He is also a frequent contributor to LewRockwell.com.

We touched on some of the themes in Dr. Anderson’s breakdown of Elizabeth Warren’s so-called 11 Commandments of Progressivism.

Along with Dr. Anderson’s blog, take some time to look through his Mises Institute and LRC article archives.

I am thrilled to announce that Brian Jacobson helped me out in hosting this episode and the hope here is that he will be able to do this pretty consistently. Brian writes regularly here at TRL and I always look forward to reading what he has to say.

We had a blast talking to Dr. R.C. Sproul Jr!  Sproul-JrDr. Sproul is the rector of theology and chair of philosophy and theology at Reformation Bible College, and a teaching fellow for Ligonier Ministries. Dr. Sproul is author of several books, including Biblical Economics, a pastor of Ascension Presbyterian Church, and hosts the daily podcast Jesus Changes Everything.

In this episode, we discussed with Dr. Sproul some of his background in economics and political theory, how he became interested in it, and why Christians should know Austrian economics. We had him comment on the nature of economics, he said a few things about foreign policy, and also about the relationship between Christianity and liberty; and he even gave a friendly jab toward “anarchist” ideals (which we may comment on later).  We were able to integrate some of the questions that you readers had provided for us, but not all of them. Which simply means we will have to have him back on!

First official podcast! As I note in the podcast, I am excited to say that production help is on the way!  Hopefully the audio quality and general aesthetics will be improving as I have accepted the help of several individuals who are willing to aid this process.  I am also looking to generally have more people on besides just myself, to allow for more conversation and less monologuing.  Interviews are beginning to line up too! Stay tuned… and all that jazz.

Last year, Dr. Mohler was asked by Todd Friel what he thought of Christians and libertarianism.  His response was widely viewed in Christian social media circles.  In this episode, I give an overview of my thoughts on his statements.

Here are some other efforts to respond to Dr. Mohler:
