The Tom Woods Show (talk radio)

This is one of my favorite episodes ever. Author and homeschooling parent Laura Blodgett joins me to discuss themes in her 52 Weeks to a Better Relationship with Your Child series. Even if you don't have children, I insist you listen -- there's an awful lot of wisdom in here.

Professor Kevin Gutzman is the New York Times bestselling author of numerous books on American history. He's politically on the right while nevertheless holding much of the "conservative movement" in contempt. His views aren't boilerplate Rush Limbaugh. Therefore, he's part of the Tom Woods Tell-Me-Your-Story project. How does someone -- a historian, no less -- come to adopt views more or less like ours, without getting caught up in the conventional Hillary-or-Mitt spectrum?

Bryan Caplan, a professor of economics at George Mason University, has just released a provocative (and really excellent) book that takes aim at the education system virtually all of us grew up in. The claims made for it -- virtually all of them -- collapse on close examination. And he doesn't say the system has been corrupted by political correctness, and we just need to get back to its noble origins. His critique is far more sweeping, and devastating.

Mark Perry joins me to discuss the recent Nuclear Posture Review, which some say represents a dramatic break with the past in terms of nuclear policy and the possibility of using nuclear weapons. How concerned should we be?

The great comedian and brilliant libertarian Dave Smith and I talk about pretty much everything: what libertarianism is really all about, why Ben Shapiro's attack on Ron Paul is dumb, how I changed my mind on war, and a lot more.

Antony Sammeroff, who co-hosts the Scottish Liberty Podcast, leads an amazingly productive life. He balances his work, his passion, his personal life, and his health. He does what we all wish we could do. How?

Gene Epstein, formerly of Barron's, joins me to discuss the work of Noam Chomsky, whose views in some areas are so well formed, and in others are simplistic and disappointing. Chomsky is one of the people who Gene says led him to libertarianism, so this is a gem of a discussion.

Per Bylund, a professor of entrepreneurship, suggests a new way of thinking about inequality, its causes (and its mitigation), and whether we should even care about it. Fun!
