5-16-22 Nicole Sandler Show – Funny or Not: Republican Edition

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) When my daughter was little, she's always try to get out of trouble for things she said or did by claiming, "It was a joke!". My response was always, "A joke is supposed to be funny." And perhaps they were, to her! More accurate would have been to say "comedy is subjective." We know that. I can't say I've honestly given right wing comedians a chance to make me laugh. I just know that the few times I've tried, laughter was the last [...]

5-9-22 Nicole Sandler Show – Celebrating Victory Day!?!

  Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   The news geniuses tied themselves in knots over the past couple of weeks, speculating on what Putin was going to do to commemorate Victory Day-- May 9-- which is today! The annual holiday is set aside to honor the victory over Nazi Germany in 1945.... It originated in the 15 republics of the Soviet Union after the German Instrument of Surrender was signed late at night on May 8, 1945. The breathless predictions from our corporate media were everything from "Russia [...]

4-18-22 Nicole Sandler Show – The World’s Gone Mad and Hong Kong’s Calling

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   It's the Monday after a big holiday weekend and it feels like it should be a holiday, but it isn't. The news is awful, as it has been for the recent past, and there's no end in sight to the ugliness. We're seeing it in Ukraine as Russian bombs and soldiers reign their terror down on people who are no threat to them. And Putin's style of strong man governing seems to be spreading. Today, we'll turn the spotlight on China who's [...]

4-14-22 Nicole Sandler Show – Thursdays with Howie Klein; CPC We’ve Got a Problem

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) It's Thursday, so Howie Klein is here. Today, I know exactly what we'll be talking about. There are a few reports out today about the Congressional Progressive Caucus endorsing an actual New Dem (Shontel Brown) over a true progressive (Nina Turner). An article about it from The Lever (David Sirota's new outlet) blamed Pramila Jayapal; Howie says she's not the one to blame... I say there's plenty of blame to go around! We'll start there... But first, there's other news to tell you [...]

4-13-22 Nicole Sandler Show – Ukraine Calling and our Right to Privacy

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   It's a busy Wednesday. I have Tulane Law Professor Amy Gajda coming on as today's guest. She'll tell us about her new book, Seek and Hide: The Tangled History of the Right to Privacy. Certainly an important topic, especially these days! But before I talk with Amy, I'll share the conversation I had this morning with Tanya, our friend from Ukraine. Since we met her six weeks ago when I cold called the Friends Forever Hostel in Kyiv, we've been communicating via [...]

4-11-22 Nicole Sandler Show – David Dayen Explains What’s Happening

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   It's Monday. A new week with a whole lot of news, most of it not good at all. Putin's war on Ukraine is raging -- President Zelinsky says many thousands of Ukrainians have been killed, and he needs help from the rest of the world. Inflation continues growing (a global problem not unique to the US) and gas prices keep rising (same thing -- a global problem). The American right is getting scarier by the minute, and they're accusing the left of [...]

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) With so much going on that I don't know which way to turn first, I figured it was time to call Digby. Heather "Digby" Parton is one of the original OG progressive bloggers. Digby's Hullabaloo has been spreading truth for coming up on 20 years now, and she's still saying what needs to be said, both at digbysblog.net and now also in her regular column at Salon.com. Today, everything's on the table for discussion-- from Ukraine to DC, Floriduh to Oklahoma, to the [...]

Ketanji Brown Jackson will be confirmed to the US Supreme Court before this week ends. Barack Obama visited the White House for the first time since 2017. Ukrainian President Zelinsky addressed the UN Security Council today and held nothing back, including the most sickening video I've ever seen. And so much more happening... It's a good thing today is the *other* Tuesday and @GottaLaff is here to talk with about it all... [...]

4-4-22 Nicole Sandler Show- The Unthinkable is Happening in Ukraine with Philip Ittner

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   This should not be happening. The images we saw last night and this morning from a suburb of Kyiv, Bucha, has the whole world crying. Except for Russia, I guess, as they're the people responsible. The footage is something that would normally not be aired, but nothing about this war is "normal." As we get news that Putin is retreating from Kyiv and the surrounding areas, choosing instead to concentrate his offensive attacks on the Dombas region, it seemed like we'd be [...]
