Watch Our First Live Recording of Ratchet and the Geek from Portland
Hey folks! I’ve been in Portland, Oregon all week because I was invited to speak at the NeighborWorks Symposium. I presented on “Creating Great Content for Social Media: A Strategy Workshop. Had a great time giving this workshop.
Anywho, my friend and podcast co-host Scott Hanselman lives in Portland so I went over to his crib and had dinner with his awesome family. Scott cooked us some chicken curry with brown rice. Chef Shansel was in the house.
We used the opportunity to record a new episode of our Ratchet and the Geek podcast, which we started October 2012 and cover all things pop culture, TV and technology. We planned on doing it every two weeks but our schedules get crazy and *I* suck with consistency so… yeah. The last episode we recorded was a month ago. We were long overdue for a new one.
So yesterday, not only did we record the audio for the show, we actually streamed video of it live on YouTube for folks to watch. We did it late (around 8pm PT, which is 11pm EST) so we didn’t expect a lotta people to tune in. We were surprised though that people did, and we don’t know the exact number of those who did yet but there are 37 comments on the video.
Check us out below as we do the most random (and the longest) version of our podcast yet. Usually, each episode is 30-40 minutes long and this one is an hour. We talk about Kim Kardashian and her drapery dress, Brandy, my love of Clear internet, our big foreheads and other truly random stuff. Watch it below.
P.S. The first 10 minutes of the vid are me and Scott tryna figure out buttons and keyboard and stuff.
So what did y’all think of our live show? Want us to do it more often?
