My guest Charlie Deist runs the libertarian group blog Let a Thousand Nations Bloom. He's interested in seasteading and an adult convert to Roman Catholicism. We talk about seasteading as personal praxis, the experience of learning to sail, the philosophy of Rene Girard, and the conflict between grace and responsibility. Charlie is currently the producer of the libertarian radio program "The Bob Zadek Show"
