Description

We Are Libertarians helps you sound smarter while talking to your friends. If you struggle to understand politics, we explain it from an independent, libertarian point of view 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. We exist to demystify, delegitimize, and desanctify government.
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.
The show is made up of several series. The majority of episodes are episodes explaining a story in the news. We label these so you can easily look up episodes in the RSS feed by keyword.
- The Swamp Explained is a look at the inner workings of Washington DC with Rob Quartel.
- The Path to Libertarianism features interviews with prominent libertarians discussing the influences that led them to libertarianism.
- Path to Libertarianism Q&A takes all of the basic questions that new libertarians may have about the philosophy and answers them.
- The Cost – The Human Toll of Public Policy is a conversation with someone that has dealt with the true costs of government intervention.
- Libertarian Politics and Policy is a short look at how libertarians would organize society. (Formerly WAL Daily)
- We occasionally feature political and ideological debates.
- We also offer two bonus shows for our Patreon members. Ideological Origins is an in-depth look at how political ideas have developed through history. Build the WAL is a show that discusses the inside details of building a platform like WAL.

Chris Spangle, Harry Price, Rhinehold, and Hodey Johns discuss and debate the binary choice presented on social media of "open the economy" vs. "let millions die." The realities of a global pandemic combined with an economic meltdown are more complex and hopeful than many are making it sound. We try to parse out where the truth lies. Then we look at the failure of regulators and why we need to hold the President, the FDA, and the CDC accountable once this crisis has concluded.

Chris Spangle talks to Fiona Harrigan and Jakob Puckett about libertarian solutions to climate change and energy policy. Enis wrote in and asked: There has been one thing that has been bugging me quite a lot though; how would climate change and pollution get tackled in a libertarian society? While most current governments are not great at it either, ideas such as carbon tax actually make a lot of sense. That could in fact encourage people to invest more in clean energies, which are actually more profitable than fossil fuels. I have had direct experiences with unregulated businesses operate despite their utter lack of care for the health of the citizens. What do you think we as libertarians can do to promote sustainability? So we answered it.

hopefully you were kidding or making fun of trumps tweet when congratulating Kansas and not Missouri since the chiefs are based in Missouri.

Chris - I'm sad to see this show go. I only recently came to the realization that I've been eating up Leftist propaganda as truth for most of my life, and after several weeks of research and meditation, I came out the other side a Libertarian. I think what you're offering is important and sorely lacking in today's highly polarized world. It's hard to see where the truth is, when you're fed half stories colored with a particular narrative through most of the "news" and media behemoths. This show has had a tremendous impact on me in a very short period of time, and I really appreciate the effort and passion you sew into each episode. So anyway, thank you, and God speed. I can't wait to hear your next project.

In the words of Viktor Frankl - "a man's suffering is similar to the behavior of a gas. If a certain quantity of gas is pumped into an empty chamber, it will fill the chamber completely and evenly, no matter how big the chamber. Thus suffering completely fills the human soul and conscious mind, no matter whether the suffering is great or little. Therefore the "size" of human suffering is absolutely relative."

That's not what a smart power grid is. You guys need to get some real scientists and engineers on here. Jesus. I literally work in the oil industry and the second half of this episode was still cringeworthy.

Not sure why for-profit corporations, non-profit corporations, and unions are all being discussed as if they serve the public good equivalently. Serving shareholders vs. serving employees imply very different intentions for influencing elections.

can we move WAL daily to a separate feed? It's as if my favorite Mexican place decided to serve Mexican food only on Fridays. I drive by it every day, and sometimes it's Italian day or Chinese day or Peruvian day, and that food is fine, but I really just want to go on Fridays for the fare I fell in love with.

Do you realize that it took 20 minutes before you got to the first topic? That's entirely too long... especially when you speak about such hyper specific stuff for the first block.. I tend to just start your show halfway through an episode because I have no idea how long you will tell us the same self promo pitch for at least 15 minutes. Content please.
