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.

Chris Spangle introduces the We Are Libertarians Horse Race, a new concept for helping libertarian candidates raise money and their profile. Mark Rutherford, Michael Dixon, and Chris Spangle ask questions of two candidates. The candidate with the best campaign will come out of this show with the WAL endorsement, $500 of consulting services from Mark and Michael’s political consulting firm, and we will ask our audience to donate a boatload of money to their campaign.
We are launching the We Are Libertarians Horse Race Club. Club members will donate $10 a month (or more) to promote this episode on the We Are Libertarians Facebook to raise awareness of their two campaigns. Sign up at WeAreLibertarians.com/HorseRace. Libertarian-leaning candidates of any party can sign up there as well.
