It's been another crazy, news-filled week in America. Nicole welcomes comedian, broadcaster and senior correspondent at act.tv, Julianna Forlano back to the show to look back on the week that might mark the end of the beginning of the Trump-Russia probe...maybe. See the video Julianna shot at Trump Tower yesterday where a group read the new children's book "Goodnight Trump"
Nicole Sandler begins the show as usual, with an update on the news of the day. Then she's joined by comedian and commentator Julianna Forlano of act.tv. Check out her latest article at democrats.com.
Act.TV's Julianna Forlano is covering protests this week in NYC and joins in to talk about them and more today with Nicole Sandler. Here's Julianna at yesterday's May Day rally and march in New York. This Saturday, she'll be covering the NYC Cannabis Parade. She did warn us that our political climate is working to outlaw our freedom to protest and assemble.
Tomorrow marks one year since Donald Trump was sworn in as president. Sunday is the anniversary of the massive Women's March that happened all over the world to push back.

Friend of the show Julianna Forlano returned today to talk about the march in NYC which she'll be covering live for act.tv, and a year with Trump in the White House... Here's Julianna's article, 5 Good Reasons for [...]
I'm still stunned by the events in Charlottesville this weekend, and absolutely floored by D'ump's press conference yesterday in which he blamed the counter protesters for the violence. I took some listener calls, and read another great editorial by Washington Post conservative blogger Jennifer Rubin, "Republicans, cut the outrage. It’s time to disown Trump." Julianna Forlano joined in to tell us about seeing Michael Moore's Terms of My Surrender on Broadway and trying to remain calm in the face of creeping fascism. I mentioned the Vice coverage of the Charlottesville mess, and promised to post it here. Please watch it. [...]
There are shakeups in the White House with Anthony Scaramucci in as Communications Director and Sean Spicer out as Press Secretary. And Julianna Forlano returns to the show.
Friday's show is now posted. Sorry for the delay. I'm juggling a lot of balls these days. Julianna Forlano joined in during the first hour, helping me recap the Democratic National Convention. Although the speech by Khizr Khan, the father of a Muslim soldier killed while fighting for the US, was certainly the most amazing moment of the convention... I still marvel at the brilliance of Rev. Dr. William Barber. I hope every hypocritical Republican who claims to have the moral high ground got to hear him. I spoke with a couple of Bernie delegates, including my attorney Bruce [...]
It's finally Friday, after a long, exhausting week. Not only were our nation's most troubled people on display for the whole world to ogle, the lead sociopath could very well be elected President of the United States. Opposite world, indeed. The Republican convention finally ended last night, and next week it's on to Philly. We'll be checking in with our Bernie delegates on the ground to give us the scoop on what goes on inside the arena. In the first hour of today's show, I ran through some of the more surreal moments from the GOP confab, with an [...]
I usually love Fridays. They mean the weekend is here. But when you're dealing with medical uncertainty, it's another 48 hours in a dead zone. Nothing will happen until Monday. Today, we learned that the company who takes my money every month and in return is supposed to pay my medical bills DENIED my doctor's order for a PET-CT scan to find out what this mass is on my left lung. DENIED. So, I'm going in first thing Monday morning for a regular old CAT scan that, according to my doctor, will NOT give him the info he needs to [...]
That's my daughter carrying that awesome sign that reads "History says change happens. Make some!" She was probably 12 years old at the Occupy Ft. Lauderdale march that I dragged her to with me at the height of the Occupy movement. Just look how far we've come since then. Today, we talked about making history as we're making history. Boca Britany Somers joined us in the new studios today as our first in-studio guest! She's welcome any time, but since there was major news for the transgender community and the rest of the world this week, I invited Brit in to [...]
