When Spike started his show, one of the people he most looked up to in the world of podcasting was Johnny Rocket, CEO of The Launch Pad Media and host of Blast Off With Johnny Rocket. Well Spike has now arrived, because that's exactly who he's having on this week.
Spike and Johnny will talk about what got them into podcasting for liberty, and the best way to communicate the message of freedom to the teeming masses, and why everyone needs to go out and buy the 2020 Libertarian Dad Bod Calendar so they, too, can have Spike and Johnny's sweet, sweet bodies hanging from their...wherever they hang their calendars.
It is far too early in this cycle for Spike to endorse a Presidential candidate and he's not really a fan of endorsing political candidates in general BUT MANNNNNNNNN does he like his guest tonight. Kim Ruff is running for the Libertarian Party nomination for President, and she has been incredible so far.
Kim is going to talk with Spike about her vision for America, while we share our love for legalizing almost everything.
America has been rocked by some mass shootings from shooters across the political spectrum, American gun owners have been rocked by some terrible gun control proposals from politicians across the political spectrum, and Donald Trump has packed the courts with judges from...pretty much one part of the political spectrum.

In this two-night event, Matt & Spike live-ravage the second round of Democratic presidential debates. It's like Mystery Science Theater 3000 but also all the sci-fi monsters are Democrats.
Will Marianne Williamson take this opportunity to heal the world's collective chakra? Yes.
Will Joe Biden unite the party around his message of a return to the normalcy of the Obama years? Almost assuredly no.
Let's face it: you're not a real libertarian unless you are regularly told that you are not a real libertarian. And my guests this week know all about the REALLY not real libertarians. Kevin Shaw and John Hudak are with Fakertarians, a group that calls out imposters in the libertarian movement. And my God, are there a lot of them. All of you, actually. None of you are real libertarians.
Anywho, John and Kevin are going to talk to me about the direction of the movement, why they started Fakertarians and who is the biggest Fakertarian of all.
This may be an unexpectedly triggering episode for some of Spike's followers. Let's find out together. Spike is joined tonight by Charity Nicole of Americans for Prosperity to talk about her journey into libertarianism. We're also going to look at some subjects that many in libertarian circles don't like talking about like climate change and income inequality, and we're going to apply free market solutions to deal with these issues.
