The Last Nighters - Episode 28 - The King’s Speech (45:13)

 1360x908-Kings_Speech.jpg

Robert and I get royale with cheese and talk about The King's Speech. This movie was suggested by a listener due to the plot turn about the service provider not being sufficiently credentialed, but he's also the only one getting results. His credentials are success.


England's Prince Albert (Colin Firth) must ascend the throne as King George VI, but he has a speech impediment. Knowing that the country needs her husband to be able to communicate effectively, Elizabeth (Helena Bonham Carter) hires Lionel Logue (Geoffrey Rush), an Australian actor and speech therapist, to help him overcome his stammer. An extraordinary friendship develops between the two men, as Logue uses unconventional means to teach the monarch how to speak with confidence.

During the episode, I made mention of the lecture by Ralph Raico on the "Miracle of Europe".  It is an amazing talk that helps balance out what you may have been taught in your history class about the European people's being a scourge on the planet.

In today's episode, Nicky P & Lizzie dissect Long Lap dance Song by T-pain for it's lessons in economics and voluntary Exchange. After getting a little sexy with Mr. Tallahassee and the ladies we get deep into I Heard This Happened where our dynamic duo each pick a new release for your earholes from the depths of Bandcamp.

From IHTH we dive headfirst into our interview with the vocalist of hardcore band Volume Zero out of Indiana, Jordan Taylor. A rare animal indeed, Jordan is a liberty advocate with not just military background but police background. If that's not enough he's in the belly of the beast enrolled in Law School. The sprawling conversation barely covers everything we could have but it was a lot of fun.
