I could quibble

About anything related to reason magazine, since it publishes a wide variety of libertarian and other views and has regular staff writers who I often disagree with. But the podcast is often an interview, a nearly pure journalism much like C-Span. I recommend the Fifth Column podcast and The Federalist daily podcasts to people who like this podcast.

Policy wonkery for normal people.

Reason has been a libertarian journalism mainstay for decades, bringing the ideas of "Free Minds and Free Markets" to the world.

It's informative without being dry boring policy talk. Pop culture spices up the mix with features including celebrities such as Penn Jillette and Drew Carey, the occasional parody of films and tv.
