12-19-22 Nicole Sandler Show – And That’s a (1-6 Select Committee) Wrap

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   It wasn't hearing, but a business meeting. Whatever you call it, today was the final public televised presentation from the House Select Committee investigating the January 6 attack on the Capitol. Today on the show, we'll review what the committee presented earlier and open the phones for your thoughts on the investigation and what happens next. https://youtu.be/Td1dMCzAAi4

12-5-22 Nicole Sandler Show – Another Monday with Marcy Emptywheel Wheeler

  Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   One thing you can say about life in the (sorry) Trump era (well, it sadly is), is that there's always shit hitting the wall somewhere. And when it's noise involving TFG, it is shit. Since the last time Marcy Wheeler was here (just three weeks ago), so much has happened. So today we'll get Marcy's take on the Oath Keepers seditious conspiracy guilty verdicts, Merrick Garland's appointment of a Special Counsel to take over all of the DoJ's Trump investigations, the [...]

11-14-22 Nicole Sandler Show – Marcy Monday Another Emptywheel Update

  Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) I've been consumed by the midterm elections for the past few weeks. Now that it's (almost) all over, it's time to figure out what's been happening with the numerous investigations into the former guy and his sycophantic insurrectionist followers. For that, we turn to Marcy Wheeler, independent journalist extraordinaire, who covers it all at emptywheel.net.  And you can now find her on Mastadon too, @emptywheel@mastodon.social. Lots to talk about today from the elections to Merrick Garlands progress, to the 1-6 committee and [...]

10-12-22 Nicole Sandler Show – Four Weeks Out Jeff Sharlet Weighs In

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   One of the best parts of this job is that I get to speak with some amazing people. I first met Jeff Sharlet over a decade ago when I interviewed him for his brilliant book, "The Family: The Secret Fundamentalism at the Heart of American Power." The book, and the one that followed, C Street: The Fundamentalist Threat to American Democracy are the basis of the Netflix series, "The Family." They detail the very secretive but omnipresent religious group that somehow straddles [...]

10-3-22 Nicole Sandler Show – FOIA Master Jason Leopold Strikes Again

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   Welcome to the first Monday in October. As happens every year on this day, the Supreme Court began a new session. For the first time in history, a Black woman is sitting on the bench as an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court. Ketanji Brown Jackson making her debut today, asking more questions than Clarence Thomas did in the entire decade leading up to Antonin Scalia's death. (And with more substance in her first round of questioning than he ever displayed, but [...]

9-22-22 Nicole Sandler Show – Thursdays with Howie Klein

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   Yesterday had to have broken some kind of record for most breaking news in one day. Today, we'll go over much of what happened. Then it's Howie Klein time again. The man behind the Blue America PAC and DownWithTyranny joins me every Thursday afternoon to talk about our broken fubar politics... https://youtu.be/kUPvW-FOZIU

9-21-22 Nicole Sandler Show – Busy Wednesday with Morphing Magats

  Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   Two of the more despicable members of the extreme right wing faction of American politics are growing more indistinguishable from each other each day. And neither one of them is having a good day today. There's TFG, Donald Trump, who must feel the walls closing in on him. Yesterday, HIS hand picked choice for Special Master proved he's not having any of the maga circus and is not a puppet. Trump is quaking in his golf shoes. Then this morning, NY [...]

9-19-22 Nicole Sandler Show – The Storm Is Here with Luke Mogelson

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   The title of Luke Mogelson's new book, The Storm Is Here, works on a few levels for us. I was going to play his interview on Friday, but too much was happening to do it all justice, so I opted to save the interview for today as we dealt with the latest atrocity from the governor of Floriduh. DeSantis is now enjoying all the attention he's getting for his perverse and sickening stunt perpetrated on 50 Venezuelans who risked their lives to [...]

9-13-22 Nicole Sandler Show – Big News Day Tuesday with Digby!

With so much breaking news happening -- Lindsey Graham's national 15 week abortion bill, Maggie Haberman holding back big stories for a book, Trump holding meeting on VA golf course, Ukraine beating back Russia, Docugate and the special master, and more -- I could think of one person to talk about it all with... Heather "Digby" Parton is our guest today! Follow Digby on Twitter,  read her at Salon, and bookmark Digby's Hullaballoo, as she is the OG progressive blogger!   https://youtu.be/0Kz0webFuU8

8-26-22 Nicole Sandler Show – Affidavit Friday and Driftglass Too

  Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) The affidavit explaining probable cause for the FBI to obtain a search warrant for Trump's Mar a Lago was unsealed and released today -- well, a fairly heavily redacted version anyway. Trump went ballistic on his ridiculously named Truth Social not Twitter page, although he's insisted for the past week he wanted it released. What we do know is that not only is Trump a liar, conman and thief, but he likely stole the most top secret documents from the US government [...]
