A full transcript of this episode will be available here:


Sean Penn is one of the greatest actors of our time. He’s won the Academy Award for Best Actor twice — for “Milk” in 2009 and for “Mystic River” in 2004. And he has received numerous awards for many other films such as “Dead Man Walking”, “Casualties of War” and "21 Grams."

He currently has a new film out that he directed and stars in, “Flag Day.” It’s a beautiful movie, featuring his daughter Dylan Penn.

In addition to his work in film, Sean is a citizen of the world. He says what he believes and doesn’t back down. He takes risks fighting for others. Sean founded the non-profit, Community Organized Relief Effort (or CORE). He has criss-crossed this country this past year helping with Covid relief, creating up-up sites that have distributed 1.7 million vaccine shots in underserved areas.

Sean and Michael have been friends for many years and this episode of Rumble reveals their passion for creating a better world and their deep support for each other.
