Saifedean Ammous is a top Austrian economist and an important authority on Bitcoin, and it was my pleasure to make an appearance not long ago on The Bitcoin Standard, Saifedean's podcast. We discuss our experiences studying at Columbia University, and the different paths we took in discovering Austrian Economics. We discuss how we became independent academics, operating outside of traditional institutions and how this gave us more freedom of speech and the ability to to reach a larger audience. We also talk about our work promoting rational thinking on masks and coronavirus lockdowns, the influence of "fiat" academics like Dr Fauci, and the various restrictions on speech that we all have to face.
Judge Andrew Napolitano recently featured Jeff Deist of the Mises Institute and me on his podcast Judging Freedom. [CJay, please try to figure out what the best link is to link to the Judge's show.] We discuss the Supreme Court decisions regarding vaccine mandates, and where American society is likely to go from here.
Scott Atlas, special adviser to the president on the coronavirus and a member of the White House Coronavirus Task Force, discusses his work at the White House, the truth about Fauci and Birx, and the collapse of the public health establishment's credibility.

With all the domestic insanity we're understandably focused on, it's easy to neglect what's happening in foreign policy -- Ukraine and Kazakhstan seem so remote to us, after all. But the lizard people could be cooking up a real disaster here, and we need to know what's going on.
We've been spending so much time focused on the virus madness that we may have missed some of the less dramatic insanity of the Biden world. Case in point: mandates on cars that will have a dramatic and deleterious effect on the automobile market. Libertarian car expert Eric Peters joins us to discuss this and other issues, including how to buy a used car on a budget.
Tom Mullen returns to discuss how the Federal Reserve, the institution that's been kept off everybody's radar and was scarcely discussed in politics until 2007 -- nearly a hundred years after its creation -- ought to unite even people with the most divergent ideologies.

After a brief overview of my recent trip to St. John (U.S. Virgin Islands) and COVID stuff I witnessed there, I turn to the Supreme Court: not the Sotomayor nonsense, which you already know about, but the excellent amicus brief co-authored by Tom Woods Show guest Jay Bhattacharya of Stanford.
Michael Malice and Tom discuss their interesting experiences publishing books (via both traditional publishers and self-publishing) and what they've learned -- and what you should know -- about it.
Allen Mendenhall of Troy University joins me for a potpourri episode in which we devote some time to whether the Constitution commits us to an ideological program of ongoing revolution or whether it is intended to be simply a framework within which people of differing ideologies can coexist peacefully.

In a recent episode of the Mises Institute's Human Action Podcast, hosted by Jeff Deist, we discussed the Old Right, the loose collection of writers and thinkers who opposed domestic and foreign interventionism. Their names have almost been forgotten, and Jeff and I want to make curious people aware of them.

Frustrated conservatives and libertarians have begun wondering if, since our enemies have no reservations about the use of power, we are in a lopsided battle: our opponents don't hesitate to use power to oppress their enemies, but we on principal refuse to do likewise. John Grove joins me to talk this through.

Tony Lyons is president of Skyhorse Publishing, the house that published Robert F. Kennedy Jr.'s new book on Dr. Fauci. That book has been subject to the kind of blackout we have come to expect by now, and Tony gives us the details.
Economic ignorance and stupidity just won't go away, but for the sake of all that's decent we have to keep fighting it. Caleb Fuller of Grove City College joins us to discuss some common goofs.

Ken McCarthy perceived the commercial potential of the Internet before almost anyone, and is considered the godfather of Internet marketing. Paul Krugman, meanwhile, claimed in the 1990s that the Internet's effect on the economy would be no greater than that of the fax machine. Ken and I have a wide ranging discussion of book publishing, online business, copywriting, and a lot more, in one of my favorite of my over 2000 episodes.
and I talk about public speaking, the role of politics, the government's virus response and how to know it's been b.s., whether libertarians are "individualists" who neglect "society," whether we think life is all about dollars and cents, and a lot more.

One of my favorite episodes of all time. Broadway actor Clifton Duncan discusses his evolution from someone who was generally panicked about COVID to an immovable foe of vaccinate mandates, even at tremendous cost to himself.
