Call In now!
As I have mentioned a few times over the past week, your continuing donations are going toward improving the show. Although the donations are still a bit short of my goal to cover the voice mail for a year, I have jumped the gun and set it up anyway. It will only take one or two more small donations to cover the cost, so I figured why wait any longer?
We now have an online voicemail system that you can call with your questions and comments. I love answering your emails, and they give me something to share with all the great readers on the daily email list. But I also know that some people don’t like writing long emails, and there are all those people who listen to the podcast who aren’t on the daily email list. This project is meant to make interacting with me and the Daily Buddhism listeners and readers easier. More access and easier interactivity for everyone!
So, here it is. You can call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, at the Daily Buddhism call-in line. The phone number is 937-660-4949. It’s not toll-free, but long distance is cheap enough that I hope that won’t be a problem for you. This is an automated voice mail system, not a direct phone line; I won’t answer live, so you can call anytime of the day or night without fear of bothering me or getting caught up in a conversation.
After you hear my recorded greeting, just state your first name and maybe where you’re calling from and then get on to your comment or question. If you’ve ever listened to the callers or a talk-radio show, try to use that format. If you don’t want to use your real name, then make up something fun.
‚ÄúHi, this is Brian from Dayton Ohio, and I have a question about karma‚Ä¶‚Äù
or something else entirely. It’s your line; use it how you like. You don’t have to have a question; if there’s a story you would like to share, or some classic reading or text, an inspirational poem, a book review, or anything, call in.
My Usage Policy
If you call the number, be aware that if it’s appropriate I will use the recording of your call on the weekly audio show; that was the while point of getting the number. Please don’t say anything too personal and especially no contact information; if you don’t want thousands of listeners to have that information, then don’t say it. I also may ‚Äúparaphrase‚Äù your words in writing for use in the Daily Email.
Once again, the phone number is: 937-660-4949
Give it a try, let’s see what we can all do with it!
