This video podcast features the latest stories from Reason TV, the video-journalism arm of Reason—the planet's leading source of news, politics, and culture from a principled libertarian perspective. Our popular YouTube Channel and Facebook page, which receive millions of views every month, offer a mix of heavily reported documentaries, in-depth interviews, video essays, and laugh-out-loud parodies—all from a POV that you won't get from legacy media and dead-inside spokesbots for old left-right, liberal-conservative, Democratic-Republican outlets. Founded in 2007 by comedian Drew Carey, Reason TV explores and defends "free minds and free markets" in all aspects of human activity and it’s the nation's leading producer of libertarian video content.

    Is This Gary Johnson's Last Campaign?

    With only 12 days remaining until election day, Gary Johnson brought Reason along for an intimate look at his campaign for a U.S. senate seat. Johnson and his supporters traversed New Mexico, attempting to win over voters from the snow-capped Rocky Mountains in the north of the state, to the rose-colored dunes of the Chihuahuan desert near the Mexican border. He campaigned at a biker bar in Las Cruces and to members of the Sikh faith in Española. Not only did the former New Mexico governor grant Reason privileged access to his political life, he also showed a surprising willingness to cast aside rehearsed talking points. From the back seat of his SUV, Johnson spontaneously shared many of his private hopes, fears, ambitions, jokes, as well as insights into his personality. Running as a Libertarian, Johnson's poll numbers have been as high as the twenties in a three-man race—and as low as 8 percent. Throughout the contest, he has maintained that he's not a protest candidate: winning the senate seat is his only goal. This campaign could be Johnson's last, as he's pledged to give up politics if he fails to win this race. Produced, photographed, and edited by Todd Krainin.

    Policing for Profit? California Towns Bill Residents Thousands for Nuisance Violations

    Cesar Garcia and his wife Claudia have lived in their home in the desert town of Coachella, California, for more than 13 years. They've raised three kids there, and Claudia runs an at-home daycare out of the house. But three years ago, they made a mistake that could cost them their home and livelihood. When converting their back porch into a TV room, they neglected to get a permit from the city. Garcia ignored early warnings from Coachella's buildings department. Then a team of inspectors showed up unannounced. He entered a guilty plea in court, paid a $900 fine, and demolished the structure as ordered by the judge. Next, he got the proper permit before rebuilding and upgrading the porch into a room for the daycare. He thought the issue was resolved. But six months later a bill arrived for $26,000. As the local newspaper the Desert Sun first reported, the city of Coachella is holding Garcia responsible for paying the cost of his own prosection. Produced by Zach Weissmueller.

    How Third Parties Are Getting Screwed This Election Season

    Republicans and Democrats may genuinely hate each other, but they love their own power even more. That's why they collude so often to keep those pesky Libertarians, Greens, and independents away from the lucrative levers of government. The 2018 midterms have been chock full of two-party shenanigans, all too often aided and abetted by journalists, pollsters, and the voters themselves. It all starts with ballot access. Written by Matt Welch. Camera by Jim Epstein. Edited by Alexis Garcia. Photo credits: Bill Clark/CQ Roll Call/Newscom

    Socialism vs. Capitalism: <em>Jacobin's</em> Bhaskar Sunkara and Economist Gene Epstein Debate

    Is socialism more effective than capitalism in bringing freedom to the masses? That was the resolution at a recent public debated hosted by the Soho Forum on October 15, 2018. It featured Bhaskar Sunkara, the founding editor and publisher of Jacobin magazine, and Gene Epstein, the Soho Forum's director and former economics and books editor of Barron's. Naomi Brockwell moderated. It was an Oxford-style debate in which the audience votes on the resolution at the beginning and end of the event, and the side that gains the most ground is victorious. Epstein, arguing the negative, prevailed by convincing about 11 percent of audience members to change their minds. Music: "January" by Kai Engle is licensed under a CC-BY creative commons license.
