Complete Liberty Podcast promotes total respect for self-ownership, property rights, and personal choice—amidst the authoritarian/obedience-oriented political and psychological memes in American culture (and elsewhere). Basically, governments and all they entail are the problem, not the solution. Voluntarism (or market anarchism, or anarcho-capitalism) and customary law principles, in accordance with reason and dignity, spell the solution.

The easiest way to podcatch is to load all the past episodes into iTunes:
http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewPodcast?id=254220370

Alternatively, you can use the libsy rss feed for all past episodes:
http://completeliberty.libsyn.com/rss

However, the comments on the Libsyn page have been deactivated, so it's best to use the Complete Liberty Podcast category feed here if you want to throw in your two cents :)
feed://completeliberty.com/xml/magazine/category/91697.xml

Also, the first ten episodes of Complete Liberty Podcast are actually the audiobook (shows 11 and higher are the podcast episodes). So, if you'd like to read the book first and/or you're new to the concepts of a voluntary society, here's the page to begin listening: http://completeliberty.com/audiobook.html

(The pdf and html files can be found in the "CL Book" links in the site's menu above.)
