6-10-20 Nicole Sandler Show – Our Surveillance State with Jason Leopold

Download here or click below to play   The House Judiciary Committee today held a hearing on racial profiling and police brutality. It's long past due. Senate Republicans have promised their own police reform legislation, though their original deadline of Friday to release their plan has been scrapped. On the other side of the issue is the Dept of Justice, who's fighting incoming on a number of fronts today, which I'll detail during the program. Today's guest is Jason Leopold, senior investigative reporter for Buzzfeed News, who broke the story last week that the DEA was given sweeping new authority [...]

6-9-20 Nicole Sandler Show – Tuesday Tweeting with @GottaLaff

Download here or click below to play     George Floyd's funeral is being carried on every TV network today, which must be making dear leader unhappy. He took to Twitter again today to smear Martin Gugino, the 75-year old man who was pushed to the ground by two Buffalo cops, as an "Antifa provocateur", accusing him of setting up the cops to injure him. With so many instances of police brutalizing peaceful protesters over the past two weeks, I understand the reason behind the "Defund the Police" sentiment, but fear the messaging is wrong. I'll explain what I mean. [...]

6-5-20 Nicole Sandler Show- Black Lives Matter with Benjamin Dixon

Download here or click below to play     It's been a hell of a week, literally hell. Outraged humans took to the streets, ignoring the dangers posed by the global pandemic that's kept most of us at home for the past few months, to protest the murder of yet another unarmed African American at the hands of the very people who are charged with protecting us all. As a privileged white woman, I speak out, but know that I don't have the first-hand experience of what it's like to be black in America or how I can best help. [...]

Today, we welcome Austin-based singer/songwriter Sara Hickman for some musical medicine for what ails us.

We'll begin the show, as usual, with the latest news, information and commentary. Good thing Sara Hickman will help ground us in the second half of [...]
