Polite Society Podcast with Paul & Susan Lathrop
On February 3, 2012 Paul & Susan started the Politics and Guns podcast. Out of a need to speak about our government eroding our human right of self-defense. Politics and Guns was the result. In January of 2014 they decided that a change was in order for the title of the show, and so re-titled the show “The Polite Society Podcast”.
The show started out as a 5 day-a-week podcast with each segment about 15 to 20 minutes long, discussing news and events surrounding the Second Amendment. Now with co-hosts and contributors Rob Morse, John Richardson, and Rachel Malone it is a weekly Podcast that includes news, politics, self-defense stories and interesting interviews with people from all segments of the Firearms Industry!
