How to produce your own webinar with Glen Aspeslagh
"My guess is a CO founder of the popular all in one lie shooting production platform e Cam live. Please welcome Glen Asper slay. Hello Glen Haven Alley. How's it going? Oh super good now. Here's what's kind of funny is thank you so much for appearing on the show in such short notice I was actually working with the CAM. Live and I making do things that I'm sure you really didn't think of it to be designed for now going from a Mac to a PC I just I literally just push. This thing passed its limit. The maximum is not as powerful. Your tech support is absolutely phenomenal. I shot I shot them a message on a chat and within like ten minutes later they said. Just tell me what you want to accomplish. I wrote down. Here's the answer and within I'd probably say thirty minutes I had a perfect answer and a solution and I called my producer to tell them how exciting that was that often that we have down so anyways I very very excited and for those of you. That are listening. I'm sure a lot of you've watched our webinars on focus and even on Sky Lem and were using e Cam live and a lot of listeners. Been asking us. You know what platform using so who better to answer all of our questions that the CO founder Glen. You actually program too. Don't you Y- Is a small operation. Really my brother and I founded it My brother Ken and I are just Mack guys since birth and Matt Programmers. Ever since we were you know I guess ten years old. Wow so it it. It's like It's just our thing we've always done. We've always done software and we've been doing MAC software fulltime for. I guess ten years now. I loved your interaction with each other when you did the when. He launched the new versions. And you had a you guys got together you did. You did a little interaction I can tell you two brothers nothing I mean we we we love. We love doing that because we used to do. We do live on a cable. Show back when you know. Towns have public access cable studios so wondering when we were in high school we would do a show so you know twenty five years later when our marketing team wanted us to go actually go on camera we were like? Hey you know this is like old times. So so. Who's the older brother? Who's the older? You were a key candidates five minutes older. Oser your wanted twins but he always he always will deadpan. You Know No. We're the same age. That's what twins me someone asks. Well well I'm the youngest of six children in a in a very strong Italian Catholic family. So you can guess all the pranks and stuff were were taken out on. Me's the youngest child of that's awesome. We we love being on camera together when we love. We love this Having all these these numbers in and having a product that is just sorta center centered around. Social media is is just so much fun. Because it's it. It's not just the software in the coding and the technical things We just having a lot of fun. You know building a community and in doing videos and and making content. There's this the whole hoping of suspense such a blast. Great let's get to our topics and Topic is how to produce your own Webinar or stream live to facebook and to youtube and different platforms So what what was the purpose of designing e Cam live pretty excited about live streaming. When it first started to when facebook spurs started to promote their facebook product. We saw this as an opportunity to make a really user friendly Mac out to do live streaming and remember. I said Mac out because we don't do windows APPS We'RE NOT DOING. Iphone is tied right now. This is only on the map and we thought we had this background in audio and visual software. We can make this really slick easy to use APP. That just works really well and does one thing and does it well and that was what we wanted to tackle was this idea of of of live streaming really now a lot about live streaming gumming in like a really really cool thing to do. Well you guys definitely nailed it not ballpark So what are we talked about? Some of the features of Kim live now from my perspective. I can see from a designing phase. It's really simple to use. How did you guys come up with that? We wanted to do this. Sort of what you see is what you get interface. You know what I mean like when you go into can live you see. The main window is just an image of you of you. You know you whatever you see on that man windows exactly what your audience is. GonNa see so. That was the first thing we wanted to approach. We also wanted to have it really tightly integrated with facebook and in and then afterwards we added Youtube. It was originally thought of as a facebook product where with live streaming. I'm sure you're familiar with the concept. The best stream key and what a bit rate is and what you know. Resolutions and stuff. We wanted to sort of abstract that really sort of apple style. You know what I mean and say like we don't want people that need to notice Jim he is or what their bit rate is. We want to ask them questions like like that. We just want us to have a big blue button after you log in the facebook and you can go live on. You definitely definitely accomplished. I came from. I'm trying to think of the the