The Tom Woods Show

Anthony Fauci, although perhaps known to public health specialists and an advisor to numerous White Houses, was largely unknown to the American public until early 2020. Since then, his stature has been elevated to the point that many people equate his name with science itself, at least in terms of the virus. Steve Deace, co-author of a new book on Fauci, asks the questions and gives the answers we won't see in the New York Times.

Kathryn Huwig has been providing excellent COVID analytics pretty much from the beginning, and her work has laid bare the science-free hysteria of Ohio COVID policy. Her recent remarks before the Ohio state house, where she challenged the Ohio public health establishment to identify where on her graph of ICU occupancy the various mitigations were introduced, crushed them.

The story of state nullification of unconstitutional federal laws goes almost completely untold in most textbooks. If a sliver of it is told, it is told only in caricature and in a completely uncomprehending way. I literally wrote the book on the subject, so in this episode I review the history and constitutionality of this important remedy.

Pedro Adao went from nothing to having an 8-figure business in under two years, during COVID, and he did it using the kind of technique that was available to no one even a generation ago.

I think this one is self-explanatory, but let me add this: this episode begins with reference to three academic papers that make preposterous, blue-pilled claims about COVID, and which were funded by a major libertarian organization. Let's shine a light on this.
