I had the pleasure of being on the freedom-loving video/podcast “Tooele Happy Hour” from Tooele, UT with hosts Jared and David for over two hours! We discussed The Crypto Six and talked a lot about the Free State Project migration of libertarians to New Hampshire:
This week we welcome KWBG-AM/FM in Boone, IA to our live weeknight show! Plus, I want to belatedly welcome some new stations that joined us in 2021 but due to us being a little distracted by the FBI raid on our studios, we didn’t properly acknowledge at the time, including WJFN-AM/FM in Richmond, VA, WMLB-AM in Atlanta, GA, and KLIN-AM/FM in Lincoln, NE.
As always, you can find details on our over 190 radio affiliates here.
Earlier this Fall we blew up the old website, and replaced it with this one, which is much simpler. Some features are missing, and at some point we hope to add some back in, like full access to our extensive archives. However, for now we’re keeping-it-simple. You can easily access recent shows with the archive widget on the sidebar or on the archives page and of course you can still subscribe to our podcast feeds to automatically receive each new episode as it comes out.
However, when we launched this new site, the live audio stream playback widget was not working properly. I’m happy to say that now the player is working! You’ll now find it on the live page and in the sidebar. It looks like this:
Thanks also to our 60 AMPS that have joined our new Patreon to help us Advertise, Market, Promote, and Support Free Talk Live.

A couple of weeks ago a film crew from France came to visit the Free Talk Live studio in the Crypto Mecca of Keene and produce a short documentary about The Crypto Six. Here’s the excellent ten-minute video they made, featuring Free Talk Live hosts Ian, Nobody, and Aria DiMezzo:
Free Talk Live host Ian Freeman appeared this morning on “Path to State Sovereignty” on KTALK 1640 in Salt Lake City, UT with host Lowell Nelson to discuss the New Hampshire constitutional amendment to secede from the United States and the attack on the Crypto Six.
If you missed it live last week, be sure to watch the brutal results of the Carolina Reaper Challenge as Aria and Conan eat the world’s hottest pepper on our internet-only aftershow, “Freer Talk Live”:
We recently blew up the old FTL website and along with that went the old AMP program, so we’re replacing that old system with our new AMPS Patreon! Just like before, you can contribute as little as $5 a month via Paypal or credit/debit card to help Free Talk Live spread the ideas of liberty on the radio – and get some cool perks.

Free Talk Live’s family of broadcast stations nationwide now expands to 186 with the addition of Townsquare Media stations Newstalk 98.3 FM and 1290 AM KGVO in Missoula, MT and 1240 AM KLYQ in Hamilton, MT to our live Sunday night edition.
You can see details on the new stations and our full list of 186 radio affiliates here.
I’ve been wanting to blow up the old freetalklive.com website for years, so I finally did it. It was a nice looking site, but we’d had it in place for about a decade, plus the guys who programmed it retired a few years back, so it was starting to fall into disrepair.
It was run on a system called Drupal which has always been a huge pain to deal with and is very expensive to develop. It would have cost tens of thousands just to fix the issues present, and probably more thousands to migrate the site to the next version of Drupal, so I finally decided to throw it away and replace it with WordPress, a system with which I have a lot more experience.
Not all the content from the old Drupal site has been migrated over yet, like the Guests page, but this new site is complete enough to pull the switch.
On the old site, the archives had recently broken. You can now easily find recent show archives in the right sidebar of this new site, or via the Listen menu at the top for our MP3 archives. You can also listen live via various MP3 streaming options, and watch via our studio cams.
More changes are coming to our archives as well as the AMP program, so stay tuned for announcements.
You can find links to our social options like the Matrix chat rooms, and our social media Mastodon in the “Social” menu up top, among other options, so please explore the menus. If you’re looking to submit show topic suggestions, please use the #news-show-prep room on our Matrix server. Thanks and welcome to the new site.
