We have unfinished business yesterday, regarding both heinous House votes on the "horrors of socialism" and to remove Ilhan Omar from the Foreign Affairs committee. I'll share Mark Takano's piece for DownwithTyranny.com that Howie Klein told us about yesterday, and we'll try to get to the second half of Rep. Omar's floor speech that we didn't have time for yesterday. Then, [...]

2-2-23 Nicole Sandler Show – Thursday with Howie Klein and Randi Weingarten Too

  https://redirect.zen.ai/r/episode/63dc4b3a81b8899410beccc4/audio-files/5e0cc41aa9798f001400ff98/10c2fff8-0c4a-48a2-9a66-d3ef6bdfaeb7.mp3 Click the player above to play, right click the download button below to download the episode, scroll down for the video version     I was looking forward to a quiet Thursday in which I could talk with Howie Klein about the travesty of ticket prices for live concerts on the day after a new Bruce Springsteen tour's start. I'll likely miss my first Bruce tour since 1980's The River due to Ticketmaster's "dynamic" and exorbitant prices. But we have politics to talk about... The racist, bigoted Republican party that has a majority in the House of Representatives [...]

1-10-23 Nicole Sandler Show – Tuesday with GottaLaff

Laffy is smarter than we knew, as not only is she escaping the fascist faction here in the states, but she's also safe from the massive storm system that's drenched California for the past week with no end in sight. Find Laffy tooting these days on Mastadon! Just go to mastodon.social/@GottaLaff ... that should get you there! Since we last [...]

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 [...]
