I get a lot of remarks from streams, both big and small, on how they consistently hit a lot of dead spots in their streams where there isn’t much to talk about. A conversation starter can only go so far, and keeping the chat moving and active can be very challenging no matter your size. One way to fill the gap of silence is to do the occasional stream with a friend! Streaming tends to be a solo activity, but a great way to generate good content and growth is by doing a dual stream with another caster. Today, I’ll break down the benefits of the occasional duo cast, as well as some no-nos.
So what exactly does a dual stream or duo cast entail? A duo cast usually involves you and another broadcaster streaming the same or similar content while talking with each other over a VOIP such as Discord, Skype, or Mumble.
