Had another great program on Vigilant Liberty Radio last night! We started the program with filmmaker Ben Howe (@BenHowe), founder of Mister Smith Media, who directed the brand-new documentary Bankrupt: How Cronyism and Corruption Brought Down Detroit. Continue reading VLR’s “Their Finest Hour” from February 10!
Had a great program on Vigilant Liberty Radio last night with my guest Doug Mataconis (@dmataconis), an attorney in private practice and prolific blogger at Outside the Beltway. We had a discussion across a wide range of issues, touching often on Doug’s expertise – and my layman’s interest – in the intersection of politics, law, and the Constitution.

Ed returns to TFH for his second appearance, and it’s been far too long since we’ve welcomed him to the program. Ed’s first appearance was the week before I made my incredible visit to the White House, so yes, it’s been quite a while!
UPDATE, 1/14: Well, it indeed was a great hour-long conversation with Ed Morrissey! At the half-way break, I played the trailer for Bankrupt, an upcoming documentary by Ben Howe (@BenHowe) of Mister Smith Media about the collapse of Detroit, Michigan. There will be a live broadcast of Their Finest Hour next week, Monday 1/20, and we’ll be welcoming the first guest host to the TFH microphone! Alex Kauffman (@alexkauff) of For the Republic! will have the first chair next week as I’ll be away on business. Please lend Alex your ears!

Last night, I got my Internet broadcasting year on Vigilant Liberty Radio off to a great start by welcoming my good friend, blogger with United Liberty and FreedomWorks, and indomitable libertarian Michelle Ray (@GaltsGirl) back to the program!
We had a fantastic hour-plus discussion that touched on everything from federal regulations, to the new Federal Reserve chair woman, to “millennial Marxists”, to two eerily prescient works of fiction by Daniel Suarez – Daemon and Freedom™- that seem to be coming to pass more and more with each day.
It was only right that I had Michelle on as my first guest of the new year as she’s to be largely credited (blamed? LOL) for setting me on this path from the day she had me as a guest on the old “Mitchell & Ray” CDN program nearly two years ago.
Finally, at the program’s close, I made an announcement about a commemorative project I’m leading for the 70th anniversary of D-Day, the invasion of France by the Americans, British, and Canadians that is upcoming this June 6, 2014. I’ve already assembled a great crew of bloggers and broadcasters from across the Internet to assist in this project and if we pull it off, it will be a lasting tribute that will hopefully outlive us all.
We’re going to try and retell the events of June 6, 1944 in the style of a 1940s radio show that will be broadcast on VLR for the 70th anniversary in honor of all the brave men who fought that day and those after in the liberation of Europe. The program will have a modern twist though as we’ll tell the events from the perspective of “embedded reporters” with the Allied armies as they went ashore. Stay tuned for periodic updates on the project, and if you’re interested in volunteering your talents to it – we have need for writers, editors, voices, post-production, etc. – please let me know via a comment below, a tweet, or an email!

Oh, and don’t forget to tune back into VLR tonight (1/7) at 10E/9C/8M/7P for the second edition of the LIVE Roundtable of Extreme Liberty! Taylor Millard (@EyeDesertBlog) and I will have a panel of three incredible women – Becca Lower (@BeccaJLower) of Own The Narrative, Christine Rousselle (@crousselle) of Townhall.com, and “Miss” Ruth Vine (@MissRuth1021) of Misfit Politics – for more talk on “millennial Marxism”, Senator Rand Paul vs. the NSA, and the whole idiocy of “PIV=rape”.
My “Their Finest Hour” program on Monday, December 16th was a great discussion of immigration and border security issues! We proved that we could actually have a civil, engaging discussion with differing opinions on problems and solutions without resorting to name calling or anger.
My guests for the show were attorney Sam Rosado, who has written extensively on immigration and the issue of outreach by conservatives and libertarians to the Latino/Hispanic community, blogger Paul-Gregory Matuszak of Mental Akido (his post on the show topic), who was once a border resident in Arizona, and Katrina Jørgensen, whose story of being stuck in the bureaucratic nightmare of the legal immigration process to the United States trapped her husband Kai overseas when she was hospitalized and needed him the most.
Thanks to all of them for a great show, and this was a milestone for me too as it was the first webcast I did where I was entirely self-produced and didn’t really have a hitch!
