On this episode, Scott and Adam talk about Bipcoin and Trump's Twitter account, how to find a good barber, and Gustavo Diaz. What the hell is Bipcoin and how does it relate to Bitcoin? Bipcoin was created by Michael W. Deen from the Freedom Feens radio program. How to pick a barber
Gustavo Diaz is Venezuela's arch nemesis, and he's nothing more than a guy who works at Home Depot in Alabama and runs a website. Flag burning laws are laws against freedom of speech. Hillary Clinton co-sponsored such a bill in 2005. President-elect Donald Trump and his Twitter are at it again. And, a question from a listener on how dog fighting would be handled in Ancapistan.

Scott and Adam welcome Nick from the Anarcho-Yakitalism podcast to discuss philosophy, from nihilism to objectivism. Nick Hazelton, the Anarcho-Yakitalist, is our guest in the studio this week to give his commentary on the topics we discuss. You can check out the Anarcho-Yakitalism Podcast at http://an-yak.com. Scott, the Ancap Barber himself, is afraid that he's an alcoholic, so he's stopped drinking cold turkey. It's been a week so far without a drink. Scott reads an article that he wrote on nihilism. One of our listeners, Robb Goodell, disagrees with nihilism, as does Adam. We discuss the issues with the philosophy. Is nihilism compatible with the Non-Aggression Principle (NAP)? Does nihilism come from our evolution as humans? We also discuss the differences in nihilism and Objectivism, and where Ayn Rand was wrong in her philosophy. Nick considers himself an ego utilitarianist. Nick makes the case that all of these philosophies are compatible with libertarianism.
