Primarily FTL and free minds radio, but others when i have free time.  I would listen more, but there isn't enough time in the day.

I'd listen to Lew more if I had more time. I can barely keep up even with FTL & LC!

You know, we all love FTL overall, but pound-for-pound (that is minute-for-minute) it's not that great, 'cause, c'mon, they have 18 hours a week to fill.  Other podcasts take their best ideas / interviews and condense them to an hour a week.  So if you're getting 100% of FTL and 0% of the other shows you're missing out.

What I would do if I had the time / authority is have the FTL podcast split by segment, and allow Web-site visitors to rank the segments in one click (like 1-5 stars), and possibly add tags / leave comments.  That could be easily done via a wiki plugin.  Then I'd write a query CGI script that outputs RSS, which would allow people to only download segments that fit certain tags, have a high-enough average rating, etc.  But I've pitched this idea so many times over the years I probably sound like a broken record...

It is a good idea.  Obviously ian is reluctant to take on more projects in addition to his current responsibilities.  i think thats the only reason it hasn't been utilized.

While I agree that the other shows do a great job of presenting a well prepared message, I think chopping up FTL is counter productive. How is Mark going to sell ads on individual hours of podcasts? If the child porn topic has heavy downloads, can he sell time to fun knobs? If Scott the biggot is a hot topic, can he sell to adameve? He needs a solid and predictable product to present. They present a 3 hour show, not 3 one hour shows.
Would you chop the music out of Dr. G's show? Would you cut interviews from antiwar?

Also, the sample needed to determine hot topics needs to be pretty big to be useful. You'd probably get 14 males 12-25, rating the show. That wouldn't be fair to Dennis and Tom calling to talk about local politics. The highest rated hour would be Whitney going topless.

There are certainly topics that bore me, but I have a button called FF. BTW, FTL is 12 hours/ week; they have commercial breaks.

Yes, actually, I personally would.  But I see your point.

LOL,  OK some of the music in Gard Dogg's show could go. But not bad song of the week, that was my favorite part.

I just figured out you can get FreeKeene.com audio as an RSS feed:

http://freekeene.com/category/audio/feed/

It includes calls to WKBK Talkback, and some other stuff.  (Big thanks to Ian for pointing this out to me.)  While technically it's not LRN, it's still another pro-liberty audio feed worth subscribing to.

I stand corrected yet again.

I don't listen to the LRN stream itself, I just get some of its shows' podcasts.  The shows in this poll are the ones that were listed on the LRN site in March.  (I can't edit the poll due to my account-cycling habits.)

Ay Libman.. you need to update the poll and add Wheels Off Liberty. That show is really pretty good, been listening to it this week.

I wish their show was produced more than once a week though.
