    Lucky is not a word I'd usually use to describe my situation, but this time, I'll make an exception. I'm very lucky not to be in the direct line of Hurricane Ian. The photo on today's show card is of the guy who became a South FL superstar during Hurricane Andrew. Most who experienced that storm first-hand credit Bryan Norcross for getting them through that terrifying night, myself included. That's why that picture of Norcross' coverage of Ian is so shocking... Today, I was prepared for the Jan 6 committee hearing, which was canceled thanks to the storm. So I'll share some things I've been holding on to for lack of time. Today, we have time. So we'll hear Merrick Garland's speech to a group of the US's newest citizens, we'll try to figure out why anyone would vote for Herschel Walker, and further make a dent in the file of sound and video I've been compiling but haven't had time to play. And yes,. the phone lines are open, especially if you're riding the storm out.. 954-889-6410

    20220927 Nicole Sandler Show - Earthquakes or Hurricanes: Which is Worse?

    Play Episode Listen Later Sep 27, 2022 68:14


    That was a question posted in the YouTube chat today. Since I've been through both a major hurricane (Andrew in 1992) and earthquake (Northridge 1994), I'm an expert, and gave my well thought out and long-winded answer... Yes, it's raining hard and the wind is blowing, but where I live in Broward County, FL, we're outside of the ring of uncertainty. That's something you learn about at an early age here in Floriduh. Prepared as we can be, we sit like ducks waiting for the storm to hit. Actually, we wait for days, willing the winds to shift ever so slightly, steering the beast away from where we are. It worked for me this time. The storm track moved further and further to the west, so it will slide up Florida's west coast and make landfall around Tampa. Certainly not good for them, but just what the doctor ordered for Miami/Ft. Lauderdale. But we're still getting outer bands and tomorrow has been called off. Well, not the whole day, just the Jan 6 hearing that we were ready for... Damn. But the optics. I get it. So today, we'll talk... Phones are open for anything you'd like to discuss. And I have some clips to share and stories to tell... Showtime 5ET/2PT

    It's one of the banes of my existence! And I'm not living completely on the creative side of the line. But living life as a creative artist in a capitalistic society is akin to constantly swimming upstream during a tidal wave. Well, it often feels that way. Consumers are ingesting content more than ever, but the artists aren't reaping the benefits. A few behemoths who've swallowed up other producers along the way are living quite large, while the struggling artist just struggles harder. For those of us who thought the rise of the internet would give everyone an even chance to be seen and heard, the opposite seems to have triumphed and the giant companies are rolling in the riches. Today I'm joined by activist, author and defender of artists rights Cory Doctorow. He's joined by his co-authoor of the new book, "Checkpoint Capitalism: How Big Tech and Big Content Captured Creative Labor Markets and How We'll Win Them Back," Rebecca Giblin.

    After a hectic week with non-stop breaking news, I think we all deserve a break from the politics. So after a brief recap of the latest news, we'll officially begin the weekend with something special. A singer/songwriter who I truly admire has a new book out, "How to Write a Song that Matters". I first met Dar Williams some 27 years ago. Her first album, "The Honesty Room" includes a song that listeners of the LA station where I worked truly connected with called "When I Was a Boy." We started playing it on KSCA fm 101.9 ...and the rest, as they say, is history. I've remained a fan through the years, but never had the opportunity to re-connect with Dar, until now. Her brand new book is out, called "How to Write a Song that Matters." She knows how to do that, and now shares that skill with the public in songwriting retreats, workshops and now, with this book. We have a lot of catching up to do, and I'm excited that listeners are along for the ride today. When the interview we recorded earlier this week ends, perhaps I could be persuaded to run into overtime and share the show we talk about during the interview. It was a morning show remote broadcast from Starbucks in Encino, CA, where she and Joan Baez (who were touring together) graced us with an amazing performance... Happy Music Friday!

    Two of the more despicable members of the extreme right wing faction of American politics are growing more indistinguishable from each other each day. And neither one of them is having a good day today. There's TFG, Donald Trump, who must feel the walls closing in on him. Yesterday, HIS hand picked choice for Special Master proved he's not having any of the maga circus and is not a puppet. Trump is quaking in his golf shoes. Then this morning, NY AG Letitia James laid out the specifics in a 220+ page $250 million lawsuit against TFG, his awful spawn and the execs who enable his criminal business activities for decades. And she made criminal referrals to the IRS and the SDNY (the DOJ).. We'll talk about some of these developments with The Nations' new DC Bureau Chief Chris Lehmann. Then Professor Harvey J. Kaye returns to the show to throw some historical shade on governor Floriduh man, who gets off on punking and demeaning Venezuelan refugees who've entered the US to LEGALLY apply for asylum. Republican cruelty is endemic in the 21st century...

    The title of Luke Mogelson's new book works on a few levels for us. I was going to play his interview on Friday, but too much was happening to do it all justice, so I opted to save the interview for today as we dealt with the latest atrocity from the governor of Floriduh. DeSantis is now enjoying all the attention he's getting for his perverse and sickening stunt perpetrated on 50 Venezuelans who risked their lives to come to the US to ask for asylum. We will have a few postscripts on that story, and a few words about the other storms we're weathering, both figuratively and literally as Puerto Rico is flooded and without power yet again... As for Luke Mogelson, the celebrated war correspondent came home to cover the storm he saw brewing with the rise of right wing extremists, conspiracy theorists, QAnon and MAGA world...

But we'll start with the news that broke last night... the so-called judge (named by Trump with zero qualifications to a lifetime appointment in a federal court) who bent over backwards to do TFG's bidding and ruled against the DOJ, keeping them from dealing with the reams of confidential documents stolen by Trump when he left the White House. To explain just what a travesty and perversion of justice this is, we'll start the show with Lisa Graves, who served as a Deputy Assistant Attorney General in the Clinton and W Bush administrations....

Russia is still occupying the largest one of them all, the plant at Zaporizhzhia, which experts warn could be another Chernobyl or Fukushima in the making. While Fukushima was raging some nine years ago, I spoke with Dr. Helen Caldicott, one of the pioneering doctors who warned about the dangers of nuclear power, especially as a pediatrician. In 1978, she resurrected Physicians for Social Responsibility, calling the world's attention to what she referred to as the "insanity" of the nuclear arms race and the growing reliance on nuclear power.

    The affidavit explaining probable cause for the FBI to obtain a search warrant for Trump's Mar a Lago was unsealed and released today -- well, a fairly heavily redacted version anyway. Trump went ballistic on his ridiculously named Truth Social not Twitter page, although he's insisted for the past week he wanted it released. What we do know is that not only is Trump a liar, conman and thief, but he likely stole the most top secret documents from the US government for nefarious purposes. We do know the only thing he cares about is fattening up his bank account. Once must wonder what he was planning to do with upwards of 700-1000 pages of classified government documents, especially since the man famously does not read!

Broward County (where I live), home of Fort Lauderdale, is the bluest in the state. Miami-Dade, right next door to our south, used to be reliably blue as well, but with the influx of South American, Cuban and other refugees, and the anti-Socialist scare/propaganda permeating the Spanish-language airwaves, Republican and No Party Affiliation registrations outnumber those for the Democratic Party. This is a state where the governor is a smarter, better educated and more dangerous and dictatorial version of Trump, and anyone who tells you than can predict what will happen is lying.
