I had the pleasure of being interviewed by Ian Freeman and Mark Edge on Free Talk Live for a full hour at Shire Fest prior to PorcFest. This is the forty-third episode of The LAVA Spurt, Rodger on Free Talk Live.

Marc Clair invited me to be on the Lions of Liberty podcast, “Libertarians in Living Rooms Drinking Liquor” with John Odermatt of Felony Friday and Chris Spangle of We are Libertarians. I opened a bottle of Johnny Walker Double Black and went to school on Chris! This is one you don't want to miss. This is the forty-second episode of The LAVA Spurt, Debating on Lions of Liberty.

What can you do to help you live a voluntary life today? I talk to Jake Desyllas from The Voluntary Life podcast about just that. This is the forty-first episode of The LAVA Spurt, Living a Voluntary Life Today.

Keep the LAVA flowing!

by 1supercoach

Great perspective on all the relevant issues of today! Rodger does a great job breaking down the issues and answering most of the questions I have about any given topic…. saving me loads of research time every week that I just don't have! I started donating this month because the value I have received is just too great not to! Looking forward to more from Rodger and the Pax Libertas team.

The Tuning Fork of Liberty

by Waviator

The LAVA Flow podcast by Rodger Paxton is a clarion call to wake up and start rocking the slave ship we are on. If his jimmies are being rustled, it is for good reason. He succinctly reports on travesties of Justice and organizes his brief podcasts to inform us on the State's Python-like squeeze on our liberty. Rodger reports on news stories that deserve more traction and citizen rage that the 4th Estate ignores while supplications to the State. His take on libertarian questions that ring true like the tuning fork of Liberty that he is. He fairly points out where others disagree, but brings us faithfully back to the Non-Aggression Principle. Most importantly, Rodger (and Jessica) Paxton walk the walk. Rise up!

Top Notch!

by yrrabsille

Straight forward libertarian news and commentary from a level-headed guy who really does his homework. There's no fluff in the news aspect of this show, and there's no compromise in the commentary/opinion aspect. Rodger has built a great foundation for his growing network of podcasts that have become a staple in the Anarchist news world. If you're not listening to The LAVA Flow yet, then what's wrong with you?

Thorough, Informative, A Good Use of Time

by Elisabethienne

These podcasts are so well researched it is unbelievable. Each topic or event is presented with background information that is cited in the show notes so a listener can easily access and perform their own research. Rodger presents is with a wrapup of some issue or event that we don't have the time to go out and research ourselves. He presents his own viewpoint which is truly libertartarian, and he states his opinions honestly, in an editorial style, rather than presenting his own opinion as news. This has jumped to my must-hear podcast and I'm grateful to Mr. Paxton for taking the time to create it.

Remarkable work

by Christian Edward Gruber

I tripped over the LAVA Flow podcast while poking around Podcast Republic, and then seeing a pointer from a Kinsella post. I subscribed but never got around to working through the episodes. The other day I did, starting with going back through the review of LP candidates, as I was curious what a voluntaryist/agorist would have to say about an electoral politics happening. I was impressed. I find Rodger's style a lovely mix of sincerity, thoughtfulness, humor, and sarcasm, with some great analysis. Since that, a few days ago, I've power-listened to the whole thing and contributed on Patreon. This is some good stuff, and I look forward to more content. His commitment to principle, even present where he struggles with questions of tactics in the movement, rings true and shows through, and I am happy to find this “ally in liberty”. Keep it up.

Current and Informative

by Subscriber hell inmate

The Anarcho-Capitalist/libertarian take on current events. Paxton's opinion and interpretation are always entertaining, often insightful and always well-researched. His perspective on what is happening this week on the viral videos and memes on the internet are worth the listen alone. He will find the story behind it and give his libertatrian perspective. He also will keep you up on as much as he can for a half hour every two weeks on the latest debacle in Washington. The occasional discussion of libertarians and the contreversies within the shades of the ideology are also very informative. Well worth your time!
