HWFO in Other Media
An index of podcast appearances, TV appearances, and other crap.
Herein, an index of stuff you’ve missed if you’re just now tuning in to Substack or you followed the Medium publication or Open Source Defense but nothing else. Personally, I think the best thing in the whole list is the “Guns Guide to Liberals” series of discussions we recorded in the Open Source Defense AirBNB at SHOT Show 2020, which they broke up into three episodes. But don’t sleep on the RECOIL TV interview. It’s solid. You can probably skip the Sam Tripoli one, it was weird. But first, the buttons begging for money.
Jim Rutt Show
Jan 27, 2021: Currents 024: BJ Campbell on the Woke Religion
April 11, 2023: Currents 090: BJ Campbell and Patrick Ryan on Egregores
HWFO via RECOIL TV hosts Michael Siegel, BU gun policy researcher and one of the smartest people in the room when it comes to gun policy, and a guy who started ideologically anti-gun and has shifted the more research he does. We even talk about that in the interview.
Rebel News with Ezra Levant
December 14, 2019: “The math behind why you should prepare for a violent revolution”
Full interview requires a subscription. Ezra is a deeply conservative alternate viewpoint Canadian media personality, sort of like Fox News for Canada, but this interview went off very well. The best parts were cut out of the clip linked.
Guns Guide to Liberals (with Open Source Defense and NAAGA)
Feb 3, 2020: 8.5 Racial Implications of Gun Control Round Table
Feb 17, 2020: 8.5 Part Three – Finding Meaning
As you cycle through these, play the “guess how many beers BJ’s had at this point in the segment” game. These are really good. Chuck Rossi from Open Source Defense talks about Facebook gun censorship from the inside, Douglass Jefferson talks about gun ownership from the black perspective, both now and historically, and I talk about HWFO crap. The hosts Jon and Sarah Hauptman are amazing communicators.
From the New World
May 30, 2022 with Cactus Chu. This is very long but we cover an amazing amount of ground and if you wanted a primer of (almost everything here) it covers quite a bit of it.
Tin Foil Hat with Sam Tripoli
Jul 22, 2019: #213 Guns with BJ Campbell
This podcast went over like a lead balloon with the Tin Foil Hat Podcast fans, which was pretty hilarious. Seems as if the entire channel got nuked by the Youtube “misinformation ZOMG” craze, but I’m leaving the link up in case it’s ever restored.

July 14, 2020: 102: Open Source Defense Contributor BJ Campbell
An hour about the media with the Fudds. I really enjoyed this one.
Jan 6, 2020: Jordan Hall and BJ Campbell – Game Ant vs Game B
March 23, 2022: Swarms, Egregores, and Autocults.
Everything Peter Limberg touches is great, but he plays to a narrow audience so his traffic is small. Soak these in. This last one has some heavy hitters on the line.
HWFO has spilled into several other journals on occasion as well.
Modeling the Socioeconomic Future with Dungeons and Dragons - A jaunt into the bell curves of fantasy roleplay character generation and what they might tell us about racism, the economy, and a future where intelligence ceases to matter in the same way that strength no longer matters.
The Surprisingly Solid Mathematical Case of the Tin Foil Hat Gun Prepper - a crosspost of the HWFO Medium article of the same name, but it’s outside the Medium paywall. One day it may find itself over here on Substack.
Guns in America, a conversation between BJ Campbell and Buster Benson. This conversation exchange was entered in the “Impossible Conversations” contest, and only missed nailing first place by a single point. Earned Buster and I around five hundred bucks. Check out this comment about it from Heather Heyeing, one of the judges:
