The Nicole Sandler Show - Radio or Not! (news and politics)
Nicole Sandler of interviews newsmakers and talks about the News of the Day, with a progressive slant.

Today, Nicole Sandler discusses the aftermath of a few storms- from South Carolina to the latest mass shooting in Oregon, to the Trans Pacific Partnership that's back in the news. Today's guests are Melinda St. Louis of Global Trade Watch, journalist Gaius Publius, and the Gliberal Goddesses (GottaLaff, Amy Simon and Nicole). Lots to discuss today!

Nicole's out today. Today's show is a rebroadcast of the Randi Rhodes Show with Nicole guest-hosting, from December 17, 2012, the Monday following the Sandy Hook Elementary massacre that happened the morning of Friday Dec 14. With no action from Congress since, and in the wake of last week's mass shooting in Oregon, Nicole thought it was time to feel the pain again, and force our elected representatives to do something about it already!

We end the week with the news of another mass shooting, this time at a community college in Oregon, leaving 9 victims and the shooter dead. Nicole speaks with Congressional candidate Joseline Peña-Melnyk, running for Donna Edwards' seat. As Blue America is giving away a Steely Dan platinum award to a random donor to her campaign, today we feature a Steely Dan treat for Flashback Friday - the raw interview between Nicole, Donald Fagen and Walter Becker for the world premiere of Two Against Nature. Time to soothe the savage beast, indeed.
