It was an exciting day at our studios today, as The Randi Rhodes Show officially returned to our radios, er, devices. We're still working out some of the bugs, but here we are, at the dawning of a new media era. Her show follows mine each afternoon, so just stay tuned! I hope you'll listen and support both shows because without you, we're just talking into thin air... As I was driving up to the studio today, FBI Director James Comey appeared at the podium to announce the results of their investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server [...]
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 [...]
It was a busy second full day in our new studios at my new time. And with the commute up to Delray Beach, and the engineer in house doing some final tweaking, it was a looong day. So sorry for getting the details of today's show posted so late. But better late than never! Brad Friedman, who's been covering election issues for over a decade at The Brad Blog and for the past year or so on his BradCast (heard here on The Nicole Sandler Show stream weekday evenings at 8pm Eastern/ 5 Pacific) joined me to give his journalistic [...]

Last night, Congress proved themselves incapable of taking care of the nation's business in an adult manner. Four amendments were brought to the floor, all with various levels of restrictions on gun purchases by people who should not be allowed near a firearm, let alone own one. All four went down to defeat. I'm battling bronchitis, so probably shouldn't have come on the air at all today, but I couldn't let those votes go by without talking about the travesty. Vote out all the bums. If you'd like to see who the bad guys are you can start with Sen [...]
