Wednesday, January 18th, 2017

On today's Electric Libertyland, Brian welcomes in a favorite of the liberty podcasting world, the one and only Johnny "Rocket" Adams, to resurrect the zombie corpse of 'Rand Pauluses and Minuses' (#Randypants), examine Trump's statements on healthcare and chat a bit about the confirmation hearing for Gen.
