Company Details


TalkShoe is the brain child of Dave Nelsen, who has spent his career in the telecommunications and software industries. Dave observed that there is no ideal way to find, connect with, and use voice to talk to interesting and like-minded people wherever they are. Thus was born TalkShoe - a new way to create live group calls, conversations, discussions and interactive podcasts (called Community Calls). TalkShoe allows people to use voice and text-chat to talk with interesting people with similar interests around the world. TalkShoe currently has almost 100,000 users and millions more listen to recorded Community Calls via iTunes and other podcast directories. People use TalkShoe to discuss a wide variety of topics including business, computers, sports, religion, politics, music, arts, science, travel, and much more. TalkShoe can be easily integrated with social networks to create, play and promote live and recorded Community Calls. Supported social networks include: iGoogle, Blogger, MySpace, Facebook, TypePad, Friendster, Webwag, Netvibes and Windows Live. The embed code can also be used to place on any website destination that supports flash (i.e. Ning).
