Voluntary Society

Shootings in Dallas, unrest in America, violence streamed live on social media … can we bounce back from the events of the past week? Chief, Kathy Dervin and Kevin Riordan try and sort these things out, along with determining how they affect the markets.

Marc Stevens, anarchist author, radio show host and consultant who has assisted in throwing out traffic tickets, drug possession charges and tax cases on 3 continents, joins the show to share insights on how logic and a refusal to accept political sacred cows can go a long way in achieving justice.

Finally, John Neal of PTI Securities & Futures closes the show with a forecast of the markets in front of today’s Jobs Number.
