What better way to end a hard year than to visit Grafton, New Hampshire as author Matthew Hongoltz-Hetling as he reports on the people who lived there during the Free Town Project? In the new book, A Libertarian Walks Into a Bear, Hongoltz-Hetling follows Graftonites and some "colonizers' who saw it as the perfect place to build a utopian community free of government.

Where does the balance between individual rights and the common good exist in American politics? What can this book tell us about the current controversy on mask wearing during this pandemic? And what kind of governance would suit the bears of New Hampshire the best?

Host Lisa Schweitzer is joined by Anthony Orlando, Aubrey Hicks, and David Sloane.
