Onward to Charlotte

Listen to this episode: {play}http://traffic.libsyn.com/radioornot/20120903_Nicole_Sandler_Show_-_Onward_to_Charlotte.mp3 {/play} Podcast: Play in new window   After a painful week watching the Republicans lie their way through a national convention, I'm hoping the Democrats just tell the truth.  It shouldn't be that difficult. After all, most of the Democratic Party platform is good, at least when it comes to women, immigrants, seniors, healthcare needs and more of what today's GOP doesn't seem to care about.  And I don't say that lightly... all one needs to do is read the GOP party platform. (You can find my quickie analysis and links to both full platforms [...]

Dueling Platforms

Last week we shuddered as we read the ideals the Republican Party stands for as they released the official 2012 Republican Party Platform.  Talk about a giant leap backwards...  Courtesy of ThinkProgress, here are some of the standout parts: NO ABORTION IN CASES OF RAPE OR INCEST. The proposal for a “human life amendment”passed without a hitch — and without any exceptions for rape or incest. The committee didn’t stop there; they also adopted language that would ban drugs that end pregnancy after conception, which could potentially include Plan B, the “morning after pill.” SALUTE TO MANDATORY ULTRASOUNDS. The GOP officially praises states’ “informed [...]

Down Memory Lane and Into the Future

And me. They guys to my left and my right are the famous (infamous) Mark and Brian with whom I spent four very busy, successful years as their producer. They signed off from their last broadcast two weeks ago tomorrow after 25 years together at KLOS.  While my four years as part of the show sounds like a drop in their massive bucket, it was a big part of my professional [...]

A Tale of Two Cities – With the Split Screen

Listen to this episode: {play}http://traffic.libsyn.com/radioornot/20120829_Nicole_Sandler_Show_-_RNC_lies.mp3 {/play} Podcast: Play in new window   There's your split screen image for today.  On the left, the photo tweeted by MSNBC's Melissa Harris-Perry with the description  Feeling sad. #Isaac took the home @JamesHPerry and I just bought. All safe. House was vacant except for my dreams. pic.twitter.com/h62AkGPB On the right is the scene in Tampa, where people bragged about praying the storm away.  Their party will continue tonight, as millions in the Gulf are fighting the elements to stay alive and keep what few possessions they have left. Today on the show, I gave an update [...]

Hurricanes, Truthers and the RNC

Listen to this episode: {play}http://traffic.libsyn.com/radioornot/20120828_Nicole_Sandler_Show_-_Harry_Shearer_on_Isaac_and_New_Orleans.mp3 {/play} Podcast: Play in new window   Isaac has just been upgraded to hurricane status and by tonight will likely be barreling down on New Orleans, as New Orleanians already prepare to mark the 7th anniversary of Katrina tomorrow.  The US Army Corps of Engineers says the $14 Billion of taxpayer money was spent by shoring up the levies, and that New Orleans is safer now than it's ever been.. the problem is that that isn't saying very much. I reached out to Harry Shearer, best known for his comedic turns in Spinal Tap and The [...]

Bad RNC Juju

Listen to this episode: {play}http://traffic.libsyn.com/radioornot/20120827_Nicole_Sandler_Show.mp3 {/play} Podcast: Play in new window That's the split-screen image I think we'll be seeing over the course of this week.. On the left side of your screen, the ominous charts and pictures of Issac - strengthening into a full-blown hurricane and barreling toward the Gulf Coast - most notably New Orleans as we mark the 7th anniversary of the devastation of Hurricane Katrina. The RNC powers were very short-sighted on their decision to cancel the convention activities today, while the storm is still out in the Gulf.  Tomorrow - as they begin their celebration of regression - millions [...]

The Plight of the Pre-Old

Listen to this episode: {play}http://traffic.libsyn.com/radioornot/20120822_Nicole_Sandler_Show.mp3 {/play} Podcast: Play in new window I am of the Pre-Old group.  We poor, unfortunate sots who are currently just under 55 who will be screwed (and not in a good way) if Paul Ryan and Mitt Romney have their way. Yes, they'd preserve Medicare benefits for our current seniors (or so they say), but those of us under that magical 55-year old mark will have "more choices".  (If you believe that I have some lovely swampland for sale just a few miles west of where I sit right now.) As much as the GOP [...]
