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 [...]

5-17-21 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 [...]

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 [...]

Fast Food Forward Thursday

Something strange and wonderful is happening today in New York City.  Workers who toil for slave wages at fast food restaurants around the city are staging a one-day strike to raise awareness of the conditions under which they toil.  It's all under the umbrella of Fast Food Forward. The website, on which you can sign up to stand in solidarity with these underpaid workers, has some great information: We can't survive on $7.25! In America, people who work hard should be able to afford basic necessities like groceries, rent, childcare and transportation. While fast food corporations reap the benefits of [...]

Another Superfluous War

The following article was written by Israeli Peace Movement Gush Shalom founder Uri Avnery, and was originally published here. I wanted to post it here because I think it's the best thing I've read from an Israeli about the horrific practice of bombing one another into oblivion instead of fixing the problems that divide us.  Hopefully someone with power to do the right thing will read it and heed its call. HOW DID it start? Stupid question. Conflagrations along the Gaza Strip don’t start. They are just a continuous chain of events, each claimed to be in “retaliation” for the [...]
