Here’s what I do when I livestream:

* I assemble my thoughts and make notes
* I check sound levels
* I check restream to see how many are watching and where and if stream is propagating
* I check twitter and email
* I check my phone for texts and calls
* I check video quality/greenscreen
* I check guests’ sound and video
* I line up guests and give them questions and topics in advance when I can
* I have back up video ready to roll when I need to take a break
* I keep an eye on the chat
* I have stories lined up

I rarely do anything in the rest of my life that is as demanding and exhausting as live streaming.
