In this unique episode, Professor Jeff Herbener and I explain why the economy goes up and down in boom-bust cycles (hint: it's not the fault of "capitalism"), but we describe it in three ways: how we would explain it to a graduate student, a teenager, and a 5-year-old. Sponsors: &

What you learned in fifth grade about government employees being wise public servants innocently pursuing the common good is a fairy tale, and once you see that, you never look at the world the same way again. C-SPAN covered this speech I delivered in Montana that was attended by the governor, the two senators, and other dignitaries. I gave the same rip-roaring speech against government power I would have given under any other circumstances. Enjoy!

If you were part of the Ron Paul Revolution in 2008 and/or 2012, you'll remember the great Jordan Page, who opened for so many Ron Paul events. We're going to walk down memory lane a bit and revisit those amazing times, but also discuss what Jordan is up to these days, including his new song against the commies.

Some of the most vile so-called libertarians imaginable ran the Libertarian Party of Nevada for years. During 2020 they didn't think it was worth bothering speaking about the lockdowns -- why, we can't contradict Dr. Fauci! Why, he's an expert, and only cranks contradict the experts! And so on in that vein. But last weekend actual libertarians swept every last one of the crazies from office. Charles Melchin, the new state chair, joins us to tell the story, as well as to discuss what's ahead for the Nevada LP. Sponsor: Merk Investments -

Southern historian Brion McClanahan joins me to discuss John C. Calhoun, the American historical figure everyone is supposed to hate, along with D.C. statehood and court packing.

I spend some time on (and name representatives of) milquetoast libertarianism, and also cover "cancel culture," what libertarians ought to think of COVID/Fauci, and a lot more juicy stuff.

In recent episodes I have called on documentary filmmakers to embark on the ultimate anti-Fauci project: a documentary covering COVID and the absurd response. And although it should include the charts that tell the story, it should also tell real stories -- human-interest stories of people who were devastated by the lockdowns. Well, I'm happy to report that a group of talented filmmakers will be doing precisely that, and in today's episode one of them joins us to lay out his vision.

My friend and co-author Kevin Gutzman joins us to discuss the original function of the Supreme Court and what has happened since, including the Democrats' latest attempt at court packing.

Instead of just complaining about YouTube's arbitrariness, Jeremy Kauffman created a better platform: Odysee.

Track coach Brad Keyes of New Hampshire's Pembroke Academy was fired recently for refusing to force his athletes to use masks while racing outdoors, citing (among other arguments) the virtually unanimous opinion these days that outdoor mask wearing is unnecessary.

I recently read an editorial in Modern Age by editor Dan McCarthy arguing that progressivism's strength is only apparent, and in fact its prospects are not nearly as great as we think. I'd love to believe this. I talk through it in this episode.

The Chicago School of Milton Friedman and the Austrian School of Ludwig von Mises and F.A. Hayek differ in important ways, and although individuals from both schools have made important contributions to the free society, it's important that we recognize these differences and choose accordingly.

Stanford's Jay Bhattacharya covers a wide range of issues in this episode: asymptomatic transmission and how common (or otherwise) it is, how concerned people should be about the variants, what the prospects are for fall and winter, YouTube censorship, what his opinions are of the vaccines, the problems with "vaccine passports," and more.
