Welcome to 2023! With the new year, comes a new home for The Nicole Sandler Show podcast.

Hopefully, you won’t notice much difference. The show still airs live weekday afternoons from 5-6pm ET. After that, it’s available as a podcast. You can subscribe wherever you get your podcasts, or download any episode directly from this page, or from each day’s show post.

The only difference is that if you’re looking through the blog for an older show, the audio/podcast embed may not work. But you can go to the new podcast page and search for the date of the show you want to hear, and it should come right up for you.

As with anything new, it’ll likely take a little while to iron out any problems. So please let me know about any bugs you encounter, and do tell me what’s working well too!

My show is not behind a paywall, though we do depend on your donations to keep it going.

Thanks for checking us out!

6-2-23 Nicole Sandler Show – Happy Pride Month

    https://redirect.zencastr.com/r/episode/647cf20b5701e46fcdb56926/audio-files/5e0cc41aa9798f001400ff98/f8eca19d-cb77-4945-90a2-96443db75660.mp3   It's June -- Pride month. Today we celebrate our gay, lesbian, bi, trans, non-binary and all people and their rights to be whomever they are, to find their unique voices and march to their own tunes and drummers. As an older person (did I just say that?), I've lived through the changes - both attitudinal and in real life. I've learned to be quiet long enough to listen to the people around me who are going through their own self-awareness journeys, realizing that everyone should be afforded the dignity to live their lives as best [...]

6-1-23 Nicole Sandler Show – Thursdays with Howie Klein

https://media.zencastr.com/audio-files/5e0cc41aa9798f001400ff98/1188c516-70ec-4a96-a019-61a1fa83085a.mp3 The House passed the Biden-McCarthy debt ceiling deal last night with more Democratic than Republican votes. Was it a great deal? No. But did the Dems come out ahead of the Republicans? Without a doubt. Well, that's my take. As for what Howie Klein thinks? We'll find out today. You never know with Howie. One of the things I'll ask him about today is his post at Down With Tyranny in which he basically says that the three members of Congress vying to replace Dianne Feinstein in the Senate -- Katie Porter, Barbara Lee and Adam Schiff -- [...]

5-31-23 Nicole Sandler Show – David Dayen and the Debt Ceiling Dance Deja Vu

  https://redirect.zencastr.com/r/episode/6477d83155545819566d427b/audio-files/5e0cc41aa9798f001400ff98/e8b7ac55-e4f9-42c5-9f2c-a583dbe04d76.mp3     The House today is voting on the Biden-McCarthy deal to raise the ridiculous debt ceiling. David Dayen of The American Prospect returns to the show today to bring us up to date on what's happening and how we got here. I call it a deja vu because we've had this conversation before -- 12 years ago, in fact. On July28, 2011, we talked on this program about President Obama's deal with a Republican-led Congress, the first time the GOP weaponized this ridiculous provision that allows the good faith and credit of the US to be threatened. [...]

5-30-23 Nicole Sandler Show – A Post-Holiday Weekend Update with Will Bunch

  https://media.zencastr.com/audio-files/5e0cc41aa9798f001400ff98/d7ff0978-a57a-4938-8416-177f15d7f52e.mp3   The first day back after a long holiday weekend is always tough. But here we are. News was made while America was using the day set aside to remember those lost in battle to buy mattresses and gorge themselves on food and beer. OK, I'm over-generalizing, but we really do need to step back and assess our priorities from time to time. And this would be a good time to do that. With the debt ceiling negotiations ongoing as the holiday weekend began, I was taken aback that the so-called cable news channel MSNBC opted to run [...]

5-26-23 Nicole Sandler Show – Unofficial Floriduh Summer Kickoff with Brit Somers

  https://media.zencastr.com/audio-files/5e0cc41aa9798f001400ff98/c79a1ea9-29ab-46e5-9a0e-bb2265176997.mp3   Monday is Memorial Day, the unofficial start of summer. So today, I'm joined by my friend Boca Britany Somers for a special Trans Summer Kick Off in honor of the fascist Florida man who had the gall to announce his candidacy for president this week... We'll have a gay old time! An extra bonus- at one point during the show, I mentioned that Tina Turner had appeared on the Mark & Brian Show at KLOS in Los Angeles in April 1993. I referenced it with Boca due to a Silence of the Lambs reference, and promised I'd [...]

5-25-23 Nicole Sandler Show – Tales of two Governors in Opposite World

  https://redirect.zencastr.com/r/episode/646fec24eb3df094613003e9/audio-files/5e0cc41aa9798f001400ff98/2e65383f-6152-4070-875f-c626c99a7cd9.mp3     Sometimes life just doesn't make sense. Although today's show isn't really about two governors, it does involve two (actually three) southern governors whose actions were not reflected in the paths their lives and careers have taken. But, in all fairness, one of the stories hasn't yet reached a conclusion, so the odds are pretty good that fairness will win. But we'll see. I'm talking -in the second instance- of Florida's sad excuse for a governor. Ron DeSantis, who signed the bill into law just yesterday that will allow him to run for president without resigning as [...]

5-24-23 Nicole Sandler Show – Friends Don’t Let Friends Vote for Fascists

https://media.zencastr.com/audio-files/5e0cc41aa9798f001400ff98/7d663f2c-fe9e-49a2-8c9a-78d563408352.mp3 Today's the big day! The Fascist Florida Man Ronald DeSantis is officially declaring his candidacy for president in 2024 this evening. We knew it was coming; we just didn't know where, exactly when or how he'd do it, but now we do, and it's par for the ridiculous course that is this authoritarian Trump-in-training. You could almost hear the jeering and laughs accompanying the announcement that the big campaign kick-off event would take place on Twitter with one of the few people on the planet who's as big a laughingstock as is the FFM (fascist Florida man) and [...]

5-23-23 Nicole Sandler Show – STOP HIM BEFORE HE RUNS!

    https://media.zencastr.com/audio-files/5e0cc41aa9798f001400ff98/b85897b8-a8ac-403b-a8e5-98ca3999cb92.mp3   The word on the street is the DeSantis will make it official tomorrow, declaring his candidacy for president on 2024 with an announcement live on Twitter Spaces with Elon Musk. Twitter Spaces? That's like a phone party line, right? Either way, I guess I'll miss it. But I continue doing my civic duty as someone who still (unfortunately) lives in Florida to warn the rest of the nation (and planet) about the sorry, sniveling, authoritarian, dictator wannabe and keep him as far away from the White House as is possible. Today on the show, I'll share [...]

5-22-23 Nicole Sandler Show – FloriDON’T

    https://media.zencastr.com/audio-files/5e0cc41aa9798f001400ff98/38161cd0-edf7-400c-a3ba-b2e895c34b35.mp3     The news is that Ron DeSantis is going to declare his candidacy for the presidency this week, as ridiculous as that is.... So I figured we'd spend the better part of this week enlightening the rest of the world about what we've known about moRon DeathSentence since he was elected.... and no one knew anything about him before he became governor, as he was just some snivelly back bench nobody congressman. Strap in, and feel free to call in (954-889-6410) with any questions about the fascist Florida man. If I don't know the answer, I'll [...]
