Reason Roundtable podcast at NYC comedy cellar

Last week, editors Matt Welch, Katherine Mangu-Ward, Nick Gillespie, and Peter Suderman touched the stage at New York City’s eminent Comedy Cellar to record an episode of The Reason Roundtable in front of a live audience. Topics ranged from marijuana aromas to terrible 2024 presidential candidates, and included some geographical sparring over contrasting libertarian lifestyle choices.
