Voice of Kansas

An independent "free-for-all" press in Northeast Kansas. Infamous among conservatives in the flyover zone for hoisting their credo on a spike. Famous among progressives for foisting their foibles into the sunlight. Blogging on three blogs almost daily, three years and over 400 shows on blogtalkradio, Radio Free Kansas has become a radical voice from the barnyard for political mud wrestling. "Hillbilly Anarchist", "Homegrown Hippie" and/or "Left-wing Libertarian" call us what you will. We love lobbing literary hand grenades over the heads of stonewalling careerists in the political arena. We, also print from our farm in Jefferson county, Kansas on an antique press and piss off the local Republicans, regularly. Enjoy. Feel free.
