Ep. 317 - What Libertarianism Gets Wrong, with Jon Gabriel
Today, Orthodox Christian and journalist Jon Gabriel is with us. With the recent disaster of the new Libertarian Party presidential candidate causing many to leave the party, Jon and I discuss the philosophy of libertarianism and relate it to not only societal reality but the Orthodox Christian worldview. What good does it offer? Are parts of it irreconcilable with Christianity? Jon and I are both ex-libertarians and now Orthodox Christians. We discuss our journeys and where we see libertarianism and politics broadly now as Orthodox Christians.

Ep. 316 - The Great Divorce From History, with The Prudentialist
This week, we are once again joined by The Prudentialist here on Counterflow. He is an Orthodox Christian, writer, YouTuber, and fisherman. We are talking about something that he has coined, "the great divorce from history". From our guest: A divorce from history, a consequence of the orgiastic high that has come from Liberalism's alleged victories from the Cold War and the Second World War has left many smugly championing the cultural and economic victories while quietly ignoring the visceral transformations of their homes. To say that the past was evil, or that each step leftward was a step towards some concept of fully automated luxury gay space communism, then we are witnessing the continued suicide of the West in real time, just as Burnham remarked sixty years ago. We get into how this has happened and where we might be headed.

Ep. 315 - An Explanation of the Orthodox Faith, with Clark Carlton, Pt. 2
This is Part 2 of my conversation with Clark Carlton using his book "The Faith" as a guide for our discussion on the many nuances and aspects of the Orthodox Christian Faith. There are a ton of misconceptions and misunderstandings about Christianity in general but even more so with Orthodox Christianity. I want these two episodes to be almost like a catechetical guide into Orthodoxy. We get into apostolic succession, spiritual depth, repentance, pride, humility, Catholicism, Protestantism, and so much more.

Ep. 313 - Conservatives Should Reject Ideology, with Auron Macintyre
Auron MacIntyre is back with us this week to discuss the beautiful losers we call conservatives. The left cares about power and control, but the right has tried to put principle and ideology ahead of actually gaining and using power. This has put conservatives on the losing side of politics for more than a century. Now, leftism is the default setting for society, all of the country's institutions, corporations, and power structures. It's time for conservatives to stop letting their ideology get in the way of gaining power and defeating the left. Auron lays it all out in this excellent discussion.   For more from Auron, go here: https://youtube.com/@auronmacintyre?si=YLHbMEL_oBg0eCGT  To order his NEW book, go here: https://a.co/d/iyVJtY4 Visit my website: https://www.counterflowpodcast.com Donate to the show here: https://www.patreon.com/counterflow Audio Production by Podsworth Media: https://www.podsworth.com Leave us a review and rating on iTunes!

Ep. 311 - Red States Are Lurching Toward Antichrist, with Nichols from Orthodox Reflections
Nicholas from Orthodox Reflections returns to the show this week. We are discussing bad theology that is infecting many "red" states in the US. Several of these states are pushing laws that outlaw any speech deemed to be antisemitic. There's a rancher in Texas sending red heifers to Israel, which is a step to engineer the apocalypse, in his mind. Why is this happening? Are Jews the "chosen people"? Why is this a thing people say? There is a lot of bad theology involved with these things, and bad theology can lead to very bad actions. We get into all of this and more.

Ep. 310 - Multipolarity and the West, with Ben Dixon
My guest this week is Ben Dixon, author of the "Where the Wasteland Ends" Substack (https://substack.com/profile/160066243-ben-dixon). We are breaking down the rise of larger world superpowers as the US and the West are having to respect these powers. The West was able to run roughshod through much of the last 50 years. With the rise of Russia, China, India, and Brazil, this is no longer the case. What will the ramifications of this be? What happens with the dollar on the world stage? We discuss these items and more.

Ep. 309: Atheism and the Problem of Knowledge, Part 1, with Adam Patrick
My guest this week is host of the Age of Information podcast and friend of the show, Adam Patrick. Adam and I discuss the circular faith that is atheism. Many vocal atheists choose to dunk on low-hanging fruit, and when challenged to present why and how they arrived at their worldview, can't articulate it. Atheism, as well as any worldview, has to rely on faith at some level. Adam breaks down the epistemology of atheism, Orthodox Christianity, and various other worldviews.

