Astonishing Legends makes digital media and internet history with our first ever “live” YouTube streaming event! Frankly, we weren’t sure any of it would work, so we really didn’t announce we’d be doing it, but we thought it might be a fun way to interact with our listeners and answer some of their questions in a text chat stream, all while doing our usual rambling, digressing, and nervous stammering. We really appreciate our audience, so we hope you enjoy it. Depending on how much “flame mail” we get, we might even try it again sometime!
“The internet is the first thing that humanity has built that humanity doesn’t understand, the largest experiment in anarchy that we have ever had.”
— Eric Schmidt, Executive Chairman of Alphabet Inc., the parent company of Google
