Trump – Michael wants him out!

I have something for you. It’s my latest project, and it isn’t a movie, a book or a new line of swimwear.

I have launched my first-ever podcast — “RUMBLE with Michael Moore.”

I started posting it online two weeks ago and, unexpectedly, it shot to #1 on the News podcast charts, ahead of the New York Times, NPR and others.

There have already been nearly one million downloads — and as we begin the Year 2020 today, I am enclosing in this email my first dozen episodes of RUMBLE so you can give them a listen and see what all the fuss is about.

If you’ve never listened to a podcast before, I’d be honored to be your first foray into this very engaging medium. Podcasts are essentially the very best of what radio once was — a creative, intimate way to use audio, to tell stories without pictures, to complete whole thoughts and express fresh ideas without having to speak in sound bites and without being interrupted by the need to sell you things you don’t want every five minutes.

Podcasts are a place where you can go to escape the noise and the bloviating pundits, to relax and settle in to a brilliant conversation or follow a deep dive into a fascinating story or a captivating documentary where YOU create the images in your head. It’s as old as sitting around the fire telling stories and as new as the technology that now allows us to talk to each other without the wealthy gatekeepers and filtering overseers of corporate-owned media. You listen at YOUR convenience — on your commute to work, on your daily walk or workout, in the comfort of your home — whether on your phone, your laptop, or your tablet.

And the best part — it’s all free! You just go to a site where you get music — iTunes, Spotify, Google Music — or to a podcast platform like Anchor or Stitcher — and then you simply go to “podcasts” or type in and search “RUMBLE with Michael Moore,” and within seconds you can be listening to my latest episode, free of charge.

Or you can sign up for email letter – which will now be weekly – and I’ll send the podcasts to you, all for free.

For your convenience, I am posting right here the direct links to my first 12 podcasts from the past two weeks, including my report of how I got a front row seat inside the US House of Representatives on the night Trump was impeached; my searing, controversial interview and afternoon with fellow citizen and ruckus-raiser Robert De Niro; an intense conversation with the director of “Joker”, Todd Phillips; my Christmas caroling with lyrics I wrote to sing in front of Trump Tower, Rudy Giuliani’s office and the headquarters of Fox News; and a discussion of Medicare for All with my own dentist as he drills away, with me in the chair.

Check them out, give them a listen today — a great day to binge! — and subscribe for free so you can get all future episodes:

Let me know what you think. This is my election-year project, to speak to you directly, with my own voice (along with the voices of others) and to use RUMBLE as our way to organize a massive turnout at the polls and to help lead a movement to accomplish all that we desperately need. I have more things cooking around RUMBLE which I’ll share with you in the coming weeks, things that you can do to join with me in getting this country on a more just and loving and equitable track.

A few months ago I made the decision to put my next film on hold (movies take a year or longer to make and release). I did this so that I could place my full attention on creating this new piece of art and politics — “RUMBLE with Michael Moore” — a direct, immediate, intimate way to connect with you on a weekly, sometimes daily, basis so that you and I can create the literal pandemonium that’s needed to end the madness and lead us to create the America we’ve never had. That’s my New Year’s commitment and I hope you’ll sign up with me (and I with you) in this necessary and noble fight for the greater good.

See you in the Rumble!

Here’s to a joyful and a profoundly mischievous 2020!
