8-13-19 Nicole Sandler Show – Tuesdays with @GottaLaff (and Bobby Tuna Too)

 We begin our week at the Nicole Sandler Show on Tuesdays, so we have a lot of catching up to do with the news that broke over the weekend- most notably the death, presumably by suicide, of the most notorious criminal in US custody today. We'll begin today with a visit from my friend Robert Platshorn, who served 30 years in federal prison for smuggling marijuana in the 70s, about the idea of committing suicide while in federal custody. Check out The Silver Tour, and the TV show, "Should Grandma Smoke Pot?" Then, since it's Tuesday, GottaLaff returns to [...]

3-9-17 Nicole Sandler Show- Pot ‘n’ Politics

It's a busy day. I was out yesterday for the Women's Strike! I originally had my old friend Robert Platshorn scheduled to join me then, but moved him to today so I could participate yesterday. So I apologize for the rushed nature of our interview. But I wanted to get him on in time for anyone interested in going to the next Meet the Experts symposium to have time to plan to get to Atlantic City for the event happening March 18-19. Robert Platshorn was busted for smuggling marijuana into South Florida back in 1978 and, in 1980 was sentenced to [...]

8-12-16 Nicole Sandler Show – Politics, Pot and Publix

  I'm back. For now... Since I've been out for the past few Thursdays, we've been missing Harvey J. Kaye. So he joined me today for a quick visit. In hour two, Marijuana Policy Project's Director of Federal Policies, Robert Capecchi, told us about the DEA's decision to keep marijuana as a schedule 1 substance. The Silver Tour's Robert Platshorn joined in to tell us about tomorrow's one day picket of Publix, whose founder's heir donated $800 million to the campaign to defeat Amendment 2, the medical marijuana amendment on the ballot Nov 8. If you're in South Florida, come [...]

Today, Nicole looks at things that are FUBAR in our world. Marijuana activist Robert Platshorn served over 3 decades imprisoned for pot. And Amy Ziering tells about her latest film, The Hunting Ground, about the rape epidemic on college campuses.

Friday Weed & Music

Because it's Friday, Nicole focuses on some of the better things in life. Medical Marijuana activist Robert Platshorn joins in with details of the upcoming Rally in Tally and the latest in pot news. We celebrate Joan Baez' 74th birthday with a Flashback Friday session with Baez and Dar Williams from 1996 at a Starbucks in Los Angeles!

Arrr – It’s Friday!

It's Talk Like a Pirate Day, the start of the People's Climate March & Mobilization, Flashback Friday, and Congress is in recess again. Nicole discusses it all, along with the rest of the news.

Almost Blue

  Today, we begin a new weekly segment on the show: The Steve Israel Hour, sponsored by Little Debbie   , featuring Howie Klein of the Blue America PAC and Down With Tyranny. In case you didn't know about Blue America, it's a PAC run by Howie, Digby, and Crooks & Liars' John Amato, for the purpose of vetting and identifying the best progressive candidates out there, mostly in Congressional races, and help raise money for them. The sad fact is the today's Democratic Party - the DNC, led by Debbie Wasserman Schultz, and the DCCC, chaired by Steve Israel, tend [...]
