Engaging, Liberty-Minded Discussions, LIVE 365 Days A Year

Forget what’s Left or what’s Right … Freet Talk Live is about Liberty with a capital L.

Free Talk Live

Hosts who believe in Liberty… to their core.

Free Talk Live is one of the most successful independent shows in the past 15 years in all of talk radio.

Free Talk Live is the entertaining, pro-freedom radio show your listeners have been waiting to hear! Program Directors have called Free Talk Live “smart”, “cutting edge”, “fun”, “young and refreshing”, “exciting”, and “the next generation of issues oriented talk.”

Free Talk Live is Talk Radio’s Reckoning with the principles of freedom.

Free Talk Live is an open phones panel discussion featuring hosts with a pro-liberty viewpoint that is truly unique in syndicated radio. Listeners are invited to engage the hosts and guests for substantive discussions many talk show hosts don’t allow and even fear.

Free Talk Live encourages listeners to reject the red team / blue team mentality, question authority, and think for themselves.

Ditch the predictable and go with the show that delivers every day of the week — Free Talk Live.

Free Talk Live hosts Ian Freeman and Mark Edge

Ian Freeman
Starting as an intern at a rock station when he was 17, Ian cut his teeth in both music and news/talk for five years until late 2002, when Free Talk Live was born. Ian hosts the show and performs most of the behind-the-scenes duties including affiliate relations, webmastering, and engineering. He is a seasoned activist who formerly considered himself a libertarian, but has since embraced voluntaryism.

Mark Edge
Mark was born and raised in the southern Tampa Bay area of Florida. With a practical, gritty edge, Mark has been on the air for 20+ years. Although he held office as a Republican for several terms, his politics doesn’t always jibe with others that call themselves Republicans. Mark believes peace and human liberty are the best solutions to any problem and that the U.S. has turned its back on these ideals. As a student of history and economics, he holds out hope that the US can return to constitutional restraints, but wonders when it is time to abandon the ship of state.
