  • Ep. 1980 What to Do When the Cancel Mob Comes for You

    28/09/2021 Duración: 32min

    You know the usual approach: apologize, beg for mercy, explain that you didn't really mean it, that you've "grown" -- we're all drearily familiar with the usual pathetic attempts to avoid judgment from lunatics. It never works. It never, ever works. Life is going to be difficult no matter what you do, but at least keep your dignity. Kevin Dolan, who has just founded Exit Group, helps people figure out the correct course of action in these situations, and indeed how to position themselves in such a way that they're insulated from attacks like these in the first place.

  • Ep. 1976 Is AOC the Best Libertarian in Congress? That's What Left-Leaning Libertarians Say

    22/09/2021 Duración: 36min

    Left-leaning libertarians have actually been claiming, if you can believe this, that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, whose worldview is altogether confused and state-centered, is actually the best libertarian in Congress. She is certainly better, they say, than Thomas Massie. Since this is insane, I decided to smash it. Sponsor: Getting clobbered by your competitors? Invisible in the search engines?
