    On Monday, March 1st, the "Rumble with Michael Moore" podcast surpassed 25 million downloads. To celebrate, we recorded a special livestream episode of Rumble on YouTube with some of our favorite guests from the first 14 months, which we are sharing in multiple parts. In this episode, Michael is first joined by Emmy Award-winning actor, Michigander, and new fashion icon Jeff Daniels. They discuss his viral moment at the Golden Globes, the first days of the Biden administration and getting vaccinated and getting back to work. Next, Michael is joined by Pentagon Papers whistleblower and peace activist, Daniel Ellsberg. They discuss how we handle this era of mass delusion with so many of our fellow Americans living in a different universe than us, the perils of climate change and nuclear weapons, balancing optimism over despair and Mike Tyson.

    ***********

    Michael Moore received his second dose of the Covid-19 Pfizer vaccine this week. He discusses his yearlong lockdown during the pandemic, why he decided to get vaccinated now, and why we should all get vaccinated when our number is called. He also shares the benefits of all the solitary time in his 353-day quarantine, his "liberation day" list of things to do once the vaccine has taken effect, the racial and socioeconomic disparities in vaccinations, and why we must all continue to be vigilant until Covid is gone for good.

    Finally, Michael warns of the three major problems with the Biden administration this week: bombing Syria, going soft on the minimum wage increase and giving Saudi Crown Prince MBS a free pass after ordering the killing of a Washington Post journalist.

    Ep. 167: The Middle Of The Road Is Deadly (feat. Rick Perlstein)

    Ep. 167: The Middle Of The Road Is Deadly (feat. Rick Perlstein)

    The violent, insurrectionist, January 6th mob attempting to overturn the election results are part of a long line of a reactionary and white supremacist elements within American politics who will resort to violence or chicanery when they don't get their way electorally. They are now at the center of the Republican party and we will have to deal with their undemocratic impulses and threats of violence as a regular feature of our politics unless we do something about it now. Historian Rick Perlstein has brilliantly documented the modern conservative movement, and he joins Michael to discuss January 6th and its aftermath, positive early moves by the Biden administration, and the ugly legacy of Rush Limbaugh that contributed to today's violent, undemocratic and dangerous Republican party.

    Ep. 166: Idiot Wind

    Ep. 166: Idiot Wind

    Between the stupid disaster occurring in Texas to the continuing stupid rampage of Covid-19 to the death of S. Rush Limbaugh, it's been a banner week for enforced ignorance and prideful stupidity in America. Michael Moore makes the connection between the unique strain of American idiocy, the never-ending addiction to the myths about the "free market" and privatization, and one of the loudest and most destructive voices in the country with his legacy of ignorance, hate, fear and violence he leaves behind. Finally, Michael reflects on the passing of Jim Ridgeway, an investigative journalist who left an indelible mark in journalism, on the left, and in Michael's life and career.

    Ep. 165: Charles Blow (feat. Charles Blow)

    Charles Blow is a columnist at the New York Times, and commentator on CNN and the author of a new book, "The Devil You Know: A Black Power Manifesto." His voice is like no other in the media. He joins Michael to discuss the problem with lumping together "people of color," why political attempts at "unity" have often been at the expense of and to the detriment of Black Americans and minority groups, and his radical geographic plan for how to increase the political and economic power of Black American as he's detailed in his new manifesto. How does 14 Black Senators sound?

Sad but true

Hi Michael,

I too have been overlooking the many faults which Elizabeth has displayed, you echoed my thoughts exactly when each of the previous controversies were discussed in the media. I had an internal debate about why a person who comes across as a voice of justice an equity would actively participating an helping to keep the voice of those that need to be heard most (native Americans) by usurping positions created for them for personal gain. Then willingly forgave her for her past mistakes when she expressed regret, but now we can see a pattern which will not change. She was willing to throw everything away for all Americans for her personal gain by doing this to Bernie, with a heavy heart I have abandoned all hope for her, she quite possibly is a wolf in sheep’s clothing meant to fool us. I hope this doesn’t impact Bernies campaign, I had hoped she would be his running mate once the primaries were over but that hope has finally been snuffed.
