Rank #4: Ep. 1286 Can Murray Rothbard Be Explained to Children?

Podcast cover
Read more
You know you've really mastered a topic if you can explain it to a complete beginner and be understood. You've truly mastered it if you can convey the basic idea even to a child. And that's precisely what the Tuttle Twins book series accomplishes. The most recent volume in the series takes Murray Rothbard's classic essay "The Anatomy of the State" and presents its basic ideas to a young audience. Show notes for Ep. 1286

Podcast cover

Alex Jones just got decapitated by Apple and other platforms, so I spend some time in today's episode unpacking what that means. I also take on left-liberals who think the problem with the Fed and the military is lack of diversity, and right-wingers who think capitalism is based on "materialism." Plenty of fun!

Rank #10: BONUS Ep. 1369 Church Politics in the Age of Francis

Podcast cover

Some of my favorite conversations on or off the air are with Catholic publisher Roger McCaffrey (who's the godfather to two of our daughters, incidentally). In addition to being very knowledgeable about a great many things, he is a man of impeccable judgment, such that whenever I need advice I nearly always contact Roger first. In this bonus episode he and I discuss the Francis papacy, the next conclave, the five living people who have most influenced me, and plenty more. It's such a fun discussion. Show notes for Ep. 1369

Rank #14: Ep. 1271 Are Democrats and Left-Liberals Smarter Than You?

Podcast cover
Read more
Why, the reason so many college professors have identical thoughts and hold the same political positions is that they are very smart and all these thoughts and positions are just the logical outcomes of sound thinking. Or that's how left-liberals interpret the situation. I, on the other hand, offer a dissenting voice. Show notes for Ep. 1271

Michael Rectenwald, a lifelong leftist, has found himself shunned by former friends and colleagues -- even people whose careers he helped advance -- because he criticized and satirized some of the more outlandish SJW behavior on his Twitter feed. (Yes, this is the emotional level of these folks -- they're angry about his Twitter feed.) But the best part is: what is Rectenwald reading these days? There's a (somewhat) happy ending here, folks.
