7-5-21 Nicole Sandler Show – A Conversation about Peace with Yossi Klein Halevi

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)     Last month, as hostilities between Israel and the Palestinians were raging, I attempted a conversation with someone with whom I had great difficulty finding common ground. Unfortunately, I quickly realized that he was the wrong person to attempt to talk about achieving peace in the Middle East, as he was all to eager to assign all of the blame to one side. So I kept exploring, looking for someone who was willing to step back and see the other side's perspective. [...]

5-24-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Turn Away from Hate, Before It’s Too Late

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)     It's a new week, with the same ugly shit rearing its head. That people around the world don't know the difference between a Zionist and a Jew is sad, but unfortunately also prevalent in our world where televised lies are presented as "news" and education is not a priority. The reports of attacks on Jews around the nation are surging and it's terrifying. This on top of the recent escalation of violence against Asian Americans. And the targeting of Black and [...]

5-19-21 Nicole Sandler Show – What Is It Good For? Absolutely Nothing!

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)     Today, we're talking about war. As the song says, it's good for absolutely nothing, yet we seem to be in a never-ending series of wars. All eyes today are on Israel and the Palestinians in Gaza, and the situation seems to be getting worse. I'll check in with Ron Skolnik, an American-Israeli writer and communications consultant for Partners for Progressive Israel (and an elementary school classmate of mine) for some perspective on what's going on over there. Then we'll turn to [...]

5-17-21 Nicole Sandler Show – I Got Them Old Monday Blues Again

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)     Some of those old Monday blues are sneaking back in. I had been feeling so much better since the former guy was evicted from the White House, and had been almost tumescent that Joe Biden was doing so much better than I had expected, so I was bound to feel a big letdown, but this is ridiculous. From the bombing and imminent war between Israel and the Palestinians in Gaza, to Biden's latest hires and a few other pesky problem, I'm [...]

12-14-20 Nicole Sandler Show – Deciphering those Israeli ‘Peace’ Deals and Spreading Truth

Download here or click below to play   It's a busy Monday! The electors in the Electoral College are today cast their votes, making Joe Biden's victory official. Meanwhile, Trump and his minions continue spreading lies. A new campaign is beginning called Fact Flood. We'll speak with Debra Lavoy, the founder of the project, which you can learn more about at factflood.org . But first, we'll speak with Adam Kellner, co-founder of Israel's Gush Shalom Peace Movement about the so-called peace deals the Trump administration is rolling out. We'll dispel quite a few common misconceptions about Israel. I promise you, [...]

9-18-19 Nicole Sandler Show – Climate Week is Here and Bibi May Be Out

 Israel went to the polls yesterday, and the race is too close to call. But it looks like Bibi will be out as Prime Minister of Israel after 5 terms. Nicole called a hotel in Tel Aviv to connect with an Israeli citizen to get their thoughts on the news. Click on the link for the Trip Adviser page for The Vera hotel. If I ever get there and can afford $265 a night, that's where I'll stay! Then we turn our attention to Climate Week and this Friday's Global Climate Strike, which kicks it all off. 350.org's North [...]

8-20-19 Nicole Sandler Show – Zionism, Israel and Palestine, Oh My!

   With the news this week of the president urging the Prime Minister of Israel to ban two sitting members of Congress from visiting that country is just the latest salvo in Trump's war on Democrats, and more specifically, The Squad. So, today, we'll tackle a topic that's long overdue -- that of Israel, the Palestinians, BDS, settlements, and more. To talk through the basics and get into the meat of the controversy, Nicole is joined by someone she went to grade school with in NY- Ron Skolnik, an American-Israeli political analyst, writer, editor, public speaker and translator. Hopefully, [...]

8-16-19 Nicole Sandler Show – 50 Years Later We Could Use Three Days of Peace and Music

   Fifty years ago today was day two of the Woodstock Festival of Music and Art. Billed as Three Days of Peace and Music, it was just what the times demanded. Unfortunately, we seem unable to re-create that moment in time. We'll look back on that time, mark the death of Elvis Presley on this date in 1977, and explore what's happening in the news today. Our interview today is with Jim Lardner, who has a piece up in the American Prospect asking, "Have Democrats Forgotten How to Do Oversight?" It's a really important question with some actionable advice [...]

8-15-19 Nicole Sandler Show – Thursdays with Howie Klein

   It's another Thursday in D'ump's AmeriKKKa. At the (p)resident's urging, Israel banned two sitting US Congress members from entering Israel. We'll begin with the rest of the day's insanity, including news of a detention guard intentionally driving his truck into a row of protesters in Rhode Island.  Seriously. Today on the show, I spoke with attorney Jared Goldstein, who was there last night. For more information on this protest and the group behind it, visit neveragainaction.com. Since it's Thursday, we'll also visit with Howie Klein of Down with Tyranny and the Blue America PAC. Tomorrow on [...]
