    The Domestic Violence Network (DVN) on the Impact of the Pandemic

    Kelly McBride, Executive Director of the Domestic Violence Network (DVN), joins us. The Domestic Violence Network is a nonprofit organization that has existed for over 20 years to bring all members of the Central Indiana community together to change the culture that leads to domestic violence through advocacy, education, and collaboration. Their work is focused on education with the idea that informing our community on issues related directly and indirectly to domestic and other types of violence will change the culture that leads to that violence. DVN does not provide direct services to survivors of domestic violence, but our work is heavily based on prevention so our service providers can focus on serving those impacted by these human issues. Their website is www.dvnconnect.org.

Very Refreshing

This is a wonderful podcast with a refreshing libertarian take on politics and modern events. It’s an alternate libertarian view from other podcasts I listen to, but the one that makes the most sense to me. Try it out!

Life Changing

Since I joined the We Are Libertarians fandom in early 2019, many of my views have been challenged & I’m so thankful for it. After listening to this podcast & going through the current election season, I have opened my eyes to all of the bias & fluff that national news media spits out. Chris dedicates his life to this show & you can tell! He truly cares about giving information & context to all the stuff you hear about. Definitely check out the older episodes (2018-2019 I think??) where Hodey Johns & others spend 30 mins on interesting topics. Also, if you like the show, become a patron & listen to the show from the beginning. You won’t regret it! The older shows are hilarious & it’s really cool seeing how the show & Chris himself grows. This show started my journey to libertarianism & has given me so many resources to grow my liberty mindset.

The only constant in life is change.

I very much liked the show when I first started listening almost a year ago. Less and less as times goes on. Now rebranding to ‘The Chris Spangle Show’ I find to be lazy and detracts from the collectivism of liberty.
