5-5-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Facebook, Trump and our Broken Media

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   Facebook's Oversight Board today announced that Donald Trump's suspension will continue for the next six months, after which time, we do this again, perhaps? Tim Karr of FreePress.net joins us at the top of the show to help unpack what this means. While we have Tim, we'll get an update on other issues we used to cover extensively like net neutrality and the FCC. Needless to say, there's a lot to talk about! I did share a few funnies from our friends [...]

5-4-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Gimme Some Truth, FOIA Style with Jason Leopold

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   Jason Leopold was dubbed “the FOIA Terrorist” by the Bush Administration, and the name stuck because Jason appropriated it! He utilizes FOIA better and more effectively than anyone else in the news business. I had scheduled Jason to join us today because it had been a while since we’d spoken, and was pleasantly surprised to awaken this morning to a new scoop from Jason and his FOIA prowess. Today is May 4 -- as in May the Fourth... and Shirley Serban made [...]

5-3-21 Nicole Sandler Show – WTFloriDUH and lots more

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   Florida's 2021 legislative session ended this weekend, and it's worse than you could have imagined. I'll speak with the best political reporter in the state, Jim DeFede, about the latest right wing assault on our state. There are a few other stories we'll hit on today too, like Trump's gaslighting of America, inconceivably, continuing. And May 3 is a special day. I'll explain that too. I promised I'd link to Jim DeFede's reporting on Centner Academy. Here you go:   I did [...]

4-30-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Progressive Professor Rates Potus Performance with Harvey J Kaye

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)     I guess I'm grading on a curve after the former guy. Can you really blame me? Today, I'm joined by Harvey J. Kaye, professor emeritus of Democracy and Justice Studies at UW Green Bay. Perhaps I've been giving Biden some extra benefit of the doubt after the traumatic four years we barely survived, but I am a bit distressed that so many of my progressive pals are using the progressive purity test to measure how he's doing. Anyway, Harvey J. Kaye [...]

4-29-21 Nicole Sandler Show – About Last Night’s Speech and India Too with Howie Klein

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)     President Biden last night gave his first speech to a joint session of Congress, though it was not your average SOTU (or first year facsimile of one). I thought it was an excellent speech, though I have a feeling Howie Klein will disagree with me. I think we'll have to agree to disagree now, though I'll try to get Howie to see the light! That didn't work well, so we talked about what's happening in India. And, oh yeah, my computers [...]

4-28-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Ratfucking Then & Now with Don Siegelman

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   Today, Rudy Giuliani's NYC apartment and office building were raided by the feds who seized a few electronic device. Trump employed the "ratfucking talents" of characters from Rudy Giuliani to Roger Stone. This is nothing new. Back in the late 90s early 2000s, Karl Rove was the ratfucker in chief. Today, one of Rove's biggest victims, former AL Governor Don Siegelman returns to the show. His book, Stealing Our Democracy, is now out as an audiobook, read by Gov. Siegelman himself. We [...]

4-27-21 Nicole Sandler Show – It’s Not Easy Being Green with Desi Doyen

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)     President Biden last week convened 40 world leaders for a virtual climate change conference that, by most accounts, went very well and showed the world that the US is back. Desi Doyen of the Green News Report & BradBlog/BradCast watched the whole thing. She filled us in on what we missed, and sounded an optimistic note about where we're headed. I did play a funny... this from Chris Mann https://youtu.be/0ZvkZ14_HA0 It's showtime! (5ET/2PT). The @greennewsreport's #DesiDoyen takes us greener with info [...]

4-26-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Getting it Correct with Dave Johnson

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)     Today begins a new week that will mark President Joe Biden's 100th day in office, and his first address to a joint session of Congress. I'll take stock of where we are at this point with blogger Dave Johnson, from a long line of Johnsons who are usually right, er, correct. Today, I began the show once again lamenting the sad state of police in this country who seem bound and determined to flex their power muscles, kill Black people and [...]

4-23-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Aloha Friday with Sen Mazie Hirono

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)     We reached another Friday after another exhausting week. This week included Derek Chauvin's guilty verdicts plus two more black people shot and killed by police...or was it three? It's hard to keep track these days. I have a bunch of news stories to share that otherwise might have fallen through the cracks. And my guest today is Senator Mazie Hirono of Hawaii, who scored a big win yesterday with her Covid Hate Crimes bill overwhelmingly passing in the senate. She also [...]
