Ep. 1779 Lockdowns on Trial

11/18/2020

Ep. 1778 Media Targets COVID Dissidents

11/17/2020
To put it mildly, the mainstream media has not exactly distinguished itself during the COVID crisis. Wild, gruesome predictions that never panned out have rarely been noted or corrected. In the UK, the average person thinks the number of deaths is literally 100 times greater than it actually is. Collateral damage from lockdowns is hardly mentioned. That's why we've had to depend on more independent voices for the fuller truth. Within the past several days to such voices have come under...

Ep. 1777 Charity Without the Welfare State: Libertarians Who Put Theory Into Action

11/16/2020

Ep. 1775 The COVID Cult

11/12/2020
In these 20 minutes I stuff as much reality about the virus and the barbaric government response as it's humanly possible to include. I delivered these remarks at the Ron Paul symposium in Angleton, Texas, on November 7.

Ep. 1774 Maybe Libertarians Have to Be Political After All

11/11/2020
I've been lethargic about politics for a long time, and I understand who so many people (myself included) have considered it a waste of time. But with one side in particular planning so many evil things, and in the face of the barbaric lockdowns, should I rethink this? Tho Bishop joins me.

11/5/2020
With the election fiasco still ongoing, I've deliberately chosen a non-political -- maybe even anti-political -- topic for today, with Joel Bein of Crash: strategies to follow to get ahead in your career and get the job you want. Even if you're not looking for a change, this episode is still for you: it can help your kids, your friends, or your family.

Ep. 1769 Trump v. Biden: What Happened

11/4/2020
Like him or hate him, Donald Trump somehow withstood an unprecedented onslaught from the media, the entertainment world, the "intelligence" community, the foreign-policy establishment, politicized medicine, academia, and woke corporations. It is a truly astonishing phenomenon. Dan McCarthy and Roger McCaffrey join me for analysis.

Ep. 1768 Why Don't More People Want to Live? And Other Important Questions

11/4/2020

Ep. 1767 Epidemiologist Favors Mostly Normal Life, So the Crazies Hate Her

11/2/2020
Oxford's Sunetra Gupta has been called the world's premier infectious disease epidemiologist, but that hasn't stopped people who disagree with her from all kinds of wild, unprofessional attacks on her. She believes young and healthy people should be allowed to resume their lives more or less as normal, and that any other approach is detrimental to health and is actually far less effective against the virus. I discuss what's happened to her, and her brilliant and brave response.

Duration:00:34:10

Ep. 1764 Resistance, the American Way

10/28/2020
In the first half of this episode I play the full, extended interview I did for Pete Quinones' great documentary The Monopoly on Violence.

In the second half of the episode I can't help adding some current COVID news I think you'll find interesting.
