What a Friday! I was supposed to talk with Aldo Seoane on the show today. Unfortunately, when I called, we got voicemail. Aldo has been at the Standing Rock Sioux protests of the Dakota Access Pipeline where, on Thursday, all hell broke loose as the National Guard and militarized police showed up to violently remove the protesters from the land. Aldo sent this message on Friday night: Super sorry had law enforcement come in and had to focus on deescalation Obviously, some things are more important. We'll try to touch base with Aldo on Tuesday's show to get an update on what's [...]
After learning that Hillary Clinton chose Ken Salazar to head her transition team should she win the presidency, a question was asked on a listserv: Is Salazar a tell? To which Gaius Publius answered, "About the eighth in a row, yes." To me, that's a challenge! So I invited him on today's show to tell us the tells... He provided links too!

As you probably know by now, I'm fighting cancer. I'm nothing if not thorough, and the search for the right surgeon to cut this cancer out of me is frustrating at best. I've long known of the medicinal and healing properties of cannabis. A few years ago, I even narrated the TV program, Should Grandma Smoke Pot? My research brought me to PhoenixTears.ca, the official website of cannabis as a cure pioneer Rick Simpson, who famously began giving his home made "hemp oil" to friends and neighbors in Canada, with astounding results. Today, Rick is living in Croatia, still [...]
It was an exciting day at our studios today, as The Randi Rhodes Show officially returned to our radios, er, devices. We're still working out some of the bugs, but here we are, at the dawning of a new media era. Her show follows mine each afternoon, so just stay tuned! I hope you'll listen and support both shows because without you, we're just talking into thin air... As I was driving up to the studio today, FBI Director James Comey appeared at the podium to announce the results of their investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server [...]
It was a busy second full day in our new studios at my new time. And with the commute up to Delray Beach, and the engineer in house doing some final tweaking, it was a looong day. So sorry for getting the details of today's show posted so late. But better late than never! Brad Friedman, who's been covering election issues for over a decade at The Brad Blog and for the past year or so on his BradCast (heard here on The Nicole Sandler Show stream weekday evenings at 8pm Eastern/ 5 Pacific) joined me to give his journalistic [...]
