Our guest this week is Andy Craig, CEO & Founder of Plain English Finance. We talk about his book “Own the World,” which is about the importance of learning to invest; why everyone can and should manage their own money.

This show is a short conversation Steve and I had while waiting to interview Andy Craig. We talked about parenting, specifically Alfie Kohn’s great book Unconditional Parenting. Since the topic of this opening discussion was dramatically different then the topic of our interview of Andy Craig (which was finance/investing), I decided to break the discussion up into two separate podcasts.
Here is a link to Wes Bertrand’s reading of the book Unconditional Parenting, as discussed during the show:
This week Dan Carlin joins us to mix a little history into the discussion. Dan is the host of a political podcast called Common Sense, as well as one on history called Hardcore History. On the latter, he recently did a series on the Mongol empire, and that is the discussion for today’s show.
I had a blast doing this show, getting to pick Dan’s brain on a variety of points about the colorful story of the Mongols. Check out his web site for more:
In this week's show we revisit a question from the last podcast, is society truly progressing? To help us answer the question we have a round table discussion. Hosts Steve and Chris are joined by previous guests Wes Bertrand of the Complete Liberty Podcast and Brett Veinotte from the Schools Sucks Project. Listen to the show to discover why we almost titled this episode "The Philosophy of Hookers."
Steve returns from vacation to engage in one of the more unusual podcasts we have ever done. Steve subjects Chris Stefanick to a scenario in which he changes the incentives of the scenario through a series of questions.
Recently Steve has been experimenting with this series of questions in an effort to expose the perverse incentives behind government redistribution. Obviously the experiment is still evolving and Steve would gladly accept different scenarios and questions to add to his experiments.

On today’s show we talk to Dayna Martin, the UnNanny. We discuss her book, Radical Unschooling, and the odyssey she has been on with her family living the life style. It was amazing to hear how different life can be if you do not follow the main stream paradigm.
I encourage you to check out more of the great work she is doing:
This week’s guest is Wes Bertrand from the Complete Liberty podcast. We cover psychology, ethics, parenting, statism, nutrition; seemingly no topic is off limits!
Wes is so well rounded he has four different websites, each with a different focus. I encourage you to explore them.
Brett Venoitte of The School Sucks Project joins us to discuss the reason why he does not call our school system the 'Education System', the chief reason is that education is not the goal of our current school system. Brett elaborates on how he does not think reforming our current system will do any good.
Along with many criticisms of the current public school system Brett also gives his vision of restoring critical thinking skills into a truly educational system, something our current system lacks.
