This week the world lost an incredible force of good, the godmother of the modern documentary, Julia Reichert, whose groundbreaking work inspired countless filmmakers that followed — including 17-year-old Michael Moore in 1971 when he drove his parents’ car to Ann Arbor to watch her first film, Growing Up Female, a subversive feminist documentary, in an auditorium on the University of Michigan campus. Years later, they would become friends, and today on Rumble, Michael pays tribute to Julia.

Also, fresh off the United States Men’s soccer team’s loss in the 2022 World Cup, Michael shares his take on the world’s game of football, and gives one final push to Rumble listeners to Get Out the Vote for Senator Raphael Warnock before the final midterm runoff election in Georgia this Tuesday.
