10-11-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Looking for Answers with Dave Johnson

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) I really tried to unplug this weekend and remove myself from politics, news and the rest of the insanity that's stressing me out during the week. I was somewhat successful, but big questions keep cutting through the calm. I had stopped watching Bill Maher, as he finally completed his long-in-the-works jumping of the shark last week when he defended the vaccine and mask deniers. So I didn't watch him Friday night. But his warning about what's in store for us pierced my peaceful [...]

9-27-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Holding the Crooks Accountable with Jennifer Taub

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   It's Monday, the start of what will be a busy and consequential week on Capitol Hill. It's a sausage-making festival, and won't be fun to watch. But there's so much on the line. Running concurrent to what the legislators are doing is an investigation into the former guy and his minions who've been working to overturn a free and fair election, thus undermining our entire democracy. Sadly the latter is getting very little serious attention. Last week, we saw a six-point plan [...]

9-17-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Friday with George Washington & Nathaniel Philbrick

  Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   I've made no secret of the fact that, despite being quite nervous about Joe Biden as the nominee and then president, I've been pleasantly surprised so far. Obviously, I have complaints, but when I compare him to the other presidents during my lifetime, so far, so good! There have been a few books published recently about #1, George Washington himself. I'm intrigued by the men who've taken on the biggest job in the country, especially seeing how absolutely flawed those who've [...]

8-11-21 Nicole Sandler Show – A Bunch O’ News with Will Bunch

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) Yesterday was probably the busiest news day on a Tuesday in August that I can remember. So we have a lot of ground to cover today. It's been a while since we've checked in with Will Bunch. He's a national columnist at the Philadelphia Inquirer.  Will's latest column touches on the devastating IPCC Climate Report, the new revelations about how close Trump came to a successful coup, the first testimony heard by the special select committee on January 6 and more. I'll also [...]

7-28-21 Nicole Sandler Show – He Alone Sure Broke It

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) We're living through horribly dysfunctional times. I won't say that if not for Trump, things would be all peachy keen. But I do believe they'd be a lot better than the shit storm we're still experiencing, due to him. And unfortunately, just because he's no longer in office, he's still able to do damage. Today, I speak with Philip Rucker of the Washington Post. He and Carol Leonnig just released their second book about the former guy's time in office. They titled the [...]

7-23-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Covid, Cancer & Trump with Michael C. Bender

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   Five years ago this week my world turned upside down. It was a dark time, as Donald Trump's campaign -for the first time- looked more serious than the bad joke it should have been. While contemplating the possibility of the orange conman as our next president, I got some devastating news. I'll share that with you at the top of today's show, knowing that the outcome was better than anything I could have hoped for that day five years ago. COVID is [...]

6-30-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Opposite World Thrives and Jeff Sharlet Too

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)     I often return to the theme of opposite world, where we appear to be stuck. That Bill Cosby walked out of prison today, his conviction overturned, is proof that we're in opposite world. Hearing Republican members of Congress explain why a commission investigating the January 6 insurrection is unnecessary, seeing the former guy at the border pretending to be in a position of authority, Jim Clyburn again working to sabotage the campaign of a progressive Democrat... I could keep going, but [...]

6-4-21 The Nicole Sandler Show – Insurrectionist & Traitor Update with Marcy Wheeler

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)     There have been over 450 arrests of participants in the Jan 6 attack on the Capitol, from "Maga Tourists" to ringleaders. The one person reporting on what's happening in these individual cases is Marcy Wheeler who, these days, is living in Ireland! But she's still doing better reporting on what's happening with these arrests and prosecutions than anyone else, which you can find at emptywheel.net. Marcy joins us today from Ireland. Here's today's comedy from J-L Cauvin and Bruce W. Nelson, [...]

5-27-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Battle For The Soul with Edward-Isaac Dovere

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)     The book on the 2020 election is out and it's a page-turner. Today, I chat with Edward-Isaac Dovere, author of Battle for the Soul: Inside the Democrats' Campaigns To Defeat Trump. I'm able to read this book because I know how it ended. That didn't stop my blood pressure from rising when I started reading it. It was election night 2016 and, for the first time, we learn how both Joe Biden and Barack Obama received the news that Donald Trump [...]

5-5-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Facebook, Trump and our Broken Media

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   Facebook's Oversight Board today announced that Donald Trump's suspension will continue for the next six months, after which time, we do this again, perhaps? Tim Karr of FreePress.net joins us at the top of the show to help unpack what this means. While we have Tim, we'll get an update on other issues we used to cover extensively like net neutrality and the FCC. Needless to say, there's a lot to talk about! I did share a few funnies from our friends [...]
