A Brief About This Project

Give us an hour, and you'll understand the news. Chris Spangle uses history to bring context to current events while presenting politics from a libertarian perspective. With a group of cohosts from across the political spectrum, we toss out the screaming heads and put people before political parties. We give you the tools to think differently in a world with more than Team Red & Blue.
