Algumas questões que ainda não consegui perceber, porque o site não explica:

- os programas são emitidos em directo? com ouvintes?

- passam primeiro na rádio e depois neste operador? são simulcasting com a rádio?

O programa da dra Laura é emitido «Live links work only between Noon and 3:00pm PST» If there are no stations near you, Dr. Laura can be heard on XM Radio, via your cellphone through Cellecast, or through StreamLink: Ou seja, passa primeiro na rádio e depois é disponibilizado no cellecast, onde tambem pode ser ouvido em directo ou apenas depois, gravado?
