ReasonReasonReasonReasonThe Reason podcast airs three times a week and brings you cutting-edge conversation about libertarian approaches to politics, culture, and ideas. Subscribe now (for free!) on iTunes and never miss an episode.

ReasonReasonReasonReasonOn Mondays, Reason's Katherine Mangu-Ward, Peter Suderman, Matt Welch, and I kick around the most-important stories of the past week, survey what's likely to happen in the coming week, and discuss the books, shows, movies, and music that is at the top of our consumption lists. The other two episodes are usually interviews conducted by me with authors, politicians, and other agents of influence. We also pump out audio versions of our video interviews and the Reason-Soho Forum debates, presentations by Reason luminaries, and more.

Recent episodes include a Q&A with Wired co-founder Jane Metcalfe, who now heads up Neo.Life, a website that is documenting and championing the "NeoBiological Revolution" that lets us hack our own bodies and take control of our minds, diseases, and future like never before; an extended reminiscence by Robert W. Poole, an early editor of Reason magazine and the creator of Reason Foundation, the nonprofit that publishes this site (and the podcast), about what we've gotten right and wrong over the first 50 years of existence; and a no-holds-barred catch-up with record-setting Libertarian Party presidential candidate Gary Johnson, who dishes dirt on how Hillary Clinton's trolls caused him more problems than Russian hackers and why Donald Trump's policies aren't all bad (even though his rhetoric is). And for god's sake, don't miss my wide-ranging and irreverent podcast with Reason movie reviewer and rock-journalism legend Kurt Loder, who explains why the Academy Awards program always sucks even though movies are great.

The easiest way to subscribe is via iTunes, but you can also listen via our SoundCloud channel, follow us via Google Play or any RSS feed too. Go here for our full archive.

    Now's the time to cash in on that heat and get behind a paywall. A great big, beautiful, tremendous paywall.

  • Leo Kovalensky II||

    Yes but make the WSJ pay for it.

  • OpenBordersLiberal-tarian||

    Boom! Blue checkmark Twitter user DESTROYS right wingers who harass Elizabeth Warren over her Native American heritage and want her to take a DNA test: DNA test the 97% of Congress that claims Irish ancestry on St. Patrick's Day.

    Take that, right wing trolls!

    0wn'd !!1!

  • OpenBordersLiberal-tarian||

    Damn right. That's some of the most hardc0re uber pwn@g3 I've ever seen.

  • Eidde||

    DNA test? How about a blood alcohol test, that's just as reliable in finding out who's Irish, am I right?

  • Scarecrow Repair & Chippering||

    I thought it was Indians who couldn't hold their firewater.

  • Eidde||

    That *would* explain some of Sen. Warren's positions.

  • StackOfCoins||

    What's the difference between an Irish Wedding and an Irish Funeral?

    One less drunk.

  • SIV||

  • Eidde||

    He'd have to be denaturalized first. And that would be wrong.

  • SIV||

    No it wouldn't. His kind of immigrant is BAD FOR AMERICA..

  • OpenBordersLiberal-tarian||

    Deporting anybody from the United States is no better than enforcing fugitive slave laws, as my favorite libertarian writer Shikha Dalmia has argued.

    And certainly David Frum shouldn't be deported. He's one of the few sensible conservative writers who's on the right side of history with respect to Drumpf. Granted, Frum wrote a book referring to the previous Worst President Ever as "The Right Man." But I'd say his anti-Drumpf advocacy has redeemed him. In fact, I welcome all neoconservative Iraq war hawks into #TheResistance.

  • Scarecrow Repair & Chippering||

    Yes, go ahead, stick your dicks and clits into electric sockets and see what #TheResistance really is.

  • OpenBordersLiberal-tarian||

    #TheResistance is the most important social movement in this country in decades. I know I felt a tremendous sense of accomplishment when I added it to my Twitter bio.

  • Leo Kovalensky II||

    Never change!

  • Eidde||

    I'm 99.99% sure he's being sarcastic

  • loveconstitution1789||

    Its a joke account, so of course the other joke accounts love it.

    Reason staff love it because it gets some of their real views documented which helps their sock puppet to real person ratio getting as many website hits as possible each day.

  • Eidde||

    In moderation it can be funny.

  • Tony||

    What you do here is impressive, but one does worry about one's mental health.
