The Show / The Free Talk Live YouTube Channel Thread
« on: September 05, 2012, 04:40:37 PM »
I have decided to create a new thread as the old one is redundant and in a hidden part of of the BBS. This is the old thread to see the history: http://bbs.freetalklive.com/discussion/freetalklive-on-youtube/

The Free Talk Live YouTube Channel Thread



If you have got a YouTube account please subscribe, if you haven't got a YouTube account then please create one and subscribe. While you're at it, you may also want to subscribe to the channels on the Featured list (right-hand side of the page) such as CopBlock and FreeKeene.

Something you can do which will make a huge difference is go to the list of videos at the follow link and go through them and liking them all: http://www.youtube.com/user/FreeTalkLiveRadio/videos?sort=da&flow=grid&view=0 If you think this is a pointless chore then you are mistaken. I cannot stress how helpful this is in increasing Free Talk Live's exposure through YouTube's algorithms. By liking all the videos, you will proving a big boost in getting Free Talk Live as a referal from other videos and to show up on searches. Please make the effort to spend a few minutes of your time to like them all because you will introduce so many people to Free Talk Live by doing so.

A quick technique is to right-click on each video and open all of them up in new tabs then once they are all open in new tabs, flick through each tab and click on 'like'. Make sure you hit the thumbs up button and not thumbs down, because just as lots of 'likes' improves visibility, having 'dislikes' makes the video more hidden.

Please also share them around, especially on twitter and facebook. It really helps. Adding them to your favourites and commenting on them would also be extremely helpful - especially adding them to your favourites.

Check out the playlists: http://www.youtube.com/user/FreeTalkLiveRadio/videos?view=1

There's more to come, this project is only in it's infancy and at the time of writing we have racked up 3.5k views, but the plan is to get upload tons of great material from the archives onto YouTube, which hopefully will raise FTL's profile and introduce loads of people to the show! Please support the effort - any suggestions, constructive criticism and other stuff is welcome. Just reply to this thread or PM if you wish.

Stay tuned to this thread for updates!

Thank you.

The Show / Paid App for FreeTalkLive/LRN
« on: August 19, 2012, 01:29:22 PM »
I have the LRN.FM app and it's great. Personally, I would happily pay $4.99 for a non-advert version of app. Can't be too hard to produce a version without adverts right?

Just throwing the idea out there. :)

LRN.FM - The Liberty Radio Network / Adam Kokesh

Is there plans for Adam Kokesh's AdamVsTheMan podcasts to be added to the podcast reel? They would make such a great addition.

General / FreeTalkLive on YouTube
« on: February 26, 2012, 01:28:38 PM »
I have searched for a FreeTalkLive YouTube channel but can't find one?

I really think FTL are missing a trick by not posting the archives and podcasts on YouTube, like Adam Kokesh, Stefan Molyneux, Peter Schiff and so many others do. There is a strong libertarian presence on YT and this is not being tapped into by FTL.

Moreover, people frequently share stuff on YT. People are much more likely to discover FTL if you had a presence on YouTube. Also look at forums, blogs and websites. It would be much easier for people to post FTL content if it were on YouTube as it's so simple to embed a YT video and people are familiar with it.

In addition, something could potentially go viral which would raise your reputation, exposure and would give you lots of publicity.

YouTube can also provide an income through ads, which would help the FTL coffers.

Another benefit is that you'll likely get more subscribers that way. Most people who don't know about RSS feeds and how they work would subscribe to you if you were on YT. This will help you grow the base.

It would be a relatively simple task, nothing compared to the immense work you do elsewhere with the show. You just need to make sure you use a lot of relevant tags. This way you are much more likely to get referrals from other videos. Video referrals = new views. New views = new customers, new listeners, FTL's profile is raised, more opportunities.

I can't think of any disadvantages, however there is a multitude of advantages. SOOOO much potential just waiting to be unlocked. I just can't think of why you'd want to neglect such a MASSIVE platform.

If you need any help/advice on how to go about setting up a YouTube channel and posting your archives/content.

The Show / Respond to Sam Seder's open challenge to libertarians
« on: February 17, 2012, 03:07:10 PM »
I'm (really) new to Free Talk Live, I've only been listening to your podcasts for about a week (it's way too late to listen live here in the UK). However, I'm already completely hooked. You really are something special and I plan to become an AMP in the not too distant future. Anyway...

I've been working through the archives at guests.freetalklive.com and one really stand-out item for me was the interview of the late Gene Amondson that was conducted quite a while back. It was a really entertaining debate, and I found the respectful manner in which is was held refreshing. Despite the fact that Gene stood for a policy which is against our philosophy there was no vitriol, no ad hominems and you let him get his side across without rude interruptions.

I also came across this absolute gem, it's such a thrilling exchange and completely gripped me:

Free Talk Live - Ian and Wayne take on a statist

I absolutely adore FTL's approach in welcoming guests/callers with a difference of opinion. I also like the fact. After all, the truth doesn't fear questioning. Welcoming opinions which challenge our views just shows integrity and class. It is the constructive attitude that is needed in the fight for liberty. I just wish I had discovered you guys earlier.

Sorry, I've digressed from the main point of this thread, I just wanted to express my gratitude to your hard work and admiration for your proffesionalism in my first ever post. I recently came across this video from a guy called Sam Seder.

An Open Challenge To Libertarians

I live in the UK so this may come across as "Well, duh" but this guy seems like a pretty big deal. He has a large following on twitter - over 20k followers - and his YouTube channel has thousands of subscribers. Going through his videos, he seems to have a real issue with libertarianism. The majority of his videos are anti-Ron Paul and anti-libertarianism.

Anyway, I think it would make a superb show for FTL to accept this guy's challenge and have him on FTL. I would absolutely love to see you guys take him on, it would make for enthralling listening as you skillfully deconstruct all of his misconceptions about the philosophy of liberty. He really needs educating. :)

Any thoughts?

EDIT: @SamSeder just tweeted me: "@Samuel_E_Amer i never turn down an invite and rarely wear pants in my videos". So looks like he'd be up for it. The ball's in FTL's court now.
