The Final Straw Radio is a weekly, anarchist radio show based out of Asheville, NC. Its hosts, Bursts and William, work to bring listeners: timely info; insights from folks in struggle against injustice and for autonomy; thoughts and expressions from artists and authors working to enlighten and overcome sexism and racism; as well as stories from activists creating a world where our ecosystems are healed and where everyone shares power, across Turtle Island and beyond! We also produce an irregular tech security podcast that occasionally makes it into TFSR, called Error451.

You can find our episodes back to 2009 at our website, thefinalstrawradio.noblogs.org, alongside projects that we affiliate with through the Channel Zero Network (of English-language anarchist podcasts) and The A-Radio Network (which produces a monthly anarchist news podcast in English called B(A)DNews). We love feedback, so please find out how to follow us on various social media presences and ways to contact us there as well, or drop us a letter at: TFSR, P.O. Box 6004, Asheville, NC 28816.
