Need a laugh? Let's be real... America needs one, giant, collective laugh right about now. Well, in order to laugh, we need something to laugh at, which is why Adam Nutter joined the show! Ha! See Adam? I can make jokes too! All kidding aside (until the episode, that is!), Adam is a stand-up comedian and host of the podcast "Nerds With Words", which is a comedy podcast hosted by Adam and his associate, Neil Wood. Adam is a self-described libertarian, which prompted me to ask, "how can libertarians share libertarian ideas, yet still be funny/not overtly political?". What transpired is a nearly hour-long conversation of fun, good laughs, and some A+ content. I've been sitting on this episode for a few months, so I apologize in advance for some of the dated references. However, with today being July 4th, I thought this would be a great episode to share that will let you decompress from the intensity of the 24/7 news cycle. Enjoy!

I often mention that libertarians need to have folks we can point to in the private sector as examples of libertarian principles flourishing in action. Today's guest is just such a person, as today I am joined by the Chief Marketing Officer of and Owner/CEO of the fastest growing supplement company, MTS Nutrition, Marc Lobliner. Marc is a self-described "libertarian" but stated in viral tweet that said, "I’m not Trump’s base. Not even close. I just can’t ride with nearly everything the Democrat party stands for anymore. I wonder how many Independents are like me?" With that, I reached out to Marc to have him on the show to discuss just that: being politically independent/homeless outside of the traditional two-party system.

Welcome back, folks! Brad Polumbo returns to the show this week, and what a perfect time for him to come back on, as one of Brad's main focuses (criminal justice reform) is leading the headlines across the nation in response to the George Floyd murder at the hands of the police. Brad joins the show to specifically focus on ending qualified immunity and ending no-knock raids, two proposals currently being considered by the House and Senate thanks to the work of Congressman Justin Amash and Senator Rand Paul, respectively. Brad and I conclude by looking at the Libertarian Party and what is holding Brad back, despite being a registered Libertarian, from considering the Libertarian Party seriously in the 2020 election.

The past three months have been an absolute whirlwind... COVID-19 Nationwide lockdowns Meat Shortages Skyrocketing Unemployment George Floyd's Murder Black Lives Matter Protests Nationwide But now it's time to put things in perspective. Now it's time to not only map out how these all connected, but how they are all caused by the actions (or inaction) at the behest of the state. To help outline this case, Matt Kibbe from Free the People and Kibbe on Liberty (BlazeTV) returns to the show to help outline how the state has been the root cause of nearly all the problems our country has had to grapple with over the past three months.

A special returning guest joins us for the show this week, as I am once again joined by the host of "Wealth, Power, and Influence", Jason Stapleton.

Instead of focusing on politics, Jason has made it a point to focus on advancing the principles that lead to true liberty. Later, Jason gives his perspective on the Libertarian Party nominating Dr. Jo Jorgensen as the presidential nominee, and offers some free advice to the party on how to reach the electorate in the November election.

It's hard to imagine, but we're already almost to June! Isn't that wild? Feels like just yesterday we were in March... Well, though most of us have been locked down, time still moves forward, meaning we are one day closer to the 2020 Election! And with that, candidates are having to reach voters in different ways versus traditional door-knocking and shaking hands at parades, making podcasts a great forum for candidates to flesh out their ideas in a thoughtful and articulate manner. So, if you're running for office, be it as a Republican, Democrat, Libertarian, etc... email me at to discuss coming on the show! One such candidate is that of Elliott Scheirman, Libertarian congressional candidate against incumbent Republican Congressman Dan Crenshaw (TX-2)!

If you're outside of libertarian circles, I'm sure you've heard us use the expression "taxation is theft"... right? I'm right, aren't I?

Dr. Eric Larson returns to the show today, and with all that's going on in the life of a certain friend of his (cough Justin Amash cough), I thought it best to get an insider scoop into who the Congressman really is, focusing specifically on his libertarian credentials and his vision for the Libertarian Party and the greater liberty movement at large.
