    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?

    Ep. 163: RUMBLE LIVE -- When The President Incites, You Must Indict

    Ep. 163: RUMBLE LIVE -- When The President Incites, You Must Indict

    On Day 3 of the second impeachment trial of Donald Trump, the Democratic impeachment managers unveiled stunning and maddening video proof of the violent, insurrectionist mob being instigated by Trump and showing their lethal and deadly actions and intentions. Footage we've never seen before of Senators running for their lives was among the evidence that showed how the January 6th, 2021 was even worse than we thought.

    Michael Moore reflects on today's stunning testimony. The Senate must convict this thuggish sociopath and forbid him for running for office again, and any Republican member of congress who voted in favor of the insurrectionists must be shunned, shamed, defeated and removed.


    Call your Senators and demand Trump be convicted:

    Ep. 162: How To Make 2021 The Year Of The Equal Rights Amendment (w/ Rep. Jackie Speier)

    Ep. 162: How To Make 2021 The Year Of The Equal Rights Amendment (w/ Rep. Jackie Speier)

    After first being drafted in 1923 by two leaders of the women’s suffrage movement and then finally being passed by Congress in 1972, the century-long struggle to have the Equal Rights Amendment ratified and gender-equality enshrined in the U.S. Constitution is finally on the brink of succeeding. That's because in 2020, the state of Virginia became the 38th state to ratify the E.R.A. matching the two-thirds threshold needed to ratify a constitutional amendment. However, an arbitrary 7-year time limit on the 1972 legislation has provided one final hurdle that advocates for women's equality must overcome.

    Rep. Jackie Speier of California has been leading the charge in Congress on the E.R.A. since she got there in 2013. The day after Joe Biden and Kamala Harris were inaugurated, Rep. Speier reintroduced this bill to remove the arbitrary time limit and put the E.R.A. on the path to ratification. She joins Michael to discuss the roadmap for what we all need to do to make equal rights for women a reality.



    Who to push to make sure we finally ratify the E.R.A. --

    Call Your Senator:

    202-225-3121

Appreciate this podcast

We are living in a time when more and more people have lost faith in organized religion, government and other institutions. Science has become a religion to increasingly more and more people, but science studies should not go unquestioned.

I am not an anti - vaccine advocate. However, I do not believe vaccines are a long term solution. For some a vaccine may be their only solution, because improving personal health and immunity may not be possible. One has to believe they can, receive the information to know how, and have the support to do so.

The Nations...

Hey Michael I’m a little off subject but I just wanted to give some fair attention to the young folks from the nations that ran this last Tuesday. It was to bring attention to the Dakota access pipeline. The youth of two nations put it together and it was an amazing testament to the People’s devotion to our mother earth. I for one I have written a letter to the president asking him to shut the pipeline down. The opposition tends to yell about jobs that would be taken away but we are literally talking about this pipeline running through not just sacred land but if it broke it would fill household water piies with running oil. So when I weigh and measure jobs as oppsed to life, it seems to be a no-brainer to me.
Just sayin...

Now!

After hearing Charles Blow interview. NOW I have hope. I will get his book. I will get a cheap subscription to The NY Times just to read his articles. He is brilliant and as far as I’m concerned and I know comparison is the source of all suffering but MLK got nothin on him! I feel as fired up as a white 69 yr old woman can feel. Thank God for Charles Blow and thanks Michael for all you are!! Love, Theresa
