    Speakers and Panel Discussions

    Joshua Eakle and Justin Cornett, members of the Libertarian Party of Tennessee, will share their unique approach to outreach through their weeknight radio program, Speaking Freely.

    Joshua Eakle is the Chairman of the Knox County Libertarian Party and the founder of RECURO.org, a media site created to promote liberty-minded ideas on Tennessee politics and beyond. In his day job, Joshua works as the Director of Marketing for Worldwide Equipment Corporate. He currently holds an Associates Degree with a focus in Political Science.

    Justin Cornett is the Regional Coordinator for the Libertarian Party of Tennessee and Director for the ETNLP. He currently works as a Property & Casualty Insurance Agent with Allstate. In his free time, Justin likes playing basketball, arguing politics, and enjoying nature. His latest project is a team effort on a radio show called "Speaking Freely," a show which intends to spoil the "regular Joe's" loyalty to the two party system.
