3-28-22 Nicole Sandler Show – A Gaffe, a Slap & a 21st Century Bill of Rights with Harvey J Kaye

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   President Biden is still suffering from falling approval ratings. The surprising thing it that his numbers are low on the economy too. Record GDP growth, record low unemployment and a still raging stock market, but plummeting ratings? I wonder what that's about (not really, I know exactly what -- or who-- is responsible.) Today, Biden introduced his budget. The president's budget never goes anywhere and usually doesn't even merit much press coverage, but the media is all over Biden whenever an opportunity [...]

12-31-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Once More With Feeling… and That’s A Wrap

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   As if 2021 wasn't already on our "worst years ever" list, it dealt us another blow on its way out. Betty White died today. She was 99, less than three weeks shy of 100. Makes you hate this year even more. And then you realize that the next year is 2020 too. (2022... we just can't escape it!) I generally like New Years' Eve. It's even my wedding anniversary! David and I got married six years ago tonight. Mostly we'll be celebrating [...]

11-10-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Harvey J. Kaye Returns …And Justice for All?

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) Liberty and Justice for all? Not in 2021, that's for sure. There's a lot going on, so Harvey J Kaye, professor emeritus of Democracy & Justice Studies at UW Green Bay returns today to shoot the political shit. And I'm not above asking him about "the peoples'" quarterback. We really are living in Opposite World... https://youtu.be/_Ofmi5Gm6Vc

10-12-21 Nicole Sandler Show – History Repeating with Harvey J Kaye

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) https://youtu.be/yzLT6_TQmq8 If there was a way to play music on this program without getting copyright violated, I'd open today's show with "History Repeating" by the Propellerheads featuring Shirley Bassey. I couldn't play it on the air, but I certainly could post it here. Please watch and listen. It's really good! I fear that we are witnessing the rise of fascism exactly as it played out in Europe in the last century, and many times before. Some of us have the responsibility of narrating [...]

7-21-21 Nicole Sandler Show -Capitol Dysfunction with Harvey J. Kaye

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   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 [...]

6-28-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Democracy in Tatters with Harvey J. Kaye

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   We are living in strange times. Today, I'm joined by Professor Harvey J. Kaye to try to make sense of those things that don't. We'll see if Harvey can talk me down.   https://youtu.be/Mh_fz6JLrvg

4-30-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Progressive Professor Rates Potus Performance with Harvey J Kaye

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 [...]

3-30-21 Nicole Sandler Show – FDR, LBJ, JOE? with 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 [...]

12-11-20 Nicole Sandler -Getting in the Holiday Spirit but Gremlins invaded

Download here or click below to play     It was a great game plan for todoay's show. Unfortunately, the tech gremlins invaded my studio today. Sorry for all the glitches, but big thanks to Harry, Judith and Harvey for being good sports today! We end the week with a busy show that embraces the whole holiday experience! We'll begin with a visit from Harry Shearer and Judith Owen. You know Harry from everything from The Simpsons to This Is Spinal Tap. And you should know his wife, Judith Owen, an amazing singer, songwriter and natural comedian. For years, they've [...]

9-23-20 Nicole Sandler Show – The End of America? with Harvey J. Kaye

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._ [...]
