The Talk Show, Episode 8, featuring Nick Gillespie, Michael C. Moynihan, Sallie James, and Sam MacDonald


On December 19,'s Nick Gillespie and Michael C. Moynihan sat down with Australian-born Cato Institute trade policy analyst Sallie James and memoirist and former Reason magazine staffer Sam MacDonald, whose new book is The Urban Hermit, a slacker update of sorts of Ben Franklin's Autobiography.

Topics covered include the future of free trade under President Obama, what it's like to grow up in Australia, the future of libertarian politics, and whether lentils, which are a huge part of MacDonald's memoir, are inherently awful.
