About This Project
To the politically homeless, the Chris Spangle Show provides entertaining and thoughtful conversations from a libertarian perspective on current events to help the audience feel more informed when discussing issues with their friends. We center our solutions through civil society (think nonprofits, religious groups, churches, or strong families) instead of government or business as a compassionate alternative. We cover news, culture, charity, history, libertarianism, Christianity and faith, public policy, communication, and more. Our host is Chris Spangle, a 20-year veteran of politics and media.
Written by Chris Spangle, host of the Chris Spangle Show, History of Modern Politics, and Liberty Explained, podcasts on the We Are Libertarians Podcast Network. He is also the co-host of the Patdown podcast, a comedy podcast with comedians Ms. Pat and Deon Curry. Chris Spangle has been podcasting since 2007, and now teaches podcasting at PodcastingAndPlatforms.com. He also hosts the public affairs radio show “We Thought You Might Like To Know...” on Indiana radio stations which focuses on nonprofits.
