Michael Yorba never stops trying.
For a number of years now he’s been a non-stop promoter of excellence and education for traders, and along the way he’s been a noteworthy pioneer in using the internet as a broadcast medium while he’s opened up new opportunities for improved stock market trading.
He put together the “Commodity Classics” online TV show as a live streaming video feed when a lot of the audience he was trying to reach just didn’t have access to enough bandwidth to make streaming video commonplace.
But Michael kept pushing the envelope, putting out show after show on a live video feed when a lot of other internet communicators were struggling to get pre-recorded video up on their web sites.
In more recent years, with his “Traders Network” program, Michael Yorba has perfected a talk-radio format for his internet broadcasting that consistently delivers high-quality content to listeners around the world. He’s attracted a big international audience.
Since his early days of television experimentation I’ve had the good fortune to be a guest on his shows on a number of occasions, and I’ve always been impressed with Michael’s skill as an interviewer– he has a great way of asking the kind of probing questions that help clarify complicated material and make important concepts clear on the air.
That’s why, when he called me last week to let me know that he was launching a new television show, I was eager to get involved.
His new program is still very much in the test-drive phase, and even though the video technology has vastly improved over the past few years there’s a lot to juggle in getting a live show up and running.
So it wasn’t too surprising that things were a little wild from the video technology end of things when I was a guest on the third episode of his brand-new show yesterday. There are plenty of bugs that still need to be worked out, and I obviously need to get a little more mastery of keeping multiple computer screens going, keeping my facts straight and remembering to look into the camera.
But for what it’s worth, here’s a recording of our shenanigans on the air yesterday. Take a look and share your comments– and remember, you’re getting to see history in the making!
