Alrighty, strap in. This is a marathon episode.
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.
Oh, and on a final note, check out the BONUS episode I released where I interviewed LP POTUS candidate and LP activist Keenam Dunham ( https://briannichols.fireside.fm/keenan-dunham)

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!

Two episodes in one week! How about that!?
Your second episode for the week features former Libertarian congressional candidate and current Los Angeles County Libertarian Party Chair, Angela McArdle! Angela has been busy out in LA despite the COVID-19 lockdown, as she is leading "Protest The Lockdown: Los Angeles, CA" on May 1!
Listen as Angela and I discuss the planned protest in LA in response to the COVID-19 lockdown, the opportunity the liberty movement has during the pandemic to educate and inspire people and bring people into the movement, and then wrap things up by discussing the seemingly(?) inevitable Libertarian Party presidential contest: Justin Amash vs. Jacob Hornberger.

Welcome to The Brian Nichols Show! For you first time listeners, I am your humble host, Brian Nichols, and here at The Brian Nichols Show, our goal is to educate, enlighten, and inform.
Today is no exception, as I am joined by Congressman Justin Amash. Congressman Amash has been making headlines as of late, with his being the first Republican in Congress to assert that President Trump committed potentially impeachable offenses in regards to his actions and potential obstruction of justice as it relates to the Mueller Investigation.
Congressman Amash joins The Brian Nichols Show to discuss his tenure in Congress, the principles that he leans on when crafting legislation, the rationale behind his public statements regarding President Trump's "impeachable offenses", and the manner in which populism and nationalism have taken over the Republican Party in an era of Trump.
Later, we discuss Congressman Amash's fierce opposition to the surveillance state, focusing on his staunch opposition to the Patriot Act, FISA, and his recent attempts to reign in FISA Section 702, which would have helped put a stop to warrantless FISA surveillance.
We conclude our conversation by addressing the elephant (or porcupine?) in the room... Will Congressman Amash seek to fight President Trump at the ballot box in 2020 by primarying Trump as a Republican, or rather as the top of the Libertarian Party ticket?
