Love beer? Hate monopolies? Us too.

Join ILSR Senior Researcher Ron Knox for the irreverent Antimonopoly Happy Hour, as he embraces both his love for (local, independent) brews and his distaste for outsized corporate power. Over the hour-long talk show, Ron and a cast of special guests break down the most crucial news (and gossip!) from around the world of antimonopoly politics, economics, and regulation.

The show streams live on Twitch and on demand at the ILSR YouTube channel

Watch the first episode here, and tune in every Thursday at 6:00 p.m. Central for more!
