Garder 'El G Gande' Goldsmith
« on: September 27, 2006, 09:03:53 PM »

I make no bones about it, I think Gardner adds a LOT to the show, by virtue of his freakishly encyclopedic knowledge of History, the Constitution, and legal precedents. In that way, he's almost exactly the opposite of Ian and Mark.

On top of it all, he's a principled anarchocapitalist "Free-Marketeer", like Ian, but not so in-your-face.... rather, he comes off almost as a "moderate", like Mark. He makes anarchocapitalism digestible to the general population.

Last but not least, the whole dynamic of the show was more enjoyable with Gardner on. Maybe just because Gardner stopped Ian and Mark bitching at each other like an old married couple ;)

Yay Gardner!

Anyways, that's my take. What say y'all?

That was the first time I've heard Gardner, and I like his style a lot.  We had two listeners who called in from SL tonight and both made excellent points.  One of the great things about the Gimme Liberty Bar scene is that you can continue discussing an issue in chat after and/or during the show.   

Others are more entertained by the "gays, gernades, and ganja" (which turned out to be the theme the other night), so there is something for everyone.

We're going to have a little party tomorrow night to celebrate hitting 100 members in our Free State Project group (92 now, so we'll hit 100 by the end of the night almost certainly).  Come join us!

Great great great show!  I loved it.  I listen to Gard all the time on WNTK and I am a huge fan of show.  I think he added so much to FTL, he would be the perfect co-host.  Although whoever voted to fire Mark is damn crazy, mark kicks ass also.  The three of them make a great team, although I think the drive to Keene is a bit of a commute for Gard.

Isn't Gardners show 3 hours? I don't know if he could/would do 3 hours of FTL on top of that on a regular basis.

I voted for regular co-host. I think him joining FTL would be great. Even once or twice a week would be great.

Ditto. Although I think a Co-Host extravaganza with Mark, Torgo, Melissa, Johnson, Jason, Mike D, and Gard would be a bit more interesting

GG Smith rocks!  I love that he actually knows something about good music!  Punk lives! Yeah, I am just so happy!  I think 2 or so times per month would be best.  Remember, FTL should get another co-host next year, anyway.

That would be good, but GG Smith already has 2 jobs.  I mean come on...  I think you should start calling in on a certain night every week so you can become an unoffical co-host :)

I got the feeling from the show that both Ian and Mark were glad to have another co-host to 'bounce' off.

With Ian and Mark living in the same house and spending 6 nights a week working together it is not going to be long before the interaction between them becomes stale without the opinions of co-hosts. As Johnson, Torgo, Melissa and Jason all stated that they were all moving to New Hampshire at some stage in the future I wonder how their plans are coming along?

Although I don't agree about their interaction becoming stale I was wondering about this also. I miss the co-hosts.
