Talkshow: Start a conversation

Talkshow is a new messaging app that allows users to have public texting conversations that can be shown either in real time or after the conversation has taken place. Similar to a podcast, Talkshow users can start conversations on a variety of topics like sports, politics, entertainment or business that can be continued as a weekly series featuring different guests and experts. Talkshow "hosts" can also lead Q&A sessions, choosing to answer questions asked by other users viewing the conversation. Companies and individuals have already seen success with the app, including The Washington Post, which hosted a 90-minute talk on generational identity, a tech blogger and podcaster who used the app to live-text during the global development conference, and the CEO of MarketBase, who started a weekly interview series called "Pop Life."
