11-8-21 Nicole Sandler Show – BBB But What About Climate Change

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) So, the progressives caved and lost their leverage. I hope with every ounce of my being that Pramila Jayapal knows what she's doing. The fact is, the progressives got played. On Friday night, every Democratic in the House except for six voted for the "bipartisan infrastructure bill" or BIF, as it was euphemistically called). With the help of 13 Republicans who had the backbone (or death wish) needed, they got it across the finish line. A giddy Nancy Pelosi then sent it to [...]

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   We begin today's show with the latest on the Democrats' negotiations about the two infrastructure bills and President Biden's domestic agenda, and how two senators (Manhenema) are sabotaging it and the future of not only the Democratic Party, but democracy in the United States itself. Call me cynical... I may have to add the CY back to the beginning of my name (cynicole..... get it?) One thing is for sure, that's that the Democratic Party has a messaging problem. It's been the [...]

10-1-21 Nicole Sandler Show – That Was the Week that Was with David Dayen

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   Well, it certainly was a week. On Monday I told you to strap in for a roller coaster ride... and now it's Friday and this ride really sucks. It's all so complicated, so I've invited one of the very best of the journalists who keeps me informed, David Dayen, executive editor of the American Prospect magazine to try to wrap up the week, such as it was, for us.

9-29-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Making Sausage the Washington Way with Zach Carter

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   The media likes to refer to Congress' attempts at legislating as "making the sausage". But it's actually a giant shit show. If you want to be disillusioned by government. But I thought I'd use the sausage making analogy because it's sufficiently disgusting. Zach Carter, whose book The Price of Peace: Money, Democracy and the Life of John Maynard Keynes is now available in paperback was today's guest. In addition to his new newsletter that you should subscribe to, he had an op-ed [...]

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) The old adage goes "Democrats, snatching defeat from the jaws of victory." Sadly it becomes more true with each passing day. But everything is on the line right now. And if the Congressional Democrats can't get the president's signature Build Back Better plan passed, it's our own fault. Today, we'll review what's going on and where we are right now. I'll also explain some of the other things that slipping through our fingers, and why. And we'll open the phones too for your [...]

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   Game of Thrones gave us "bend the knee." Colin Kaepernick showed us the meaning of taking a knee. My favorite sports journalist Dave Zirin has always reported on the intersection of sports and politics, and this is right in his wheelhouse. His new book, The Kaepernick Effect: Taking a Knee, Changing the World examines how Kap's private protest turned into a global cry for justice, pointing a finger directly at the horrific treatment of Black men and women at the hands of [...]

The weekend was filled with memories, both of that awful day and the days surrounding it. Life changed. We were all affected by the events of that day, and still are. Some of the ways are only now becoming apparent. Today, I welcome Katrina vanden Heuvel, Publisher and Editorial Director of The Nation, back to the show. It's been a while [...]

And there's a lot of it to talk about today. Cuomo is out, Hochul is the new governor of NY. Perhaps I'll ask Laffy for an update on California's upcoming recall election. It looks like the conservadems and progressives in the House have made a deal and they will pass the budget resolution as well as the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act. Afghanistan's still a mess [...]
