From the Fox News thread:
So...I was listening to The Michael Baisden show the other day, and I heard the last bit from a guest on the show talking about this whole thing with Fox News. The guy said something I had to admit made sense; that the left needed to promote more liberal voices. Quite aside from demographics and the fact that Fox will never put a strong liberal like a Maddow on any of its shows, I still think that it makes sense to groom some upcoming talent that can get out there and present the liberal perspective, just as the right does. Anyway, to that end, I know that D&D has a lot of smart and highly opinionated people that post here, and a few of them already produced a political ad. Couldn't we do some kind of talk show/discussion panel thing? I've been kicking the idea around a bit and would love to hear anyone's opinion on it.
So the point of this thread is to gauge interest in producing a politics themed talk radio and/or round table discussion podcast. Specifically, I'd like to know who all would be interested in participating and any ideas for interesting segments on the podcast. And even though I mentioned liberal voices, any political perspective is welcomed. Ultimately, I'd like to think we can create a political show that would be better than the silliness that goes on on cable news, and would be a somewhat more civil version of the politics threads we have around here. Anyway, comment away, and if we decide to get serious about doing this thing I'll compile ideas and participants in this OP.
EDIT: Also, if you have any technical knowledge about conferencing with Skype or something similar, or you have radio show experience, your advice would be very appreciated.
