EDIT: I mistakenly said September 13 in today's episode when I meant September 30 for the 1000th episode live event. Please be there! Details at tomwoods.com/orlando.
 
The only person in the world I have ever allowed to write in my name is Bob Bly, who wrote the sales copy you see on the home page at LibertyClassroom.com. McGraw-Hill calls him "America's top copywriter." And he knows an enormous amount about it -- and many other things besides.
 
There's a reason we teach copywriting in the Ron Paul Curriculum: it's an extremely valuable and lucrative skill, and you'd better believe I want my own kids to learn how to do it.
 
Plenty of great stuff in this conversation.

People have asked me to discuss this issue, which I've written a book about, so I decided to make it into a bonus episode. (This episode is my appearance on Roger McCaffrey's Catholic Book Radio podcast.)

Ever since the "liturgical reform" of 1969-70, which yielded the modern Mass with which nearly all Catholics are familiar, Catholic traditionalists have urged the return of the traditional Latin Mass -- for reasons of theology, piety, tradition, beauty, and the like.

The issue was not one of language -- the new Mass can also be said in Latin. The issue was the rite itself, which had never been changed wholesale and by committee.

Gerard Casey is the author of what the brilliant David Gordon is calling the best history of political thought he's ever read. We discuss several of his early chapters, on the sophists, Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle, and what libertarians ought to cheer -- or deplore -- in the their work. Brilliant, and a blast.

We're taught that Alexander Hamilton is one of the indispensable men in the American story. In his new book -- released just today -- How Alexander Hamilton Screwed Up America, historian Brion McClanahan takes on this historical icon. In today's discussion we focus in particular on how the federal courts extended the life of some of Hamilton's worst ideas, which we continue to struggle with today.
