Precocious Producer Blogs about TalkShoe

| Author: TalkShoe Team | In In The News, Press Print This Post

Vida Christy, owner of the Precocious Producer podcast has written a great post called Interactive Podcasting…Talk Casting… Read the Blog Now

Excerpt: What I enjoy is the potential that is giving to burgeoning media mavens, and Shawn Spence capitalized on it wonderfully. Her show really allowed for high levels of discourse, and yet she had the organizational tools available in her interface to keep the conversations moving and fluid. The greatest part of this utility is that you can record it live through the application. You then can publish it as you would a locally recorded and edited podcast. So, all at once its live, and syndicated. I love it.
