Sweet! I was a bit annoyed when I found out that my favorite podcast, er, netcast, ‘This Week in Tech’ (TWiT) had been put on hold because no one was available. Thats burn out, pretty sure of that. Anyway, Leo Laporte is back! He and Amber MacArthur will be doing a tech review show so we can still get our dose of Leo. I’ll miss the grumpy Dvorak but maybe he will be back as a guest. The cool think about all this is the show will be netcast’ed live so people can call in. I love that! That to me is the one big dynamic thing that podcasting, er, netcasting (I’ll get that right someday) has been missing. Radio call in shows have been doing it for decades but that works because of the serious money used to get phone lines, equipment, and hardware. If this software they they are using (Talkshoe) works then this could be the start of a true revolution in Internet entertainment. Think if Sirius used this during their regular Internet radio broadcasts?
Amber and I are proud to announce the first live TWiTcast. We’re reinventing Inside the Net, and renaming it net@nite. You’ll still be able to listen to the show as a podcast every Tuesday, but you can also listen live as we record it Sunday nights. Even better, you can participate.
