  • Today we're talking about the differences between radio and internet.

  • But I hate the Internet...

  • Well it's cause you don't understand it. Probably.

  • Well, true. Let's talk about that Vid.

  • Hey this is VoiceTube TV and you're watching VidTalk. I'm JR!

  • -I'm Ray, and today we're going to discuss the differences between traditional radio and the Internet. -That's right.

  • So welcome to the new VidTalk, as you can see, we're in a new set-up.

  • Everything brand new.

  • We have a new backdrop, we have a new microphone, new camera.

  • With everything costly a fortune, namely we're burning money.

  • Yeah, true. But something's not changed.

  • The two of us.

  • Yeah it's still JR and Ray.

  • It's still us hosting VidTalk but before we start, I feel obliged that we should offer our audiences some guidance as to what is VidTalk.

  • Why is it called VidTalk?

  • What's going on?

  • So VidTalk, namely VidTalk is Vid Talk, and Vid stands for video. We actually made that up.

  • Yeah, yeah, short for video.

  • Talk is what we're gonna be doing in the video, we're gonna be talking about some videos that are viral on the Internet.

  • and that we've chosen for each episode.

  • We're gonna be talking about it, we're gonna make fun of it, and then we're gonna teach you the English within it!

  • Sounds good.

  • Yeah.

  • -But to be honest, this is not the first time we've worked together. -Right.

  • -Can you see it? Can you see the flow maybe? -We've got that flow~

  • The chemistry?

  • -They'd be like, uh no. -What the heck!

  • So in the past six months me and JR, we've actually worked together on VidTalk, on another version of VidTalk.

  • It was actually on vid... on radio, not video. This is the video. It was on radio before.

  • It was six months ago, we've been doing it for six months already with ICRT radio.

  • That's right.

  • And it was a weekly radio show for thirty minutes for each episode.

  • And as we just mentioned, we would talk about the videos, and then we would break down the English for you and teach you the English within it.

  • That's right.

  • -So today our topic is radio versus internet right? -That's right.

  • But it just happens, me and JR, we are more experienced in either field.

  • So JR he's more experienced in the radio field and I'm more experienced in the Internet.

  • So now we're going to divide up into team radio, team JR.

  • And team Ray, team internet.

  • -And we're going to fight? No we're not gonna fight. -We're gonna debate.

  • -We're gonna talk it over, we're gonna talk it over. -Yeah.

  • So let's start with JR, what do you like about radio in your past experiences?

  • Well I've been a radio host for the past five to six years, it has been such a fun ride,

  • and what I love most about radio is the real-time interaction with your listeners.

  • What do you mean by real-time interaction?

  • Well when you're doing a radio show, you know, according to ACNielsen, you know that there's probably fifty thousand, a hundred thousand people

  • -listening to you at the very same time. -like tuning in right now, oh okay.

  • Right, so you can do a lot of things with them.

  • You can take their phone calls, you can take song requests, you can even interact with them on Facebook while you're doing the show.

  • -Uh huh. -It's a lot of fun.

  • And it can get a little bit nervous and nerve-racking from time to time, even though it is very very exciting.

  • Do you have any concrete examples. Solid examples. Times when you got too much pressure and you just snapped.

  • Well at first, when I started off in 2009. There was one time that was at the very beginning of my career.

  • I ran out of words and I was left speechless, and I just felt like the cat caught my tongue,

  • and I had to hit the commercials immediately. I was like, oh what the heck just happened!?

  • You wanna dig a hole and bury yourself in there.

  • Yeah, I really wanted to dig a hole, or just jump right out of the window.

  • Okay, so I get it, I get it. Sometimes being live on air, having so many people listen to you at that very moment you're speaking,

  • it can get nerve-racking, but besides that. Do you have anything that you don't like about radio.

  • You know, I have to say, no I really love radio.

  • No no, be honest. Really? Nothing?

  • Well if you have to bring it up, if you have to mention something.

  • -Uh huh. -Well, what I don't like about radio is that you can't replay it.

  • -That's right, you can't replay it! -You can't replay it.

  • There are things called podcasts but it's different, it's totally different.

  • -The meaning of radio is real-time interaction. -That's right, that's right.

  • So, for instance, from time to time you would get phone calls, people call you and they make song requests.

  • (girl voice) Can I dedicate a song to my boyfriend, cause I really love him, and it's his birthday. I wanna dedicate a song next hour thank you.

  • And I'm like okay, we'll do that.

  • And the next hour I play the song, and then an hour later she calls in again.

  • (girl voice) I'm so sorry JR, he wasn't listening at that hour, can you do it again?

  • -I'm like... uh I'm sorry. -Do you do it? Do you do it?

  • Do you grant their request and play it again?

  • You know, in that specific case I said, "I'm sorry we're out of time" when I actually had 20 minutes on the clock.

  • -I'm sorry! -You lied

  • I'm sorry I have to confess.

  • How about you though, what about you in doing YouTube?

  • -Cause Ray is a very successful YouTuber. -Moderately successful.

