Due to time constraints, and in an attempt to keep the show to a shorter length, there is no discussion of free market, environmental happenings at the end of the show! Bummed? I know! But there's hope, every Thursday, the Liberty Hippie and Nicky P. get together to spend a whole 45 minutes talking about just that on a show called Free Markets, Green Earth. Go check it out!
