11-30-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Charles Lenchner on Growing Up in Israel and Being a Progressive Activist Here

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) Charles Lenchner has been one of the unsung heroes of the progressive movement for as long as I've been covering the movement. He was one of the original occupiers at Occupy Wall Street. He's a co-founder of People for Bernie. He's Executive Director of Organizing 2.0. He's part of Progressive Hub and Roots Action, and the list goes on and one. He's the epitome of the OUTSIDE part of the inside/outside strategy of activism. Yesterday I learned that Charles grew up in Israel, [...]

11-29-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Death to Gerry Mander with David Daley

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   With the 2022 midterm elections looming, we turn our attention to the state district maps. The maps are re-drawn every 10 years as new data from the census is released. Unfortunately, this year we're dealing with a very flawed census (sabotaged by the Trump administration) and Republican rule of a majority of the state legislatures who oversee the redistricting process. The first step to fighting back is understanding what we're dealing with. So today, David Daley returns to the show. He's written [...]

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) It was exactly 21 years ago today that I took my daughter Alison from the orphanage in Kazakhstan where she spent her first 18 months to start our new life together! Twenty-one years ago yesterday, which was Thanksgiving, a judge in a freezing cold courtroom there made it official, Alison was my daughter! We call Nov 23 and 24 our "Forever Days"... Welcome to our story! https://youtu.be/QLc7641ITsI  

11-23-21 The Nicole Sandler Show – Tuesday with GottaLaff & Brandi Buchman Too

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) It's Tuesday, and Laffy's here today. Plus our favorite court watcher will join in too. Brandi Buchman covered every trial going on for Courthouse News until a few weeks ago. Thankfully, she's back on the beat, this time for Daily Kos. She'll check in with us for the second half hour of the show. It's Thanksgiving Week, an important anniversary for me, the Charlottesville jury is in, and we have tons to talk about today. So join us for our pre-turkey day gratitude [...]

11-22-21 Nicole Sandler Show – The Democratic Party Silver Lining with Mike Lux

  Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   It's easy to be down on the Democrats right now. I'm constantly invoking that old adage about Democrats always "snatching defeat from the jaws of victory." I can't help it, it's just their track record. But I got a bit of an awakening in the form of an email on a list I subscribe to, filled with real progressives from a cross-section of backgrounds. The author of that message is Mike Lux, and I invited him to join us today to [...]

11-19-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Welcome to the VSA (Vigilante States of America) with Aaron Rupar

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   Thank goodness I already had Aaron Rupar booked for today's show, because I'm actually (temporarily) at a loss for words. The jury in Kenosha WI just found Kyle Rittenhouse not guilty on all counts. I don't recognize this country anymore. The second amendment has swallowed the first. We actually began the day on a good note, as the House finally passed the Build Back Better bill. Of course, it now goes back to the senate where Manchenema can kill anything good in [...]

11-18-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Thursdays with Howie Klein

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) It's another really strange day in Amerikkka. But it happens to be Thursday, so Howie Klein is here. I know we'll talk about Paul Gosar's censure, the insanity that is today's GOP, the trial-palooza in progress. And I'll certainly ask Howie about his latest article posted at DownWithTyranny.com: "Many Voters No Longer See The Democrats As Even The Lesser Evil". These are scary times, indeed. I promised I'd post the rest of Bernie Sanders' floor speech today on why he's voting against the [...]

11-17-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Jack Rice Answers Nicole’s Legal Questions

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   Jack Rice was going to join us yesterday, but we got our time zones crossed. So he's here today, and he'll answer all of my questions about the three cases we've been discussing -- Kyle Rittenhouse, the three men who killed Ahmaud Arbery, and the federal civil case against nine organizers of the 2017 Unite the Right Rally in Charlottesville, VA. Of course, I'll have a few questions about the January 6 prosecutions, Steve Bannon, and the penalty for refusing to comply [...]

11-16-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Our Divided Nation

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) There are three high-profile, racially charged, controversial cases being heard in courtrooms in Georgia, Virginia and Wisconsin. (OK, the Wisconsin case went to the jury this morning, but you get the idea.) All three illustrate the very tense divide splitting the country today. We'll review some of the more disturbing aspects and I'll ask my former Air America colleague and current defense attorney Jack Rice if any of this is normal. Do you have an opinion about any of these trials? The phone [...]