platform now. It's a free software. I had a tip of my tongue. I lost it but so for three. One opiates Oh bs thank you. Yes yes yes. It's yes it's great but again like you just said you have to know your stream key. You have to know a lot of the stuff behind the scenes and that's just a little complicated and once you get the hang of it. It was fine but it looked to me like you took no. Bs Concept and just laid beautiful interface on top of it and said you don't need to know any of this other stuff. Click here if you WANNA go live. Click here if you want to just practice and publish it to yourself. So you know there was a lot of neat things. I've noticed for ease of use the way it was designed that that was a that was a big focus and then but then. I you know it started out really simple. The core feature is going live to facebook. Rolling prerecorded videos adding overlays and And screen sharing so those were the core features and then. Ironically you know when we started you know building a user base week people were were asking for features like crazy and we decided you know. Let's have some fun start having let's try and keep it really simple. You know not not make it into this big overwhelming. Why are cast or obese or something like that keep the interface really simple and yet still make it more and more powerful so now three years later it is has grown into this sort of full featured live streaming studio in. Our hope is that it's still. It's still easy to use and we didn't intimidate anyone no but multiple cameras which I thought was fascinating. I like the idea. You've ever boat gas via skype. So and I know we're using the software where we're using it more like a Webinar base. Where I'm teaching and I know you said in the beginning you ought to use it. So people can show demos and show to Tourelles I'm finding able to use it as a production to where I can't have. A couple of guests would be live from all over the country and they could share their demos so I switched to somebody like Abbas Shapiro. And so you know it's your turn. Show us what you would do with this image and Aiba takes over the screen and now all of us are watching his demo and then control come back to me and that I could switch it off to another person now. Was that stuff that you thought about the beginning or it just evolved into it. That kind of Kennedy came along a just kind of a bald The integration with SKYPE IS NEAT. Because it's it's it's not really it's not a hack at all skype. Has this concept of sending out the video sources of over the over an MD. I connection so we can tie that. They're Li seamlessly and like you said if if someone else's remote and they wanNA share their screen over skype that comes into ECON lab just like a camera. So you know you you plug a camera in Birmingham live at shows. Up this medically the same thing happens for a skype guest orest Guest sharing their screen so while there are kind of moving parts to the setup of doing Escape production once you have it all set at. Its It's pretty seamless and easy to switch around and punt and split screens and determine what we've what you want to be on the screen at any given time
Esper on the role of the military amid the coronavirus crisis
"More than twenty years now I've been interviewing various secretaries of defense that official overseas millions of uniformed and civilian personnel stationed around the world so when he agrees to meet you talk in person and you go to him typically you go to the Pentagon to the secretary's office which is long and narrow like the deck of an aircraft carrier and seems only slightly smaller when we talked with defense secretary mark esper yesterday it was different asper has shut down the movement of U. S. troops in ordered social distancing the rules apply to asper himself and limit the people in his office so we spoke by phone S. birth is a veteran a one time army officer well known in Washington after his military service he worked as a staff member in the Senate and for the defense contractor Raytheon his job now is to help fight the pandemic while also monitoring other threats how do you define the military's mission in this crisis I've identified three priorities for the United States military now in the few months that we've been dealing with the Kobe nineteen party number one is take care of our service members are civilians and their families property number to safeguard our mission capabilities those things we need to protect the nation the number three provide full support to the whole of government whole nation effort being directed by president trump yes it's interesting that number three there is helping the civilian population does that reflect what the priorities have to be you have to be ready to have a force that is ready to enact its normal mission yeah I I you know national security remains number one I think the American people expected all times we're going to defend them from adversaries beyond our shores and protect our interests abroad and to do that we have to take care of our service members that's our most important resource our most valuable asset our people and so I got to take care of them first we know you're sending