From TomWoods Ep. 1304 How I Got into Harvard. I interviewed Tom about this and related questions since my 15 year old son is nearing college age and I was curious. From Tom’s shownotes:

Stephan Kinsella, the libertarian theorist and author of Against Intellectual Property, asked me the other day about my college admission experience. We are each the parent of a tenth grader, so the topic of college comes up in our households. I didn’t think I had much interesting to say about it, but we decided he would in effect host this episode and ask me questions. The resulting conversation turned out to be great!

Meet the hosts


  • I knew Christopher Cantwell from the beginning, I liked him for a very short time, then he made it his job to create immature bickering. And maybe with this I’m only giving someone like this ammo. I told him awhile back that when he was looking to get published on Lew Rockwell for the first time that he shouldn’t expect to be hosted on a site like that, he’s way too low brow. He’s been published twice. This guy is gaining traction merely from bickering, not infighting as he calls it, to me infighting (as Chris would agree) is just sparring, it’s a helpful way to get stronger. Chris spreads hate and divides people over issues they agree on by focusing on definitions. The question by Tom Woods on who is destroying what libertarianism is starts at 14:00 and many great people are mentioned. However, if you want full context I recommend the whole interview. What are your thoughts?

  • I’m an Anesthesiologist and am trying to reach out to other Anesthesiologists in the nation to request their support. This year at the society meeting (over 15K attendees) the ASA has Dr. Michael Portman, an economist, head of the Harvard Business school… as the keynote speaker.  I’d like to counter with an Austrian economist at next year’s conference in Boston.  I’ve corresponded with Tom Woods, and now just need to get the ASA to hear from members and/or attendees, that they’d like the ASA to invite Dr. Woods. I’d be most grateful for any and all help getting ASA members, anesthesiologists, nurse anesthetists, anesthesia assistants, to contact the ASA and encourage them to invite Dr. Tom Woods. [email protected] even if you could forward my request to folks you believe may be able to assist, I’d be grateful!   thanks!

  • I mentioned tonight that I was reading and re-reading The Collected Stories of Eudora Welty. I (and many others much more qualified than me) consider her a master of the short story. She is mainly known for the Comedic Southern Story (my words), but she can be very powerful as can be seen here (I suggest you read the Jackson Free Press setup and then read the piece)…
