"Freer Talk Live" is the name for our aftershow that we perform exclusively on our video streaming platforms, DLive and Twitch . Though Freer Talk Live episodes can happen anytime we feel like doing it, Jay Noone, Silver Dave, and Nobody have consistently been doing weekly episodes on Wednesdays for the last couple of months.

Over the last several days the video and story about Keene High’s “school resource officer” Joshua English attacking and tackling a student for allegedly vaping in the school’s bathroom, has gone viral. However, there’s more to the story than cop-attacks-teen, though this incident alone is bad enough. In case you haven’t heard about this incident, according to other students the young man who was viciously attacked by English was vaping in the bathroom and English confronted him. The student heroically refused to identify himself to the armed, intimidating, uniformed man and walked out of the bathroom. Moments later, English bursted out of the bathroom and tackled the peaceful student, subduing him with a shocking level of force.
Thankfully, another brave student pulled out their phone upon hearing a commotion from inside the bathroom and captured the entire tackling...
Unfortunately for the last couple of weeks our Soundcloud account has been serving up incorrect filenames when trying to directly download from FreeTalkLive.com. Soundcloud has yet to fix this issue and I haven't decided how much longer I want to wait for it. If you are a direct downloader, you can temporarily fix the problem by renaming the generic filename of "Soundcloud Download" to have a .mp3 after it. Our file naming system is FTLYYYY-MM-DD.mp3, but you can name the files whatever you want, so long as it ends in .mp3, it should play back just fine on your preferred listening device.
I'm told that the filename issue is not affecting our podcast listeners. If you would like to move from direct downloads to automatic podcast downloads, please subscribe to our podcast.

Plus, over the last couple of weeks leading up to the Keene mayoral primary election – where Nobody received 2% of the vote – he received coverage in a variety of places, including overseas. Here’s a rundown of some of the media we spotted:
During last night's Freer Talk Live featuring me, Nobody, and Captain Kickass, raving lunatic James Wittekind called in and we gave him his own show. If you love James' drunken rants, you'll find 20+ minutes of him in the latest episode of Freer Talk Live . Plus, before he calls in, we talk about the latest with Facebook's Libra and more! It was a great show.
Today, Tuesday October 8th, is the Keene municipal primary. As you already know, the ballot is rife with candidates who want to make the expensive Keene city government even bigger and more invasive. However, there are a few candidates who want to reduce the government in Keene. Here are my recommendations for the 2019 Keene primary ballot:
Mayor- “Nobody” Yes, Nobody is actually going to be on your ballot!
City Council – At Large: John Theriault Matthew “Matt” Roach Ian Freeman
I don't want to break the news just yet, but Nobody just did a photo shoot for a major newspaper.
