11-14-22 Nicole Sandler Show – Marcy Monday Another Emptywheel Update

  Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) I've been consumed by the midterm elections for the past few weeks. Now that it's (almost) all over, it's time to figure out what's been happening with the numerous investigations into the former guy and his sycophantic insurrectionist followers. For that, we turn to Marcy Wheeler, independent journalist extraordinaire, who covers it all at emptywheel.net.  And you can now find her on Mastadon too, @emptywheel@mastodon.social. Lots to talk about today from the elections to Merrick Garlands progress, to the 1-6 committee and [...]

11-11-22 Nicole Sandler Show – Outstanding Friday

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) We have so many words the mean more than one thing in the English language. One of those words is "outstanding." In thinking about the midterm elections, outstanding works on both levels. Outstanding describes the feeling while watching TFG's teflon finally wearing off. Outstanding is how I'd describe yesterday's NY Post front page. But also outstanding (though under the other meaning) are the results of three senate races and a few dozen House races that will determine which party controls Congress. One of [...]

11-10-22 11-10-22 Nicole Sandler Show – Post-Election Thursday with Howie Klein

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) We're sill awaiting election results that will determine which party controls either or both Houses of Congress, but the big news is that the much-hyped coming Red Wave or Red Tsunami never materialized. I never bought it, but it's time for a major reckoning on how the corporate media enthusiastically and completely parroted the pollsters' partisan and slanted findings as fact, bowing to the idea of a horse race over being careful not to obscure actual facts. So, though there are still [...]

10-27-22 Nicole Sandler Show – Thursday with Howie Klein AND Define American

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) We have a busy show on tap today. As we do most Thursdays, we'll check in with Howie Klein at around the :30 minute mark. We're just over a week away from the end of this 2022 midterm election cycle. Howie's got an interesting article up at DownWithTyranny.com about which Democrats still in the running actually have a shot at winning and can most use our help. Plus, he has a new post up about the Ramones that I'll have to ask [...]

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 [...]

11-20-20 Nicole Sandler Show – Coup or No Coup? with John Nichols & ‘Boca’ Brit Somers

Download here or click below to play   We wrap up another week today with the squatters in the White House trying to upend democracy and reverse the results of the election. I'll have the latest on Trump's attempts to subvert the will of the people in Georgia, Michigan and Wisconsin. John Nichols, National Affairs Correspondent for The Nation, joins us from Wisconsin, where the orange one has demanded another recount that won't change anything. In the second part of the show, I'm joined by "Boca" Britany Somers. This week has been Transgender Awareness Week, and today is Transgender Remembrance [...]

11-13-20 Nicole Sandler Show – Fri the 13th 2020 with Thomas Frank and a Winner Declared

Download here or click below to play   I was dreading this Friday the 13th because, after all, this is 2020. But it's turning out to be a pretty good day! The major news organizations all today finally called the races that were outstanding. With GA going to Biden, the final electoral vote tally is 306-232, the same numbers that saw Trump beating Clinton in 2016. An outcome he called a landslide! I had originally invited Thomas Frank -journalist, historian, and author (The People, No among others)-  to join me on Nov. 4, the day after the election. Because of [...]

11-9-20 Nicole Sandler Show – Welcome to the Interregnum (or Donald is a Lame Duck)

Download here or click below to play     When we last met on Friday, it was apparent that Joe Biden would be the 46th President of the United States, but none of the usual suspects would make the call. So it dragged on for another day before CNN called Pennsylvania for Biden, pushing his total of Electoral College Votes past the 270 needed to win. And the other news organizations all fell into place. The only entities not willing to concede that Trump lost are the Trump campaign and administration. I'll spend most of the show today bringing you [...]

11-5-20 Nicole Sandler Show – Thursday Post-Election Day with Howie Klein

Download here or click below to play   Votes are still being counted, but it's looking more inevitable that Joe Biden will be the next President of the United States, and Donald Trump will be a one-term president. But it's close, and they're still counting in a handful of states that will determine the outcome. But the Democrats were decimated in the House and Senate. As he does every Thursday, Howie Klein of Down with Tyranny and the Blue America PAC joins us today for an election day post-mortem. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u-03h1UTL64    

11-4-20 Nicole Sandler Show – We’re Dumping Trump and Other Election Results

Download here or click below to play   We made it through election day, but not without a ton of heartbreak! The landslide I was hoping for didn't materialize. In fact, the senate will shockingly remain under Republican control with Moscow Mitch returning as majority leader. The Democrats retain control of the House , but with a much smaller majority this time out. And for a while there, it looked like Trump might even eke out a win. But thankfully it appears that he'll be a one-term White House resident. Today is a freewheeling kind of show. Thomas Frank was [...]
