Please no ads baby Jesus
So you got the bandwidth costs then? Streaming video ain't cheap. Either gotta host on a site like Youtube (which will have ads), or have sponsors who help you out in return for shout-outs and ads, or just straight up charge for the content. One way or another, like it or not, money to host this sort of thing has gotta come from somewhere.

Main problem I can see is funding. Going to need a lot of bandwidth if it gets any popularity, so you'll have to do ads or get really creative to cover those costs. If you just did the donation model, there's the risk that it goes viral and next thing you know you're staring down a $1k hosting bill out of nowhere.
oh i'm not worried about bandwidth. everything will be hosted on external sites like twitch, youtube, and probably podbean for the audio version (which is only $10/mo). so really, no more bandwidth than what we're already using (which isn't much).

in other news, i got a nice microphone and some other odds and ends to make the quality a bit nicer, so just working out all the technological logistics right now, basically figuring out how all this will work.

i'll probably use discord for video conferencing and OBS to record that and stream it for the live show and just save the recording to put on youtube.

Sounds like a great idea & can cover different topics each week. Perhaps a segment for RVers/car-campers

i could use a few volunteers (2-3) to do a test with me in a video conference. i just need to figure out if my internet is going to be capable of streaming (upload) while downloading everyone's video feeds. requirements would be a webcam (any kind, doesn't matter) and the discord app (phone or desktop, either is fine) and the ability to meet up at a certain time.

on a side note, you can use the camera on your smart phone if you don't have a web cam, especially if you have the discord app on your phone (i need to test discord on the phone anyways).

I'm in. I have everything I need just gotta download discord just got a new laptop so I might fumble around for a minute but I'll figure everything out pretty quick I'm sure. I have an internet service technician coming out tomorrow and the next day I have court to hopefully see the dude who killed my nephew catch some justice. I could potentially be free later in the day on the 7th or wide open on the 8th, 9th, 10th and so on as far as I know. When are you thinking of trying it?

Oh today or tomorrow Umm I can try to get back here by around 9 tonight or tomorrow I can do it around the service tech I suppose. Or if you get other volunteers just grab em up.

I love the idea of a voicemail dropbox for topical segments.

I have some experience in audio editing if you are in need of help.
