9-14-21 Nicole Sandler Show – The FOIA Master Jason Leopold Strikes Again

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   The FBI dubbed my friend Jason Leopold a "FOIA Terrorist." It's a label he wears proudly, but it bugs me... because he's not a terrorist. Jason is a hero. Digging deep to uncover the dirt that the powers that be don't want you to see. So I prefer to refer to Jason Leopold as The FOIA Master! And he joins us today. Jason, using his immense power of the pen, filed the paperwork and, in return, was able to get an exclusive [...]

5-4-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Gimme Some Truth, FOIA Style with Jason Leopold

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   Jason Leopold was dubbed “the FOIA Terrorist” by the Bush Administration, and the name stuck because Jason appropriated it! He utilizes FOIA better and more effectively than anyone else in the news business. I had scheduled Jason to join us today because it had been a while since we’d spoken, and was pleasantly surprised to awaken this morning to a new scoop from Jason and his FOIA prowess. Today is May 4 -- as in May the Fourth... and Shirley Serban made [...]

Download here or click below to play     I didn't think it was possible after the year we've almost completed, but the news is getting even more weird by the day. Today, we'll examine the rank Republican hypocrisy on display now more than ever, the ongoing acts of sedition and other nonsense Trump is considering, and the role of journalism in protecting Democracy. BuzzFeed News' senior investigative journalist and government-labeled FOIA Terrorist Jason Leopold is our guest today. No funny today, but I did show some of my paintings and promised I'd post them here for those who only [...]

7-10-20 Nicole Sandler Show – Wrapping Up the Winning Week

Download here or click below to play       It's been one hell of a week. Nothing shocking there, as it's been a crazy, fucked-up year so far, so why should this week be any different? Florida, where I live, is one of the ugliest COVID-19 hotspots on the planet right now. It's time to change our elected officials to take the DUH out of FloriDUH. Today, I'll speak with Jen Perelman, who's primarying one of our worst, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, to represent Florida's 23rd district in Congress. Then we'll speak with and salute the man dubbed the "FOIA [...]

3-6-20 Nicole Sandler Show – Ending a Brutal Week with Jason Leopold & Digby

Download here or click below to play   We made it to the end of a horrible week that included a brutal Super Tuesday, the end of a number of campaigns, a stock market crash and the global explosion of the coronavirus. We have two great guests today: Jason Leopold of BuzzFeed News whose lawsuit might bring us the unredacted Mueller Report (read about it here), and OG blogger Heather "Digby" Parton (find her blog here, and at Salon here) to help me muddle through this crazy week that was!

It's a busy Tuesday. Before we get to our regular Tuesday segment in which @GottaLaff and I shoot the shit about the news and check Twitter for the latest, I'll check in with Jason Leopold of BuzzFeed News.

As usual, we'll get to the latest news of the day including Bernie Sanders' speech on Democratic Socialism, but today's show also features two great guests.

12-16-16 Nicole Sandler Show – Jason Leopold is NOT a Terrorist!

No, Jason Leopold of Vice News is NOT a terrorist, though our government has christened him the "FOIA Terrorist," ostensibly because he uses it to get information they'd prefer not be made public. I know Jason wears the tag proudly, but it's not a moniker I like! I think he's our FOIA hero! Now, after the feds ignored his expedited request for information about Donald Trump before the election, he's filed  wide-reaching lawsuit and is asking for virtually everything related to Trump, Hillary Clinton, and the election. He joined me on this episode of the show to bring us all up do [...]

10-21-16 Nicole Sandler Show – Jason Leopold & Bartiromo’s Boobs

Apologies for the titillating title, so to speak, but if you watched the Al Smith Dinner last night, you couldn't miss them. Now that that's out of the way... Jason Leopold was my guest today on the show. He's been making me as proud as ever to be his friend as I read and watch his work as an investigative correspondent for Vice News and the new nightly HBO show Vice News Tonight. Today, we discussed his being labeled a "FOIA Terrorist" by the government because of his expert use of the Freedom of Information Act to access information otherwise [...]
