We're all tired of the partisan politics. It's exhausting hearing the news with their blatant bias and narrative. People are looking for solutions to the problems they see in the world. Where to turn? At The Brian Nichols Show, we're solving those problems by interviewing noted entrepreneurs, elected officials, business executives, economists, and more by offering practical, liberty-based solutions; not rhetoric. As a sales and marketing executive in the greater telecommunications/cybersecurity sector, I've spent years working with C-Level executives to help them "future-proof" their company's infrastructure for an uncertain future. And at The Brian Nichols Show, I’m taking that industry experiencing and bringing it to the liberty movement. Instead of focusing on libertarians being right, we’re teaching the basic fundamentals of sales and their application in the world of politics, teaching you how to ask better questions to help change people’s minds. So, you ready to help change the world? Welcome to The Brian Nichols Show. Part of the We Are Libertarians Podcast Network.

Nick's message was powerful and clear then as it is now: that the science was not "settled" when discussing COVID-19 as The Science™ tried to claim back in 2021, and that it was essential for us to keep fighting for justice in the name of all those who had died and suffered.

    "Facts don't care about your feelings."   Hmm, where have we heard that before?   While the "facts over feelings" approach to selling politics may be the favorite of some conservative talking heads, let's look at the fact that the most persuasive people in the world use emotions. If you're a salesperson, you know that it's easy to fall into a trap of thinking that all you have to do is present the facts about your product or service—but that's not enough. You've got to make sure your audience is emotionally invested in what you're telling them. You can't just tell them that your product is better—you have to show them why it's better! And if you don't do this, they won't care about what you have to say—and then they won't buy from you. Today, I'm riding solo today to talk about the importance of not simply focusing on facts and figures when selling, but also on emotions and feelings. OH!!

    Do you have family members who believe in big government, who think that taxes are good and that they're paying into a system that helps everyone? How do you convince them otherwise?

On today's episode, I'm heading over to Dan "Taxation is Theft" Behrman's aptly named podcast, "Taxation is Theft" from back in 2020. The topic we discussed fits perfectly with everyone likely sitting down for Thanksgiving dinner tomorrow - how do we sell liberty to those outside of our bubble?

    Want to sell more?   Then try saying less.   Sounds counterintuitive, I know. But it's true.   In fact, many of the most successful consumer brands and political organizations in the world do just that—and it works for them.   So, how can we do the same thing in the world of liberty politics? Can we sell more liberty by saying less?   Here's the thing: people are busy. They don't have time to read long emails/posts or watch long videos—and they definitely don't have time to sit through your long, rambling pitch.   Couple that with the fact that they have to worry about literally everything else in their lives and you've got a recipe for disaster. But what if we could cut through all of that clutter and get straight to the point? What if we could give people the information they need, quickly and concisely, so they don't have to wade through all of our political jargon?   Well, have no fear... not only is it possible, but on today's episode, I'm going to show you how.

    In the greater liberty movement, you'll find more often than not that our candidates running for office are also our most vocal activists. But is that the best way to approach running for office?  It's not uncommon to see a candidate run for office and then lose, only to then become even more vocal. As an example, when Ron Paul lost his bid for the presidency in 2008 and 2012, he became even more outspoken about it than before.  Today, we go back to 2020 when Larry Sharpe joined the program to help outline how both candidates and activists are needed in the great liberty movement, and how each serves very different/unique roles in the greater scheme of things.

    The United States is often thought of as a melting pot, where people from all over the world come together and work together to build a better future. But it looks like that ain't happening anymore. According to a recent study, Americans are more divided than ever before, as the report found that over the past three decades, Americans have become increasingly segregated by political ideology.  This is especially true when it comes to social media. The study found that most Americans now surround themselves with people who think like them, and as a result, are less likely to seek out different perspectives or engage in meaningful conversation. So, what can we do about it? On today's episode, we go back to 2020 with my interview with Associate Professor of Philosophy Kevin Vallier joins the show to discuss his new book, "Trust in a Polarized Age". We dive into what exactly has changed in America and why it's causing us to distrust each other more than ever before. Kevin and I talk about the philosophical roots of our political polarization, why someone would want to live in a bubble, and how we can break out of it. We also discuss what it means to be "trustworthy" in today's polarized political climate. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

    On today's episode, I'm riding solo discussing the 3 common biases you'll face when selling liberty. In this video, we'll discuss: - The first bias is the ostrich bias. This is when people refuse to acknowledge that a negative outcome is coming from a decision they made, so they "put their heads in the sand". - The second bias is confirmation bias. This is when people listen only to what they want to hear and ignore all other information presented to them. - The third bias is bandwagon bias/groupthink. This happens when individuals with similar beliefs come together and form their own group, which causes them to "go along" with one another and ignore any opposing views that are presented to them.

By 1999, there were a reported 70 million practicing Falun Gong members in China. That same year, however, the Chinese Communist Party outlawed the practice of Falun Gong altogether and began a brutal campaign against its practitioners.

    Hey folks... a much more somber episode today, as today we remember the life of our good friend, Gary Collins. Gary passed away last month, stunning those of us who loved him and cherished his friendship. Gary has joined us here at The Brian Nichols Show many a time, teaching us life lessons, how to live "the Simple Life", and how to best balance our three-legged stool in life.  Today, I wanted to share some of my favorite memories and moments from my having Gary on the program over the years. Please take some time to listen to his words and take them to heart... life is far too short otherwise. I'm going to miss you, my friend. Until we meet again. In Memory of Gary Collins (1970-2022).

    On today's episode, we're going back into the archives as we listen to my conversation with Mark Schneider on the future of nuclear energy. Nuclear energy is one of the most controversial energy sources in modern society. Supporters claim it's clean and cheap, while detractors point to safety concerns and nuclear waste as reasons why it should be phased out. But what do we actually know about nuclear energy? Is there a future for it? And what are some alternatives that might help us achieve a cleaner, more sustainable world? Original Show Notes (July 2021): Many people are turning away from conventional power, and opting for sustainable solutions. Nuclear power plants may not be spiking headlines, but they are being eyed as a viable option for the future. The future of nuclear energy production is in strong hands because unlike many other aspects of life, nuclear power is an option that will ALWAYS be needed. Mark Schneider joins the program to help show how the advancements in nuclear energy have created solutions that answer the questions of climate change, energy independence, and planetary prosperity. But what about the common objections we hear about nuclear energy? Are nuclear power plants safe? Are nuclear power plants efficient? Are nuclear power plants bad for the environment? Can nuclear waste be recycled? Mark answers and overcomes all those objections (and more) on today's information-packed episode of The Brian Nichols Show! Learn more about your ad choices.
