10-5-22 Nicole Sandler Show – The Democrats’ Dilemma with Ed Burmilia

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) Do you remember the term "tough love"? It was a behavior modification approach to troubled teens popularized in the last century. Sort of a last resort for kids that just don't learn from their mistakes and keep getting into the same kinds of trouble repeatedly. Well, today on the show, I speak with Ed Burmila, who holds a PhD in political science, and has written about and taught American politics for years, is the author of the new book, Chaotic Neutral: How [...]

7-7-22 Nicole Sandler Show – Thursdays with Howie Klein

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   I'm back today after taking a much needed mental health/hang with the family day. That's what hearing the stories about the innocent people who were killed on the 4th of July, doing something to celebrate this country. I fear there's not much about this country worth celebrating any more. And the events that unfolded Monday morning in Highland Park, IL. The two year-old toddler who lost both of his parents as his father was killed shielding his tiny body with his own. [...]

5-12-22 Nicole Sandler Show – Thursdays with Howie Klein and Tom Nelson for Wisconsin

  Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   We're now two weeks in to primary season for the 2022 midterms, and it's too soon to declare any trend. But we can still be terribly frightened of what's to come. The candidates endorsed by Howie Klein's Blue America PAC represent our best hope of taking the US off the rightward track toward fascism. Today, we'll be joined by Tom Nelson, the progressive running for the Democratic nomination in the senate race from WI to take on Ron Johnson. But first, [...]

12-17-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Everything Falls Apart

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   There was an artist I played on the radio back in the early 90s who recorded under the band name Dog's Eye View. They had one hit. The lyrics included "Everything falls apart, and then I get to try to put it back together again". Maybe the Dems can adopt it as their new theme song. As we approach the end of the year, we'll recap where the Democrats are in enacting their 2021 agenda priorities. (Hint: it's not a great track [...]

12-8-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Wednesday Words of Wisdom with Digby

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   Despite the fact that Congress appears to be getting some work done, our government is broken, perhaps beyond repair. It's not like we haven't seen this coming. We've been watching the slow motion moved toward fascism for many years now. Red flags are being raised from almost every direction. This week, it was in the form of a terrifying article from Barton Gellman at The Atlantic who confirms our worst fears, January 6 was just practice. The coup is in full-swing. We [...]

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 [...]

11-2-21 Nicole Sandler Show – A Driftglass-Sandler Scorpio Bitching Birthday Bash

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) Driftglass is one of the OG progressive bloggers, and he's still at it, preaching sense to the masses at driftglass.blogspot.com. He also co-hosts the Professional Left Podcast with his wife, the brilliant and lovely Blue Gal Fran. He's been kicked off of Twitter, but he won't be silenced. I've been a fan of his for at least a decade, and I just learned that we're kindred spirits... we're both Scorpios. So, during our mutual birthday week, I figured we could put our minds [...]

10-27-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Talking Politics in Opposite World with John Neffinger

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   We begin today's show with the latest on the Democrats' negotiations about the two infrastructure bills and President Biden's domestic agenda, and how two senators (Manhenema) are sabotaging it and the future of not only the Democratic Party, but democracy in the United States itself. Call me cynical... I may have to add the CY back to the beginning of my name (cynicole..... get it?) One thing is for sure, that's that the Democratic Party has a messaging problem. It's been the [...]

9-23-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Democratic Party Clusterf*^ck

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) The old adage goes "Democrats, snatching defeat from the jaws of victory." Sadly it becomes more true with each passing day. But everything is on the line right now. And if the Congressional Democrats can't get the president's signature Build Back Better plan passed, it's our own fault. Today, we'll review what's going on and where we are right now. I'll also explain some of the other things that slipping through our fingers, and why. And we'll open the phones too for your [...]

2-1-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Oligarchs and Minions and Thom Hartmann Too

Download here or click below to play     Oligarchy is the word of the day, brought to us by Thom Hartmann.  He gives the subject his Hidden History treatment in his latest book, The Hidden History of American Oligarchy: Reclaiming Our Democracy from the Ruling Class. But first, a few other things that are out of whack are on Nicole's mind. Like the Rochester police pepper spraying a 9-year old girl who was handcuffed in the back seat of the squad car! Then the head of the police union claiming she wasn't hurt! How about we handcuff him and [...]
