Recent radio interviews on "Democracy and Political Ignorance," and on politics of science fiction

|The Volokh Conspiracy |

I recently did radio interviews with Ray Dunaway of CBS radio in Connecticut, and Steve Austin of the Australian Broadcast Corp. in Brisbane, Australia.

The CBS interview focused on the new second edition of my book Democracy and Political Ignorance: Why Smaller Government is Smarter. The audio is available here.

The Australian interview was longer and more wide-ranging. It covered multiple subjects including my case for limiting and decentralizing government power, the politics of science fiction and fantasy (Star Trek, Star Wars, the Lord of the Rings, and Harry Potter all came up!), and even my experience as an immigrant to the US from the Soviet Union. The audio is available here (though possibly only until May 27). My segment starts at about the 1:40:00 mark and lasts for roughly twenty minutes.
