Hey there LBR listeners! It’s Aniero here with an exciting announcement about the future of Limit Break Radio. First, I’d like to say thank you for your continued support and listenership as we get the show back up and running. We’re having a great time doing the show again and the feedback we’ve been getting from you guys has been really great. The emails, tweets, Facebook messages, iTunes reviews, Reddit PM’s, /tells and live stream chats have been fantastic. Clearly, Limit Break Radio has the best listeners on the internet. And because we think our listeners are so awesome we want our listeners to become more involved with Limit Break Radio.
So it is with great pleasure that I announce that starting with Episode 6 Limit Break Radio will be live streaming the show over Twitch.tv
So while we think Tweeting and emailing and Facebooking with the show are all great ways to get involved we here at Limit Break Radio would like to take this one step further. Because the show will be live streamed we would also like to invite our listeners to call in to the show over Skype and/or a regular telephone* and actively add to the discussions being had on the air. The process is pretty simple.
First, tune in at the designated day/time of a live LBR show at our official Twitch.tv page
Then, either send a Skype message to ‘limitbreakradio’ with your name or character name and server OR dial 810-515-8715
From there you will be placed on hold until we can take your call
Easy, no? Well, easy for you. It’s actually kind of technically complicated on our end. But it’s not like this is the first time we’ve done this, Limit Break Radio hosted a call-in show back in 2007 with Limit Break Radio’s Spectacular Annual Platinum Extravaganza Edition Call-In Bonanza Special. We had so much fun doing that episode and have always wanted to incorporate it into the overall show. This seems like a good time to do that. We look forward to hearing from you.
We’re not JUST live streaming the main talk show, we’re also doing occasional game play streams on our Twitch.tv channel, which we recommend subscribing to so you’ll be alerted of these streaming sessions. As as a result of doing these streams and learning the streaming software, the show will take on a slightly more visual element. We will still have the podcast and the iTunes and RSS feeds and the show won’t change much from what we already do, but checking out the show on Twitch.tv or YouTube will be more visually entertaining the the current videos that only feature the LBR Logo as a visual.
The way we record the show, we record one long show and cut it into 3 parts and release those over a series of weeks, but for those that tune in to the live show: you will get to hear all 3 parts live as they’re recorded. No waiting a week between episode parts. Bonus!
Last thing, I swear. We’ve updated the LBR website to include a Watch section where you can find our live Twitch stream, info on the next planned broadcast date/time and the Twitch chat. We’ve also updated the Listen page to make XIV shows easier to sort and find as well as our Links page and About page to contain current information.
Once again I want to thank everyone for their support of Limit Break Radio. It’s been a great couple of months and we look forward to bringing you more great Final Fantasy XIV podcasting!
