Ever Wanted Your Own Talk Show? Enter BlogTalkRadio.

As I’ve already confessed, I tend not to be the earliest adopter of new technology.  Hence, you may very well have already heard about BlogTalkRadio, but I just discovered it while listening to author interviews at mediabistro.com.  In case you too are slightly behind the curve, “BlogTalkRadio allows anyone, anywhere the ability to host a live, Internet Talk Radio show, simply by using a telephone.”  And, in the mode of all “freemium” internet-based services (think Skype and Animoto), the basic package does not cost a dime.

Intimidated?  Think you’d like to but you just don’t have the nerve?  Check out the “All Girl Talk Radio” program.  As a recent Time Magazine piece notes:

[T]his foursome of Detroit-raised businesswomen, wives and moms has steadily gathered steam in recent months as their hot topics and smart, sassy on-air personalities have reeled in thousands of listeners a week, some as nearby as W. 7 Mile Road and some as far away as the United Kingdom.

The All Girl Talk team is made up of Tamika Montgomery, 40, known to listeners as “The Conservative Ms. Tika”; Irresha Byrd, 35, a.k.a. “Ms. Muse”; 30-year-old Jessica Hence, dubbed “Ms. Jai”; and Angela Smith, 38, self-dubbed “Rambunctious Angie.” Taken together, they’re the masterminds behind a year-old show that sounds at times like a raucous, take-no-prisoners cross between “The View,” the sitcom “Girlfriends” and the casual chatter of four homies under the hairdryers at a west-side salon.

If they can do, surely you can too!

Not ready to start your own show?  Then, tune into any one of the hundreds available, 24/7, on BlogTalkRadio.com.  Check out “The Cosmetics Cop,” home organization guru, “FlyLady and Friends,” “Movie Geeks United,”  and one of my personal favorites, “Authors on the Air.”  There are programs covering music, art, politics, sports, education, science … you name it.

Without a doubt, it’s the voice of things to come.
