And there's lots to talk about today, including the travesty unfolding in Nashville right now as the TN state legislature is seeking to expel three Democrats from the legislature because they dared to stand with the protestors following last week's mass school shooting in Nashville. But Howie was a music industry icon back when [...]

But we can still be terribly frightened of what's to come. The candidates endorsed by Howie Klein's Blue America PAC represent our best hope of taking the US off the rightward track toward fascism. Today, we'll be joined by Tom Nelson, the progressive running for the Democratic nomination in the senate race from WI to take on Ron Johnson. But first, [...]

The Supreme Court's term is supposed to end at the end of June, so they're announcing their decisions on the remaining 20 or so cases they haven't yet ruled on over the next few weeks.

12-6-18 Nicole Sandler Show -Nicole Sandler Show -GOP Power Grab with John Nichols; Howie Klein Too!
The Nation's John Nichols joins Nicole Sandler at the top of the show to talk about the blatant GOP power grab going on in WI, MI, OH & NC. Howie Klein of DownWithTyranny and the Blue America PAC returns to tell us about last week's Berniepalooza, and his DWT series on "The Worst Democraps Who Want To Be President"
We somehow made it to the end of this bloody week still standing. Today on the show, Nicole Sandler chats with The Nation's John Nichols about Wisconsin's new voter ID law & how it accomplished what the GOP legislature (who passed it) set out to do. Lee Camp brings the humor about the serious stakes as we head into the weekend. And in honor of Joan Baez endorsing Bernie Sanders, we have a Flashback Fri segment from 1996 with Joan and Dar Williams.
Bernie Sanders won a decisive victory in Wisconsin last night. He's on to Wyoming for Sat. caucus, then on to New York, where Hillary Clinton and her surrogates have stepped up the lies and attacks. And the media is smearing Bernie over his NY Daily News editorial board interview which, frankly, was spot on. Today, Nicole pushes back on the corporate media narrative. Plus Deborah Newell joins in to talk a bit of FloriDUH. And energy analyst, journalist and author Antonia Juhasz tells us about women making a difference in combating climate change
