10-21-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Thursdays with Howie Klein

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) Watching Congress navigate a couple of bills that would actually improve the lives of millions of Americans in one fell swoop is becoming a nail biter, stress-filled exercise. I'm used to Republicans obstructing the progress Democrats attempt. In this case, it's two alleged Democratic senators - Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema-- who are keeping the president from being able to enact substantive change in this country. Instead, they're delivering what could be a death blow to the Democratic party and its control of [...]

10-14-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Thursdays with Howie Klein

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   To absolutely no one's surprise, Steve Bannon and Kash Patel defied their subpoenas and did not appear before the House Select Committee investigating January 6 today. Now the committee says they will refer him to the Justice Dept for criminal prosecution.... but not until after the committee meets on Tuesday. Huh? Kyrsten Sinema is on a fundraising trip to Europe. Seriously. There's so much happening that defies common sense. So that's where we'll begin today, as Howie Klein of Down with Tyranny [...]

10-7-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Thursdays with Howie Klein as McConnell Blinks

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   We dodged a bullet this week, but just barely, and only temporarily. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is playing a dangerous game while accusing the Democrats of politicizing everything when he's the guy actually politicizing everything. That's what they do. It's classic projection. They engage in heinous, often illegal behaviors but accuse the Democrats of doing what they themselves are guilty of. It what I call "Opposite World". We're experiencing it happening in real time and there's seemingly nothing we can do [...]

9-30-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Thursday with Howie Klein and our Manchinema Problem

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) Howie Klein of DownWithTyranny.com and the Blue America PAC has been doing a weekly segment on my show for over a decade now! And for as long as I can remember, he's warned us about Kyrsten Sinema. He knows her from way back and insists she's always been crazy. Now he can say, "I told you so." The question is, what do we do about her? We'll talk about that among other things today, as we're waiting to find out how the Infrastructure/Reconciliation/Debt [...]

9-16-21 Nicole Sandler Show – A Busy Thursday with Howie Klein and Alex Lawson Too

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   It's Thursday, the day we usually visit with Howie Klein of Down with Tyranny and the Blue America PAC. He'll be here today. We'll talk about the three so-called Democrats who tanked the provision that would allow Medicare to negotiate drug prices. It makes no sense, so we'll get Howie's take on it (and find out from him who these three so-called Democrats are). Before I get Howie on the line, I'll check in with Alex Lawson, executive director of Social Security [...]

9-9-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Thursdays with Howie Klein (And Pres Biden Too)

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) Howie Klein (Down with Tyranny/ Blue America PAC) has done a weekly segment with me for over a decade now. Howie and I actually met long before we both became politically active. I was doing (really good) music radio in Los Angeles, and Howie was president of Reprise Records. I so appreciate Howie's work. And I'm thrilled that he joins me weekly on the air to help promote great progressive candidates who, if elected, will help the people that have for too long [...]

9-2-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Welcome to Gilead 2.0 with Lisa Graves & Howie Klein

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   It's Thursday, the day we get together with Howie Klein of Down with Tyranny and the Blue America PAC. We'll have a serious discussion today about the failure of the Democratic Party to stop the American Taliban's takeover of our country. Yes, I'm referring to the Orwellian law that went into effect in Texas, now with the Trump-packed Supreme Court's seal of approval. It not only criminalizes abortion in the state, but deputizes random idiots to target women who are even considering [...]

8-26-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Thursdays with Howie Klein and Erica Smith Today Too

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   Every Thursday, I'm joined by Howie Klein. Since leaving his post as president of Reprise Records years ago, Howie has put his energies to work to make the US a more progressive nation. To that end, he blogs at DownWithTyranny.com, and founded the Blue America PAC. Along with Digby and Crooks & Liars' John Amato, Howie vets potential candidates, and helps the true progressives among them by raising money and helping to get others on board. Today, one of Blue America's endorsed [...]

8-19-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Thursdays with Howie Klein and Some Good News Too

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   Yes, I have some good news to open the show with today. In fact, the news is so good that it'll be difficult to put me in a bad mood today. The five-year anniversary of the surgery I had for lung cancer is coming up on August 30. At the start of this journey, the doctors explained that I'd get scanned quarterly for five years. If at the end of five years, the scans were still clean, I'd be considered cured... and [...]

8-12-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Thursdays with Howie Klein

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) There's finally been some action on Joe Biden's infrastructure plan(s). What's still unknown is how it will all play out in the end. Although it was relatively smooth-sailing in the senate this week, the House is looking like it might present a few problems. Could Nancy Pelosi be doing the right thing here (meaning correct)? She's pushed back on the "moderates" (ConservaDems). They're the ones who are demanding the "BiPartisan" Infrastructure bill be brought to the House at the same time they consider [...]
