The Podcast: Yemen

I have returned. Today I uploaded my first podcast episode since Donald Trump took office. However, this episode is all about Obama (and Hillary). In it, I try to break down the history of not only the conflict in Yemen, but the United States direct support for the Yemeni government and the Saudi Arabia bombing & blockade campaign.

For all the talk about how Russia is guilty for Assad’s crimes. The media is very quick to ignore America’s guilt in the crimes of Saleh, Hadi and Riyadh.

The podcast can be found here.

*EPISODE NOTE: I keep sourcing Patrick Cockburn as the author of an article I quote. The author is actually his brother, Andrew Cockburn. Both amazing journalists.

The Voluntary Exchange Podcast

This is a different one..

My cousin & I having a conversation in my car driving in the snow. Highly unedited and filled with lovely adult language. Topics include: Fort Sumner, Crony Capitalism and the confusion of the “Kill the Banks” mentality (hint: Wall Street created the Central Bank).
