I want to organise a podcast with some friends, with a gradual release schedule. We're about 6 people who meet up personally, but we can't get productive enough in our meetups, so we decided to use online solutions for sharing our speech's sketches and similar things, all regarding the podcast.

Until today, the only thing we have seriously tried is Google's collaborative tools, but they seem to be really distracting, and way too complex for the kind of organisation we need, which is rather simple.

What software should I use to interact with all the colaborators, including occasional guests (having in mind that not all of them are tech-savvy)?

    Try Skype, Google Docs/Spreadsheets, Google Talk, Google Sites, etc. They all serve different purposes from maintaining documentation to real time chat with collaborators. Also, check out other questions under the pm-software tag, as there is a wealth of suggestions already posted on what to use to manage projects and release schedules. Good luck! – jmort253 May 6 '12 at 20:29
  • thanks for the tips! I hope the question is more concise now. I'm afraid we've already tried Google software, but we failed. – Eneko Sarasola May 6 '12 at 20:37

During the last couple of years (enterprise and startup) the google docs + skype was the best combination I've used and seen.

a shared Dropbox (or similar service) might be an alternative. With the desktop client, is syncs between the service and each individuals computer, so everybody has all info readily available.
