About This Project

I feel like a lot of you do: Politically homeless. Spiritually thirsty. Financially and relationally fragile. Life in the mid-21st century has left many of us feeling lost and yearning for belonging. You're not alone. To make sense of our moment, I talk with writers, historians, educators, innovators, friends, and family about current events, political philosophy, history, family, and faith to strive for change — within ourselves, our communities, and our nation. I examine news and culture from a Christian libertarian perspective to understand today's divisions. From there, I want to envision a more optimistic and prosperous tomorrow through political and cultural action that embraces mercy. Subscribe to be a part of something different.

About Chris Spangle

Chris Spangle, born in Plainfield, IN, is an influential American podcaster, media professional, and actor. He began his career as the producer for "Abdul in the Morning" on Newstalk 1430 WXNT in 2004. It was there he began podcasting in 2007.

After witnessing the broken two-party system there, Chris moved towards libertarianism, serving as the Executive Director of the Libertarian Party from 2008-2012. While there, he founded the "We Are Libertarians" podcast, now known as the "Chris Spangle Show," amassing over six million downloads since 2012. Chris is also the host of Liberty Explained and the History of Modern Politics on the We Are Libertarians Podcast Network. His radio show "We Thought You Might Like To Know" covers issues facing Hoosiers and the nonprofits that solve them and is distributed by the Indiana Association of School Broadcasters.

In 2013, he served in a dual capacity as a senior account manager at the Englehart Group and as the Marketing Director of the Advocates for Self-Government.

In 2013, he transitioned back to radio as the Digital Director for the nationally syndicated "BOB & TOM Show." This role saw him oversee numerous areas, including segment production, audio and video streaming, social media, and editing and uploading 18,000 podcasts.

Chris's collaboration with comedian Ms. Pat in 2019 gave birth to the "Patdown" podcast, a hit that reached #8 on the Apple Podcast charts. Their successful collaboration paved the way for Chris's network television debut on BET's "Ms. Pat Settles It" in 2023.

Chris also ventured into podcast consulting. In 2019, he began assisting other podcasters, and by 2021, he co-founded "Leaders and Legends, LLC" with Robert Vane, helping podcasters launch their shows and offering high-level media strategies. He is also the host of Podcasting and Platforms, a show that allows listeners create beautiful things of enduring value.

Chris's contributions to the podcasting realm are remarkable: he's hosted over 3,200 hours of content and uploaded 20,000 episodes, resulting in 52 million downloads across various shows.

On the personal front, Chris is a believer in Jesus, attending the Redeemer Bible Church in Indianapolis. He's happily married to Reagan, and they are blessed with two children.

His website is Chris-Spangle.com.
