“An Open Letter to My Former Self”
by We Are Libertarians

Sorry, listening to the audio on this website requires Flash support in your browser. You can try playing the MP3 file directly by clicking here.

This was a project I did for a Carmel High School radio station called WHJE. One of the students saw me speak in that previous episode about my career and asked me to write and record this for a high school audience. It is a letter to my high school self.

“In this open letter produced by Katie Piedra, podcast creator and Bob and Tom Show website director Chris Spangle walks you through his own story.

But that’s not it. In this open letter, there is passion. There are stories. There is self-love. There are lessons.

There is a life for you to reclaim.
