Join us on Friday for a discussion on man’s best friend!

Hello talking box fans!

Do you love dogs? Do you want to participate in a hangouts discussion about our favorite furry, four-legged individuals? If so, join us on Friday at 5:00 P.M Pacific, 8:00 P.M Eastern. We’ll cover topics such as dog training, grooming, bonding, playtime, and we may cover dog food if we have time, although there are varying degrees of products out there, and that could turn into a rather heated debate on what dogs should or shouldn’t eat.

If you would like to join us for this discussion, please send an email to talkingboxpodcast@gmail.com and provide a gmail address for the hangouts invitation to go through. Please have your emails in no later than 4:00 P.M Pacific or 7:00 P.M Eastern, so we can have time to set up the discussion and make sure everyone has gotten in correctly. The discussion should take about 2 hours, so we’ll have a lot of time to discuss all kinds of things. Oh, and one more thing, bring your dog! All our furry companions are invited as well, so allow them to fully participate with you in this discussion.

I look forward to seeing you there. We’re sure to have lots of fun!

Take care,

from Melissa and her furry friend Zappa, who will also be attending the discussion.

Hello and welcome to another episode of the talking box podcast, the first episode of 2016!

This episode features a live hangouts discussion that was held on January 2, 2016, at 5:00 P.M Pacific. We talked about our favorite book genres and authors, as well as shared some books we are currently reading.

You ladies rock!

Even though the discussion took place, it is not over, feel free to comment to the post, or contact us via the methods mentioned in the episode. I look forward to hearing from you!

Stay tuned for further updates and announcements. We have a discussion coming up on Friday if you want to join us. We’ll be devoting that time to our furry, four-legged friends, so hope you can make it out there if this subject interests you.

Preparing for our book discussion

Greetings, everyone!

I hope your holiday season is going nicely. I believe 2016 will be another awesome year! It will have its ups and downs, but we should always march forward with a positive attitude!

I’m coming to you today with some exciting news. As I continue to plan new episodes and produce new content for my podcast, I’ve decided to host a book discussion. I’m still unsure of what platform I’ll use, but I do have hangouts as a possible suggestion. Don’t worry, you don’t need to record your video feed, as you’ll be able to turn your webcam off with a keyboard shortcut. Although the discussion will be live on YouTube should we decide to go this route, the audio portion only is necessary for the podcast episode. I’m planning for the discussion to be held tentatively on the second of January, right after you’ve celebrated the new year! Why, you ask? Well, I can change it if popular demand calls for the change, but I want to have enough time to edit the audio and prepare the next episode before I’m plunged back into the wonderful, busy college life. Keep checking the blog, especially in the announcements category for further information, once we have the bugs ironed out. In the meantime, please send an email to talkingboxpodcast if you want to be invited personally to the discussion. If we decide to go with a hangouts on air discussion, an invitation will be sent to your Google account, so if you have and use a gmail address regularly, that is the preferred email to use.

The agenda for the book discussion will be as follows:
1. Introduction and favorite book genres.
2. 2015 book news, and what we can look forward to for 2016.
3. Favorite authors.
4. books everyone is currently reading.
5. Conclusion.

The agenda could change as the discussion date approaches, but for now, send any comments to the blog post if you have any suggestions.
There is no set time length for the discussion, but I’m absolutely hoping we can keep it under 2 hours. An hour can sometimes be too short, depending on the number of people who attend such a lively discussion. All I simply ask is that we refrain from using curse words, and be respectful towards one another. I’m still bouncing ideas around in my head, so now is really a good time to contact me if you have any ideas for the agenda, discussion platform, or date/time.

Finally, I plan to turn this blog category into a book network of sorts. If people want to discuss books and find something worthy of a blog post, let me know and we can see about adding your contribution to the blog. A great place to discuss books on a more thorough level is a social network called goodreads. You can find me on goodreads using the following link:
http://goodreads.com/morningsong

I look forward to seeing several of you at the book discussion! As I’ve said before, keep watching the blog for further updates.
Take care, and enjoy the rest of 2015!

A survey for the tech lovers!

Greetings, podcast listeners.

I hope everything is going well for all of you. I’ve been pretty busy, nearing the end of the semester, and of course, the dreaded finals week is coming up very soon. I haven’t forgotten about the podcast! That’s the main reason I came here today.

In an effort to get to know my listeners and see what they think about technology, I created a survey composed of 8 questions for everyone to fill out. There are, according to the survey, technically 9 questions, but the first is some introductory text, and an I agree check box. Hit the check box to  say you agree with the survey, and hit the continue button. You’ll be presented with the survey questions. Choose the answer of your choice, and the results will be discussed in over a week. Remember that no personal information should be written in these surveys. No information will be included in the podcast that is confidential. The next episode will be a talking box extra episode. We’ll come out with episode 6 in the near future, soon as school is out for the semester. Anyway, here’s the link. Thanks in advance for taking the time to fill out this survey.

Also, thanks to those who filled out the twitter poll about the apple watch. I post polls on twitter  on occasion. If you didn’t get a  chance to participate in the last poll, leave your comments about the apple watch here, and don’t forget to follow us on twitter, @theTalking_box. Thanks again for your help, guys. Take care, and stay tuned for our next episode!
