We started the show two years ago with just a handful of listeners: ourselves and our friends. Last year, listeners downloaded over 150,000 episodes of Surprisingly Free. One reason we’ve grown so much is that we’ve been lucky to have fantastic, interesting guests come on the show, and we’re incredibly grateful for that. The other reason is word of mouth. You’ve helped grow the show by telling your friends and colleagues about it. Thank you for that. We’d like to ask that you help us grow even more by telling some more friends. Hopefully, this 100th episode might be a good way to introduce someone to the types of ideas we cover on the show. So if you could please share this with friends, tweet it, post it to Facebook or your blog, we’d be more than grateful.

    You forgot to add that you and the Mercatus Center are part of the well funded Koch Brothers propaganda machine.
