    These kinds of deeper industry inside discussions are refreshing once in a while, Its interesting to get a peek inside productions. That said, you guys have great group dynamic in your regular podcast format, do not overuse guests in expense of your forte.
    Like you just said in the discussion, quality content, honesty and delivery system to back it up will bring viewers. You guys are doing just that, keep up the good work.

    Civil War in the MCU, no thank you. I didn’t like the premise of the story while it was running, i still don’t like and I don’t want to see it again in any capcity. This would take away from an actual Captain America 3 story. There needs to be more bro-time with Cap and falcon and resolution with Bucky before skipping on to some bs story like Civil War. I do not want to see my heroes fighting each other. I spent years hating Tony Stark/Iron Man with every fiber of my comic loving being starting with the craptastic stories from the 90’s on through the Illumunati, Civil War and more. The Iron Man movies made progress in mending my hate towards Tony, and now they’re just going to bring that all on again. If that’s the case I’m out. What happened to the big build up of Thanos being the big bad? Give me that over my heroes fighting each other, potentially killing each other over politics.

    I keep on forgetting to comment on this fact, but when HBO first launched HBO GO, I was super happy. I was willing to get a subscription just to watch Game of Thrones in an easy to access way. I was incredibly disappointed when I discovered that it was only available for subscribers, and thought it was stupid they weren’t tapping into the huge market of people ready to pay for it.

    I’m pretty sure you’ve seen this already, but HBO just announced that they’re going to make digital subscriptions only an option in 2015. News just broke today. And maybe when it comes around I’ll finally get off my butt and watch GoT.

    I know my posting late, but it will kind of add to my point. I really enjoyed the conversation with Toby Yoshimura. I’m writing as my three year old son in on the floor with my ipod watching Hobby kids TV channel on youtube, so I’ve notice that distribution of media is going to change, but that obvious. Something I think you’re overlooking, is the shift of media becoming more timeless. again. Some of the videos my son is watching are years old. A lot of what Hollywood puts out has to be instantly successfully or it’s dropped. They don’t even pay attention too much to what people are doing now, just to what they want them to do now. I think your right Steve and saying we’re going to get graphic novel style comics, every so often instead of this monthly issues. The patients of people isn’t long enough for cliffhanger to continue. People would rather just rather wait until it’s complete and get it all at once. But what I think and kind of hope they are going to do, is create an interactive experience that can be experienced by people when ever they are viewing it. This could be release day or years later. They are trying with show show, by having people tweet about their shows live but for the people that are DVRing them aren’t getting, this experience. I think if they can create some way of making the viewing experience interactive at the time of viewing no matter how far down the road it is. This is where they would be able to put advertising in the corner of our eyes. While it seems that the next generation of audiences seem like they are too easily distracted, I don’t think that really the problem I think they just want a more active and interactive experience. That they can take in when they want and still get the day one experience any time they want. I hope I got my idea across, sorry I was distracted by my son more then once. I real enjoyed the interview. Thanks
