The 6.5 Questions
1. How long have you been podcasting?
We have been podcasting since early January 2005. However, we've been posting free, commercial-free archives of our show online since day one.
2. How many shows have you done?
We've done well over 450 shows since November of 2002.
3. How has your quality/performance changed since your first show?
In our first show we were in a "professional" radio studio and now we produce the show from my home studio. Quality has increased because I'm 100% in control of my audio now. There's no corporate engineer setting dials and no one coming in while I'm away to screw up the studio settings.
4. What podcasts do you listen to and which are your favorites?
I'll have to list the podcasts I've listened to and enjoyed, as I rarely have free time that is not being spent on some show related activity. So here they are: Red Bar Radio, Vox Monitor, Liberty Dollar, and Barefoot Radio.
5. Tell us about your show and who should be listening to it?
Hopefully people of all political persuasions will find Free Talk Live interesting or outrageous, but I'm specifically looking for people who want more Liberty in their lives. People that think government is big and incompetent. Free Talk Live is more than just a talk show. It's a key element in a much larger political movement. The Liberty movement is happening, and we are a critical part of getting the message of Liberty in front of Americans, and the rest of the World.
6. What is your background (especially if relevant to your podcast)?
I originally wanted to be a pirate broadcaster, and decided I might as well get some experience in the radio industry prior to risking a no-knock 6 AM raid by the FCC. I started in rock radio, was sickened by that immediately, and fell in love with Talk. One year after the rock station changed format to FM Talk, FTL was born. Appealing to Clear Channel's greed, we offered to do the show for free, just to get a foot in the door. The FM Talker switched back to music after 6 months, so we went internet-only for a while. We then started buying airtime on a local AM station. We bailed out from there after the Janet Jackson incident stirred up stricter on-air rules at the station, and went back to internet-only shows. We landed at another local AM and then got our syndication deal. A few months into that, a radio GM named David Wang suggested I look into Podcasting...
6.5 Is there anything else your listeners should know about you, your show, etc?
Yes. If you enjoy the show, please share it. Not only via .mp3 files, but especially to the radio listening world. Not everyone has access to the internet. Of those that do, only a percentage spend a decent amount of time online. Some of us tend to forget about those extra-internet people. They need the pro-Liberty message as much as every Podcast listener. Do your fellow man a favor, and call your local talk stations (Find them at http://radio-locator.com ) and tell them you want to hear Free Talk Live. Even if you don't listen to the radio, think about those who do. Help us set this country free again.
