4-29-22 Nicole Sandler Show – Government Sanctioned Extortion and the Awesome Danica Roem

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   I took the day off yesterday, not to rest up or have fun, but to fight with my health insurance extortionists. For as long as I can remember, I've called our for-profit system of heath noncare "government-sanctioned extortion," because that's the best description of this predatory system. Yesterday, I found out that due to a few elements aligning in just the right way, I'm no longer eligible for the help from the pharmaceutical company that manufactures the more obscenely expensive prescription drug [...]

4-27-22 Nicole Sandler Show – Today’s Holocaust Remembrance Day

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) I am a non-observant Jew. I'm actually an atheist who was raised in a secular Jewish home. My parents weren't religious and, with three daughters and no sons, we had no Bar Mitzvahs. Plus we were growing up at a time when Jewish girls weren't necessarily expected to be a Bat Mitzvah. So were weren't. But we did grow up knowing that we were of Jewish heritage. And although I don't know the stories of my ancestors, I do know that my father's [...]

4-26-22 Nicole Sandler Show – The Good and the Bad and the CPC with Rep Mark Pocan

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) There was a bit of shock, anger and disapproval among my circle of friends and political confidants last week when the Congressional Progressive Caucus officially endorsed Shontel Brown in the primary for OH-11 over progressive favorite Nina Turner. I voiced my concerns about problems with how the caucus is run, and commiserated with Howie Klein of DownWithTyranny/ Blue America PAC, (my standing guest every Thursday) about the problem with recruiting members of the New Dem Coalition to also join the Progressive Caucus. Much [...]

4-25-22 Nicole Sandler Show – Republicans Gonna Lie, Russians Gonna Fight

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   Many of us were riveted Friday, watching Marjorie Traitor Greene testify at a hearing in GA as she lied her way an unending stream of "I don't remembers" and I don't recalls" as she channeled other ethically challenged Republicans before her, like Alberto Gonzalez' famous 72 denials of memory. Today, John Bonifaz of Free Speech for People, the group representing the plaintiffs in this and other cases challenging members of Congress who participated in the 1-6 insurrection, returns for a recap of [...]

4-22-22 Nicole Sandler Show – The Wrong Kind of Green on Earth Day

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) Today is Earth Day. To mark the occasion, I'll speak with author Eugene Linden about his new book, Fire & Flood: A People's History of Climate Change 1979-Present. If we had enacted any of the legislation and protections proposed in the Green New Deal, we'd be in a much better position regarding the fate of the planet than we're currently experiencing. Unfortunately, today we've heard too much (but nothing of substance) from the other kind of green... Marjorie Taylor Green to be precise. [...]

4-21-22 Nicole Sandler Show – Thursdays with Howie Klein

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) I'm back after a day off hanging with my kid. And what a strange day it is. Florida became even more FloriDUH today with the actions of the governor, whose nickname I've now changed. It was MoRon DeathSentence. Now it's just Ron deSatan, because he is truly evil. I'll explain his latest dictatorial and racist move, with an assist from State Rep Angie Nixon. Then we'll [...]

4-19-22 Nicole Sandler Show – Every Other Tuesday with GottaLaff

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   It's that other Tuesday, so Laffy's here. We've got lots to talk about, starting with the idiotic dic -tator MoRon DeathSentence showing just how low he can go. Then there's the "not qualified" by the ABA lawyer who TFG gave a lifetime appointment to as a federal judge based (say it with me) in Florida who single handedly killed the mask mandate for transportation. You can see how the day is going. That said, I do have one bit of encouraging news [...]

4-18-22 Nicole Sandler Show – The World’s Gone Mad and Hong Kong’s Calling

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   It's the Monday after a big holiday weekend and it feels like it should be a holiday, but it isn't. The news is awful, as it has been for the recent past, and there's no end in sight to the ugliness. We're seeing it in Ukraine as Russian bombs and soldiers reign their terror down on people who are no threat to them. And Putin's style of strong man governing seems to be spreading. Today, we'll turn the spotlight on China who's [...]

4-15-22 Nicole Sandler Show – Marcy Wheeler on Prosecuting the Insurrectionists

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) We end this week with another visit from Marcy Wheeler. If you're one of the few who don't know, Marcy Wheeler has been doing an amazing job keeping track of all of the Jan 6 insurrectionists at emptywheel.net -- the plea deals, the trials, the investigations. She also is somehow able to stay abreast of the 1-6 Committee's work, the DOJ's work, the SDNY investigation, etc. You get the idea. Today, I pick Marcy's brain about all of this. She answers my questions [...]

4-14-22 Nicole Sandler Show – Thursdays with Howie Klein; CPC We’ve Got a Problem

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) It's Thursday, so Howie Klein is here. Today, I know exactly what we'll be talking about. There are a few reports out today about the Congressional Progressive Caucus endorsing an actual New Dem (Shontel Brown) over a true progressive (Nina Turner). An article about it from The Lever (David Sirota's new outlet) blamed Pramila Jayapal; Howie says she's not the one to blame... I say there's plenty of blame to go around! We'll start there... But first, there's other news to tell you [...]
