One of the things I enjoy most about live streaming apps like Meerkat and Periscope is the real-time aspect of the video, show or event. Imperfections in the audio and video content are the norm, and often times more interesting than rehearsed professionally shot videos. These factors together with real-time interactive viewer engagement are what make these interactive mediums so powerful.
Sometimes because of your surroundings, the ability to enhance your audio or video will help you preserve the realness of your live stream. Interviews of more than one person can be more easily shared using a clip on wide-angle or fisheye lens. External noise can be filtered out by using different microphone and audio options.

Chris Brogan and I did this interview on Super Bowl Sunday a few hours before kickoff. I think much of what we covered is applicable to almost anyone who owns and runs their own business. I hope you enjoy the interview.
Just in case you’re not familiar with Chris, is is the CEO of Owner Media Group, a highly sought after professional speaker and the New York Times bestselling author of eight books and counting, including The Freaks Shall Inherit the Earth, and Just Start Here.
I first became acquainted with Chris via his business development articles regularly featured in Forbes, The Boston Globe, Success, and USA Today. His popular newsletter and blog are also weekly business touching points that I highly recommend.
