3-29-22 Nicole Sandler Show – So Much Worse than Watergate with Will Bunch

  Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   Will Bunch is today's guest. He's a national columnist for the Philadelphia Inquirer. This year marks the 50th anniversary of Watergate, a political scandal that brought down a president. For the past 50 years, Watergate was held up as the example of the worst of America, and every scandal was positioned in relation to Watergate. Will Bunch is a Watergate junkie. He's my age, so he was only around 12 or 13 when the hearings were everywhere. He says he raced [...]

3-28-22 Nicole Sandler Show – A Gaffe, a Slap & a 21st Century Bill of Rights with Harvey J Kaye

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   President Biden is still suffering from falling approval ratings. The surprising thing it that his numbers are low on the economy too. Record GDP growth, record low unemployment and a still raging stock market, but plummeting ratings? I wonder what that's about (not really, I know exactly what -- or who-- is responsible.) Today, Biden introduced his budget. The president's budget never goes anywhere and usually doesn't even merit much press coverage, but the media is all over Biden whenever an opportunity [...]

1-19-22 Nicole Sandler Show – Someone Had to Document the Insanity with Tim Devine

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   It's a busy day in DC. The senate continues debating the voting rights package, as a vote is planned for this evening at 6:30ET. All indications are that the vote will fail, but the goal is to get everyone one the record as to where they stand, Manchin and Sinema included. There is a question about what it would take to change the filibuster back to a talking filibuster... but I guess we'll see how it plays out tonight. At 4pm ET, [...]

1-14-22 Nicole Sandler Show – Trying to Make Sense of it All with Helaine Olen

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) A change of plans today. If you were looking forward to John Hall's appearance on the show, we'll be rescheduling due to unforeseen circumstances. (How's that for cryptic? I'll explain during the show.) So, it's Friday, the end of another tough week for the Biden administration. Yesterday, I quoted Helaine Olen from a listserv we're on together, though I didn't name her. But the line I quoted was concerning Bidens falling poll numbers. Some of the list pointed the finger of blame at [...]

1-13-22 Nicole Sandler Show – Thursdays with Howie Klein

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   What a day! As I'm setting up for today's show, the number of breaking news stories keeps climbing, and it's a combination of good, bad and really ugly. The good? The head of the Oath Keepers and 10 others were arrested today and charged with seditious conspiracy. Finally. The bad? A lot falls under this category. Kevin McCarthy lied through his teeth at a presser this morning in which he reiterated that he will not cooperate with the House select committee investigating [...]

1-11-22 Nicole Sandler Show – Every Other Tuesday with GottaLaff

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) It's our first gathering with GottaLaff of the New Year and, as usual, there's no shortage of things to talk about. As is usually the case when Laffy's here, we'll likely laugh a lot, get angry, get a little sad, and laugh some more. All while talking about things in the news. Life is that way. Better to laugh at it than let it make you cry... The Marsh Family gave us a new production today! https://youtu.be/_ebjy9nP4lw https://youtu.be/iSLdfI3d3HE  

1-7-22 Nicole Sandler Show – One Week Down, Jeff Sharlet Returns

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) We made it through the first week of 2022, but the country seems to be further divided than ever. And the other side is delusional, claiming that January 6, 2021 was just another day. We'll continue reviewing some of yesterday's madness on today's show, and then welcome Jeff Sharlet back to the show. Jeff is a Dartmouth professor, a journalist who got inside The Family (and C Street) and wrote two books, subsequently the basis of a Netflix docuseries about the religious organization [...]

12-31-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Once More With Feeling… and That’s A Wrap

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   As if 2021 wasn't already on our "worst years ever" list, it dealt us another blow on its way out. Betty White died today. She was 99, less than three weeks shy of 100. Makes you hate this year even more. And then you realize that the next year is 2020 too. (2022... we just can't escape it!) I generally like New Years' Eve. It's even my wedding anniversary! David and I got married six years ago tonight. Mostly we'll be celebrating [...]

12-21-21 Nicole Sandler Show – 10 Days till 2022

  Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   We are in the final days of another shitty year. Really, we all agreed that 2020 was the worst year ever... until 2021 came along. So the idea of 2022 on the horizon is intriguing, knowing it could be a better year ahead but realizing what's stacked against us and coming back to reality. To quote David Byrne, "My God, how did we get here?" We'll check in today with Jeff Hauser of the Revolving Door Project to see how Biden [...]

12-20-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Say it ain’t so, Joe

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   Joe Manchin had reportedly been negotiating with the Democrats over the Build Back Better bill, Joe Biden's signature legislation to help the people who've been left behind here for decades. Yesterday, the senator from West Virginia went behind enemy lines to fire a death blow to his president's agenda. Really. Manchin went on Fox NOT News to stick the last nail in the Build Back Better coffin and dance on its grave. Nice Christmas gift for your president, party, constituents and the [...]
