We are libertarians. We love politics and the news, and our mission is to apply libertarian principles to the stories you and your friends are discussing. We want to make you sound smarter while treating modern politics with all the irreverence it deserves. We seek to teach people about the news of the day, the libertarian philosophy, the libertarian movement, and how to think differently. Our host is Chris Spangle, a fifteen year veteran of politics and media. He leads a discussion among friends that span the libertarian spectrum of thought. The twice-weekly podcast was founded in 2012.