seal hospitals we know that you're sending hospital ships to some of the worst hit areas but do you really have significant medical resources available given the scale of this problem yeah that's a great question and the fact is we we really don't do what we have great capacity force planning and logistics and things like that when it comes to supporting civilian authorities but in terms of of hospitals we have a limited capacity maybe a few thousand beds if you will at most to provide because keep in mind that most of our capacity are deployable field hospitals geared toward treating trauma patients so their structure configured that way not in terms of supporting a person's with infectious diseases by the same token a majority of our military doctors and nurses and other medical professionals are reservists who also have civilian jobs in the same field so we're very conscious as we deployed both the assets and the people that we're not taking somebody from a civilian hospital working with Kobe nineteen patients in one part of country to another part of the country to deal with the same problems are you also having to withhold some resources because you don't know how big a corona virus outbreak you might face there is that and I need to make sure I retain some capacity for deployable force in case we get some type of conflict somewhere there was a commander at a big U. S. base in South Korea who sealed the base and has been praised sense because if I'm not mistaken there was only one corona virus case there even when there was a serious outbreak in South Korea since then of course there are hundreds of other coronavirus cases within the U. S. military and various other parts of the world how do you evaluate the military's job at protecting itself against this outbreak in the last couple of months it generate rooms it has done a great job of recreation and he helped this update our plans with regard to how you deal with corona virus and how it spread so we've been able to put a brake on the spread at this point time of the hundreds of thousands of military persons out there we have thank goodness only two hundred twenty seven cases right now it's two hundred twenty seven more than I would prefer to have and I've been able to call up and talk to a few of the service members but I think the policies and actresses we put in place of held us in good stead right now
What Really Happened at the Munich Security Conference
"I today. We're going to learn a NE- word Westland snus. It is the idea that the West is somehow absent from the global stage less significant in part because of the rise of China in part because of the rise of DONALD TRUMP IT C- theme of this year's Munich security conference in which Germany's president said. The United States now rejects even the idea of an international community. That's walls intern rejected by the secretary of state. Does anyone believe Mike upon payers denials? David Hudson h-honestly chief Brussels correspondent at politico and was at the security conference joins me now on the line. Dave dimension the The theme being West Listeners. How did this manifest itself at the conference? There was a lot of discussion and there is every year at the Munich security conference about the decline of the West the fretting over where that Western alliance the transatlantic relationship is. But there is something quite different that everybody could feel this year. Which is that the gap between the Europeans and the Americans is so much greater than anyone has seen it in our lifetimes. And that's really what they're talking about is the idea of a unified west which you could include. Even some eastern partners like Japan into but the idea of rule of law and a the NATO alliance and the idea of collective action on the biggest issues facing people all over the world. And that just doesn't exist right when now you add up the three years of Donald Trump's presidency. Us obviously headed to an election. And you look at everything from climate policy to the Iran. Nuclear deal whether it's unsecurity whether it's on the environment anywhere you look there are just these gaps and so the secretary of state. Mike Pompeo you know folks were sitting with their hands in their laps tapping on their phones but not one drop of applause when he declared the West is winning normally. That should bring everybody to their feet. They're all there to represent different aspects of that western thinking and in fact crickets silence. The justice no faith that any of those words mean anything. I mentioned the president of Germany amendment to our frontal steinmeier was very outspoken. When my Pompeo is there is the? Us Senate acted as if an attitude of every man for himself could work a global policy. You Have Emmanuel macron that saying that there was a need to act at a European level to counter this perceived weakening of an alliance with the US but does Europe have the capacity yet to speak with one voice. Well you're obviously has its own disagreements and the chairman of the conference Ish Sugar warned against this. As did remarkably the secretary general of NATO Jens Stoltenberg who rarely rarely ever diverges from his talking points about