Experiment #2: The Chris Yeh Call-in Show

If you're not a personal friend, and you've ever wondered what it's like to talk with me, now's your chance.

I'm going to experiment with my own call-in show. Basically, I'll dial into a free conference service while I'm driving, and chat with anyone who wants to call in.

Rather than picking any set dates, I'll use Twitter to let folks know when they should dial in. Since I still haven't figured out how to send timely tweets from my plain old dumb T-Mobile phone (the tweets seem to take about 5 hours to make it from SMS to Twitter), I'll probably send out a tweet like this:

"Chris Yeh office hours start at 5:30 (5 minutes from now), and run for 30 minutes until 6 PM. Dial in now: 218-936-1100, code 94291"

If you want to participate, you should follow me on Twitter to make sure you get the notice about the next call-in session. Unfortunately, this will also expose you to frequent updates about my life, but hey, no system is perfect.

If it goes well, I'd love to find a service that will combine free conference calling with automated recording and posting of the session as a podcast. Then I will have fulfilled my ambition of being the laziest broadcaster on record.

If it doesn't go well, I guess I'll just have to put my dreams of being a drivetime radio host on hold.

Please add what time zone you're in -and we'll be on the same page! Just three characters is fine: PDT (Pacfic Daylight Time) etc.

I haven't tried it, but someone I know recently recommended Rondee as a free conf call system that automatically records an MP3... Not sure if it posts it somewhere or just emails it to you.
