What we learned in school: decentralization is stupid and backward, and the progressive way forward is for you stupid rubes to centralize power in the hands of your betters. This episode is the anti-that. Show notes for Ep. 1216

Rank #5: Ep. 1219 Jeff Deist on Social Media De-Platforming and the Truth about P.C.

Podcast cover
Read more
Jeff Deist, former chief of staff to Ron Paul and current president of the Mises Institute, joins me to discuss how we should think about social media de-platforming and what it means (surely libertarians have something more to say than "they're private companies," as if we're never allowed to criticize private companies). We also discuss political correctness: maybe it wasn't just about politeness after all, and maybe it wasn't just a figment of the right-wing's imagination. Show notes for Ep. 1219

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!

Are things going to stabilize or worsen on the major social media platforms? Michael Malice joins me to discuss the Alex Jones situation, and the nature of social media itself. Is the contentiousness and hostility we find there something that can be fixed, or might the whole project be based on a utopian premise -- just get everyone together, and we'll reach the truth?

Rank #10: Ep. 1246 Stefan Molyneux and His Critics

Podcast cover
Read more
Stefan Molyneux's work has had nearly half a billion views and hundreds of millions of downloads. He has stirred up controversy among libertarians in recent years, having supported Donald Trump and entertained more controversial topics. So I decided to raise some of these criticisms with him and give him an opportunity to say whatever he liked. The result is this episode, in which (unusual for the Tom Woods Show) the two of us appear together on video. Show notes for Ep. 1246

Both times I've surveyed my listeners, Michael Malice has been chosen as their favorite guest on the Tom Woods Show. Here I try to uncover what makes him tick.

Plus, I ask him the question he most likes to ask others. Show notes for Ep. 1345 Sponsor: Curiosity Stream

Eric July, whose band Backwordz hit #1 in Billboard's Alternative New Artist category, joins me to discuss -- in addition to his epic battle with rapper Talib Kweli -- what libertarianism has to say to the black community, whether he feels oppressed every day (I ask him sincerely, since Talib feels oppressed every day), how he responds to accusations that he's betraying the black community by being a libertarian, and plenty more. Eric was the emcee at my 1000th episode event; if you haven't seen it, make some popcorn and settle in for a fun night. tomwoods.com/1000 Show notes for Ep. 1225

Opponents of the free market had a field day in 2007/8: why, this collapse goes to show how unstable capitalism is! That's why I wrote my book Meltdown, which (thankfully) wound up spending 10 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list. We needed an Austrian (and not just generic free-market) response to this conventional wisdom. In this episode, I discuss the book with Lew Rockwell on his podcast. Show notes for Ep. 1206
