Every Thursday, Nicole Sandler welcomes Howie Klein of Down with Tyranny and the Blue America PAC to the show. Today, "Should The Country Be Solely Ruled By Multimillionaires And Billionaires?". That post will go up at DWT tomorrow. Today, we played a song by an artist named Matthew Grimm that Howie's going to use in some ads. Here's the video in case you didn't get to see it yet. And finally, Howie told us about how Blue America is going to award $16,000 to three candidates based on your votes. Click here for all the details on how to vote, [...]

4-7-17 Nicole Sandler Show – Bombs Away and Your Internet Privacy Too

Trump lobbed $88 million worth of Tomahawk missiles at Syria's Shayrat Airfield, and didn't even damage it badly enough to keep them from using it today. The entire charade is troubling. I covered it in today's What's News? episode and on the show... In the wake of D'ump's gutting of any internet privacy protections we may have previously enjoyed, I wanted to get some useful tips. So I invited Jacob Hoffman-Andrews, a Senior Staff Technologist at the Electronic Frontier Foundation on the show to talk about VPNs, two-step verification, https, and other tools we might want to use. Spend some [...]

Flashback Friday – Iraq, Nixon & Sting

Sting with Nicole Sandler at Channel 103.1/Los Angeles - Oct 1999   Each Friday morning, we wrap up our broadcast week with a trip into my musical radio past. Believing that music soothes the savage beast, it was especially useful today as the world has descended into savage madness. More on that in a bit. Today, our Flashback Friday featured my two interview with the former Police-man, Sting! I first interviewed him at LA's legendary KSCA fm 101.9 in 1996, in conjunction with the release of his Mercury Falling album. As he noted, our "Music Hall" was named [...]

Between the Shiite & Where the Sunni Don’t Shine

It's just one giant mess in Iraq, most likely exacerbated by our invasion over a decade ago. And the question is whether or not we should get involved again. I say no. But it's not up to me.. This morning, I was excited to welcome Juan Cole to the program. Unfortunately for me, a power surge knocked me off the air just moments before I was to call him. Needless to say, when I did get Juan on the line, I was a bit frazzled, and all the pages I had up on my computer had closed, leaving me a [...]

(REUTERS/Thaier Al-Sudani) If you're confused about what's happening in Iraq right now - plus Iran, Syria, Saudi Arabia and other neighboring countries - you're not alone. The Washington Post attempts  to help us wade through it in "Why The Sunnis and Shias Are Fighting Explained in Two Minutes." Any my first guest this morning, Robert Dreyfuss of The Nation, helped me try to make sense of  Gen. Wesley Clark's war mongering on this [...]
