What is Talkshoe?Talkshoe is a Web radio (podcast) site that hosts and archives free radio shows.
The Talkshoe server can accomodate up to 250 participants for each live show. Participants can join a show with text chat or a phone call.
Accidental Cure Web RadioWe're creating Accidental Cure Web radio episodes that will be available as free audio streams. We're not ready to launch full interactive shows with multiple callers, but that's where we're headed. The first shows will sound like conventional radio with programming that will cover topics from Dr. Yu's book. Check this page for news about our progress.
Background Information About TalkshoeTalkShoe's name is derived from Ed Sullivan's [1901-1974] pronunciation of the word "show" as "shoe." Ed Sullivan was a television variety show host [1948-1971] who introduced new acts -- including The Beatles in 1964. Ed started off his program each week with the words "Tonight, we have a really big shoe," mispronouncing the word "show."
Talkshoe's voice technology was developed by Compunetix for NASA to do space shuttle mission control with up to 4,000 callers per conference. Later, it was expanded to support up to 10,000 callers per conference.
Talkshoe was founded in June 2006 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania by Dave Nelsen, a former employee of the FORE Systems telecommunication company. Dave has kept the site low-key, wishing to build site traffic slowly by word of mouth. Early shows were produced by local Pittsburgh radio personalities, including radio talkshow hosts who simulcast via TalkShoe as another method of broadcasting their show and taking call-ins. Pittsburgh's CBS radio station [KDKA] is an example.
In 2006, former KDKA newscaster Elizabeth Day helped test Talkshoe with Pittsburgh Steelers Brett Keisel and Max Starks, who hosted the "Steel City Wrap Up," chatting about Super Bowl. Note: Interestingly, Pittsburgh's KDKA aired the first commercial radio program in the United States on November 6, 1920 that announced the returns in the Presidential election (Warren G. Harding had won the election). See: "All talk, all the time: New local Web site lets everyone have their say."
Equipment for Listening to a ShowThis section covers equipment you may already own, or may want to purchase to listen to (or pariticpate in) an Accidental Cure Web radio show.
Listening to a show requires the least amount of equipment. You'll need a set of ear buds or a set of headphones with a mini-RCA plug to plug into your computer. The ear buds at right are made by SONY and they cost about $10.
To hook up a set of ear buds, look for a an RCA socket on your notebook computer or sound card on the back of a computer workstation.
Computer speakers may also be used. Speakers that are external to a computer are hooked up with RCA jacks (if your computer has a sound card installed) or USB connectors for a USB port (USB is an acronym for Universal Serial Bus port. USB ports are now a standard on microcomputers).
