Call In Tips

The Call Screener

Your call will be screened by shortyknits. She’s pretty awesome and sweet so please be courteous to her.  Your fate is in her hands (she might “forget” to put you into the show queue if you’re not nice.)

She will ask you for your caching name and where you are from (City/State). Also you can give her a brief synopsis of the reason for your call or your specific question/comment.

Getting on the Air

Not every call is guaranteed to be answered by the hosts. Be patient, and if you don’t get on the show this week please keep trying! Once picked up by the hosts, do not be offended if your call is disconnected without a proper goodbye. Goodbyes don’t always fit into the conversation.

International Callers

While we LOVE to hear from our International listeners, please be advised that our 808 area code IS NOT an 800 number. You will be billed for a long distance International phone call! Trust us, shortyknits will get you through to the queue as fast as possible and make it known you are from afar. But still, we don’t want to see any buyers remorse when that phone bill comes! Pro Tip: Get a Skype Account!

NEW FOR 2020! Our international callers can now use the web to call in for FREE with WebRTC Calling!

Callers will be asked to enter their name and the subject they are calling about. Once your request is submitted, you will be queued to connect to our show. If there is an open line available, you will confirm your desire to connect to the show and the call will be initiated.

On your host interface, you will see web callers connected like any other callers, and their name and what they are calling about will be populated in the note of the call. The caller’s phone number will display as “Web” followed by their public IP address they are calling from.

Your call will be screened by shortyknits. She’s pretty awesome and sweet so please be courteous to her.  Your fate is in her hands (she might “forget” to put you into the show queue if you’re not nice.)

Stay on Topic

Please make sure your comments/questions are in line with that episode’s topic. We will continue the tradition of a monthly “Cacher Coffee” episodes for random conversations that don’t fit in elsewhere. Or simply email us your off-topic question/comment, and we might even turn it into its own future show!

Don’t #$@&%*! Swear

Remember this is a family friendly show. The hosts do have the capability to terminate the call at any time. Please try not to swear or be inappropriate. We promise we’ll try as well!

Turn Your Sound Down

If you were listening to the show before you called in, make sure the sound on your computer is turned off. Caller echos are not fun for anyone!

You’ll be able to listen to the show while on hold, so you can jump right into the conversation once/if your call is answered by the hosts. You will hear a beep when you are live on the podcast. You will also be welcomed by the hosts, so please pay attention!
