Download here or click below to play Today's show is a bit like the roller coaster of life. We have a lot of ground to cover, beginning with life, love and loss. That part is going to take a while, so let me skip to part two of today's show -- Music Monday. I was thrilled to be joined by Peter Himmelman. He's a Grammy- and Emmy-nominated singer-songwriter, an artist on canvas as well as with music. He's an author, film composer, TV scorer, entrepeneur and performer... and more. I first met Peter 26 years ago when we were launching [...]
"Boca" Britany Somers, Nicole Sandler and Jorge Rodriguez My friend Jorge Rodriguez died on Friday. He was having lunch with his daughter when he suffered a heart attack and died. I'm devastated. I hadn't seen Jorge in a while. But Brit and I were just talking about him, as I was bemoaning my studio troubles and whining that I needed a good engineer to come over and help me figure out the problems. Brit said, "Call Jorge!". I didn't call. I emailed him. And I'm kicking myself because I should have picked up the fucking phone. [...]
We're somewhat reeling from last night's close call in which Donald Trump allegedly launched an attack on Iran, then called it back before any bombs were dropped. We think it's time for a stiff drink, a bong hit, and some comedy bits. South Florida radio legend Boca Britany Somers returns to the show to talk radio, Stonewall, Trump insanity and have some fun...
Ian Millhiser of Think Progress explains the ninth circuit court hearing on Trump's travel ban, and weighs in on the legality of his other actions of late. As the author of Injustices: The Supreme Court's History of Comforting the Comfortable and Afflicting the Afflicted, I asked him a million more questions abut D'ump's actions and the legality of them... We also talked about the Bernie Sanders/Ted Cruz CNN debate on the future of the ACA, and Mitch McConnell's attempt to muzzle Elizabeth Warren.
Nicole begins her week, once again, wondering what happened to our country over the weekend! It's Tuesday, so @GottaLaff joins in. And Boca Brit Somers hangs out in the studio
I did a show today. I wasn't here yesterday or Wednesday, as I wasn't doing well. More about that in a moment, but first I must explain why, although there was a new show today, there's no podcast. YouTube would not connect, and I tried for almost an hour. So, keeping a positive attitude, I just realized today's show was to be audio only. The software that I use to stream audio always usually records a copy of it -- as long as I remember to type the date and start the recording process. When I forget to do that, I'm [...]
Nicole Sandler continues to point out how the media – especially MSNBC – has been pushing Hillary Clinton and undermining Bernie Sanders, with Rachel Maddow fully on board with the deceptive tactics. Hillary Clinton used Maddow’s twisted description of Bernie Sanders’ reaction to the Trump ‘punish the women’ comments in her rallies yesterday, causing Nicole to wonder if Clinton really wants her vote if she wins. Yesterday was International Transgender Day of Visibility, so Boca Britany Somers joins Nicole in studio to talk about the new NC LGBT discrimination law. Kelly Carlin is in town for shows tonight and tomorrow night at the Kravis Center in West Palm Beach, and shares her thoughts on her dad’s life and legacy, her book, Garry Shandling, politics and more.
"Boca" Britany Somers joins Nicole Sandler in studio today to talk with Equality Florida's Gina Duncan about Florida's "bathroom surveillance bill" currently before the FL legislature, which would prohibit transgender people from using the restroom in which they best fit. For Flashback Friday, we go back to 1996 for Nicole's session with Richard Thompson
