We Are Libertarians helps you sound smarter while talking to your friends. Our goal is to help you understand national and local government as well as politics and policies from an independent point of view. We examine current events from a libertarian perspective while treating modern politics 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. He leads a discussion amongst friends and high-profile guests that span the libertarian spectrum of thought. Founded in 2012, the main podcast posts on Wednesdays with a shorter daily episode the other days.
