The Tom Woods Show

In the early twentieth century, some 1.5 million Armenians perished in the Armenian genocide, at the hands of the Ottoman Turks. This blood-curdling episode in world history largely vanished from public awareness for much of the twentieth century, and is still unknown by most people. We examine its origins, its progress, and its ensuing disappearance.

Toby Baxendale, an entrepreneur in the UK, comes back to the show, this time to explain that the media has created a false impression about the meaning of Brexit. The Leave campaign was run by libertarians, he says, not protectionists, but the latter have more effectively spun the media machine.

Cato Institute Vice President for Research Brink Lindsey launched an attack on Ron Paul and Murray Rothbard days ago, and it needs to be answered. Even more fun are my stories about my own treatment at the hands of these delightful people. Here's en episode you may pretend not to want to listen to, but let's face it, you will.
 
Before you say, "Woods, you shouldn't engage in this kind of tit-for-tat," listen to the episode. I have already answered your objection.

Thaddeus Russell was raised in Berkeley, California, by parents he describes as professional Marxist revolutionaries. His experiences with the academic establishment at Barnard College (the women's college at Columbia University) have become legendary. He's hard to pigeonhole ideologically, which makes him a compelling guest. 
 
We discuss a wide range of topics: labor unions, the Protestant work ethic (he's against), Donald Trump, what's missing from university life, and how Thad went from genuinely not understanding how anyone could be a conservative or a libertarian to being a regular listener of this very podcast! (But still not a libertarian.)

During the presidential election season, the prolific libertarian scholar Walter Block headed up an organization called Libertarians for Trump. At the time, financial analyst and libertarian blogger Robert Wenzel debated him on the subject on this very show. Today, with the end of President Donald Trump's first 100 days in office just around the corner, we revisit the subject in a very lively discussion.

This is a great discussion with Brett Veinotte, host of the School Sucks Podcast, that starts off about university shenanigans, then turns to my writing (which some have considered too harsh) on the left, then turns to my insane workaholism, its roots, and how I conquered it.

The March 2017 report of the Congressional Budget Office paints a grim picture about the fiscal future of the United States -- but don't we hear a lot of grim predictions, and don't things usually carry on as before? Gene Epstein explains what's really going to happen.

Under both Donald Trump and Barack Obama, the U.S. government has supported Saudi Arabia in a savage war that is leaving a humanitarian catastrophe in its wake, with (according to recent estimates) some 462,000 in danger of starvation. Where is the moral outrage of our media, which is so touched by human tragedy when doing so suits the regime?
