NEW — Non Member Calling

| Author: TalkShoe Team | In Announcements, Host Lounge News Print This Post

Some, but not all, of you know that there are now two (2) different choices to enter a Talkcast. There’s the traditional way where a participant signs up, chooses a PIN, and dials in. In this case their Display Name and profile info is shown. Hosts must enter this way.

The NEW way is to NOT SIGN UP as a member. Instead, you just call in, enter the Talkcast ID, and then 1#. That’s it! You’re in. If we recognize your area code with caller-ID, we’ll display something like “Pennsylvania” as your Display Name.

So with non-member calling, Free ShoePhone, mobile phone access, and listen-only streaming, we continue to make it easier to get live participants.

1-year Anniversary of Leo Laporte using TalkShoe

It’s our 1-year anniversary of Leo Laporte using TalkShoe, and time to reminisce…

It was back in October 2006 when Leo Laporte of TWiT-TV first told us that he was planning to use TalkShoe. Leo, for those of you who don’t know, is the #1 podcaster in the world by most measures. We had a couple of weeks to prepare, and we had no idea what kind of traffic Leo would generate, and what part of our system would break. At that time, we didn’t (we do now!) for example have anyway to heavily load-test our system.

The BIG day came on November 5, 2006 when Leo and Amber (MacArthur) first went live …
