About our name
What’s in a name? A description of a website? An interesting story?
In our case, it’s both.
“Talk” refers to our goal of enabling people to connect to others with common interests.
“Shoe” comes from watching the Ed Sullivan show way back when. Ed Sullivan was a famous variety show host who introduced new and different acts — including The Beatles in 1964. Ed started off his program each week with the words “Tonight, we have a really big shoe,” mispronouncing the word “show.”
Hence the name — TalkShoe, a play on TALK SHOW.
No, we’re not an internet radio producer, but we are about the talk show idea of enabling people to create, participate in, and listen to interesting and entertaining talk-based content.TalkShoe
