [...]

Wednesday on Radio or Not!

Wednesdays are always fun for me, because we start the show with a visit from Christy Harvey of the Center for American Progress. I've never met Christy in person, but became a fan of hers during the early days of Air America where she was a frequent guest on the Al Franken Show. Last year, when I was doing nights on Air America, I contacted Christy and asked if she'd do a similar segment with me.. and we've been doing it ever since.  She brings great insight and lots of news stories to talk about that we other wise might [...]
