Declaration of Independents

Set Tivos to Stun! C-SPAN's Brian Lamb Interviews Nick Gillespie on Sunday, July 10!


On Sunday, July 10, C-SPAN will run an interview of me by the great Brian Lamb about my new book with Matt Welch, The Declaration of Independents: How Libertarian Politics Can Fix What's Wrong With America; the ins and outs of; my abiding dislike for politics and most politicians; and why I think my kids will inherit a better world than the one I did. And just to show that Lamb is the cagiest interrogator this side of Lynndie England, he even includes a clip reel highlighting my dazzlingly varied wardrobe over the years. It's a wide-ranging, fun, and probing interview, so please tune in.

The interview is part of the Q&A series and it airs at 8pm ET and will be rebroadcast at 11pm ET on Sunday, July 10 (an earlier post had the time wrong). For details or to watch online, go here now.

Full disclosure: I did not get to Balzac's The Black Sheep, though I did finish the Steig Larsson trilogy [last summer] (my comments on its verisimilitude here). Here's that clip:
