If you haven't heard, the fuckhead senator and former presidential candidate John McCain has died. You can probably tell we're real butthurt about the passing of this great American "hero". All joking and shit stirring aside, our thoughts are with the family, as well with the families of the 4,497 American soldiers who have died since the initial invasion of Iraq. Not to mention the hefty civilian toll as well as Afghanistan, Syria, ETC...
We begin by discussing McCain's life. We read from his Wikipedia entry and recount the major events that took place on his journey from his adolescence clear through to his death. You can follow along here.
We tie up the big dick segment by playing the trailer for the newest addition to the Pax Libertas family, "The Big L with Caryn Ann Harlos". You can get more info at http://biglpodcast.com/.
What the fuck is the internet!?
Adam and I argue about what we want to do with the new intro music. He likes to keep it simple with the live monologue and I want to stuff if full of stupid clips and sound bytes from the show, but he seems to think that would be hacky or some shit. I think Adam is really out of touch. If you'd like to get your voice heard leave us a voicemail at 256-607-3197.
We listen to a few interesting voicemails, 2 of them being in foreign languages. Let me be clear, we only speak god damn American at the Ancap Barber Shop so if the caller or someone that speaks Japanese or Italian could hook us up with a translation, that would be awesome sauce.
We've got big plans for a few miniseries that will be released alongside the regular Patreon episodes. We're working on a three part series reviewing the currently airing third season of "Attack on Titan" (Weeb shit) as well as planning on three episodes talking about the Bioshock (gamer shit) series. Sign up for our Patreon at the five dollar tier or higher and watch out for these.

We discuss the naming of the new Madison, AL baseball team "the trash pandas" and proceed to wrap it up by playing a few questionable responses to the new Eminem album, which is comprised mostly of "diss" tracks, I think. I'm not the expert here so you'll have to ask our resident "hip hop head" and cohost Adam. You can hit him up at email@example.com.
I fell like we're heading in a good direction, and that we really hit it out of the park on this one. We sure hope you enjoy it and if you'd like to shoot us a line you can do so at firstname.lastname@example.org, worms!
Hello Friends! In this episode, we discuss the Nike boycott, as well as recount the first forty-nine episodes of the Ancap Barber Shop! That's right, this is our fiftieth episode, and boy is it a good one! We'll hear from a few listeners, talk about the new Eminem album, listen to a few clips from past episodes and discuss the merits of the boycott against Nike for using Colin Kaepernick in their advertising. This episode begins NOW!
We're retiring the introduction song "Kill Myself" written and performed by... myself (Scott). We're upgrading the show's music for the coming episodes, if you need your fix of Pinecone Percy you can find it here.
We move on to thanking our network, patrons, and listeners. I'll reiterate here.
THANK YOU SOOOOO MUCH!!!!!!!!!
Seriously, we couldn't do this without you guys. I mean I literally don't know how to upload a podcast, or what an "RSS feed" is. So thanks again.

We had a few voicemails for this one. Somebody sent us a clip from the movie Billy Madison, looking back this could have been an insult to our intelligence. Are you friend or foe? Either way, we appreciate it!
The next voicemail is from the big (more recently not-so-big) man himself, Rodger Paxton! He congratulates us and wishes us another fifty to one hundred and fifty episodes. Thanks, Rodger!
The next one was a little bizarre. Adam and I thought it was a 1960's civil rights speech until we heard the announcer say something about Ric Flair. Make sure and let us know exactly what that was, lol. Our Final message this fortnight was from Brando, the other ancap barber. If you haven't heard it, we interviewed him back on episode twenty-six. Thanks, Brother!
If you'd like to leave us a voicemail you can do so at 256-607-3197. I'm in, give me a holler!
Apparently, the hip-hop artist Eminem AKA Marshall Mathers AKA Mom's Spaghetti Man just put out a new album and did so without warning or promotions. He uses the album to diss all the mumble rappers or something. This shit's a little outside my wheelhouse and Adam doesn't write the show notes so if you want to hear more outside of the podcast hit his ass up at email@example.com, then send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org so I can remind him to check his email.
In the coming weeks, we'll be revamping our Patreon campaign. I don't want to say too much until all the details are finalized but we will likely be halving all of our prices, and further reducing the price of several tiers. We'll let you know more in the next episode but if you've ever thought about supporting us, or just want to get more of that sweet, sweet Ancap Barber Shop content check it out at
What the fuck is the internet!?
We spend our internet segment listening to a few clips that I selected from the first forty-nine episodes.
The first clip is from our inaugural episode, "Anarchy In Alabama" where Adam and I channeled our inner impressionists and did a dramatic reading of the Donald Trump pussy grabbing comments. You can listen to our first episode here.
