I’ve been remiss in updating this page, but fixing that now to point you to our 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!

At An Existential Crossroads in our Political & Civic Lives on the Nicole Sandler Show – 5-28-24

     The title of today's episode is taken from a line in a commencement address delivered this weekend by filmmaker/historian Ken Burns to the graduating class at Brandeis University. I heard enough plaudits about it to seek it out, and I must agree. In fact, so much that I'm going to share the final 8 1/2 minutes or so of it on today's show. I'll also post the entire thing on my website where I'll post today's show (nicolesandler.com/5-28-24) so you can easily find it to watch the rest of it. With the spectacle of the first criminal [...]

A Musical Memorial Day Monday on the Nicole Sandler Show – 5-27-24

  Memorial Day is a federal holiday in the US designated as such to honor and mourn US military personnel who died while serving. These days, most people just think of it as a three-day weekend, the unofficial start of summer, a day for bbq, beach and beer. And mattress sales. I thought it was a good day to honor the intent of the day with some music that fits the occasion. So enjoy...

Emptywheel Fridays on the Nicole Sandler Show 5-24-24

     We made it through another eventful week in the most insane decade of my life, and I'm old. We celebrate Fridays because the weekend is here, but not before we recap some of the news made during the week that's ending. It seems that each week these days is more outlandish than the one before, and this one is no different. Among the news and stories that Emptywheel.net's Marcy Wheeler and I discussed today are the complete mess that is the Supreme Court. ProPublica this week confirmed and shared photographic proof that Justice Samuel Alito flew a [...]

Thursdays with Howie Klein on the Nicole Sandler Show – 5-23-24

 Thursday (or as I prefer, Friday Eve) has arrived. That means a visit with Howie Klein of Down With Tyranny to talk politics. One subject that shouldn't fall under the category of "politics" is "The Supreme Court." But norms are dead, and we're now living in opposite world. So all bets are off.... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yVLdjElQb7w

We Must Stop the MAGAt March Toward A Fascist USA on the Nicole Sandler Show – 5-22-24

 I've been doing my best to have guests on this program who can explain the threats we are facing from fascism by way of Trump and his MAGAt sycophants. We've exposed "Project 2025" and urge you to learn as much as possible about what they are planning should they retake power. It really is urgent -- all hands on deck kind of urgent. Today we'll give you the knowledge you need to push back on the mis and disinformation, lies and propaganda they're pushing. There's a reason TFG said "I love the poorly educated!". They're easier to manipulate. [...]

How Project 2025 Will Ruin Your Life with Andra Watkins on the Nicole Sandler Show – 5-21-24

     We've covered Project 2025 before, and we'll continue sounding the alarm until and after TFG is defeated and this MAGAt brand of Republicans are extinct. They are that dangerous, and that's not hyperbole, it's fact. They will, if given the opportunity, destroy democracy. Today, I'm joined by a NY Times best-selling author, Andra Watkins.. She was raised in a Christian Nationalist family, the people who espouse this type of fascism, and was lucky enough to escape it and share what she knows with the rest of us. She started a substack at Project2025isTheocracy.substack.com  to educate and inform [...]

Emptywheel Fridays on the Nicole Sandler Show – 5-17-24

Today's show will go live at 5pm ET/2PT (I'm out on a musical weekend... see you Monday!)   https://open.spotify.com/episode/6Ju19ftMJcWiVurqm0w3OL   Every Friday I'm joined by the brilliant Marcy Wheeler from emptywheel.net to recap most of the important news of the week.... Today we talk the Trump trial and the show of Republican members of Congress skipping out on their jobs  to do Dear Leader's bidding at a NYC courthouse, some even making implicit terror threats (looking at you Matt Gaetz)... there's the fascist proclivities of SCOTUS (in) justice Alito, journalistic lack of integrity, disorder in the House and lots more...

Thursdays with Howie Klein and a Whole Lot More on the Nicole Sandler Show – 5-16-24

     Today's Thursday, so we have a standing date with Howie Klein of DownWithTyranny.com and the Blue America PAC. He usually joins us at around the :30 minute mark. He's out at an appointment today, but we should still be able to get him on the phone for a conversation.... But if something prevents that from happening, we've still got you covered as there's more insanity flying around the interwebs today than I could possibly get through in an hour. For example, some Neanderthal football player from Kansas delivered a commencement speech on Saturday that he is correctly [...]

WTF Wednesday on the Nicole Sandler Show – 5-15-24

 President Joe Biden owned TFG this morning when he issued his challenge for not just one, but TWO debates to happen in June and September. Surprisingly, TFG agreed...BUT then, true to form, he lied about a THIRD debate, hosted by Fox (NOT) News, saying he accepted that one too. But, true to form, he made it up. A third debate and especially one hosted by FOX was NEVER on the table. The poor schmuck just can't abide by anyone else's rules. Yesterday, Digby told me that the sycophants who are still cult members aren't even denying that TFG [...]