unity where he warned in. This seemed to be directed at macron not to talk down the capabilities of NATO and talk up the differences among allies but there are clear differences among these allies and of course trump is responsible for a lot of them when you see the US pull out unilaterally in northeast Syria when you see the US in Turkey both NATO members forced to reach some kind of a peace agreement among themselves. You say what's going on here. Those are countries that are supposed to be on the same side. So you're Ab- certainly has differences that it needs to resolve but on big ticket items especially the priority that everyone agrees is facing the entire planet on Climate Change. Europe does in fact speak almost universally with one voice small exceptions about timing and how to get to certain goals but overall the goals are the same trump of course pulls out of that climate accord pulls out of the Iran nuclear deal. He's gone his own way. I sat down with a few callings and NATO Supreme Allied Commander Todd Walters and you hear him speak and you realize that there's an American mindset especially when it comes to the Middle East that no one else. Shares trump pushing for NATO to be more active in the Middle East which goes against the founding treaty of NATO The Washington Treaty which says these are countries at work together in the Euro Atlantic sphere. And I said to the general said this is in your title your Supreme Allied Commander Europe. Is that going to change? We become sec or me to add in the Middle East and there's no clear message. That Defense Secretary Asper was at NATO before coming to the Munich. Security Conference did not give those NATO allies. A sense of what it is that Donald Trump is looking for and again in Munich. The sort of conclusion was okay. Mike Pompeo and Marcus were there speaking to the boss back home telling him. The West is winning when nobody actually sees that David stay with us because also the line is Paul Rogers professor of Peace Studies at the University of Bradford while we were mentioning With David other the reaction to Mike Pompeo's speech the problem. I suppose is that the US Secretary of state goes to me and you can says no no trans. Atlantic alliance is as strong as it ever was but but he's bosses given every impression for four years now that he doesn't care at all about America's strategic partnerships. I think that's really a key issue. It's very much longer allies. David was just saying what has happened. I think is the Europeans for the first two years of the trump administration still tend to think this was an operation in the American political scene over the last year in particular the last couple of months they country is that trump may well get reelected emphatic present. He probably will do even if he isn't They feel as being a change in the American mood. That the change of the psalter political psychology even of the country and that is represented by trump and the many people who support him. So you have that the other thing as far as I can see within the United States so you basically have two things going on at the same time you had the contract trump vision but you have the more length assists vision and that apparently was very well represented a community at Munich. Many people from Congress many of the State Department people even those states is pretty weak present with much more on the traditional side but they basically differ from what is coming out trump. And frankly whether we like it or not. The American the Europeans dude actually listen to trump's tweets and take them very seriously so I think you you have this sort of basic difference and then looming all of that are the differences within Europe. Basically mechanised particularly weak at present. You have Britain opting out so to speak and then of course you have the China situation as well. Whether it's a difference I think between the European and the American views. The trump views that he let me put it that way. David Paul just mentioned China and Mike Pompeo talked again about the the the US's from a growing Increasingly increasingly assertive. China is Europe. Going to be on board with that top priority. I survey the citizens done ahead of this conference. The studio what size should your beyond worthy to be a full on conflict within the US and China on the majority of the citizens who questions that actually Europe should be neutral. You know a lot of this. Debate centered around technology and the Chinese firm alway which the US The trump administration has made clear that it seems as a real risk and trump was quite roundly rebutted on that by Germany by the UK even the UK which of course has to negotiate a trade deal coming up with the United States and one of the message. One message that the Americans were carrying back from the European side was qualify. Has Technology that the West if you WANNA call it? That doesn't have so in that sense. You're not winning. And the question is what alternative. Can you offer either? You let Europe and the United States be left behind on five G. or you work with wallet or you have some alternative now. The alternatives are not easy chatter about. Could