Snowdog2012 has uploaded some really great videos. :) Check them out!

I have just finished making a background for the channel on Photoshop:


Any feedback is welcome.

BitInstant made a long-term advertising commitment to FTL. I wanted to see their new offices. They wanted to cover 2 hotel rooms, but we would only let them buy one. I thought it would make for a good show. I wouldn't necessarily do this for another advertiser, but I thought it would be good programming and I think it was.

It did make for a good show, I really enjoyed that episode :)

Adam Kokesh is spot on though.

C'mon talkativeshut, you gotta admit that newspapers are more redundant nowadays to a lot of people. I mean, some people still use them, but their numbers are dwindling.

The Show / Re: I liked the Edginton Post tacked on the end of the podcast

It's a long show. It's possible to miss that the show ended and an EP has started. I've spent 15 minutes before not realizing I was listening to an ad. Not saying they're all ads, but some are just really long ads. Then again, maybe tacking an ad to the end of the podcast that tricks a lot of people into thinking they're still listening to the show is pretty brilliant and deserves extra kudos.

The one about the CCrane Headphones was such an advert :D That didn't stop me listening the entire interview though lol, although I doubt there is any cans on the market that could beat the value for money of my Sony MDR-XB700 (perhaps maybe V-Moda Crossfade LP?).

Anyway, I digress, the best Edgington Post episode was the one where Mark debated that guy who wouldn't shut up about the immorality of voting. Mark was completely right on this issue in my view, but his opponent wouldn't give up.

New video up, Walter Block:

Dr Walter Block defends the undefendables on Free Talk Live!

At the moment I'm using Windows Live Movie Maker, which doesn't allow audio editing so ignore the first few seconds. I really am contemplating getting video editing software, probably Sony Vegas but I dunno.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy listening to the interview and don't forget to like, comment and subscribe!

The Walter Block interview is ready to be uploaded, but I'll upload it later to hit better traffic in the ET and CT time zones. I'm starting University next week so am currently getting stuff ready to move in. Therefore, the rate of uploads may slow down for a short while (especially for threshers week) but as soon as things have settled down I'll pick up from where I left off - my aim is to have one interview up every three days or so.

Snowdog2012 (who established the channel in the first place) will have more time to upload other content after September, so hopefully we'll have even more great stuff going up then.

Any feedback, suggestions or help is always very welcome.

New one up, all Ron Paul videos seem to do pretty well so I'm optimistic that this video will get hundreds of views. Please help it on its way by liking and sharing!

Ron Paul speaks about his Audit the Fed bill and answers callers' questions on Free Talk Live

If only elections were decided by YouTube popularity, Ron Paul would have walked it. :lol:

Just added some info to the OP:

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 botton and not thumbs down, because just as lots of 'likes' improves visibility, having 'dislikes' makes the video more hidden.

 The reason I have added this info/plea is because I have been through YouTube analytics, and on the 29th August, some statist troll went through and disliked 29 videos. These were the only dislikes the channel had ever had and they all came all at once. I would be more worried if the dislikes were coming from a large range of people across the demographics, as it's just one guy who's cleary either a butthurt statist or some idiot troll with massive grudge it's not at all indicative of how the channel is being received. However, looking at YouTube analytics, after all those dislikes the amount of referrals the channel got plummeted. Only 12% of the traffic for the channel comes from outside of YouTube. Of the total amount views from all videos, 88% come from referrals within YouTube. A video referal is people click on one of the videos from a YouTube search, the related videos column, and suggested videos on the homepage. A large channel can cope with trolls disliking a bunch of videos, because they have tides of non-trolls liking them thus the trolls only have a negligible effect.

However, for a new channel - like FreeTalkLiveRadio - the impact is much more annoying. The viewing figures for the channel took a major knock - a direct result of less referrals due to the dislikes meaning we were lower placed on YouTube's alogorithms, especially because a sizeable chunk of those 29 videos had no likes, meaning that they were 100% disliked. I have just been through every single video that FreeTalkLiveRadio has uploaded with three accounts (Rattlesnakemeuk [my personal one], LRNFM [earmarked for an idea proposed in the original thread] and the FreeTalkLiveRadio channel itself) so hopefully some of the damage will have been undone but there's still so much more to do.

When the amount of 'likes' recieved increases, there is a clear rise in amount of referrals and views. YouTube analytics doesn't provide any figures but it is the correlation is such an overwhelming positive one. If just ten people go through the videos and like them all (it's simple to sign up to YouTube if you already haven't got an account) then that would be a total nearly 500 likes for the channel and a ratio of 13-15 likes to 1 is pretty neat. :)

Therefore, if you want to help FreeTalkLiveRadio get off the ground then probably the most helpful thing you can do (at no personal cost) is spend a few minutes of your time going through the videos and liking them. Thank you so much. :)

The Lew Rockwell interview is just 'rendering' now, should be ready in the next hour. Sorry about the delay,  I was a bit of a perfectionist with the next video and played around a little too much on PhotoShop making sure all the graphics were clean cut, nicely aligned and resized nicely. :D

EDIT: And it's up!

Lew Rockwell joins Free Talk Live for an in-studio interview on advancing liberty
