how about crowd sourcing? e.g. email/twitter/irc/reddit Q/A section. people love hearing their screen names read on a podcast.

How exactly would this work? crowd sourcing I mean

I agree with it being a live show.

idk, people live tweet questions at the caster and they answer them. like a live Q/A. but they pick the questions they want/can answer.

That is a good idea. Google hangouts does have some kind of q and a feature

I like the mumble server idea, provided there is little latency (that could make things difficult).

I think maybe doing it "live" would be a little challenging (who knows what odd hours we would be doing this), but what about having people email things in throughout the week and during the podcast we pull it up and read from it?

This would act as a good alternative to the live show. If the show times are announced this will give the community time to send things in..

I propose tox. A skype alternative that's free (all terms). There are many different clients to it (kinda like IRC), and I'm aware of one (ratox for the curious) that would make the recording as easy as "cat call_out > record.wav".

One can create a group in tox, and invite people in it (like skype). If not, I have a mumble server that's up 24/7 (topped to 10 users though)

I like the idea of using tox but there doesn't seem to be a client that supports group audio chat.
Edit: oh wait, maybe there is

As a matter of fact, here is a Tox session between two clients: uTox and ratox: http://raw.z3bra.org/vid/tox-session.mp4

uTox is a light client written in C, really easy to use, and ratox is a fifo based client (kinda like ii, but for tox). I didn't have the occasion to try out tox live, so I'm not well organised when using ratox. that's why you can see windows everywhere :P (but it's demostrative enough for this presentation).

Side notes about the video:
  • you can't hear it, but the calls are working
  • I make use of rat-play and rat-record which are just aliases to aplay/arecord
  • I tried the ffmpeg command "live" to see what would happen. it failed. but it can obviously be done with the good flags
  • I'm not sure how those two would handle group calls. Why not try it live ?

I find tox to be a nice alternative to VoIP softwares, and it would definitely be nice to promote it by creating our podcasts with it. Who's with me ?

EDIT: found this page about features in clients... It seems that none of them actually support group audio at the moment...
