Ep. 123: "A Modern Day D-Day On November 3rd" (feat. Jeff Daniels)

One of the central figures in American history that will forever be tied to Donald Trump winning the 2016 election and Trump's corrupt and chaotic time in the White House, is former FBI Director James Comey. His story will now be memorialized in a Showtime two-part series called "The Comey Rule," starring Jeff Daniels as Comey. Daniels, one of American's most beloved and versatile actors, joins Michael to discuss why he decided to play Comey, why they had to fight to get this on the air before election day and how America is facing a "modern day D-Day on November 3rd." They also discuss their home state of Michigan, Daniels' role of a lifetime as Atticus Finch in the Aaron Sorkin adaptation of "To Kill A Mockingbird" on Broadway and whether the cinematic experience can make a comeback after the pandemic.

Also, Michael shares his latest thoughts on what transpired this week, the Supreme Court battle ahead of us, the importance of checking your voter registration status and the electoral tsunami that is brewing.
