10-12-22 Nicole Sandler Show – Four Weeks Out Jeff Sharlet Weighs In

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   One of the best parts of this job is that I get to speak with some amazing people. I first met Jeff Sharlet over a decade ago when I interviewed him for his brilliant book, "The Family: The Secret Fundamentalism at the Heart of American Power." The book, and the one that followed, C Street: The Fundamentalist Threat to American Democracy are the basis of the Netflix series, "The Family." They detail the very secretive but omnipresent religious group that somehow straddles [...]

1-7-22 Nicole Sandler Show – One Week Down, Jeff Sharlet Returns

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) We made it through the first week of 2022, but the country seems to be further divided than ever. And the other side is delusional, claiming that January 6, 2021 was just another day. We'll continue reviewing some of yesterday's madness on today's show, and then welcome Jeff Sharlet back to the show. Jeff is a Dartmouth professor, a journalist who got inside The Family (and C Street) and wrote two books, subsequently the basis of a Netflix docuseries about the religious organization [...]

6-30-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Opposite World Thrives and Jeff Sharlet Too

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)     I often return to the theme of opposite world, where we appear to be stuck. That Bill Cosby walked out of prison today, his conviction overturned, is proof that we're in opposite world. Hearing Republican members of Congress explain why a commission investigating the January 6 insurrection is unnecessary, seeing the former guy at the border pretending to be in a position of authority, Jim Clyburn again working to sabotage the campaign of a progressive Democrat... I could keep going, but [...]

3-17-21 Nicole Sandler Show – A Year Lost to Covid with Jeff Sharlet

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   Today marks one year since Covid-19 was officially found in every one of the 50 United States, just days before we went into an almost complete lockdown to try to stop its spread. Obviously, the US didn't do a great job, as we've lost more than half a million lives in the US alone, and it's still killing people. Unfortunately, too many don't take the situation seriously enough and spring break is likely to bring about yet another surge. Just when we're [...]

6-24-20 Nicole Sandler Show – Jeff Sharlet explains the Cult of Trump

Download here or click below to play   It's another crazy, busy news day in America... We'll bring you up to date on what's happening, as far as I can explain it! Today's guest is author and professor Jeff Sharlet. The man who gave us The Family about the very creepy religious zealotry rampant in Washington DC reports from some of Trump's rallies, and fills us in on the levels of crazy embraced by his followers, a story he wrote for Vanity Fair in a piece titled "Inside the Cult of Trump". Today's funny was more poignant than funny, from [...]

4-15-20 Nicole Sandler Show – Getting Personal with Jeff Sharlet

Download here or click below to play   After Bernie Sanders dropped his presidential bid last week, I read a perfectly-pitched rant from author/journalist/college professor Jeff Sharlet that articulated much of what I was feeling. I didn't have time to read the whole thing on the show today, so here it is, as Jeff wrote it on Facebook I had been meaning to invite Jeff Sharlet back to the show to discuss his new book, This Brilliant Darkness anyway-- so we'll discuss all of that and much more today! As usual, we start the show with something funny, and bring [...]

2-10-17 Nicole Sandler Show – One More for the Road

I'm leaving on vacation after today's show... "Boca" Britany Somers will fill in while I'm gone. Today, Jeff Sharlet, author of C Street, The Family and other books and articles is our guest. The article he wrote in GQ about being gay in Putin's Russia is at "Inside the Iron Closet: What It's Like to Be Gay in Putin's Russia". I'm headed down to Tulum, Mexico for yoga, mediation and to regroup... At the end of the show, I read a paragraph sent to me by listener Robert in NY, and it's actually what this vacation is all about. We should all take [...]

3-12-15 Nicole Sandler Show – It’s (Still) a Man’s World

Today, Nicole Sandler sadly revisits the topic of bigotry. Racism, sexism and other isms... The shooting of 2 police officers in Ferguson tops the news. Jeff Sharlet on his latest for GQ, a piece about the Mens Rights Movement. And, as it's still Women't History Month, She's History's Amy Simon tells us about the history of Black women in Congress, and more...
