What exactly is a Talkcast(tm)?

| Author: TalkShoe Team | In Announcements Print This Post

A Talkcast(tm) is a new way to talk and communicate using the Internet and/or your phone, to connect with other people. Lots of people can simultaneously get on a Talkcast using the TalkShoe website. They can talk, listen, and/or text chat with each other.

Why would people want to do this?
There are lots of reasons to host or join a talkcast. At it’s core it’s a way to find other people who want to talk about the same thing.
Perhaps you’ve always wanted to be an amateur talk show host, and interview people.
Or talk with people after “the game” and voice your opinions.
Or talk and chat with lots of your college buddies about old times.
Or form a political or psychology discussion group.
Or learn about something.
Or discuss a book with a book club.
Or talk to a celebrity.
Or create a new dating game.
Or just talk.

So what’s the difference between a Talkcast and a phone conference call?
Sure, you could use TalkShoe to create a free conference call with people you know. In fact, that’s a good reason to use the website. But a talkcast adds lots of features you don’t have in a conference call. First, every Talkcast has a host. Ever been on a multi-party conference call with nobody in charge? That’s right, it’s chaos. Having a host keeps the conversation on topic. The host of a talkcast can mute or even censor people who are taking over the conversation or using unwanted profanity. Second, a talkcast gets people together who want to talk about the same thing, and brings people together who probably don’t know each other. Third, a talkcast visually shows who’s talking, by flashing their name. Finally, a talkcast can be recorded so that you, or anyone else who visits the website can listen to, or download that talkcast to their iPod.
