In today’s episode, host Marc Clair welcomes in standup comedian and host of the libertarian podcast Part of the Problem, Dave Smith! After Marc and Dave confirm that they aren’t assholes, Dave explains how he first got turned onto libertarian ideas through the presidential campaign of Ron Paul, how he incorporates his political ideas into his comedy, and the kind of reactions he has received to his politics in the comedic world. Dave and Marc then look at the current political scene, and break down the Libertarian Presidential candidates (we recorded just prior to the LP convention, and our comments are actually a little more interesting in hindsight!) And you won’t want to miss Dave’s story about meeting the creepy Dick Cheney in a Fox green room!
Stick around after the interview, as I share my brief thoughts on the nomination of Gary Johnson and William Weld as the Presidential and Vice Presidential candidates of the Libertarian Party.
