Our phones ring non-stop during the show, and we often only have a few seconds to decide to accept a call or let it go. This is an art, not a science, but if you follow these guidelines, you'll have a much better chance of getting on the air:
- Offer something that we're not hearing: a new perspective, a fresh question, a telling anecdote.
- Tell us a story. (A true story!)
- Speak from experience, not opinion.
- Make sure we can hear you. Land lines are often better than cell phones. Speaker phones are always terrible. Pull over if you're driving.

What is Podcasting?
Podcasting is a method of delivering audio files to your computer or portable player. You can think of it as a free electronic subscription. When you sign up for the Think Out Loud podcast, MP3s of the show will be sent to your computer automatically each day. You can then listen to individual shows on your computer's audio player (like Windows Media Player or iTunes) or transfer the show to a portable machine.
