BNS 80: From Leftist to Libertarian with Steffi Cole

I dare say that most of us know folks within the libertarian movement who came from the more conservative side of things, heck, with yours truly being one of them. But those who ventured to libertarianism from the left are much fewer in our ranks, despite them sharing our many of our values.

Today’s guest is one of those unicorns who went from leftist to libertarian, and I wanted to have her on my show to discuss her conversion as she started going down the libertarian rabbit hole; the one and only Steffi Cole.

Listen as Seffi talks about her path to libertarianism from the left, her involvement in libertarian politics and political campaigns (like Austin Petersen’s US Senate campaign), and more!

Bio: Steffi was born and raised in Michigan and “has been a passionate, hardworking nerd ever since she was little”. After learning about economics and watching lots of videos about government in 2009, she found herself in the Tea Party movement. She became a huge fan of Ron Paul during his 2012 Presidential campaign. In 2017-2018, she volunteered doing social media, graphic design, and volunteer training for the Austin Petersen for US Senate campaign. She is currently a YouTuber, Brand Ambassador for 1776 United, and liberty promoter for products, people, and ideas. She is on a journey to learn as much as she can about history, government, and the Constitution!

BNS 79: Libertarian Party Presidential Candidate Arvin Vohra on Past Controversies, Messaging, and Recruitment

Welcome back, folks! For those of you new listeners joining us, thanks for taking some time to listen to today’s episode of The Brian Nichols Show!

Today’s episode sticks true to one of the main principles we maintain here at The Brian Nichols Show- talking to people we don’t necessarily see eye-to-eye with and trying to find areas of understanding or agreement. I’ve been very vocal in my opposition to the tactics that today’s guest, Arvin Vohra, utilized during his tenure as vice-chair of the Libertarian Party.

I even went as far to spend an entire episode tackling each of his controversial statements and gave my best argument as to why I believe that hyperbolic and controversial marketing is not helpful in recruiting more people to the Libertarian Party and the greater liberty movement.

With that being said, Arvin came on the show to not only promote his candidacy (Arvin is running to be the Libertarian Party candidate for the 2020 POTUS election), but to answer some of the tough questions I had in regards to his past controversial statements. Listen as Arvin discusses his candidacy, his approach to marketing liberty, and his vision for the libertarian movement.
