WordPress Weekly is a live, weekly podcast that talks about all things WordPress every Friday night at 9 PM EST. The show specializes in covering the news throughout the WordPress community as well as special interviews with all of the smart people that make up the WordPress community. To call into the show, dial 724-444-7444 and when prompted for the talkcast ID number, enter 34224. Alternatively, you can use a SIP client. Directions for this method as well as instructions on how to subscribe to the podcast can be found below.
WordPress Weekly Chatroom:
If you want to call in to the show via telephone, Skype, payphone landline, etc, dial 724-444-7444 and follow the audio instructions. *Note* In one of the recent updates to Talkshoe, anonymous calling is now supported. This means you can call in and participate without the need to create a Talkshoe account. However, if you have a Talkshoe account, your registered name will show up within the Talkshoe client letting others know who is speaking. I also want to let you know that Talkshoe has had problems with people calling in anonymously, trying to crash peoples shows or prank call hosts. Having a registered user account will give you a better chance of being on the air. When you dial into the show and you want to speak on the air, press *8 on your dial pad. This is the request to talk feature and will let me know you want to chime in on the discussion.
You can also use SIP clients such as ProjectGizmo or X-Lite. For example, when I use X-Lite to dial in, I type in firstname.lastname@example.org and then follow the audio directions. If you would like to use X-Lite but are unsure in how to configure the software, I highly advise you to check out my in depth tutorial (Installing And Configuring X-Lite)which explains everything you need to know.
Remember this information as it will be required when you want to dial into the show.

The first is by listening to the live stream. Every Friday at 9PM EST, a live stream of the show is enabled, allowing you to listen to the show LIVE as it is being recorded. You can listen to the live stream via the web application which allows you to chat, or you can listen to the stream only. It’s your choice.
The second option is to wait until the final show notes are published on WPTavern.com. When the show notes for WordPress Weekly are finalized, I always embed a talkshoe player at the end of the post which allows you to listen to that episode on the website.
The third option is to subscribe to the Talkcast RSS feed. Each Talkshoe player that is displayed on the website has a small RSS icon near the top right corner of the player. Clicking this icon will allow you to subscribe to the feed, and will download the latest episodes into your Feed Reader.
The fourth option is to subscribe to the show via Itunes. Talkshoe provides a link you can use to subscribe to a Talkshoe show through Itunes. If you want to subscribe via Itunes or RSS, the best thing to do is to visit THIS PAGE and click on the Itunes button or the RSS button.
The fifth option is to manually browse to the talkcast homepage and manually download each episode as an mp3 file. When you visit the homepage, click on the DOWNLOAD button and that will download the appropriate episode in an mp3 format that has no DRM attached to it.