Ep. 308: Diary of a Psychosis, with Tom Woods
My guest this week is one of the best authors and podcasters in our circles. He is the great Tom Woods. Tom is the author of thirteen books, and his latest one is a devastating death blow to the COVID cultists that have plagued our entire existence since 2020. From the "experts" that we were told to trust, to the media, to even our own friends and family members, at times, SO many people were just plain evil and wrong. What Tom did was keep a daily newsletter that documented many of the lies and inconsistent so-called "science" that we were yelled at to trust. From Tom's famous charts where you couldn't possibly tell which county did what regarding lockdowns and masks, to the many testimonies from those whose lives were destroyed because of the tyranny, Tom has a book full of receipts, and we are pulling them in this episode. What the evil people perpetuated during these years must never go unpunished nor unforgotten. In this episode, Tom and I discuss much of it.

Ep. 307: The New Puritans, the New Witches, with Father Zechariah Lynch
Today, Fr. Zechariah Lynch returns to the show to discuss some themes in one of his recent blog posts entitled, "We Found Witches! The Inquisition of Control over Human Freedom" over at his Inkless Pen blog. America was founded by Puritans. That Puritan spirit has remained a guiding spirit of American culture and society even today. In the early years, many Christian Puritans were looking for witches to burn at the stake. This is still happening today. What is different in modern times is, while we have lost the spirit of Christianity, broadly speaking, Puritanism is still there, only now fueled by a secular religion. If you don't offer up the pinch of incense to many of these types, YOU will become the witch that they want to burn at the stake.

Ep. 306: The Controlled Demolition of Civilization, with Jeff Deist
Many of you know Jeff Deist as the former president of the Mises Institute. Jeff and I discuss the things that have led to the destruction of our culture and civilization. Jeff brings an economic perspective to this discussion. The Federal Reserve has incentivized a high time preference society. A society with a high time preference is a tribal society rather than a civil society. Why did the boomer generation allow this? What effects has this had on millennials and home ownership? Has it allowed the spirit of nihilism to flourish? Can it be fixed through political means? We discuss all of this and more.

Ep. 305: Why I'm Not a Libertarian, with C.Jay Engel
My guest this week has been in and around conservative and libertarian circles for many years. C.Jay Engel used to identify as a libertarian, and in this episode, he discusses his political journey and transformation. Why would this matter? Well, because it's a similar transformation to not only my own but also many of my listeners. This show is absolutely not an excuse to feel pride about ourselves nor malice toward any folks who still consider themselves libertarian. It is, however, to give an honest and intelligent dialogue on politics, power, democracy, rights, Christianity, economics, and more.

Ep. 304: Explaining Great Lent, with Father John Whiteford
The time of Great Lent is upon us. There are many misconceptions as well as questions surrounding it. My guest, Father John Whiteford, is Archpriest at St. Jonah Orthodox Church and the author of Sola Scriptura: In Vanity of Their Minds. He is here to field all of my questions regarding Great Lent and provide thorough and accurate answers. Why do we fast? What do we "give up" during Lent? Should we be adding more things rather than just subtracting things during Lent? What is Holy Week? Why is Lent 40 days? We get into all of this and more. Great Lent is the most important time of the year for Christians. Find out why in this episode of Counterflow.

My guest this week runs the site AmericanOrthodoxChristian.com where she writes on spiritual warfare, geopolitics, and other topics, as viewed through an orthodox lens. In this episode, we are discussing how spiritual warfare is manifesting itself through the Russian and Ukrainian conflict, the USA and NATO faction, as well as Israel and Palestine.

Ep. 301: We No Longer Have a Civilization
My guest this week is Jason Mironchuk, the host of the wonderful 2 Bit Podcast. He has been discussing some very intriguing theories on his show recently, and I wanted him to come here and discuss them with me. He postulates that we are no longer living in a civilization. We have returned to the tribal mode that many of us pretend we don't even understand. The spirit of the devouring mother is, in part, what lead us here. This was a function of liberalism, and now we are facing the consequence: the spirit of the vengeful son. What in the heck does all of this mean? What does this look like? What is to come? We get into all of this and more.

This week, friend of the show and all around badass Charles Haywood is back on the show. Charles is the Maximum Leader over at the WorthyHouse.com and the founder of the applied political philosophy of Foundationalism. He is a member of Generation X. His views are right-wing with a future-oriented, post-liberal bent. He does not belong to any existing political party.

Ep. 299: Texas vs. the Regime, with Jim Jatras and Clark Carlton
My home state of Texas and our governor have been making headlines as we pushback against the Federal Government and their attempts to open our borders to a mass invasion. My guests this week are both well versed in law, constitutional issues, American politics, and history. They are also both Orthodox Christians. In this episode, we detail what exactly is happening in Texas, what this fight represents, broadly speaking, as well as the specifics here in Texas. Is this a step towards Texas secession? What happens if the Federal Government pushes back and things heat up? Is TEXIT a legitimate answer? How weak has the federal regime become?

