A "GoFundMe" Government? Well, more like a "Crowd Funded Government", as today I am joined by Theodore, Executive Director of Funded Government is a new approach to government funding that can be applied to all levels of government. Crowd Funded Government would eliminate any undemocratic influence of lobbyists. Crowd Funded Government would create a system of government that truly is "of the people, by the people, for the people." Listen as Theodore and I discuss how we would get to a "crowd funded government", some challenges it may face, and what a truly "crowd funded government" would look like.

Hey folks! First off, I need to apologize... This week's audio isn't up to the standards that you've come to expect from The Brian Nichols Show. For whatever reason, my computer decided to use the wrong mic setting while recording, which makes my commentary sound more tinny and distant than normal... but besides that, you're all in for a treat, as this week, I am joined by Jose Nino to discuss common gun control myths and to discuss how the US should approach the tragedy in Venezuela. Bio: In addition to authoring The 10 Myths of Gun Control, José Niño writes for, Big League Politics, Gunpowder Magazine, and the Mises Institute, some of the most pro-freedom outlets on the web. His articles have also been featured on Business Insider, Infowars, and Zero Hedge.

Not gonna lie... I hated math when growing up. It was always the least favorite class that I took during school. And truth be told, I'm sure there are hundreds, if not thousands of you out there who felt the exact same way.JW Weatherman noticed that as well, and found that the main problem is that students aren't actually "doing math", but rather learning how to essentially fill out forms in the way they were instructed. It was that realization that led to Weatherman creating is a fun, engaging way for both kids AND adults to learn math by learning how to code. To get started you don't need to know how to read or add, but before you're finished you'll know how to calculate derivatives.Say what???Programming is simple. In fact, Mathbot only has four commands (step forward, turn right, pickup, and put down) so you'll be crushing problems in under 3 minutes. By using a robot to do all the work, you get all the joy of problem solving without any annoying or repetitive tasks. And since you are able to focus on the big picture, you'll learn faster too! Give today's episode a listen and and please be sure to share with your family and friends who, like me, hated math as a kid. Find Mathbot: JW:

Another week, another phenomenal interview. This week's guest should need no introduction, but dammit, I'm going to introduce him anyways, because he's just that awesome.This week, I am joined by the former editor in chief and current editor at large over at Reason, Nick Gillespie! Nick served as the editor in chief and Reason TV from 2008 through 2017 and was Reason magazine's editor in chief from 2000 to 2008. Today, Nick joins The Brian Nichols Show to discuss his venture into libertarianism, the beginning of his professional career, and his tenure at Reason. Listen as we discuss the best means for libertarians to "bridge the gap" in regards to connecting the cultural aspects of libertarianism and the philosophy and political movement of libertarianism. Bio: Nick Gillespie is an editor at large at Reason, the libertarian magazine of "Free Minds and Free Markets."A two-time finalist for digital National Magazine Awards for his work on "UPS vs. FEDEX: Ultimate Whiteboard Mix" and the documentary series Reason Saves Cleveland with Drew Carey: How to Fix the Mistake on the Lake and Other Once-Great American Cities, Gillespie is co-author, with Matt Welch, of The Declaration of Independents: How Libertarian Politics Can Fix What's Wrong With America (2011/2012)."Nick Gillespie is to libertarianism what Lou Reed is to rock ‘n’ roll, the quintessence of its outlaw spirit," writes Robert Draper in The New York Times Magazine. "For the past 20 years, Gillespie has been a writer, editor and intellectual godfather for Reason, the movement’s leading journal since its founding in 1968." The Daily Beast named him one of "The Right's Top 25 Journalists," calling him "clear-headed, brainy...[and] among the foremost libertarians in America." Gillespie served as the editor in chief and Reason TV from 2008 through 2017 and was Reason magazine's editor in chief from 2000 to 2008. Under his direction, Reason won the 2005 Western Publications Association "Maggie" Award for Best Political Magazine. Gillespie originally joined Reason's staff in 1993 as an assistant editor and ascended to the top slot in 2000. In 2004, Gillespie edited the book Choice: The Best of Reason, an anthology of the magazine's best articles. The Washington Post featured Gillespie's tenure at Reason magazine, asking, "Which monthly magazine editor argues that the spread of pornography is a victory for free expression? And that drugs from marijuana to heroin should not only be legalized, but using them occasionally is just fine? And is also quite comfortable with gay marriage? The answer is Nick Gillespie, libertarian and doctor of literature, injecting [Reason magazine] with a pop-culture sensibility."Gillespie's work has appeared in The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, The Los Angeles Times, The New York Post, Slate, Salon,, Marketplace, and numerous other publications. He has been a columnist for Time and The Daily Beast and he was a regular contributor to the late, lamented satire site, Suck, where he wrote under the name Mr. Mxyzptlk.He is a frequent commentator on radio and television networks such as National Public Radio, CNBC, CNN, C-SPAN, Fox Business, Fox News Channel, MSNBC, and PBS. He has worked as a reporter for several New Jersey newspapers and as an editor at several Manhattan-based music, movie, and teen magazines. He is almost certainly the only journalist to have interviewed both Ozzy Osbourne and Nobel laureates in economics such as Milton Friedman and Vernon Smith.In 1996, Gillespie received his Ph.D. in English literature from the State University of New York at Buffalo. He also holds an M.A. in English with a concentration in creative writing from Temple University and a B.A. in English and Psychology from Rutgers University.
