Why are there no Republican Podcasts?

I LOVE political podcasts, and I listen to whatever I can get my hands on.

Unfortunately, none of the top Republican talk show hosts have full lenth (35 min. or more) podcasts available for free, so I really don't listen to them as I hate commercials on the AM stations.

I listen to Rachel Maddow (full 40-45 minutes)

Blast the Right (30 min. or so, whenever it's available)

and Free Talk Live (Anarcho-Libertarians, LOVE this show, don't always agree, but it's always an interesting 2 hours.)

I find that my politics have shifted a bit more into the Libertarian Zone since I've been listening to podcasts.

I'm still more of a Republican than a Democrat, but.. Thanks to free podcasts, I believe now that in order to be free myself, I must let others, (no matter how much I might disagree with their personal lives) live the way that they want to.

My basic point...

I'm NOT a fiscal liberal, I never will be. But podcasting has opened my eyes to social Liberalism.

I still enjoy all points of view, and I wish that I could listen to Republican talk shows on podcast for free and support if I wish ( I do support FTL on a voluntary monthly basis ONLY because I like the show, I get all of the content either way)

Aren't there any talented little guys that have a good show that don't charge 5-10 dollars a month? Or should I just keep listening to my Democratic and Libertarian talk shows only?
