Liberty activist and NH state senate candidate Carla Gericke joins Tatiana and Josh in the first part of the show to discuss coronavirus response in New Hampshire and nationwide, and why she believes the full lockdown was an unnecessary infringement of our rights. She also discusses her ongoing New Hampshire state senate campaign and her plans for this year’s PorcFest.
Then, GIVE Nation co-founder and blockchain strategist Alyze Sam joins Tatiana to talk about Virtual Blockchain Week, a live streaming event featuring some of the biggest names in crypto (and Tatiana’s performance at the after party), as well as her involvement with the charity organization GIVE Nation.
About the Guests:
Carla Gericke (JD, MFA) is an advocate of liberty specializing in localized voluntarism, self-determination, and how responsible human action can lead to peace and prosperity. She is president emeritus of the Free State Project, and lives in New Hampshire with thousands of fellow freedom fighters. In 2014, Carla won a landmark court case affirming the 1st Amendment right to film police encounters. She has appeared on WMUR, CNN, and Fox News, been featured in GQ and Playboy, been quoted in The Economist, and has discussed libertarianism on the BBC. She has visited more than 40 countries, hiked to the base camp of the 10th highest mountain in the world, lost a shoe in a taxi more than once, had her passport stolen in Goa, got kidnapped in Vietnam, and has noshed on more “mystery meat” street food than she cares to admit. Carla once spent an entire summer while working as in-house counsel at Logitech eating tuna fish sandwiches with Doug Engelbart (the Mother Of All Demos dude), she worked on Apple’s acquisition of Steve Job’s NeXT, and bought her first Bitcoin for $6. Carla co-hosts the Told You So podcast, and co-chairs Manch Talk TV. She serves on several non-profit boards, follows a Keto lifestyle (read about her transformation), practices yoga and shooting, and plays a mean game of Scrabble. Carla enjoys cooking, gardening, painting, reading, and watching documentary films. She has twice run for New Hampshire Senate, garnering 42% of the vote in 2018 against an 11-term incumbent, and believes in 2020, third time will be the charm! DONATE to her race TODAY! Carla's first book, The Ecstatic Pessimist, a collection of award-winning short stories, flashes, speeches, and essays is forthcoming next month.
