Emptywheel Fridays on the Nicole Sandler Show 5-24-24

     We made it through another eventful week in the most insane decade of my life, and I'm old. We celebrate Fridays because the weekend is here, but not before we recap some of the news made during the week that's ending. It seems that each week these days is more outlandish than the one before, and this one is no different. Among the news and stories that Emptywheel.net's Marcy Wheeler and I discussed today are the complete mess that is the Supreme Court. ProPublica this week confirmed and shared photographic proof that Justice Samuel Alito flew a [...]

Emptywheel Fridays on the Nicole Sandler Show – 5-17-24

Today's show will go live at 5pm ET/2PT (I'm out on a musical weekend... see you Monday!)   https://open.spotify.com/episode/6Ju19ftMJcWiVurqm0w3OL   Every Friday I'm joined by the brilliant Marcy Wheeler from emptywheel.net to recap most of the important news of the week.... Today we talk the Trump trial and the show of Republican members of Congress skipping out on their jobs  to do Dear Leader's bidding at a NYC courthouse, some even making implicit terror threats (looking at you Matt Gaetz)... there's the fascist proclivities of SCOTUS (in) justice Alito, journalistic lack of integrity, disorder in the House and lots more...

Emptywheel Friday with Marcy Wheeler on the Nicole Sandler Show – SCOTUS Screwed Us Edition 4-26-24

   Each Friday, Marcy Wheeler takes a break from writing at emptywheel.net to join me for a conversation about what happened that week. This week was insane, and ended at the Supreme Extreme Court. That hearing consumed much of today's show, with a few minutes at the end dealing with Trump's current criminal trial, underway in Manhattan.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CZ3LJJ0rcyA

Emptywheel Fridays on the Nicole Sandler Show 4-19-24

Each Friday, we get to spend an hour with Marcy Wheeler of emptywheel.net for a conversation about much of what happened that week. This week was pretty remarkable in that Donald Trump is finally on trial for some of his crimes. By the time we finished recording this morning, the entire jury and six alternates had been seated. It appears that opening statements are possible on Monday. Stay tuned... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QBr4xMP-Y1M

Emptywheel Fridays on the Nicole Sandler Show 4-12-24

I am honored that the independent national security journalist Marcy Wheeler, whose original reporting you can find at emptywheel.net, joins me on my show every Friday for an hour-long discussion of the news that matters and, for the most part, hasn't been reported accurately or with enough urgency elsewhere. Today, in addition to preparing for Monday's beginning of jury selection in the NY fraud case involving the payoff to Stormy Daniels, I was thrilled to be able to congratulate Marcy for her journalistic prowess! She went the extra mile to intervene in a CIPA case in 2022 that now [...]

It’s Emptywheel Friday on the Nicole Sandler Show 4-5-24

   We couldn't end the week and usher in the weekend properly without a visit from Marcy Wheeler of emptywheel.net. As she does each Friday, Marcy will walk us through the latest developments in Trump Trial World, including the batshit whack-a-doodle-ness of Judge Aileen Cannon who is doing TFG's bidding so much to his liking that he publicly promised her a Supreme Court nod if he's somehow re-elected. As someone suggested last week, the subtitle of this show is "You can't make this shit up!" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=npEM065Ckak
