Ep. 1759 Me vs. Academia
Ol' Woods here has always had views a teensy bit different from the academic mainstream, so in today's episode we start off with some reminiscences from the Columbia University history department, where I received my Ph.D. From there it's on to every topic under the sun, in a great discussion with Thaddeus Russell. This episode originally appeared as an episode of the Unregistered podcast with Thaddeus Russell.

Ep. 1758 The Lockdowners' Crimes Against Humanity
Nick Hudson created PANDA -- Pandemics Data & Analytics -- as a conduit for rational, data-driven analysis of COVID-19, and to examine the human and economic toll of extended lockdowns.
Ep. 1757 The COVID Economy, and the COVID Restrictions: Present and Future
The great Gene Epstein joins me for a review of where the US economy stands now and where it's going, with COVID and the restrictions in the background, and then we proceed to a discussion of the virus and the state response that is classic Gene.
Ep. 1756 The COVID Mask Controversy
Masks have become central to the response to COVID-19, and a great deal of acrimony has developed between people who favor and oppose masks. After the New England Journal of Medicine argued that their effectiveness was minimal, a great deal of controversy emerged regarding what "the science" truly had to say on the subject. Hence this episode.
Ep. 1755 Indoctrination Monopoly Lashes Out at Libertarian Educators
The popular libertarian children's book series caught the attention of Current Affairs, which is not at all happy that children are being exposed to libertarian ideas. "Why, this is indoctrination!" say the masters of indoctrination.
Ep. 1754 The 45 Minutes Your Undecided COVID Friends Need to Hear
This is the single best presentation I've made on COVID and the government response. I genuinely do not see how someone can hear this information and continue along in support of lockdowns and the destruction of society. Here are all the arguments in one place. Enjoy.

The most important podcast
I think it is an understatement to say that the Tom Woods show is the best work of news, history, and politics since the emergence of podcasting as a medium. Thank you for your contribution to the human race.
5 Interesting Days a Week
How does he do it? Somehow he comes up with interesting topics and guests five days a week. Best liberty-oriented podcast out there, and a must listen for those wanting to understand the current state of the ongoing struggle to stay a free people.
Update: enjoyed Tom Woods so much I became a supporting listener. When I get too busy at work I just have to skip some other podcasts I regularly follow, but I NEVER skip Tom’s latest. Keep up the great work!
Very Good, with a Couple of Notes
Woods does a great podcast, and it’s very impressive that he can put out quality content 5 days/week without it getting stale. The wide group of guests makes every episode interesting, though there are the occasional guests that are a bridge too far. On the most recent Lew Rockwell podcast, Lew goes off on a lame conspiratorial tangent about Satanism that made no sense. Not the first time for this type of irrationality, but it is rare. I am a solid libertarian and understand that the movement does buy into conspiracies more than other groups, and not all of them are bad, but I think Woods should do a little more to minimize these kind of incidents because they make the movement less credible.
