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 [...]

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.
Acting AG Matthew Whitaker is spending the day testifying before the House Judiciary Committee... we'll have some of the highlights (lowlights?)... Professor Harvey J. Kaye joins in to help wrap up the week with some final thoughts on the SOTU and the responses from Stacey Abrams and Bernie Sanders.
As the shutdown becomes the longest government shutdown in American history, today's guest Harvey J. Kaye reminds us what a real president was like. Today is the 75th Anniversary of FDR's 1944 SOTU address calling for a Second Bill of Rights - an Economic Bill of Rights for all Americans. He tells us all about it on today's show.
Nicole Sandler welcomes Professor and author Harvey J. Kaye back to the show at a time when things seem so dire to remind us of what this nation is capable of with a look back at FDR's Four Freedoms. Kaye will be hosting a night of films in that theme on TCM Monday 5/21, and tells us all about it.
