We've tested out a web-cast solution and are planning to broadcast the proceedings for 7/20 1-4 central time live. Check out partiallyexaminedlife.com/PEL-Live at the time (well, hopefully we'll get the cast started 10 minutes early or so) and you'll be able to see both the musical opening act (me and my violin buddy Rei playing for about 20 minutes), then maybe some Philosophy Bro for a few minutes reading some of his work while we get settled, then our full episode #100 discussion of Plato's Symposium.
We'll be doing this with Google Hangouts On Air. I THINK that watching this, then, will require that you take a second to create a Google Plus account (if you don't have gmail or a Chrome login or anything like that already), and ready yourself to be able to do hangouts. When you click the link to watch, it should just guide you through the process, but you may want to go look at Google's documentation in advance and make sure you'll all set to go, as it does require installing some kind of browser extension:
Note that we'll be using an iPhone hotspot as our Internet connection for this 'cast, so it may well not work. No guarantees!
If you miss it, worry not. We'll also be videotaping, using better equipment and a better sound feed than you'll see on the webcast, and posting that at some point after the fact. And of course the episode will be edited per usual and posted on our podcast feed.
There are still more than 10 seats left (and a whole balcony of listening-only space) if you're in the neighborhood of Madison, WI and want to catch us in person. You can order said seats in advance online here or just show up on a whim. Tell your friends who live in the area!
