Nancy Pelosi today rejected two of Kevin McCarthy's pics for the Select Committee on Jan 6, so McCarthy accused her of playing partisan politics and said none of his members would participate. That's the grown-up version of taking ones toys and going home, I guess. In the senate, the Republicans are doing their best to stop any business from getting done, in this case it's the infrastructure bills they're stopping. Who better to try to make sense of the nonsense than a [...]

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) I guess I'm grading on a curve after the former guy. Can you really blame me? Today, I'm joined by Harvey J. Kaye, professor emeritus of Democracy and Justice Studies at UW Green Bay. Perhaps I've been giving Biden some extra benefit of the doubt after the traumatic four years we barely survived, but I am a bit distressed that so many of my progressive pals are using the progressive purity test to measure how he's doing. Anyway, Harvey J. Kaye [...]
Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) I'm not usually happy to be proven wrong, but in this case I'm thrilled. I was wrong about Joe Biden when I fought against his nomination. I was judging him based on his decades of history as a centrist to conservative Democrat when we needed a truly bold progressive. Now, 70 days or so into the Biden administration, I'm watching the most progressive president implementing the most progressive programs since LBJ's Great Society. Today, we'll find out if our old friend [...]

Download here or click below to play It's very difficult to digest all that's happening around us, as it feels like the end of the American experiment. I'm not sure the US can survive if it continues on this Trumpian course. But then again, I'm not a historian. So we'll speak with one today. Harvey J. Kaye is a historian and former professor at University of Wisconsin/Green Bay, and the author of a number of books including Thomas Paine & the Promise of America; The Fight for the Four Freedoms; Take Hold of Our History; FDR on Democracy._ [...]

We wrap up another week on the Nicole Sandler Show with a roundup of the latest news, and a conversation with Professor Harvey J. Kaye about his brand new book, Take Hold of Our History: Make America Radical Again.
It's Wednesday, Trump is visiting Dayton and El Paso while he continues gaslighting America. Nicole begins the show with the latest news of the day, including the controversy over Congressman Joaquin Castro (twin brother of presidential candidate Julian Castro) tweeting out a list of the 44 San Antonians who've maxed out on their contributions to Trump- and the NY Times' bashing it, and the NY Times changing their biased headline due to readers' outrage. Our guest today was Professor of Democracy and Justice Studies at the University of Wisconsin Green Bay and author of many books, including a brand [...]
It's another busy Friday on the Nicole Sandler Show. In addition to all the breaking news, we have two great guests. Mother Jones' Ari Berman tells us the latest on the Trump administration's efforts to include a citizenship question in the 2020 Census and why it's such an awful idea. And Professor Harvey J Kaye joins in to explain the significance of Bernie Sanders' speech on Wednesday about Democratic Socialism and what it has to do with FDR. And in case you missed it, here's Bernie and his speech in its entirety.
