Op-Ed Placement: When You Have Nothing New To Contribute

There is nothing inherently unique about my show- I follow a regular format, I have guests on, and I cover politics, culture, and current events. I can name ten other shows that do the exact same thing. On top of that I can name a separate list of ten shows that are better- and worse.

Why do it? Why contribute to the already loud pile of people dying to speak into your ear? I’d like to think my show isn’t unique, I’d like to think it’s more than that, I’d like to think our content stands out and it’s in a category all on it’s own. I can’t name another libertarian themed show that talks about comic books as often it does about the unjust war on drugs. I can’t name another show that brings on Christian comedians, anarchist podcasters, Tea Partiers, filmmakers, candidates running for office, and just Joes off the street. At the Team Republic we love our guns and our cheesy sci-fi movies.