The second clip is from episode fifteen "Battle of Berkley and stoicism with Nick Hazelton". We discuss that "Moldylocks" girl getting punched in the face. You can listen to episode fifteen here.
The third clip is from a bonus episode we recorded live from Porcfest AKA the Porcupine Freedom Festival last year (2017). We talked about allegedly eating mushrooms the night before and allegedly losing our shit for a few hours because of it. You can catch that one here.
Our fourth and fifth clips were from episode forty-one "John Mcafee and Syria" The former clip being Adam's bigoted introduction monologue and the latter being us discussing John's unconventional sex life.
You can listen to episode forty one here.

We spend a little time discussing the Nike Boycott. The footwear and apparel tycoon has chosen to center one of their ads around Kaepernick, featuring a still portrait of his likeness, and text that reads "Believe in something even it means sacrificing everything".
The internet is flooded with memes. Is this a ploy for attention from the company? Will their support of Kaepernick inevitably be a detriment to their bottom line? Oh yeah Adam is sporting his Nike SB shoes and tee shirt for this pod.
We'd like to thank everybody once again. This episode was a big milestone for us, and we really enjoyed recording it for you guys. Until next time, worms!
And don't forget to give us mother fucking money at patreon.com/ancapbarbershop.
Hey boys and girls, welcome to the Ancap Barber Shop! We've got special guest Elijah Boyd on this one. He's the Vice chair of the Libertarian Party of Madison County as well as a candidate in the race for state house district ten here in Alabama. We also discuss what's going on in the state (as well as the country) of Georgia. Make sure you don't miss this one!
Ancap Barber Boi News
We start the show off listening to a few listener voicemails, My favorite is the one where the guy just says "Hannibal Burress" for whatever reason. Great stuff as always.
To whoever left the voicemail about Ric Flair, It was too fucking quiet try again.
Adam lets us in on some hillbilly assed advice ."One awe shit takes away all your attaboys". So yeah.
Elijah tells us a little about his campaign, and what it's like to run for public office. He says that he's not sure if he's doing it right and that the purpose of his campaign is to spread the message of liberty. You can find out about his campaign at electelijah.com
Elijah takes us through his platform. We discuss prison reform, cannabis legalization, unfair taxes, occupational licensing and civil asset forfeiture.
We also discuss his life as a foster and adoptive parent, as well as that whole Jacob Anders thing. If you're out of the loop he was the alleged "Rapey Politician" we covered in episode 47. Here are some links to more info on that little dealio:
Big Dick Ancap Shit
Adam ties it up talking about the state of Georgia removing the pledge of allegiance (I think just in Atlanta but I don't remember, Adam always forgets to send me the links... If you've made it this far I assume you're planning on listening to the podcast so fuck off lol) as well as the country of Georgia legalizing (I hope it's legalize and not decriminalize, once again it's Adam's fault so bitch at him) cannabis.
Alright I felt bad so I looked it up. The country of Georgia LEGALIZED cannabis. Don't expect me to do more work than I want to anymore.
If you haven't figured it out Adam originally thought that the STATE of Georgia had legalized POT. What a dipshit.
Let me remind you guys again that we livestream the episodes with cameras and shit for all levels of patronage, check it out at patreon.com/ancapbarbershop
We've been pumping out content like crazy for Patreon. Podcasts, live streams, video game shit. I'd suggest spending as much as you can so you get a bunch of goodies. Also, with Attack on Titan season 3 in full swing, we're getting ready to record our EXHAUSTIVE review of the season. I think we're going to review 4 episodes per.. episode. So a total of 3 episodes. Yeah, that should make the hentai nerds happy.
Welp, I really hope you guys have enjoyed this. I know it's been fun for me. Worms!
Oh yeah, make sure to sub our YouTube channel. We've been working on uploading the old episodes and we're gonna start putting the HD videos up shortly after the podcast drops. So yeah.
Hey everybody, In this episode we discuss whether or not Joe Rogan should continue his show, the sissy of Freemont street and creepy stories from the dark web. Oh yeah Darryl W. Perry calls in for a bizarre interview. Make sure you DO NOT miss this one.
Ancap Barber Boi News
We have a handful of juicy voice mails from our listeners. I guess I don't know if the last two were listeners since I don't know who they were.
Adam proceeds to crack the case on a bizarre interaction I had with a walmart employee. I think she was some type of grocery bag nazi or something.
Did you guys know that we live stream video of our show for patrons at ALL LEVELS? If you didn't, you goddamn should now. You can get the video stream as well as our Patreon exclusive episodes for as little as two bucks a month. Check it out at patreon.com/ancapbarbershop.
