Libertarian Ladies Roundtable – Why So Many White Guys?

I’m the only guy on the show as three lovely libertarian ladies — Kiki, Carrie and Lisa — join me for a wide-ranging discussion about the female perspective on liberty issues and society.

Here’s some of what the ladies and I discuss:

  • Why are most libertarians white men?
  • How a bad encounter with the State or police can bring a woman to liberty
  • Why there aren’t more black men in the liberty movement (and the disconnect that causes many of them to embrace the state)
  • What Colin Kaepernick gets about State oppression (and what he still doesn’t understand)
  • Why women are the most radical of all libertarians
  • The risks that libertarian women face, that men don’t
  • How Kiki uses her philosophy of freedom to be a better friend to her girlfriends
  • Why a long-time friend is more likely to be a statist than a new friend is
  • The arrogance Carrie sometimes sees in libertarian men (and how she handles it)
  • Why the ladies couldn’t imagine having a romantic relationship with a statist
  • Anarchism without adjectives
  • Feminism as a collective ideology vs. individual liberty
  • Individualist feminism – why it’s not an oxymoron
  • Two unique ways Carrie strikes up conversations with strangers
  • A Dead Libertarian you’ve probably never heard of (but you need to know about)
  • And much more!

Adventures In Nicaragua: Energy Economist Confronts Howler Monkey

Join me as I talk with my guest Brandon, an economist studying rural energy poverty. Brandon recently returned from a month-long trip to Nicaragua, and he shares his adventures with us.

Here’s what you’ll hear about in this episode:

  • Tom Woods mentions Libertarians On Fire during The Tom Woods Show and then again in an email to his list
  • Why Brandon joined the military (and why he wished he hadn’t)
  • How Brandon talked his brother out of joining the military using a clever form of reverse psychology
  • The book Brandon read that instantly made him want a PhD in economics
  • Keynesian economics vs. Austrian economics: how they’re different and which is better
  • Why Milton Friedman jumped the shark on monetary policy
  • How Brandon navigated the land mines of learning economics from statist professors 
  • The book that launched Brandon on his libertarian journey, and led him to take an interest in energy poverty
  • A dead libertarian who renounced violence and became a staunch anti-war activist 
  • Modern energy that the first world takes for granted (and what people in the developing world have to deal with)
  • How a single solar-powered light bulb changed a family’s life
  • Why US government foreign policy since the mid-1800s still adversely affects the lives of people in Nicaragua to this day
  • The mistake some people make when they conflate the State with the nation 
  • What happened when Brandon confronted a howler monkey (and what they have in common with humans)
  • Why it’s easy to catch a cab in Nicaragua
  • Free-market agorism at work in a socialist economy
  • How crafty entrepreneurs take advantage of the US Coast Guard
  • And much more!

Watch Alex Epstein shred Senator Barbara Boxer during a congressional hearing.

Read Jeffrey Sachs’ The End of Poverty, the book that made Brandon want to pursue a PhD in economics.
