My experience using webex for audio calls makes me think it's even more of
a pain.  My experience with it has been very poor.

If there's a system we can use that's large-scale audio + screencast, that
would be better than webex, but actually uses WebRTC so I could just go to
a webpage instead of installing something or calling in via PSTN and
punching numbers, that would be much better.
