I am starting in on Western Civilization to 1493 (available now at, and next summer I plan to begin on my course on the U.S. Constitution.

People have been asking if they can order my courses without having to join the whole Ron Paul program. Yes, and the site where you can do so is now open:

Here they are: How Tom Navigated Academia (a listener Q&A episode in which I spend some time talking about my graduate school experiences), All About Publishing (in which I provide a peek into the publishing world that will be of interest to authors and non-authors alike; this episode is also available on YouTube); and finally Tom Q&A! in which I answer some of the questions you guys have submitted to me (this episode, too, is available on YouTube).

If you haven't already, please subscribe to the Tom Woods Show on iTunes or Stitcher so you don't miss an episode. I release a new episode every weekday!
