Nicole Sandler with Congressman Alan Grayson at the Sexy Liberal Comedy Tour in Ft. Lauderdale, December 2011 Our first Great American Hero today is Congressman Alan Grayson. Although he represents Florida's 9th District, he really represents us all. Even during these times of the greatest gridlock in DC, Congressman Grayson - a member of the minority party in the House - has written more legislation and had more amendments passed than any other member, for two years running. He joined me on the show this morning to talk about some of the work he's done since we last spoke. [...]
I haven't been doing any shows on Fridays for the past few years. But obviously, things are rapidly changing in the progressive talk radio field. Randi Rhodes' show ended last Friday, and today, Ed Schultz will end his radio show. Over the past few months, the downloads, views and listens to the podcast, live show and video archives have been steadily growing. I decided a while ago that if you come, I'll build it! So today, I decided to test the waters with a few interviews I'd already recorded but hadn't yet had the time to play on this [...]
If you put three women together on a radio show with no rules and no limitations other than to talk like real women do, what would you call it? I actually liked Laffy's suggestion of The Vagina Dialogues, but Amy Simon didn't. But the three of us, GottaLaff of The Political Carnival, Amy Simon of She's History, and I spent most of the second hour of the show simply shooting the shit about life. We'll try it again, though I don't know what it'll be called. And we'll invite other women into the mix too. The idea to do something [...]
Yep, it's another double header today, so not much time for a lengthy post... you'll just have to listen:) This afternoon on the Randi Rhodes Show, I'll speak with the Amazing Kreskin (yes, he's still alive), Forbes' token liberal Rick Ungar, and Howie Klein will update us on how the solar panels on his house are working out for him, plus lots more.... On my show this morning, we talk about yesterday's Forward on Climate rally in DC, strange coincidences, and a lot more. Of course since it's Monday, Nicole Belle joins in for "Fools on the Hill". She brought [...]
Nicole recaps last night's State of the Union Address with pundit Sally Kohn and Crooks & Liars' John Amato. Plus She's History's Amy Simon with some fabulous female facts
Just how much constitutes a living wage? Minimum wage certainly doesn't cut it. Since 2009, the federal minimum wage has stood at $7.25 an hour - though some states pay less and a few paid more. But if you were paid the federal minimum and were lucky enough to get 40 hours of work a week, you'd gross a whopping $290 for that week's work... and if you never took a day off, you'd gross an annual income of $15,080. For a family of two, that qualifies you as earning less than the federal poverty limit. In a nutshell, corporations [...]
