Welch and Gillespie X Two Thursday Night: On Stossel and in NYC, Reading From The Declaration of Independents


Matt Welch and I are taping a special hour-long episode of Stossel that explores the themes and ideas in our new book The Declaration of Independents: How Libertarian Politics Can Fix What's Wrong With America (in stores now!). Called "the up-to-date statement of libertarianism" by Tyler Cowen, Declaration argues that we've been getting more free in many areas of our lives over the past 40 years and can bring the same innovation, dynamism, and pluralism to the parts of our lives still controlled by the dead hand and grim face of politics.

For the Stossel show, we'll be joined in studio by folks such as journalist Kurt Loder, radio personality Kennedy, and anthropologist and Chief Culture Officer author Grant McCracken to talk about how the Velvet Underground kickstarted the end of communism, why Pop Tarts are a secret key to life in the 21st century, and how we're all X-Men-style mutants these days (and not because of high doses of radiation!).

Stossel airs on Fox Business at 10pm ET on Thursday night. Check out more details here.

And if you're a Reason fan who lives in the New York City area, Matt and I will be doing a book event and signing copies at the Barnes & Noble on 82nd and Broadway. Details:
