I joined Pete Quinones of the for a freewheeling Ask Me Anything session -- the first time I've ever done one. We covered all kinds of topics, from optimism/pessimism to social media bias (and the quickest way to fix it) to self-improvement and more.
Former Maine state senator Eric Brakey discusses his GOP primary race for U.S. Congress in Maine, where a John Bolton-linked PAC dumped a pile of money into an effort to damage his name (particularly because of his foreign-policy views). We then discuss Young Americans for Liberty, the successor organization to Students for Ron Paul, and the succes…
In this episode I look at some examples and counterexamples of countries with lockdowns and mask mandates, and see if simple connections can be made.
Has Trump lived up to expectations that he might roll back some of the U.S. government's foreign intervention? Zach Weissmueller joins me to discuss.
In this free-flowing discussion I cover a bunch of economic myths and misconceptions that have hounded the human race to this day.
With masks, "social distancing," and even more regimentation than usual in store for children this fall, parents are wondering what to do. In this episode, I present them with a pretty good option.
One of the most enjoyable (for me, at least) presentations I've ever given is shared in this episode, which recounts valuable life lessons I've accumulated over my nearly 48 years. I solemnly promise you will not regret listening to this one.
Martha Bueno, vice chair of the Libertarian Party of Miami Dade County, discusses the various ways the major parties give themselves advantages over upstarts, and offers a strategy for reversing it.
With Nathan Sandmann having settled his defamation suit with the Washington Post, it's an opportune moment to review what the media did to the Covington Catholic High School students last year, and why their attempted destruction of these kids isn't an isolated incident.
A chart comparing conservatives and liberals appeared in a California high school class, and it seemed like a good jumping-off point for an episode. You'll never guess: conservatives are caricatured, and liberals are presented as the obviously decent choice everyone must embrace.
In this episode I summarize the claims of the pro-lockdown side and conclude by considering what life is all about, after all, and whether mere biological existence truly qualifies.
Michael Malice joins me for a discussion of current events, including the condition of New York in the age of COVID, new poll results showing how racist Americans think their country is, and what Trump's prospects are in November.
John Zmirak, senior editor at The Stream, joins me to discuss the weird ways leftist political ideologies (wittingly or otherwise) appropriate Christian ideas. Sponsor:
Professor Jonathan Newman joins me to review the role of the Federal Reserve in creating economic discoordination and chaos -- the opposite of what its defenders claim it does.
The Libertarian Party held its convention in Orlando last week, and plenty of things happened that will be of interest to Tom Woods Show listeners, even if not all are members of the LP. Check it out!
Adam Curry, whose career in entertainment includes years as an MTV VJ, co-hosts the No Agenda podcast and was a pioneer in podcasting himself. The way he and co-host John Dvorak finance the podcast is fascinating and unique -- and it also happens to shield them from so-called "cancel culture," another topic we discuss. Not one to be skipped!…
Timothy Terrell of Wofford College joins me to discuss the misconception that environmental damage is a case of "market failure," and the real driving force behind environmental improvements. We begin with a brief discussion of college and secondary-school education in light of the virus.
The warfare state deforms the economy in ways most Americans don't realize. I discussed the topic in this episode with Scott Horton.
Comedian and podcaster Dave Smith joins me for a review of what's been happening in the world, including media atrocities, school so-called reopenings, and why no president can "unify the country."
Scott Horton joins us to discuss whether we have reason to believe that the Russians placed "bounties" on the heads of American troops in Afghanistan, and also to review recent U.S. policy toward Russia.
Tom DiLorenzo, recently retired as a professor at Loyola University Maryland, joins us to discuss a side of Abraham Lincoln most Americans have never heard.

Michael Shellenberger joins me to discuss his new book, .
What is Independence Day really all about? Certainly more than just the sleep-inducing "no taxation without representation." James Madison biographer Kevin Gutzman joins me for the real story. Plus: why you shouldn't pull down statues of George Washington.
Steve Hsu is professor of theoretical physics at Michigan State University. Until recently, he was vice president for research and graduate studies. Despite over 1000 letters on his behalf including from top academics like Harvard's Steven Pinker, the administration caved to a Twitter mob and asked for Hsu's resignation. The reason is so prepostero…
In this episode I talk about the new America, in which we freely call people "white supremacists" (Paul Krugman just used the term to refer to all elderly people in Florida), dissident voices are suppressed and humiliated, and lessons in tolerance are given by people who cannot stand challenges to their views.…
Texas, Florida, and Arizona have the usual suspects up to their usual doomsday scenarios. Should we really be concerned?
