Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   We've got a lot to jam into our last hour of the week today. We'll start with Jason Leopold, who has another two FOIA victories that earn him bragging rights. One of them resulted in 10 redacted passages from the Mueller report being made public. The other has to do with multiple allegations of CIA personnel and sex crimes involving children. The government nicknamed Jason "the FOIA Terrorist." Nope. He's the FOIA Master damn it. We'll move to a much more pleasant [...]

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 [...]

Today is May 4 -- as in May the Fourth... and Shirley Serban made [...]

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 [...]
