7-12-19 Nicole Sandler Show – Friday Follies with Harry Shearer and Brian Karem

   We wrap up another week with more gaslighting from the liar-in-chief over his failure to get a citizenship question on the 2020 census. He also held a Troll's Gathering at the White House on Thursday. Journalist Brian Karem was covering the spectacle when he was accosted by Sebastian Gorka. Karem joins us today to talk about what happened and fill us on in the role of the press in the Trump White House. Check out Brian's podcast at justaskthequestion.com Also, all eyes are on New Orleans this weekend as Tropical Storm Barry is expected to make landfall in [...]

8-26-15 Nicole Sandler Show – Shit Storm

This week marks the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina's devastation of New Orleans. Part time resident Harry Shearer joins in to tell what he discovered about the reasons why New Orleans flooded while making his film, "The Big Uneasy". Florida is in the crosshairs of Erika - so it's a perfect day for another dip into the Oy FloriDUH files with Deborah Newell Tornello. And just before we hit the air came the news of the shooting death of a TN news crew in VA live on the air. Shit storm, indeed.

Ferguson or Fallujah?

                                            Two images are shown above. One is courtesy of  Cpl Mike Escobar, taken in Fallujah, Iraq in 2005.  The other taken by reporter/photographer Danny Wicentowski of St. Louis' Riverfront Times two days ago in Ferguson, MO. Can you tell which is which? It's getting increasingly more difficult by the day to tell the difference. Americans' civil rights have eroded to the point where we have to question whether the First Amendment exists as anything more than a historical reference any longer. [...]

Hurricanes, Truthers and the RNC

Listen to this episode: {play}http://traffic.libsyn.com/radioornot/20120828_Nicole_Sandler_Show_-_Harry_Shearer_on_Isaac_and_New_Orleans.mp3 {/play} Podcast: Play in new window   Isaac has just been upgraded to hurricane status and by tonight will likely be barreling down on New Orleans, as New Orleanians already prepare to mark the 7th anniversary of Katrina tomorrow.  The US Army Corps of Engineers says the $14 Billion of taxpayer money was spent by shoring up the levies, and that New Orleans is safer now than it's ever been.. the problem is that that isn't saying very much. I reached out to Harry Shearer, best known for his comedic turns in Spinal Tap and The [...]

American Exceptionalism, Or Not

Listen to this episode: {play}http://traffic.libsyn.com/radioornot/20120703_Nicole_Sandler_Show_-_American_Exceptionalism_Or_Not.mp3 {/play} Podcast: Play in new window Aaron Sorkin's new show, The Newsroom, got off to a big start - challenging the myth that America is the greatest nation on the planet.  On this, the eve of Independence Day, we'll ponder, discuss and perhaps even argue that premise, beginning here:   On the show and in the reviews, Jeff Daniels' character's amazing speech is attributed to a "meltdown".  I say it's a rare show of honesty from a profession that, more and more, ignores the truth in favor of rhetoric. Today, on the Randi Rhodes Show, [...]

April Fools

It is April Fools Day and, to celebrate, I've invited some of the best political comics to join me on today's Randi Rhodes Show. But before we get to the line-up, allow me to share with you some of today's news items that should be April Fools pranks but, unfortunately, are not... The DUH is emphasized in Florida, as a democrat is chastised on the House floor for daring to utter the work "uterus." Mike Huckabee suggests that we'd be in a better place if only all Americans were forced, at gunpoint, to be indoctrinated by listening to some right [...]
