How did you find out about Free Talk Live?
« on: October 21, 2006, 07:48:54 PM »

There was another poll floating around asking how people currently and primarily listen to the show... This isn't all that helpful considering it was almost 100% online (which we already knew)

What really would be more interesting and helpful, is if you could tell us how you FOUND the show.

I heard about Free Talk Live originally through one of the podcast sites - think it was Podcast Alley. (That's not why I'm listening today.)
Listened a couple of times, liked parts of the show, but was overwhelmed by the really strong conspiracy whacko content of the episodes. Dropped FTL from my RSS feeds.

A couple of months later, my husband mentioned a show he had started listening to, and thought I would like. Rolled my eyes when he gave the name, and then agreed to give it another listen. This time, I tried listening to slightly longer portions of the show, skipping the whacko calls, and gave it a couple of weeks. The parts of the show I liked far outweighed the segments I skipped this time. Now I'm hooked.

I found out about them on the Free State Project website and saw that it was libertarian talk show and I thought to myself "wow ANOTHER libertarian talk show besides Mr. Browne's!, I'll have to check it out sometime." Eventually I clicked on their link on the FSP site and listened to a live show one night and have been hooked ever since.

I was pissed off one day about current issue regarding our beloved president. I keyworded "Libertarian forums" on google. This one made me laugh and seemed to be cutting edge w/ actions. I found a lovly little podcast later on. ;)

I was just doing random Libertarian search and found a Libertarian web site that had a link to FTL.   I really don't listen to the radio any longer.  I tend to watch CSPAN or news my entertainment being BSG on scifi. I guess I do also end up watching Sesame Street with my son. If I see something note worthy I try to find it on google videos.  And I try to post it here.

I can't wait to see the story if someone ever chooses "From an ANTI-libertarian site or post"

Ipodder, aka Juicer. A year and a half ago, I heard about podcasting on NPR. The next day, I downloaded my first podcast, and started looking for libertarian shows.

Now, I'm pretty much done with radio. Who has the time for all that BS?

mikehz ... what did you vote for? I expected a 1 to be in - some other podcast directory, or one for a news source...

I really hope you didn't vote "a libertarian news source" for NPR

hehe

also, could you guys who vote for other podcast sites, blogs, etc ... name them...

it would help us out...
