In the first of a series of shows filmed at this year’s PorcFest, Matt Kibbe sits down with organizers Carla Gericke and Dennis Pratt to discuss this remarkable gathering of liberty lovers from all across the nation. PorcFest is just one part of the larger Free State Project, an effort to gather libertarians and other freedom-minded folk in the state of New Hampshire to influence public policy and build a community. Whether you want to run for office, start a business, or just live near people who share your ideals, the Free State Project hopes to create an island of liberty apart from the increasingly polarized and authoritarian tendencies gripping the rest of the country.
