The environmentalist and anti-vaccine activist talks about his presidential run and whether he'd jail climate change skeptics.


This is the audio version of The Reason Livestreamwhich takes place every Thursday at 1 p.m. Eastern.

The guest for this week's livestream was Robert F. Kennedy Jr., the environmentalist and anti-vaccine activist who is running for the Democratic presidential nomination. My colleague Zach Weissmueller and I talked with him about the war in Ukraine, COVID-19 policy, gun rights, bitcoin, pardoning Julian Assange, Edward Snowden, and Ross Ulbricht, and much more.
