Brian is the host of The Brian Nichols Show, which is part of the We Are Libertarians Network. He obtained his bachelor's degree in political science with a concentration in American government and associate degree in business administration with a concentration in marketing and management and has served on multiple political campaigns, including local, state, and federal campaigns. He also co-authored a published academic paper that explored the concept of a professional legislature that focused on the application of "professional legislatures" to county legislative bodies in New York State. He currently serves as an associate editor for The Libertarian Republic and chapter leader for AFF-Philadelphia. When not taking part in political discourse, Brian enjoys watching the Dallas Cowboys, reruns of The Office on Netflix, and going to the gym. He writes, "AFF has the ability to make the ideas of economic and personal freedom real. Instead of simply talking about these issues, AFF allows us to relate the issues to everyday situations and real people. Each community has their own respective issues and challenges, and AFF allows us to tackle these issues through the lens of limited government and liberty."
