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 [...]

4-28-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Ratfucking Then & Now with Don Siegelman

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   Today, Rudy Giuliani's NYC apartment and office building were raided by the feds who seized a few electronic device. Trump employed the "ratfucking talents" of characters from Rudy Giuliani to Roger Stone. This is nothing new. Back in the late 90s early 2000s, Karl Rove was the ratfucker in chief. Today, one of Rove's biggest victims, former AL Governor Don Siegelman returns to the show. His book, Stealing Our Democracy, is now out as an audiobook, read by Gov. Siegelman himself. We [...]

2-24-21 Nicole Sandler Show – WTF GOP with Rick Perlstein

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   Lots of news to catch up with at the start of the show, as it's hearing time in Congress. I'll try to bring us up to speed on what's happened so far today. Then, I'm thrilled to welcome historian and author Rick Perlstein back to the show. His books are all about the rise of modern American conservatism. His newest book (soon to be out in paperback) Reaganland: America's Right Turn 1976-1980 ends with Reagan being sworn in as  POTUS. I'm thinking [...]

2-22-21 Nicole Sandler Show – And Justice for All? with Jennifer Taub

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)     Today kicks off a busy week in the US. Congress is back from its recess and that's good, as they have a lot of work to do. First up, Merrick Garland finally gets his hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee- but this time it's his confirmation hearing to be Attorney General under Joe Biden. Others will follow this week, but that one has been a long time coming. And heaven knows we need some equal justice under the law in this [...]

2-11-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Impeachment 2.0, Day 3 (We’re watching so you don’t have to)

Download here or click below to play   It's the third day of the second impeachment trial of Donald Trump. Today, we're going to do something similar to what we did yesterday. We'll carry it live for however long it's on during today's show from 5-6pm ET, and I'll share some of the highlights of what happened earlier today. And perhaps we'll be able to get to some other news too... I don't know why I use the Royal "we"... it's just me. And you. But I did bring in some comic relief, because we really needed the laughs today. [...]
