When we last checked in with Matt Hill, he was growing a thriving community around his Mixer channel and optimistic about the future. Then Microsoft killed Mixer.
In this episode, we discuss the state of streaming, including a look back at the good things Mixer tried to do, what went wrong, and the first official discussions about it starting to emerge from Xbox leadership. We also take a look at our recent efforts with Discord servers and discuss how studios and other content creators can integrate this option into their community-building and promotional efforts.
