Can you guys name your top three favorite, most interesting, etc. media links on the Mises website? I've only gone through a few, but I always end up giving up after trying to look through all of them for something interesting.

Too much good stuff here to boil down to a few favorites, but here are the first three that came to mind:

 

The two college course audio recordings of Rothbard that were posted this winter.

http://media.mises.org/mp3/rothbard/IntroMicro_1986/

 

Floy Lilley's oration of Rothbard's Introduction to Boetie's "Politics of Obedience"

YES, awesome topic.

 

Number 1)

"Mises in One Lesson" by Murray N. Rothbard.  I.e., THE BEST ONE HOUR INTRODUCTION TO AUSTRIAN ECONOMICS I HAVE EVER HEARD:

http://mises.org/media/961

This was a major converting experience for me.  This video is the top.  I still listen to it from time to time :U.  Really picks up in the last ten minutes (that always seems to be the case.

Number 2)

"Ticka, Ticka, You Need Good Timin'" by Walter Block.  GETS THE AWARD FOR BEST INTRODUCTION TO ABCT I HAVE HEARD.

http://mises.org/media/4080

Go Block!

Number 3)

"The Railroading of the American People" by Murray N. Rothbard.  TRAINS.  THIS IS HERE BECAUSE I LOVE TRAINS.

http://mises.org/media/4482

Especially interesting is the revision of history viewed through Rothbard's lens of, "Who benefits from this legislation really?  I bet they wanted this."  Which almost always leads to the opposite group wanting the legislation than what common history says :U.  There are many beautiful and climatic descriptions of this.  Including a small history of a rather heroic transcontinental railroad being awesome :D.

Number 4)

"Free Market Environmentalism Is Not an Oxymoron" by Walter Block.  BEST VIDEO ON ENVIRONMENTALISM I HAVE EVER SEEN!  ANOTHER AWARD FOR WALTER BLOCK.  HURRAH!

http://mises.org/media/1894

I think this has the talk about "Environmental Forensics," which is a very interesting idea.

not sure what you mean by media links - but the audio book section is fabulous. I listen daily on my mp3.. I like rothbards style most