there be a state investment. Something's very un-american into Nokia or Ericsson but the point is if there is a technology that China has and everybody else doesn't it's clear the West has fallen a stepper a half step behind in that sense but since you have Paul there who's who's talking about peace studies. There's another gap we saw in Munich. Which has some really big big issues that this conference used to focus on that because of what one former Senator Sam Nunn? I talked to called vivid all these sort of flashes and disagreements in In politics we're forgetting about the vital nuclear non-proliferation the fact that most of the non-proliferation architecture has been falling apart under trump the IMF treaty intermediate range. Nuclear forces. Treaty doesn't exist anymore. The new start treaty is going to expire in February. And what are these powers going to do to protect citizens from what is one of the greatest threats out there? Paul What do you? What do you make of that idea? That a lot of other issues as simply being forgotten at the moment I couldn't agree. More than Davis spot. On the nuclear thing I think is much more important than people generally realizes rather receded but there are two other issues gained one. He mentioned with climate change. This is the Big Issue Weld Wahid for the next two years it actually surpasses everything else and yes. The Europeans are more united on this which I think is very welcome as he said with a few exceptions but the United States takes a very different view as well. Brazil China to some extent endangered in Australia and set me. Russia isn't a weld unity. On this the most important issues. What in the world. The other thing I'd say is that while the kind of world economic model we have at present is delivering a great deal for relatively small number of people you got more and more people pretty well educated on the margins who do not fair sharing in in what they deserve and you're seeing this in the many political disturbances social disturbances seen in cities across the world last six to nine months in the recent past That again just doesn't fig you have these very big issues. Marginalization climate change on the nuclear issue which to not get the attention they deserve and that I think is one of the things where to some extent The whole Munich conference thing which is now being running. What nearly sixty years. Something like that Is Not really fully fit for purpose even though it may be better than the past let me just ask you both briefly before we before we end I read. I read one piece about the miniskirt weekend that said law international orders never last forever a maybe this is just the beginning of the end of the Post Second World War transatlantic order. I mean body. Think some some logic behind that there is some logic behind that and of course if it means the start of anew globalism a willingness to address Commonwealth problems. That would be good but the problem. Is that the men. We don't have that In fact the divisions at great sesame there things are changing and it will depend a Fab it I think on whether trump gets reelected in December but things are changing and one has to accept that we simply don't know whether go but there is a need for much more globalist attitude when David it does seem to all hinge. Doesn't it on what happens in America in November? Well there is a big question of if that old order is falling apart. What is the New Order? That take shape right. The world is smaller than ever people are more interconnected than ever so the great powers don't necessarily need to dictate things but we also saw at Munich. I said it was a lot of navel-gazing but not a lot of introspection. Yeah there was a report in The Washington Post Enter last year that twenty years of American failure in Afghanistan you would think at a security conference where the US is seen as the leader on security and defence issues. Folks would be asking. Hey what the heck happened there? How did you drag us all into this mess? And how do you avoid that going forward into the future and those kinds of tough questions again? The vivid trump was very much fretted about but the vital of how do you avoid getting sucked into twenty years of failed war where neither Afghanistan nor Iraq nor anybody else's better off? You have to wonder. Why weren't those tough questions being asked and who will start to shape that new order to replace the old order? That's falling away David Harrison on and Paul Rogers thank you both very much of your time

In the face of him and Joe Biden is in trouble and to the Joe Biden is hanging on just fine and predicts trouble in November for the president.

We're both from Winnipeg. The business school got me from is the Asper school of business. So it's named after his family. So I was like, you know what? I don't wanna job. I just wanna to give him some advice because I know how the businesses you can get swerved or whatever can happen. And I, we never ended up connecting. Meanwhile, I'm doing my new Japan thing. I ended up putting together the Kenya. Mega Chris Jericho main event at the Tokyo dome for new Japan, which which made them a lot of money. Yeah. Wow.

