Reason TV's Kennedy sits down with Reason Editor in Chief Matt Welch to find out what's in the newest issue of the nation's only magazine of "Free Minds and Free Markets."

The January 2013 edition of Reason has just hit newsstands and features articles about avoiding the fiscal cliff, Veronique de Rugy on how (and why) to cut defense spending, and Ronald Bailey on how your cellphone is spying on you. There's also a brand-new Peter Bagge cartoon essay about Detroit, Jesse Walker's survey of apocalypticism in American culture, and Jacob Sullum's latest dispatch from the marijuana wars.

The cover is an original drawing by the great hot-rod-punk-rock-artist Chris Cooper – a.k.a. Coop. Read more about him here.

A year's subscription costs just $14.97 for 11 issues (the discount grows with multi-year subscriptions). Subscribers get the print magazine weeks before any of the material shows up online and the cost of subscribing helps underwrite Reason.com and Reason TV as well as the production of the mag itself.

If you're thinking of subscribing, you might want to consider making a tax-free donation to Reason Foundation, the 501(c)3 nonprofit that publishes the magazine and this website. We're hosting our annual webathon this week and a gift of $100 will nab you a subscription plus a classic black Reason T-shirt as well (did we mention all donations are tax deductible too?). The more you give, the more swag you'll get.

The magazine preview was produced by Joshua Swain and is about 3.30 minutes long.
