    Ep. 57: EMERGENCY PODCAST SYSTEM — Kill Bill

    The U.S. Senate is on the brink of passing a massive corporate giveaway that will be yet another transfer of wealth from the American people to the wealthy. It was described by HuffPost's Zach Carter like this:



    "It is not an economic rescue package, but a sentence of unprecedented economic inequality and corporate control over our politics that will resonate for a generation.

    It represents a transfer of wealth and power to the super rich from the rest of us, with the support of both political parties ― a damning statement about the condition of American democracy."



    We all must act now to STOP THIS! Light up the switchboards on Capitol Hill!

    Ep. 56: Living Isn't Everything, It's The Only Thing (feat. John M. Barry)

    Ep. 56: Living Isn't Everything, It's The Only Thing (feat. John M. Barry)

    One of the great studies on the history of pandemics is John M. Barry's 2004 book "The Great Influenza: The Story of the Deadliest Pandemic in History," a study of the 1918 flu pandemic. In addition to being a journalist and author, Barry is also a Professor at Tulane University's School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine. Prior to becoming a writer, Barry coached football at the high school and college levels. Using his expertise in both pandemics and football, Barry joins Michael to put the coronavirus pandemic in historical context and to share his game plan of discipline, teamwork, and doing our jumping jacks the right way.

    Ep. 55: Cash Now (feat. Stephanie Kelton)

    Ep. 55: Cash Now (feat. Stephanie Kelton)

    The coronavirus pandemic and all of the economic and social crises that it has exposed has politicians of all stripes calling for massive government intervention. And, funny enough, no pundit or politician is whining about how “WE CAN’T AFFORD THIS!” But just as in 2008, corporations and lobbyists are salivating at the opportunity to milk this crisis for as much government money as they can get their hands on. This is why we MUST use this moment to massively reshape our economic and healthcare systems and immediately get money in the hands of all Americans. Michael discusses what action must be taken with economist and professor Stephanie Kelton, former economist with the Senate Budget Committee and author of the forthcoming book, "The Deficit Myth: Modern Monetary Theory and the Birth of the People's Economy."

    Ep. 54: Don’t Panic. PANIC.

    Ep. 54: Don’t Panic. PANIC.

    Overnight the hospitals in New York began to drown. ICUs are filling up. There aren’t enough ventilators. Only a few masks are left. Many doctors and nurses already have the virus, and too many are being hospitalized themselves. A woman in Michael’s apartment building tested positive and died. The day we have dreaded is here. If we scramble - if we scream bloody murder - if we act smart, today, might there be a way out? Trump has shut all the doors. Forget for now about beating him in November. A number of us won’t live 'til November. We need to beat him now, beat down those doors he’s blocking, so that a million voters don’t die.

    Ep. 53: EMERGENCY PODCAST SYSTEM — The First Million Dead

    Ep. 53: EMERGENCY PODCAST SYSTEM — The First Million Dead

    Michael Moore sounds the alarm like never before. We don’t have days — we have HOURS left to act. Trump’s weeks of inaction and leading the public to believe this virus is “a hoax” will now cost millions of people their lives. Perhaps we can save some of them — but only if everyone who hears this podcast takes action today. Michael exposes the facts that have been kept from the public. He reveals what he’s been told by several public health experts, doctors, government officials and one source who is in frequent and direct contact with President Trump. None of it is pretty. There will be no more school this year — and maybe little or none next year as well. Our hospitals are about to get slammed and overwhelmed on a massive scale. The Army Corps of Engineers must be called up to build dozens of field hospitals. We will not have enough nurses and doctors. The government must nationalize industries to build the ventilators and other equipment we need. This must happen this week. Mike issues a call to action to save lives and for all of us to make serious sacrifices like we never have before.

    Ep. 52: O Government, Where Art Thou? (feat. Dr. Abdul El-Sayed)

    In a modern, functioning, democratic society, how should a public health crisis be handled? And what would America's response to the coronavirus pandemic look like if we had a universal healthcare system such as Medicare For All? Michael discusses this with Dr. Abdul El-Sayed, a physician and epidemiologist and the former Health Commissioner in the City of Detroit. El-Sayed ran for Governor of Michigan campaigning on universal healthcare. His forthcoming book is titled, "Healing Politics: A Doctor's Journey Into the Heart of Our Political Epidemic."
