5-17-17 Nicole Sandler Show – Jason Leopold, Will Bunch & More Shoes Dropping

The news hits just keep on coming and the proverbial "other shoe" keeps dropping. Today, I try to cover as many bases as I can in an hour with today's guests: BuzzFeed News' Jason Leopold and Philadelphia Daily News' Will Bunch

What I will not write about today

Sometimes I get so frustrated and/or disheartened and/or annoyed by some of the news stories of the day that I can’t bring myself to write about them. Here are a few recent reports that made my blood pressure hit the roof. I am avoiding delving into them at length out of concern for my physical and mental health. Cattle pens, threats of violence, blacklists, total lack of access. Time for journalists to say: Enough is enough! Transparency by and access to presidential candidates? Respect for the First Amendment? What could my pal Will Bunch be thinking? The actual author of [...]

Rev. Barry Lynn returns to the show with a new collection of his articles, speeches and testimony dealing with the separation of church and state. Great timing after John Oliver's epic takedown of televangelists on Sunday. Plus, journalist Will Bunch on the Trump phenom and more!

4-30-15 Nicole Sandler Show – Finally! A Candidate I Can Believe In!

Today, Bernie Sanders officially announces his run for the presidency! Nicole discusses that bit of good news along with the rest of the news of the day. The Guardian's Steven Thrasher went from the steps of the Supreme Court to the streets of Baltimore on Tuesday, and tells us about that day. And the Philadelphia Daily News' Will Bunch weighs in on the Day the News Died.

A Jingoistic Fourth of July

  This week, we saw a bunch of racist assholes protesters blocking the roadway leading to an immigration processing office, holding up three buses with mostly women and children with hateful, misspelled signs while alternating between shouts of "USA, USA" with "Go Home" and "Get Out." Those Amerikkans blocked three buses with mostly children, all in the name of patriotism? Oh yeah, American exceptionalism at its best, huh? Sorry, but after witnessing scenes like this play out and after the embarrassment of riches from our Supreme Court this week, I'm ashamed to be an American. This is not the country envisioned [...]

Anyone Else Missing an Hour? Schools? Media Responsibility?

Damn Daylight Savings Time.  Don't get me wrong. I like the fact that it stays light out later; I just hate losing an hour of valuable sleep time this time every year.  We should really pick a time and stick with it.  Unbelievably, Arizona does something right! Anyway, barring my tired status this morning, it was a busy show. I filled listeners in on our Saturday evening in the emergency room.  Alison had a softball injury that turned out to be a sprained index finger.  I erred on the side of caution, and will likely get  some interesting programming out [...]

Watergate & Other Crimes

Listen to this episode: {play}http://traffic.libsyn.com/radioornot/20120620_Nicole_Sandler_Show.mp3 {/play} Podcast: Play in new window The break-in at DNC headquarters at the Watergate Hotel happened 40 years ago this week, kicking off lots of sentimental reminiscing about the good ole days when Republicans only bugged their opponents' offices but still sort of cared about the well-being of the nation. Sort of. This morning, I spoke with The Philadelphia Daily News' Will Bunch about his piece "Nixon Exceptionalism: What Woodward and Bernstein Got Wrong About Watergate," which of course led to a bigger discussion about how things have changed on most fronts in the past [...]
