“As the Americans learned so painfully in Earth’s final century, free flow of information is the only safeguard against tyranny. The once-chained people whose leaders at last lose their grip on information flow will soon burst with freedom and vitality, but the free nation gradually constricting its grip on public discourse has begun its rapid slide into despotism. Beware of he who would deny you access to information, for in his heart he dreams himself your master.” – from the computer game Alpha Centauri by Sid Meier.

  1. Thought I’d let you know why I like the podcast and find it very valuable.
    Over the course of my membership in the pirate party I have been very busy with work obligations. As such, I can’t spend the amount of time I would like getting involved in the pirate party and reading up on the lastest issues and developments.

    At the very least, if I listen to this podcast I’m relatively aware of what is happening So thanks!</strong, keep at it.

    1. Thanks for your comment! I love podcasts because I do a lot of driving and don’t have a lot of reading time, so I know exactly what you mean.

  2. Hi, Im from the UK and I am happy to have found this Pirate Party Webcast!
    I was disapointed when RantMedia stopped their Pirate Party Radio Podcast so this fills the gap that was left.
    Now I just need to figure out how to add this feed to the podcast app on my phone.

    1. Wow a listener from the mothership!… err.. country. Glad to to have you onboard and thanks for dropping by.
