10-12-22 Nicole Sandler Show – Four Weeks Out Jeff Sharlet Weighs In

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   One of the best parts of this job is that I get to speak with some amazing people. I first met Jeff Sharlet over a decade ago when I interviewed him for his brilliant book, "The Family: The Secret Fundamentalism at the Heart of American Power." The book, and the one that followed, C Street: The Fundamentalist Threat to American Democracy are the basis of the Netflix series, "The Family." They detail the very secretive but omnipresent religious group that somehow straddles [...]

I’m Moving to Canada. Part One: Why?

Port Moody, British Columbia When George W. Bush frauded his way into the White House, I cried for two days. My twins watched me, and they didn't understand why. I tried to explain to them why I was sad. Little did I know that my worst fears about a Bush presidency would be realized, and then some. When Donald Trump duped 62,984,828 Americans into voting for him-- 2,868,686 fewer votes than Hillary Clinton got-- and somehow became the *shudder* President of the United States, I cried for two weeks straight. This time I knew what was coming. [...]

Unfortunately, this year we're dealing with a very flawed census (sabotaged by the Trump administration) and Republican rule of a majority of the state legislatures who oversee the redistricting process. The first step to fighting back is understanding what we're dealing with. So today, David Daley returns to the show. He's written [...]
