Download here or click below to play It's a busy Monday on the Nicole Sandler Show. Over the weekend, we learned that Russia had offered bounties to Taliban fighters to kill American and Trump did nothing in response. Today, the Supreme Court handed down decisions on three of the 13 still outstanding cases. We'll have the latest on all of that and the rest of the news. Then, for Monday Music, we visit with some of the members of NOLA Resistance, who took on the hefty job of updating Gil Scott-Heron's classic "The Revolution Will Not be Televised" [...]
This monumental week ends with more bombshell news reports of the president using his presidential powers to coerce foreign leaders to help Trump take down his political opponents. The Supreme Court today announced they will hear an abortion rights case this term. Today's guest, Jenny Brown, joins in to discuss her new book, "Without Apology: The Abortion Struggle Now". *****Before today's show began, I posted this: As I prepare for today's show, I again watched a video that popped up online yesterday, produced by Matt Orfalea. From what I can tell, he's a Bernie Sanders supporter who produces videos [...]
As the Trump administration is stupidly considering going to war with Iran, Nicole Sandler brings some insight into other stupid military projects our government has proposed by talking with Vince Houghton, historian/curator of the International Spy Museum and author of the new book, Nuking the Moon And Other Intelligence Schemes and Military Plots Left on the Drawing Board. Of course, we begin with the latest news from Alabama and beyond Gilead.

I don't write blog posts very often any more, not since my former co-editor/publisher of The Political Carnival, Paddy Kraska, passed away a couple of years ago. Her death took so much out of me, and my motivation to write long form nearly vanished. Just before she died, we had planned to change the format of our site to one of tweet-like quips and links. Tweeting has been my outlet of choice for awhile now, but with all the fun, quick conversations it offers come frustrations. One of those frustrations is knowing that followers on Twitter don't always see my tweets, just as [...]
Nicole Sandler continues her look back at 2015, covering a lot of ground today: Cliff Schecter joins in to talk guns, mass shootings and the Tamir Rice travesty; Amy Simon brings the state of women in 2015; Julianna Forlano helps shine a light on the absurd news of the year (and there's plenty of that!)
Nicole recaps yesterday's House hearing on Planned Parenthood and the twisted lies that prompted it. Today's guests are Deborah Newell Tornello (who has a few things to say about this, in addition to our regular "Oy FloriDUH" segment), and the always quotable Digby too!
