    The filmmakers behind one of the most-watched and talked-about documentaries of the year, Planet of the Humans, are fighting back after the film was removed from YouTube after a coordinated censorship campaign. The film had posted over 8.3 million views on Michael Moore’s Rumble Media YouTube channel in just over four weeks since its premiere on April 21, the eve of the 50th Earth Day.

    Director Jeff Gibbs and Producer Ozzie Zehner join Michael to discuss the surprising success and outrageous campaign to shut the movie down and prevent more of the public from seeing it.

    Ep. 82: Liberate Michigan...From Trump (feat. Rep. Rashida Tlaib)

    Coronavirus has disproportionally hurt poor and black Americans, in addition to the elderly. Michigan's 13th congressional district is the 3rd poorest in America and is 60 percent African-American. For decades, it was represented by the legendary congressman John Conyers Jr. and now, it is represented by first-term congresswoman Rashida Tlaib. She joins Michael to discuss how she is helping her constituents cope with Covid-19, racial and environmental injustice, what makes Detroit so special and defeating Donald Trump in November.
