To commemorate our 100th GWC podcast, we're going live -- bringing GWC Podcast #100 to you in real time via TalkShoe.com at noon central time tomorrow, Saturday May 17th, 2008. Why? Because we feel like the GWC community is largely responsible for the podcast growing from a couple of people talking in a room to a weekly respite for thousands of people -- including us, of course. And we'd like you to participate in the joyous occasion. Here's how:
You can listen to the podcast in real-time via streaming by visiting this page at TalkShoe.com.
You can also listen remotely if you're away from your computer -- like, say, at work -- by dial into the call at (724) 444-7444. Enter call ID 17428 when requested.
Better yet, you can even interact in real-time with the GWC crew just like calling a radio show! if you sign up for a TalkShoe.com account (free) you'll receive a PIN. By entering the PIN when requested after you dial the number above, you'll show up in our call panel by name (or handle, or whatever you select in the signup) -- and we'll be able to take your call later in the show.
GWCers outside the US can participate, too! If you have a USB microphone, you can configure TalkShoe.com's ShoePhone and connect via VoIP. And, of course, you can listen to the live stream. Visit TalkShoe.com for details.
And a few details about how TalkShoe and the live podcast works:
All callers will initially enter the call muted.
If you'd like to talk to the GWC crew, select "Request to Talk" option, which will let us know that you have something to say.
When we take your "call," your phone will say "you've been un-muted" and you'll hear us introduce you. At that point, feel free to talk.
When you complete your "call," the crew will re-mute you.
After we finish recording the episode, we'll un-mute everyone for a fun free-for-all frak party. The last one was quite fun, so I'm guess this one will be, too.
If for some reason you can't make the live podcast, it'll release later via the same distribution method as a standard podcast -- though you won't be able to talk to the crew in real-time. So if you can make it, be sure to call in. We'll see you tomorrow!
