The Final Straw Radio

The Final Straw is an hour-long, weekly radio show that strives to provide information and contribute to awareness of and participation in self-liberatory activities around the world by providing a platform to English-language listeners to learn about current struggles and ideas. Simply stated, we promote non-sectarian Anarchism(s) to enrich the struggle and widen participation in the battles against Capital, State and Coercion. We believe that the liberation of each is tied to the liberation of all, and so we work to cover struggles against Prisons, Police, Sexism, Racism, Hetero-patriarchy and against Civilization. We support autogestion and autonomy. The Final Straw has been operating since mid-2010 out of AshevilleFM, a freeform internet radio station in Asheville, North Carolina now broadcasting at WSFM-LP, 103.3 FM! The show is currently being rebroadcast on 88.1FM KWTF in Bodega Bay, CA. In Columbus, Ohio, the show can be heard on WCRS at 102.1 & 98.3 FM. In Olympia, Washington you can hear the show on the airwaves of KOWA-LP on 106.5 FM. If you want to hear this show on a station near you, drop us a line and we'll try to work it out! Archives of the series can be found at http://thefinalstrawradio.noblogs.org. Please feel free to borrow, steal and modify the content to further spread the ideas. If you see fit to do so, please drop us an email let us know so we can brag about it!

As a podcast special, we're sharing the first episode of the International Anarchist Radio Network's collaborative, monthly, English language radio show.  We may feature future episodes as our bandwidth allows on The Final Straw Radio libsyn account.  We hope you enjoy the content.

B(A)D NEWS – Angry voices from around the world“ is a monthly news program from the international network of anarchist and antiauthoritarian radios, consisting of short news segments from different parts of the world. As an international network of radio projects, we believe in the importance of international solidarity. And we also recognize the importance and the need to create and disseminate our own media and counterinformation.

We hope, with this effort, to reach out to other anarchist and antiauthoritarian projects, groups and individuals, and to strengthen our connections and our struggles in sharing our stories.

Although this program is in English, we recognize that even this ‚international‘ language can be alienating to some and we want to encourage others to create and share similar content in their own languages.

Below you can find an audio link which introduces the concept behind Bad News, as well as our first episode.
