    Got the Gulag Archipelago after listening to this episode. Like you, I’d heard about it forever. But I should probably read it for myself.

    Thanks! It’s been a while since I last heard a talk by Larry Reed. What a great spokesperson for the Liberty Movement!

    FYI. Gulag Archipelago is on audibles, but the narrator is not the best. May I point out Solzhenitsyn’s “One Day in the Life Ivan Denisovich” it’s a short novel about a day in the gulag.
