Ever since I got my SanDisk MP3 player
, I've been searching for great audio to download and listen to on my bike ride. I don't want to just rip the CD's I already own. One thing I've been doing is recording different Internet radio stations using Streamripper
and copying the songs to my player. That's definitely a whole lot better than the radio that's currently available (BTW, commercial radio sucks donkey balls (sorry about that, but it's accurate)). However, I don't always want to listen to music; sometimes I want to listen to some kind of talk radio, however commercial talk radio also sucks donkey balls. So from time to time I've been looking for podcasts, since that's the New Big Thing, isn't it? So I read the descriptions of the various podcasts in the various podcast directories, and most of them sound like Joe Schmoe sitting in his basement, just ranting (stupidly) about (stupid) bullshit, and that's not something I really want to lose a few minutes of my life listening to.
So, on one of the podcast directory websites, I entered "libertarian" as a search term, and lo and behold, I think I finally found something worth listening to. It's a radio show called Free Talk Live
, which broadcasts on a number of stations and has a podcast directory of archived shows. It's a couple of libertarian guys who pretty much seem to know what they're talking about, and have even signed up for the Free State Project
. They're not quite as polished or humorous as they'd like to be, but they're pretty good. I've only listened to one archived show thus far: this one
. The RSS listing for their show archive is here
I'll be checking them out more and will report back my thoughts...
