I just finished being a guest of sorts on the Wicked Decent Learning podcast. Jeff and Dan, the hosts decided a couple of episodes ago to do a “call in” show via Skype. I’d never actually tried Skype before. It is dirt simple. I got a Tweet from Dan that the podcast had started.
I decided what the heck, I jumped on to Google and found Skype’s site, downloaded the client (took about 4 min. via DSL) and launched it. It did take about 2-3 min. to get a user name (easy) and then to find Wicked Decent Learning (moderate difficulty).
But once on, I was in the chat and Dan texted me through the steps to keep my mic muted. Finally, it was my turn and I got to ask a few questions. It was pretty cool. Those of us not in the “radio” discussion could comment via text or have a side conversation (text). It was a really cool way to do a radio style call in show. I think the guys pulled it off. I’ll be waiting to hear the whole show – eps. 51 or 52, I’m not sure. Check out their blog and subscribe to them via iTunes.
