Wrapping up Anarchapulco 2019!

February 17th, 2019 - 8:54pm by FTL_Admin in

Once again, Mark and I were honored to be invited to broadcast from the must-attend liberty event of the year, Anarchapulco 2019. It was my third year attending and it's been great to help and watch the event grow. Big thanks to the bunch of Free Talk Live listeners that we met who traveled here from all over!

In case you missed it, I wrote a detailed blog about Anarchapulco and Ron Paul's inspiring appearance here this weekend . Please do share!

This year's Anarchapulco was a blast and even bigger than last year. The vibe and people were great. The Anarchapulco team have put together the event that pulls in attendees ranging from suits to hippies. It's now multiple stages and has taken over the...

We're live from Acapulco for a week!

February 9th, 2019 - 7:00pm by FTL_Admin in

Mark and his family are renting a nice place in Acapulco for the month and encouraged me to come out for longer than just the Anarchapulco conference coming up next week. They are renting a six bedroom, five bath place with this view for $1,100 a month (plus the power bill and any services like cleaning lady). Pretty sweet deal. Tune in live via our audio streams only as we don't have video streaming here. We are still able to take Discord calls along with regular calls.

"Punk Rock Libertarians", "Alex Merced Cast", and "Part of the Problem" Join LRN.FM

January 26th, 2019 - 12:17pm by FTL_Admin in

This week, LRN.FM welcomed multiple shows to the podcast lineup - Punk Rock Libertarians , The Alex Merced Cast , and Part of the Problem . You can get full show details on our program guide here .

Sadly, due to major life changes since he recently fell in love , Darryl W Perry of FPP Radio News has decided to put his newscast on hiatus. As soon as he's back at it, his content will return to the air at LRN.FM (and the FTL streams). I wish Darryl the best and thank him for his dedicated service to liberty, having produced a newscast seven-days-a-week for several years virtually without interruption. It was a monumental task.

Darryl W Perry Resigns from Free Talk Live Management Role

January 22nd, 2019 - 3:26pm by FTL_Admin in

Over the years, it’s been a pleasure to see Darryl W Perry be the most dynamic of our co-hosts. On his personal journey during his time at Free Talk Live he began working out and running regularly, shedding over 150 pounds and completely changing his physical appearance. Previously sedentary, Darryl is now a marathon runner who has competed recently in the New York City Marathon among many others.

He also recently fell in love and as sometimes happens as a result, life has called him in a new direction. Today, with heavy hearts, we announce Darryl’s resignation from his role as a managing partner of Free Talk Live. Since he’s only resigned from managerial duties, Darryl may still be heard as a co-host of FTL, but he’s no longer tied down to any particular broadcast schedule.

We understand that you’ll still be able to hear Darryl on his daily newscast, “FPP Radio News” and his longform weekly podcast, “Peace, Love, Liberty Radio”, both are available to download at...

Multiple stations expand FTL to weeknights! :: Mark's Dye Job

January 12th, 2019 - 2:07pm by FTL_Admin in

It's been a record-setting week for Free Talk Live in the area of existing affiliates expanding their carriage of our show. We had several stations expand this week to carry our weekday show including WGOW-FM in Chattanooga, TN, KHMO-AM in Hannibal, MO, KBKW-AM/FM/HD4 in Aberdeen, WA, and WTTB-AM/FM in Vero Beach, FL! The all-of-a-sudden changes came after our competitor, the awful Michael Savage, dropped his show from two hours live per day to one.

Happy New Year - One Year on Twitch and Discord!

January 6th, 2019 - 2:00am by FTL_Admin in

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...
