    Ep. 39: Bloomberg And His Own "Kids In Cages"

    Michael Bloomberg’s commandeering of the 2020 Democratic party nomination campaign is a dangerous moment for the party and the country. If Democrats give in, it will have horrific consequences. Michael Moore lays out the truth of Bloomberg's record and how support for Bloomberg is an endorsement of the Trumpian values we claim to have been resisting.

    Ep. 38: There’s More Of Us Than There Are Of Them (feat. Rachel Bitecofer)

    Ep. 38: There’s More Of Us Than There Are Of Them (feat. Rachel Bitecofer)

    Why do so many Democrats keep making the mistake of running to the so-called "middle" or apologizing for being Democrats every election cycle? And why do Republicans -  an unpopular political party that enacts awful and discredited policies, continue to win and hold onto power? Michael is joined by a political scientist who has studied the fallacy of focusing on "swing voters" and how, instead, the number one goal of Democrats should be turning out non-voters, occasional voters and their base.

    Rachel Bitecofer is a political scientist and professor at Christopher Newport University in Newport News, Virginia and a Senior Fellow at the Niskanen Center. Her election model accurately predicted the outcome of the Democratic blue wave in the 2018 House elections and she shares her thoughts on 2020, what the Democrats keep getting wrong, and how accidentally getting hit in the head by a pack of Ramen Noodles by Michael Moore in 2004 turned her life around.

Customer Reviews

kodiakate ,

Best podcast so far

In my opinion this is the best episode so far. Thanks Michael.

Tamgard ,

Thankful for this podcast!

I want you to know how much I appreciate all of your work and how much I enjoy this podcast. I want to encourage you to make the tv ad that you discussed with Rachel. PLEASE make that ad!!! We need to tell it like it is in order to move forward and stop the epidemic of gun violence in our country. Thank you again for all you do!

Tammy Gardner, fellow Michigander current living in TN, surrounded by Trump supporters

Steve F Japan ,

Always great

Mike, this may have been the best episode (#38) but all have been great, thank you! BUT can you please use your voice to get all the elite well off pundits to realize most Americans don’t like their health care options? How some people on the left bought into this crap that healthcare, true health care for all, in a single payer type system is not the way to go is mind boggling! Even more so that the debates commercial breaks were allowed to be sold to the current health care industry is abhorrent. You need to talk to the Bill Maher types that think being moderate is the way to win, this guest today shows that it really isn’t! Keep up the good work 👊🏽✊🏽✌🏽🙏🏽💚
