“The new TalkShoe breaks down the barriers that at one time prevented many listeners from participating in my live shows because they didn’t want to go through the hassle of registering yet another user name and password on yet another website and then download another software package. Now, potential listeners can simply click on a link from my TalkShoe page and immediately join a community call. I have already noticed considerably more responses to my show invitations and I’m thrilled with this new opportunity to build even greater relationships with my social community.”
