7-25-22 Nicole Sandler Show – Just Another Messed Up Monday, Busted Ribs and All

Download here or click below to play   Yes, it's a messed up Monday with a silver lining! I awoke this morning to be greeted by some YouTube videos of Joni Mitchell performing at the Newport Folk Festival yesterday -- her first live performance in about 20 years and her first time on that stage since 1969! Thank goodness, cuz the rest of the day ain't so great... Like finding out I fractured two ribs on Friday and that's what this pain in my side has been. So there's that... Today, we'll hear from the fifth of six Democratic candidates [...]

4-26-22 Nicole Sandler Show – The Good and the Bad and the CPC with Rep Mark Pocan

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) There was a bit of shock, anger and disapproval among my circle of friends and political confidants last week when the Congressional Progressive Caucus officially endorsed Shontel Brown in the primary for OH-11 over progressive favorite Nina Turner. I voiced my concerns about problems with how the caucus is run, and commiserated with Howie Klein of DownWithTyranny/ Blue America PAC, (my standing guest every Thursday) about the problem with recruiting members of the New Dem Coalition to also join the Progressive Caucus. Much [...]

1-3-22 Nicole Sandler Show – And We’re Off with David Dayen

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) The New Year has begun. I wanted to start the year with a guest who can explain what's on tap for 2022, and couldn't think of a better person than David Dayen for that. Dayen is executive editor of The American Prospect, which should be a stop in your morning reading, if you care about being informed. He has an article posted today, "2022: The Year in Governing" in which he outlines basically everything to look out for over the next 12 months. [...]

12-9-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Thursdays with Howie Klein

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) Congress is actually getting things done -- the senate even came to a deal to raise the debt ceiling with little to no bloodshed. Actually, the person taking the heat for making sure we don't default is none other than Mitch McConnell, as he's getting attacked by Trump and his minions for not completely destroying the good faith and credit of the US. Opposite world indeed. It's Thursday, so Howie Klein is here. The way things are going, we need to elect a [...]

11-18-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Thursdays with Howie Klein

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) It's another really strange day in Amerikkka. But it happens to be Thursday, so Howie Klein is here. I know we'll talk about Paul Gosar's censure, the insanity that is today's GOP, the trial-palooza in progress. And I'll certainly ask Howie about his latest article posted at DownWithTyranny.com: "Many Voters No Longer See The Democrats As Even The Lesser Evil". These are scary times, indeed. I promised I'd post the rest of Bernie Sanders' floor speech today on why he's voting against the [...]

11-1-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Annette Taddeo Jumps in the Florida Gubernatorial Race

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   It's a new week and a new month, but we're still fighting old battles. Some of those old battles are getting really old by now... like the latest obstruction from the senator from West Virginia who must be on some kind of a weird power trip right now. As regular listeners of this show know, I'm in Florida. Our governor embodies the worst of Trump. If Florida is to survive, we must get rid of this clown. In the last couple of [...]

10-21-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Thursdays with Howie Klein

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) Watching Congress navigate a couple of bills that would actually improve the lives of millions of Americans in one fell swoop is becoming a nail biter, stress-filled exercise. I'm used to Republicans obstructing the progress Democrats attempt. In this case, it's two alleged Democratic senators - Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema-- who are keeping the president from being able to enact substantive change in this country. Instead, they're delivering what could be a death blow to the Democratic party and its control of [...]

10-20-21 Nicole Sandler Show – The Best Medicine with Noel Casler

  Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   I was wrong when I thought the stress would let up after we get TFG out of the White House, and it did, temporarily. With our future on the line as voting rights are under attack, while Trump and his cronies are still roaming freely even after fomenting an insurrection at the Capitol, as the Democrats in Congress fall all over themselves to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory, and COVID continues to infect and kill people, we're all on [...]

9-29-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Making Sausage the Washington Way with Zach Carter

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   The media likes to refer to Congress' attempts at legislating as "making the sausage". But it's actually a giant shit show. If you want to be disillusioned by government. But I thought I'd use the sausage making analogy because it's sufficiently disgusting. Zach Carter, whose book The Price of Peace: Money, Democracy and the Life of John Maynard Keynes is now available in paperback was today's guest. In addition to his new newsletter that you should subscribe to, he had an op-ed [...]

9-27-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Holding the Crooks Accountable with Jennifer Taub

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   It's Monday, the start of what will be a busy and consequential week on Capitol Hill. It's a sausage-making festival, and won't be fun to watch. But there's so much on the line. Running concurrent to what the legislators are doing is an investigation into the former guy and his minions who've been working to overturn a free and fair election, thus undermining our entire democracy. Sadly the latter is getting very little serious attention. Last week, we saw a six-point plan [...]
