4-27-21 Nicole Sandler Show – It’s Not Easy Being Green with Desi Doyen

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)     President Biden last week convened 40 world leaders for a virtual climate change conference that, by most accounts, went very well and showed the world that the US is back. Desi Doyen of the Green News Report & BradBlog/BradCast watched the whole thing. She filled us in on what we missed, and sounded an optimistic note about where we're headed. I did play a funny... this from Chris Mann https://youtu.be/0ZvkZ14_HA0 It's showtime! (5ET/2PT). The @greennewsreport's #DesiDoyen takes us greener with info [...]

4-26-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Getting it Correct with Dave Johnson

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)     Today begins a new week that will mark President Joe Biden's 100th day in office, and his first address to a joint session of Congress. I'll take stock of where we are at this point with blogger Dave Johnson, from a long line of Johnsons who are usually right, er, correct. Today, I began the show once again lamenting the sad state of police in this country who seem bound and determined to flex their power muscles, kill Black people and [...]

4-23-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Aloha Friday with Sen Mazie Hirono

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)     We reached another Friday after another exhausting week. This week included Derek Chauvin's guilty verdicts plus two more black people shot and killed by police...or was it three? It's hard to keep track these days. I have a bunch of news stories to share that otherwise might have fallen through the cracks. And my guest today is Senator Mazie Hirono of Hawaii, who scored a big win yesterday with her Covid Hate Crimes bill overwhelmingly passing in the senate. She also [...]

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

  Download here or click below to play   It's Thursday, so that means that Howie Klein of Down with Tyranny and the Blue America PAC is here. He's bringing some breaking news with him. I'm not sure what it is, but I do know it has to do with Ted Lieu, Tucker Carlson and really foul language. Lots of news to get to today too... It's Thursday, so Howie Klein joins me on today's show. He has some breaking news, and he warns that no small children should be in the room when he tells us what it is. [...]

4-20-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Guilty on All Counts!

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   Derek Chauvin was found guilty on all charges in the death of George Floyd. That's both 2nd and 3rd degree murder and manslaughter. Seeing him led from the courtroom in handcuffs knowing he won't likely see daylight again was the news I needed today. Jack Rice checked in to give us a bit of background information. And we spent some time with OG blogger Driftglass too... It was a good day. Just what we needed. I won't be here tomorrow, but I [...]

4-19-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Guns Are Killing Us; Cops Are Too

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)     Closing Arguments are going on today in the trial of Derek Chauvin, the cop who killed George Floyd by kneeling on his neck for over 9 minutes last year. Since the trial began on March 29, at least 64 people have died at the hands of law enforcement nationwide. And since we were shocked back into reality on March 16, when eight people were killed at three Atlanta-area spas, the US has had at least 50 mass shootings. Perhaps by showtime, [...]

4-16-21 Nicole Sandler Show – News, Music and Politics

I'm glad this week is over. I can't even recite the mass shootings and cops who killed Black men (or boys) in the past week, because this shit has reached pandemic proportions. Or, more accurately, epidemic, as it's only here in the US. I did check in with The Intercept's Ryan Grim who broke the story this week about Democrats introducing legislation to expand the number of justices on the Supreme Court. He'll give us the story on that, plus weigh in on the PRO Act and DC Statehood. Then we'll segue into the weekend, as I'm joined by Greg [...]

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)     Digby is my guest today. She wrote a great post (up at both digbysblog.net and Salon.com) about Joe Biden announcing we'll have our troops out of Afghanistan by 9/11, the 20th anniversary of that attack. I began the show talking about a few recent incidents of blatant racism, one of them featured a drill sergeant from Fort Jackson in South Carolina, attacking a young black man for simply walking down the sidewalk. It's showtime! Click to watch/listen and find out why [...]

4-13-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Guns Down with Igor Volsky

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   The past month has been devastating when it comes to guns in America. I mistakenly thought that we had gotten a bit of a reprieve during the pandemic. Well, maybe there was break in school shootings-- because the kids were out of school! But there were actually more shootings during the lockdown, as many people went out and bought guns! And as the nation returns to "normal," the shootings are surpassing pre-COVID levels. I had already invited Igor Volsky, founder & director [...]
