The Nicole Sandler Show hasn't gone all music, but Blood, Sweat & Tears aptly describes the US condition today - from our wars over there to our struggles over here. Crooks & Liars' Susie Madrak, and journalist Dahr Jamail guest on today's show, talking climate change, Iraq, SCOTUS decisions, electoral surprises and lots more. And if I were to play some BS&T today, it would be from their amazing first album, "Child is Father to the Man."
