    On today's episode of The Brian Nichols Show, I am joined by 2020 Libertarian Presidential candidate, Kim Ruff! And what and episode it was!

    Listen as Kim gives her perspective as to what went wrong for Libertarians in 2016 (and how they can do better in 2020). Next, I ask Kim some questions she would see as the Libertarian nominee on the debate stage, such as the libertarian perspective on foreign policy, the inevitable "What is a libertarian?" question, and what her closing pitch to voters would be during her closing statement.

    If you're interested in learning more about her campaign, find her campaign online at RuffPhillips2020.org.

    Bio: Ms. Ruff is a graduate of Arizona State University with dual baccalaureates in Political Science and Communications. She is the Operations Director at a Plastic and Metal Fabrication Plant that serves the high purity industries. She is also a mother of two beautiful children, aged four and five. She is a former Air Force wife and lived in both Arkansas and New York. She founded the Niagara County Libertarian Party and participated in 2016 as a delegate for the state of New York at the LP National Convention.

    Welcome back, ya beautiful people! I hope you had a fun and relaxing holiday break with you family and friends as we wrapped up 2018. But alas, here we are, kicking off 2019 the right way... with yet another phenomenal guest on The Brian Nichols Show!

    To kick off 2019, I am joined by the Editor at Young Voices and contributor to National Review, The Federalist, and the Washington Examiner, Brad Polumbo! Brad focuses on a number of issues in his commentaries, but particularly focuses on civil liberties, LGBT issues, and higher education.

    For today's episode, we start off discussing the divide between those within the LGBT movement and the political ideologies of conservatism and libertarianism. As an openly gay conservative/libertarian, I ask Brad to share his experience within the larger conservative/libertarian communities, his interactions with social conservatives, and the manner in which he and other gay conservatives/libertarians are treated by the greater LGBT movement.

    Later, Brad gives his advice to libertarians as to how and better win over members of the LGBT community and dissects the ridiculousness that is identity politics.

    This special BONUS EPISODE of The Brian Nichols Show concludes the 2018 season! Listen as I joined friend of the show, Remso Martinez, on his program- The Resmo Martinez Experience.


    (Found originally from https://rwmartinez.com/2018/12/24/podcast-the-weekly-standard-is-dead-so-who-is-next/)

    Remso and the boys are here with you today to pour one out for our war-loving homies at The Weekly Standard. During The Weekly Standard’s 23 years of life, it became really good friends with George W. Bush and was eventually beaten into a coma after the 2016 election. The guys discuss who will be the next publication to die, what this means for the future of Rand Paul, why middle America hates eggheads, and what the future of legacy media may look like.

    Wow! What a year! This will be the final episode of The Brian Nichols Show for 2018! But don't you worry, I have a special episode in store for you next week from my appearance on a different podcast... a podcast hosted by a dear friend of The Brian Nichols Show.

    To wrap up the 2018 season of The Brian Nichols Show, I am joined by Max Gulker from the American Institute for Economic Research! Max is an economist over AIER and has holds a PhD in economics from Stanford University and a BA in economics from the University of Michigan. Prior to AIER, Max spent time in the private sector, consulting with large technology and financial firms on antitrust and other litigation.

    Max joins The Brian Nichols Show to discuss one of his latest pieces from AIER- "The Inconvenient Truth About the Green New Deal". With the rise of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her promoting of the "Green New Deal", Max took an economist's look at the topic to see the true economic consequences of passing a "Green New Deal" versus letting the market decide what the best solution would be.

    We also take some time to discuss Max's background, as he came to libertarianism from the left-side of the political isle.

    With that, I hope you enjoy this week's episode! It has been an absolute pleasure sharing these 50 episodes with you during 2018. I cannot wait to kick things off strong in 2019! Have a safe and happy holiday with you friends, family, and loved ones.

    Max's Bio: Max Gulker is an economist and writer who joined AIER in 2015. His research often focuses on free markets and technology, including blockchain and cryptocurrencies, the sharing economy, and internet commerce. He is a frequent speaker at industry conferences, especially on blockchain technology. Max’s research and writing also touch on other economic topics, including governance, competition, and small businesses.

