    Ep. 144: Political Strategy and Florida Man Energy, with Tho Bishop

    Ep. 144: Political Strategy and Florida Man Energy, with Tho Bishop

    My guest on this episode is Tho Bishop. Tho is co-host on the Radio Rothbard podcast and an assistant editor at Mises.org. He has been well versed, not only in the economic and history lessons of Murray Rothbard, but also his political strategy writings from the mid-1990s. Tho is Bay County Republican Party Vice Chairman as well and is living in what may be the most free area of the United States, as far as COVID restrictions are concerned. In this episode, we discuss political strategy as far as freedom and liberty ends go. Is the Libertarian Party the path forward, or might it stand in the way of future elections, where if a Democrat wins, freedom and quality of life are in serious trouble? We discuss Florida Governor DeSantis, Marjorie Taylor Greene, and Matt Gaetz as the modern day enemies of the State. Tho also discusses his thoughts on the recent debate between podcaster extraordinaire Dave Smith and Republican Senator Eric Brakey. In this episode, we discuss these sites and/articles: Sponsors: Zippix Toothpicks ( ): Enter code BUCK at checkout for 10% off your order!

    Ep. 143: Breaking Down the System, with Legalman

    My guest today is affectionately known as America's Most Trusted Lawyer. He is the host of The Quash podcast, and he goes by "Legalman". Legalman and I discuss the legal system and some of the failed workings of it. We also get into what is wrong with constitutional conservatives and why he can be hard on them at times. Of course, we can't have the top lawyer on without discussing the legalities of Texas secession, so we get into that as well. His show is one of my favorites, and I know you'll enjoy him here on my platform today.

    Ep. 141: Leaving the Cult of Social Justice, with Keri Smith

    Ep. 141: Leaving the Cult of Social Justice, with Keri Smith

    Today I am bringing you my conversation with Keri Smith of the Unsafe Space, Deprogrammed, and Daily Covfefe podcasts. Keri spent two decades in the Social Justice movement. She rightly refers to it as an evil religious cult and is very good at explaining the tenets of it as well as the mentality of many of its gatekeepers. She explains her awakening and journey out of the cult, and she is very good at speaking to people currently involved in it and informing them about how they can escape.

Important Voice in the Liberty Movement

I found Buck’s podcast over a year ago, but it really became a must listen pod during COVID and the election season. I’m so tired of most libertarian minded podcasts that proclaim that there is no difference between the left and the right. Buck sees that the danger for our country is coming from the progressive movement on the left and he does not shy away from tough topics.

Great show with Great interviews

Incendiary loony trash

If you are into hating things for imaginary reasons this is your show. People like this need to be stopped the same way someone setting fires needs to be stop. Freedom isn’t built for prix to ruin life for everybody. This fatheaded moron is not your friend. Lose him and every idiot like him and you’ll be better off.
