Diving Deep with James Reilly

James Reilly and I have been online friends for years and years. He’s the closest thing to a bona fide libertarian theorist I can think of who isn’t a PhD economist. He’s just a regular dude. Well, not regular per se. He teaches historical fencing (that’s fencing with big swords, not the little sticks little prissy fencers use). He’s a musician. His daughter is a published graphic novelist. He’s just super-interesting. And we have great conversations. Since we hadn’t had a great conversation since I started a podcast, I asked him to have one and let me record it. This is the result. Enjoy!

I’ll warn you, we get super deep into libertarian theory wonkery. If that’s not your thing, try skipping to the next section.

Stop Being Dumb

No, seriously. You don’t know enough about economics, history, logic, and even science fiction. Fix that by joining Liberty Classroom, the amazing online university brought to us by Tom Woods. I’ll see you in the Q&A’s!
