I guess I'm done with Free Talk Live...
« on: March 15, 2014, 01:49:50 PM »

Every show lately has either turned into "the bitcoin hour" or "Puke-talking through half-baked thoughts with Darryl" - I can't even recommend the show to new liberty-minded friends anymore because it's embarrassing - I keep making excuses as to why the shows are usually better, but they're never better anymore. When I started listening to Free Talk Live, it was obviously Liberty 101, but the show was professionally done and entertaining to listen to, now it has all the accoutrements of a high school or college radio show - its amateur hour. As I've said in the past - I own and trade with bitcoin, but I don't listen to radio shows or watch television programs about it because it's fucking boring! Get Darryl off the air and Ian, stop pretending like you've got a deep radio voice - own your squeaky voice, there is no reason to boost the bass and whisper into the microphone - it's a lame trick that talentless radio hosts resort to, and it sounds like crap. I just took two weeks off from listening to the netcast and downloaded one of the more recent shows today - heard Darryl puking into the microphone and shut it down. Only the Sunday show plays in my area now, so that's your introduction to this market, a brain-dead feminist twat lacking in original thought. How in the fuck do you put Darryl and Stephanie on a microphone when you've got The wise janitor, Ali and Julia...even Johnson is a good host if he would just clear his throat once in a while. Cripes, I feel like someone ran over my dog - it sucks so bad that you guys have lost sight of the show and just dial it in now. Mark and Ian are great together and you've all but abandoned that formula for what?

Since I doubt we will get ElGuapo to call in with this, first, thanks for the review. Many people don't like bitcoin as a topic. I can't help it. I think it is a brilliant way to bring people more liberty. I wish I knew a better way to push bitcoin, but talk about it less. I don't.

Two, no one fakes a voice. No one, ever. You are wrong. Sorry. Just wrong. Those are their voices. They are not faking. Really. Really.

I enjoy a lot of the Bitcoin discussion, though obviously a lot of it is also ads.  If there weren't Bitcoin-related ads, it would be something else.  At least it's not the death barges (aka, "Life Yachts") anymore.

No one changed the formula.  You just don't like the show anymore, and that is fine.

Please check out the dozens of shows featured on LRN.FM.  Surely you will find something you like.  Sorry it didn't work out.

The wise janitor

Johnny Ray is definitely my favorite co-host, but I've only been listening since last spring. There was a show where he was talking about being a former smoker who's a light dipper. Podcast gold.

I happen to like Darryl's half-baked thoughts. To paraphrase badly "Imagine that the ghost of Lyndon Johnson, uh, held a press conference on, like the, white house lawn and said the Vietnam war was based on a lie." I chuckled at that and actually had to replay those few seconds.

Sometimes there are topics or co-hosts that aren't working for me. I don't listen. Sometimes it's brilliant, sometimes it's mediocre. Think of it like baseball if you watch that. It's on everyday. Sometimes it sucks, sometimes it's brilliant.

You should do more like that porn contest I saw on YouTube, you and Neal and someone else I can't remember. No idea if it would translate to podcast but OMG so entertainingly watchable even for str8 guyez

I'm pissed that Sirius XM dropped the contract with Clear Channel, which was broadcasting Free Talk Live. That was the last time I listened to the show.
