We Are Back!

After a year of hiatus, Free Radical Radio is returning in a new iteration.  We are a group of anarchists, nihilists, label-haters, readers, but above all we find joy and passion in the sharing and discussion of ideas.  We intend to use this project as an outlet to share audio recordings we have created that challenged us, interested us, or made us laugh so hard that we cried.  There is possibility that podcasts will happen again, but only if we are inspired and driven by our own desires to make them happen. read more
