Through the middle ages, Patronage kept art and ideas flourishing. The new system of patronage means a group of like-minded individuals band together to raise their voice above those of centralized media and established power.

For many curious, future libertarians, we are the first libertarian podcast they hear. We are on the front lines of spreading the libertarian message, and we can only exist with your financial support. Thank you for your help in changing the minds of thousands every week.

In just over 24 hours, a recent episode hit 3,000 downloads. This is the most significant 24-hour number we've ever had. Podcasts take time to grow in download numbers, and we are beginning to peak at 13,000. On Election Day 2016, our downloads peaked at 3000 an episode over all time. It is incredible growth, and it is a reflection of the hard work of everyone in WAL.

In November of last year, I considered ending the show. I wasn't sure where to take it. I rededicated myself to the show, to prepping endlessly for each episode, and making sure that every episode leaves you with an "Aha" moment. I am glad I didn't because the community built around our Patreon, Facebook Groups, and Discord have made this my favorite year of WAL. If you haven't joined, get in on the fun now.

Below, I will tell you what we are working on, but first I want to share with you what We Are Libertarians means to listeners like you as shared in via email. If this show ended, then we would have missed out on impacting these lives:

"Thank you again for continuing to put out excellent content. More than many other podcasts that I've listened to, yours is engaging, interesting, and thoughtful." - Joshua

"Your podcast has added remarkable value to my life; thank you!" - Eric

"I started listening to the podcast somewhere in the 30's. And, I've listened to the entire catalog. I got really nervous that the podcast would end after the episode when your wife left you. I'd had so many "AHA!" moments listening to you explain ideas that I hadn't been able to fully form or articulate that I panicked a little thinking about how I would keep learning. And, you'd challenged a lot of my natural instincts - both politically and in my personal life.

And, that's the thing that really stands out for me about your podcast. You've literally helped me become a better person, husband, and father by helping understand the complexities of people. It's OK that my children may not believe the same way I do. And, it's OK to be vulnerable to my wife. And, it's OK to be honest with my co-workers about struggles that I'm facing.

I've become more open about my feelings. I've become more patient with my children. And, in general, you've helped me feel more at peace with my self by helping me accept my own unique flaws." - Jason

Receiving notes like this is truly humbling. WAL was always a hobby. It was a way to meet up with friends on a weekly basis and talk politics. I've been sharing my life with listeners, building a community around libertarianism, and trying to move people towards a free society by making them think. It was a surprise to all of us that it has meant something. It has rededicated us in these past few months to meet your expectations. With Patreon subscribers, we want to make sure there is value for the hard-earned dollars shared with us.

A Patreon subscription is what ensures this podcast continues.

Without it, I could not afford to keep the show, network, and community afloat. We are just too successful for this to remain a hobby. So what are the details of our Patreon program?

About the Show: 

We Are Libertarians helps you sound smarter while talking to your friends. We examine current events from a libertarian perspective while treating modern politics 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. 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 podcast posts on Wednesdays and Fridays.

We hold the following paradigms for our political analysis:

1. First and Foremost, We Ask 'What Is Best For Liberty?" by embracing the following concepts:
•Individualism
•Individual Rights
•Spontaneous Order
•Limited Government
•Free Markets
•The Virtue of Production
•Natural Harmony of Interest
•Peace
2. All Contributions Towards Moving Society in This Direction are Valued
3. The Golden Rule is the Foundational Principle Of a Libertarian Society
4. Government Exists And Politics Will Not Cease In Our Lifetime
5. We Are Libertarians Will Serve As an Entry Point into the Libertarian Movement
6. We Believe in Presenting All Sides of An Issue To Let the Listener or Reader Make Up Their Minds
7. Achieving Liberty is a Never-Ending Fight and Libertarians Must Invest in Future Generations
8. Every Individual Can Make Societal Change
9. We Embrace Complexity and Reject Tribalism
10. We Treat Modern Politics With All of the Irreverence It Deserves
