Robert Wenzel Takes the Fight to Radio

Economics 7 Comments

Having conquered the world of online Austro-libertarian financial commentary, Robert Wenzel is eyeing new territory:

I am happy to announce the launch of the “Robert Wenzel Show”.

I will be recording the shows on Saturday and they will be up on EPJ on Sunday at 7:00 AM EST. I hope to expand the show down the road to take listener calls and do live interviews, but for now the shows will be pre-recorded and available for listening any time after they are posted.

I plan to discuss hot economic topics of the day and also topics that may be of interest to groups beyond the general readership of EPJ.

My first show is titled: “The Many Problems with Herman Cain’s 9-9-9 Plan”

To give you a flavor of other shows I am planning, these will be worked in at some point:

“How to Make a Quick $50,000, Even if You Aren’t a Homeless, Drunken Bum”

“What to do with Your Life, Now that You have Graduated from the Useless Government Influenced Education System”

“How to Trade Markets as Though You Actually Know What You Can and Can’t Forecast”

In the comments, please list any other topics you would like to see me cover. And also include any questions you may have about the Herman Cain plan. I will address those during the show.

    Awesome. Next up, either the Tom Woods show, and/or the RPM Show xD

    RPM show would drive Comedy Central out of business, so no. Solely because I enjoy Jon Stewart bashing “Barbie’s President Friend Mitt”.

    • Tom says:

      Well, Jon is getting old you know.

      I think “The Daily Show with Bob Murphy” has a nice ring to it.

      • Matthew Murphy says:

        Perhaps Bob can guest host for Jon.

        Okay, back to the real world…

    It is very smart of him to start with a prerecorded show, because live radio is a really tough gig. I look forward to listening in.

    I agree, Tom definitely needs a show, he definitely has what it takes to be in the hot seat from what I have heard during his guest hosting spots. As for Bob Murphy, I always love his interviews, but I have never heard him actually host a show for a full hour or two. I don’t doubt that he could pull it off, I just haven’t heard him do it. It certainly isn’t as easy as it seems.

    • Matthew Murphy says:

      Sometimes I think Tom should have a tv show. If I were rich, I’d set that up for him. Radio will be fine, though. I expect it will happen sooner rather than later, I know he is open to the idea.

    I guess Wenzel took a look at Schiff’s operation and said “I can do that, how hard can it be?”.
