6-20-22 Nicole Sandler Show – It’s Juneteenth, Still Waiting for the Change to Come

  Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   Today is a federal holiday. It's Juneteenth, a holiday that commemorates the day the last still-enslaved African Americans were made aware they had been emancipated. Freedom Day is how some refer to this day. And though that's a nice sentiment, it's still aspirational. Like many others I'm sure, I thought we had come further than we actually did. But then again, I'm a white woman. I know one thing, and that's that I can't know what it is like to be [...]

2-1-22 Nicole Sandler Show – February, Florida and other F Words

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) I know one F word that I've uttered already numerous times today. I've blurted it out in reaction to the latest idiocy from the Floriduh governor and from The Former Guy and others of their ilk. Here's one tweet that really sums it up today, from @AymanM: - fmr President admits he wanted to overturn election - vows to pardon insurrectionists - incites racism & protests against Black prosecutors - the FBI acknowledges a series of bomb threats around the country - books [...]

4-14-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Out of Afghanistan and More with Digby

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)     Digby is my guest today. She wrote a great post (up at both digbysblog.net and Salon.com) about Joe Biden announcing we'll have our troops out of Afghanistan by 9/11, the 20th anniversary of that attack. I began the show talking about a few recent incidents of blatant racism, one of them featured a drill sergeant from Fort Jackson in South Carolina, attacking a young black man for simply walking down the sidewalk. It's showtime! Click to watch/listen and find out why [...]

6-10-20 Nicole Sandler Show – Our Surveillance State with Jason Leopold

Download here or click below to play   The House Judiciary Committee today held a hearing on racial profiling and police brutality. It's long past due. Senate Republicans have promised their own police reform legislation, though their original deadline of Friday to release their plan has been scrapped. On the other side of the issue is the Dept of Justice, who's fighting incoming on a number of fronts today, which I'll detail during the program. Today's guest is Jason Leopold, senior investigative reporter for Buzzfeed News, who broke the story last week that the DEA was given sweeping new authority [...]

8-6-19 Nicole Sandler Show – The Aftermath with Tim Wise

   The nation is reeling today after two mass shootings this weekend, 13 hours apart. One in El Paso, TX, the second in Dayton, OH. 22 innocent souls were taken in El Paso by a guy with alleged racist tendencies, and another 9 were killed by a man with obvious psychological problems in Dayton. Today, I'm joined by Tim Wise. He's an author, educator, speaker, podcaster and more whose area of expertise is racism and the obliteration of it. It should be a fascinating conversation today. During the first part of the show, I spoke about an article I [...]

8-15-17 Nicole Sandler Show – Don’t Call Them Alt-Right with GottaLaff

Each Tuesday, GottaLaff joins in to talk about the news of the week. And if ever there was a day we needed some laughs, it's today in the wake of the weekend's Charlottesville protests. Both Laffy and I have a problem with the term "Alt-Right" as a normalizing way to identify white supremacists, Nazis, Ku Klux Klan members and the rest of the racists that went into Charlottesville Friday night and Saturday.
