5-21-21 Nicole Sandler Show – It Would Have Been an Interesting Conversation

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   I spent the better part of the show setting up for today's guest who proceeded to stand me up. I guess we had a miscommunication regarding the time. Or maybe he was punking me. Either way, it was a somewhat entertaining and slightly surreal hour. This is live radio, so this is what happened.... This is what I had planned: The odds are against the Democrats in the upcoming 2022 midterm elections. It's the first midterm after a new party took the [...]

5-20-21 Nicole Sandler Day Off Show Featuring Wesley Clark and Randy Newman!

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)     I took today off to celebrate my husband's birthday with our first night out since last March! Instead of just running an old show, I put something together for you today. We start with the news, such as it was this morning. Then, following up on our conversation about war yesterday, I pulled out my last (and final) interview with General Wesley Clark. It was June of 2014, and ISIS was gaining ground in Iraq, and it looked like we were [...]

5-19-21 Nicole Sandler Show – What Is It Good For? Absolutely Nothing!

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)     Today, we're talking about war. As the song says, it's good for absolutely nothing, yet we seem to be in a never-ending series of wars. All eyes today are on Israel and the Palestinians in Gaza, and the situation seems to be getting worse. I'll check in with Ron Skolnik, an American-Israeli writer and communications consultant for Partners for Progressive Israel (and an elementary school classmate of mine) for some perspective on what's going on over there. Then we'll turn to [...]

5-18-21 Nicole Sandler Show -Gates-Gaetz-Gate and Other Appalling People

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)     Terrible people are dominating today's news. Matt Gaetz's literal partner in crime is spilling his beans, Marjorie Taylor Greene takes five minutes on the floor, and Bill Gates' halo has lost its shine. Bill Gates is the subject of a scorn on multiple fronts right now. Journalist Tim Schwab writes about his role in perpetuating vaccine apartheid for The Nation, and he's our guest on today's show. I played just one quick funny regarding Matt Gaetz from our friend Bruce W. [...]

5-17-21 Nicole Sandler Show – I Got Them Old Monday Blues Again

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)     Some of those old Monday blues are sneaking back in. I had been feeling so much better since the former guy was evicted from the White House, and had been almost tumescent that Joe Biden was doing so much better than I had expected, so I was bound to feel a big letdown, but this is ridiculous. From the bombing and imminent war between Israel and the Palestinians in Gaza, to Biden's latest hires and a few other pesky problem, I'm [...]

5-14-21 Nicole Sandler Show – It’s All Just a Little Bit of History Repeating and Overtime Too

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)     There is a reason I speak with historians fairly regularly on this program; history tends to repeat itself. We must learn from those lessons. Today, after a look at the latest news, I'll talk with Daniel James Brown, author of  Facing the Mountain: A True Story of Japanese American Heroes in WWII. With the rise of violence against Asian Americans in the Trump/Covid era, it's more important than ever to learn the history and the stories of people like the four [...]

5-13-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Thursdays with Howie Klein- If Vaccinated, No Mask Required

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)     The CDC finally said that fully vaccinated people no longer need to wear masks indoors or out! The problem is that those miscreant vaccine deniers will just claim they had been vaccinated. So, when out and about, I'll keep my mask on, thankyouverymuch. Ugh. The Republicans and their sympathizers seem to have a bad case of gaslighting, obviously caught from the former administration. Many on the House Oversight Committee showed off their talents in yesterday's hearing on the Jan 6 attack [...]

5-12-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Covid a Year Later and Nice Insurrection You Got There

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)     Today, I welcome John M. Barry back the show a year after he first appeared. He's the author of The Great Influenza: The Story of the Deadliest Pandemic in History, about the 1918 Spanish Flu. He wrote an op-ed for the Washington Post on Monday, "The 1918 pandemic tells us that we can’t celebrate the end of covid yet." Today, we get an update from him on how our COVID pandemic compares to the 1918 Spanish flu. But we begin the [...]

5-11-21 Nicole Sandler Show- Democracy Doomed with David Atkins

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)     I've been trying to stay optimistic now that the former guy is gone from the White House, and the current occupant is exceeding my expectations, but reality keeps getting in the way. More accurately, Republicans are in the way. Today's Republicans have no morality, no sense of fairness. It seems their mantra was well-learned from the orange one himself: lie, cheat and steal... win, no matter the cost. The Senate Rules Committee is marking up the For the People Act today, [...]
