117 (Supplemental): Brett On Porc Therapy With Stephanie Murphy

Porc Therapy is a pro-freedom relationship talk show that takes a unique look at the question of how we can attain the most individual liberty possible, starting with our personal lives and relationships with others. On Porc Therapy, host Stephanie Murphy explores ways to apply voluntaryist or libertarian principles – for example, peace, honesty, respect for natural rights, empathy and compassion, voluntary association, and individual sovereignty – to relationships with friends, loved ones, family, neighbors, coworkers, and more.

115: School Sucks At the Movies (#2) – Charlie Bartlett

Three listeners - Evan, James, and Sarah - join me to discuss the film, Charlie Bartlett. Cast: Tyler Hilton, Anton Yelchin, Hope Davis, Megan Park, Kat Dennings and Robert Downey Jr. Summary: Wealthy teenager Charlie Bartlett (Yelchin) is failing miserably at fitting in at a new public high school run by the world-weary Principal Gardner (Downey, Jr.). As he begins to better understand the social hierarchy, Charlie's honest charm and likability positions him as the resident "psychiatrist" dishing out advice, and the occasional prescription with his partner and fellow student, Murphy Bivens (Hilton), to other students in need. Along the way, he decides to take some of his own advice, find romance, and learn to accept who he is, thus ...
