On 9/11, Chicago Strike, Religion & Politics and More

Listen to this episode: {play}http://traffic.libsyn.com/radioornot/20120911_Nicole_Sandler_Show.mp3 {/play} Podcast: Play in new window   The picture mentions 9-11 truth, but we're not talking about what brought down the towers (and building 7) today. Instead, we're talking about what George W. Bush and his neoconservative foreign policy advisers knew thanks to their daily intelligence briefings. Although most of the pre-911 Presidential Daily Briefings that shed some light on that topic, author Kurt Eichenwald - a contributing editor at Vanity Fair, former NY Times reporter, and author of the new book, 500 Days: Secrets and Lies in the Terror Wars - penned an OpEd for the New York [...]

Murders, Mormons & Mars

Once again, we began the show with Cheryl Wheeler's "If It Were Up to Me," as another sick individual with a gun opened fire on a group of innocent people. This time, the shooter had ties to white supremacist and Neo-Nazi groups, and he killed six people at a Sikh temple.  He was [...]

Bad Religion or Mormon’s Little Secrets

Listen to this episode: {play}http://traffic.libsyn.com/radioornot/20120802_Nicole_Sandler_Show_-_Mormonism.mp3 {/play} Podcast: Play in new window   Let me start by saying that I think all organized religion has more in common with Greek mythology than with fact.  The best debunking of modern religions comes with a lot of laughs from Bill Maher in his documentary Religulous.  I recommend watching the whole thing, but here's a taste:   A few days ago, I got an email from a listener who wanted to be sure I was aware of some of the creepier aspects of the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, more commonly [...]

You Say Cheney, I Say Warmonger

I love that Chris Matthews is the expert on the pronunciation of Darth Cheney's name.  I have my own take on it that you'll have to hear for yourself. No, I didn't have an "exclusive" interview with Dick Cheney as every TV news show claimed to. Instead, I spoke with Adam Christing, the ironically named producer/writer of the new film, A Mormon President: Joseph Smith and the Mormon Quest for the White House. I also checked in with Bill McKibben, who's still outside the White House protesting the proposed Keystone XL pipeline. Unfortunately, the State Department just released its Final [...]

Health Care and Mormons and Hate Speak, Oh My!

**Podcast audio fixed.  Somehow, Tuesday's show was originally re-posted. Click on the player to hear the correct audio.  Sorry for the inconvenience!  NS** Today, I watched President Obama's final speech on Health Care Reform. And he said nothing. Nothing new, anyway. It was the same old shit. Same old pandering to the right. Same old sidestepping the public option -- the one fix that could get much of his former base back on board, but that, for reasons still completely obscured, he ignores. The same old Obama, trying to please everyone and, by doing that, pleasing no one... except the [...]
