I was once a guest caller on Moxie's internet radio show back when she was doing it on Blog Talk Radio. It was a pretty good time and it was nice of her to let me in on the fun along with Steve H.
BTR was pretty good - basically it was a live "radio" show streamed over the internet and people could call in and talk over their phone to Moxie - just like live radio.
She has now made the move to Nowlive, which I think is a step up. In addition to the things that BTR had to offer, with Nowlive you get a (somewhat crappy) video feed of the proceedings. It looked to me that Moxie was actually in a real studio somewhere. Pretty nice. The best part was that there is a message board where creeps like me can log in and impart wisdom. Steve H. was guest hosting last night and I got an out loud laugh out of Steve and Moxie when I laid down a pretty damned good line. Moxie had some liberal doofus on her show in the studio and I was getting bored of his whiny pissing and put up a message that said "less liberal guy, more Steve H.". Moxie and Steve H. both laughed out loud but the liberal guy had no clue what was going on since he couldn't see Moxie's laptop and the messages that were scrolling on it.
Fun! I asked them to have the liberal guy do a shot of Jim Beam too - that didn't go over as well as the first line. I laid a few other good ones in there to boot. It was a blast. It seemed that the others that were messaging were pretty boozy. I didn't understand some of the comments.
Anyway, the technology was pretty good. The stream worked well. The video somewhat sucks and I would prefer a nice still photo every five seconds over crappy video any day.
I haven't done a podcast for a long time and was thinking instead about doing a live radio show someday where our tens of readers could call in and contribute or call me names. I haven't picked the platform yet, but would like to gauge interest here - please drop a comment if you would like to hear me, and possibly Carl and Gerry drone on about guy stuff for 45 minutes or an hour.
