How Do You Stay Sane While Streaming?

How do you stay sane while moderating a lively Youtube discussion? How do you balance the competing needs of your audience, your ethics, and your guests? We can’t control other people, and yet we all exert a force field. We can’t force people to do what we want, but we influence others. Dennis Prager, for example, emits a strong moral force field. When Dennis walks into a room, people stand up and pay attention. They are profoundly affected by his presence. My force field, however, is weak.

Tehrani comments: You should be bloody proud to have created a channel where the audience gets to hear from so many diverse, strange & bizarre people.

It’s one of the weirdest, thought provoking channels I’ve ever encountered on YT.

I hope I don’t come off too stalkingly admirable, but I think the the lyrics to Radiohead’s ‘Creep’ come to mind when ever I listen to your streams.

As a fan, I don’t think I’m alone in relating to the following lyrics when listening to your streams, shows & ‘driving while advising’ vids:

“CREEP” – RadioHead
When you were here before
Couldn’t look you in the eye
You’re just like an angel
Your skin makes me cry
You float like a feather
In a beautiful world
And I wish I was special
You’re so fuckin’ special
But I’m a creep, I’m a weirdo.
What the hell am I doing here?
I don’t belong here.
I don’t care if it hurts
I want to have control
I want a perfect body
I want a perfect soul
I want you to notice
When I’m not around
You’re so fuckin’ special
I wish I was special
But I’m a creep, I’m a weirdo.
What the hell am I doing here?
I don’t belong here.
She’s running out again,
She’s running out
She’s run run run run
Whatever makes you happy
Whatever you want
You’re so fuckin’ special
I wish I was special
But I’m a creep, I’m a weirdo,
What the hell am I doing here?
I don’t belong here.
I don’t belong here.
