Al Goldstein, the underground press, and New York in the ’60s: legendary art director Steven Heller [Video]

The legendary art director on Greenwich Village in the ’60s, the aesthetics of rebellion, and life at The New York Timeshttps://reason.com/video/As a teenager growing up in Greenwich Village in the late 1960s, Steven Heller improbably became the art director of pioneering alternative publications such as The New York Free Press, Screw magazine, and The East Village Other before eventually moving on to work at The New York Times and teaching at the School of Visual Arts for decades.He chronicles his youthful misadventures in Growing Up Underground: A Memoir of Counterculture New York. In November, Heller spoke at the Reason Speakeasy, a monthly, unscripted conversation with outspoken defenders of free thinking and heterodoxy in an age of cancel culture and thought police. He regaled the Manhattan audience with tales of arrests on obscenity charges, how design and aesthetics can supercharge the meaning of words and pictures, and why so many in the counterculture adopted exactly the same “uniform of alienation” in the name of individualism.Produced by Nick Gillespie; videography by Kathleen Lakey; edited by Brett Raney and John Osterhoudt; sound editing by Ian Keyser0:00 Intro: Growing Up Underground and NYC in the 60s14:54 How the Boomers Became Individualists24:49 Al Goldstein and the Making of Screw32:26 The New York Free Press as the Local Village Voice40:32 Mel Lyman and the Uniform of Alienation43:42 Brad Holland and Borrowed Time47:37 Reviewing and Looking at Heller’s Work1:01:17 A Modern-Day Counterculture?1:09:31 Audience Question: What are the Negatives of the Long Run Influences?1:14:00 Audience Question: What Gives You Hope for the Future?1:16:06 Audience Question: Was There Danger of Repercussion in Printing Taboo Topics?1:18:54 Repercussions of Modern-Day Cancel Culture

Wallowing around in a gerontocracy [Video]

In this week’s The Reason Roundtable, Matt Welch is back alongside editors Peter Suderman, Katherine Mangu-Ward, and Nick Gillespie as they wade through the missteps of our modern gerontocracy.https://reason.com/podcast/2022/11/21/wallowing-around-in-a-gerontocracy/——————-00:00 – Nancy Pelosi’s countless failures23:23 -President Joe Biden turns 80 years old36:30 – Weekly Listener Question:Hi Friends! I like weed. Marijuana is a wonderful drug (I don’t know why we keep looking for female Viagra when it already exists), and I celebrate recent expansions of legalization. There are risks, just as there are with any drug, and there is a potential for abuse. Nonetheless, if you compare the damage done by weed with the damage done by the war on drugs, it’s not even close. Unsurprisingly, I have noted an uptick in news items describing the dangers of marijuana. Yesterday, The Wall Street Journal declared, “Marijuana May Hurt Smokers More Than Cigarettes Alone.” The conclusion was based on a study of a whopping six marijuana-only smokers. This news trend makes me nervous. What attacks can we expect now that legalization is spreading? I’m thinking flimsy studies to convince everyone it’s a major health risk (from the left) and stories about psychosis (from the right). What do you think is the next move against legal marijuana, and how can we anticipate it?46:53 – Donald Trump returns52:51 – This week’s cultural recommendationsAudio production by Ian KeyserAssistant production by Hunt BeatyMusic: “Angeline,” by The Brothers Steve

FTX Meltdown and the Future of Crypto: Live With Kraken Founder Jesse Powell [Video]

When a cryptocurrency exchange holding $16 billion worth of customer deposits suddenly collapses, what does that portend for the future of the crypto industry? How did Sam Bankman-Fried, the 30-year-old founder of the company and the number two donor to the Democratic party ahead of the recent midterms, win the trust and evade the careful scrutiny of so many venture capitalists, institutional investors, celebrities, and U.S. regulators for so long? Is heavy-handed regulation coming to the world of crypto?Join Reason’s Nick Gillespie and Zach Weissmueller this Thursday at 1 p.m. Eastern for a live discussion of these questions and more with special guest Jesse Powell, the co-founder and CEO of Kraken, one of the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchanges.

CCA II: Parallel Economies | Hillsdale College | November 13 – 16 2022 [Video]

Under the spell of “woke” ideologies, many of America’s largest institutions, both public and private, are increasingly acting in ways detrimental to the freedom and interests of the American people and nation. In response, many Americans are attempting to establish independence from these institutions by creating “parallel economies.” This second CCA of the 2022-2023 academic year, co-sponsored by the Ludwig von Mises Lecture Series, will consider these trends in the areas of business, the media, and agriculture. https://www.hillsdale.edu/event/parallel-economies/November 134:00 p.m.“The Rise of Corporate Fascism”Michael RectenwaldAuthor, Beyond WokeNovember 138:00 p.m.“After FOX News: The Need for Parallel News Sources”John SolomonJust the NewsNovember 144:00 p.m.“Crypto as Parallel Currency?”William J.
