Today is December 30... and this afternoon, I'll guest host the Randi Rhodes Show one more time to close out the year. We'll finish our listen back to some of the highlights (and low points) of the year, ask for your New Years' Resolutions and talk with a few guests too... Comedian Ralphie May is headlining the West Palm Beach Improv this week, so he'll join me in the studio. We'll talk with South Florida Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who also doubles as chair of the DNC. And we'll laugh with comedian Hal Sparks too... It's your last chance of [...]
Well, for me on The Nicole Sandler Show anyway... I'm guest hosting the Randi Rhodes Show Fri 12/23 and Mon-Fri 12/26-30. Shane-O will hold down the fort here on my show next week... In the meantime, on this show I finished up our annual year in review, and chatted about the year gone by with John Fugelsang. See you later!
This morning on the show, I had an eye-opening conversation with civil rights attorney James Otto about a lawsuit he filed in California against "healthcare company" Molina Healthcare. (Ed note: I put healthcare company in quotes because I believe this company and others do nothing to care for the help of its clients.)

But basically, Otto is representing a group of former employees who were fired and replaced by non-citizens allowed to work here under H-1B visas, after being forced to train those workers to [...]
Every year, I dig back into the archives of all the audio I gathered for the show - and compile a year-end Rear View Year in Review. On today's show, we got through January and February... In hour two, as we do every Tuesday morning, I got together with GottaLaff of The Political Carnival to talk about some of the week's news... Forgive me for the brevity of today's post... all the details can be heard by listening to the show .... as I just realized that Chanukah begins tonight (I thought it was tomorrow), so off shopping I must [...]
It's hard to believe we're coming up on the end of 2010. The older we get, the shorter the years... or so it seems. 2010 was a year for the history books. This was a year of political frustration, economic distress and ecological disaster. We witnessed the rise of the Tea Party, and division among the Democrats. The first big shot against (small d) democracy came on January 21, when the Supreme Court upended 100 years of law to give corporations the right to buy elections. To add insult to injury, Air America radio (my employer at the time) ceased [...]
