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 [...]
Bernie Sanders wrapped up a quick tour of Florida before heading out to Ohio, another of the states going to the polls on Tuesday. Julianna Forlano helps recap this long, strange week in politics. RL Miller tells who Climate Hawks Vote supporters voted to endorse. And we'll end the week with a Flashback Fri segment with David Byrne (pronounced Bern!)
Another ground-breaking GOP debate for the books last night. Nicole recaps and more with Julianna Forlano. We end the week with a Flashback Friday musical blast from Nicole's radio past. Today, in honor of Ben Folds joining the Sanders campaign, we'll listen back to Ben Folds Five's first Los Angeles radio appearance, with Nicole from Oct. 1995.
It's Friday, and Nicole is worn out from watching Bernie getting berated by Chris Matthews, and the mud wrestling posing as a presidential debate last night. But she'll talk about the state of the presidential race with Julianna Forlano. And for Flashback Friday, it's a conversation with Little Steven Van Zandt
Nicole Sandler wraps up another week with a busy show! Progressive consultant & strategist Mike Lux weighs in on the Democratic divide, and Julianna Forlano brings the snark!
Nicole Sandler wraps up a big week with a discussion of last night's GOP debate and the rest of the news. Julianna Forlano adds the humor to the otherwise depressing news. And for Flashback Fri, Nicole takes us back to 15 years ago tomorrow for her interview with David Gray, and then to March of 01 for a wonderful performance by Jeb Loy Nichols.
Nicole attempts another show after being sidelined due to computer issues yesterday. She recaps the latest toxic environmental news with Tim O'Connor of the Environmental Defense Fund. Zach Silk weighs in on guns, and tells us about his successful campaign to get universal background checks in Washington State. And Julianna Forlano helps lighten the mood.
Nicole Sandler continues her look back at 2015, covering a lot of ground today: Cliff Schecter joins in to talk guns, mass shootings and the Tamir Rice travesty; Amy Simon brings the state of women in 2015; Julianna Forlano helps shine a light on the absurd news of the year (and there's plenty of that!)
