Conversations with Lysander cover a wide range of topics having mostly to do with the IRS but might include other liberty topics, like the head of the snake (the Fed), NSA spying, encryption and Bitcoin.

IRS topics include: alternatives to U.S. Tax Court, administrative protests, appeals, objections and settlements, the best cases to take to tax court, which cases should never be taken to that forum, and those that fall in between.
