Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) Today's show will deal with the worst and the best of America. On the worst side, today's Republican Party, if there still is one. The Grand OId Party of the past has been replaced by the Gullible Old Propagandists who believe the bullshit spewed by and at them. Tomorrow marks the first anniversary of their attempted coup at the Capitol, an event about which they continue to lie, as they do with virtually every subject these days. At the top of the [...]

I know we'll talk about Paul Gosar's censure, the insanity that is today's GOP, the trial-palooza in progress. And I'll certainly ask Howie about his latest article posted at DownWithTyranny.com: "Many Voters No Longer See The Democrats As Even The Lesser Evil". These are scary times, indeed. I promised I'd post the rest of Bernie Sanders' floor speech today on why he's voting against the [...]
Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) We begin today's show with the latest on the Democrats' negotiations about the two infrastructure bills and President Biden's domestic agenda, and how two senators (Manhenema) are sabotaging it and the future of not only the Democratic Party, but democracy in the United States itself. Call me cynical... I may have to add the CY back to the beginning of my name (cynicole..... get it?) One thing is for sure, that's that the Democratic Party has a messaging problem. It's been the [...]
Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) Depending on who you ask, Democrats are either looking at disaster in the midterms or they'll wind up with massive majorities in both houses of Congress as the Republican party is killing itself slowly but surely. I finally spoke with famed civil rights attorney Guy Saperstein who these days is a major progressive Democratic donor who believes the next few elections will be huge for the Democrats as the Republican party goes the way of the dodo. We'll follow up that conversation [...]
Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) The second impeachment trial of Donald Trump is history, and the Biden administration is ready to move on. But the effects of Trump pervade almost every part of American life. Today, I'm joined by OG blogger Driftglass to get his perspective on American life in the post-Trump era (and whether or not it IS the post-Trump era). Check out the Professional Left Podcast, hosted by Driftglass and his awesome blogger wife, Blue Gal Fran But first, I've been troubled by the idea [...]
Download here or click below to play Oligarchy is the word of the day, brought to us by Thom Hartmann. He gives the subject his Hidden History treatment in his latest book, The Hidden History of American Oligarchy: Reclaiming Our Democracy from the Ruling Class. But first, a few other things that are out of whack are on Nicole's mind. Like the Rochester police pepper spraying a 9-year old girl who was handcuffed in the back seat of the squad car! Then the head of the police union claiming she wasn't hurt! How about we handcuff him and [...]
Blogger and podcaster Driftglass joins Nicole Sandler today to talk about the insanity in our world and what goes on at the NY Times' editorial page. Find Driftglass' blog here, and the Professional Left Podcast here.
Today, I'm thrilled to welcome my friend, media trainer and strategist, Joel Silberman to talk about politics, the future of healthcare, cancer and more. The website I gave out to use to call some of the more "moderate" Republicans most likely to vote against the GOP Wealthcare bill is TrumpcareToolkit.org. Please use it every day!
Today I'm joined by Gaius Publius who wrote at Down with Tyranny about our collapsing social contract. Kelly Carlin was supposed to be on today's show, but had to postpone due to a death in her family. We'll reschedule as soon as possible. In the meantime, check out the webinar she'll be hosting beginning next Wednesday!
