Due to medical reasons — don’t worry, it’s nothing serious and I expect to recover quickly — I will not be broadcasting for the next two weeks. I’ll return on October 21, hopefully with a live or pre-recorded interview with John Allison, author of the recently released book, The Financial Crisis and the Free Market Cure: Why Pure Capitalism is the World Economy’s Only Hope. (Mr. Allison has agreed to the interview, but we’ve yet to confirm an exact date.)
In the meantime, I invite you to catch up on any of the “‘Intervention’ for Gary Johnson Voters Series” podcasts you may have missed. (And feel free to share this post with anyone who you think may benefit from listening to the shows.):
(Links to the recorded podcasts are embedded in show descriptions.)
8/19 – Discussed the proximate cause for starting the series this week vs. waiting a few weeks: a Libertarian Party e-mail bragging about Gary Johnson’s ability to deprive Romney of votes in “battleground” states.
8/26 – Addressed some questions about the propriety of voting for Romney-Ryan, and discussed the issue of energy subsidies under Obama. (An issue that Romney managed to address fairly well during the first Presidential debate.)
9/9 – An entire episode devoted to foreign policy. (Yes, there was plenty to talk about, even before the events starting on 9/11 this year.)
9/15 – An interview with Leonard Peikoff, at the end of which the discussion turned to politics and the upcoming election. (Also, if you haven’t seen it yet, check out Leonard’s excellent, concise post on the election.)
Also, although it wasn’t originally intended as part of the “Intervention” series, you might want to listen to the 4/29 show, in which we discussed Obama’s nihilism with respect to the Office of the President itself.
Have a great couple of weeks, and I look forward to rejoining you on October 21!
