    Ep. 237: Liberty without Morality is Hedonism, with Jonah Martin

    Ep. 237: Liberty without Morality is Hedonism, with Jonah Martin

    My guest this week is Jonah Martin, a former ship captain in the Pacific NW, former libertarian, former secularist, and NOW Orthodox Christian, farmer in Iowa, and manager of St. Nicholas Press. His goal was to escape the nihilism of modernity. We all know what states like Washington were like over 2020 and 2021. Jonah says moving to a big farm in Iowa was like realizing none of that insanity even existed. How did his views on culture change? Did becoming Orthodox give him a different worldview than the one he had as a libertarian? What about his views on rights, liberty, and individualism--did those change? Can we have liberty without a moral society? These are the issues we dive into in this episode of the Counterflow Podcast. Here are the many links we discuss in this episode: Amazon smile for Holy Archangel Michael and All Angels Skete Monastery: GoFundMe for helping monastery rebuild: Monastery: Road to Emmaus Journal: St. Nicholas Press: Jonah's farm, Holdfast Farmstead: Holdfastfarmstead.com is under construction.

    Ep. 236: Does the Covid Cult Deserve Amnesty? with Vin Armani

    Ep. 236: Does the Covid Cult Deserve Amnesty? with Vin Armani

    My guest this week is Vin Armani, also known as Cyprian. We are discussing the theme in an article written by Emily Oster in the Atlantic. In the article, she pleads for amnesty on behalf of the Covid regime, for all of the evil they pushed onto society. Masks, jabs, lockdowns, firings, ostracization, a caste system, apartheid, death, and more were all from these people in the name of "safety". Should forgiveness even be considered for these people? If so, under what parameters should we consider granting them forgiveness? Do they deserve prison time? Death? Love? We discuss all of this, and it really is a nice lesson on repentance. We also get into what exactly is going on with this FTX scandal.

    Ep. 235: Western Materialism, Modernity, and the Age of Information, with Adam Patrick

    Ep. 235: Western Materialism, Modernity, and the Age of Information, with Adam Patrick

    My guest on this episode of Counterflow is Adam Patrick. Adam was the host of the now defunct "Y'er Talkin Over Me" podcast and is now launching "The Age of Information" podcast. His goal is to move the discussions past just "government bad, freedom good" and start to look at the larger battle taking place. In this chat, we discuss the way we view religion and spirituality in the Western world vs. how it was viewed in the East for thousands of years. The Western mindset often informs our thinking, but is it the way the Church Fathers looked at things? What is the difference? Was the Covid Cult of the last few years rooted in spirituality? We discuss all of this and more in this episode. For more about Adam's new show, go here: Sponsors: FoxNSons Coffee ( ): Enter code BUCK25 at checkout for 25% off your order!

    Ep. 234: Is the Jab a Bioweapon? With William Ramsey

    Ep. 234: Is the Jab a Bioweapon? With William Ramsey

    My guest this week is author, reporter, lawyer, and filmmaker William Ramsey. He runs the great podcast "William Ramsey Investigates", where he's been doing a multipart series called "Bioweapon Blues", where he is reporting on the possibility of the COVID vaccine being a bioweapon. What are his points to back this up? Why does he think this? We do a good dive into this topic, and I think you'll find his analysis intriguing if not downright scary.

    Ep. 233: Sinister Psychosis and the Remembrance of God, with Fr Zecharia Lynch

    Ep. 233: Sinister Psychosis and the Remembrance of God, with Fr Zecharia Lynch

    My guest this week is Father Zecharia Lynch, an Orthodox Christian Priest and a very good writer at the Inkless Pen blog, as well as outlets like Death to the World and Patristic Faith. We are discussing many of the themes in his article, "Sinister Psychosis and the Remembrance of God". 2020 and 2021 gave us a lot of evil, and our love of comfort and safety was used to impart much of the evil. Why is this happening to us now? Where are we in spiritual warfare, and how do the tactics of the Evil One work in our modern times? Fr Zecharia studies the writings of the Elites and views them through the lens of the Saints. His perspective on these matters is beautiful and refreshing, and I know you'll love this episode. Is he pessimistic about the future or not? Tune in for that and more! Get more from Fr Zecharia here: ...and here: Find the article we discuss here: Sponsors: Expat Money Summit: - Register for FREE!

    Ep. 232: Russia, WW3, NATO, and Israel, with Jim Jatras

    Ep. 232: Russia, WW3, NATO, and Israel, with Jim Jatras

    My guest this week is Jim Jatras. Jim is a former US Diplomat, lawyer, and senior foreign policy advisor to the US Senate GOP leadership. We discuss the reality of what is going on between Russia and Ukraine and what impact it could have on the rest of the world. Might we be on the brink of nuclear war? And for many decades, the impact on US policy that Israel has is very out of proportion. Why is this? There are a segment of people in the US who believe Israel is a Holy Land. There are some Christians who believe the current State of Israel is the same as the Israel of the Bible. Jim and I discuss this, and he gives us the correct Orthodox Christian view on Israel.

Who does your intro song?

Buck I love your podcast. I just found out about you a couple of months ago and I’ve really enjoyed listening to your show. I’ve got to know, who does your intro song?
