This is one of my favorite podcasts. I was upset as I thought Simon was not doing them anymore. Luckily, I saw one finally come in. These podcasts are a great listen. Please don’t wait another 3 months!!

I've been a subscriber of Sovereign Man since 2009 and Simon Black's clear sighted, passionate and straight talking advice and info is such a breath of fresh air from the misinformation and ignorance of mainstream media. It amazes me how 'sheep-like' most people are and it pains me the vast majority of the population are sitting ducks. I've seen his popularity grow which is an excellent sign that at least some folks are waking up. You won't regret giving these a listen.

This is one for every entrepreneurs podcast library. Simon Black has an intense passion for history, the big picture, and pursuing an alternative way of doing things.

Outstanding delivery of solid content. Ex-military myself, and embittered by the myriad irresponsible acts of government, I find great actionable advice in Simon's podcast. Thank you, and keep it up! R M Davies CD, MBA

The Sovereign Man has been a weekly sermon on liberty and responsibility. The freedom movement has a few good voices, but Simon Black is our preacher. Amen. ;)

Simon makes a lot of thought-provoking commentary and provides actionable information on diversification outside the U.S. Solid stuff.
geostrophi from United States
Of all the free market oriented podcasts I have heard, I learn the most from this one, from Simon Black. He knows Austrian Economics, he knows History, he knows whats happening politically, and how to place it in context. The guy knows his stuff. Listening to this podcast is an education. Highly recommended.

The perspective Simon brings us in this podcast is invaluable. Everyone that cares about anyone needs to listen to what this man has to say.
Nikmaha from Canada
From Simon's voice you can tell his passion and you can tell he's knowledgful beyond state boundaries. Its a priviledge to receive his international perspectives on matters. Glad i found a light. Listener from Canada.

Listen and learn. Great perspective on the world and the economy and how to best navigate your way. Love the blog as well.

This type of valuable information you dont come accross in every day business podcasts. I like how author is able to explain the subject in easy to understand manner with relative historical references. It's kinda scary with what we are faced with as US citizens but at least we have people like Simon who are not afraid to speak up and help others.
LimeyOnTheMove from United Kingdom
Many of the messages the Sovereign Man delivers at first glance appear to be paranoid sensationalism but when you listen more carefully they are generally coming from people with credibility and based on research and data that is qualified. Most of us have a feeling deep down that teh financial system is deeply fractured and things are worse than everyone tells us, these podcasts might put a little meat on the bones of those gut feelings.
Peggy Murrah from United States
I have been a fan of Simon Black for a while. On finding out about the podcasts, I had to check them out myself. I was not disappointed. He always delivers good information which is dependable. He delivered the goods again.

FFS… please send China a fruit basket

I was in the gym earlier today trying to ward off the effects of trans-Pacific travel and 12 hours of time zone changes when the news flashed across the TV that the US government was issuing another round of tariffs against China.

This may be the dumbest move they could possibly make.

The dangerous, false logic of “Common Sense”

On the morning of May 18, 1927 in Bath Township, Michigan, a 55-year old municipal worker named Andrew Kehoe used a timed detonator to set off a bomb he had planted at the local school.

Kehoe was Treasurer of the School Board, so he had unfettered access to the school.

According to friends[...]

As I write this, bitcoin is trading at $8,600.

That's down more than 50% from the December highs of $20,000.

But is this selloff a natural correction, or something to be worried about?

That's one of the questions I ask my guest Tama Churchouse in today's podcast.

My colleague, Sean Goldsmith, just returned from a tour of the Caribbean.

In today’s podcast, I chatted with Silver Bullion’s founder Gregor Gregersen.

The two things that can pop the ICO bubble

In today’s podcast, I tackle the subject of Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs).
