Bob Mayne & Paul Lathrop Launch Self Defense Radio Network

Bob Mayne says:

Paul Lathrop and I put our heads together and came up with Self Defense Radio Network. It’s a partnership and Paul and Susan and myself have formed. Our goal is to appeal to a wide range of podcasts. Not just firearms but any podcast related to human self defense. Martial arts and prepping podcast will be welcome. There will NOT be a charge to be a member of our network. Our goal is to sell advertising and network members will participate in a significant portion of the ad revenue each month. Another major benefit is that you will grow your podcast audience in a big way. Website launch will be coming soon and we hope to have podcasts join soon. The first 2 podcasts will be the Polite Society Podcast and the Handgun World Podcast. Who’s in?
