When we did an hour this Monday on the new streaming video service, Facebook Live, we had originally intended to broadcast portions of our preparation on the service itself. It didn't happen, for a variety of boring and unimportant internal reasons, but we did try out Facebook Live before our Friday conversation on new techniques to make cooking easier and less frightening for amateur chefs. We posted two videos (here and here) and we're pretty pleased with the results. Were you? Would this kind of behind the scenes, show prep video glimpses into the world of On Point interest you? We'd wager the answer is "Yes!" (or at least "Probably, depends on what I'm doing at the time!"), but we want your feedback. Let us know, in the comments below, or on Facebook, Tumblr and @OnPointRadio, and stay tuned for more live video from our team soon!
