9-13-21 Nicole Sandler Show – The Times Are A Changing with Katrina vanden Heuvel

  Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   It's been 20 years since 9/11. In many ways, it feels like a moment. In others, it's a lifetime removed. The weekend was filled with memories, both of that awful day and the days surrounding it. Life changed. We were all affected by the events of that day, and still are. Some of the ways are only now becoming apparent. Today, I welcome Katrina vanden Heuvel, Publisher and Editorial Director of The Nation, back to the show. It's been a while [...]

9-3-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Ending an Epically Bad Week with John Nichols

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   The chaotic end to our longest war ever. Hurricane Ida makes landfall in New Orleans on the 16th anniversary of Katrina, devastating the region again. The Supreme Court all but overturns Roe v Wade on its shadow docket in the dead of night. Ida remnants wreak havoc on the northeast, killing at least 45 people in six states, crippling NYC and the surrounding areas. This was an epically awful week. The cynic in me wants to crawl under a rock. My hopefully [...]

8-31-21 Nicole Sandler Show – War is Over (If You Want It)

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   The last US troops departed Afghanistan yesterday, ending our longest war ever. Please let this be the last one (though I know it won't be). Because we live in opposite world, I feel as if I have to defend Joe Biden. He's the only president in the last 20 years who had the balls to actually get us out of that quagmire, despite the political attacks on him. We'll hear some of the officials explain the situation and, once again, will speak [...]

8-26-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Thursdays with Howie Klein and Erica Smith Today Too

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   Every Thursday, I'm joined by Howie Klein. Since leaving his post as president of Reprise Records years ago, Howie has put his energies to work to make the US a more progressive nation. To that end, he blogs at DownWithTyranny.com, and founded the Blue America PAC. Along with Digby and Crooks & Liars' John Amato, Howie vets potential candidates, and helps the true progressives among them by raising money and helping to get others on board. Today, one of Blue America's endorsed [...]

8-20-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Wage Peace, Organize and Vote!

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   It's a Friday and boy, do we need a weekend. Today, we'll deal with a couple of the big issues facing our world. We'll start with the end of our occupation of Afghanistan after 20 years. The mainstream corporate media coverage has been a lot of finger pointing and blaming the current administration. Thatwhile the people who got us into this mess in the first place are being interviewed as if their views mattered! We've also learned that anti-war organizations have been [...]

8-19-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Thursdays with Howie Klein and Some Good News Too

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   Yes, I have some good news to open the show with today. In fact, the news is so good that it'll be difficult to put me in a bad mood today. The five-year anniversary of the surgery I had for lung cancer is coming up on August 30. At the start of this journey, the doctors explained that I'd get scanned quarterly for five years. If at the end of five years, the scans were still clean, I'd be considered cured... and [...]

8-18-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Just a Little Bit of History Repeating or A Change is Gonna Come

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   One constant in this world is change. Today we'll talk about some of the change we're experiencing now. Much of it change we've seen before, and should be a giant red flag warning us about history repeating! If I could play music on this show, I would have opened today with this one. Do yourself a favor and watch the Propellerheads featuring Shirley Bassey. This is genius! https://youtu.be/yzLT6_TQmq8 After 20-year occupation, the US is removing all remaining troops from Afghanistan. The exit [...]

8-17-21 The Nicole Sandler Show – 52 Years After Woodstock, Time for Songs of Peace with Melanie

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   On this day in 1969, Woodstock was in its final day of Peace and Music. Melanie Safka (better known to us simply as Melanie) performed on the first day. This week, she re-created her Woodstock set and shared it online. Today, I figured we could use an injection of peace and the energy of Woodstock, so Melanie will join us for the second half of the show. But we'll begin with the response to the US pullout of troops from Afghanistan. President [...]

8-16-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Afghanistan Falls and Spencer Ackerman is Here

Download here or click below to play   Sometimes my timing is spot on, as is the case today. Spencer Ackerman's new book, Reign of Terror: How the 9/11 Era Destabilized America and Produced Trump was released Tuesday; Afghanistan fell yesterday after the US pulled out. And, lucky for us, he's my guest today on the show! He'll join in at the :30 minute mark at the bottom of the hour. I'll do my best to explain what happened over the weekend at the top of the show... https://youtu.be/4D_YE0Udx_k

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)     It's a Thursday, so Howie Klein of Down with Tyranny and the Blue America PAC is here. And since we're already in election season for Nov of 2022, he occasionally brings along candidates endorsed by Blue America. Today, we're joined by Lucas Kunce, who's running for the Senate from Missouri, for the open seat being vacated by the retiring Roy Blount. In the first half of the show, I shared an essay from John Pavlovitz about his family's COVID experience. It's [...]
