Guest Hosting the Peter Schiff Show Thursday

11th October 2011      by: Tom Woods     

I’ll be filling in for Peter Schiff again on Thursday.  Should be a great show — my guests will be Judge Andrew Napolitano, author of the new book It Is Dangerous to Be Right When the Government Is Wrong: The Case for Personal Freedom, and Prof. C. Bradley Thompson, author of Neoconservatism: An Obituary for an Idea.  The program airs live from 10am-12pm Eastern. Tune in!

Unlearn the Propaganda!

    Afraid not; paying to attend is beyond my ability or desire.  Doesn’t Mr. Schiff have enough money already? This is definitely a a game changer and, in this economy, not an incentive to many.  Sorry.

    Oops, my bad and for that I apologize!

    Just caught the last few minutes of the show and the sound quality was very good.  Tom, thank you for the heads up on my earlier error.  I will look forward to hearing you on Thursday.

    Hmm, I’ve heard this idea that someone who has “enough money” is obligated to share their wealth.

    He loses money on the radio show. It’s only a hobby to him. We’re lucky he enjoys it enough to keep doing it anyway.

    The $5.95 or whatever it is a month is not much at all and well worth it even if you pick up just one thing a week that is useful when investing..  However, as far as being free there aren’t many people with jobs who can fire up a radio show on the computer while at work and sit there listening for 2 hours constantly..   So for them its not free.   I could listen free but prefer the edited version so I don’t waste time with commercials and so I can download it and listen to it at another time on a mobile device if needed. 

     I’m sure it takes a good deal of money to set up and the price is reasonable, though they do have a high number of technical issues still.    Unfortunately, Schiff is more useful when it comes to sharing his knowledge of the economy (not necessarily stock and asset class picks) than preaching to the choir and having guests on about liberty, which is sadly over half the show.  This is my 3rd month, I may not continue if he doesn’t find a niche’ worth the time investment.   I have a few hours a day to study news, columns on investing and the economy, etc.   I don’t have time for hearing stuff I already know repeated over and over.    “less regulation, less government, stick to the constitution”.   There, I just  saved him 100 hours of programming this year.

    Awesome!  

    Radio certainly is not as easy as people think, it is very difficult to come up with stuff to fill the air for 10 minutes, let alone 2 hours.  I must admit, you did a pretty good job last time at keeping the pace going.  Just to attempt to give a little constructive criticism, the only thing that I really noticed is that you had trouble changing gears.  But, if you don’t do full radio shows a lot, it takes a while to get the timing down.  

    Last time you brought in a few Mises folk to help in the endeavor and it worked out great.  This time, you have Napolitano, which tells me the show will turn out pretty darn good (he knows exactly when to keep something going or change gears).  I am not familiar with Thompson, so I’ll guess I’ll have to tune in to see.  Break a leg, Tom.  You’re in the hot-seat again…..  ;)
