    Morgan Zegers: Meet the Founder of 'Young Americans Against Socialism'

    Morgan Zegers founded Young Americans Against Socialism (YAAS) in 2019 to fight against rising support for socialism among young people. She joins the show to tell her personal story of confronting left-wing radicalism as a student at American University and why she launched Young Americans Against Socialism. 

    We break down the misconceptions young people hold about so-called "democratic" socialism and the messages offered by leaders like Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Plus, we talk about the GOP's failures and the rise of market-skeptical populist conservatism.

    Tiana Lowe: Monica Lewinsky’s Comeback and the Bill Clinton #MeToo Reckoning

    A new TV series, American Crime Story: Impeachment, has brought President Bill Clinton’s infamous affair with then-intern Monica Lewinsky back into the limelight. Washington Examiner commentary writer Tiana Lowe joins the show to reflect on how Lewinsky was savagely mistreated at the time & how poorly many defenses of Clinton have aged. Plus, she breaks down the #MeToo movement’s reckoning with Bill Clinton’s legacy and how many feminists now preaching “believe all women” gave the former Democratic president “one free grope.”

    Robby Soave: The Ivy League’s Unscientific, Dystopian Campus COVID ‘Safety’ Measures (EXPOSED)

    Reason Magazine reporter Robby Soave exposes the insane, unscientific, and dystopian “safety” measures Ivy League campuses are imposing on their student body in the name of the pandemic. We break down the extreme restrictions put in place at Brown, Harvard, Stanford, Columbia and more. Do these “safety” measures have any basis in reality? And what are the potential social and health consequences of forcing healthy young people to live under dystopian pandemic regimes?

    Buck Angel: Meet the Trans Pornstar Who Isn’t Woke Enough for the Left Anymore

    Buck Angel: Meet the Trans Pornstar Who Isn’t Woke Enough for the Left Anymore

    Trans activist and pornstar Buck Angel explains his “controversial” opinions that made him persona non grata with the woke Left and its online mobs.

    What does it mean to be transexual? When did it become ‘transphobic’ to acknowledge biological sex? How did the LGBTQ community become so intolerant and fragile? What should we make of the complicated issues of transgender children and transgender inclusion in sports? And what about “detransitioners?”

    Buck and I discuss all this & much more.

    Revolution of One: Politics Can’t Fix Your Life, But You Can

    Revolution of One: Politics Can’t Fix Your Life, But You Can

    “You don’t need to wait on the ballot box to revolutionize your life… to get healthier, wealthier, create the kind of life that you want.” — Kamau Olatunji

    My Foundation for Economic Education colleague Kamau Olatunji joins the show to explain the “Revolution of One” project and message. Waiting on politicians and the government to solve your problems is a recipe for unhappiness, Kamau explains. He outlines how to take charge of your life and make change by focusing on yourself as an individual. Kamau and I contrast this message to the narratives of oppression, systemic racism, and hopelessness offered by those pushing Big Government and collectivism.
