Special Guest Rudy Ellis of Switchboard Live
This week's guest is Rudy Ellis, founder and CEO of Switchboard Live, a service that allows you to multi-publish your live stream to multiple destinations like Facebook Live, Periscope, YouTube, Twitch, etc.
Switchboard Live not only enables vloggers, YouTubers, and gamers to stream to multiple places, but they also work with some major organizations to capitalize on capturing eyeballs on a live streamed event. ESPN, X Games, Al Gore, Ultra Music Festival, and even Barack Obama's Farewell Address have relied on Switchboard Live. Take a listen to the above podcast to see how it all works.
