WFMU and the Free Music Archive are proud to bring you a fresh episode of Radio Free Culture, a weekly podcast exploring issues at the intersection of digital culture and the arts. 

In this episode, Cheyenne Hohman, RFC host and current Director of the FMA, spoke to Kristin Thomson, a primary researcher on the Artist Revenue Streams project with the Future of Music Coalition, about how the ways artists have made money has changed in the wake of the Web. You can read along with some of the findings in this slide deck: "Ten ways that technology-driven changes have impacted musicians."

Stoked to hear another, "What this scene needs is human curation." I agree. The FMA is helping with that, as am I and many others. Now, a study on how curators get paid ;)

If anyone's interested in recruiting human curators to their cause, visit for contact info!
