We're batting around an idea....

We've had a lot of feedback on the live show from people who'd love to watch live, but can't at 1pm in the afternoon. So, we're thinking about doing a 're-broadcast' on LiveStream at 9pm on Tuesday nights, with a few members of the team in the studio. We'd chat live during the rebroadcast and come on camera between segments to answer questions and do whatever comes into our heads. Just wondering if this idea appeals to anyone?

The DIS Unplugged is a happy diversion in my week. But my work schedule prohibits me from watching the live show.

I would be more engaged with a rebroadcast and chat later in the evening.

I don't post here often but I'm a long time member of the DIS and long time listener. love the live shows even though I don't watch them "live." I understand and surely appreciate your desire to reach as many people as possible but I'm sure it's needed. I know the live show is your new toy but its still Christmas. I worry about it becoming a bit too much for you and the team. I'd hate to see you guys burn out or have the show become a chore. I know it's a lot of work as it is. Spend that time and energy on the new segments. 7 in 7 and the park bench is great! I'm looking forward to what you guys come up with next. The video shows have really opened up you guys creatively.

awesome idea!

reminds me of "after show" type stuff that radio shows and some tv shows do ... potential to be more casual, more interactive, more UNCENSORED! LOL, $15,000 delay!

Maybe I should proof before hitting post? Maybe? I forgot a not. I'm not sure the extra night show is needed. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure many people will love it. Neither time is convenient for me, but no matter what time you choose someone would be left out.

That could be fun, but that livestream chat doesn't seem to work too well. I kept getting knocked off over & over again.

But it certainly sounds like something fun to try.

I think that whatever you and your team are willing to take on will be fine by us!

But I would totally understand that it could become very daunting and time consuming and if it's not a permanent thing, then that's ok too!

I'd definitely tune in!!!

I watched you today on my plan time on my giant projection screen that I use for my SmartBoard and other teaching technologies. If I'd had my cell phone with me, I would've taken a pic of the huge Pete on my classroom wall!

Cool idea!
Maybe not necessary every week, but maybe once a month for those of us not always available in the middle of the day.

For me being in europe the show is on at 7pm and I just love that! For the first time I can be a part of a live event and it's so nice!! Whatever you decide I just want to say I think it is so typical of you Pete to try and make all of us happy so thank you for that .

Watched my first live session yesterday and really enjoyed it. (Sorry I missed the earlier ones - I was kind of occupied by being at WDW!)

I think the re-broadcast is a good thing to try but I don't know how many viewers it will attract. What I really like about the idea is the ability to interactively "chat" with some of the team. Kind of like the call-in shows you've done but with pictures.

I love the podcast and have been LOVING the live shows. Thanks to my schedule, I'm usually able to watch live on Tuesdays. However, this Tuesday, I needed to step away for a bit. So I watched the video later. It was still as awesome as watching live!

Whatever you folks want to do is fine with me but, like others have said, don't burn yourselves out! You guys are amazing as is!
