LRN's Discord Called "The largest active libertarian community on all of Discord"

August 10th, 2019 - 1:19pm by FTL_Admin in

We just got major props from a newer user on our Discord server , Jaws, who said, "On a side note, I'm mega happy about this server. This is the largest active libertarian community on all of discord." If you haven't logged in to see what he's so excited about, please take a moment to join the conversation there. There are a couple of hoops to jump through, but it's not complicated. Here's how: 1. Download the Discord app. 2. Create an account and login. 3. Load this link in your web browser and you'll be loaded into our Discord server: http://discord.lrn.fm Easy!

Also, I just posted the video of Mark's speech at Porcfest where he gets called out on his BS by Free State Project founder Jason Sorens. You can watch it in full here .

Finally, please...

Now Accepting MONERO Donations!

August 3rd, 2019 - 6:15pm by FTL_Admin in

Free Talk Live is now accepting contributions in Monero , the world's premiere privacy coin. There are some great privacy coins out there including ZCash (ZEC) and Horizen (ZEN), but so far Monero has been chosen as the current privacy coin preference by the DarkNet markets globally. Back when Bitcoin (BTC) came out, its adoption by the world's first DarkNet market, " Silk Road " arguably was a key factor to help propel Bitcoin in its early years. The fact that DarkNet markets are embracing Monero may also portend a bright future for the unique coin. Of course, never invest what you can't afford to lose. If you don't have a Monero wallet yet, you can easily add it to your Edge Wallet .

You'll find the QR codes and wallet addresses for Monero as well as several other cryptos on our Crypto Tip Jar page .

Hello from Vegas!

July 22nd, 2019 - 8:31pm by FTL_Admin in

We had so much content between Freedom Fest and Anarchovegas that we've loaded up two extra full shows of interviews. It's been a long week here in Vegas but we did get to do a couple of fun things ourside the convention. Mark did an indoor skydive today and last night we went to see Penn and Teller perform at the Rio. We're back live in-studio on Wednesday this week, so our Twitch and DLive streams will return at that time. Meanwhile, if you haven't followed us on DLive, please do that at http://DLive.lrn.fm - you'll help us reach our goal of 1,000 followes there - thank you!

Also, if you haven't AMPed the show yet, please do that at http://amp.freetalklive.com. Your $5 (or BTC) per month will help us reach new radio stations with the ideas of liberty, peace, and cryptocurrency.

It's going to be a brutal flight back - we were originally supposed to leave at 9pm and get to Boston at 5am...

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).

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 .

Don't forget to follow FTL on social media here: Twitter , Mastodon , Telegram . and LRN,FM: Twitter , Mastodon ,...

We're at Forkfest 2019! + Johnny Rocket Interview

June 15th, 2019 - 7:26am by FTL_Admin in

It's happening again! Forkfest 2019 has begun and we're almost half way through. I posted an update early this morning to the Forkfest website , if you care to read it. As with previous years, we're broadcasting every day from the LRN.FM tent, so come visit us on RV site 59.

Plus, if you missed my recent interview on "Blast Off! with Johnny Rocket", about how-to do pirate radio, you can listen here .

Finally, this week we got two new AMPlifiers and are just two more away from reaching 200 individuals who are supporting what we do here at Free Talk Live for as little as $5 per month. You'll get cool perks if you join and help us spread the ideas of liberty to more radio stations around the country. Can you help? Please join AMP at http://amp....

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...
