July 13th, 2019 - 3:21pm by FTL_Admin in

Filtered Feeds Are Back :: ZCash Tip Jar :: Stossel & State of Anarchy Interviews :: App Status

July 8th, 2019 - 5:05pm by FTL_Admin in

Big update this week, I'll try to keep it brief. Last week our filtered podcast feeds like the FTL Episodes Only or Digest Only feeds went down, but now they are back! You can see our full list of feeds here .

By request, I've added a ZCash (ZEC) address to our Cryptocurrency Tip Jars page . Got a favorite crypto you want to see added? I'll consider it. Just email me about it or post in the cryptocurrency discussion room on our Discord server and tag me (@FTL_Ian).

This Saturday night's show featured an hour-long interview with John Stossel , one of the most influential libertarian voices of our time. If you missed that episode live, you can download it here .

LRN Apps Disappear from App Stores :: Call to Freedom Changes :: New FTL Affiliate in OK

June 30th, 2019 - 12:59pm by FTL_Admin in

Easy come, easy go. Some listeners noticed the LRN.FM & FTL listening app is no longer available on either iOS or Android. I have reached out to the app people to find out what happened, but it's ultimately not really a big loss. While some people liked the app, others reported it was buggy with memory leaks at one point. I'm guessing they just decided our small audience wasn't worth the trouble of updating the app anymore. The company that had made the app for us is the same one that handles our telephone listen lines and they had offered to do it for free, which allowed them to sell ads in-app.

If you still have the app, it still works. I'll update you via email if it gets relisted, but for now, if you need an app with which to listen to the FTL 24/7 streams or the LRN.FM streams, please try TuneIn. TuneIn is available in your App or Play store and has been around for a very long time. Both FTL and LRN.FM's streams are available there. Plus our streams will work on...

I'm on vacation - at Porcfest 2019!

June 22nd, 2019 - 1:52pm by FTL_Admin in

Amazingly, I'm back at the Porcupine Freedom Festival this year, after a four year absence. Since we are now broadcasting from Forkfest each Summer, I decided to take some days off and just attend Porcfest for the first time where I don't have to broadcast. I hope you've been enjoying this week's episodes in the meantime, headed up by Chris Rietmann, Mark, and Michael Hampton.

I'm posting an occasional photo to social media, if you care to follow them, here they are: Twitter , Mastodon .

Free Talk Live Named 26th Most Important Talk Show in America on TALKERS' "Heavy Hundred" 2019

June 8th, 2019 - 6:35pm by FTL_Admin in

Each year, TALKERS Magazine releases their " Heavy Hundred " list of the top 100 most important talk shows in America, according to the staff at TALKERS - the longtime, respected talk media industry publication. Since 2009, when we first appeared at the bottom of the list, we've moved up the chart, year-after-year. It's once again an honor, after eleven years on the list, to have acheived the rank of #26 for 2019. That moves us up from our #27 slot from 2018 and puts us at the very top of the second page . Thank you to Michael Harrison, Kevin Casey, and the rest of the crew at TALKERS for the recognition.

Of course, we couldn't have gotten to where we are without the support of our listeners who have contributed directly to our radio success by...
