Tonight's episode of The Independents, which airs on Fox Business Network live at 9 pm ET and then repeats again at midnight, will feature a mix of familiar and unfamiliar faces grappling with how to make the world more free.

Glenn "Instapundit" Reynolds (Reason archive here) will be on to talk about his new book, The New School: How the Information Age Will Save American Education from Itself. John "Show-Me Cannabis" Payne (Reason archive here) will talk about the awful case of Jeff Mizanskey, a nonviolent pot offender in Missouri who is seeking clemency after serving 20 years of a life sentence. Party panelists Rich Benjamin (a Demos senior fellow) and Jedediah Bila (Fox News contributor) will be on to discuss President Barack Obama's latest speech on unemployment benefits and Dennis Rodman's latest foray into totalitarian diplomacy.

Also under discussion: Former defense secretary Robert Gates' White House-slamming tell-all, Oklahoma City's statehouse Satanists, and Kennedy excursion into the Polar Vortex to ask Times Square visitors just what the hell they're doing outside.
