Were the COVID lockdowns a necessary means to help protect the public from an ambiguous public health threat, or were they a vast overreaction that will have devastating ramifications for years to come?
Jeffrey Tucker from AIER argues the latter, stating the lockdowns "are not science," but in fact, "they are brutality" on today's episode of The Brian Nichols Show.

How about this, a Wednesday episode! You guys are lucky, let me tell you what! Well, actually, I'm pretty lucky, as today I was once again joined by someone infinitely smarter than I am, as I was joined by Dr. Kyle Varner to discuss the medical response to COVID-19 and some of the innovations that have risen in response to the pandemic.
Listen as we discuss some of the drugs leading the way to fight the coronavirus, the regulations that have held doctors back from properly treating their patients, and a look ahead to the future of medicine in a post-COVID world.
Bio: Dr. Kyle Varner is a practicing hospitalist and expert in health care policy. In his upcoming book, White Coat Cartels, Dr. Varner uncovers the dark side of the US healthcare market.
Dr. Varner passionately stands for freeing the market and advocates cash-based services and medical tourism as the prevailing alternatives to the compromised healthcare system we are faced with today.
He is a highly sought-after writer and speaker, and has spoken at a number of conferences around the world. He shares his insider’s knowledge on the website DrVarner.com to give people the tools they need to take back control of their lives and start making informed decisions about their health.

As weeks go by with the economy stuck on pause due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many economists are starting to sound the alarm that the impact of our economy screeching to a halt could cause as much, if not more longterm death and prolonged hardship than the virus itself.
Dan J. Mitchell, a libertarian economist with a Ph.D. in Economics from George Mason University and founder for the Center for American Prosperity is amongst those economists raising his voice in concern. Mitchell joins The Brian Nichols Show today to discuss one of his more recent articles that discusses that very concern, titled, "The Temporary Tradeoff Between Health Outcomes and Economic Outcomes".
Listen as we discuss his article and then dig deeper into the dangers of a stagnant economy as it pertains to both the economic and physical health of the nation and more!

The race for the Libertarian Presidential nomination is heating up, and with that, so is my Libertarian Presidential interview series, as today I am joined by former Senator/Governor of Rhode Island and former Democratic Presidential candidate Lincoln Chafee!
Governor Chafee joins the show to discuss his candidacy and why he feels he is the best person to carry the Libertarian message forward in the 2020 general election. Listen as Governor Chafee lists out his three most important issues, who might be his VP candidate if nominated, a look into some of his past votes, and what the a President Chafee's response to the COVID-19 outbreak would look like.
