  • Pros: 

    Good way to broadcast otherwise "closed" conversations to your network.

    Cons: 

    A little tricky to get setup with a co-host.

    I've used Dialog to host a design call with a friend where we just shoot the shit about a product we both use. Unlike a Twitter conversation, it's focused and free-flowing, and doesn't require a lot of setup. Tuning in to Dialog calls is super interesting as an experience because it feels - unless you raise your hand to participate in the call - like you have this inside track to an otherwise private conversation!

    My friends and I have thought about starting a podcast forever and never did anything about it. Dialog is the first platform that made us at least take an initial crack at it without making it feel like a mountain of work. This could be the future of podcasting as we know it!

    Pros: 

    + love how fast and easy it is to get started with anyone to host a show.

    Cons: 

    - Scheduling around to make sure you get the best audience in the door

    I have used it every week for past month to host a show with my gym. It is also great when you are talking to your friends about something interesting and want to broadcast it. I love the platform and will keep using it :)

👋 Hi all! I’m Daniel Debow, and together with @fnthawar and @davidpardy we created the Dialog project. Today, we all complain that social media is toxic. Trolls and polarizing comments divide us. People don’t listen and learn from each other. Human empathy is lost. We wanted to build something better. Something different. So, we created Dialog. Dialog is a community dedicated to live, spoken conversation online. Dialog uses your spoken voice. It's for interactive conversation. It has built-in controls to keep conversations safe. We hope Dialog can facilitate a different social experience online. Dialog is a person-by-person movement - for people who enjoy conversation and learning. Join us today!

This is a really interesting way to challenge some of the negative elements of social media ... using voice creates an authenticity which is on the complete opposite end of the spectrum to the anonymity social media aliases permit. Interested to see how this develops in future...

Reminds me of Anchor's first iteration, which was more social and conversational. While it might be too early to tell, what topics or types of conversations are you seeing on the platform, @ddebow and team? UPDATE: Me and @pt hosted our first Dialog. Here's the recording.

@rrhoover hey! It is early for sure and we really want to see what evolves - but so far we’ve had conversation on politics (local and national), tons of sports commentary, hobbies (d&d to bdsm!), music (and the music industry), parenting, global travel and more. As well, a number of businesses have used Dialog to create easy and engaging ways to go deep on content in their industry. We’ve seen HR consultants, Cannabis businesses, crypto, and general startup folks create dialogs. It’s amazing to see what people will create with their voice when given a platform!

@rrhoover that was my thought and there were a lot of leanings why that's a hard model to get off the ground. Still, will be great if it works out!

@ddebow @rrhoover I was thinking this too, and kinda wonder how this is going to affect services like @anchor which have, up until now, seemed to have become the go-to place for co-hosting podcasts "made easy" -- as someone who enjoys talking (a lot), I might play around with this. I liked Anchor's first iteration a little more than what it's evolved into because I enjoyed the conversational dynamic of it (although what they are now is also cool, just a different kind of use-dynamic I think). Will be interesting to see how this ends up iterating out. 🤔

@rrhoover @chrismessina we’re gonna try hard @chrismessina ... it is hard model indeed. But the payoff for improving our internet - people actually talking to each other - is worth it.
Chris Messina@chrismessina · Product designer & entrepreneur
@ddebow I don't doubt the theoretical benefits — but as an early avid user of Anchor 1.0 — I'm just curious what you plan to do differently, given all the learnings that Anchor put into their version 2.0, which lead them to focus on podcasting.
