Lots of news to catch up with at the start of the show, as it's hearing time in Congress. I'll try to bring us up to speed on what's happened so far today. Then, I'm thrilled to welcome historian and author Rick Perlstein back to the show. His books are all about the rise of modern American conservatism. His newest book (soon to be out in paperback) "Reaganland: America's Right Turn 1976-1980" ends with Reagan being sworn in as the 40th POTUS. I'm thinking that his next book should detail the beginning of the end of the Republican party, from Donald Trump through the death of Rush Limbaugh.

Now that the impeachment is over and Congress is back from its President's Day Week Off, it's time for some hearings. We got your Merrick Garland confirmation hearings. We got your Deb Haaland for Interior Secretary hearings, and your Xavier Becerra for HHS hearings. And we got your first hearing about the January 6 insurrection at the Capitol hearing -- a joint venture by the Senate Homeland Security and the Governmental Affairs & Senate Rules committee-- in which the members grill mostly former law enforcement who were charged with protecting Congress that day. The House has its go at those same January 6 witnesses on Thursday. So there's a whole lotta hearing going on this week. CNN announced yesterday they'd no longer carry the daily White House press briefings... are things back to normal there? Is that a good thing? We'll ask Brian Karem, Playboy's senior White House correspondent, our guest today!

Today kicks off a busy week in the US. Congress is back from its recess and that's good, as they have a lot of work to do. First up, Merrick Garland finally gets his hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee- but this time it's his confirmation hearing to be Attorney General under Joe Biden. Others will follow this week, but that one has been a long time coming. And heaven knows we need some equal justice under the law in this country. Can we achieve that? I'll ask today's guest, Jennifer Taub. She's a legal scholar and advocate, law professor and author. Her new book is "Big Dirty Money: The Shocking Injustice and Unseen Cost of White Collar Crime". Our timing is great, because there's SCOTUS news today about Trump's tax returns and other financial records (he must turn them over), and apparently Ghislane Maxwell told a '60 Minutes' producer that Epstein had tapes of both Trump and Clinton. We'll see where the conversation takes us today!

If I didn't have a guest booked for today's show, I would have taken the day off. American society is irredeemably broken and I fear we long ago passed the point of no return. I mourn the medium I fell in love with decades ago and devoted my adult life to. It's gone. An anachronism. So, I'll try to move on, and celebrate the fact that I had some wonderful years in radio before the powers that be destroyed it. At least we have the internet, for now, anyway. I'm looking forward to today's guest. Alexis Coe is a presidential historian. Her latest book is called "You Never Forget Your First". It's about George Washington. But she had me at the innuendo... I'm sure we'll talk about more than the very manly, tall and obviously well-endowed "father of our nation".

We missed Howie Klein last Thursday because we were knee deep in the shortest impeachment trial in history. I know there have only been four, but c'mon now. Anyway... Howie's back today, and we have lots to discuss, including a big story at DownWithTyranny.com about the need for Biden to cancel all student loan debt. That was one of the subjects that dominated yesterday's show. We may disagree on it, though I'm in research mode. But I can guarantee you that Howie won't come on my air and liken me or anything I say to Rush Limbaugh, who died yesterday, and was still the dregs of the earth. Texas is frozen, people there are dying and Ted Cruz flew to Cancun... and is returning this afternoon with his nose between his legs... California is recalling Gov Newsom, NY is investigating Cuomo, and Florida counties who criticize Gov MoRon DeathSentence are being threatened by the governor with "no vaccines for you". Welcome to the Thursday edition of the Nicole Sandler Show...

I'm a radio veteran. My first radio job was in college at the University of South Florida in 1978. I never looked back, but I did take some detours in my chosen profession. Many of those detours could be traced back to one ugly, despicable excuse for a human being. Rush Limbaugh died today. I have a few things to say about the cretin and his legacy. But first, some important items to discuss. President Joe Biden held his first Town Hall last night with CNN. I appreciate his willingness to actually answer questions, whether I like how he answered them or not. But I posted my disagreement with one of the Progressive Left's top priorities. I invited one of the people who responded on Twitter, saying she was "disappointed" in me. So we'll discuss the idea of the government wiping out all student loan debt... No, I'm not in favor of it. Democratic strategist and Student Debtor Melissa Byrne will try to convince me that I'm wrong. I'm game!
