Picture this – Talk Radio meeting Podcasting. Using a new service called Talkshoe, Amber and Leo have added a different and thoroughly enjoyable show to the TWiT Network. Talkshoe allows the hosts to record a podcast, while listeners can call in live (via phone or PC) to listen to the show – with some coming ‘on-air’ live to pose questions. There is also a live chat (IM) facility that enables fans to interact with the hosts/each other. Obviously, shows need to be scheduled, so listeners know when they can call in. Now you can see why it takes on the feeling of a talk radio show.
This would be fantastic for a station like 702 when a guest or topic needs more airtime, but the rigidity of broadcast radio would not allow it.
It requires a small client-side download which then allows you to listen, participate in or host a show. So, if you are awake next Sunday at about 4am SA time, then call in…
Phone Number: +1 (724) 444-7444
Talkcast ID: 3185
Its good to see this kind of innovation. It is a great addition to the podcasting world. Oh, sorry – as Leo suggested, they should be called Netcasts.
