The Bigger Picture with Timothy Spangler

The Bigger Picture focuses on the humorous and absurd side of international affairs and global events. Host Timothy Spangler is joined each week in the studio by Phillip Sparks, musical afficiando and conscious of the African American community, and David Fisher, classically-trained actor and bon vivant. Your unique opinions and perspectives matter, so working the phone lines is Lewis, our ideological wildcard. Regular contributors to the show include Martin Hanlin, Charlie Wolf and David Yontz. Their segments showcase stories that are too important to be overlooked by an insular American media. We're here to help you make sense of the world. We're here to show you The Bigger Picture.
