FTL & LRN.FM Updates

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...

Now you can AMP straight from your bank account via eCheck!

December 15th, 2018 - 2:31pm by FTL_Admin in

As you know, the AMP program was designed to allow you to directly support our efforts to Advertise, Market, and Promote Free Talk Live. AMP helps us get on more radio stations as well as bring new internet listeners onboard. For a long time, we've offered multiple ways to AMP, including credit card, PayPal, and Bitcoin (BTC). Now I'm happy to announce that we can do automatic deductions directly from your bank account! It's called eCheck and it actually costs us a lot less in fees than a credit card or PayPal transaction.

If you'd like to AMP the show with eCheck, please get in touch with me directly via email: ian at freetalklive.com and I'll get you set up.

If you'd like to AMP via credit card, PayPal, or Bitcoin (BTC), you can easily do that via http://amp.freetalklive.com

Mark to Emcee Cryptopulco @ Anarchapulco 2019

December 9th, 2018 - 2:58am by FTL_Admin in

Anarchapulco is just two months away and Mark and I have booked our flights to Acapulco. Are you going? The previous events were great and 2019 is shaping up to be tremendous with Ron Paul and multiple stages full of freedom-friendly speakers on various subjects. The speakers list has expanded significantly , and it was recently announced that Mark would be emceeing the Cryptopulco stage! Tickets are still available at Anarchapulco.com and code FTL will get you a discount.

In other news, our Twitch-only aftershows have been going strong, with episode four this week. Sadly, I thought I'd figured out a way for Twitch to easily store certain videos we've done in what they call "collections", however it looks like that doesn't preserve them at all as the first episode of "Freer Talk Live" has already dropped off the Twitch platform....

New Affiliate in NM :: Major Talk Shows Ending Nationwide :: More Twitch-ONLY Aftershows

December 2nd, 2018 - 4:38pm by FTL_Admin in

This week we welcomed our newest radio affiliate, KRSY-AM in Alamogordo, NM. They've added us to Saturdays to replace the now-ended Freedom Feens radio show. You can see our over 190 affiliates here . While I am sad to see the Freedom Feens go, as they were the only other libertarian nationally syndicated talk show in the United States, there is some potential good news with other radio shows ending at the end of 2018. Laura Ingraham is ending her radio show, Michael Savage is cutting his back to an hour a day live, and Michael Medved and Phil Valentine are no longer going to be in syndication. If you happen to know that one or more of those shows are heard on your local talk station(s), now is the time to reach out to the program director there and tell the PD you want to hear Free Talk Live!

In other affiliate news, longtime Saturday live affiliate WNIS-AM in Norfolk, VA has...

Did you miss our Twitch-only aftershow last week?

November 25th, 2018 - 4:04pm by FTL_Admin in

On Tuesday we did our first uncensored aftershow exclusively on the Twitch video streaming platform and it went well. Mark and Vincent went head-to-head on Christianity and somehow we got onto some graphic sexual topics that could never be discussed on the radio. If you missed it, the archive is available to watch , in HD, on Twitch. Plus, we're doing another one this Tuesday evening , so join us at 10pm Eastern right after the radio show ends for the second episode of Freer Talk Live. There is a Twitch.tv app if you prefer to listen on your smartphone.

Besides the new "Freer Talk Live" aftershow, the LRN.FM Twitch channel also streams live video of our other great Keene-studio based shows like Call to Freedom and Questioning Authority. Also there...

FTL's First Twitch-Only Aftershow - This Tuesday at 10pm Eastern

November 18th, 2018 - 12:38pm by FTL_Admin in

It's been a while since we've done an aftershow and I thought it might be fun to do a Twitch-only aftershow of Free Talk Live where we go uncensored and video-streaming only - open lines, as always. So coming up Tuesday November 20th after our live radio show ends at 10pm Eastern, we'll restart our video stream and go live on Twitch, but *not* on LRN.FM or any other platform, so if you want to watch or listen, you'll need to do it via Twitch . If you're already following the LRN.FM Twitch channel, thank you! If not, you can get ready by visiting http://twitch.lrn.fm and creating your Twitch account, then following our channel. Once you've done that, you can visit the upcoming event entry I made and have Twitch...
