Reason Talkers Around Town: Nick Gillespie on "The Libertarian Dime"

|

Earlier this week, the guys behind The Libertarian Dime, Shane and Jonathan, caught up via phone with reason's Nick Gillespie for a wide-ranging 30-minute conversation on gay marriage, the constitution, bailouts, Bob Barr, and much more.

From the show's description:

Shane and Jonathan had the great pleasure of interviewing Nick Gillespie, the current editor of reason.com and reason.tv, and past editor of Reason Magazine. Nick was gracious enough to come on to the Libertarian Dime and discuss the election and other libertarian issues.  It was a great interview, where Nick brought a level of intellectualism to the Dime that hasn't been on previosly. The second half of the show was the long running series of trying to convert Josh Brady, currently a Republican, to a Libertarian, or at the minimum a libertarian. A great show overall that one shouldn't miss!

  1. …trying to convert Josh Brady, currently a Republican, to a Libertarian, or at the minimum a libertarian.

    Is there a Libertarian baptism? Is it full immersion? If so, in what?

  2. I am the “Shane” of the podcast. Converting him is somewhat of an inside joke. It’s not meant to be totally serious. 🙂

    And as one half of the podcast, I’m here for flames, complaints, and anything else. 🙂

  3. It was a great interview, where Nick brought a level of intellectualism to the Dime that hasn’t been on previosly.

    I wasn’t aware of “The Libertarian Dime”, and if Nick Gillespie can raise the intellectual bar, I’m not sure I want to.

  4. And flames you’ll get, Shane. I thought you guys had an interesting discussion.

    Lay off, Warren. You’re not raising any bars over here. I don’t think they claim to be a slick, professional beacon of intellect, just some guys doing a podcast. It’s nice to hear there are young people not gushing all over Obama.

  5. I wonder if Nick wears the leather jacket for phone interviews.

  6. Keep fighting the good fight, Shane buddy.

  7. I wonder if Nick wears the leather jacket for phone interviews.

    Yeah, but he kind of blew the effect when he tore out the parking lot on his Harley, side-saddle.

  8. Nick bring a level of intellectualism??? A subterranean level, maybe.

  9. Yes, everyone in an anonymous venue where it’s easy to make cheap shots thinks they’re the smartest person on earth. Give me a break.

  10. “It was a great interview, where Nick brought a level of intellectualism to the Dime that hasn’t been on previosly.”

    Apparently even the use of spellcheck could raise their level of intellectualism.
