Some of My favorite UnCommie Goods.
Below are links to items I endorse that pass the UnCommie Test! Meaning it’s made in America, and most likely a small business. These may be affiliate links (Amazon or otherwise), which support this podcast with each purchase. More importantly, it supports American businesses!
The AccuSharp. Knife Sharpener. Highly Rated by America’s test kitchen. I’ve given this as a gift at least a half dozen times.
I love it, and it’s easy and safe to use. Lasts forever.
Spiderchalk Liquid Chalk. When the gyms closed down, and all I had was a 50lb kettlebell, I needed chalk without the mess! Spiderchalk was my salvation, I love the stuff, and even interviewed the owner in Episode 21!
They even have block chalk and more for all you bad asses out there!
Indiebound Books. I love this business. It’s a great way to support your local, independent bookstore online! Skip the mega-retailer that dominates the world (you know who I’m talking about), order online at Indiebound, have it delivered to your home, or pick it up in store and meet the great staff of your local bookstore.
Orca Coolers. I was a bit miffed when I found out another major cooler brand named after a mythical snow creature wasn’t 100% made in the USA. So I found Orca Coolers, and they make an amazing product. And get this, their full name is Outdoor Recreation Corporation of America… get it? O.R.C.A. Brilliant. I love their stuff, and they make a variety of items for all your cooler and insulating needs, food and beverage-wise. Check em out!
I love these delicious, all natural and nutritious bars that provide for your energy & recovery needs.
You ever eat a protein or energy bar, and it’s a thick sludge-like material, with tons of ingredients you can’t pronounce, and you’re not sure if it’s something you should be putting into your body?
Well not with Wild Bar. That’s right, Wild Bar! You literally see each ingredient, it’s simple, yet with anything simple there’s usually a lot of work behind it. I know the creator and founder of Wild Bar, and how much energy and passion is behind this product!
Wild bars have three delicious flavors:
I love this thing, and use it every night. I’ve always been a light sleeper, and need to make my conditions as optimal to get a good night’s sleep, and that’s why i use the american made Sleep Master® Sleep Mask eliminates light and reduces sound, and I”ve been using it for years, way before I started this show, trying to make sure everything I buy is an UnCommie Good.
The Sleep Master® Sleep Mask is lightweight, made of a soft, cool satin fabric mask, that is comfortable and breathable.
Seriously, if you’re a delicate sleeper, you’re going to love the Sleep Master® Sleep Mask and it’s around 20 bucks.
A listener all the way from Australia messaged me on Instagram about Origin Maine. What an amazing company, Everything is US made. Clothes, bison leather boots, fitness equipment, cut to order jeans, and even Martial Arts uniforms. Check them out! I ordered the Blackout Joggers and can’t wait to get them.
I love Lodge Cast Iron Pans. They retain heat and give your steak an amazing sear. From their website “From their website:

A few years ago I was visiting my cousin in Sweden, and he had a Moccamaster by Technivorm. I went nuts because it was so cool looking, and I wanted to have it in my home.
These filter coffee makers are all handmade in The Netherlands, which means they pass the “UnCommie-Ometer”. They are made and assembled by hand and individually tested in a live situation. It is the personal touch that makes these products unique.
Mikko, A listener recommended this book to me and it is chock full of facts of the horrors of socialism, intermixed with fun as two economists visit socialist nightmares such as Venezuela and Cuba, and having a few beers on the way.
It is a great read that I recommend for anyone of any political persuasion.
