I looked at the comments. It's ridiculous that she got called out on something like that.

At the same time, she shouldn't have responded with a video like that. It was excruciating to watch. Sometime you just have to let haters hate. Trust me, I know.

I follow her videos and look forward to them. Yea there must have been some petty bitching about that. For what reason I have no idea. Love her videos and glad she does them for land locked wannabes like me to watch and enjoy.

It makes me wonder how much raw or produced video was already "in the can" before it hit YouTube.

Corporate sponsors often want to know what they are getting into before signing on. "Near random" rarely gets funded. I suspect they went to the sponsors with footage in hand.

I realize that the tools for professional quality video editing are easily accessible. But I also realize that accessing audio loops and other resources is easy if you have high speed data connection, but not so sure that shoreline towns in Panama have that available. (Maybe some of the cruisers here can let us know.)

Purely speculation on my part, but I have a feeling that we are watching events that occurred many months ago, and they're dribbling them out on us in a methodical fashion to maximize the dramatic impact. Does Panama have any seasonal changes to their botany that might show up in the videos? It's still enjoyable to see the videos, but their professionalism makes them look sort of like reality TV.

I think Nike's background is brand management and social media marketing. So it would appear that she knows what she's doing with that part of the venture.
Hmm, looks like I was right about production delays and editing done in Europe instead of Panama. I don't think there's anything wrong with that, but it sounds like someone blasted her for it, and it seems to have gotten under her skin:

Dang. I'm already booked at The Hague in January. I'm on a panel with Nobel winner Malala discussing The Pros and Cons of Steel Sailboats.
