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 [...]

3-30-22 Nicole Sandler Show – Covid Across America & a Trip to Ukraine Too with Brian Karem

  Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   Most of us learned of Brian Karem through his tough questions from the White House Press Briefing Room during the former administration. His willingness to stand up to the authoritarian regime and ask important questions prompted me to invite him on this program a few times. Now he's become one of my favorite guests. He was here last month to talk about his new book, Free the Press and he told us he was headed to Ukraine. Now he's back, and [...]

1-24-22 Nicole Sandler Show -John Nichols on How We Got Here and Whether We Can Fix Things

  Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)  We've now passed the one-year mark of the post-Trump presidency, but like other former presidents, that one won't go away. I realized last week that I had entirely forgotten about the annual Progressive Honor Roll, as designated by John Nichols and his colleagues at The Nation magazine. I think I've had John on as a guest every year for the past decade reviewing the progressive heroes of the previous year. So, I reached out to invite him on, belatedly. And learned that [...]

12-23-21 Nicole Sandler Show – A Covid Update & Festivus Thursday with Howie Klein

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   Today is Festivus, also known as Christmas Eve Eve. But more than either of those, it's Thursday, so Howie Klein is here. I'm sure Howie has some grievances to share, like in his latest post in which he goes off on the worst Wall Street types who've been bribing members of Congress, but now want to be members of Congress. Greed-- it's the perfect story for Christmas week. When does one have enough? We'll begin the show with a visit from John [...]

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 [...]

12-1-21 Nicole Sandler Show – With A Little Help From My Friend Kelly Carlin

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   I'll admit it... I have The Beatles on my mind. We're in the middle of watching Get Back, the new documentary on the last album and live performance from the greatest band in history. But I've already learned a few things from it. Relationships are complicated. Life isn't fair. Working within a group is often more difficult than the solo route. And even the biggest band in the history of the world sometimes needed a reset to clear their minds and souls [...]

9-13-21 Nicole Sandler Show – The Times Are A Changing with Katrina vanden Heuvel

  Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   It's been 20 years since 9/11. In many ways, it feels like a moment. In others, it's a lifetime removed. The weekend was filled with memories, both of that awful day and the days surrounding it. Life changed. We were all affected by the events of that day, and still are. Some of the ways are only now becoming apparent. Today, I welcome Katrina vanden Heuvel, Publisher and Editorial Director of The Nation, back to the show. It's been a while [...]

9-9-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Thursdays with Howie Klein (And Pres Biden Too)

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) Howie Klein (Down with Tyranny/ Blue America PAC) has done a weekly segment with me for over a decade now. Howie and I actually met long before we both became politically active. I was doing (really good) music radio in Los Angeles, and Howie was president of Reprise Records. I so appreciate Howie's work. And I'm thrilled that he joins me weekly on the air to help promote great progressive candidates who, if elected, will help the people that have for too long [...]

9-8-21 Nicole Sandler Show – The Pandemic that Shut Down the World with Adam Tooze

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) We're now more than 18 months into the pandemic that most of us never thought could or would ever happen. Unlike anything else we've experienced in our lives, this virus affected the entire planet -- every person in every country at every far-flung corner of the earth. As far as I can surmise, this is the first time, at least in my lifetime, that the entire planet was sharing an experience... one that just won't end. The ramifications are enormous and largely still [...]

8-12-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Thursdays with Howie Klein

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) There's finally been some action on Joe Biden's infrastructure plan(s). What's still unknown is how it will all play out in the end. Although it was relatively smooth-sailing in the senate this week, the House is looking like it might present a few problems. Could Nancy Pelosi be doing the right thing here (meaning correct)? She's pushed back on the "moderates" (ConservaDems). They're the ones who are demanding the "BiPartisan" Infrastructure bill be brought to the House at the same time they consider [...]
