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. Read David's article, "The Progressive Caucus Wields Power," then listen to our conversation. [...]

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!)   Today is part two in our series of Democratic challengers hoping to replace the man occupying the Governor's office in Tallahassee. Following last week's appearance by Nikki Fried, today Charlie Crist joins the show. We'll talk about what he learned from holding that office the first time. And what now makes him a Democrat, as opposed to the Republican he was the first time he held the office he once again aspires to. He joins us at the top of the show. [...]

9-23-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Democratic Party Clusterf*^ck

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 [...]

9-22-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Taking a Knee for Justice with Dave Zirin

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 [...]

9-13-21 Nicole Sandler Show – The Times Are A Changing with Katrina vanden Heuvel

  Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   It's been 20 years since 9/11. In many ways, it feels like a moment. In others, it's a lifetime removed. 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 [...]

8-24-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Tuesdays with GottaLaff

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   Laffy's here today, so we'll bring you the news, by way of her Twitter feed. 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 [...]

8-13-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Friday the 13th without Reinstatement with David Sirota

  Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   Today is the day that we were told Donald Trump would be reinstated as president. We heard it from the pillow guy, MAGA world and Trump's sycophantic followers. It also happens to be Friday the 13th, so if Trump ever were to enter the Oval Office again, Friday the 13th would be the appropriate day for it to happen. But it won't. That doesn't stop them from proclaiming it as fact. We live in strange times when otherwise intelligent people spew [...]

8-11-21 Nicole Sandler Show – A Bunch O’ News with Will Bunch

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) Yesterday was probably the busiest news day on a Tuesday in August that I can remember. So we have a lot of ground to cover today. It's been a while since we've checked in with Will Bunch. He's a national columnist at the Philadelphia Inquirer.  Will's latest column touches on the devastating IPCC Climate Report, the new revelations about how close Trump came to a successful coup, the first testimony heard by the special select committee on January 6 and more. I'll also [...]

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   The month of August used to be slow. Everything shut down. But there's no such thing as a slow news day anymore. Today, we have a lot of ground to cover. We'll begin with Infrastructure legislation. As Joe Biden said, "After years and years of infrastructure week, we are on the cusp of infrastructure decade." And it has begun... Then we move to Resignation... Andrew Cuomo's resignation, to be precise. And we'll finish with Mitigation. That's the buzzword as we must finally [...]
