I have a new obsession these days....Paltalk.
A few months ago I first learned of Paltalk through the Opie
and Anthony show. Seems that the boys were broadcasting
both their CBS and XM show via webcams on the Paltalk service.
So, for $60 a year (which allows full motion video), I subscribed
to the Paltalk service and suddenly, I am obsessed.
Not only do you have the opportunity to watch and listen to

audio/video is strictly limited to live activity within the studio and
that viewers cannot hear callers or taped bits.
...and before someone even suggests this, no, I am not making
a dime off of Paltalk to entice you to join that service. I'm a
loyal O&A listener and I subscribed to the service out of my own
Couldn't be happier!
