    As I prep for tonight's show I am still trying to find a way to take call ins. I am open to ideas now as uberconference is not working.

    We can do that in a thread here. I think he wants live voices & conversations.

    @pc747 What about Hangouts? We can designate at what minutes who will call/talk. Or, get everyone in Hangouts & you call them about certain topics.

    That was a thought but requires the other end to have the bandwidth to support it. I may look at testing that idea though.

    Found an avenue. I am able to receive skype calls during hangouts. Tested and no one sees the number but me. So I may leave a number have post a time we may take live on air questions/comments.

    We can but then you have to keep refreshing the page. It's not nearly as easy as a chat room....... Just my... . 02

    Right now the challenge will be deciding how to do call-ins. Especially being we are just now trying it. With skype I will not have the time to vet before the show which means I could literally get a person on looking to sell used diapers.

    I won't call in then!!! Could have asked Nicely.


    We use Skype at work. It will do what you're trying and you can kick the offending person.
