Welcome to episode 2 of 3 for this week, as today we're joined by Ken Good! Ken has argued cases before the Supreme Court of Texas and the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals, along with numerous courts of appeals, including the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit. He is the author of “Good’s on Bail,” a practice guide created for bail industry professionals. In addition, he has written numerous articles on the subject of bail reform, including, “What Successful Bail Reform Looks Like.” Today, Ken joins to the show to make the case that many of the good intentioned policies focused on criminal justice reform (like that of bail reform) actually end up causing more harm than good.
Zac Efron made his splash in the docuseries genre at the end of the summer of 2020, having starred and produced in Netflix's "Down to Earth". The series promised to "explore healthy, sustainable ways to live", which piques the interest of the growing number of eco-conscious, young people. However, it is in the solutions presented by Efron and the series that raises the concern of today's guest, as today I am joined by noted American author, energy theorist, and industrial policy pundit, Alex Epstein. Alex is the author of New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestseller, The Moral Case for Fossil Fuels. Alex joins the show to help highlight some key flaws in the approach Efron takes in his approach to offering top-down, government solutions to various problems identified throughout the series. The first two episodes we focus on specifically dig into the energy sector (Iceland) and clean drinking water (France), where it is argued that government policies have been net positives for those respective communities and that their models can be applied here in the same manner. Alex takes a different approach, offering a thoughtful rebuttal to the solutions offered by the series... but you'll have to listen to find out more!

The past few weeks have changed the entire tenor of the 2020 election. In what was shaping to be landslide victory for Biden, an air of uncertainty has taken hold of the political winds, as ANTIFA and violent rioter and looters take to the streets of Americas largest cities, causing massive mayhem and destruction. These mobs have gotten more aggressive in recent weeks, with shootings taking place on the regular. Senator Rand Paul and his wife were assailed by a mob while walking back to their hotel from the White House, despite Rand Paul being one of Black Lives Matter's best allies on the right. It was this final act that started to change the minds of voters who were considering the Libertarian candidate in Dr. Jo Jorgensen as an alternative to Trump vs. Biden, with one such voter being that of Austin Petersen! Austin joins the show to discuss the shift he has experienced over the past few weeks in response to the riots/Paul's being harassed, and why, yes, he's seriously considering voting for Donald Trump. Tune in to learn why he's reconsidering! Find Austin Online- Twitter: Facebook: KWOS Morning Shoow: The Libertarian Republic:
