The Tom Woods Show

Seamus Coughlin, creator of Freedom Toons, is now one of my favorite people: his animated videos are short, punchy, funny, libertarian, and effective. And he's a hilarious guy, too. A model for young people who say, "I want to help the liberty movement!"

Everyone always thinks the current president must be the worst. Surely President X is the most ignorant when it comes to economics! Well, there's a lot of competition for that honor, my friend, as Gene Epstein joins me to explain.

Carl Benjamin, known online as Sargon of Akkad, has built up an enormous online following thanks to his compelling and controversial YouTube videos. He identifies with no particular ideology, but says he feels the greatest kinship with libertarianism, even while he does sometimes criticize it. By popular demand, he and I have a freewheeling discussion, and we touch on his video on the violent leftist group By Any Means Necessary.

Andrew Bacevich, retired from Boston University, recently posed 24 awkward but important questions about the present state of American foreign policy. I thought they were worth reviewing, because taken together they say quite a bit -- none of it good -- about both the foreign policy and the media that allows these questions to go unanswered, or indeed not asked at all.

The perpetually aggrieved have recently settled upon various Confederate monuments, particularly in New Orleans, as the next thing to be destroyed. Given the level of American discourse (a word I use laughingly in this context), anyone saying a word against this is of course condemned with all the usual low-IQ language of the left. Rev. Larry Beane, pastor of Salem Lutheran Church in Gretna, Louisiana, and historian Brion McClanahan, join me for the discussion.

Christopher Voss spent 24 years working in the FBI Crisis Negotiation Unit as a hostage negotiator and was the FBI's chief international hostage and kidnapping negotiator from 2003 to 2007. His book, which I thoroughly enjoyed, is full of actionable advice for real negotiation in your business and personal life.
