Episode 4 – Dallas Buyers Club (1:38:14)

We bring on Doc Anarchy to discuss one of the most libertarian films in recent memory, the Dallas Buyers Club starring Matthew McConaughey as Ron Woodroof – a rodeo cowboy who contracts HIV in the early days of the spread of AIDS.  There is a lot to unpack in this movie and we found ourselves cheering for Ron as he battled the government that was preventing him from helping himself and helping others by establishing a market for drugs and remedies of their own choosing.
