4-22-22 Nicole Sandler Show – The Wrong Kind of Green on Earth Day

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) Today is Earth Day. To mark the occasion, I'll speak with author Eugene Linden about his new book, Fire & Flood: A People's History of Climate Change 1979-Present. If we had enacted any of the legislation and protections proposed in the Green New Deal, we'd be in a much better position regarding the fate of the planet than we're currently experiencing. Unfortunately, today we've heard too much (but nothing of substance) from the other kind of green... Marjorie Taylor Green to be precise. [...]

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) So, the progressives caved and lost their leverage. I hope with every ounce of my being that Pramila Jayapal knows what she's doing. The fact is, the progressives got played. On Friday night, every Democratic in the House except for six voted for the "bipartisan infrastructure bill" or BIF, as it was euphemistically called). With the help of 13 Republicans who had the backbone (or death wish) needed, they got it across the finish line. A giddy Nancy Pelosi then sent it to [...]

11-5-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Disorder in the House or Why We Can’t Have Nice Things

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   I'm so disappointed in our Democratic Party. That statement stands alone. It says nothing about how vile and evil the Republicans are. In fact, both of today's political parties are guilty of malpractice and much worse, but that has nothing to do with the fact that the Democrats really suck. I'll have a few words on this topic. Hopefully I can string them together into a sentence that's understandable. I didn't sleep well last night, but then what else is new? Today [...]

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 [...]

8-10-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Infrastructure Legislation, Andrew Cuomo Resignation, Climate Crisis Mitigation

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   The month of August used to be slow. Everything shut down. But there's no such thing as a slow news day anymore. Today, we have a lot of ground to cover. We'll begin with Infrastructure legislation. As Joe Biden said, "After years and years of infrastructure week, we are on the cusp of infrastructure decade." And it has begun... Then we move to Resignation... Andrew Cuomo's resignation, to be precise. And we'll finish with Mitigation. That's the buzzword as we must finally [...]

8-4-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Waiting for the End of the World with Daniel Sherrell

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   "Waiting for the End of the World" is an Elvis Costello song that I can't play on the air if I want to avoid another copyright strike. But it's where my mind immediately went when I heard the title of climate activist Daniel Sherrell's book, Warmth: Coming of Age at the End of the World. The title also brings to mind an inner argument I've been waging with myself for years: knowing what we do about the coming effects of climate change, [...]

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)     President Biden last week convened 40 world leaders for a virtual climate change conference that, by most accounts, went very well and showed the world that the US is back. Desi Doyen of the Green News Report & BradBlog/BradCast watched the whole thing. She filled us in on what we missed, and sounded an optimistic note about where we're headed. I did play a funny... this from Chris Mann https://youtu.be/0ZvkZ14_HA0 It's showtime! (5ET/2PT). The @greennewsreport's #DesiDoyen takes us greener with info [...]

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)     President Biden signed a few executive orders shortly after being sworn in to mitigate climate change and get us on the correct road to saving the planet. But it'll take all of us getting on board. Are we ready? What must we do? I'm joined today by Andreas Karelas, founder of REvolve, and author of  Climate Courage: How tacking climate change can build community, transform the economy, and bridge the political divide in America . But first, I have a few [...]

2-3-21 Nicole Sandler Show – A Visit with the Environmental Coffee House

Download here or click below to play   President Joe Biden has signed a bunch of Executive Orders in his first two weeks in office. As he said yesterday, he's not making new law, he's just eliminating bad policy. Last Wednesday was the day he tackled climate. On day one, Biden signed executive orders to re-join the Paris Climate Accord and another refocusing on the climate crisis and canceling the Keystone XL permit . Last Wednesday, day 8, he continued with another order to initiate a plan to combat climate change (in accordance with the Paris treaty), establishing the Office [...]

Download here or click below to play   Today we will talk about political parties and a game, currently in development, that's a tool to help combat climate change and COVID-19. We'll start with the game, called The Promised Land, and talk with its developer, Anand Mallik. Then we'll check in with David Atkins. He's a writer (Washington Monthly, The American Prospect) and a California Democratic Party Regional Leader and a recently elected DNC member. I happened upon a lengthy Twitter thread he posted last night about how horribly the DNC is run on every front. Read it here before [...]
