In today's episode of Lions of Liberty, Marc welcomes in the usual gang of liberty suspects for a return to our oh-so-jovial and booze-fueled fan favorite format, "Libertarians in Living Rooms Drinking Liquor"!

In the show, you'll hear the Lions:

  • Break down Marc's interview with Sam Seder - was Marc's "conversational" approach the right one to take, or should he have been more combative?
  • Discuss the "SatanGate" controversy stemming from the Libertarian Party posting a quote from the Satanic Temple on social media.
  • Answer some "Letters of Liberty" from fans of the show, touching on topics such as - Which states are the least and most libertarian? How do we feel about governments contracting with unions? And more!