I had the pleasure to guest star in an episode of "Sounds Like Liberty" with Nick and Lizzy. They talk about music and musicians from a libertarian perspective. We talked about a whole bunch of shit and it was a fucking riot. In particular I got to break down my nine favorite albums, so if you're at all curious about my refined taste in music be sure to check it when it drops. You should check their website everyday until they put it out. If they take too long I fully endorse harassment/online bullying. I think they listen to the show but I'm pretty sure they don't read the show notes... just don't tell them I told you to do it. Actually just don't do it at all. Oh fuck the website is https://www.soundslikelibertypodcast.com/.
What the fuck is the Internet!?
We start our internet segment by breaking down an article that claims to compile stories from reddit users about their unusual experiences in the dark web. Our more technically oriented panelist seems to think a lot of it is bullshit because he knows how technology and the internet works. Honestly it kind of fell flat once we realized it was a bunch of HOO HAA but what are you gonna do? I'm surprised it wasn't overly political. They could have used the opportunity to paint the dark web as more of a den of pedos then it is, since they seemed to be making shit up. I'm sure someone will write in and explain how some of this shit could happen. I'll pass the info along to the other guys since I won't understand it anyway.
We're turning this into a clip show, and I think the segment about "The sissy of Freemont Street" displays the nuanced and poignant commentary that the hosts here at the Ancap Barber Shop are known for. In fact all of our peers in the podcasting industry envy us, yet at the same time respect us. Most libertarian podcasters look up to us, even though we have only been doing it for a few years. But the Sissy is in fact an elderly man that made a video seeking a room mate and lover. He says "I'm ready for you to fuck me up anyway you want to do it you white cunts!". You just need to listen to the show, or watch the video here.
Goddamn I just watched it again and he says "And put some weights on my itty bitty two inch dick" I'm fuckin dyin bois. You gotta check this shit out.
Mediafile reports "By giving legitimacy to these conspiracy theories amongst others, Rogan is encouraging the “fake news” movement and is essentially telling his audience not to trust anything that is generally accepted as true.
I don't know man, I would think questioning everything is good. Even if the dude was into some conspiracy shit, and made it part of his show. People don't have to listen to him, much less hold the same beliefs as him or his guests.
Big Dick Ancap Shit
Darryl W. Perry called in and it was really him and not a soundboard. We had a bizarre conversation and I had to eventually hang up on him and cut the show short. I wrote longer show notes to make up for it.
Hey everyone, in this episode we're talking about Jacob Anders, a local politician who is under fire for some leaked questionable posts in a secret incel group, as well as the Libertarian Party in Cuba. Me (Scott) and Dave are bringing the funk tonight. Hope you guys enjoy!
Ancap Barber Boi News
We had quite a few voicemails this episode, we heard from donors Brian and Bruce as well as some of the usual jokers.
Brian actually hosts a show on Pax Libertas, you can find it at https://resisttheempirepodcast.com/
You can also leave us a voicemail for the next episode at:
On the last episode we announced the winner of our Sopranos pun contest, but misgendered, as well as mispronounced the name of our winner. So, SORRY CEGES!
What the fuck is the Internet!?
In this episode's What the Fuck is the Internet segment we discuss Jacob Anders, who is currently running for Huntsville city council district #4. He's in hot water because of surfaced screenshots being passed around on social media of some of his past posts in an "incel" group on Facebook. The locals are fired up to make sure he doesn't win, While I prefer no political masters and choose not to validate the political system by participating, I can't blame them based on his comments.
He originally had the endorsement of the local Libertarian Party chapter, but has since been revoked.
You can check out his platform here as well.
We briefly discuss Cody Wilson of Defense Distributed's case against the Federal Government. You can find out more at https://reason.com/blog/2018/07/10/the-goverment-will-allow-cody-wilsons-de as well as buy an 80% finished firearm at https://www.ghostguns.com/.
Bick Dick Ancap Shit
We close out the show talking about libertarians in Cuba. Last year they officially launched the Cuban Libertarian Party after "authorities" arrested a few of their activists for distributing literature. You can read the article here, see their facebook or send them a donation at https://www.paypal.me/InstitutoMisesCuba.
Cuba's communist government is working towards recognizing some degree of private property rights, as well as the presumption of innocence in their judicial system. They claim to be opening up to private property as well as some form of free market because of their poor economy, which sounds like a concession to me, but we will see.
We hope you enjoyed this one, and don't forget to leave us a voicemail at 256-607-3197 or check out the perks on our Patreon at patreon.com/ancapbarbershop. Worms!
