Radio Free Culture is a weekly program that explores digital culture and the arts.

Hosted by various WFMU personalities, Radio Free Culture is a weekly program that explores digital culture, net neutrality, piracy, the broadcast spectrum, digital rights, and archives and libraries in the internet age. We'll be interviewing some of the nation's key figures at the intersection of music, multimedia, and digital technology.

This program is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts. All music on the show can be found in the Free Music Archive. A new episode comes out every Thursday morning here on PRX, in WFMU's podcast archive and on iTunes.
