Michael Moore
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.
Episode details


After a short summer break spent basking in the glow of a Zoom screen and strategizing with people across the country to defeat the Republicans this Roevember, I returned to the Rumble podcast studio last night!

Topics for today’s episode include the Biden student debt relief announcement and something I’ve been wondering about for years — why must the younger students return to school in the middle of summer?

Have a listen — and please share!

— Mike
