it would not be hard to do this through IRC.

However, people would need to learn IRC, and it may not be
available to everyone.

We could set up several hours some day.  probably a weekend.
Maybe with a large time window (12 hours?), so that it could
"flow" across several time zones?? The first person "on" could
look for a session called theos (or theosophy) and start it if it
didn't exist already.  It would be perhaps good to start it in a
time-zone where we know several people will be looking for it??
or else the dedicated few could get it going regularly, and let
it evolve??

i'll check out IRC, I haven't used it much.

does the person who starts the session have to "stay on" the
whole time as an owner (assume a Public session)??

peace -
