On today's episode, Marc moderates a conversation between former Libertarian Party VP candidate Judd Weiss - John McAfee's VP Pick - and Charles Peralo, former 2016 candidate for LP chairmanship and co-founder of BeingLibertarian.com. This show is a follow-up to my interview with Judd Weiss in episode 290, and the two libertarian activists go back and forth about the veracity of Judd's accusations of shenanigans and tomfoolery on behalf of the Johnson campaign - including claims that the Johnson campaign stacked the convention with phony delegates, paid for hotels and flights in exchange for votes, seemingly large payment to campaign manager Ron Nielson, and more!

This is a lively conversation you're not going to want to miss!

Today on Felony Friday host John Odermatt is joined by Officer Dominick Izzo. Officer Izzo is a 16 year veteran police officer. You've probably seen his videos that he often shoots in his car, pop up in your Facebook feed. During his time as a police officer Officer Izzo received numerous honors and awards while serving in his community and he says on his website that it's his goal to bridge the gap between the police and the public through education, empowerment and respect.

In 2015 he started publishing videos where he began to expose police corruption. Officer Izzo spoke against the War on Drugs and revealed shady dealings behind the scenes in the Round Lake Police Department where he was employed. He vocally opposed a system that he believed was using officers to punish the very people they were hired to serve. Late last year, Officer Izzo called for his Police Chief's resignation. Ultimately, this resulted in Dominick Izzo being terminated from his position at the Round Lake Police Department.

During the interview Officer Izzo shares what led him to pursuing a career in law enforcement. Izzo discussed the events that led him to speak out against corruption in his department. Finally, Dominick explains the point system his Police Chief used to manipulate the police officers in his department to pursue charges for victimless crimes and other petty revenue generating offenses.

  • Answer some "Letters of Liberty" from fans of the show, touching on topics such as - Which states are the least and most libertarian? How do we feel about governments contracting with unions? And more!
