    Libertarianism Builds Communities While Podcasting Changes Communities

    Libertarianism Builds Communities While Podcasting Changes Communities

    How can we empower people and liberate communities? Personal growth through engaging in service to others will rebuild the fabric of American society, and podcasting is the home base from which libertarians can build power networks. Chris Spangle speaks to the Podcast on the Plaza podcast about the power of libertarianism to unite people and the opportunity podcasting brings to individuals seeking to build a community and personal network.

    New Show: Podcasting and Platforms with Chris Spangle

    New Show: Podcasting and Platforms with Chris Spangle

    I love podcasting as much as I love politics, and I am starting a new show to walk you through my podcasting method. Listen to the first episode then subscribe here - https://link.chtbl.com/podcasting-and-platforms!
    Where do I begin? This is often the first question asked by a new podcaster (and old ones looking to start a new brand). This question usually paralyzes someone looking to start a show. They'll look at other shows, see 4 years of growth and think, "I have no idea how to replicate it." Or, "Who would listen to me? I am not an expert." This resistance is completely normal, but it isn't an excuse for procrastinating. In this episode, I talk about the 5 or 6 years of talking myself out of starting this show because I want you to know that is a common reason people never begin. It is the first hurdle to building a great show.
