About This Show
Founded in 1968, Reason is the planet's leading source of news, politics, and culture from a libertarian perspective. Hosted by Nick Gillespie, Katherine Mangu-Ward, Matt Welch, and other Reason journalists, our podcast explores "free minds and free markets." It features provocative, in-depth interviews with authors, comedians, filmmakers, musicians, economists, scientists, business leaders, and elected officials. Keep up to date on the latest happenings in our increasingly libertarian world from a point of view you won't get from legacy media and boring old left-right, liberal-conservative publications.

How We Became a 'Nation of Narcs' and How To Fix It
2 days ago
Reason reporter Mike Riggs talks with Nick Gillespie about his story "A Nation of Narcs," which argues that Americans have developed "a nasty habit of inviting the state into people's lives for tiny offenses." Riggs discusses how class, race, and ethnicity often play out when it comes to the "hassle factor" imposed on individuals who are just trying to get on with their lives. And he lays out some ways to turn back the tide.
Riggs and Gillespie also talk about the legacy of Tom Wolfe, the journalist who more than any other went out and explored the real lives of Americans and all the crazy, wonderful things they were up to.
