One of the most often asked and most difficult questions for podcasters is, “How can I take live telephone calls on my show?” People have resorted to all sorts of techniques to bring live telephone callers on the air, including connecting a cell phone to the mixer using a TRRS cable and even holding a phone’s speaker up to a microphone. Neither solution is particularly robust.
You may be pleasantly surprised to learn that there is an excellent service that provides features only available in professional broadcasting equipment that can cost thousands of dollars. You can have a call screener located anywhere in the world who selects callers to be placed on the air. All the host has to do is click a button to go live with the caller. Hardware requirements are minimal. You need a fast computer and a mix minus from your mixer. Take a look.