Ep. 298: The Truth in Hierarchy, with J Burden
This week, a bright young Gen Z man on the political right joins me. He goes by the name J Burden, and his Substack and YouTube channel are both superb. There's a lot of complaining about younger people by Gen X-ers like myself. This will give you some optimism. Whereas quality seems to have eluded much of the millennial generation, there may be hope for Gen Z. In this discussion, we get into the change in the social and political tide we are witnessing. The regime is starting to crumble beneath the weight of its propaganda, bloat, and very real capability crisis. There's a counter-elite rising up, and we discuss what that looks like. We also get into the parallels with boomers and millennials and contrast those with the Gen X and Gen Z parallels.

Ep. 297: Symbolism, the Occult, and Orthodoxy, with Isaac Weishaupt
This week, Isaac Weishaupt joins us to discuss all things conspiracy, occult, and Orthodoxy. From Isaac's bio: "Hello, my name is Isaac Weishaupt and I'm the founder of IlluminatiWatcher.com. I've been researching my entire life as an ongoing mission to determine if this reality is the truth or a cunning holographic deception. I don't fully subscribe to any conspiracy theories, but I do find some intriguing if they resonate with any logic (also if they don't; who am I kidding, some of them are just clever). I live in America and feel that a lot of people are more concerned with being entertained than being informed or educated. Our media reflects that."

My guest this week is Hank Hanegraaff, widely known as the Bible Answer Man.

Ep. 292: Myths and Truths About Christmas, with Father John Peck
Today, Father John Peck returns to the show. Fr. John contributed  a number of articles for the Orthodox Study Bible and commentary on the Old Testament books of Hosea, Song of Songs, and III Maccabees (perhaps the first Orthodox commentary for this book in existence). He founded Journey To Orthodoxy for helping those inquiring into and seeking contacts within the Orthodox Church and assisting heterodox pastors in their transition to Orthodoxy. He also launched Good Guys Wear Black, a website designed to help men who are discerning a vocation in the Orthodox Church. Fr. John teaches a class on the myths and truths around Christmas. Today, we dive into many of these. With the rise of social media, there's been a ton of bad theology, inaccurate history, pop culture Pagan takes, and just way too much misinformation about Christmas. Was it Pagan? Why December 25th? Can we know when Christ was born? We get into all of this and more. Plus: What might 2024 bring us? More insanity and lies from the regime. We get into that as well! Fr.

Ep. 291: Ancient Beauty Amidst Ugly Modernism, with Andrew Gould
This week, a man with a true eye for beauty in art and architecture joins me. Andrew Gould is an artisan and designer specializing in traditional buildings and liturgical art. Andrew has designed dozens of new buildings, renovations, and custom liturgical furnishings. His practice is based in Charleston, South Carolina, and his residential and commercial work is focused within the Charleston Historic District. When designing churches and liturgical art, Andrew works in the Eastern Orthodox traditions (Byzantine and Russian), and his work can be found throughout North America and beyond. We discuss the awful state of ugly modern architecture and how it relates to our souls. When did we lose beauty and love in regards to art and architecture? Do some architects purposely make things evil and ugly? Are beautiful old style buildings too expensive to build these days? Andrew also discusses the importance of making American Orthodox Churches not only beautiful but respectful to and of the local culture. Should we put a strictly Russian-looking Church in the heart of a southern state like South Carolina? We get into all of this and more.

Ep. 290: Old World Thinking in a New World Culture, with John Heers
My guest this week is John Heers. John is head of the First Things Foundation. First Things Foundation was conceived as a way to remind wealthy westerners of what gives meaning to life and as a mechanism for serving the poorest among us. As a couple of men working in the aid field, we saw how do-gooders sometimes do profound damage to struggling communities. That damage isn't always physical; things get built when the cash shows up. The damage is spiritual, resulting in local people and local economies becoming dependent on outsiders. Or worse, these communities are violently transformed into what outsiders deem to be "good". We get into the spirit of what John calls "old world thinking" and the Orthodox way to offer philanthropy and aid. At the end, join me in the quiz that I take! Am I more of a new world enlightenment thinker, or do I trend towards the OLD WORLD?

She's also quite articulate and thoughtful as she talks about the red-pilled man-o-sphere and feminism, which are really the same energy, just directed in different ways. Is the ultimate end of the red-pilled men trend to make more homosexual men? What gurus do modern females fall for? What gurus do modern men fall for? We get into all of this and more.

Ep. 288: Beyond the Age of Nihilism, with Abbot Tryphon
My guest this week is Abbot Tryphon of the Monastery of the All-Merciful Saviour. Abbot Tryphon has a very colorful and winding history, and it ultimately led him to the monastic life. In this conversation, he details his days in the Socialist Workers Party, his hippie days, his time as a psychologist, and then his calling to follow Christ.
