82: Off to College! (PART 1) with Sarah Nichols

In a new series for The Brian Nichols Show, I am being joined by my sister, Sarah Nichols, as she heads "Off to College"! As she's a recent high school graduate, I wanted to pick Sarah's brain to see where she stands on a variety of issues (and to get a better idea as to where the rest of her generation stands as well).


81: Should Mass Shooters Get the Death Penalty? with Hannah Cox from CCATDP

Should Mass Shooters Get the Death Penalty? Your first reaction is likely, "Well, yes. Duh". And if that was your reaction, no worries, it used to be my reaction, too. That is until I started to look at the death penalty differently, much in part thanks to today's guest- Hannah Cox, National Manager of Conservatives Concerned About the Death Penalty. Hannah first joined the show last year to discuss the mission and work over at CCATDP, which is a national network of conservative Republicans...


80: From Leftist to Libertarian with Steffi Cole

I dare say that most of us know folks within the libertarian movement who came from the more conservative side of things, heck, with yours truly being one of them. But those who ventured to libertarianism from the left are much fewer in our ranks, despite them sharing our many of our values. Today's guest is one of those unicorns who went from leftist to libertarian, and I wanted to have her on my show to discuss her conversion as she started going down the libertarian rabbit hole; the one...

Welcome back, folks! For those of you new listeners joining us, thanks for taking some time to listen to today’s episode of The Brian Nichols Show!

77: Dismantling the Two-Party System by Changing the Way We Vote with Aaron Hamlin from The Center for Election Science

"My vote just doesn't matter..." Have you heard this before? Or perhaps have you caught yourself saying that exact same phrase? Don't worry, you're not alone. As a mater of fact, I've said as much myself. With the "choose-one" voting system, many voters feel that their votes simply don't matter in today's electoral system. That's where today's guest, Aaron Hamlin, and the organization he co-founded, "The Center for Election Science", comes into play. See, Aaron and his team have been on a...

70: Government Stinks. See How "We Do Better" with Rick Rivkin

The government stinks. I know it. You know it. We all know it.

That's where "We Do Better" comes into play. We Do Better seeks to promote the freedom and well-being of all Americans by maximizing the quality and accessibility of public services and accountability in their provision.

64: Debunking Gun Control Myths with Jose Nino

Hey folks! First off, I need to apologize... This week's audio isn't up to the standards that you've come to expect from The Brian Nichols Show. For whatever reason, my computer decided to use the wrong mic setting while recording, which makes my commentary sound more tinny and distant than normal... but besides that, you're all in for a treat, as this week, I am joined by Jose Nino to discuss common gun control myths and to discuss how the US should approach the tragedy in Venezuela. Bio:...
