We just launched a "Secret email address" service that makes it possible to post to groups anonymously from any email address. This is a bit of a power-user feature, but it's a very useful for automated posting from scripts, forwarding email (e.g. customer service email), etc.
I'm thinking about doing a podcast that brings together policy, society & culture, with some tech and business sprinkled in. Interesting interviews, etc. I'm curious - other than instant audience, is there any other reason to team up with a terrestrial radio station or network?
I have little patience for people who might catch a few minutes of network news every once in a while and who've never cracked open a book since high school, yet somehow believe that they are still "informed" about the world around them.
What's the best setup for recording landline (not VOIP) telephone interviews for later use / editing in a podcast? Envisioned situation: interviewer uses a Snowball USB mic at a Mac Pro wearing headphones. Remote interviewee just talks on regular phone like a normal human. I imagine it'd require some kind of mixboard + a phone jack??
