The Tom Woods Show

This one just won't go away. Even people who should know better unthinkingly repeat this one. Here's what's wrong with this claim.

Mike Cernovich has just released Hoaxed, a superb documentary about the media and how it distorts the news, influences public opinion, and demonizes dissidents. The result: a must-listen episode of the Tom Woods Show.

Stephen Walt, a professor of international relations at Harvard University's Kennedy School of Government, joins me to discuss the poor record of post-Cold War U.S. foreign policy.

People say libertarians aren't interested in good news, and that bad news sells. I'm not sure I buy that, or that that's a specifically libertarian trait. Regardless, I have good news today. Today's episode is a tribute to two partially unsung heroes of liberty. Official Libertarianism pretends they do not exist, which is further evidence of their goodness and importance.

Last night I asked the folks in the Tom Woods Show Elite, which you can join at SupportingListeners.com, for suggestions for a solo episode I might do. Someone recommended this idea, and I loved it. Enjoy!
