Handing Out Red-Pills on the Street Corner of the Culture War

    Episode #172 - Vince Lanci and How Banks Value Bitcoin Mining

    Episode #172 - Vince Lanci and How Banks Value Bitcoin Mining

    Vince (VBL) Lanci joins me again to discuss some interesting parallels and crucial differences between gold miners and bitcoin miners.  Vince shares his thoughts about the real world of how the banks insert themselves into any trade they can to make their vig and why what they've done with gold miners in the past is not the prologue for bitcoin miners in the future.

    Episode #170 - Brent Johnson and the TINA Effect of the US Dollar

    Brent "Dollar Milkshake" Johnson (though I know he hates that term) comes back to the cast to update our conversation from last year. Brent and i take a good hard look at the state of global dollar liquidity, the state of our bond markets and who is most vulnerable to a stronger dollar over the next two years.

    Episode #169 - Alastair Crooke and the Existential Crises in the Middle East

    Episode #169 - Alastair Crooke and the Existential Crises in the Middle East

    Author, former UK diplomat and owner of Conflicts Forum Alastair Crooke returns to the podcast to discuss his recent articles on the religious and cultural imperatives surrounding Israel's response to the October 7th attack by Hamas. Crooke's analysis, I believe, is essential in picking up some of the nuances of the conflict while also highlighting why there no easy answers here.

    Episode #168 - Pete Quinones and the Plight of Being Post-Libertarian

    Episode #168 - Pete Quinones and the Plight of Being Post-Libertarian

    Podcaster and commentator Pete Quinones joins me for a discussion about what's going on with libertarians and why in his opinion they've lost the plot. Stuck in a fugue of reflexivity of their own devising, much of the libertarian movement has willingly taken themselves off the gameboard of not only politics but the culture war itself.

Love the take on the internal workings of the federal reserve, not just end the fed. Which we all agree is preferable.

Just When It Seems Tom’s Turned A Corner…

And acted as if he was aware he had a guest, let alone prepared, asked tailored questions, etc I mean simply interacting in a conversational style with another present person, he reverts to his monologue with invited guest sitting listening as though they weren’t there. It’s obvious this is not intentional, that is, I don’t believe he has guests on intending to ignore them and go into ‘Tom explains everything’ mode. I don’t know nearly enough about the topic to attempt to diagnose what causes him to continually behave this way, nor are such exterior armchair diagnostics appropriate, but for whatever reason it’s just the way he is and it will never change. I still get TONS of value from the pod and his work, and depending on how bad it is from ep to ep I can tolerate the painful cringe of listening to such gross violations of both host/guest and standard adult human conversational norms (had to bail on the most recent re: BTC mining it was so bad.) I’ve accepted it, will always give a listen and ALWAYS read his work, and can bemoan what could be (if he didn’t have whatever communication quirks he has) but that’s a waste of time. Like anything, take what’s useful, toss what isn’t. If it becomes unlistenable (I.e. like the last one) then it does.

Top notch

Great analysis of geopolitical/financial issues. I appreciate the commentary and interviews from an ancap not letting philosophy get in the way of reality. Keep it coming!
