Academy Award-winning filmmaker and political provocateur Michael Moore offers his subversive and humorous take on the issues of the day and talks to a wide range of people from comedians and politicians to the people who’ve tried to kill him. Plus various mischief with Mike’s friends, family and the neighbors who don’t work for the NSA.
In the first part of Michael's conversation with New York Magazine's Rebecca Traister, they discuss the surprising aspects of Biden's first six months in office, the promise of America's political winds blowing to the left and the peril of permanent minority rule in America.
Next week, we will air Part Two of Michael's conversation with Rebecca: an unplanned and challenging discussion about #MeToo, Harvey Weinstein, sexual harassment in progressive media, and what we can do about it.

With COVID-19 cases skyrocketing in the U.S. and around the world, and the Delta variant causing havoc, we must face the fact that this pandemic is on the verge causing much more death and illness as students prepare to go back to school next month. This is especially troublesome in regions in the U.S. and regions around the world where overwhelming majorities of citizens (especially teens and children) are unvaccinated. Mike is joined by Dr. Peter Hotez to explain how important the next few months will be, the never-ending battle with both the anti-vax and right-wing misinformation machines, and the inexpensive Covid-19 "people's vaccine" Dr. Hotez has developed at his hospital in Houston that could become one of the cheapest and most accessible vaccines throughout the world.
