burnie Cast & Crew
Go for launchToday, we start our new livestream podcasts and I am very excited to be a part of this debut. I just want to make a couple of things clear -- the first is that this will not change the delivery of our regular audio podcast. That will still go up on our website & on iTunes every Wednesday for everyone. We may have some moments that are inherently "more video" than others and we may edit those out just to keep from annoying our audio-only listeners.

I also want everyone to understand that this is an evolving product. We have ideas for what we want to accomplish but like every other production we make at Rooster Teeth, this is a moving target. Right now the plan for the live broadcast is for Sponsors only. This will help us limit the amount of equipment we need and slow the interaction from listeners during the show so we can actually make sense of it all. After that, the video archive will be available for Sponsors and the audio version will be publicly available at the usual time. And most importantly, all of that may and probably will change. If you are sponsoring just for the podcast, don't get your feelings hurt if one or more of those features opens up to the public in the future. Like I said, this is an evolving product and your participation is part of that evolution.

And as always, if you have any complaints about your Sponsorship you can direct them to us via email. In my nine years as CEO of RT, I don't recall a single time when we rejected a request for a refund for any reason. I am sure that spirit continues under Matt's reign. We want your support because you enjoy the content we produce -- that's part of the deal.

Now if you'll excuse me, I have to get in makeup for my big video debut. No way I am going to look worse than Gus. See you in a few hours.

Great idea..but not functioning. Now 20 minutes into the podcast and I can't even load the page. Just a never ending stream of people posting stupid remarks.

Oh how I wish I was a sponsor..

I like it how y'all have become just like every other company you have fans you hardly talk to and when we do you don't respond. I understand your busy and stuff but please be more involved with the public. I almost can't watch y'alls videos anymore because I know I'll never get to know y'all personally.

It's not that they don't want to, it's that they literally can't.

When I joined the site most of the staff were pretty active in the forums. Burnie and Joel were in the sports section a lot. The interest hasn't gone away, it's just that they've grown so much the de...

Furthermore! Look at the cast and crew list. I know that Ben, Barbara, Michael, Jordan, Luke McKay, Caleb, Nico, Gavino, Eddy, Fragger, and Becca were all fans and site members before being hired on. That's 12/41 total people are from this site because of their contributions, knowledge, and repu...

You stepped down as CEO? You're not planning on retiring soon are you?

No no, he just became full time creative director.

Side note: As of right now, the website is moving EXTREMELY slow, this is probably because of the live stream. might want to take this into consideration.

The live stream was great once the sound got fixed, but the chat was just pointless. It goes by way too fast to be of any use whatsoever.

Well, that chat was defiantly the biggest mess I've ever seen.

It was chock full of subduction, though. That's a plus.

Well I'm super fucking bummed. It took 10 minutes to start working and then died 15 minutes later and i never got anything else. So fucking depressing. Just the chat stream, no video and no audio.

"...slow the interaction from listeners during the show so we can actually make sense of it all."

Yeah, chat went by incredibly fast. Not sure how you'll deal with this!! :/
#74  Posted 1 year ago
As a nonsponsor, I get why you have it sponsors only with the whole livechat going on and keeping up with that and all, never thought of it from that angle. Still bummed that I can't watch the livestream but hopefully going to get a sponsorship very soon and these livestreams are all the more incentive to just buy the sponsorship.

I thought it went well, few mic hiccups but that's to be accepted, good job guys. What were you drinking tonight?
#76  Posted 1 year ago
You're so silly, Burnie, thinking you can fool us!

...everybody knows the podcast is on Wednesday...
#77  Posted 1 year ago
Drunk Tank is one of the best parts of my week, and i can only see this making it better.

The livestream podcast was awesome. It would be better if there was a place to put questions in a separate area instead of asking them on chat.
#79  Posted 1 year ago  |  + 1 Ditto
Seriously had a lot of fun watching the live podcast this week (despite some random white noise here and there and technical difficulties on my side)! Seems like I'll have to make Tuesdays my podcast day from now on. Looking forward to next week's stream!

Will the video archive for sponsors be uncut? I will be at work for this, but dont want to miss stuff that was cut for the audio version...
#85  Posted 1 year ago
Sadly I wont be able to see the video podcasts because from what I heard its for the sponsers only. I have the problem where I cant get a sponser ship due to no money so.....yeah
#86  Posted 1 year ago
I'm glad that you guys are at least considering making the video podcast available to non-sponsors, because I was incredibly hyped for this up until I learned I wouldn't be able to afford it.
#87  Posted 1 year ago
I love you guyssss! I'm so sorry I missed it... can't wait to see it tomorrow.

And Burnie... please promise us you'll never die.

I'm cool with all of that as long as the video version will be archived. Don't want to miss out on all the fun! In bed during the live stream you see.
