Robert Lee’s guest appearance on James Hick’s Digital Collective but first programming news.
Announcing a new streaming program
If you missed the announcement yesterday on Jame’s Hick’s program, the Digital Collective, the big announcement we shared exclusively with him is we are debuting a new monthly live streaming program with an international YouTube talent Xanthi Syrakou called, Pop Goes the Stream.
“Pop Goes the Stream” will air Thursday, December 2, 2021, at 3:00 PM EST. 9:00 PM in Sweden. on both her YouTube Channel and of course our own YouTube Channel as well.
It’s a series covering a diverse perspective in all things pop culture (leaning heavily on the nerdy/geeky side) in a pretty casual-cool laidback environment
Our show is inclusive and welcome to engage, interact, and entertain our viewers and listeners. This show will be multi-streamed with Xanthi’s YouTube channel.
Subjects will range from all aspects of pop culture (movie, tv, comics, gaming for starters), in various mediums video/audio, and much more.
Personally, for me, it is a nice change of pace from our usual topics and focuses on all things in pop culture with a heavy leaning to Geeky/Nerdy subjects.
As we get closer to the date, we’ll release more info.
Thoughts on Digital Collective appearance
If you missed The Digital Collective, you can catch the replay down below, A definite blast to be reunited with my former co-host of #verboseperspective as I’ve been on as a guest before. What stood out to me is how funny is to be reunited with another guest on the show. That was my former co-host of #verbosewednesdays, Matt Haas.
It’s a different dynamic for me not to have to split my attention wearing the TD (Technical Director) hat. I’ll admit it felt like having a day off as my sole focus is on the conversation. It was a nice change of pace where I didn’t need to man the switchers. No surprise that I can enjoy solely focusing on sharing my thoughts and tips, especially about the production Livestream software we use which is vMIx. When you watch the video, I mentioned some of the advantages of having vMix. One notably was the ability to incorporate seamless transitions. Browser streaming tools, ReStream or Streamyard lacks that capability.
The other topics I shared were finer points of tackling challenges of the workflow distributing your streams. That didn’t mean I didn’t contribute to the whacky hilarity to display some of the graphic work either illustrating a point or punching up a humorous point.
