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.
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 .
Check Tuesday's show for a long discussion about the Free Talk Live official gear now available through Johnson's new website, LibertyMinded.com . If you missed out on our official years ago, they are finally back! Place your order in time for the holidays. Yes, the store accepts cryptocurrency!

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).
Plus, we're back from the Texas Bitcoin Conference , which was a great event, as usual! If you missed it, good news - every speech and panel discussion is on...
Hello from the third Texas Bitcoin Conference ! More interesting and informative interviews coming up on tonight's radio show, then throughout the week we'll include even more interviews as aftershows on the podcast! As always, you can listen live or whenever you want at FreeTalkLive.com

Also, last week something went wrong with our listen-on-demand phone line, so if you had that stored in your phone, please...
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.)
FTL welcomes new radio affiliates WTNW-AM 820 in Jasper, TN and WOKR-AM 1310 in Canandaigua, NY. You can see our full list of stations here and if you'd like to contact your local talk station(s) to request Free Talk Live, here's how .
