This is my take as a viewer since the inception of the first Bitcoin Show episode.
Simple put: The Bitcoin Show is a FAILURE because:
6. Taking 20 shows to get an audio issue fixed. Seriously if you can't hear the show what's the point in watching it.
This is the one that killed it for me. I just got done setting up 7 mics for a 22-piece band in a studio and got to control the sound board for an 8 hour rehearsal. I had no idea what I was doing because it was my first time, but everyone in the band complimented me on how well everything went. It's not rocket science. Show after show that Bruce and the guys did the audio was beyond terrible. It was completely unwatchable. You couldn't hear the guests at all in any show I watched. At one point Bruce was holding a cordless phone up to his lapel mic that wasn't even turned on. It was actually being recorded on a mic across the room. At another point they were recording a Skype call...from the output of the TV speakers!! Then it was awesome when all you saw on the video was the camera's OSD showing what settings the noob camera guy had chosen. If you are going to set up a show like that with all the advertising and hype, at least do a little research and testing first. Maybe hire a guy that know's what the hell he is doing?
