Don’t Cast the Streams!

Happy Monday to you all!

Player’s Guide is back again to brighten the week ahead. On this episode, Jackson and Daniel are discussing streaming. The ability to get your media – whether it be movies, television, or music – whenever you want it has fundamentally changed the way that we consume.

There few things that have impacted both creators and fans as heavily as access to streaming services and streaming websites have. Your hosts take a look at how they have experienced some of those changes and what a future dictated by Netflix, YouTube, and Twitch might look like.

Also, some recommendations:

This week you should watch Thirteen Reasons Why 

This week you should watch Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu

Hey everyone!

This is a very special episode of Player’s Guide. We are celebrating our third anniversary. Three years of cranking out content made us feel like we had earned the right to talk about ourselves for an episode.

This is a retrospective, a peek at what’s coming next, and a long-form introduction.

A long-form introduction because, as of this Tuesday, we are going to be launching on a new platform. The folks at http://www.aybonline.com have reached out to us and we have formed a new partnership. From now on, you can find the Player’s Guide on their website, and their website linked on our front page.

While you’re cruising over there to slake your curiosity, you should also check out some of their great articles.

Our new state of symbiosis is not the only big news. You may have noticed that we have a brand new link to a TwitchTV channel on our front page. While we’re still working out the finer details, we are hoping that from here on out, we can incorporate some streaming content into our routine.

Whew, that’s the longest episode write-up I have ever had to do. But I think I would be remiss if I ended there. We would like to say thank you to the listeners and the guests that have made the past three years a blast. Your encouragement and enthusiasm has meant a lot; here’s to three more.

Oh, and here’s the episode:

EDIT: I should also mention, this episode contains detailed spoilers for the ending of The Walking Dead season 6.