  • -He just started... -Mildly successful.

  • -You just started in January right? -Yeah about that time.

  • But he's very successful right now, so what about it.

  • Okay, we're talking about internet and specifically YouTube.

  • When I see YouTube, when I started YouTube, I can't say I have a long history with YouTube.

  • Well obviously I've been watching YouTube, I've been browsing YouTube for a long time,

  • but I only started to become a "YouTuber", a creator this January.

  • So I have about ten months of experience with YouTube.

  • -And the thing I like most about YouTube is the community. -Oh the community!

  • Right, right. The people.

  • Ok, so when we're talking about community, we all know that in the same community there's always good people and bad people.

  • Do you ever get any bad viewers? People that give you hate comments that rain on your parade, make you feel bad?

  • That's an excellent question, and to answer that question...

  • Wait, do you remember fisherboy123?

  • -How do you know fisherboy? -Fisherboy123

  • How do you know him?

  • -Because that was me. -That was you? Really?

  • You left all those mean comments?

  • No, I'm just kidding!

  • How did you know about fisherboy?

  • -I just happened... I was looking at your YouTube page and... -Did you see his comments?

  • -I saw his comments and he's a very naughty boy. -Oh okay. Yeah, okay. Yeah yeah yeah.

  • Fisherboy123, I remember him. Yes.

  • So you already know the answer to your question, why are you asking. Why do you bother asking me...

  • Just for fun.

  • So yes. I like the community. But there's always... it's like two sides of a coin; there's the good and there's the bad.

  • So sometimes I do get bad comments, for example fisherboy123.

  • So fisherboy123, if you're watching right now.

  • You better fish in another pond.

  • -Wow, that's a good line! -It is right?

  • You better fish in another... pond.

  • -I feel like Liam Neeson right now. -That's a good line.

  • I'll find you and I'll kill you.

  • I'll take away your fishing rod and shove it up your...

  • Your...

  • -And just cut it there. -We should cut it right here.

  • Give good comments.

  • Yeah, please. Also, for our YouTube channel. Because now VidTalk is going to... from radio to video, to this YouTube platform.

  • I hope we don't get any haters.

  • I don't think so.

  • Will you guys? No?

  • -Viewers, you know, please. Don't hate us. -Just be nice, we're good people.

  • -What did we do to you? -We're so innocent.

  • Don't leave bad comments!

  • -Leave good, positive comments! -"Positive energy"!

  • Yeah so today we're talking all about radio and YouTube, so it's VidTalk, so again we're gonna offer you a video.

  • This video is all about the misconceptions of being a YouTuber.

  • So we're going to show you the video first and then we're going to talk about a clip, and we're going to teach you the English within it.

  • How's that sound?

  • Great.

  • -Okay let's check out the video. -Let's do it.

  • And while being a YouTuber is definitely the best hobby slash job ever, there are a lot of misconceptions when it comes to what we actually do.

  • Hey welcome back, this is the section of the weekly challenge!

  • Yay!

  • Now what we do during this part of the show is we issue you a challenge,

  • we actually take a sentence from the video that we just showed you, and we pick a word we want you to make a new sentence out of it.

  • That's right. And today our sentence from the video is, "and while being a YouTuber is definitely the best hobby slash job ever,

  • there are a lot of misconceptions when it comes to what we actually do."

  • Ok so the sentence here. What we want you to make a sentence with is the word "misconception".

  • So first of all, JR, what is the meaning of "misconception"?

  • Misconception means to have a wrong impression, a wrong conception, or a wrong belief about somebody or something.

  • Yeah that's right. You are wrong about someone, you misjudged someone.

  • So misconception, if we look at the word closely, it starts with the prefix "mis", so "mis" as in... "mis"...

  • United States of America.

  • No, I'm thinking about vocabulary words, you're thinking about women.

  • -Oh I'm sorry. I'm so sorry. -Like mistake

  • I just spaced out.

  • -Mistake or like, misunderstanding. -Right right right.

  • So these words, they start with "mis".

  • -Did I misunderstand you? -No, no, you did not. Yeah.

  • Ok so these words they start with "mis", so that means, it's not right in a sense.

  • So misconception, it's a conception that's wrong. So misconception. Hence the word.

  • So we want you to make a sentence with the word misconception and leave it in the comment section below.

  • -But before we do that... -Let's give you an example of it.

  • That's right.

  • Alright so I'm gonna make a sentence and this is what you're gonna do.

  • For instance, people think that... you might think that Ray is not athletic, that is a total misconception.

  • But, but that's true. I'm not athletic...

  • -It is? -Yeah, I don't do sports.

  • I'm so sorry...

  • But, it would be a misconception if it's in JR's case because he loves sports.

  • Oh that's true, yeah I love sports. I come across as a skinny bony person, but I love sports.

  • And he's a really good football player too.

  • So if you wanna play football together this weekend. This is my number.

  • That's right. Wait... you're still talking about numbers and... are you still giving out number to girls or something?
