Apple won't let me watch free episodes sans detailed registration and payment method.

Can't even sign up for paid Apple Plus let alone free. We tried for 30 minutes or more and it's not going to work no matter what info we gave them.

Hi Michael: This might not be the best place to say it: But Michael, I think it's time you do a podcast episode on the Migrant Crisis, and what you think we and the WH should do about getting control of the narrative on this. So far it looks like the GOP has the reins of messaging that it's Biden's Crisis, made worse by an "open" border, letting it all just pour and pour in, etc....

So Freakin' annoying. It's IMPOSSIBLE to accesss any of this on these terrible streaming services. It says i have an account then it's a half hour of BS - BOTH Apple TV and ROKU are horrible and will NOT let me in to see it free. I guess i will have to wait a year till it hits the library. APPLETV and ROKU SUCK

Glad I read this before I wasted my time with Apple. Everyone! Go to your local library and ask them to purchase the series either on DVD, or MP4, etc. They'll find a way.

I'm sorry, but your comment about the wind not there anymore, I find hard to believe. There will always be wind movement, BUT the trade winds are already disrupted, and are in diffrent directions than before. Therefore giant wind farms, if they are fixed and can't rotate to face the wind, are worthless. I think they are crazy idea that never should of happened! Smaller, more mobile spinning generators would have been the way to go and like the old farm windmills of old, they can move to face the changing winds by just adding a tail fin. They can be attached easily to home roofs and integrated into a solar pannel grid system.

Haven’t watched yet but will soon. There is a saying that “the only failure is in ceasing to try” at this point we must not stop trying in whatever arena you most proficient in. Mine is Self Awareness and the pollution that is destroying Truth is toxic as heck.

😴😴Whaa? Edison is the name of our local power company, not the guy! . Don't care, Edison was a greedy man and discredited Tesla. But it could of been a disaster if they used DC anyway. Although, alot of people got electrocuted with Edison back then. okay, you're getting off topic!

maybe we should use Tesla's atmospheric electrical towers to help with climate change. -- free electricity was his goal. Good Night! it must be Monday now in the UK.

I excitedly shared this podcast and invited several groups of friends to view Extrapolations. Too bad Apple has several LOOPS that go nowhere trying to get to see a free episode without signing up for a 'free 7 day trial' - I will not do that. It took about 30 minutes and I finally got in on a NON-Private browser. Once I got started I was able to click on UP NEXT and get to each successive episode. But many friends wrote to tell me they couldn't get in at all. And tonight I can't get back in - even after having to create a new apple password and lots of other 'security' measures. It's looping on asking for the security code on one of my credit cards. Come to think of it - how would they even have that information!?

In summary, I LOVED the series, especially episode 8. But I think Apple owes you an apology for encouraging what looks like a clear marketing ploy. EXTRAPOLATIONS is a memorable series.

Dear Mr Moore.

How are you? Well I hope.

I am an Socialist and aspiring documentary filmmaker living in the United Kingdom. As a member of the Socialist party of England and Wales.

I was wondering if we could use a short clip from your film Capitalism: A Love Story for our social media videos?

Specifically 58:38 - 1:01: 37. This footage would be used to demonstrate not only the undemocratic, exploitative nature of capitalism but also that their is in fact a democratic, and more productive way of organising society, one which taps into the abilities of all human beings for the benefit of everyone rather than the profits of a few.

This footage would be used to advertise the parties existence, campaigns the party is involved in, events we have organised (demonstrations, blocking evictions, etc), and meetings.

As a party of the working class, and for the working class we don't have any wealthy financially backers, our money comes exclusively from our members, teachers, fire fighters, railroad workers, train drivers, social workers, civil servants, nurses etc.

These contributions, subs as we call them, are spent supporting striking workers, supporting workers fighting rent increases, and producing material to raise the consciousness of the working class both here in UK and around the world including in the US (https://independentsocialistgroup.org/).

Although this allows us to maintain our political independence and internal democracy it also means we cannot pay a great deal for rights to footage etc.

We will of course credit yourself and any film company who was involved in recording and/or editing.

Thanks in advance,

Yours respectfully, Jack Huggins.

Hi, I haven't watched yet, but plan to. Instead of Apple, he said something about Hulu- that might work better if you don't want to apply for an apple acct.

We need to drastically change our way of living. I said before that migration will be a big impact, but not just at our bordets, but state to state prople are moving.

And quit building houses made of pressboard wood which goes up like a straw house in a fire. . The power Co shuts off our power during high winds to prevent wildfires. So then power off- - it shuts off our access to our solar pannels. I was too cheap to buy the back up battery for $10,000 more.

I looked into small spinning wind generating option, still need battery back up. ( perfect for smoky-windy days and nights) but you can only buy them as a company. Have the governments get the small spinners! ( they are big, ~4' dia.) instead of those giant windmills. They can be installed on building roofs. Why? because windmill farms breakdown after time and you have this giant thing just sitting there broken and ugly. The companies won't pay to remove them. And it kills birds!

Thank you

In my case Apple was going to require that I sign up for a free week. Then I would have to cancel after they start to charge me. This was a marketing ploy to get more subscribers. No special deal and it leaves me with a bad taste in my mouth about Apple. I decided not to fall to their shenanigans.

If one is "in front" of a wall rather than "Behind it" sort of suggests a siege mentality.

Historically those that are besieged have the advantage as it takes 30x to 50 x the resources to transact a successful siege. Whether the City of Troy (which I have visited in Turkey) - the walls of Jerico - or even an Apple "Paywall".

Or is Extrapolations a sort of "Trojan Horse" sent out from Troy ?

Which makes absolutely no sense whatso ever.

Beware of Turks bearing "Gifts" ? (even young ones ?)

What are the disgruntled and weary (Athenian) ish Greeks to make of that ?

Climate change forces a change in Washington dress code.

"The backlash was swift, with 46 Republican senators penning a letter urging Schumer to reverse course. But Fetterman himself doubled down: He released a statement saying, “If those jagoffs in the House stop trying to shut our government down, and fully support Ukraine, then I will save democracy by wearing a suit on the Senate floor next week.” npr news 🤣
