Last week (yes, it was only last week!), we did a live Twitch stream and Discord chat for the first presidential debate. The experience was so mania-inducing and surreal that we had no choice but to do it again.
That’s right: we’re having another Twitch stream and subscribers-only Discord chat for tonight’s “adventures with plexiglass”-themed vice presidential debate between Mike Pence and Kamala Harris. Events have somehow become even more brain-pulverizing since Donald Trump and Joe Biden met, so the VP debate is sure to keep the trend going.
It all starts at 8:30 p.m. ET, when we’ll kick off with some pre-show “conversation” before the main event at 9 p.m. ET.
Remember: as subscribers, you get exclusive access to our Discord chat room, where you can talk with us and hundreds of other Discourse Blog community members about the horror unfolding in front of you.
Here’s how to watch:
Here is our Twitch TV page, where the show will be livestreamed. Note: you don’t need to sign up for Twitch to watch the livestream. It will just start playing if you click this link: https://www.twitch.tv/discourseblog
Here’s our Twitter page, where the show will also be livestreamed if you don’t want to watch through Twitch: https://twitter.com/discourse_blog
And HERE is an invite link to the private, subscribers-only Discord server where the conversation will be taking place: https://discord.gg/px8MaTE
This link will open up a Discord web window and prompt you to create an account. Please do so, preferably using the same email you use to subscribe to Discourse Blog (although that shouldn’t matter — the link is what matters).
If you have any problems signing up or onto Discord that you can’t fix though a cursory Google or their tech support, please email firstname.lastname@example.org BEFORE the debate. During the debate, we may be slow to respond as we’ll all be working.
Hope to see you in the chat tonight!
