Stephanie Slade is a senior editor at Reason, the magazine of "free minds and free markets"; a fellow in liberal studies at the Acton Institute; and a media fellow at the Institute for Human Ecology at Catholic University of America. Her writing has appeared in America, The New York Times, U.S. News and World Report, the Online Library of Liberty, and elsewhere. She covers the intersection of religion and politics.
Slade is best known for her piece "Why I Am a Pro-Life Libertarian," her magazine feature on booze-producing capitalist Catholic monks, and her defenses of "fusionism" (which probably isn't what you think it is!). Oh, and don't miss her discussing the differences between comprehensive and political libertarianism on The Reason Interview With Nick Gillespie.
In 2013, Slade was named a finalist for the Bastiat Prize for Journalism. In 2016, she was selected as a Robert Novak Journalism Fellow. She serves as a member of the board of advisors for Young Voices and has been a guest on a variety of podcasts, including Jonah Goldberg's The Remnant and Charlie Sykes' The Bulwark Podcast.
Prior to joining Reason, Slade worked as a speechwriter and pollster. She's a proud graduate of the University of Florida, where she studied economics and political science. Follow her on Twitter: @sladesr.