    Max holds a PhD in economics from Stanford University and a BA in economics from the University of Michigan. Prior to AIER, Max spent time in the private sector, consulting with large technology and financial firms on antitrust and other litigation.

    Today I am joined by a familiar voice of The Brian Nichols Show, John Chang from Otters Talking Politics! You likely recognize John's voice from the intro of The Brian Nichols Show, but John also hosts a phenomenal libertarian podcast called Otters Talking Politics. I had the pleasure of joining John on his show back in the summer, and it was my pleasure to have John join The Brian Nichols Show to discuss some stuff he has been working on behind the scenes.

    Listen as John and I discuss his path to libertarianism (surprisingly, John started on the political left!), his fantastic article entitled "The Fourth Branch of Government", and then as we conclude by discussing my viral article from the beginning of the month over at The Libertarian Republic; "Stop Making Fun of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez!".

    And yes, to the last topic... it helps if you read past the headline!

    Alrighty, folks... we're back to our normal scheduling post-Thanksgiving! I hope you all enjoyed our Throwback/Flashback episodes during the break.

    My first guest after the break is Michael Autery! Michael is a Lieutenant in the United States Naval officer and the host of the podcast "Unalienable", which is all about the Constitution, what it means, and how it applies to current issues. In Michael's own words- "I swore to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies foreign and domestic, and I think of my podcast as an extension of that oath."

    Today's episode focuses on the sometimes confusing relationship between libertarianism, our United States' foreign policy, and those members of our armed forces. Michael and I dig into these topics, discussing why members of the military tend to support those libertarian-leaning candidates (such as Ron and Rand Paul), why some service members turn towards the GOP post-service rather than the LP, and how libertarians can be more effective in recruiting these service members into our ranks. We then conclude today's episode with a discussion on the ignorance of the average voter and what we should do to address the very real problem that an ignorant voter-base does to our democratic-republic system of government.

    Bio: Michael is a United States Naval officer (Lieutenant Junior Grade), becoming an officer in the spring of 2015.
    He is also the host of the podcast "Unalienable". Before the Naval Academy, he was an enlisted sailor (Petty Officer 3rd Class), serving a total of 9 years in the Navy (the last 4 as an officer).

    Michael is also an amateur bodybuilder. He has competed once before, and would like to compete again in the spring. He also hope to one day run for Congress upon his leaving the Navy. He has a total of two podcasts. He started "Unalienable" in April of 2018 and started "Philosophication with Ginger and the Beard" with his friend in August of 2018.

    Today I am joined by a familiar face (or voice, rather) or the We Are Libertarians Network- Chloe Anagnos! Chloe is a writer and digital marketer and has been a contributor for the American Institute for Economic Research
    (AIER) since 2017. Her work has been the subject of articles in FOX News, The Foundation for Economic Education (FEE), USA Today, CNN Money, and WIRED. She has been a writer, commentator, and panelist for media outlets around the country on subjects like political marketing, campaigning, and social media.

    Chloe and I start our conversation today discussing our roles in AFF (America's Future Foundation) in both Indianapolis and Philadelphia, respectively. AFF is a professional development network for individuals who believe in the power of personal liberty, entrepreneurship, and innovation, channeled through free-markets, to promote positive social change. AFF events bring together like-minded advocates in with each respective community to network, learn from each other, discuss key issues, and ultimately collaborate to improve themselves and the city as a whole.

    Both Indy and Philly AFF-chapters held seminars in recent months discussing the impacts of the opioid epidemic and the free-market solutions that are available to help mitigate the situation. Chloe and I discuss these AFF events at length, which then leads us to a more generic discussion about healthcare and the free-market solutions that are out there to help "fix" our broken healthcare system.

    Liberty Memes, Censorship, and Elections, Oh My!

    On today's episode, I'm joined by Matt Kibbe! Kibbe is the President and Chief Community Organizer at Free the People, an educational organization turning the next generation on to the values of liberty. He is also an Executive Producer at CRTV, where he produces “The Deadly Isms" and "Kibbe on Liberty".

    Listen as we first start off discussing Matt's first steps into libertarianism via the band Rush and their "2112" album, which pointed Matt towards the readings of Ayn Rand. Next, we discuss the recent censorship on Facebook of popular libertarian page, "Liberty Memes" and what libertarians should do in response.

