First off, happy International ASMR Day! It’s become the norm to drop the “international” bit seeing as this is a given – experiencers live all around the world!
ASMR Day began on Monday, April 9, 2012 at 12:00 AM GMT, and will continue on until 12:00 AM on Tuesday, April 10, 2012. The time differences hindered the ASMR Radio part of the event a bit, which had its first official broadcast to tie in with the event. There were also some technical issues on the main site as well as some difficulties experienced by people trying to listen in live (browser complications, etc.). Despite this, at one point, according to the ASMR Radio Facebook group, reportedly 200 people were able to tune in via the streaming service on the main website and iTunes, so that’s quite remarkable actually!
For those who missed the live broadcast, I’ve learned that podcasts will be made available for you over at IlseTheWaterdrops’s YouTube channel. Some are still holding out for downloadable mp3s which can even be played while offline as we all know, but the availability of these in future has yet to be confirmed.
Nevertheless, once again, happy ASMR Day, and thanks to all who were involved by either joining the event, participating on any of the Facebook groups we have and discussing it, and not to mention those who organised the event and the Radio broadcast. I’m sure we’ll all look forward to seeing more live broadcasts in future!
