3-23-21 Nicole Sandler Show – I’d Take Away the Guns with Dave Johnson

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)     What a shitty day in America. For the second time in less than a week, a sick person with a gun he shouldn't have had access to took a whole bunch of innocent lives. I said last week that the pandemic gave us a respite of sorts from mass shootings. If this is what a return to normalcy brings, I say we're better off hiding at home from the virus...and the bullets. Yesterday it was the formerly idyllic town of Boulder [...]

3-19-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Wrapping Up Another Week with David Dayen & Boca Brit Somers

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)     We're 8 weeks into the Biden administration and things definitely feel different. But how much has changed? We'll check in today with David Dayen, executive editor of The American Prospect, where they're reporting on all the administration is doing. But we'll start with the place I live, FloriDUH and our moRonic governor Death Sentence. Unfortunately, the slimy politics neither begin or end with DeathSentence... he's just our current sideshow. My friend and neighbor 'Boca' Britany Somers joins me to help tell [...]

3-9-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Busting the Filibuster with Norm Ornstein and NV Dems Go Progressive

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   It's another Tuesday without GottaLaff who's still dealing with terrible tendinitis, which is keeping her off the air. But we do have a jam packed show today in her absence. First up, it was a clean sweep of progressives taking over the Nevada Democratic Party. The Intercept's Ryan Grim, who broke the story, joins in at the top of the show to tell us what happened. Then I'm happy to welcome Norm Ornstein to the show. Last week I shared with you [...]

3-8-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Celebrating HERstory on Women’s Day with Amy Simon

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   It is International Women's Day! Even though we still don't have an equal rights amendment here in the US, we can still celebrate the women who've busted their asses to get us to where we are today. After the latest news--that includes this weekend's passage of the American Rescue Plan and the theatrics that surrounded it -- we'll be joined by Amy Simon. Amy is a Cultural HERstorian, and the creator of "She Is History: The Most Dangerous Women in History, Then [...]

3-5-21 Nicole Sandler Show – No Justice, Just Cake

  The senate is in the midst of another vote-a-rama today ahead of a vote, sometime this weekend, on the $1.9 trillion covid relief bill. Today on my show, we'll look ahead to Monday, when the murder trial begins for Derek Chauvin, the Minneapolis police officer who knelt on the neck of George Floyd for almost 10 minutes, ultimately killing him. Jack Rice is an old friend and colleague from Air America Radio who is also an attorney. He's been a prosecutor and is currently working as a criminal defense lawyer. Today, he joins me for a preview of the [...]

1-25-21 Nicole Sandler Show -First Dogs and Watchdogs

Download here or click below to play    There are dogs living at the White House again! After four years without any four-legged residents, the Biden White House has two! Both Champ and Major are German Shepherds, and Major is the first shelter/rescue dog in residence! They waited until the inauguration excitement was over to introduce the pair to their new home. This weekend, the two first pups joined the first family at their new home for the next four (or eight) years. To celebrate, we'll explain the need for watchdog groups, even during a Democratic administration. My guest today [...]

6-21-16 Nicole Sandler Show – Gun-Nation

Last night, Congress proved themselves incapable of taking care of the nation's business in an adult manner. Four amendments were brought to the floor, all with various levels of restrictions on gun purchases by people who should not be allowed near a firearm, let alone own one. All four went down to defeat. I'm battling bronchitis, so probably shouldn't have come on the air at all today, but I couldn't let those votes go by without talking about the travesty. Vote out all the bums. If you'd like to see who the bad guys are you can start with Sen [...]

High Hopes

When I heard we'd get a new Springsteen song called "High Hopes," I wondered if it was a new song or a cover of the old Sinatra "classic".  It was neither... From the liner notes to the forthcoming album, also called High Hopes (due out Jan 14, 2014), Springsteen wrote: I was working on a record of some of our best unreleased material from the past decade when Tom Morello (sitting in for Steve during the Australian leg of our tour) suggested we ought to add "High Hopes" to our live set.  I had cut "High Hopes," a song by Tim [...]


I'm so happy about this news that I won't even get all snarky about how there's nothing NUCLEAR about Harry Reid finally invoking the CONSTITUTIONAL option to change the Senate rules concerning the filibuster.  But use whatever hyperbolic imagery you want today, as the Senate just did something remarkable. History was made moments ago when, after a series of confusing votes, the Democrats were victorious in stopping the GOP obstruction of  executive and judicial nominees going forward. As my friend Marcy Wheeler @emptywheel just tweeted, Patricia Millet is about to become a lifetime appointed judge. Also, the answer to a [...]
