Live talk radio possibility?


New Member
Hi, I'm a semi-retired video and radio journalist who is making a video channel aimed at a UK group of workers, and having a surprising amount of success. I'd like to add some effective way of getting more feedback from my audience, and wondered about running a daily one-hour live internet talk radio show, with phone call ins, and having backlog shows playable on demand.

How practical is this? I don't have any problem with funding a small amount of kit, or with publicising the project to build an audience, but need some help and advice on the practicalities - like delivering the live feed, and arranging a server to deliver the show to the audience. What do I need to know, and think about?

The other alternative, of course, is to hook a camera into the mix and do a Facebook Live or YouTube live - that might be a better answer - but you comments requested!

The Facebook live streams are becoming quite popular and it seems fairly easy enough to set up, so that would be a good option to consider as well.
