Patrick Newman, who recently edited a brand new Rothbard book out of the archives, joins me for a bird's-eye overview of one of the least understood periods of American history.

Today's episode covers a wide range of topics: the origins of Trump, fallacies of protectionism, how to respond to critics who say libertarianism has never been tried, plus Somalia, working conditions under capitalism, why libertarianism is attacked when we're so marginal, the increasing use of "classical liberal" by creeps, and more.
 
This episode is drawn from my recent appearance on the Free Man Beyond the Wall podcast.

Dave Smith, the libertarian comedian whose comedy special Libertas spent three weeks as the #1 comedy album on iTunes last year, joins me to discuss his wonderful CNN gig, where he gets away with telling truths you'd be hard-pressed to find on any network. Plus: the awful state of comedy, whether liberty will come via a series of small changes or a handful of major ones, and more.

Libertarians often point out that war has consequences at home as well. The co-author of a new book on precisely this subject joins me to fill in the details.

Keith Whittington, the William Nelson Cromwell Professor of Politics at Princeton University, joins me to talk trigger warnings, safe spaces, campus censorship and intimidation, and the purpose of a university. I ask him some tough devil's-advocate questions, but he sticks to his guns. Well worth your time.

Whether you're a car enthusiast or not, you have to love Eric Peters: insanely knowledgeable and thoroughly libertarian. We have a lot to discuss today: nanny-ish new cars, the consequences of federal regulation, the "mobile driver's license" and the privacy issues involved, the Jeep we're allowed to buy but not drive, and a lot more.

Historian Kevin Gutzman joins me to take on a recent article by a conventional conservative in favor of "originalism" in constitutional interpretation. Fair enough, but as with most conservative discussions of the Constitution, it comes down on the centralist, Marshallian side of the key issues -- and then conservatives scratch their heads about what could have gone wrong.

With tariffs in the news and stirring up debate, I thought a Tom Woods Show debate on the subject would be enlightening for everyone. Dan McCarthy, editor of the venerable conservative journal Modern Age and editor-at-large of The American Conservative, and Gene Epstein, formerly of Barron's, square off in this much-needed debate on tariffs and trade.
