About the show

We're all tired of the partisan politics. It's exhausting hearing the news with their blatant bias and narrative.

People are looking for solutions to the problems they see in the world.

Where to turn?

At The Brian Nichols Show, we're solving those problems by interviewing noted entrepreneurs, elected officials, business executives, economists, and more by offering practical, liberty-based solutions; not rhetoric.

As a sales and marketing executive in the greater telecommunications/cybersecurity sector, I've spent years working with C-Level executives to help them "future-proof" their company's infrastructure for an uncertain future. And at The Brian Nichols Show, I’m taking that industry experiencing and bringing it to the liberty movement.

At The Brian Nichols Show, instead of focusing on libertarians being right, we’re teaching the basic fundamentals of sales and their application in the world of politics, teaching you how to ask better questions to help change people’s minds.

So, you ready to help change the world?

Welcome to The Brian Nichols Show.

Part of the We Are Libertarians Podcast Network.

    What are the two emotions that drive buyers into action?

    Fear.

    Knowing that, how is fear being using to sell us on massive government policies with price tags ranging from the billions and even trillions of dollars.

    Dr. Patrick Moore is one of the co-founders of Greenpeace and joins the program today to outline how easily fear can be used to motivate policy, actual science be damned, and how the contemporary environmental movement has focused less on saving the environment than it is being anti-humanity.

    "We're all in this together!"

    Easily the most tone-deaf line from the entire pandemic. No, we're not all in this together. And as the lockdowns go on, the stockpiling of the amount of pain only increases.

    "Take two of these and call me in the morning."

    A classic doctor's line that we've all jokingly said in jest at one point or another. But what if the "take two of these" medications are only dealing with symptoms versus actually tackling the root of the problem?

    The COVID lockdowns have been one of the most divisive aspects of the COVID-19 pandemic, with many libertarians (like yours truly) raising the alarm to the threat of unintended consequences in blindly following the government's approved list of experts.

    But did I go to far? Did libertarians scare away potential liberty-curious folks by our strong stance against the government lockdowns?

    Economist and friend of the show Max Gulker returns to the program and gives his take while also challenging my stance that "if you're explaining, you're losing".

    Cancel culture. Identity politics. Wokeism.

    New Jersey was one of the hardest hit states by the COVID pandemic, and the government's response to COVID likely ended up causing more pain than the virus alone.

    Governor Phil Murphy even went as far to say that worrying about the Bill of Rights was "above his pay grade" when being pressed on his administration's lockdown tactics.

    Gregg Mele decided that enough was enough, and announced that he was seeking to unseat Phil Murphy as governor under the Libertarian Party. Gregg joins the program to outline specifically why he is running for governor, and what he would do differently when compared to the current Murphy administration.

    "The goal of the proposal is ...."

    Now, to judge how a proposal did, one would want to look at the actual outcomes of said proposal, versus just looking at the intentions of the proposal.

    And yet, when it comes to government programs and policies, it is the intentions that lawmakers seem to focus on.

    Nolan Gray is a housing researcher at UCLA, a former NYC city planner, host of the YouTube "Pop Culture Urbanism" (where he dissects housing & city questions from famous movies & TV shows), and joins the program to specifically address California's extreme environmental laws and where they ended up exacerbating the very problems they were seeking to address.
