Our Editor's Take

Matt Welch, Nick Gillespie, Katherine Mangu-Ward, and Peter Suderman host The Reasonable Roundtable podcast. They all work as editors of the libertarian-focused Reason Magazine. Each week they discuss trending stories and share their opinions.

Libertarians are passionate about equal rights for all people at all times. They hold liberty as a core value. This logic comes across to listeners as the hosts engage in thought-provoking conversations. As editors, they research and write about political and cultural stories daily. Regular topics include the GOP, Donald Trump, Ron Desantis, disinformation, and Mar-a-Lago. They also discuss Joe Biden, Elon Musk, Ukraine, COVID-19, and gun violence.

The Reasonable Roundtable releases a new show every Monday. In addition to sharing each week's biggest stories, the hosts engage with listener questions. Questions can range from their thoughts on cancel culture to Supreme Court rulings. They might also involve the midterm elections or pending legislation.

Peter Suderman and Nick Gillespie are hosts of two other Reason podcasts. Peter covers the mic on The Reason Rundown with Peter Suderman. He sits down with other Reason writers to discuss one big story of the week. Nick shares interviews with 21st-century-defining people on The Reason Interview with Nick Gillespie podcast. On The Reasonable Roundtable, they unite for a podcast underpinned by diverse voices and complementary experience.
