In this episode, I first welcome Maria Lily to talk about the economic value of freedom of expression. You may be surprised by how much you stand to gain if freedom of speech were to improve. I then have a chat with my dear friend Martin, who explains the Epicurean roots of classical liberalism and why this philosophical movement fell victim to the spread of fake news.

This month’s wine selection is the Château Larose-Trintaudon Haut-Médoc 2016, a Bordeaux-style red blend. This generously structured wine offers a great bang for your buck, with a price tag of approximately $27 a bottle. This cru bourgeois will pair nicelywith a rack of lamb, roast beef, or some good cheese (especially blue cheese).
