Episode 77 features We Are Libertarian's own Dear Leader, Chris Spangle. Chris runs and founded the WAL network that syndicates Boss Hog of Liberty. He stopped by to record the first episode in the brand new studio, made possible by our Patreon donors.
Chris and Dakota talk about the reason Hooters restraunt is not performing well with Millennials. Is it really because men our age dont like women the same as generations before us? Or are Millennial men more respectful of women because of the #MeToo era we live in? Dakota thinks that the buffalo shrimp is lacking. What do you think?
Jeremiah and Chris talk about the rise of podcasts and Chris's new show, The Chris Spangle Show. CSS is a daily, center of the spectum news show. This week, Chris may have accidentally been involved in a North Korean Propaganda photo shoot. The story is hilarious, listen as Chris recounts his moment of horror in Indianapolis.
Finally, we are joined by Chase Peyton and Kade Koger. Chase had the most offensive shirt printed that he could think of. If he thought our "baby boomer" fans disliked him before, just wait until you see this.

Episode 76 of Boss Hog of Liberty is now available!
Jeremiah Morrell and Dakota Davis host the final (we think) episode of BHOL from the Davis home studio. To help close it out, Chase Peyton and Audrey Jo Davis sit in studio.
Darrin Jacobs comes by to educate us on what a county planning commission actually does, and their role in creating ordinances. Darrin also serves as the President of the Spiceland town council. Dakota and Darrin nerd out over electric delivery methods.
Darrin shows off this green thumb and brought in some home grown ghost peppers. Against all medical advice, everyone in the studio ate a pepper…We will warn you…It is great video, but some less than ideal podcast audio. Make sure you watch the Facebook or YouTube video for the full experience.
Finally, the guys try to get through a conversation about the US Senate race…And then Jeremiah got the sad idea to eat another pepper. That pretty much ended things. This one is memorable.
