8-9-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Dept of Injustice with Marcy Wheeler

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)     The US Department of Justice has been walking a tightrope for years now. While promising Equal Justice Under the Law, it more realistically offers a system of Injustice and Inequality. Throughout the Trump term, the DOJ struggled to maintain any semblance of integrity. And in the final days of his presidency, the former guy attempted a coup, using the Attorney General to do his dirty work. Details of just how close we came to losing our democracy are now coming to [...]

7-27-21 Nicole Sandler Show – The Select Committee on 1/6 First Hearing Is In the Books

  Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   Devastating is the word that best describes the testimony by four police officers who helped protect the Capitol from the insurrectionists on January 6. Although we knew what happened and had already heard from some of these officers, today's testimony was - well- devastating. And really sad. Today, I'll share my thoughts and lots of audio/video from today's hearing. Then we'll check in with Carolina Ampudia, the newly-elected president of the Democratic Progressive Caucus of Florida. She took over just in [...]

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)     The Supreme Court wrapped up the current term this morning by issuing its two final rulings. They saved the biggest and most damaging for last. Lisa Graves of True North Research, a former Deputy Assistant Attorney General under Clinton, joins in at the top of the show to explain the ramifications of the court's decisions on our voting rights and the continuation of dark money in politics. By the way, Lisa and the True North gang just launched a news Substack [...]

6-4-21 The Nicole Sandler Show – Insurrectionist & Traitor Update with Marcy Wheeler

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)     There have been over 450 arrests of participants in the Jan 6 attack on the Capitol, from "Maga Tourists" to ringleaders. The one person reporting on what's happening in these individual cases is Marcy Wheeler who, these days, is living in Ireland! But she's still doing better reporting on what's happening with these arrests and prosecutions than anyone else, which you can find at emptywheel.net. Marcy joins us today from Ireland. Here's today's comedy from J-L Cauvin and Bruce W. Nelson, [...]

5-12-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Covid a Year Later and Nice Insurrection You Got There

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)     Today, I welcome John M. Barry back the show a year after he first appeared. He's the author of The Great Influenza: The Story of the Deadliest Pandemic in History, about the 1918 Spanish Flu. He wrote an op-ed for the Washington Post on Monday, "The 1918 pandemic tells us that we can’t celebrate the end of covid yet." Today, we get an update from him on how our COVID pandemic compares to the 1918 Spanish flu. But we begin the [...]

3-2-21 Nicole Sandler Show – A Pox on Fox and a Takedown by Vox’ Aaron Rupar

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   I tried to rhyme the title of today's episode, a la Dr. Seuss, for reasons that should shortly become apparent. Fox not news and their ideological brethren are all freaked out today, claiming that Nancy Pelosi and the Dems have "cancelled" Dr. Seuss. Obviously, the truth is nothing of the sort.. it's not even a distant relative. Today's guest, Aaron Rupar of Vox (with a V) will help me set that record straight today. Aaron somehow manages to monitor the right wing [...]

2-11-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Impeachment 2.0, Day 3 (We’re watching so you don’t have to)

Download here or click below to play   It's the third day of the second impeachment trial of Donald Trump. Today, we're going to do something similar to what we did yesterday. We'll carry it live for however long it's on during today's show from 5-6pm ET, and I'll share some of the highlights of what happened earlier today. And perhaps we'll be able to get to some other news too... I don't know why I use the Royal "we"... it's just me. And you. But I did bring in some comic relief, because we really needed the laughs today. [...]

2-8-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Impeachment Eve Deja Vu

Download here or click below to play   Here we are, it's the eve of the second impeachment trial of Donald Trump. It's the first time any president - past or current- has ever been impeached twice. Today on the show, some background that you should know before the trial begins. I played a few clips from the "Special Order" Hour put together by Alexandria Ocasio Cortez on Thursday night, in which members of Congress told their stories about January 6. Here's most of the hour of testimony, should you care to watch. https://youtu.be/T81u6Q-8cWo I also played a clip of [...]

2-5-21 Nicole Sandler Show – The First 17 Days of Biden with David Dayen

Download here or click below to play   We've come to the end of the second full week of the Biden-Harris administration and I admit to being pleasantly surprised. Perhaps it's just such a huge difference from the insanity we lived in and under for the last four years that it just feels so much better. Today, I'll go to an objective source. David Dayen is executive editor of The American Prospect.     TAP was always a good magazine, but it's gotten even better since Dayen joined last year. At prospect.org, they're running a comprehensive series on the First 100 Days [...]

2-2-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Another Tuesday with @GottaLaff (and We Almost Lost AOC!)

Download here or click below to play     Things are getting better, but not quickly enough for my preference. Some things still just don't make sense... It's a good thing that it's Tuesday and GottaLaff is here, because we have lots to talk about. One thing that kept both Laffy and me awake last night (separately) was AOC's account of the events leading up to and the day of January 6. Yes, we'll have lots to say about that too. Obviously, I couldn't play the entirety of AOC's Instagram Live as it went for about 90 minutes. But I [...]
