Eaton Media Group is pleased to announce a brand new podcast series coming to our YouTube channel, coming in the fall of 2019. Lets Talk Anime is a new series hosted by Joshua Eaton with his special co-host Geneva Eaton.
Anime is often misunderstood by pretty much everyone who has either never seen it or does not understand why “Adults watch cartoons”. This series will review and discuss many of the Anime series as broadcast by Crunchyroll and Funimation. Geneva will provide her commentary on what she likes about each series and which different series she would recommend people to watch. Joshua will provide the adult side of the review looking at deeper and more meaning issues covered in Anime as well as some other series that are NOT suitable for children.
More information on the schedule will be posted later this year as development progresses.
Eaton Media Group is proud to announce a new series to our Played By Canadian Yeti gaming podcast. After some early success with our Mario series so far, it was suggested that we bring in a lot more games and then one evening someone suggested “Why not just review all of them? How many games would that be?”. Well here is your answer!
Back in October 1985, Nintendo released the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) to the North American market. A total of 716 known licensed game titles were released for the NES during its life span, 679 of these games released in North America (if you count Short Order and Eggsplode! as 2 separate games) plus 2 championship cartridges, with an additional 35 released in Europe or Australia.
Join Canadian Yeti and his daughter Yang Wawa as they review and play all 679 titles starting with Nintendo’s 17 launch titles: 10-Yard Fight, Baseball, Clu Clu Land, Duck Hunt, Excitebike, Golf, Gyromite, Hogan’s Alley, Ice Climber, Kung Fu, Pinball, Soccer, Stack-Up, Tennis, Wild Gunman, Wrecking Crew, and Super Mario Bros. and finish up with the final licensed NES game Wario’s Woods, released on December 10, 1994 in North America.

I’ve spent the past few days doing a lot of work, trying to get production values up and learn new software and streamline our production processes. I’ve also taken the time to understand what’s happening around the internet with regards to policies enacted by social media companies, the Canadian government and YouTube.
I want to go over each of these topics to explain what’s going on and what we are going to do about it.
Social Media policy updates –
As many of you already know from my previous post on legal issues and getting permission from Facebook to publish content. There have been many more updates and we are “clear” to continue sharing most of our content on Facebook but Twitter has other plans. Twitter has stepped up its suppression of speech leading up to the Canadian election. Just about anything trending on Twitter is being suppressed if it involves political content of any kind.
I was personally suspended twice (24hours each) from Twitter for “Election interference”. I made 2 tweets about the election, telling people that if they want to change they need to go vote and another tweet telling Americans that here in Nova Scotia we need to show ID to vote, so voter ID laws are not that bad. Facebook as yet to let me know about its policies but God only knows what they will do.
Over on YouTube, a lot of other creators have been demonetized completely for news or political content. They have also been de-ranked and their videos are no longer getting shared. Tim Pool has been talking about this frequently and we find it very disturbing. It makes a lot of our planned videos a “financial black hole”.
Investing in production value –
Since I’m technically the only person who really does any work, I’m under a lot of pressure to do things right and keep improving everything. I’ve invested a lot of money into this and have poured countless hours into learning how to use all the new software and tools. I’ve also had issues with things just not working due to some of the professional-grade hardware I picked up but have found solutions.
Now that the stress of the first release is gone, its time to take a look back and make some serious refinements to just about everything and you can see how much work was done with regards to the previous Mr. Reality Check into video as compared to the one that was released Tuesday.
I’ve got some new hardware coming and some software utilities to get installed, so keep watching for improvements. On a side note, I’m working on designing an entirely new work area here in the house and a proper production studio in the 1 half of our basement.
Suspension of 3 new series –
It’s with great sadness that I have to inform you that I’ve decided to suspend the development of 3 of our political series. Due to some policy changes at YouTube and Twitter, we are going to suspend the Parliamentary Report, State of the Union and People’s Congress until 2020.
Parliamentary Report will not be published even though I’ve already written 17 episodes. It won’t be published due to issues with the already mentioned policies but also because the Canadian Government has issued new social media rules that could see our accounts “banned” or “restricted” even though we already have the approval to publish on their platforms.
The State of the Union may not be affected because it was due for launch in 2020 anyway.
People’s Congress is a major issue do to Hong Kong and threats from the Chinese government. I’ve made the decision to hold off until things calm down so there will be less risk to my family.
It’s one thing to make videos that I enjoy, it’s another to make videos that will never make a dime. Due to the demonetization policies of YouTube I’ve decided that we need to focus on content that will allow us to make a profit so we can establish the channel and build a fan base.
We are going to focus on family-friendly content for now and have something in mind to save our News & Political commentary programs.
I guess what I’m saying is that I can’t produce something that I know is not going to make us any money and will not help grow the channel. Once we are fully able to monetize the channel, things should change.
Thanks for reading,

The Eaton Media Group is proud to announce another amazing addition to our podcast lineup. FrostTek Reviews is scheduled to launch over the next 2 weeks as soon as we complete testing of our first software package that was downloaded and installed today!
The goal of this podcast series is to act as a filter between the marketing nonsense from companies and consumers. We will offer a non-bias review of different software programs and types of hardware to help the consumers make better purchasing decisions. A lot of companies make wild claims and use marketing lingo that is often hard to understand for the average user.
This podcast will cover a wide array of content and will provide reviews for personal purchases (non-paid), sponsored reviews (free product) as well as paid advertising as long as the paid advertising will allow us to present the product in a non-bias fashion.
We have yet to make a decision as to the frequency of the release of new episodes. More information will follow as we wrap up testing and prepare to launch our first podcast.

This will be an adventure of a lifetime, at least until Halo Infinite is released.
