Free Cities Podcast's podcast|Liberty|Freedom|Ideas

Our mission statement at the Free Cities Podcast is to produce a weekly podcast with examples of people moving towards freedom and away from force. Most of our episodes will consist of interviews with people who are actively involved in this peaceful transition, or historical examples of people who have moved towards a freer society. Decentralization is a huge component of moving people towards more freedom so, some of our episodes will look at the growing trend of decentralization in business and how flatter structures can result in better feedback and better products. Peaceful voluntary co-operation between individuals has been responsible for the enormous growth in human prosperity, and we believe that markets can and do provide services better than governments can. I hope you enjoy the podcasts and articles on this site. The purpose of the content is to demonstrate that voluntary co-operation between individuals is the best solution to problems. Please feel free to provide feedback and provide suggestions for future guests on the show.

Some people claim we need the state to educate our children, we say no way! In this episode of the Free Cities Podcast I talk with my wife Kelly about our decision to home school our kids. We discuss resources that we use for our curriculum. Why homeschooling works better than the public option. Why its best for parents to  teach their children morality and how to think for themselves.

Mike and Shell DiBaggio are a Husband and Wife writer and illustrator team. Together they have created the Ascension Epoch a shared universe of adventure fiction. It is built on both original elements and public domain sources. 

Some of the elements of their fiction are about how a voluntary and decentralized world would operate. Sometimes its easier to accept an idea after we see it play out in a fictional world.

The two books we focus on are "House of Refuge" an award winning book the takes place around a Seastead and a private lifesaving service; and "Salmander Six" a private fire fighting service.

We discuss Seasteading, superheroes, private defense, copy rights, and public domain literature.
