TFH live on VLR from 2/3 – America Is Beautiful

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.

Their Finest Hour LIVE, January 13: Ed Morrissey Returns! (UPDATE: Show Replay!)

I’m back with a new, live Their Finest Hour broadcast on Vigilant Liberty Radio Monday, January 13, 2014 at 10pm Eastern (9C/8M/7P) for a spin around the issues of the day with Ed Morrissey (@EdMorrissey) of HotAir.com!

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!

We’ll be talking about the Chris Christie “Bridgegate”/”Bridgeghazi” scandal and what effect it might have on the 2016 picture, once again getting another disappointing jobs report out of the Bureau of Labor Statistics and probably whatever else Ed has going on Monday at HotAir.
You can catch the show via Vigilant Liberty Radio’s page on Spreaker, as well as download or stream all the great past VLR programs! You can also listen live or to past shows via Spreaker’s iOS or Android mobile device apps!

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! Stream below, and of course you can click “Spreaker” in the player to be taken to the site for MP3 download for offline listening!

But, why just listen when you can interact? There’s always the #TFH hashtag to use on Twitter, but much better to join the program in VLR’s registration-free chatroom with embedded show player!
Talk to you all Monday night, don’t forget to follow me (@allanbourdius), the blog & show feed (@TFHBlogAndShow) and keep those VLR follows (@VigilantLiberty) and likes (VLR on Facebook) coming!
And while you’re waiting for show time, how about checking out some of my posts here if you haven’t been keeping up? Thanks to all my readers & listeners; you all make this so much fun!

Everybody at Goldwater Gal Media, VLR, and TFH extends their sincere condolences to Doug Mataconis (@dmataconis) of Outside the Beltway. Doug was the originally scheduled guest for the January 13, 2014 show, but his father passed away during the night of January 10-11. Our thoughts and prayers are with Doug and his family, and we’ll be sure to get him rescheduled as soon as he’s again available!

Roundtable of Extreme Liberty – January 7, 2014 show!

Taylor Millard (@EyeDesertBlog) and myself were back on Vigilant Liberty Radio (@VigilantLiberty) on Tuesday, January 7 with the Roundtable of Extreme Liberty. We had a bit of those “VLR growing pains” and “open source production values” when Taylor’s computer crapped out as we went live, but we were able to get the show going and had a great discussion with our three entertaining panelists!

Joining us were three fantastic women: Becca Lower (@BeccaJLower) of Own the Narrative and Lowering the Boom, Christine Rousselle (@crousselle) of Townhall.com, and “Miss” Ruth Vine (@MissRuth1021) of Misfit Politics.

We kicked off the show by letting the three ladies rip apart the militant feminist “PIV=rape” idiocy, and went from there into talking about Rolling Stone magazine’s piece by Jesse Myerson about how all Millennials should be craving to be Marxists.

A great time was had by all, so give the show a listen! If you want to listen off-line, click “Spreaker” in the player below and you’ll be taken to the page where you can download the recording. Spreaker also has apps available for iOS and Android!

We’ll be back on Tuesday, January 14 with another great panel and more great topics!


Their Finest Hour LIVE from January 6, 2014!

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”.


The Roundtable of Extreme Liberty from December 17!

Tuesday, December 17th was a big night on Vigilant Liberty Radio! Between myself and my VLR colleague Taylor Millard, we’ve resurrected Taylor’s old periodic podcast, The Roundtable of Extreme Liberty, as a live panel show!

Our first show was a real blast. We discussed the recent federal court decision on Utah’s bigamy law, and whether or not this was common sense, the end of civilization as we know it, or…what?

Joining Taylor and myself were Neal Dewing of Pocket Full of Liberty, whose post on the topic spurred the discussion, and Felicia “Fishie” Cravens of Free Radical Network. I think I had a pretty epic rant, which begins at about the 15-minute point.

In any case, The Roundtable of Extreme Liberty will be holding the Tuesday 10pm slot on VLR for the foreseeable future. Taylor and I will be splitting host and producer duties, and we’ll be bringing in a lot of great guests to let it fly on whatever topic we choose for the week.
