This 30. September 2013 show was broadcast from the Sovereign Southern Studio on the Liberty Radio Network and the No Agenda Stream with special guest Fergus Hodgson, the Stateless Man and editor-in-chief of PanAm Post.

Fergus is a New Zealander by birth but a true international man in life and practice. We met a few years ago and have collaborated on projects ever since. I’m proud to be a part of his newest website PanAm Post, where I write a fortnightly column called “Question the Narrative.”

For our show, we talked about Fergus’ new project, the idea of borders, the paradox of independence and statist government, why people are fleeing to South America, agrarian land reform, the importance of independent media analysts, making a career out of journalism, moving abroad for work, and more.

Rethinking Nationalism on The Stateless Man

The-Stateless-Man

It was a pleasure to speak with my good friend Fergus Hodgson on his radio show The Stateless Man, broadcast on the Overseas Radio Network on 21. January, 2013.

We spoke about my article published on his website, tiled “The Fading Concept of Nationalism.”

We also brushed on indoctrination of the young, patriotic myths, the freeing capacity of technology, thinking beyond borders, and the fading star of nationalism worldwide.

Listen to our conversation here, also included on the Liberty In Exile RSS feed and on iTunes.

The Virtues and Fallacies of Higher Education on The Stateless Man

Recently, I was invited to participate in the discussion on ‘The Stateless Man’ with radio host, economist, and all-round world citizen Fergus Hodgson.

Fergus Hodgson, host of The Stateless Man

The program broadcasts on the Overseas Radio Network, a new venture in internet communication aimed at expatriates and internationally-minded listeners across the globe.

The subject of our exchange can be summed up perfectly by the first guest’s book, Lies, Damned Lies, and College Admissions by education entrepreneur Arvin Vohra.

Instead of actively encouraging wayward youths to throw down thousands of borrowed dollars on an education that provides no guarantee of job security and accomplishment, Vohra explains that exploring skills and testing entrepreneurial passions may be the best alternative.

Here is the audio of the first hour.

In the second hour, we were joined by two guests.

Author James Altucher

Firstly was renowned author and blogger James Altucher, a vocal proponent of forgoing the four years of upper education.

Alucher makes the case that newly-emancipated youths facing college deadlines should instead invest their time, money, and energy into more individualistic endeavours, such as writing a book or creating a business online.

Listen to our exchange here.

Lastly, Fergus’ good friend and musician Shane Hachey joined us on the program to divulge into the debt-sustained model of college education that has saddled the student generation with more school debt than credit card debt for the first time in history.

The last segment can be heard here.

Listen for new broadcasts of TSM every Wednesday from 18h00-20h00 EST.
