Last year in January after Youtube temp-banned the LRN.FM streaming channel over some unexplained violation of their "community standards", we branched out in a different direction. We launched our video streaming on Twitch - the video game streaming platform. It has turned out to be a great platform for live video and allowed us to bring Call to Freedom and Questioning Authority - the other two Keene-based shows on LRN.FM - into the channel. One year later the LRN.FM Twitch channel now has over 600 followers and approximately 60 subscribers! To show our appreciation and to help grow our presence on the platform, we launched our Twitch-only aftershows which have been a lot of fun and hopefully have brought us new viewers from the general Twitch audience, which will introduce some of them to the ideas of liberty.
In addition to Twitch, we also launched the LRN.FM Discord server, which quickly replaced the old IRC chat room with a whole server of different chat rooms! One year later, it's going strong with well over 500 active users in the last 30 days including regular participation from several LRN.FM and FTL hosts. If you haven't dropped in to try it out, you should!
Happy New Year!
