Details

As a freethinker, are you looking through binoculars out at the world in the safety of a foxhole? Get fuel for your soul and intellectual ammunition by listening to The Secular Foxhole podcast, in order to fight for the separation of religion and state. Blair chose this name (The Secular Foxhole) to dispute the myth that there are no atheists in foxholes, but also as a place to share ideas and defend Free Speech. The co-hosts both advocate the separation of Church and State, but also Economics and State. In short, Liberalism, Individualism, and Capitalism.

We welcome back Brian Simpson to talk about his 2005 book, Markets Don't Fail. Tune in for a lively discussion covering several topics found in most/all economic textbooks, and why those books are misleading, at best, and outright false, at worst. In essence, we prove that, Markets Don't Fail.