Boy do we have a good one lined up for you guys this time. In addition to our regular hosts and panelists we are joined by Antony Sammeroff of the Scottish Liberty Podcast and beyourselfandloveit.com. We discuss "The Psychology of Statism", environmentalism in regards to private property, Ezra Klein, Charles Murray, life in Scotland and an upcoming live stream Antony is hosting for the purpose of shaving his long, flowing mane.
Venezuela has created its own state-sanctioned cryptocurrency by order of President Maduro, and some dipstick state-rep from Alabama says teachers shouldn't be armed because they're mostly women, and women aren't comfortable carrying guns. Get all the details on this episode of The Ancap Barber Shop!
Hey everybody! In this episode, we are LIVE for the first time from the new and improved Martin Shkreli Studios! We discuss the arrest of Matthew Qualls, which occurred on February 22nd, 4 days after publicly criticizing Etowah County Sheriff Todd Entrekin and Hillary Clinton supporters spamming pro Bernie Sanders facebook groups with child pornography.
In this bonus episode Scott yaks with fellow ancap and crypto lover Jake Bryan.
BE WARNED, THERE ARE AUDIO ISSUES WITH THIS EPISODE!!!
Scott, having been a big bad podcaster for a little over a year now didn't think he needed to do a routine sound check
before recording this podcast, resulting in some electronic interference leaking into the final mix. The good folks at
PAX Libertas Productions would like to assure you that he is being dealt with accordingly...
At the end of the day we think that the information contained in this episode is worth a listen, and we we're able to fix it up a good bit, but you should do so at your own risk.
After praising Dash in episode 33 of the Ancap Barber Shop, some potential issues with the coin have been brought to our attention that are at the very least worth a mention. What's the final verdict on Dash? Let us know by sending us an email at email@example.com.
If you'd to talk to contact Jake, you can do so at jakebryan.me
Jake references a video regarding one of the people that were on the board that created Ripple (XRP).
The criticisms of Dash we referenced are presented below:
"(1) It was built on fraud; some guy named Evan cloned the Bitcoin code then premined it in his closet for two days while purposefully blocking other miners from submitting blocks. He claimed it was a mistake or a bug after he raked in a couple of million coins. When questioned, he mocks the investor asking the question and acts really weird never really explaining what happened; he implies that he deserved the premined coins because he put "his entire life in the computers in that closet" Video here: https://youtu.be/0EG2km7GAmM?t=2834
(2) He promised to give them back to the community and he never did; he lied. He now claims that by holding the coins, he is helping the community. Video here: https://youtu.be/0EG2km7GAmM?t=2834
(3) They lie in their marketing, claiming that it's a totally anonymous and private coin. This is an outright lie and it puts people on the black market in danger. A bunch of smart people from Princetown were able to achieve 100% success in tracing Dash wallets on the network. Dash is not anonymous or private and using it puts you in danger; Do not believe their marketing lies and never use Dash on the black market: https://arxiv.org/pdf/1709.02489.pdf
(4)They purposefully created master nodes to lock up a majority of coin supply and artificially increase price so that Evan can own a majority of them and continue to rake in fees from the dumbasses who use his network and making him even more rich by using his original pre-mined coins to extract even more funds from the network users. There are currently 4,766 master nodes on the network, putting 4,766,000 DASH out of circulation out of 7,774,607. Well over half of all DASH in existence is locked up creating artificial scarcity in order to inflate the price so Evan can profit even further.
(5) Evan has a master key that allows him to invalidate all transactions on the network for the previous 24 hours. More details here: https://www.reddit.com/…/just_a_reminder_that_dashs_strate…/
(6) Dash is openly being called a scam by some of the best and smartest people in the crypto world.
FluffyPony discussing Dash at length as a scam here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VrKU0Ymta-U
Charlie Lee: "Dash is trash."
Peter Todd: "Dash is snake oil."
Greg Maxwell: "Dash is not cryptographically secure at all."
Is that enough for you?
If you choose to participate in a coin built on fraud, that is your choice. Dash has made serious gains in price in the last year and if your goal is to turn profits, so be it. I personally cannot support this project for many reasons. Make your choices wisely."
We hope you enjoyed this episode, Worms!
In this episode, we are discussing the freedom action strategy "Vonu" with Shane Radliff of the Vonu Podcast. Vonu is the condition or quality of, as well as the action of achieving, an invulnerability to coercion. Etymologically, it is an awkward contraction of the phrase, VOluntary Not vUlnerable (hence, “vonu”). The idea is to become as invulnerable to coercion as HUMANELY possible, from both public coercers (the State) and private coercers (ACTUAL criminals). If you would like to hear more about Vonu you can go to http://vonupodcast.com/start-here/. Please don't forget to go and like the Ancap Barber Shop Facebook page!
