Emptywheel Friday (with a sick day assist from LOLGOP & Spocko – 6-14-24

How the World Ran Out of Everything with Peter S Goodman on the Nicole Sandler Show – 6-11-24

     Apologies for my absence yesterday. Husband somehow contracted Covid (first time in our home) and we spent the better part of the day at the Emergency Room. I'm doing my best to keep the virus at bay, but that hasn't stopped me from feeling lousy. Thankfully the tests keep reading negative! Good thing that today's show was pretty much in the can. I got to record a conversation with NY Times economic journalist and author Peter S Goodman last week in advance of today's release of his new book, HOW THE WORLD RAN OUT OF EVERYTHING. I'll [...]

Emptywheel Fridays on the Nicole Sandler Show – 6-7-24

   The amazing Marcy Wheeler, who keeps us informed about the news we need to know at emptywheel.net, joins us every Friday to talk about what happened that week. As she does today. I must apologize to Marcy and everyone watching this. I started a new medication last night to deal with my RLS, and it completely knocked me out. I awoke in a fog this morning, somehow walked and fed Jaxson and made it in to the studio to record with Marcy. When we finished taping, I went back to sleep for a bit, but am still as [...]

Thursdays with Howie Klein and Candidate Conor O’Callaghan on the Nicole Sandler Show – 6-6-24

 Whoo boy, another crazy busy day in our world... Somehow it's fitting that today marks the 80th anniversary of D-Day. And since I took the day off yesterday, there's so much to cover before Howie Klein joins in at the bottom of the hour, today joined by Conor O'Callaghan, who's running for Congress in AZ 01. Please check out his website and read his stance on the issues. If you like what you see (and who wouldn't?) and can afford to chip in to help, you can do so at his website (conorforaz.com) or at the Blue America site. [...]

Stories Are Weapons and We Must Fight Back on the Nicole Sandler Show – 6-4-24

       You know the old adage, 'Sticks & stones my break my bones but words can never hurt me.' As I often say, the scientific term for that is "bullshit." Words can and do immense damage. And as today's guest Annalee Newitz explains in her new book (out today) STORIES ARE WEAPONS: PSYCHOLOGICAL WARFARE AND THE AMERICAN MIND, this really is war. They open the preface to the book writing, "It's hard to write about a war while it's raging. Especially when there are no craters in the ground, no missiles streaking overhead - just words and [...]

Another F$*king Monday with your F$*king News on the Nicole Sandler Show – 6-3-24

     Like death and taxes, there's no stopping Mondays. They come every week whether we want them or not. But there's a silver lining... we get The Fucking News every Monday from Jonathan Larsen who writes The Fucking News  every fucking day... Then again, there are some weeks when there's good fucking news, like Trump being convicted and like Mexico electing its first woman President -- a Jewish woman at that! But don't fear newsfuckers, there's some fucked-up news to talk about too... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sqJohsRWRuw  

Emptywheel Fridays (The Trump is Guilty Edition) on the Nicole Sandler Show – 5-31-24

     The verdicts are in! Donald J Trump found guilty on all 34 counts, but you already knew that. However, today is Friday, so Marcy Wheeler of emptywheel.net is here. We discuss the verdicts, the hypocrisy and worse from the right, the fact that they're out for revenge, and that Hunter Biden's gun charges trial gets underway on Monday. Never a dull moment! BTW, here's the link to the Slate article from from former producer of The Apprentice, Bill Pruitt, as the NDA he signed 20 years ago has finally expired!   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YmKnxxNsO6Q

Thursdays with Howie Klein and TRUMP GUILTY ON ALL 34 COUNTS on the Nicole Sandler Show – 5-30-24

     Literally ten minutes before hitting the air, the word came down that the jury had reached a verdict in the first criminal trial of the former guy.  Needless to say, everything I had planned for today's show was thrown out the window.... but Howie Klein still joined me to help celebrate the news that our justice system works. We were going as history was made today. Of course, the fight isn't over. Trump is playing the victim, trotting out his "it was rigged" tourettes. He doesn't know how to say anything else. Tomorrow, Marcy Wheeler will be [...]
