Industry Spotlight: The Polite Society Podcast

The Polite Society Podcast (formerly known as the Politics and Guns Podcast), covers the news and events that surround our basic liberties. Started by Paul and Susan Lathrop on February 3, 2012, it has been growing in listenership and scope ever since.

In Paul’s own words, “The show started out with me trying to do a 5 day-a-week podcast with each segment about 15 to 20 minutes long. I discussed news and events surrounding the Second Amendment. Well this quickly fell to a 3 times a week release of about a 45 minute podcast, then to a once a week show. We moved a bit away from the news segment for a while, but it is back with a vengeance! I do plan on continuing to bring you interviews with people that are working to help restore our rights.

Rob Morse, John Richardson, and Rachel Malone have also come aboard as contributors. And Susan has started handling some of the editing and producing duties.”

The podcast continues to roll along swimmingly!
