This Libertarian Community Organizer Wants To 'Free the People': Podcast

Matt Kibbe explains why "beer is freedom," and talks about his new documentary series with Rep. Thomas Massie, Off the Grid.


In previous lives, Matt Kibbe has been a congressional staffer, the head of FreedomWorks, and a New York Times best-selling author.

Thomas Massie's "quest for a self-sustainable life on his farm in eastern Kentucky.
