Reason Speakeasy: Yascha Mounk

  • This event has passed.

September 26, 2023 @ 6:30 pm

The Reason Speakeasy is a monthly, unscripted conversation with outspoken defenders of free thinking and heterodoxy. It doubles as a live taping of The Reason Interview with Nick Gillespie podcast and always provides a great evening of camaraderie and conversation about cutting-edge topics and ideas.

On Tuesday, September 26, Nick will interview Johns Hopkins professor Yascha Mounk, the founder of the online magazine Persuasion and the author of the important new book The Identity Trap, which explains how identity politics and social justice discourse have come to dominate contemporary discussions, their negative influence on free expression, and how to confront and defeat them. Yascha was the prime mover behind the 2020 open letter on “justice and open debate” in Harper’s magazine and is one of the best defenders of free speech and the marketplace of ideas. This is going to be a great conversation.

Doors open at 6:30PM, program starts at 7PM and features audience Q&A. Tickets are $10 and includes beer, wine, soft drinks, a buffet of snacks and appetizers, and an evening of camaraderie and conversation.

Space is limited, so please buy your tickets now.