The Thomas More Society's Christopher Ferrara just won a major victory over the governor of New York and the mayor of New York City with a ruling by Federal District Judge Gary L. Sharpe that strikes down limitations on religious gatherings that are more onerous than restrictions on other gatherings. In so doing, he struck down all limitations on o…
Journalist Diana Johnstone has covered the world, and particularly US foreign affairs, for decades. It ain't a pretty story, but it's one that needs to be told.
Comedian, financial writer, and jack-of-all-trades Dominic Frisby joins me to discuss the continued lockdowns in the UK, what's happening in Western societies, and his new national anthem for Libertaria.
Dale Brown's Detroit Threat Management Center has had tremendous success in lowering violent crime rates, and has done so using methods that emphasize de-escalation and nonviolence. In the wake of the George Floyd killing, he joins us to discuss lessons police departments can learn from his successes.…
With the present pitiful showing by conservatives as the backdrop, Paul Gottfried joins us to discuss what went wrong with Conservatism, Inc.
Libertarian writer James Reilly and Mises Institute president Jeff Deist join me for a libertarian perspective on the problems with the police and what our proposed solutions would be.
Once again the Federal Reserve is being presented to us as a great savior during a time of crisis. I once spoke at Jekyll Island itself in refutation of this claim. Worth revisiting during these times.
Rainer Zitelmann's new book on people's perceptions of the rich is filled with interesting and surprising results: who "deserves" to be wealthy, what qualities people associate with the rich, how people form their opinions of the rich, and plenty more.
Nothing is less fashionable than defending the South from attack. Responses like "why, you must support slavery," or "you're a racist," sum up the intellectual level you can expect from your critics, none of whom have read a thing. Historian Brion McClanahan returns to discuss the bizarre if predictable South hatred that emerged following George Fl…
Professor Gad Saad joins me to discuss trends in academia, whether leftist domination occurs because they're just smarter than we are, and why CEOs feel compelled to endorse every fashionable cause.
Pete Quinones joins me to discuss his new documentary on the state and how we might think about life without it.
Vijay Boyapati joins me for a crash course in Bitcoin: why it matters (to the world and to you), what it accomplishes, where it's headed, and why he thinks it's actually superior to gold.
Spike Cohen, the Libertarian Party's vice presidential nominee, joins me to discuss radicalism and gradualism, his days as a neoconservative, entrepreneurial background, his libertarian transformation, how to campaign during a pandemic, and plenty more.
I'm being told to celebrate because the left has brought the phrase "defund the police" into the national spotlight. I'll get excited when I can figure out what on Earth they mean by it.
Kris Borer joins me to discuss the foundations of and the most persuasive case for anarcho-capitalism -- that is, a pure free market without a state of any kind.
Dave Smith, comedian and host of Part of the Problem, joins me to discuss the George Floyd protests, the riots, and the (mostly depressing) libertarian response.
Matt Ridley joins us for a discussion of innovation and how and where it flourishes, along with specific examples ranging from the mundane lightbulb to the personal computer. (I ask Matt why inventors' names are all over 19th-century history, but nobody knows who invented the personal computer -- hence the title of this episode.)…
Dan McCarthy, editor of the venerable , joins me for a discussion of the riots and what they could mean for America's political future.
Musician and libertarian content creator Eric July joins me to discuss police brutality, real solutions, and people making excuses for rioters and looters.

Ten years ago next month I released my book Nullification, a combination history and strategy book for restraining federal power. The ideas in that book are strictly forbidden -- the official conservative and libertarian movements pretend they don't exist (the Heritage Foundation would die a thousand deaths before entertaining an unapproved thought…
Today I look a bit deeper into the results of the lockdowns, which are being credited with having saved "millions" of lives.
Gene Epstein joins us for a much-needed bit of optimism, particularly regarding the economy, as we look toward post-virus America.
The online portion, anyway. Washington delegate Miguel Duque joins me to discuss the party's presidential nominee, where the Mises Caucus stands right now, and what comes next.
