The Tom Woods Show

Hungary, we're told, is run by an incorrigible authoritarian, Viktor Orban, who hasn't helped his popularity with the Western intelligentsia by seeking an end to the war in Ukraine. We're joined by Gladden Pappin, president of the Hungarian Institute for International Affairs, who says that when he settled his family in Hungary several years ago they discovered that Western reporting on the country had been nothing but lies.

Last year I launched a business mastermind, and the results have been outstanding. We just added another member this week, and we're getting ready to launch year two. Here's a peek into what it's like inside a mastermind, where smart and ambitious people help each other multiply their successes.

My thanks to Henry Bingaman for letting me share from an episode of his Practical Liberty podcast.

Writing, publishing, and marketing a book can be exhausting. I have a lot of experience with it, so in this episode I'll share some tips (and also note that royalties are the least of the revenue generators a book can provide). I've also just launched Woods Author Academy. I'm joined by Brett Hoffstadt, creator of the Boost With a Book program.

I had a very fruitful and enjoyable discussion with Kim Iversen on the Kim Iversen Show a week or so ago, so I invited Kim onto the ol' Tom Woods Show. Kim would have described herself as a progressive before the Covid fiasco, but the government response and the groupthink, along with other lingering issues, pushed her out.

Clifton Duncan was an accomplished Broadway actor who had graduated from an extremely selective elite program, and was making television appearances alongside people you would know. His star was most certainly on the rise. Then the mandates came, and Clifton declined the shot. He now waits tables. Well, the crazies didn't just ruin Clifton's career; they're in the process of destroying American theater, period, as Clifton explains in this episode. But there's good news: Clifton wants to develop a one-man show on the life and ideas of Thomas Sowell. Let's help him make it happen!

I met John Bush 17 years ago, when we were both spreading the word about Ron Paul. These days, John is devoted to building the institutions a free and decent society will need, even in our unfree landscape. If all we do is react to the latest crazy thing coming from the politicos, we'll never build anything.

It's not just this field or that field: there is a systematic sickness in academic and in intellectual life in general, in which preposterously false things are believed, and based on foundations that are never examined. This is one of my favorite episodes ever, and my thanks to Steve Patterson for this excellent conversation.