    Next, we discuss Matt's organization, "Free the People", which is an educational organization turning the next generation on to the values of liberty by reaching those “liberty curious” through social media, video, and storytelling. After that, we discuss how libertarians should vote in the 2018 midterms, strategic voting, and the "lesser of two evils" argument. We also touch on two strong Libertarian campaigns in Gary Johnson for U.S. Senate in New Mexico and Larry Sharpe for Governor in New York.

    We start to conclude our conversation by discussing potential outcomes in the 2018 midterms, as well as how our nation will look after 2020 and 2024. And finally, we wrap up our discussion by looking at Matt's book, " Don’t Hurt People and Don’t Take Their Stuff: A Libertarian Manifesto."

    Matt's Bio: Matt Kibbe is the President and Chief Community Organizer at Free the People, an educational organization turning the next generation on to the values of liberty. We reach the “liberty curious” through social media, video, and storytelling. Kibbe is also an Executive Producer at CRTV, where he produces “The Deadly Isms,” a documentary series about the dangers of all flavors of authoritarianism.

    He is the Co-Founder and Partner at Fight the Power Productions, a strategic communications firm focused on video production, social media branding, and compelling storytelling.

    He is also a Distinguished Senior Fellow at the Austrian Economics Center in Vienna. In 2004 Kibbe founded FreedomWorks, where he served as President for 11 years. Steve Forbes said, “Kibbe has been to FreedomWorks what Steve Jobs was to Apple.”

    Against his better judgment, Kibbe occasionally gets involved in politics, serving as Senior Advisor to a Rand Paul SuperPAC, and creating AlternativePAC to support liberty candidates. Back when Yoda was a teenager, Kibbe worked as Chief of Staff on Capitol Hill, as Budget Director for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, and at the Republican National Committee.

    Dubbed “The Scribe” by the New York Daily News, Kibbe is most recently author of the #2 New York Times bestseller, Don’t Hurt People and Don’t Take Their Stuff: A Libertarian Manifesto. In his spare time he appears on Old Media, including FOX News, MSNBC, CNN and HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher. Most of his best material is lifted from his three liberty-minded cats, Roark, Ragnar, and Rearden.

    On today's episode, I'm joined by Nicholas Veser! Veser is best known for his role at Being Libertarian, doing his “Daily Headline” videos (among others), but has well over a decade experience in media production.

    Today, Nick joins me to discuss how we can market liberty to those outside the libertarian echo chambers. Sometimes, we have a habit of over-complicating our messaging and arguing about things that simply don't matter to those outside of our libertarian circles. Together, we discuss ways to break out of our echo chambers via grassroots and digital media and how to make liberty win again!

    Bio: J. Nicholas Veser began his career at an early age on stage and in front of the camera. During his attendance at West Virginia University on a full theatre scholarship, he became interested in hospitality and worked in the industry while performing on Equity stages throughout the Northeast. His creative and leadership strengths eventually landed him Director of Business Travel Sales for The Ritz Carlton, Battery Park in Manhattan. Soon after, he was drawn to the warm weather and endless opportunity of television in South Florida. He began his career with an International Media Company as a Creative Director and ultimately became the Senior Producer for several shows produced by the company. In 2008, he was promoted to Senior Vice President of Production where he thrived in the free and creative environment that he created for the many Scriptwriters, Production Coordinators, Editors, Traffic Coordinators, and Directors of Photography. Under his leadership, the team achieved tremendous success including 32 Telly Awards won over a 5-year span. In 2014, Nicholas left his career in Production after 11 years to own and operate a successful tech company.

    Although any degree of success is not without its fair share of challenges in 2015 he was faced with his most difficult hurdle yet when an unethical Florida Attorney General crippled his small family owned tech company. This only served to strengthen his resolve and he along with his wife Dawn have now become champions of the Liberty Movement in this country. Big business, political donations, and corruption led to the fight of their lives, and they have made a conscious decision to stand up in the face of injustice until the truth is revealed. Through all of his success and adversity he still considers his greatest achievement to be his 6-year-old son Ryan.
