This is the webpage for my YouTube channel Agoric Café, devoted to philosophy, politics, history, literature, and whatever else I feel like sounding off on, as well as video interviews with interesting people. (“Agoric” references both the Athenian marketplace or agorá where Socrates used to engage people in conversation [and along the way laid the foundations for the Platonic, Aristotelean, and Stoic philosophical traditions], and agorism, a form of left-wing pro-free-market but anti-capitalist form of anarchism – so, a couple of signposts to my interests.)

I teach philosophy at Auburn University, head up the Molinari Institute, and blog at Austro-Athenian Empire. Follow me on Facebook. I’ll probably add more info about myself here later.
