Big fan of this podcast. I’m more partial to your lectures than to your interviews. But I’m sure those also take a ton more time to produce. Wish my history professors cared half as much as CJ does. And 5 stars definitely for always taking the time to try to show both sides of an argument or idea. Start with the civil war series if you have any doubts about the integrity of this show.

A Poor Showing

A very disappointing podcast. I like the idea of military history through a libertarian lens, but there isn’t one episode that I can categorize as more thoughtful than moronic. I gave it about 4-5 episodes, but you completely lost me when you and BT began speculating about Pat Tillman conspiracy theories. Your comments about patrolling in Mosul left me shaking my head. “The HMMWV was designed for rear area logistics support” is a great example of a complete fallacy and not the kind of statement which belongs in intelligent conversation.

Uniquely Engaging Perspective on History

The critics here say that CJ is presenting history from a libertarian anarchist perspective, and that is partially true. He consistently observes that state actors — even the heroes of your your public school history curriculum and right wing patriots — act in self-interest despite high-sounding rhetoric. His narratives frequently align with the same perspective of leftist historians such as Beard, Kolko, and even Zinn on many topics. He also aligns with an environmentalist’s sensibilities on economic development. However, he has a public choice perspective that distinguishes him from the left.
I don’t have to agree with every interpretation of the facts to find this podcast engaging. The ‘one star’ critics probably probably should look elsewhere for confirmation of their worldview.
My only criticism is that CJ tells a bit more about CJ and the production of his podcast than I’m interested in. But it’s his podcast and I can skip the stuff I’m not interested in.
