Johnny spent his early days earning his stripes as a helicopter pilot in the U.S. Army. Back stateside, Johnny immersed himself in the classic works of Murray Rothbard, Henry Hazlitt, and Ludwig von Mises. From there the AnCap known as “Johnny Rocket” was born. Speaking truth to power from your cell phone tower, Johnny digests the philosophy of liberty and brings them to the man on the street on a weekly basis. Johnny Rocket was also the front-man of the rockabilly group “Hot Roddin’ Romeos” and puts pencil to paper with the critically acclaimed comic series “The Liberty Force.” New York Times best-selling author and podcast host Tom Woods calls Johnny Rocket “one of the most entertaining figures in the liberty movement.”

With Johnny Rocket she was thrilled to have the opportunity to advance liberty through education, outreach, and entertainment.

Blast Off! With Johnny Rocket Episode #22: Butterballs Deep! (w/ Lions of Liberty)

BOJR-SHOW22.jpg

Show Summary:  Blast Off! with Johnny Rocket welcomes the coolest libertarian podcasters (Lions of Liberty) you know to toss back some adult beverages and bullshit about all sorts of liberty and non-liberty related topics, including the question “If our shows were ’80’s sitcoms, which would be Perfect Stranger and which would be Family Matters?”, the difference between flying and hovering, and….ok, maybe not so much about liberty but hey, it’s Thanksgiving! The Blast Off! crew then gets a taste of their own medicine, as Johnny and Raylene undergo the mind-numbing questions thrown at them in “The Cat’s Cradle!”

About The Guest(s):  The Lions of Liberty podcast has become one of the leading liberty-oriented political podcasts over the course of the last nearly FIVE years. The show has featured compelling interviews with some of the top names in the liberty movement such as Ron Paul, Tom Woods, Lew Rockwell, Jesse Ventura, Julie Borowski and many more, along with laid-back roundtable discussions about relevant liberty topics. In addition to the flagship "Lions of Liberty" podcast, listeners can now also hear "Electric LibertyLand" - a weekly shot of comedy, culture and liberty, hosted by Brian McWilliams - and continue to hear the weekly "Felony Friday", John Odermatt's look at the broken criminal justice system.

The Law Ep 13, County of Santa Clara v. Southern Pac. Railroad, The 14th Amendment, corporations, and reading cases correctly.

The-Law-Cover.jpg

This case is sometimes cited for the proposition that corporations are “persons” pursuant to the 14th Amendment. It does not say that. But how should corporations be treated? Aren’t they nothing more than a collection of individuals in a voluntary association?

Please Don’t Cancel Us With Johnny Rocket: Sounds Like Liberty - Episode 23

SLL23Banner.jpg

In today's episode Nicky P & Lizzie examine Cult Of Personality by Living Colour. Aside from being one of the greatest collection of musicians to ever perform, they also never shied away from making a statement. This particular song has always been a favorite. Where does it stand in my life after Ancap-ism?

This week in I Heard This Happened: some posthumous soul & one of the greatest band names i’ve ever seen..

Nicky’s album this week is Black Velvet by Charles Bradley. This dudes story is amazing enough but they did him right with this release. It captures the earnest soul of his previous releases but broadens the palate in great ways. My personal favorites are Luv Jones and Stay Away (a beautifully reimagined Nirvana cover.)

Lizzie brings us Schlock Value from Harmonica Lewinsky, lo-fi garage-punk surfsploitation contradiction that does more than enough justice to earn their name.

This week’s interview is with Johnny Rocket, host of the once upon a time Johnny Rockets Launchpad and current host of Blast Off! With Johnny Rocket and the founder of our home The Launchpad Media. He is the one and only Rock & Roll Libertarian not to be confused with me, The Libertarian Music Guy. What a great interview tho...

Johnny Recommends
Michael Franks - The Art of Tea
Joe Henderson - Double Rainbow: The Music of Carlos Jobim
Antonio Carlos Jobim - Wave
Brian Setzer - Rockabilly Riot
Steely Dan - Pretzel Logic

American Made - The Last Nighters - Episode 46

https://thelaunchpadmedia.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/11/LN46-American_Made.mp3

Thanks for sticking with us as we are fixin' to unpack a Turducken of an episode in preparation for the Thanksgiving week.

This week's show is about the Tom Cruise movie, American Made, where the questions of legality somehow apply differently if you’re doing it for the “good” guys.

This international escapade is based on the outrageous, true exploits of a hustler and pilot recruited to run one of the biggest covert operations in U.S. history. Based on an incredible true story of the CIA's biggest secret.

Barry Seal is an impetuous and bored pilot who gets leveraged into doing more and more compromising activities for the CIA, the Contras in Nicaragua, and the Medellín Cartel down in Colombia. Once they get their foot in the door, there’s no way out for our hero.

Join us next week as we’re gonna wreck it on “Wreck-it Ralph”!
