Tho Bishop and The Surfing Violinist talk God, culture and politics on Tho's front porch in the Redneck Riviera
Revelation & Atonement: Redneck Riviera Episode 16
Tho and Ford take a meandering tour through religion and politics as Ford tries to articulate the difficulties of having nice manners when addressing political opponents. How rude is too rude? From John Adams and John Dickinson to John the Revelator with some some detours into Florida's political landscape, Ford and Tho have a pretty languid stroll through Church and State with no clear answers. Definitely more of a porch discussion, so grab some hot cider and stay warm.
UGA Nation: Redneck Riviera Episode 15
Tho and Ford are joined by Tho's brother Tyler to discuss UGA winning the National Championship, and how football can serve as a parallel institution that offers more than just distracting consumerism.
A Strategy for The Right: Redneck Riviera Episode 14
A Strategy for the Right
In 1992 Murray Rothbard penned a blistering manifesto outlining a strategy for the right to take when Neoconservatism would inevitably fail. The NeoConservative Cancer that has served as an astroturfed Vassal State of FDR’s New Deal for the better part of a century is dead. And The Managerial Complex that the New Deal has pampered having been subsidized by the most violent century in world history is scared. I highly recommend Jeff Deist and Ryan McMacken’s discussion in the Human Action Podcast released on November 24, 2021 in which they discuss Garet Garrett’s essay “The Revolution Was.” In the previous essay I read from Rothbard - his review of Sam Francis’ Beautiful Losers, Rothbard mentioned the Garrett essay briefly, and I cannot recommend enough Jeff and Ryan’s discussion of Garet Garrett because it helps put all the pieces together on why Garrett’s essay should be the focal point on where not just The Right, but where America went wrong. In this essay I’m reading today, called A Strategy for The Right, which feels like it was written yesterday, not 1992 - Rothbard picks up where Garret Garrett left off, and gives us the inklings of where we can go next, if we will just cast off the rules of the game the Fraud FDR has imposed upon us. Buckle up. Because Ding Dong Bill Buckley is dead.

In this supplemental episode Ford reads the text of a Murray Rothbard essay called The Franciscan Way, a book review of Sam Francis’ Beautiful Losers, which Tho dug up from the archives and has republished on The Rothbard-Rockwell Report Substack. Check it out here:
The Pagan Problem: Redneck Riviera Episode 11
Tho and Ford have Brett on to discuss a twitter skirmish involving Odin, Paganism, and the Christian compulsion to exorcise the demons.
Great job Tho. From neighboring Washington County.
Great political and philosophical insight with Floridian flare.
What makes this podcast unique and no pun intended a breath of fresh air compared to other podcasts is that it is recorded on the sandy beaches of Florida compared to some soundproof studio flat. It just makes the conversation between Ford and Tho feel more genuine and just real when you hear the waves of the ocean or the seagulls squawking overhead.
The Beach is a character.
I love the beach in the background and being able to hear people who pass by. Love the show and keep Florida, Florida.
