This Sunday the 6th(tomorrow) at 9pm, we'll air our first live round table discussion show.
There is room for 10 participants.

The Google Hangout link to join & participate will be posted on the home page of letsblues.com shortly before the show is supposed to air. That is also where you can watch the stream live if you do not want to or can't participate.

What you need to participate:
- Microphone
- Webcam
- Google+ account
- Decent internet connection
- Or, you can use your smart phone. The Google Hangout app will do the entire thing and you can participate that way. (Dunno if it is available for iOS.)

If you purchased a laptop/netbook in the past 5 or 6 years, those features are probably already built in. Then you just need a Google+ account...and if you have a gmail account, you already have a Google+ account, you just need to use it to log in.

I have no idea how this is going to go. But we'll do it and see what happens.
I think it can be a lot of fun to talk hockey with you guys in this manner.

A couple tips:
- Try to be in a well lit room...and have the majority of the light behind the webcam. Too much light behind you or not enough light in general will make you dark and hard to see and make for a crappy video stream from you.
- Use headphones. If you just use your computer speakers, the mic will pick that up and there will be an echo coming from your mic.
- Have fun.

After the show is over, it will be archived and available for viewing as part of past episodes of the show.

I hope to see a lot of you guys there!

Is there anyway for us to participate without a webcam? My laptop is out of commission right now

It actually does work without a webcam but it does make it difficult for others to know who is talking. I encourage you to still participate, though.

Unfortunately, I cannot make it tonight. I have a hockey game. If I get home from my game and you guys are still going, I'll jump on for sure.

Have fun everybody!

If you have a mic, you can participate.
Or, I guess...if you don't have a mic either, you can still use the in Hangout chat and type your responses...but that would be weird. But hey, if that's what you want to do...give it a go. The worst that would happen is we ignore you. :grin:

Well, zero participants during our first stab at this.
I guess it didn't help that I had the wrong participation link up for like 15 minutes. :lol: :x

I think this is a good idea, and will be a lot of fun for those who join in to talk hockey...so we'll try it again. Don't be scared...just jump in, say hey, and give your opinions on stuff.

We'll try it again next week. I'll give a bit more notice as well...and I'll post the right link next time.

That sucks man. To be honest, it was the amount of notice for me. If I would have know by Thursday, I would have skipped my hockey game because that would have been sufficient time for my team to find a sub.

I'm all for doing this next time as long as it matches my schedule.

I thought there was going to be a way to watch/listen after the fact? Youtube recording or something? I've looked but couldn't find anything.

Well, since nobody participated, there was no show.
Kind of hard to have a round table discussion with just one person at the table.

Are you kidding? Those are the best kind! You're always the smartest person in the room!

Seriously, I would like to participate, but Sunday night at 10pm Eastern is not a good time.

Yep, sorry I couldn't make it either. Sunday at 9 is a little tough for me too. I know it'll be tough to get a time that works for everyone, but yeah, if we get an advance warning, it might be easier to set aside some time to do this.

If it wasn't so late I'd maybe consider participating, but 10 PM EST is kind of tough when one has a job.

Edit: I think no one showed up because they were worried sseagle would be participating shirtless.

That can be arranged...and I actually have Frosted Flakes in the house. I hear they're great.
