As happens sporadically, the SiriusXM Insight channel (121 on your satellite dial) is letting libertarians run amok all week between noon at 1 p.m. ET, otherwise known as the Insight Hour. I will be the host for these eventful five days, surfing through the choppy waves of campaign season with the likes of Kyle Smith, Elizabeth Nolan Brown, Liz Mair, Gustavo Arellano, Kmele Foster, and more.

Today's episode will be focused on various angles to the same question: When anti-speech protesters apply a heckler's veto to an anti-speech speaker, who should you root hardest against, and how do you sort through the various free speech/First Amendment claims? Joining in that quest will be beloved ex-Reasoner Michael C. Moynihan for the duration of the show, plus Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) President Greg Lukianoff, and Decision Desk HQ's Jeffrey Blehar, who was at the contentious Donald Trump rally in Chicago. Please call in at 877-974-7487 to join the conversation.

Some Reason commentary on the Trump/protesters/speech question from Nick Gillespie, Ed Krayewski, and Robby Soave.
