Ken McCarthy perceived the commercial potential of the Internet before almost anyone, and is considered the godfather of Internet marketing. Paul Krugman, meanwhile, claimed in the 1990s that the Internet's effect on the economy would be no greater than that of the fax machine. Ken and I have a wide ranging discussion of book publishing, online business, copywriting, and a lot more, in one of my favorite of my over 2000 episodes.

One of my favorite conversations.

What an amazing celebration we had at the luxurious Rosen Shingle Creek in Orlando, Florida, on October 16 for the 2000th episode of the Tom Woods Show. Hosted by Jeff Deist, the episode includes appearances by Tom Woods Show favorites like Scott Horton, Doc Dixon, Angela McArdle, Michael Boldin, Eric July, Lyn Ulbricht, Jimmy Morrison, The Pholosopher, Tho Bishop, Michael Maresco, Caryn Ann Harlos, and Michael Malice. Video is better than audio for this episode, but if audio is all you have, that's fine, too. It's entertaining all the way through, I promise.
