He’s here: the last episode of Acutelycast‘s three-part Creator Economies series. We’ve explored emerging elements of a creator’s business. We’ve dug deep into creator funds and how massive pools of platform money are changing the way those platforms operate. We dove headlong into the animated creators of the future. We also look at live streaming and why everything from shopping to sleeping is suddenly a big live streaming business.

This week, Acutelys David Pierce is joined by producer Hadley Robinson to explore the wild world of live streaming. From the early days of webcams, live streaming was popular with people who spent all their time online, but it never seemed to catch the mainstream audience. Now you can see thousands or even tens of thousands live tuning into a court case or a high school chemistry class or a Funko Pop collector selling their prized possession at any given time. How did we get to a point where live streaming could become big business? We all encounter that and more on the show.