This is what I think of it. You know, I I know there's been issues here for many years, so it's like, well, this is what I would do if Scott and I were running it, you know, just kind of pitched it and you know. Nice, nice. It's always those situations where you don't need the gig that it works out. Yes, it was kinda like just like, well, I hope something comes of this, but ultimately. If it doesn't, what was it the you patched? Was it this? Like what about the vision that we see an impact now? You know, I think I think you know, it's just I don't remember the specifics, but I think if you look at, I mean, there was stuff going on that was you know stuff that is, why would anybody do this? So it's like, let's eliminate that stuff. Let's eliminate bad promo segments. You know, let let's eliminate like, you know, really over the top hokey stuff. Let's try to eliminate bad wrestling. Let's be cognizant of who were putting belts on things like that. And you know, obviously like I'd kind of come out of a time capsule in the sense that I hadn't watched wrestling at all. And it's like, now I come back and I'm like, well, you know, there's people drawing lots of money by having. No storylines in a bunch of people doing flips and dives and stuff. It's like, okay, well, how do we acknowledge that the businesses different than an old one when I kind of got out of it and now and and I love. All the lettuce ISM, but it's like, hey, listen, let's let's work on. Look, I think no one would say that that overall in the entire business that the promo ability is better than it was saying the nineties when I was in New York or CW. So it's like, okay, well, how do I, how do I work with talent to to do character development to help them to be better promos and that sort of thing.

"This wasn't effort by the Trump administration to give the impression that the Iranian American community by large support his very belligerent policy and reality is the majority of your body Americans do not. Are you saying that the audience for the Mike Pompeo? The talk was basically the deck l'estaque. I mean, who were those Iranian Americans that were there? I'm afraid even though many of them were there out of curiosity, they serve didn't believe that attending would be tantamount to supporting with Pumpido was saying. But I think many of them were used to come across as support for the administration. This is reminding me very much of what happened during the Bush years when the Bush administration in in the run-up to the war in Iraq in their effort to try to convince the American public to support the invasion were parading Iraqis in Iraqi Americans on TV begging the United States to bomb Iraq. I think most people. In the American community do not want to play that role for the Trump administration. So let's listen to a little bit more from secretary pump. His speech yesterday, the Ronald Reagan presidential library, and then I want to get your reaction to this. I recognize the Iranian day Asper is diverse, but I think everyone can agree that the regime in Iran has been a nightmare Therion people and is important that your unity on that point is not diminishing diminished by differences elsewhere to our raining American and Iranian American friends. Tonight I wanna tell you that the Trump administration dreams the same dreams for the people overrun as you do and through our labours and God's providence that day will come true. So true diplomacy. What's your reaction to that? Like as an Iranian American? Do you agree that Iran's leadership has been a nightmare for the Iranian people? Oh, I think events, majority of art community would be very, very much in agreement that Irani government has extremely bad for the country as a whole and are very much yearning for democratic change. Vast majority would also agree that the democratic change has to come from inside and not from the United States, and perhaps most importantly, despite the very, very intense frustrations that exist right now, mindful of political repression of the Vining government of its corruption, etcetera. There's a significant leap of faith to be frustrated about that. And then think that Donald Trump, Mike Pompeo and John Bolton, Ardy answers to Yvonne's problems that's libra faith that is just simply to sizable for most people to take. When you hear a president Ruhani of Iran, say, and warning the US do not play with the lion's tail or else you'll regret it and. War with Iran would be the mother of all wars. What's your reaction? I think it's extremely unfortunate. This type of rhetoric is not what's needed in any way, shape or form what is needed right now is diplomacy and it's the party's needs to go back to the table, but we can't at the same time, ignore that it was Donald Trump that walked out of this nuclear deal in started violating it, not the audience. It has Donald Trump and has initiated this esscalation that we're now seeing reached very dangerous levels. If many Iranian Americans want change to come, but they wanted to come from inside Iran, as opposed to regime change from outside, did many of them see the Iran nuclear deal is just prolonging the status quo with the revolutionary guard. Still in these strong positions where they as pump rightly said they operated the kind of government mafia enriching themselves. The vast majority of Yvonne America's wanted to see the nuclear deal, partly because they believe that reduced tensions in opening up Yvonne to the outside world is the best way of supporting the people inside of the von that are pushing for democratic change. The more tensions we have the more pressured more economic sanctions. We have the first people that suffer from that are ordinary people, not division mid cells despite the Cheney and John Bolton's sabre-rattling during the Bush administration will even heard about the specter of a bombing war it. None of that happened. How concerned are you that that could be the outcome of what we're hearing right now?.
