I too miss voicemails, but just send an audio clip in an email. The sound quality is way better, and it's likely easier for them to deal with.

I would love to start hearing user feedback and user audio in the bombcast.

I would love to hear audio files from users on it but I think if we could email it , it would sound better.

no beacuse that singles out people from the US only to be able to phone.

I guess, but it's not as simple as picking up the phone and dialing. Also... I totally have 1-877-506-8324 memorized, so... that stuff hella sticks.

I think i just wept a little when i read that number

Yes I would enjoy a phone line, it is much easier then writing an email, but it is not neccesary.

I could care less. Most of the people whose call-ins ended up on the Hotspot (before, during, and after its heyday) were absolute tools.

They did say that you can just send in a recording of you as an MP3.

I'm actually against it. Don't know why, never liked phones...

I think it is fine as it is, there's no need for a phone line in my opinion.

Phone calls would be alright. I wouldn't mind them.

feel free to send in your audio questions to the e-mail address. make 'em reasonably sized mp3s, though, if you can. they're the easiest for us to deal with. I don't really see us doing the phone number thing anytime soon.


Land lines are so 1990.

Ahhaah the memories!!  :D  But that number belongs to Rich, and nobody else.

A phone line is unneeded.  Digital voice mail for the bombcast!

Yeah audio calls were great back on the Hotspot, I still remember that Sony fanboy going crazy down the phone..

Good times, good times.

According to Jeff's Tumblr he's set up a Google Voice mailbox at 707-925-BOMB. He's already posted some random message he received, you can probably leave something there.

Maybe we'll get some voicemail questions on the next Bombcast.

After listening to some phone calls from '05-'06 Hotspot, and hearing some of the questions people ask at PAX, I really don't want to listen to that on the bombcast. At least, not until people learn to ask a question, not a tell a 15 minute story with "...what do you think?" attached.

That is so true ... but then someone calls in about them watching the knife show and tossing up between a Wii or some knives and magic happens. It could be worth a try...

Voice calls on the podcast would be the worst. Having to sit through someone's entire inane, more than likely unfunny message, when it can't be condensed by Jeff like an e-mail, would quickly get tired. What's wrong with a good e-mail?
