The 1st net@nite show on TalkShoe


The new 'net @ nite' Talkcast with Leo Laporte and Amber MacArthur will be premiering this Sunday, November 5th, at 9:00 PM. We expect this even to be extremely well attended, and will certainly exceed TalkShoe records for number of people listening, talking and chatting.
Here are a couple of tips:
1. Sign up as a TalkShoe user Now
2. Download the software Now
to avoid the rush of last minute downloaders when the website is busy.
3. If you receive a busy signal on the live phone conference, that means the TalkShoe Live phone conference is at capacity. You can then:
- Open TalkShoe Live and Listen along and text-chat
- Go to the 'net @ nite' Talkcast page and Listen-only (stream)
4. Host your own show after the show (you can make money doing this)
5. Tell your friends about TalkShoe

    Can't believe no one has yet commented on this momentous occasion - the inaugural net@nite program with Leo Laporte and Amber MacArthur! In my unlearned opinion, the event was a great success and certainly a feather in TalkShoe's cap.

    There were hiccups, of course - you cannot be 100% ready for the unexpected, but to have a problem such as TOO MANY online participants is a welcome problem, it is rather a "challenge." Yet despite the minor quirks with the chat and interactive aspects, the sound quality was superb the entire TalkCast - some of the best I've heard. (Was that really Skye I was hearing carry Leo? - WOW!) My evaluation and all the praise was fueled today when I listened to a "webcast" that was complete garbage by comparison.

    Of course, true to form, within 24-hours TalkShoe came up with an emergency workaround just in case the problem reccurs - they seem to enjoy shaking up the status quo.

    It would be interesting to know how many of us were "chatting" and interfacing that way as compared to just the audio stream. When the phones were unmuted for the few seconds that listeners were invited by Leo to say "hello" a ridiculously huge number of voices responded in unfettered glee.

    Congratulations to TalkShoe, Dave Nelsen, and his excellent team as they took a leap forward in redefining casting ("net" or "pod", your choice, but "Talk" works best here) and to Leo and Amber in their wisdom to "chime in". As a TJ (TalkCast Jockey) and fan, I'll keep listening, too. Thanks for the rich experience.
