Eating Like a Seasteader: Hangtown Fry

During the California Gold Rush of 1849, a lucky prospector struck it rich and proceeded to demand the most expensive meal the nearby saloon could produce.

Thus, the Hangtown Fry was born – a delicious bacon-oyster omelette that went on to become the original San Francisco treat.

It’s also one of the best ways to get your daily supply of DHA. Katie Chowne whips it up, and she and Charlie discuss the political recipes that will lead to the greatest human flourishing – powered by healthy seasteader brains.
