"The authoritarian right is taking control. From Viktor Orban in Hungary, to Brexit in Britain, to Donald Trump in America, nationalists are launching an all-out assault on liberal values."
That's the message today's guest bings to The Brian Nichols Show, as political journalist Ian Dunt joins the program to discuss his thought-provoking new book, "How To Be A Liberal: The Story of Liberalism and the Fight for its Life",

With commentators proclaiming that World War III is just around the corner due to increasing tensions between the United States and Iran, the United States' foreign policy is at the forefront of the national conversation. With conservative pundits like Ben Shapiro singing the praises of President Trump's more hawkish approach to the increasing tensions with Iran (which Shapiro has seemingly toned down in recent days), I thought it would be a great opportunity to have a former self-described "neocon" who ended up becoming a "foreign policy realist" on the show to discuss their own personal growth and change of mindset.
Joining the show is Pratik Chougule. Chougule is a researcher at Boston College's Center for International Higher Education, where he is writing a book about American universities in the greater Middle East. He was previously an executive editor at The American Conservative and managing editor at The National Interest. During the 2016 election cycle, Chougule served as policy coordinator on the presidential campaigns of Donald Trump and Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee. From 2008-2009, Chougule was a George W. Bush appointee at the State Department in the Office of the Under Secretary for Arms Control and International Security. Chougule graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Brown University and holds a JD from Yale Law School.
Listen as Chougule discusses his take on foreign policy, his critiques of the traditional neocon/hawkish foreign policy, the rising tensions of Iran, and finally his perspective of where the world stands after the 2020 election with regards to foreign relations and policy.

Hey folks! First off, I need to apologize... This week's audio isn't up to the standards that you've come to expect from The Brian Nichols Show. For whatever reason, my computer decided to use the wrong mic setting while recording, which makes my commentary sound more tinny and distant than normal... but besides that, you're all in for a treat, as this week, I am joined by Jose Nino to discuss common gun control myths and to discuss how the US should approach the tragedy in Venezuela.
Bio: In addition to authoring The 10 Myths of Gun Control, José Niño writes for Ammo.com, Big League Politics, Gunpowder Magazine, and the Mises Institute, some of the most pro-freedom outlets on the web. His articles have also been featured on Business Insider, Infowars, and Zero Hedge. He also appeared on the Tom Wood Show and Dana Loesch’s show Relentless.

On this special episode of The Brian Nichols Show, Brian is joined with former White House/Congressional policy adviser and former FreedomWorks Vice President, Dean Clancy! Brian and Dean dig into the the latest budget deals, the Libertarian Party and promoting libertarian policy, and discuss how we can address the gun control issue after the latest public shooting.
Is the Trump budget actually a fiscally conservative budget? Is it better to have a government controlled by one political party, or split control between two political parties? Is the Libertarian Party actually the best means to promote libertarian principles and to enact libertarian policy? And finally, how do gun rights activists win the debate with gun control advocates?
