We go back to the Bill Murray well....again. It's Groundhog Day on the Actual Anarchy Podcast. A movie that despite being 25 years old now, holds up very well.

Bill Murray is at his wry, wisecracking best in this riotous romantic comedy about a weatherman caught in a personal time warp on the worst day of his life. Teamed with a relentlessly cheerful producer (Andie MacDowell) and a smart-aleck cameraman (Chris Elliott), TV weatherman Phil Connors (Bill Murray) is sent to Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, to cover the annual Groundhog Day festivities. After a surprise blizzard traps him in small-town hell, things get even worse; Phil wakes the next morning to find it’s GROUNDHOG DAY all over again… and again… and again.

Robert and I analyze popular movies from a Rothbardian/AnarchoCapitalist perspective.

We use movies as a starting point for people who may not be familiar with this way of thinking.   Discussion of the plot and decisions that characters make in relation to morality and violations of the non-aggression principle are our bread and butter.

We also will highlight and discuss any themes or lessons from Austrian Economics that we can glean from the film.

The point is to show what anarchy actually is with instances that are presented in film.

We publish at least once per week; and occasionally will do specials surrounding holidays or events (elections/olympics) and have guests.

We invite a returning guest, Liam Cardenas, to discuss the Ghost in the Shell. We primarily focus on the newer ScarJo version, but also discuss the original anime.

Major (Scarlett Johansson) is the first of her kind: a human mind inside an artificial body. Discovering her creators lied about her past life to control her, Major will stop at nothing to unravel the mystery of her true identity and exact revenge.

We get into a lively conversation that runs a bit longer than we intend for the new format, but we think it is well worth it.

We discuss the 2009 Gerard Butler vehicle, GAMER, about live-action video-gaming of real live players, both in a simulated world where anything goes; and a Running Man/Gladiator-style fight for freedom from the dystopian prison system.

Though not a great movie, Robert and I find plenty to discuss in this one. Worth seeing if you want to dig into some of the deeper questions out of a movie that tries really, really hard to be flash in the pan.

We hang on to the last vestiges of my youth as I turn 40 and talk about a children's movie with my friend since childhood, and co-host, Robert. WALL-E is a charming story of a lonely robot who gains sentience and becomes lonely; but there's also some ridiculous economic fallacies and a few strong propagandistic messages being pushed. We hope you enjoy this one!

Robert and I start to implement a few optimizations to the format of the show as we discuss Jordan Peele's "Get Out" which is an excellent movie that uses perceptions related to race to mask the narrative of the story. We both really enjoyed this one and appreciate you bearing with us as we implement updates to the show.

We travel to a galaxy far, far way with the Professional A$$hole to talk about episode VIII of the latest Star Wars trilogy of trilogies, "the Last Jedi". The Star Wars saga continues as the heroes of The Force Awakens join galactic legends in an epic adventure unlocking mysteries of the Force and shocking revelations of the past.

We get into some deep nerdery on this one, and of course: spoilers all the time.

We're going to own Christmas with Mike C. as we talk about the late-80's Bill Murray Christmas classic, "The Night the Reindeer Died". Oh wait....no, it's, "Scrooged"!

Murray Cajun Christmas!

Mike was our guest for our Halloween special on the Night of the Living Dead, and he may have just usurped another holiday!

Father loves Beaver. Yule love it!

We discuss yet another Christmas classic from the 80's, Trading Places, starring Eddie Murphy and Dan Aykroyd in a modern-day (progressive) interpretation of the Prince and the Pauper.

We are joined by Trey Weaver of the Subversion Webcast (the newest member of the Libertarian Union, and all around good guy) to discuss this nature vs. nurture, social engineering, comedy that has perhaps even more relevance today than it did in 1983.

Kyle from Foreign Policy Focus joins us to talk about the Brad Pitt movie, War Machine which is a satire on the quagmire of US foreign policy in Afghanistan. The story follows a charismatic general who in a policy of "change guys" seems to think he and his team will be the solution to winning the hearts and minds of the population, and thus the war itself. We were very happy to have Kyle join us to bring a level of expertise that would otherwise be missing from an analysis of a film such as this.

take it with you


Iphone_trans Listening to podcasts on your mobile devices is extremely convenient -- and it's what makes the podcasting medium so powerful.

You can take your favorite shows and mixes with you anywhere, but to do so requires some quick and simple steps.

Let's walk you through that process together.
step 1:


Click the "Subscribe With iTunes" link in the page's sidebar:

Subscribe_with_itunes

This will require that you have the iTunes software on your computer.

(You can download iTunes here.)
step 2:
Itunes_ss

Now that you've subscribed to the podcast on iTunes, the feed will display in your "Podcasts" section on the left navigation bar.

Click there and you'll see the show displayed in the iTunes browser.

You can "get all" to download all available episodes or just individual episodes.
step 3:


Plug your mobile device (iPhone, iPad, iPod) into your computer with the Dock Connector cable, and click the device in iTunes's left navigation bar.

Itunes_ss2

Once you have your device highlighted, click "Podcasts" in the top navigation bar and sync the podcasts you want on your device. Click "apply" and the episodes you have downloaded on your iTunes software will sync with your device.
that's it!

The beauty of this process is that now, every new episode of your subscribed podcasts will automatically sync to your device every time you plug it in and open iTunes. You can now take your favorite shows with you everywhere you go.

Enjoy!
done!
