Activist #MMT - podcast

Jun 14, 2020

Welcome to episode 32 of Activist #MMT. Today is part three of a special three-part episode with Joe Firestone and Graham Elwood. In this final part, you will hear the full audio from my latest appearance on progressive video journalist and stand up comedian, Graham Elwood's YouTube show, where I apply the lessons that Joe assisted me with in parts one and two. Specifically, Graham and I discuss the truth about the Federal Reserve and its two major roles in creating money for the US federal government.

A link to the full video, plus transcript, resource links, and the full slide deck, can be found in the show notes. A full introduction to this three-part episode can be found before part one.

We shouldn't have to beg,
but we do have to beg.
So it's not *that* we beg,
but *who* we beg.

I am choosing to beg you, my listeners, to financially support this show.

  • $1 patrons get exclusive access to episodes (generally) four days before they are released to the public, and exclusive patron only content, updates, and opportunities.
  • $5 patrons get much earlier access to episodes – sometimes weeks, or even months in advance.

To be clear, all episodes of Activist #MMT are free for all, forever. Patrons only get the opportunity to hear them before the public.

Take a listen. If you like what you hear, thank you for considering becoming a patron of Activist #MMT (here:
