In this episode of Half-Hour Liberty Hour, the Dynamically Drunken Duo change things a bit with a beer-focused episode. Using Charlie Papazian's Unspoken Passion recipe, Brett and Rob walk you through the basics of making a batch of homebrew. Although they forget to discuss some very important issues when making beer (such as proper cleaning and sanitation, the equipment necessary for brewing, etc.), hopefully you are pushed into experimenting with homebrewing yourself by this episode. And of course, they have to talk about politics. In this episode you will learn:

  • How beer saved the world
  • The (very) basics of homebrewing
  • What has been going on in the lives of Brett and Rob since last summer
  • How homebrewing can help lead you to living a more liberty lifestyle
  • A brief history of homebrewing

So sit back, relax, have a beer if you can, and maybe you'll be inspired to start homebrewing yourself.

This Episode's Drink of Choice: Beer and lots of it (Ninkasi Total Domination IPA)

This bonus episodelet was a segment cut for content from Episode 029 - Why Capitalism? In this very short segment, Brett and Rob discuss how the price of mass storage has greatly dropped since the mid-1990s (and Brett even makes an allusion to the 1980s) because the free market controlled the prices, not the State. Even though the Internet is never mentioned, the only way that your devices became ubiquitous is due to the cheap price of mass storage. You can thank capitalism for the device on which you are listening to this episodelet.

Can you believe it? A new episode of Half-Hour Liberty Hour? Say it ain't so!

It is so. Rob has finally had a couple of days off from his new job and found an episode the Dynamically Drunken Duo recorded while he was on vacation in July 2018. It's the guys' first remote-recorded episode, and boy did it take some time to edit. They think you'll like it. There are two more episodes, both recorded when Rob was briefly in Portland in November 2018, that are due to be edited and released in the future. Keep an eye out for them.

In this episode of Half-Hour Liberty Hour, Brett and Rob discuss why any trade war, especially one with China, is a bad idea. They lay out the reasons from both economic and social perspectives, with a heavy emphasis on liberty (would you expect anything less?). So sit back, have a drink if you can, and listen to why America will never survive a trade war.

This Episode's Drink of Choice: Bacardi Silver Rum
