Nicole is out today (lung biopsy day), but put together a real Best Of show. On today's program, Nicole's interviews with Gen. Wesley Clark from 6-16-14 in which he shatters all of our earlier impressions of him, Bill Maher from 5-7-08, Norman Lear from 4-26-07, and the US Representative from Kurdistan, Bayan Abdul Raman, from 7-16-15.

Nicole recaps the first night of the Republican National Convention and prepares for night two. Rev Barry Lynn, executive director of Americans United for Separation of Church & State joined in to talk about Trump's comments about houses of worship losing their tax exempt status if they sound off on politics. And it's Tuesday, so we hung with GottaLaff in hour 2. 

Note: Nicole is out tomorrow for a lung biopsy. We'll have a special Best Of show to run, and we'll return on Thursday.


The circus hits Cleveland today as the RNC  gets underway today. With that as the backdrop, Nicole gives an update on her lung mass and discusses the global insanity that's ensued since Friday. Richard "RJ" Eskow guests in hour one to talk about the Bernie Sanders campaign and its aftermath; UK Progressive's Denis Campbell joined in hour two to talk about Britain's new government and Europe's latest tragedies.

Nicole was out yesterday, dealing with the newly-discovered mass on her lung. After an update (we're waiting for United Healthcare to approve the PET-CT scan, then most likely a lung biopsy too), we got back to politics.

Harvey J. Kaye and Howie Klein both appeared on the show today, adding to the dejected feeling permeating the progressive left in the days following Bernie Sanders' endorsement of Hillary Clinton, and discussing how we proceed from here.

Nicole is back from a forced day off due to a heart attack scare which wasn't a heart attack at all, but just might be lung cancer. It's all explained in the first hour. Sadly, that stuff is easier to explain than the madness in our world. 

Plus Bernie Sanders delegate from FL21, Rick Neuhoff, was at the Democratic Party Platform meetings this weekend in Orlando and talked us through what happened.

More tomorrow...

Today we talked about power. From the cop with the gun killing black people to the members of Congress who keep gumming up the works and spending our money on wild goose chases when things don't go the way they want them to.

Another black man was killed by the police, this time in Baton Rouge Louisiana. Thankfully someone shot video of the killing so we know what happened. President Obama announced that instead of drawing down our troops in Afghanistan, he'll increase the levels to 8400 before he leaves office. Ever get the idea we're making the same mistakes over and over again?

Today, Tim Canova, the congressional candidate running to unseat Debbie Wasserman Schultz joined Nicole Sandler in studio. Luke Vargas called in from Rio where they're fighting Zika and preparing for the Olympics.
