I was delighted to join Peter R. Quinones of The Libertarian Institute on his podcast, Free Man Beyond the Wall, to pimp the great Granite State, and convince more people to move to the Free State of New Hampshire. We talk about how NH consistently ranks best for quality of living, its low taxes environment (no sales or personal income tax), how NH’s business tax rate is declining quarterly, how business-friendly the state generally is, and how Granite Staters recently worked together across the aisle to abolish the death penalty. Take a listen now…
LISTEN NOW… With the advent of the year’s first major snowstorm, we’re taking a break from politics to discuss how to survive and thrive during New Hampshire’s long, cold winters. From recipes and fitness tips to metaphysical speculation, your hosts have some thoughts. Find out what they are on this week’s Told You So! LISTEN NOW…
[PS: This episode could also be called, OMFG, what did I commit to learning to do? Whyyyyyy??? LOL]
LISTEN NOW… Twitter is banning political ads, Facebook will drop the ban hammer on a whim, and YouTube has been booting creators left and right in pursuit of a less volatile political brew – but does that mean that free speech is under fire? Dive into the complexities of deplatforming and what it means for the First Amendment with your hosts on this week’s Told You So! LISTEN NOW…
LISTEN NOW… Police have gotten more and more involved in people’s everyday lives – whether it’s tackling high schoolers for vaping or taking on the mantle of Halloween Commissar, stories about police keep popping up in the headlines. Can anyone hold them accountable? Dive into the subject of law enforcement overreach with your hosts on this week’s episode of Told You So! LISTEN NOW…
SIGN THE PETITION urging Governor Sununu to restore public trust and release the secret list of bad NH cops.
Remember to Google “botched SWAT raids,” here’s some recent news on asset forfeiture as discussed in the episode, and this resource is pretty interesting if you want to look at what kind of settlements are being paid out in the 20 biggest U.S. cities. It’s truly the worst of all worlds when there is no oversight or accountability, and then afterwards, payments for bad actors are authorized thus punishing the tax payer. I wonder what the stats look like for NH?
LISTEN NOW… As human societies have grown and changed, values and moral reasoning have shifted along with the characteristics and beliefs of their people. But in broad strokes, there have been three orientations – honor cultures, dignity cultures, and victimhood cultures. The growth of dignity cultures in the 19th and 20th centuries has left some longing for the vigor and energy of an honor culture, while the slings and arrows of modern society have created enclaves of victimhood cultures around the world. Which way should we be going? Find out with your hosts on this week’s episode of Told You So! LISTEN NOW…
From the Brian Nichol’s Show page:
“ABOUT THIS EPISODE
Want to really “live free”? Well, guess what. Today’s your lucky day.
Today I’m joined by Carla Gericke from the Free State Project, which is a historic mass migration of more than 20,000 people who have pledged to move to New Hampshire for liberty.
Today I wanted to have Carla join the show to talk more about the Free State Project, the work they’ve been doing, and how the prospects of liberty look for New Hampshire. We also dig into Carla’s personal path to liberty, her activism, and her candidacy for NH Senate.”

From fentanyl and vaping related deaths to worries over synthetic cannabinoids, America has prohibition on the brain. But trying the same old policies only harder hasn’t helped – is there a better way to approach our burgeoning drug abuse problem? Join your hosts on an exploration of how fentanyl was introduced to the US market, how Chinese companies have made a mint exporting an alphabet soup of new chemical compounds, and how America can take a new approach to drug policy.

Mentioned in this podcast:
I love the “Memories” feature on Facebook, especially when it reminds me of something positive I totally forgot about, like this podcast from 2012 with Jack Spirko of the Survival Podcast. If you’re not listening to Jack’s show (and mine!), you are missing out!
Even better, was receiving this fan mail afterwards:
“Hello Carla, My Significant Man and I enjoy the Survival Podcast. Your interview with Jack Spirko was full of sustenance and had a palpable resonance. It is refreshing and easier for me- and wonder if not for most women- to embrace a message that is focused on what can be done to effect a change, steps to take, and finding some joy in it. Even during the account of your unjust arrest you were rational, practical, and even charming.
Passionate, articulates a clear message, has a keen mind and an eye on the prize all the while coming across as self-effacing, happy, and funny… please host a podcast! [EDIT: I now do!] There is plenty to rant about and so it is appropriate to have people ranting, but it was refreshing to listen to a joyous, encouraging, and- I must admit- woman’s voice of reason.”
