We Are Libertarians
Our goal at the Chris Spangle Show is to help you sound smarter while talking to your friends. If you struggle to understand politics, we explain it from an independent, libertarian perspective with all of the irreverence it deserves. We toss out the screaming heads, put people before political parties, and give context to the news to make you think. Our host is Chris Spangle, a fifteen year veteran of politics and media. Founded in 2012 as We Are Libertarians, and is published every Saturday. Join WAL Plus for bonus podcasts, complete archives, commercial-free shows, and more! It is part of the We Are Libertarians Podcast Network.
