North Star

Richard Epstein is like my North Star for figuring out where the right alignment is on issues. I don’t always align the same as the Professor but he crystallizes things for me to form a judgment.

PS - not quite sure about the change in intro music. Too lugubrious and slow. Why change it at all given that the show is the same?

Fantastic podcast! Very informative!

EDIT: go back to the old intro music!

Richard Epstein is one bright classical liberal (though not quite libertarian). Definitely worth the listen, regardless of your political philosophy.

Liberty & Current Events
