Caity & Dan Greene
We are Caity and Dan Greene, a married couple from Glasgow, Scotland.
We started the Greening Out podcast in 2014 as an outlet for what some have called our "libertarian rambling". But since we started it has grown to more than just said rambling. We look at a variety of different subjects from modern day pop culture to alternative spirituality through our libertarian lens. We also interview a wide range of people from all over the world on a range of different topics that interest us. We don't always agree with our guests but we never censor them.
Greening Out is not always libertarian theory or political analysis but it is always fun and varied.
Caity and Dan welcome back Antony Sammeroff for a second time to the show. Antony begins by explaining the difference between ‘libertarianism’ and ‘voluntaryism’ and moral philosophies versus political philosophies. We talk about labels and how they are used in society. We get into terms like ‘anarchist’ and […]

By Dan Greene The 4am face of the lady behind the thick glass begins to talk to me, it never changes every time I come in. “Who is your doctor? Why are you bothering us at this time? We’ll get you seen in like an hour, go sit […]
Caity and Dan finally acknowledge that there is a general election looming in the UK and start to attempt some political analysis (which inevitably goes off on strange tangents). Caity starts by explaining why she feels like a voyeur when she looks at sociopathic politicians screwing the people […]

We chat about the propaganda ‘docudrama’ UKIP – The First 100 Days and what an absurd vision it promotes. We talk about UKIP generally and their policies and why we’re not UKIP supporters, the EU, the Scottish independence referendum and how the UK mainstream media try to shut […]
