NYGBC: Episode 100! W Cleon Skousen with X From Utah Outcasts

January 26, 2022
This Week!
We reach an incredible, but ultimately we recognize unimportant milestone of 100 Episodes!!! Thanks to all the listeners and patrons who have stuck with us through all the inane ramblings of conspiracists and zealots on our little quest.
 
This week we took a look at a man who might be the single most important figure in right wing thought until 2015, W. Cleon Skousen, the man who gave John Birch conspiracism a new twist for a new era, and inspired some of the most virulent morons of our time.
 
We were joined this week by X from the Utah Outcasts. You can find more of him and all his compatriots doing their good work over at https://www.youtube.com/c/UtahOutcastsOfficial as well as wherever you get podcasts.
 
Thanks as always for listening and enjoy the show!

This Week!
 
We finally get to the penultimate episode of our review of God and Man at Yale. the Superstitions of Academic Freedom, by William F. Buckley Jr. What have we learned in 170 pages? Not a god damn thing because this is just a 25 year old complaining about his college.

NYGBC: Lauren Boebert

NYGBC: Lauren Boebert

January 12, 2022
This Week!
 
We jump back into our dumbest member of congress rundown to take a look at someone who is best epitomized by the phrase "Platonic Runner Up" Lauren Opal Boebert, representative of Colorado's Third Congressional District. Her illustrious business career involves going from giving people food poisoning to dozens as a manager at McDonalds, to giving food poisoning to dozens of people as the owner of her very own restaurant and then congress. Because mediocrity is the new excellence.

Fire the Holiday Cannons! I need a dozen red Starbucks cup launchers on the Southeast ridge WHERE THE HELL ARE MY PLATOON BLACK SANTAS!! That's right, the war on Christmas is here, and you're liable to be a casualty of it too whether its from a Christmas play that doesn't mention Jesus or the nativity scene at the local courthouse sharing space with a Menorah. In our special holiday episode we take a look at what's really the reason for the season, getting grandma to buy whatever Fox News' advertisers are selling.

NYGBC: God and Man at Yale Chapter 3

December 15, 2021
This Week!
 
We read chapter 3 of William F Buckley's sad excuse for a polemic, "God and Man at Yale the Superstitions of Academic Freedom" and once again we find ourselves wishing we had the heart to follow the guide of Oedipus because at this point that outcome would be preferable.

NYGBC: The Von Mises Institute

NYGBC: The Von Mises Institute

December 8, 2021
This Week!
 
We take a look at a "think tank" dedicated to the memory of a fascist pseudo economist, and the libertarians (who else) that love him. That's right, this week we took a dive into the Von Mises Institute, as well as the personal bigotries of two of its founders, Murray Rothbard and Lew Rockwell. This episode has it all, Ron Paul! Racist Newsletters! Demanding the right to call dogmatic arguing while ignoring statistics and empirical measures economics!

December 1, 2021
This Week!
 
We get even deeper into the exhausting slog that is a recent graduate complaining about teachers he didn't like, which has all the makings of a Charlie Kirk except that Buckley actually graduated college. That's right, this week we finish chapter 2 of Willie Frank Buckley's "God and Man at Yale: The Superstitions of Academic Freedom" where Billy complains about intro to economics courses destroying humanity and ushering in the next Bolshevik revolution.
