Libertarian • Anarcho-capitalist

Voluntaryist • Agoritst


Secession is in the news again, and more than just Catalonia. Why is this good news? What's in the News with stories on a new libertarian country idea, police union outrage, Free Ross news, Equifax gets a government contract, Bill Weld shows his true colors, and body camera footage kept in the dark. Also, a Statists Gonna State segment on guns in America and a Herding Cats segment on two upcoming libertarian events.

I had no idea how far back the history of asset forfeiture goes. Find out all about it in this episode. Also, What's in the News with stories on private disaster relief efforts, cops getting off with murder, Motel 6 is a bootlicker, kindergartner suspended for imagination, and Maine nullifying federal food laws. I also discuss a new contest I'm running that you can win, and a new podcast project I've released for Pax Libertas Productions that you don't want to miss. 

Nurses can be heroes too, especially when they stand up to bad cops. What's in the News with stories on the MDMA as medicine, North Korea threats, bullying homeschool families, exposed security clearances, seizure of guns, and Comey on Clinton. And Yet Another Bad Cop segment with four stories of cops who go above and beyond to lie, cheat, steal, assault, and attempt murder.


Marc Clair from Lions of Liberty, Chris Spangle from We are Libertarians, and Johnny Adams from Johnny Rocket Launch Padjoined me to form the League of Liberty, a new monthly podcast exclusively for our supporters. Here is a little taste of that awesomeness!

Essential Libertarianism is the latest podcast project from Pax Libertas Productions. Learn all about it in this episode. This is episode fifty of The LAVA Spurt.

I've seen too many “libertarians” lately against price gouging, so let's talk about the economics and ethics of price gouging. This is episode forty-nine of The LAVA Spurt, The Economics of Price Gouging.

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?

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.

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.

The Lava Flow Podcast is quite possibly the best podcast that you aren't listening to!

by MasterBuilder357

Rodger Paxton, creator of The Lava Flow Podcast consistently delivers clear, concise Libertarian perspectives on topical current events, as they relate to freedom, liberty and economy. Paxton has a unique proclivity for delivering this perspective eloquently, with pristine clarity of thought while hammering home the importance of holding our government accountable for the various forms of mismanagement that have perpetuated our fall from greatness. The content that you will encounter on this delightfully informative podcast will possibly open your mind to think about issues critically, from angles you may have never considered before. If you are interested in broadening your understanding of Libertarian principles, I strongly urge you to add LAVA Flow to your library. I am confident that it will quickly become your Libertarian podcast of choice. Liberty up with LAVA Flow!
