9-2-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Welcome to Gilead 2.0 with Lisa Graves & Howie Klein

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   It's Thursday, the day we get together with Howie Klein of Down with Tyranny and the Blue America PAC. We'll have a serious discussion today about the failure of the Democratic Party to stop the American Taliban's takeover of our country. Yes, I'm referring to the Orwellian law that went into effect in Texas, now with the Trump-packed Supreme Court's seal of approval. It not only criminalizes abortion in the state, but deputizes random idiots to target women who are even considering [...]

3-2-21 Nicole Sandler Show – A Pox on Fox and a Takedown by Vox’ Aaron Rupar

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   I tried to rhyme the title of today's episode, a la Dr. Seuss, for reasons that should shortly become apparent. Fox not news and their ideological brethren are all freaked out today, claiming that Nancy Pelosi and the Dems have "cancelled" Dr. Seuss. Obviously, the truth is nothing of the sort.. it's not even a distant relative. Today's guest, Aaron Rupar of Vox (with a V) will help me set that record straight today. Aaron somehow manages to monitor the right wing [...]
