I’ve posted before about efforts to create “safe” blood supplies and networks, for those of us who don’t want to risk being exposed to the mRNA product in the event that we may need a blood transfusion.

The missing piece – until now – has been that none of these networks are able to provide blood in cases of emergency, when it is needed immediately. That is about to change.

In this episode, I speak with fellow Kentuckian, n...

When I discovered Kristi Yapp's Substack, "On This Day, Last Year – Six Months of Turbo Cancer", my reaction was something along the lines of "finally! Now we have our Solzhenitsyn!"

Kristi is too modest to accept the comparison, but I think it is apt. We've had mountains of reporting on the effects of the experimental gene therapy for Covid-19, we've seen the excess death numbers, the my...

I speak with Samuel Bornman, author of "Of Wizards and Warriors", the first in a fantasy adventure series written from a Christian perspective, with boys in mind. We talk about what boys need from fiction that they're not getting, some of the problems with modern children's literature, transhumanism and our relationship with technology, and why Samuel has had trouble getting his book into Christian bookstores.

Like most libertarians, The Brownstone Institute's Jeff Tucker has long been a proponent of open borders. So have I. But we both feel that events of the past few years require a more thoughtful response than the standard anti-state-border rhetoric. Including, perhaps, admissions that we've been wrong all along.

Have we?

Jeff and I explore some of the complexities of the current crisis along the southern ...

"A Paradise for Parents" is not your ordinary assisted-living facility. While the past four years have witnessed elder care descend to what can only be described as abusive levels of isolation and neglect, Hal Cranmer, who heads up "A Paradise for Parents'" five locations in Arizona, does things very differently.

We talk about Hal's approach to giving his elderly residents their best possible ...

I speak with economist Bob Murphy about what needs to happen in order to heal the deep dysfunction that is healthcare in America. If you think we can "reform" our way out of this mess, you might need to listen to this interview. We unravel the complexities of regulation, the insurance industry, licensing, and what an alternative way might look like.

Bob's book on "surviving the sick-care sinkhole"...

When newly elected President of Argentina Javier Milei described his anarcho-capitalist position, he referenced economist Bob Murphy's Chaos Theory. So I asked Bob to come on the show and explain to everyone what anarcho capitalism IS.

We cover a lot of ground in this one, discussing how a society could operate with privatized justice, law enforcement, and even defense, and taking on all of the usual objections, from ...

"Good cops kill Jesus," says Dominic Scarcella, author of "Good Neighbor, Bad Citizen: Reflections on the core social conflict revealed by Jesus Christ's Way of the Cross."

We cover a lot of ground in this interview: Can one be a good neighbor and also a "good citizen"? Or are the two fundamentally at odds? Should Christians put their faith in the authority of the Bible, or religious lead...

Canadian restaurateur Jesse Johnson had his business taken from him and destroyed by the Candadian government because he refused to discriminate against patrons who had not been vaccinated against Covid-19. The charges against him were later dropped, but the damage had already been done. 

We talk about what happened, what was lost, the reaction of those around him, and the methods the government uses to exert total control...

If you think that there's something necessary or good about medical licensing, you might want to tune in to this episode. In it, independent journalist Jeremy R Hammond and I demolish some of the myths around medical licensing. You might be surprised by what you hear.

Jeremy's articles on "Why Medical Licensing Should be Eliminated" can be found here and here.

And here is some of the analysis w...

I speak with Jeremy Hammond, independent journalist and author of the book Obstacle to Peace: The US Role in the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict. We go over some of the history underlying the conflict, untangle some of the myths, and ask the question: When state actors on both sides thrive on continued violence, and are themselves obstacles to peace, is there any hope for peace, and what can ordinary people do to help bring it about?<...

There's a new film out, and it's probably not like anything you've seen before. I sat down with Larken and Amanda Rose to talk about "Jones Plantation" - what's so special about it, and how it is that a film with such a powerful anti-state message is finding itself so well received even outside of anarchist and liberty-minded circles.

I also ask their advice for other creatives in the liberty ...

Tomorrow is the day we all celebrate Susan's Still Alive Day, so I sat down with Susan herself, to talk about how the holiday began and what it means.

We also take on the issue of focus - addressing the importance of being intentional in where we put our focus, and the ways in which medical-freedom advocates (and others) can trip ourselves up with our beliefs about where our focus ought to be - and faith.

We all know vaccines don't cause autism, because we're not allowed to talk about it on social media. So the science must be settled, right?

I sit down with journalist Jeremy R. Hammond, to ask the question we're not supposed to ask. You might be surprised by what he has to say.

You can find Jeremy's work here.

Jeremy's book is The War on Informed Consent, and I can't recommen...

I speak with Jeff Tucker about his recent article, "Downton Abbey, the Corruption of the Great Families, and the Future of Freedom."

We talk about Downton Abbey, its insights into the role of the "great families" in a free society, and also the massive transfer of wealth and power - from private to public - that took place during the period chronicled by the show, and which continues in spades in the 21...

The Rogue Food Conference starts today, so I thought it would be a good time to share my conversation with Niti Bali - the "high priestess of the pasture", according to Joel Salatin. 

We cover a lot of ground in this one, from the centralization of food, medicine, and most other important aspects of our lives, to the difference between religion and morality, and the legitimate role of experts in society.

Goldbacks are shiny! But what else makes them special? I ask founder Jeremy Cordon.

We talk about the practicalities of Goldbacks, how they are made, how to use them, and how to know they are what they say they are. We talk about why Goldbacks are legal, and how they are different from other atempts at implementing sound money. And Cordon points out that these bills go a long way to solving the age-old problem of divisibility into s...

I speak with Kevin McKernan about the recent Project Veritas video in which a Pfizer employee claims that the company is contemplating directed evolution experiments with the SARS-Cov-2 virus.

Kevin walks us through the reasoning behind his view that we are already witnessing a massive directed-evolution experiment in the real world, as a result of the medical interventions introduced in response to Covid-19.

The story that free markets are soulless and materialistic is one of the most damaging narratives in our culture. In this episode, we take on that narrative, both in theory, and in practice.

I am very fortunate to have been joined by Joyce Brand for this episode. Joyce is co-author of the book "Economics and the Spiritual Life of Free Men", based on the work of Spencer Heath. She is also one of the founding resid...

We all know it's "one big club, and we're not in it..." but we also know it's not quite that simple. What happens when things start to go not so well for the "club", and the members start fighting with each other?

Tom Luongo explains - in plain language, for those who might not be following these folks as closely as he is - his view on the infighting that's happening right now. We t...
