Orphanage Fundraiser Success! :: BTC/BCH/DASH/Alts Tip Jars Updated!

December 9th, 2017 - 10:52am by FTL_Admin in

This week we announced 4X matching on final contributions to finish up the orphanage in Uganda and in less than 24 hours we raised the approximately $2,000 we needed and blew past that goal by over $1,200! Thank you to the donors and to our matching contributors, Cell 411 , Bitcoin.com , and Shire Free Church .

Also, I've updated our cryptocurrency tip jar addresses. The old addresses are still good, but these new addresses go to a more secure storage. We're accepting Bitcoin Core (BTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), DASH, and dozens of Altcoins via Shapeshift. Check out the new addresses on the Tip Jar page here and thank you for supporting our mission to spread the ideas of liberty, cryptocurrency, and peace.


Lots of people thanking us for turning them on to bitcoin!

December 2nd, 2017 - 4:40pm by FTL_Admin in

We just wrapped up the first-ever NH Blockchain conference in Portsmouth. It was a great first-year event with over 200 attending - a smashing success! If you missed it, we'll hope to see you there again next year. FTL host Chris Rietmann gave an excellent presentation and Darryl W Perry was on a panel discussion about the future of crytpocurrency. There was a videographer present, so once the videos are available to view online, we'll let you know.

Also we've had more than a few people online and in real life thank us for talking about Bitcoin way back in the day - apparently they got some and have become quite wealthy. If you've got a bunch of bitcoin burning a hole in your wallet and want to do something with it, our bitcoin donation page is here .

Of course, you can also use bitcoin to AMP the show here .

Thanks for listening and...

Lots of FTL media appearances

November 18th, 2017 - 1:45pm by FTL_Admin in

In case you missed it, within the last week I had two mainstream media appearances here in NH , one of which mentions Free Talk Live. Plus, Dave Ridley posted a video lauding Free Talk Live for its accuracy .

Plus our co-host Will Coley has made mainstream media in NH with the potential attack against him and his soon-to-open mosque from the City of Keene gang .

Finally, it's not too late for you to get $2 worth of free Bitcoin Cash by posting to this thread on the new FTL forum .

Free Bitcoin Cash Giveaway!

November 11th, 2017 - 11:51pm by FTL_Admin in

If you heard the interview with Roger Ver on Friday night's show , you already know about the free Bitcoin Cash giveaway! If you're one of the first 100 people to post your BCH wallet address in this thread on the Free Talk Live forum , you'll get $2 in BCH - $1 from me and $1 from Roger. If you don't have a Bitcoin Cash compatible wallet, you can try Bitcoin.com's wallet . If you have Android, Coinomi is a multi-crypto wallet that supports Bitcoin Cash.

As always, thank you for supporting Free Talk Live by sharing your favorite episodes on social media, listening, and sending some funds our way via the FTL AMP program . Ian

Shrine of Chronic Callers :: TX BTC Conf Media Panel Video

November 4th, 2017 - 4:58pm by FTL_Admin in

This week one of our AMPlifiers, Leah, created the first entry in the new "Shrine of Chronic Callers" - her rendition of Ricky from PA. Since then more have been posted to the thread, which is available over on the new Free Talk Live forum here . The FTL forum (and the other areas of the larger Shire Forum that hosts the FTL forum) have really taken off in recent weeks. If you haven't dropped in to check it out, you should. If you want to participate, just register and post the required introduction thread and you'll be granted full forum access upon review by the mods (me and Melanie).

Amazon Breaks Up With FTL!

October 16th, 2017 - 3:38am by FTL_Admin in

Amazon apparently didn't like us telling you that shopping through the links at shop.freetalklive.com helped Free Talk Live, so last week they dumped us. Seems like a pretty lame excuse to end an agreement that had lasted for more than a decade, but that's what happened! (To be clear, we've only been dumped by Amazon US. The affiliate links for the UK and Canada Amazons are still working.)

If you want to do online shopping with Free Talk Live, go ahead and bookmark our Walmart link: walmart.freetalklive.com

Also, you can still use cryptocurrency like bitcoin to get deep discounts on everything you buy at Amazon and a small part of your purchases at SaveatPurse.com do benefit FTL.

So, even without Amazon US, there are still plenty of ways for you to buy and benefit Free Talk Live. Thanks for helping us while helping yourself to the...
