Gene Epstein of The Soho Forum joins us to equip free market proponents with information on how to combat against misunderstandings about wealth, inequality, and other talking points the anti-capitalists are espousing.
Randy England joins us to talk about his book, Free is Beautiful, a tremendous work on the foundations of libertarianism from a biblical and Church history perspective.
If you were approached on the street and asked what libertarians believe, what would you say? Would it be succinct? Or would it take a few minutes? Doug and Norman discuss some of the basics of libertarianism, providing both succinct and elaborate answers to common questions about the non-aggression principle, property rights, justice, and more.
In this joint episode with Godarchy host Mike Maharrey, we discuss a recent article from Sojourners on Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's so-called biblical values of democratic socialism.

Sean Malone, Director of Media at FEE, joins us to talk about media bias, misinformation, and manipulation, as well as how to promote liberty with media in an oversaturated market for attention.

Roger McKinney, author of God is a Capitalist: Markets from Moses to Marx, joins us to talk about his book, and we dive into the topic of envy and why Christianity's emphasis on the individual enabled society to think about the world differently, suppressing envy of those around us, and participating in enabling the wealth we enjoy in the 21st century.
Jamin Andreas Hübner joins us to discuss how libertarian Christians can deal with the problem of being misrepresented by conservatives, progressives, or just about anybody.
Judge Andrew Napolitano joins us for a quick discussion on why he's a Christian AND a libertarian, what threatens our liberties in America today, and his “report card” for the Trump presidency so far.

Mike Munger from Duke University joins me to talk about the Third Economic Revolution that is currently underway. Most people think of it as the sharing economy, but it's far more than that, and Munger's analysis on it helps us think better as economists and libertarians. We also briefly discuss a Basic Income Guarantee and whether or not it's a good idea.
On Monday, January 7, LCI hosted its first live episode online, where he and Dr. Norman Horn discussed the origins of LCC, Norman's success at converting his family to be libertarians, our superfast incorporation story, and the journey starting as a blog about faith and liberty to an institute dedicated to equipping Christians to make the case for a free society.
