Live Streaming Basics

When Quarantine began the #1 question I got hit with the most was the Who, What, What, Where and Why of Live Streaming.

So, I set to work gathering as much info as I could about different streaming services, considerations and more. This was just the first phase of my explorations, so keep up with later videos as I go deeper into use.

We have had many more conversations about streaming since, but here is a good solid starter guide. This particular episode as well as the Podcasting 101 were recorded using Zoom in late March.

This is an evolving topic so I have no question we’ll be doing an updated Basics soon.
