Well, the test I did last night over at Blog Talk Radio was a success. Everything on their end worked perfectly, though I think I need to use a landline next time to get some better sound quality. I’d try using my microphone if there was a free way to do it. Fortunately for them, but unfortunately for the rest of us, the only real option I know of for VOIP is Skype, and you have to pay to use them. I’m not quite willing to pay $0.021 cents a minute with Skype or $2.95 a month. Not yet, anyway, while I still have a cell phone. Though I might consider it when I final go solo, since the rate are pretty good.
So, for now, I need to use my landline or cell phone. Unfortunately, I don’t know if landlines are free to call their number, or if a long distance charge would be associated with it. I sent them off a question about it, so hopefully I should get a response soon.
The basic premise I have is to not do a show solo, but with one or two other people. I already have one person I know lined up, and have to ask another person I have in mind if he’d like to do it. We’ll probably be doing it on a Saturday night, which is actually kind of a crappy time to do it, haha. But, I have to go by his schedule, so we’ll see how it works. The show will be primarily political in nature, with coverage of both American and European politics, and also a little of everythin in between.
So, stay tuned. It ought to be fun.
