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.

    How many libertarian podcasts can you think of that go into detail as to what is happening in China? I mean, let's be real... most of it is just general commentary about propaganda, censorship, and planned economies.

    For over a year, today's guest has been working on a book about China and just started his new podcast, the "China Unraveled" podcast, to explain what's actually going on inside the country.

    Jason Szeftel joins the show to discuss all that's happened during China's quarantine, its multi-layered coverup, its evolving Orwellian propaganda, the virus's impacts on the international economic system, and more!

    What's the best way to advance the liberty movement? That's the age old question, isn't it? Well, our old friend Theodore from CrowdFundedGovernment.com has been thinking about that question in quite a bit of detail, and has an idea as to how libertarians and third parties can best find success in advancing their goals, and it's likely not the way you're thinking...

  • 122: Can Libertarians be Funny? -with Adam Nutter

    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 TigerFitness.com 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.

    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 [email protected] 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)! Listen as Elliott outlines his libertarian alternatives to that of Congressman Crenshaw and why he would be the best candidate to move liberty forward as representative from Texas' second congressional district.

    First 10 minutes: I don't usually do this, but I took some time to start the show to give you a quick update in regards to the LNC Convention taking place virtually this weekend, especially when considering that the once-favored candidate to win the nomination (Congressman Justin Amash) has withdrew his name from consideration.

    Post LP Chat: Now for the meat and potatoes of the episode! Bill Ottman, CEO of Minds.com, joins the show to discuss the importance of freedom as it pertains to our use of social media, traditional media, publishers, and more! Oh, and he shot me over an awesome Verified badge on Minds.com, so that's legit.

    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?

    Also, I'm sure you've noticed that we have a guy in our movement running for president who wears a giant yellow and black hat that states, "TAXATION IS THEFT". Well guess what... ya'll are in for a treat, as that guy, one Mr. Dan "Taxation is Theft" Behrman, is joining us this week for another fun-filled episode!

    And with that, Dan joins me to not only discuss his candidacy and big yellow hat, but to focus specifically on Dan's primary mission: reaching folks from the Republican and Democratic parties and showing them the value of liberty. We also take some time to discuss Dan's platform, "The New American Dream", and then wrap things up by digging into the 2020 election and the prospects of growing the liberty movement.

    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.

    Also, we dig into Eric's new podcast, "The Amash Files", and also do a quick update on life in the medical world, focusing specifically on life as a doctor who mainly deals with elective procedures.

    We're in the final stretch now, folks, as we're quickly approaching the Libertarian Party National Convention (assuming it's still going on in some capacity, as scheduled), meaning if you're a delegate or an active member of the party, now is the time to really sharpen up on your candidates!

    And of course, being the kind soul that I am, I am making that process as easy as possible for you, as I am joined by yet another one of our fantastic Libertarian candidates, Sam Robb!

    I had the great fortune of meeting Sam while moderating the Libertarian POTUS Debate over on "The Exchange" (along with the other amazing candidates!), which prompted Sam and I connecting to have him on the show to get to know more about his candidacy, his path to liberty, and his vision for the Libertarian Party as we approach the May convention!
