Astonishing Legends TV01


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!

Tonight's Quote:

"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.

This is the only episode I didn't like. Because I did my monthly Facebook log and the first thing I saw was "just finished up live streaming on youtube" I missed it by minutes. Anyway here's what I would've liked to have said to you guys during the stream. After 14 hours of the oak island time sink and conversing with an odd gentleman named Bryan Germaine. The oak island mystery has been solved! They have recovered roughly 2,000,000 stuffed animals left behind on various road trips. 150,000 watches left to grandchildren. 50,000 love letters that were thought to have been destroyed by multiple fires. My Captain America action figure and my son's Lightning McQueen car he lost 3 months ago. And of course approximately 17 billion unmatched socks
