  • ana033: Tim Battles Town Hall | Tom Woods Interviews Tim | Short Term Rental Ordinance

    12/03/2021 Duration: 02h28min

    We released episode ana027: 11 SPOOKY Fears about Short Term Rentals | ASSUAGED! on Halloween in 2019. Hours later, there was a multiple homicide at an Airbnb renter’s Halloween party in Orinda, CA. Tim wrote a blog post discussing this incident with a view towards understanding what went so wrong. In November 2019, Tom Woods interviewed Tim about the Orinda shooting and the broader topic of short term rentals. This was a more succinct presentation of our earlier episode, but they also covered some new ground. Since then, Tim has spent over a year arguing against new regulations on short term rentals in his home town in Maine. At the same time, he renovated his basement into an accessory dwelling unit (ADU) for short-term rental in a race against the clock. This episode starts with Tim’s interview on The Tom Woods Show, and then Tim reveals all the gory reality of small town politics. We close out with some profound lessons learned for libertarian principles and strategy. Use hashtag #ana033 to reference

    How does a quarantine affect public space? Why aren’t there enough ICU beds? Tim reflects on his experience designing hospitals to explain why the US healthcare infrastructure may be ill-equipped to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. Spoiler alert: It’s far from anything resembling a free market. This stress on the healthcare system has been used to justify unprecedented restrictions on the use of government-owned public space.

    18/05/2019 Duration: 01h27min

      Chuck Marohn's "Strong Towns" philosophy has been a huge influence on our thinking. has grown from a personal blog into one of the most influential urbanist movements in America, with thousands of members and millions of readers worldwide.   Strong Towns is common sense, yet iconoclastic: Cities and towns need to manage their finances responsibly, and develop their infrastructure accordingly.   While Chuck's prognoses may sound pessimistic, he believes that positive changes must happen at the level of the local community, rather than chasing easy money from Wall Street and Washington. This is an approach that we can get behind.   Chuck's forthcoming book "Strong Towns: A Bottom-Up Revolution to Rebuild American Prosperity" is available for pre-order, and will be released on October 1st, 2019.   Use hashtag #ana023 to reference this episode in a tweet, post, or comment   View full show notes and links at ----more----   Intro   Tim met Chu
