The Tom Woods Show

I recently joined former game show host Chuck Woolery on his Blunt Force Truth podcast to talk about all kinds of issues, ranging from Confederate monuments to Austrian economics to constitutional law and a lot more. Enjoy!

Gene Epstein joins me to make if anything an even more radical case against the existing education system than Bryan Caplan does in the latter's recent book The Case Against Education. Whatever "but surely you agree we have to have X!" arguments you've heard, Gene anticipates and smashes them in this episode.

Nathan Dempsey, creator of Liberty Minecraft, discusses what a game involving money, property, and nonaggression might teach us about organizing society -- and what he learned when he set up, side by side, a place that recognized and a place that did not recognize private property.

There's plenty of good material in today's episode, but I'm especially pleased with the lightning round, where I was asked ten major questions of interest to libertarians and given 60 seconds to answer each. Fun! (I'm sharing my recent appearance on the Johnny Rocket Launch Pad, which has now been succeeded by Blast Off! with Johnny Rocket.)

I've had lots of requests for an episode like this, so here it is. Today, at the behest of Steve Patterson, I discuss two things: the how and why of entrepreneurship, at least in my case, and Catholicism. The episode is not about the interrelationship between these two things. But Steve has been wanting to ask me about both, and I've had plenty of requests for these topics, particularly the latter. So here you go. This is my appearance on Steve's podcast Patterson in Pursuit.

New York Times bestselling author Larry Correia joins me to discuss what's going on in the world of sci-fi and fantasy, where SJW influence has been growing, and non-SJW voices have been demonized with the customary accusations. Correia himself was recently disinvited from an important conference for quite clearly no good reason. We get to the bottom of it here.
